L'Occitane surprise box review

loccitane-surprise-box-for-her-review
This is the second time when I have received the L'Occitane Surprise Box for her! Some of you might remember the first time when I reviewed their surprise box and some of you even might remember how impressed I was!
I think that L'Occitane is a brand that doesn't need much of introduction cause the brand has been around since 1976 and definitely has proven itself with amazing quality, great prices and good old french charm! I was very excited when a representative from L'Occitane Latvia contacted me and asked me whether I want to try out their new surprise box! And since I had a really great experience with the previous one, I surely said yes! To those who are not familiar with this surprise box, it is basically a small beauty skincare product box that contains several L'Occitane products ( this month there were 4 products) and some product samples! The products of this box are originally worth 29 euros, but you can get it on sale for 17.40 euros, which I believe is a really good deal! I am not 100% sure whether L'Occitane provides these kind of surprise boxes in other countries- but you can read more information about that on L'Occitane homepage.

Šī ir otrā reize, kad rakstu atsauksmi par L'Occitane Pārsteiguma kastei VIŅAI! Iespējams, Jūs atceraties pirmo reizi, kad es aprakstīju šāda veida pārsteiguma kastīti un, iespējams, pat atceraties, cik ļoti man arī tā patika!
Manuprāt, L'Occitane ir zīmols, kuram nav nepieciešama īpaša iepazīstināšana, jo uzņēmums darbojas jau aptuveni 30 gadus ( kopš 1976. gada) un ir pierādījis sevi ar augsto produktu kvalitāti, labajām cenām un nezūdošo franču šarmu! Es biju ļoti priecīga, kad pārstāve no L'Occitane Latvia sazinājās ar mani un piedāvāja izmēģināt jauno L'Occitane pārsteiguma kastīti! Tā ir neliela izmēra, kurā ir iespējams atrast pāris L'Occitane produktu (šajā kastītē tādi bija četri), kā arī dažus produktu paraudziņus! Šīs kastītes oriģinālā vērtība ir 29 eiro, bet pašlaik to var iegādāties par akcijas cenu jeb 17.40 eiro, kas, manuprāt, ir diezgan izdevīgs piedāvājums! 
orchidee-body-milk-loccitane
orchidea-loccitane-body-milk
Neroli & Orchid Body milk
I must admit, this is definitely my favorite product of this box! Why my favorite, you might ask? THE SCENT! It is truly heavenly, if I would have to guess how paradise smells like, I would say that it smells like this body milk! The combination of neroli and orchids is truly amazing, I definitely applaud the creator of this product as the scent is sweet, but not too sweet, and has these amazing floral notes in it and, well, you know how obsessed I am with florals!
The size of this product is 50ml, which is perfect for traveling- I do wish I had it with myself when I traveled to Canary islands! When I'll be finished with this bottle, I will definitely pay a visit to L'Occitane store and buy myself another one, hopefully in 175ml ( right now it shows that it is out of stock :/ )!

Šis ķermeņa pieniņš pavisam noteikti ir mans mīļākais kastītes produkts! Kāpēc? SMARŽA! Šim pieniņam tā patiešām ir lieliska, un, ja man kāds jautātu kā smaržo paradīze, es pavisam noteikti atbildētu, ka tā smaržo tieši kā šis ķermeņa pieniņš! Neroli un orhideju kombinācija ir burvīga, un es apsveicu šī produkta veidotājus, jo tie ir ieguvuši smaržu, kas ir salda, bet ne pārāk salda, un kurā ir burvīgas ziedu un citrusa notis! Un Jūs jau ziniet, kā man patīk ziedi - gan dabā, gan audumu apdrukās un smaržās, kā arī kosmētikā!
Šī pieniņa iepakojuma izmērs ir 50ml, kas, manuprāt, ir ļoti piemērots ceļojumiem, un pašlaik nedaudz nožēloju, ka man tas nebija līdzi pirms mēneša, kad devos uz Kanāriju salām! Kad es izlietošu šo iepakojumu, noteikti došos uz L'Occitane veikalu un nopirkšu vēl vienu, cerams, ka izdosies to nopirkt 175ml izmērā ( pašlaik, apmeklējot mājaslapu secināju, ka pašlaik šāds izmērs nav noliktavā pieejams :/)!
loccitane-perfumed-soap
Neroli & Orchid soap
What I love about this soap is the fact that long after I have washed my hands I can still sense the lovely scent! The scent is very similar to the one that the body milk has ( & why wouldn't it be, since both products are from the same line :D ), but the soap had a bit more citrus notes in it ( neroli is produced from the blossom of the bitter orange tree) and since I loved it so much, I put the soap on my table and just enjoyed the scent that filled my whole room, yes, soap, for me, apparently works as air freshener as well! :D Definitely recommend this one!

Viena lieta, kas man ļoti patīk, lietojot šīs ziepes, ir tas, ka manas rokas patīkami smaržo vēl ilgi pēc tam, kad esmu tās nomazgājusi! Ziepju smarža ir ļoti līdzīga ķermeņa pieniņa smaržai ( jā, zinu, zinu, tas ir tikai loģiski, ņemot vērā to, ka abi produkti ir no vienas līnijas :D ), bet tai cauri vijās nedaudz vairāk citrusa notis ( neroli ir iegūts no rūgtā apelsīna ziedlapiņām). Un tā kā man šī ziepju smarža ļoti patika, es tās noliku savā istabā uz galda un vairākas dienas baudīju neuzkrītošo orhideju un neroli smaržu! Ziepes izrādās var būt arī lielisks gaisa atsvaidzinātājs!

