If you're the kind of person that loves to sip on lemon or lime based ice drinks when the temps get high, I've discovered a new line of bath and body products from L'Occitane that will keep you ultra cool, refreshed and smelling divine this summer! L'Occitane Frisson Verbena is based on a fragrance from the Provence Verbena leaves, which are picked at the peak of summertime.
These leaves are found near water like rivers ans streams, and the sparkling, zesty Frisson Verbena fragrance in the line blends top notes of lemon and bergamot, with fresh verbena and cucumber. My favorite product to cool down and refresh is the Frisson Verbena Fresh Shower Gel (shown, above). The gel is silky, thick and concentrated and makes wonderful soft foaming lather.
What I especially loved is how moisturizing the gel felt on my skin as I was cleansing. After rinsing, the refreshing scent lingered nicely and my skin was soft and hydrated. Another great feature of this gel is because Verbena is a bit more of a traditionally "masculine" citrus note, this is perfect for women AND men -so pick up some for yourself and the man in your life.
The Frisson Verbena Refreshing Mist (shown, left), is a perfect summer fragrance to layer on after the shower gel. It's alcohol free so the mist also kept my skin soft and supple. It's perfect to add on just pulse points on all over the body/hair for added fragrance.
I keep mine in the refrigerator for added cooling and refreshing, especially at the end of the day or after a long day outside/beach/pool/workout It's also is a very travel friendly bottle (1.7 oz) perfect for all your summer getaways! Since it's a mist, this does not have the staying power of the Eau de Toilette, but is great for quick scent refreshing, or of course layering with other products in the line- RLB
The Frisson Verbena line also includes: Frisson Verbena Gel for Legs and Feet (another favorite of my hubby's!), Eau de Toilette, Body Gel, Hand Cream and more.
