I've never been to L'occitane before, much less made a purchase there. I had a coupon for a free 30ml hand cream so I was really excited to try it out. The one they were giving was their best selling Cream Mains Hand Cream. I also picked up their Ultra Rich Face Soap w/ Shea Butter.
The lotion has a nice light scent to it and it feels really creamy and moisturizing. Even after I washed my hands they still felt nice and smooth. This hand cream retails for $10.

The box for the soap says: Formulated w/ a soft vegetable cleansing base, this ultra rich soap is perfect for daily face cleansing. Rich in shea butter (8%), it gently cleanses the skin w/out drying and helps to respect the hydrolipidic film. It's creamy foam leaves skin feeling comfortable, soft and fresh.
The soap is 3.5oz and is quite fragrant. Which I'm not a big fan of. I prefer my facial products to have little to no smell b/c my skin can be sensitive at times. I noticed that the fragrance didn't linger on my face for long though, maybe about 5 minutes. According to the sales lady, she says that this soap would be perfect for sensitive skin. I used it last night and didn't have any reaction to it. It lathered up nicely and my skin felt nice afterwards, not too dry or tight like how my Neutrogena cleanser leaves my skin feeling sometimes. At the same time I feel like this $10 cleanser doesn't necessarily out perform anything I can find for $5. I guess time will tell how this works for me, but so far I like it.
