L’Occitane - new Almond Collection products
I’m one very happy blogger, for L’Occitane have announced new additions and formulas to their Almond range – one of the most exquisite fragrances around in my view and the Milk Concentrate is quite possibly my favourite body cream of all time! (see review). The new Almond products are Tonic Body Oil (£35 for 100ml), Smooth Hands (£14 for 75ml) and Lighter Legs (£20 for 75ml). New formulas have meanwhile been announced for Shaping Delight (£36 for 200ml), Milk Concentrate (£38 for 200ml) and Supple Skin Oil (£35 for £100lm). The new collection will be on counter in May.

While we’re on the subject of gorgeous aromas, Crabtree & Evelyn have just launched new body products. The Caribbean Island Wild Flowers Bath and Body Collection replaces another of my favoured fragrances, India Hicks Island Living (I sincerely hope this new line up smells as good - haven't tried it yet!). The new fragrance collection contains tropical citrus notes including spider lily, bergamot, mandarin, jasmine and plum. Available now, it includes Eau de Toilette (£19 for 30ml and £39 for 100ml), Body Wash (£18 for 300ml), Body Lotion (£22 for 300ml), Body Cream (£30 for 200g), Body Polish (£20 for 175g), Hand Wash (£16 for 300ml), and Ultra-moisturising Hand Therapy (£22 for 300ml). Details on the range here.

Other key ingredients include verbena, yeast, rye and mallow. Available nationwide from 2nd May, priced at £275. More from Guerlain here.
Guerlain – Super Aqua skincare
The one facial skincare entry this week also comes from the aforementioned French brand. Guerlain have expanded their Super Aqua range with four new additions.
