Lucky for me I didn't have to buy it, and I love it all the more, knowing that my boyfriend got it for me. It makes it more special.
I will show you why I am so crazy about this little bottle.
Firstly, it comes in this cute pink box which I think is so pretty that I don't want to throw it away. So I think I may keep this for display purposes.
I absolutely love the little atomizer bottle the shimmer powder is in, I think it is gorgeous and really like the vintage touch. It's one of those items that may not be that practical in everyday life (I really don't need to wear shimmer powder on a daily basis, as much as I might want to) but I still want it to be on display because of how pretty it looks!
The powder itself is stunning, it is really delicate and catches the light beautifully. This product is perfect for wearing on your shoulders, arms and legs on a night out and makes your skin sparkle without being over the top. You can also spray it in your hair and it looks really pretty.
I am not a massive fan of rose scented things because I think it is a very old fashioned and over powering smell, but this is a lovely soft powdery rose fragrance and is very delicate, so if like me you are not that keen on rose, I'm sure you will like this because it is a much more soft, wearable scent.
There isn't much point in me photographing the product on my skin as it really wouldn't show up on camera, but trust me it looks amazing in person. I would suggest you go into a L'Occitane store and try some if you are interested in this, then you can see just how pretty it is!
I also love the attention to detail L'Occitane pay when packaging your purchases. They pop it in a lovely little paper bag with some tissue paper that they fragrance, which I think is a really nice touch. I also received a lot of tester sachets in the bag as well which was really nice.
I am really looking forward to trying out some more of their products, as the things I had a sniff of in store were lovely! Especially their honey fragranced mother and baby range, it was so good. Who says you have to have a baby to use it!
