Pop-up shops are certainly de-rigueur and this one is top of the BITB teamâ€™s list for a pre-Xmas visit!
You may have seen OCCO natural and luxurious beauty products grace the pages of glossy magazines in recent weeks and months and it only launched in September this year! OCCOâ€™s certainly causing a stir in beauty-land.Â
Now the luxurious natural spa brand is available at the new pop-up boutique in The Royal Exchange, Londonâ€™s commerce hub. Situated in-between HermÃ¨s and Paul A Young Fine Chocolates, it is the perfect one-stop shop for glorious Christmas gifts, bathroom must-haves, indulgent home spa treats and scented luxuries for the house.
100% natural fragrances transport you to coastal cliffs, deep forests, vineyards, wild meadows, citrus groves and the sea whilst the potent, enriching and therapeutic formulations balance, relax, rejuvenate, soothe, awaken and energise your senses. There are 65 products currently, for the face, body and home, made with the finest quality ingredients ranging from 96% to 100% natural. With so much to choose from, it could be an expensive trip!
