L'Occitane collaboration with Rifle Paper Co!

Beauty and stationery - two of my favourite things ever and when they collaborate the way L'Occitane and Rifle Paper Co have, it gives me all the feels.  Anna Bond, Rifle Paper Co's creative director designed the packaging for some of L'Occitane's best known shea products, each one reflecting the beauty of Provence.  I've never been to Provence but I feel like I need to go, take these products with me and take all of the photos!

As much as I give myself the ultimate cringe balls when I say this, I'm going to say it.  I love gorgeous packaging with beauty products.  I do.  And the Rifle Paper Co collection is made for displaying on your bedside table, on your vanity, on your desk and I'd be willing to bed you'd probably keep it for "good use" because of its beauty.  It was made for Instagram!

The Shea Butter range is one of L'Occitane's finest, in my humble opinion, having saved my scaldy hands and body many a time.  When I want to give my skin a hardcore boost in the colder months, I reach for them year after year.  And now I have whopper skincare that looks cute too!

This little travel set containing an ultra rich body cream, an ultra rich body scrub, a hand cream with four dinky postcards, all in pretty tin, at €30, it's a really lovely gift for someone or a loved one, and a nice entry level way to start your L'Occitane journey if you're new to the brand.

L'Occitane is famous for their Shea hand cream and now I've even more of an excuse to reach for it!  Isn't it looking beautiful now, all prettied up!  It's €23 and I rarely get a look in with this hand cream at the best of times because Mam loves it so much, so I'm hiding this one from her.  My desk needs cute products!

I wanted to include the Milk Shea Butter Solidarity Soap (€5) in the post because it's a lovely idea in that for each soap purchased, one year of vitamin A for three children goes to UNICEF's International Vitamin A Supplementation Programme.  In developing countries, up to 500,000 children go blind due to vitamin A deficiency, so it's great that 100% of profits go towards this cause.

I haven't tried L'Occitane's Rose Shea Butter Hand Cream (€10) yet but I'm going to keep this one in my handbag.  The packaging is beautiful, and I think it's my favourite of the whole collection and it goes perfectly with the Rose Shea Balm (€10) which can be used on lips, cuticles and any dry patches you have.  One of my missions this year is to look after my cuticles more and now I've no excuses!

I know Mother's Day is a couple of months away, but the set would make a beautiful gift.  And there's most definitely the option of doing a bit of self gifting too.  If you're new to L'Occitane or have yet to try out their Shea collection, this is a great way of starting out. 

Do any of these products tickle your Provence loving pickle?
