L'occitane Verbena Summer Secret Moisturizing Body Gel 250ml MYR 111
( Bought at discounted price MYR 77 )
It is seldom that I would buy L'occitane's stuffs at their normal retail price. Personally, I feel that the pricing is a bit on the high side for something as simple as a body lotion. However, during one of their recent sale, I managed to grab some discounted stuffs and this is one of them. A sniff of this won me over!
I have always been a fan of their Verbena range but this scent is at a different dimension. It is both refreshing and just makes you feel 'oh so good'.
Enriched with organic Verbena extract from Corsica and refreshing agents, this moisturizing body lotion has a melting texture that envelopes the body with a fresh and aromatic bouquet of scents. Thanks to its unique jelly-like texture, skin is left supple and delicately perfumed with the aromatic and fresh Verbena fragrance notes. Ideal for an invigorating break!
Let's start with what I like. The first thing that I liked about this body gel is the scent. Yes, it had me at the first sniff! It is so wonderfully refreshing and aromatic without being overpowering sweet. It is just nice and the scent is lasting too...Secondly, I like the consistency of the body gel as it absorbs easily to your skin and does not leave the sticky icky feeling. It pretty much hydrates the skin pretty well too.
Now, moving on to what I dislike. It is a Limited Edition product and from what I heard, they have already discontinue this gel. Boo! I would rather they keep this and discontinue the citrus verbena range instead. Secondly, the price! I think I would not purchase this if it is not at a discounted price. MYR 111 is a pretty steep price to pay for a body gel.
It is a pretty decent body gel and I find that this is good to use on those days that are hot and humid. It does leave a slight cooling sensation upon application and I love the lasting scent of this body gel. I also like that this is not heavy and it keeps your skin hydrated throughout the day. I am giving this a rating of 4 out of 5.
