L'Occitane Hand Cream Facebook Giveaway

For "liking" their Facebook page and registering, L'Occitane en Provence Canada was kind enough to giveaway a FREE 30ml Shea Butter Hand Cream (a value of $12), to be picked up at one of their 23 Canadian boutiques.

Originally, the giveaway was only for a free 10ml L'Occitane en Provence hand cream (a value of $6). After you "like" them on Facebook, you register online with your mailing address and email address so that they can send you a voucher/coupon via email. If they reach their goal of having 6000 "likes" on their Facebook page, they would upgrade the size of the L'Occitane en Provence hand cream that everyone receives from the 10ml  to the 30ml size. Luckily, everyone's getting the upgraded hand cream size because they have SO surpassed their goal of 6000 likes. As of right now, it's at 20,000+!

I had received the voucher/coupon from them in my email early this week and only had time today to go pick up my hand cream. Unfortunately, there are not too many locations around to make it super convenient for pick up, but beggars can't be choosers. With the Free Shea Butter Hand Cream voucher/coupon, there was also a 15% off coupon with the email, offering you 15% off your purchase at the time you pick up the cream at the boutique. To redeem the hand cream, you either need a print out copy of the email or show the email screen on your smartphone to a L'Occitane associate. After doing either one of the options, they hand you a quick form to fill out with your information, where once completed they give you your hand cream.

I ended up going to the Bloor St. location in Toronto to do the pick up. Staff there was kind and knowledgeable. They were quite busy and i noticed at least half the people there were picking up this hand cream as well, both males and females (so gentlemen, this is NOT just a girl thing). The staff did not give you a hard time about redeeming for your hand cream. They did encourage/remind you that there was 15% off, but it wasn't aggressive where it made you feel like you were forced to buy something. It was more like they just genuinely wanted to give you an opportunity to save more. Although this experience could vary from store to store or different service reps of course. Overall, i'm really happy with this Facebook giveaway. L'Occitane was able to reach and surpass their goal while we get to enjoy the benefits of one of their gorgeous products! 



You can still have the opportunity to "like" L'Occitane en Provence Canada on Facebook and receive a Free Shea Butter Hand Cream. Request yours now through February 20th on Facebook.

*Canadian residents only. One per household. One per fan. Vouchers will be sent in late January. (No purchase necessary) 
The hand cream offer and 15% off discount are valid only until March 6, 2012 in Canadian boutiques. 15% off discount only applies to full priced merchandise and must be used at the time of hand cream redemption.
