L'Occitane Verbena

An impromptu day off work yesterday led me the lovely sunny Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth where I stumbled into the L'Occitane outlet store. Like most others, I am really trying to tighten my belt & reign myself in with spending on products, however couldn't resist this Verbena liquid soap bargain, after all soap is a necessity isn't it.

A litre and a half (1 x pump dispenser & 2 x refills) of Verbena liquid soap for £24.10 I would have been a fool to resist :))
I love this and it can always be found in my bathroom. A  gorgeous delicate, fresh scent that reminds me of sherbert lemon sweets.... its any excuse to wash my hands!
A little goes a long way and I can honestly say with 2 of us using as a hand-wash only, 500mls lasts for more than a couple of months.

I have used this in the shower, and have to say it did feel a little drying on my skin, I probably wouldn't use in this way again, but as a hand-wash it always leaves my hands feeling soft and clean with a delicate refreshing fragrance.

For anyone visiting the south coast over the next few weeks, I would really recommend a trip to Gunwharf.
Outlet stores, bars and restaurants a plenty, if you get the right weather, it really does feel like you're on holiday Gunwharf Quays
Great for me as it's right on my doorstep :)) Give me a shout and we can share a pitcher of cocktails or 2!


  1. Gotta love a bargain! Those refills are a really good idea!

    1. Always looking for a bargain :)) xx

  2. My Boyfriends Mum has this and I used it as shower gel when I stay. Such lovely soap. I also love the cocoa one that they do - in the solid soap.

    Much love: I am trying to get my followers up so any follow is appreciated.


    1. Great site - you have another follower :)) xx
