L’Occitane Verbena Shower Gel and Citrus Verbena Sorbet Body Cream: Here’s to an Indian Summer


There’s something about the fresh scent of verbena, grapefruit, lemons, and oranges that makes me want to hold on to summer. After a long, hot day, nothing is more refreshing than citrus wafting by. These intoxicating Verbena products by L’Occitane are just what I’m counting on to extend my fun-in-the-sun days.

The Verbena shower gelicon ($20) (for women and men) explodes with a crisp, invigorating aroma. This gentle shampoo for the body cleans and softens the skin while reviving it with its fruity fragrance. And I love that it comes in a squeeze-able plastic bottle – not to worry if you drop it while basking in the scent!

I’m not sure if I should keep the Citrus Verbena Sorbet body creamicon ($35) in my freezer or bathroom. It smells and looks good enough to eat. This rich, sumptuous, yet light, cream smoothes and hydrates the skin, and then perfumes it with rejuvenating grapefruit and organic verbena. It’s a delicious treat for the skin – and senses. Use it after showering with the gel and you’ll stay summer-fresh well into the fall!
