L'Occitane Verbena Body Lotion Review

My sister is one who never gets tired sending me gifts and the L'Occitane products I have currently are all from her. The body lotion is one thing I am using regularly these days and thought it is time to review it. Next I would be reviewing their shampoo and conditioner and might be the soap after that.

The review was requested by Ankita :)


The L'Occitane Verbena body lotion is not as liquid as a lotion but more like a cream. When I first took the cream out I thought it is really thick but no, it is neither too thick nor too liquid like a lotion. As I spread it on my body it gets absorbed in a jiffy. The skin feels and looks moisturized. The effect lasts until I have my shower again. It smells like fresh tea leaves as I open the lid. I am reviewing the sample bottle that has 50 ml of the product.

  • Smells fresh and good.
  • Lotion feels light on skin.
  • Moisturizes the skin well.
  • Lotion gets absorbed easily.
  • Good and spill-free packaging.
  • The effect stays for an entire day.

  • The lotion does not help people with dry skin and I also doubt how good it will be in winters.


The price of L'Occitane Verbena Body Lotion is Rs.1595 for 250 ml.


This is a good body lotion, especially if you have oily-combination skin then you would love it. My skin is basically dry and it helps me in this summer. Might be I will have to look out for a better moisturizer for winters.

  1. sweet sis you've got. nice post :)

  2. I have used verbana body wash in the summers and absolutely loved it.its one of my fav body washes of all time now!!!

    thanks for reviewing the body lotion..i guess its more of a leafy smell and i better only stick to using the body wash in summers!!

    1. I am yet to try their body wash, will try when I get a chance :)

  3. sounds nice Aarthi :)

    1. Ya Bhumika, good for summers.

  4. What a wonderful sister you have.... Hope i can be a Sis like that...... Both my Sister in laws are abroad, one in London and one in States and i love getting sweet gifts like these..... :)

    1. Ya she is always so sweet :) That is so nice of your sils :)

  5. Nice review :) And u ve got such a sweet sis! Lucky you!

  6. That's a nice review dear :) is there an ingredient list on the body? I'd love to know if it contains parabens or not.. I've been looking out for a body moisturizer without parabens for long..
    Check out my new blog post :)

    1. I guess it has parabens. Let me check once.

  7. You have got a very sweet sister and great that she sends you beauty products, a woman's new best friend bearing in mind that diamonds have become so expensive these days. LOL! I also believe in applying a lot of moisturiser soon after I get out of my bath. My skin is still damp and the moisturiser absorbs well. Off late I have been applying Parachute Advansed body lotion summer fresh which has mint and coconut milk in it. I find it great for the summer months.
