Review: L’Occitane Bonne Mère Collection


I absolutely adore the world famous French skincare brand L’Occitane En Provence. I used their incredibly nourishing Shea butter on my bump while pregnant with my daughter Ava, so I was surprised to find out that they have a collection specially crafted for the whole family.

The Bonne Mère collection offers families with small children (3+) hypoallergenic and PH neutral formulas that are made without parabens or phenoxyethanol. Each bottle is also made using environment-friendly vegetal plastic bottles.

Being a lover of chemical-free/eco-friendly personal care products I was excited to try their products out on my family.

Douceur de Douche – Gentle Body Wash

I love body wash and was genuinely impressed with this gently body wash. I hate when creamy washes are thick and goopy, but this wash was the complete opposite. Enriched with Honey the wash has a light texture to it and melts onto the skin. The smell of honey is mild and leaves a lightly scented smell on the skin.

The cream costs #34.00 for the largest sized bottle (20.2 fl.oz). This is a good price because you don’t need a lot the wash to cleanse your skin. It should last for six months if used regularly.

Creme Doucer – Gentle Cream

This cream is also enriched with honey and is very comparable to the Gentle Wash in terms of smell and texture. The cream is light and goes on smoothly. The product is non-greasy and absorbs into the skin much faster than a lot of creams.  I also hate when the scent of a cream rubs off on things I touch, so I was happy  to find out that this product does not do that.

The cream costs $22.00 (2.5fl.oz). It can go on every part of the body, so the price is reasonable.

VERDICT: The smell of these products are divine, but not overpowering. Both are creamy, yet light. If you have sensitive skin then the L’Occitane Bonne Mère Collection is a must try.

    I don’t like the thick and goopy either. Gentle sounds like it was made just for my skin. So it has honey in it… Honey is very healing.

  2. Growing Up Madison says

    Sounds like a really great product. Will look into them for me. I love trying new products and the price doesn’t seem too bad either. Thanks for the review.

  3. Melanie says

    These sound gentle! I love trying some new lotions but a lot are heavily scented these look like they are right up my alley :)

  4. Corinne says

    My sister-in-law introduced me to L’Occitane a few years ago. I love it. Works better than anything else. Definitely worth the price.

  5. Anita Breeze says

    I love Loccitane. Loccitane Canada used to be a customer of mine and every Christmas I got a swag bag from them. I miss those days!

  6. Grandma Bonnie says

    Sounds like my granddaughters might be able to use this. They have very sensitive skin. Hypoallergenic and PH neutral would make it great for them to use.

  7. Courtney Pies says

    This definitely sounds like something I can use! I do not have sensitive skin, but I find that products for sensitive skin make my skin feel smoother.

  8. Marika says

    I love the L’Occitane products, I bought my mom for last Christmas the L’Occitane verberna perfume, it’s her favorite.

  9. Pam says

    I have sensitive skin so I think this would be good for me. My daughter has eczema so I bet it would help her skin too.

    The packaging is so attractive! Chemical free products are so important for little ones. I’m glad to hear of a product like this.

  11. Rosey says

    I like a light texture as opposed to a goopy one (your description is perfect) too. And scent…scent is important.

    Thank you for the review. Hadn’t heard of this until now!

    I have to admit I adore L’occitaine – I haven’t tried these exact products but I will have to look out for them now :) x

  14. Healy Harpster says

    I want to try the gentle cream! I am very concern about the smell, glad to know that there products doesn’t have the strong smell.
