Review: L'Occitane Sorbet Verbena Refreshing Mist & Cooling Gloss

Happy Sunday sweets!

L'Occitane have recently launched their Limited Edition Summer collection named 'Sorbet Verbena' and i had the opportunity to try a couple of products from the collection. 

The main product in the collection is the Sorbet Verbena Eau De Toilette that is a citrus fragrance with top notes of lime and grapefruit. The other products in this collection are also based around this.

I was sent the L'Occitane Refreshing Mist* and the Cooling Gloss*. 

'The Sorbet Verbena Fresh Mist is an alcohol-free formula that intensely refreshes the skin and maintains its hydration level, leaving behind a delicate perfume with summery notes of citrus and mint. Energize yourself with this mist, which contains an organic verbena extract from Corsica. 
Packaged in a convenient travel-sized bottle, this mist is perfect to keep with you throughout the day'.

I have never really tried a cooling face mist before however this L'Occitane one is extremely refreshing and leaves my skin feeling hydrated. This would be great in blistering heat (which i cant say we have had recently in the UK) but i will be packing this up and taking it with me on my travels. I have been spritzing this after cleansing an toning to leave my skin feeling fresh and waking me up on early mornings. 

In line with the theme of products in this range the refreshing mist has a citrus scent. It is lightly scented as it contains lemon and mint essential oils but it isnt overpowering at all. Its also a handy 50ml size and retails for £10. 
'The Sorbet Verbena Cooling Gloss not only moisturises lips, but also provides a cooling sensation, perfect especially during the heat of summer! 
Enriched with shea butter, this gloss also provides nourishment and protection'.

As the name suggests this is a cooling lipgloss and instantly cools as soon as it hits your lips. It comes in a handy sized squeezy tube and goes on and stays clear. It gives a glossy finish to the lips and is by no means sticky at all. It does go on quite gel like and a little bit wet but it quickly absorbs into your lips. 

It comes in a 15ml tube and retails for £8.
The L'Occitane Sorbet Verbena Collection is available to buy now for a limited time only.

  1. Ah I love anything with a citrus lemon scent, I find it really refreshing. This would make a good alternative to the Caudalie Elixir I am imagining!
