Father’s Day is just a month away, June 21st 2015, and Derek has been busy putting the new L’Occitane Cedrat Collection to the test. This new fresh and extremely masculine fragrance and skincare range is perfect for any special guy on your list. Thanks to its sparkling cedrat pulp extracts filled with energizing properties, the multi-benefit Cedrat skincare range answers all his daily needs for young men’s skin, as it helps to hydrate, mattify and energize. The fragrance combines notes of fresh citrus fruit with woody undertones evoking the cedar tree.
If you’re looking for a fresh delicate, citrus fragrance, along with skincare products that are tailored to meet the unique demands of the man in your life, look no further than the new L’Occitane Cedrat Collection. It features top notes of bergamot and cedrat, heart notes of nutmeg and blue ginger, followed by base notes of cedar and cashmeran.
Derek’s first impression of this fresh new scent was that it was immediately green, citrusy, joyful, and sparkling. It quickly became more masculine thanks to the bitterness of the woody rind. It has a distinctive elegance to it, which blends beautifully with that of the bergamot and aromatic spices and finishes with a slightly smoky, yet sophisticated woody base.
Fresh and light, but never shallow, chic and refined, but never formal, this new collection has a little something for everyone. It features an eau de cedrat, shower gel, deodorant stick and soap to keep him lightly fragranced throughout the day, along with a face gel, shaving gel, after shave and cleanser for all his skincare needs coming this June.
L’Occitane Cedrat Global Face Gel is a triple action cream that hydrates, mattifies and energizes the skin. It’s enriched with vegetable-based glycerin that provides extremely hydration and protects the skin without leaving a nasty greasy film or oily residue. Its lightweight, gel-like texture applies evenly and absorbs into the skin instantly. It gives added moisture, but also helps to refine the skin’s texture and neutralize excess sebum throughout the day so your skin is never left shiny. It helps to revitalize the skin and visibly reduce the signs of fatigue.
Derek’s obsessed with its light and melting texture that quickly absorbs into the skin, so he can continue on with his day. We all know guys hate products that take too long to work or soak into the skin. They want that lightweight feeling, but with immediate results. It keeps his skin matte all day, never looking shiny or oily. It provides a clear, fresh and invigorating start to his day. It retails for $42 for 50ml.
L’Occitane Cedrat Shower Gel is a two in one cleanser for both the body and hair. Its fresh and masculine scent, combined with sparkling notes and slightly woody fragrance, instantly awakens your senses in the morning. It’s enriched with organic Corsican cedrat extract that helps to energize and invigorate the skin and brings a slight suppleness and shine to the hair.
As much as us ladies hate 2-in-1 products, the men love it. I can’t even tell you how many times Derek’s told me he’s ran out of body wash in the shower and just used his shampoo as a cleanser, or vice versa, used his body wash as a shampoo. Now thanks to the new L’Occitane Cedrat Shower Gel, he doesn’t have the fear of running out of one or the other. When used as a body wash, it comes to a decent lather, washing away dirt and grime from the day and rinses clean away. Same goes for using it as a shampoo, it does a wonderful job at removing product buildup without leaving his hair feeling greasy, oily or weighted down. An excellent double duty product that’s sure to be a great addition to any manly shower routine. It retails for $22 for 250ml.
