EEEK! l’Occitane NON Bargains!

***UPDATE: You’d think it’d be safe to write a post a day in advance, but no! Apparently not! So the post below is now basically a teaser as to what you could have got had I posted this yesterday instead! Doh. Sorry. The Verbena offer still stands though…***

I have been trying to steer clear of the sales for the last week or so because I have an addiction to them that borders on a medical condition. I cannot resist a bargain.

Finally, though, I’ve been ‘had’. l’Occitane have my most favourite ever range in the sale – one that I thought had completely disappeared off the face of the earth! The Calanques range is absolutely beautiful – I posted about it when it was new, you can read about it here: Calanques, Buoy-Oh-Buoy

I love everything about the range, from the scent right down to the look of the packaging. There’s only the body scrub (above) and the body milk left, but both have a full 50% off, making them £13 and £9 respectively.

That was my main cause of excitement, but have a good browse – there are some very cute little things to be had at knock-down prices, including the Green Tea Fizzy Sugar Cubes:

a steal at £1.50, and the prettily packaged Green Tea with Jasmine soap,

down to £2.25 for 100g! These would be particularly good to stock up on for last-minute gifts as and when you need them throughout the year. One of these, wrapped up with a good paperback novel? A brilliant little present!

Until the 29th of Feb, if you spend £30 or more you get a free Verbena set worth £20 – it includes a shower gel, body lotion and soap. The Verbena range is gorgeous! Just quote the code ADY24 at checkout.

    L’Occitane often has great sales, I stock up from the last sale and still have inventory. I need to stay away this time:)

    Hi!! I’ve just been browsing the web and can’t find these amazing offers… The Calanques body scrub is prized at L26… :(

    Unfortunately there is no “Sale” section on the L’Occitane site and the Calanques scrub appears to be back to full price, suggesting the sale has closed.
    Thanks for the Verbena freebie code though & loving Mr Bear!
