The day I laid eyes on the L’Occitane x Rifle Paper Co. collection, I felt my stoic bones turn to mush as my stiff upper lip quivered to let out an appreciative “Awww….” I had no idea what Rifle Paper Co. was, but I challenge you to not have the same reaction I did!
I’m rarely one to fall for pretty packaging, but this one tugged at the ol’ whimsical heart-strings. There was just something about the flowers and illustrations that appeals, and will appeal to the majority.
Rifle Paper Co. I later learnt, is a stationery company that specialises in whimsical illustrations and designs. There is a lot about their aesthetic that I could see stationery lovers enjoying, and if you’re a stationery lover, I’d love to know if they are a brand that you have kept on your radar 🙂
By way of a limited edition collection, L’Occitane has partnered with Rifle Paper Co. to illustrate some of their most iconic bestsellers incorporating Shea Butter, just as you see here.
On a personal note, I will have to say that the L’Occitane shea butter ranges are the ones I really enjoy using the most for the body. I swear by the Ultra Rich Body Cream, which I use nightly, and if I were to pick a hand cream, I’d always go for the shea butter one. The scented ones to me, are a little more mediocre.
The Rifle Paper Co. designs will adorn the packaging of the Shea Hand Cream in both Classic Shea in all sizes (RM128/150ml, RM92/75ml and RM45/30ml) and Classic Rose in the 30ml tube (RM45). It will also adorn their Shea Extra Gentle Soaps (RM29/100g).
But the most eye-catching of them all is this Shea Butter Amour set (RM185) featured here, with a Shea Hand Cream, Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream and Shea Rich Body Scrub in deluxe travel sizes. I hesitate to use the words, but this will be quite a collector’s piece, so catch it before it sells out!
Does this collection with its whimsical prints catch your eye?
The pastel colours and illustrations are quite soothing, and I think, a lovely way to open the year 🙂 Do you like anything from the Shea Butter range?
The L’Occitane x Rifle Paper Co. collection is available at L’Occitane stores and selected items are available online for a limited time, while stocks last.
