Today's guest post is from Meredith of et tu and you, a good friend, and awesome blogger who is always on top of the latest beauty products, and social happenings in Toronto. If you have yet to check out Meredith's blog, be sure to do so here. **

In addition to these summer 'treats', L'Occitane is quite generous with samples. In fact, they ask what you would like to try!!!! I requested hair products, as I have never tried any from L'Occitane. I received a shampoo and conditioner as well as some sunscreen.
I urge you to try these products before they disappear! The Sorbet Verbena smells fresh and chic. It's not overpowering or too weak, it's so fresh! There IS a cooling sensation with the lip gloss and the body ice gel which is great while I am making my way through the throngs of people trudging their way to the train station. These products leave my skin moisturized, cool, and lightly scented!
What do you use to beat the heat and stay sweet-smelling in the summer?