Cleansing foam
I was very eager to try out this cleansing foam as I am very picky when it comes to cleansing products! Usually I use Biotherm's micellar water to take off my makeup and use face gel or foam just to cleanse my skin a bit more. Therefore, I was very eager to find out how well this product will take off my makeup since it was stated on the packaging! The product did the job really well- my skin was left very clean, with no trace of makeup and, honestly, it felt a little smoother as well! It definitely didn't leave my skin feeling dry which is am important factor for me since a lot of face cleansing products I have tried have left my skin feeling dry and a bit uneven! The scent of this product is very fresh and neutral which I think would appeal to a lot of people, for me personally, it is a bit too neutral, since apparently I am a scent maniac! :D

Es biju ļoti ieinteresēta izmēģināt šīs attīrošās putas, jo esmu diezgan izvēlīga, kad izvēlos seju attīrošos produktus! Parasti sejas kosmētiku es noņemu ar Biotherm micelāro ūdeni un pēc tam kārtīgi attīru seju ar sejas želeju vai putām! Tāpēc biju ieinteresēta redzēt, kā šīs attīrošās putas noņems manu sejas kosmētiku! Manuprāt, produkts diezgan labi sevi attaisnoja - mana sejas āda bija tīra, bez jebkādām kosmētikas pazīmēm! Ļoti bieži šāda veida sejas attīrīšanas līdzekļi sausina manu sejas ādu, bet biju priecīga uzzinot, ka šis produkts drīzāk lika manai sejas ādai justies mīkstākai un pat gludākai! Smarža šīm putiņām ir svaiga un salīdzinoši neitrāla, pieļauju, ka daudziem tas varētu patikt, bet, man, ja godīgi, produkta smarža likās pat pārāk neitrāla! Haha, es laikam esmu kaut kāds smaržu frīks! :D
lavender-hand-cream-shea-butter
Dry skin hand cream
This item was already included in the last beauty box that I reviewed and I was quite happy about the fact that it was in this box as well, since I have already used up the last hand cream 10ml packaging! I will not get into many more details, as I have already reviewed this product right here. All I will say is that the quality of hand cream is really good and I love it's travel friendly packaging!

Šo produktu jau apskatīju pēdējā L'Occitane pārsteiguma kastes atsauksmes rakstā un es biju ļoti priecīga, kad atklāju, ka šis krēms ir iekļauts arī šoreiz, jo iepriekšējo iepakojumu biju jau izlietojusi! Es neieslīgšu dziļākās detaļās par šo produktu, jo esmu par to jau uzrakstījusi atsauksmi šeit, bet varu piebilst tikai - tā kvalitāte un ceļojumiem draudzīgais izmērs mani uzrunāja!
loccitane-samples
Samples
Besides the four products that I already mentioned above, I received 5 samples! I received Revitalizing fresh shampoo sample, Repairing mask sample, Hydra Vital cream sample, Almond milk concentrate for body sample and BB cream in Light sample! I have not tried all of them, but I really liked the repairing mask and the revitalizing shampoo ( I am kind of obsessed with hair products right now)! I was also intrigued by the BB cream and I might go to L'Occitane store and check it out a bit more!

Neskaitot četrus skaistumkopšanas produktus, šajā kastītē bija arī pieci produktu paraudziņi! Tie bija dažādi, sākot no Aromachology matu maskas, atdzīvinoša šampūna matiem, mandeļu pieniņa koncetrāta ķermenim, mitrinoša krēma un beidzot ar BB krēmu! Es vēl neesmu paguvusi izmēģināt visus paraudziņus, bet varu pateikt, ka man patika gan matu maska, gan arī šampūns ( pēdējā laikā ļoti lielu uzmanību esmu piešķīrusi tieši matu kopšanas produktiem), kā arī mani ieintriģēja BB krēms, iespējams, apmeklēšu L'Occitane veikalu un apskatīšu šo produktu klātienē!
loccitane-beauty-box-review
Overall, I am very happy with this box and it exceed my expectations! I was quite impressed with the first beauty box that I reviewed from L'Occitane, but this box somehow even topped it! Probably because of the item that is a "must have" from this box- The Neroli & Orchid Body milk! 
Have you ever tried L'Occitane Surprise boxes? Do you like L'Occitane products?

Kopumā esmu ļoti apmierināta ar šo pārsteiguma kastīti. Savā īpašumā to Tu vari iegūt vēl tikai 2 dienas! Tā būs pieejama internetveikalā vai veikalā uz vietas ( t/c Spice) līdz 1. maijam! Jau pirmajā reizē, kad rakstīju atsauksmi par pirmo L'Occitane pārsteiguma kastīti, es biju patīkami iepriecināta, bet šoreiz šis piedāvājums mani pārsteidza vēl vairāk, ļoti iespējams tāpēc, ka "must have" produkts - Neroli un orhideju ķermeņa pieniņš ir lielisks
Vai Tu esi kādreiz mēģinājusi L'Occitane pārsteiguma kastītes? Vai tev patīk L'Occitane produkti?

~With love~

  4. Vienmēr patikuši L'Occitane roku krēmi, īpaši to iepakojums. Šķiet, ka viss ir ar tādu glanci, kas noteikti piesaista manu uzmanību. Nemelošu, ja teikšu, ka šāda kastīte būtu jauka dāvana savai mīļotājai, vai ne?

  13. I don't think these boxes are available worldwide, I've never seen them in Czech Republic or other places I've stayed at - what a pity, I would love to get one for sure!
