L'Occitane New Bonne Mere Shower Gels & Liquid Soap

Beginning this month  L'Occitane expands it's Bonne Mere line in  celebration of the brand's Provencal heritage.

In addition to the Marseille Cube Soap , there are new stackable shower gels and a Marseille Liquid Soap.

The Shower Gels ( $ 14) come in 5 scents -Peach, Honey, Lemon, Rosemary & Olive . I have the peach and it's delicious.  It's a soft peach , definitely peach but not heavy, sugary peach. The gel is lightly moisturizing and comes in a  cube with a big indent in the bottom- that's for stacking with other scents if you want.

The Marseille Liquid Soap  ($20 ) is a little spot of luxury for the bath. This perfume free soap can be used for body as well as a hand soap.  I love high end hand soaps. They just glam things up a  bit and the retro look on the Marseille label  has a French apothecary feel.

A duo of the soaps or mixed with another product is a great gifting idea. If you need hostess gifts ,  have birthdays or want to start holiday shopping , hand/liquid soaps like this manage to cross a tricky line- useful and practical but  luxe  at the same time.
