Today I'd like to talk about a newly launched range from L'Occitane En Provence called Verveome Agrumes, or Citrus Verbena.

The range includes a number of body products, as well as shampoo and conditioner and a fragrance. I'll be talking about the Shampoo, Body Milk and Eau de Toilette..

Verbena is a lemony herb that grows in Provence, and in this range, L'Occitane combines this naturally zesty Verbena with lemon and grapefruit to create a fresh, sparkling and zesty fragrance. And as my favourite scent without a doubt is zesty citrus, I was sold even before trying the products!!!

The L'Occitane Verveine Agrumes Fresh Shampoo is a shampoo that is intended for daily use, as it is so gentle that it cleanses your hair and scalp with drying it out or irritating it. The Verbena extract along with the lemon essential oil helps restore the softness, shine and vitality of the hair. And as well as leave my hair feeling very soon and clean, without being squeaky, it also leaves it with the most beautiful fresh scent that keeps lingering for hours after I've washed my hair My long hair, seriously in need of a good hair cut, does require a little more moisture than this shampoo offers, but then again, it's nothing that a good intense hair masque can't fix!

The L'Occitane Verveine Agrumes Fresh Body Milk is such a light body milk that absorbs into the skin immediately, yet in spite of its thin and light consistency, it surprisingly still manages to leave my skin feel deeply moisturised, soft and smooth. It of course also contains the verbena extract, as well as the lemon essential oils and grapefruit extract, and I absolutely love how it leaves my skin with such a beautiful zesty fragrance, so beautiful that I cannot stop smelling my own skin.

Finally, the L'Occitane Verveine Agrumes Eau de Toilette, is such beautiful zesty and fruity fragrance that also has been enriched with the verbena, along with orange extract as well as lemon and orange essential oils. It is such a uplifting and energetic fresh scent. The nature of the fragrance makes it very light, and I think that most would probably find it best used during spring and summer, although personally, I love using light and fresh scents all year round. Light scents usually don't have an as long wear as more heavy ones, yet I still feel that it has a good wear of several hours, although I do feel the need to reapply at the end of the day, but that said, I think it pretty standard for most Eau de Toilette. And using the matching Body Milk with the Eau de Toilette helps extend and enhance the scent of both of them.

Overall, I really enjoy using these products, it is a beautiful extension to L'Occitane's already large product range. In particular I enjoy using the body and the Eau de Toilette, and can see myself reaching for these again and again over the coming months, also especially if I feel like I need a bit of an 'energy' boost in the mornings when I'm feeling extra tired.

As mention above, there are other several products available it the range, and I wouldn't hesitate repurchasing the body milk and the Eau de Toilette, as well as one of the hand creams wouldn't go astray!!
