L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote Review 2018

If you’ve frequented Shangri-La Hotels/Shangri-La Plaza Mall or you’re a fan of bath products, I’m pretty sure that you have an idea of what L’Occitane is. My recent trip to Shangri-La Hotel in The Fort has introduced me to L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote collection from L’Occitane’s Collection de Grasse line and as a sane person, I took the free bath products home.

The L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote collection is easily distinguishable from the rest of L’Occitane’s products because of its packaging.

Utilitarian is what I can best describe the packaging of the new Collection de Grasse line which is honestly boring to me.



I prefer L’Occitane’s other products in terms of packaging because they deliver an organic & luxurious feel.

In the past years, Shangri-La Hotel in Makati has stopped showcasing L’Occitane products on their arsenal of freebies in the bathroom and I am so glad that Shangri-La Hotel in The Fort hasn’t imposed that nonsense yet.

Let’s begin with the review of the products, shall we?

L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote Review 2018

I only have the Shower Gel, Shampoo, and Conditioner combo from the L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote collection because those are the only things free from Shangri-La Hotel, The Fort.

Let’s start with the first thing that I use whenever I clean myself.

L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote Shampoo

The main factor that I love about the L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote collection is the fragrance.

I’m a huge fan of citrus meets woody scents and the amount of musk doesn’t over-power the fresh feel that I’m looking for in bath products.

Bergamot is the strongest note and you’ll barely be able to smell the jasmine which is positive for me.

I’m not a fan of floral scents when it comes to bath products.

L’Occitane products are made in France so my expectations were definitely met in terms of fragrance.

The shampoo is so-so and there were no astounding benefits on my hair but it’s truly a joy to smell while in the shower.

Description from the Website:

“This shampoo provides shine, softness and delicately perfumes hair with a fresh and floral fragrance.”

I like how honest they are when they wrote “delicately”.

The shampoo when used alone, doesn’t perfume the hair for a long time.

It didn’t provide softness or shine so scratch those thoughts out.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Laureth-2, Peg-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Coco-Glucoside, Sodium Benzoate, Glyceril Oleate, Ethylexyl Salicylate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Sodium Chloride, Sodium Acetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Tocopherol, Hydrogenated Palm Glycerides Citrate, Lecithin, Ascorbyl Palmitate, Jasminum Sambac (Jasmine) Flower Extract, Parfum/Fragrance, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, Citronellol, CI 19140/Yellow 5, CI 14700/Red 4, CI 17200/Red 33, CI 42090/Blue 1

Don’t be scared of the ingredients, they’re mostly natural.

Let’s continue this L’Occitane Collection de Grasse review with my favorite item which is the conditioner.

This almost exactly smells the same with the shampoo but you’ll be able to sense more of the Jasmin.

The consistency is like of any other conditioners in the market but the fragrance is in a league of its own.

This made my hair smell immaculate for literally 24 hours.

It softened my dry hair a little but there are other conditioners that can do the job better.

Even a less than 10 PHP sachet of Cream Silk can knock this product out when it comes to making hair shiny and soft all day.

I have dry bleached hair so I know what I’m talking about in terms of hair conditioners.

Description from the Website:

“This conditioner softens and helps detangle hair. Its melting texture provides suppleness and radiance.”

The claim is genuine but the amount of “suppleness and radiance” provided is mediocre at best.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water, Dimethicone, Distearoylethyl, Dimonium Chloride, Jasminum Sambac (Jasmine) Flower Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cethyl Alcohol, Cetyl Esters, Tocopherol, Citric Acid, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceril Stearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Polyquaternium-37, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnimate, Polyquaternium-7, Sodium Benzoate, Panthenol, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Butylmethoxydibenzolymethane, Pentasodium Pentetate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Parfum/Fragrance, Limonene, Linalool, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, Citronellol, CI 19140/Yellow 5, CI 14700/Red 4

To think that this conditioner is my most favorite in this L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote collection says a lot about how I really didn’t like this line.

Let’s end this with something that’s totally worthless.

L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote Shower Gel

I have zero clue on why this shower gel was created.

Description from the Website:

“This shower gel gently cleanses the skin leaving it delicately fragranced with a sensual and luminous scent, born of the union of jasmine & bergamot.”

I’m starting to realize why they keep on using the word “delicately”.

This product doesn’t lather well and the scent it gives will be gone right after you rinse your body.

L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote should take notes from Victoria’s Secret when making shower gels with long-lasting scents.

My Kojic Acid soaps’ scent lingers more than this joke of a body wash.

Ingredients: Aqua/Water, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Coco-Glucoside, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Parfum/Fragrance, Jasminum Sambac (Jasmine) Flower Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia (Bergamot) Fruit Oil, Laureth-2, Peg-120 Methyl Glucose Dioleate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnimate, Butyl Methoxydibenzoylmethane, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Disodium Edta, Sodium Benzoate, Tocopherol, Linalool, Limonene, Citronellol, Geraniol, Hydroxycitronellal, CI 19140/Yellow 5, CI 14700/Red 4

Verdict

I don’t like the L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote collection but Collection de Grasse as a whole is very interesting to me.

Purchasing it is out of the question but I’ll definitely finish it because it’s free.

It’s good to have while traveling but I can’t find any WOW factor from the L’Occitane Jasmin and Bergamote products.

Just stick with your go-to bath products.

I won’t be writing 5 times a week anymore because I’ll use the other 2 days for promotion.

I’ll still deliver quality reviews regularly but they’ll mostly be published every Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.

Currently, I have so much products to share with you guys so don’t hesitate to join the forums for you to be able to get instant notifications when I post a blog entry.

Thanks for your time and I hope you enjoyed this review.

PS: I don’t hate L’Occitane. I love their Eco-Friendly collection.
