Hope your week is going great. A couple of weeks ago, I made a huge haul at L’Occitane and that included plenty of soaps 🙂 The fragrance when we walked in the store was so calming and exciting at the same time, we HAD to get them 🙂 If you have been to a L’Occitane store, you know what I mean, right? I did pick a lot of things from there, but I am very excited about the soaps 🙂
The Vetiver Wood Soap is a daily cleanser for the hands and body. This sizable 5.3 ounce bar of soap is long-lasting, its pebble shape fitting conveniently into the hand. When applied with water, it produces a smooth foam that gently cleanses the skin without drying. Pleasantly fragranced with vetiver, the soap leaves behind a refreshing scent with notes of leather and musk.
5.2 oz for $10.

My Experience with L’Occitane Vetiver Wood Soap:
This actually is a soap marketed for men and has a nice woody smell to it, very very alluring 🙂 It smells a lot similar to sandalwood, so even I was attracted to it 🙂 Hubby loved it and asked me to stay away. He said “you have so much other stuff – steer clear of my soap :P:P:P,” but I did use it when he was at work :happydance: and even I loved it. It lathers well and is big enough, so it lasts long 🙂 Also, do you notice in a lot of “fragrant” soaps, where the scent lasts only for the first use and then its just a rough soap bar, not in this case. I guess they put a lot of scented oils in this, so after every use, my bathroom is filled with a delightful woody aroma, which is very very irresistible. It can cause you to beg your guy to not go to work! :preen:
Pros of L’Occitane Vetiver Wood Soap:
- The smell, ahhhhhhhh.
- Although its marketed for men, even women can use it 🙂
- Its huge, will last for a long time.
- No sulfates/silicones, SLS.
Cons of L’Occitane Vetiver Wood Soap:
- As it is a soap, can be a bit drying, but a normal body lotion can take care of that.
- The cost is a bit high.
This is an excellent gift idea for the guy in your life. Actually, if you like sandalwood kind of smell, this is a great buy 🙂
