L'Occitane au Bresil Jenipapo Shower Oil & Body Lotion
With the World Cup being held in Brazil this year it is no surprise that many brands have Brazil inspired offerings.
One of my favourite skincare brands L' Occitane have created a delightful limited collection of bath and body products inspired by and made from Brazilian ingredients. Two plants are featured in the range - Jenipapo - a citrus tree from the Cerrago region, it seeks the sun and soaks up energy and Vitoria Regia - a water lily from the Amazon that falls asleep at dawn and blooms when night falls. In addition the artwork for the packaging was created in colloboration with local, talented illustrators.
The results, a bright and colourful collection with suitably inspiring scents.
Today I feature two items from the Jenipapo bath and body collection but later this week there will be more....
Jenipapo range -
Jenipapo flowers contain a scent with green, floral, fruity notes. Notes of citrus , watermelon and pina coloda follow with lily of the valley and frangipani trees. Finally, the scent rests with a blend of musk, sandalwood and vanilla.
The result is a delicious and sparkling fruity floral scent that explodes with the sweet smell of Summer.
Jenipapo Shower Oil 250ml £14
It is no secret that the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil is my holy grail bath product and this is a similar product. A shower oil that emulsifies in contact with water to become a milky liquid that cleanses and softens skin whilst leaving skin with a most wonderful fruity scent.
Summer in a bottle.
Jenipapo Body Lotion 250ml £20
The body lotion also contains the same scent so is ideal for layering. It is a really light lotion that absorbs pretty much instantly.
L'Occitane au Bresil range is available now
