L’Occitane, the ruler when it comes to shea butter, verbena, and almond – at least in my book! – always has great holiday gifts, limited edition sets, and stocking stuffers. Better yet, they’ve got a ton of value sets so you can load-up on favorites for yourself. Holiday Hands Trio ($25) and Shea Travel Treasures($40) are two of the current stand-outs and they’ve got a Shea Butter Hand Cream Collector’s Edition ($26) that you can get someone who is truly obsessed with the cult product (not that I encourage hoarding empty hand cream tubes!). The limited edition design, inspired by traditional bogolan fabric, also comes on pocket-sized hand creams, lip balm tubes, and body cream jars. Another buy worth singling out is an online-only Sephora exclusive called Best of L’Occitane. It’s $75 and valued at $104, which may not be the most jaw-dropping value, but it’s stocked with great products and zero fillers.
Lastly, every year L’Occitane comes out with a fundraising soap for the NGO Orbis and this year it’s a super cute airplane-shaped one ($6) that comes in baby blue or light pink. At a cost of just $6 each, they’re near impossible to resist especially since all proceeds go to charity.
