Is it me or has there been a real surge in French beauty brands lately, they seem to be having a bit of a moment in the industry which makes me very happy indeed as I’ve always been a french beauty brand lover! Whenever I visit France the first thing I do (immediately after chomping down a freshly basked croissant- obvs) is find the nearest pharmacy, everyone knows that French pharmacies always have the most incredible range of beauty brands – I love picking new french beauty products I haven’t tried before and this is one of my favourite ways to do it!

I’m obsessed with Avenu for their micellar water and La Roche-Posay for their Cicaplast Baume B5 healing cream but my go-to French brand of all time has to be L’Occitane. There are too many products to list my faves but I especially love the relaxing pillow mist (smells divine and is the perfect remedy for a great nights sleep) and I’ve always used the Shea Butter hand cream keeps hands so nourished and soft- my mum has always told me to apply hand cream as much as possible as aged hands are the biggest age giveaway!

I’ve recently started putting my christmas gift list together and wanted to share a beauty gift box by L’Occitane perfect for your best friend, work colleague or even makes a lovely little Christmas gifts for mums. 

There are so many lovely beauty gift boxes available on the site and in-store too but my fave is definitely the Almond body products gift box including the shower oil, milk concentrate, soap and hand cream- I love the way the products when used together make my skin feel. All of the products are natural and feel so luxurious on the skin.

Its the best gift to give your favourite person the perfect excuse to pamper themselves- especially if they love the nourishing gorgeous feel of almond. Also the packaging is gorgeous too!! So no need to worry about wrapping it up.
