L'Occitane Verbena shower gel with fresh citus scent

You are about to read a very light and refreshing, just perfect for a Sunday in summer post. Well, at least in my opinion. I wanted to introduce you to L'Occitane Verbena shower gel with fresh citrus scent.

Prepare yourself for a lot of photos. I enjoyed our photosession waaay too much!

This is how L'Occitane describes it:
"The Verbena Shower Gel has a fresh citrus scent that is loved equally by men and women. Each squeeze of the non-breakable plastic bottle releases the crisp aroma of L'OCCITANE Verbena. Essential oils of verbena, orange, geranium and lemon tree smooth and nurture even the most sensitive skin, and permeate the room with a winning aroma."

A little bit more about verbena....
"Considered as a miraculous plant in ancient times and used in magical rituals, lemon verbena was believed to heal all ills and drive away the evil eye. The Romans used it as a love potion, calling it the herb of Venus. As an infusion of dry leaves immersed in boiling water and left to infuse for about ten minutes, verbena reveals itself to be both calming and sleep promoting. Ideal before bed, it makes an excellent natural sleeping pill. Taken after meals, it aids digestion. But verbena also seduces gourmets when it features in ice creams and sorbets."

For me, this is an amazing choice of shower gel for summer... But, I didn't choose it myself. It was given to me as a gift from a friend. And what a great gift it is!
Then, it was on hold for some time and a couple of weeks ago I tried it. Love was in the air!!! An amazing and extremly refreshing, beautiful, fresh scented shower gel! My 500 ml bottle is huge but with every push of that little pump I am afraid to use it up too quickly. That is how much I love it!!! Crazy.

As I already mentioned, it smells like lemons. Organic, just picked from the tree, yellow looking lemons... Beautiful... The scent offers a clean and fresh feeling on your skin but it doesn't stay on it too long. I wish it would!

When applied, it doesn't foam up a lot but it cleans nicely and there's a silky feeling of it on the skin. I never experienced any dryness after it, on a contrary, my skin is soft to the touch.

In my opinion, this shower gel is a great choice for any time of year but during summer it is just perfect!

Verbena line offers many products like this shower gel, body lotions, soaps, hand cream, fragrance, candle, foaming bath... But this shower gel is currently available on L'Occitane's Croatian website in two sizes: 75 ml (44,20 kn/5.82 Euros/4.13 GBP/6.44 $) and 250 ml (116,50 kn/15.34 Euros/11 GBP/17 $).

All of these shower gels come in plastic bottles with imprinted verbena leaf, and my 500 ml version is the only one which has a very handy pump on top.

If you like lemony scents and are in search for something refreshing, you have to try this! As you can see, I am in love...

What do you think? Something for you? Have you already tried it? Interested? Maybe something else from Verbena line? What are your summer choices?

Tell me...

Love, beautyandbrains007
