L'Occitane Shea Butter Collection

One of my favourite brands - L'Occitane have taken one of their most iconic ingredients and have released a brand new range of products which are literally just incredible. If you have never tried anything from L'Occitane before, then I urge to you give this range a try, it is so so good.

Within the Shea Butter range there is the brand new Ultra-Light Body Cream and Shea Shower Oil and not wanting a few products to be feeling left out, both the Rich Lotion and Shea Fabulous Oil have been given a bit of a makeover and now have a brand new look.

Starting with the Ultra Light Body Cream which has an incredible light, bouncy texture to it and it is described by L'Occitane as follows:

Shea Ultra Light Body Cream combines the nourishing properties of a balm with the lightness of a mousse to protect and moisturised skin for up to 24 hours. Its light and airy formula, made with 5% shea butter, gently melts into the skin leaving it supple and comfortable.

I adore the texture of this cream, as soon as it comes into contact with my skin, it has disappeared and behind I am left with what can only be described as an incredible scent and amazingly soft to the touch skin.

I am not usually someone who can be bothered with a body cream, it is a faff, but I am part way through the tub of this one, so it has definitely ticked a box.  Retailing at £32 for 200ml, I am debating stocking up!

For me, L'Occitane shower oils are the best I have tried.  I adore the entire Almond range and have repurchased the shower oil from that range several times over.  The introduction to the Shea Shower Oil and I am not wanting to get out of the shower.  Described as:
Developed with 10% of lipid rich Shea oil, this shower oil gently cleanses the body. Its rich texture leaves a nourishing, protective film, which helps soften even dry skins. It contributes to soothe feelings of tightness, for skin that seems more supple and comfortable. Its gentle fragrance delicately perfumes the skin.
Now as it is an oil it acts like an oily, so you need to take care in the shower. That said, I adore the scent and I adore the feeling on my skin once I leave the shower.

After using my skin is so sweet-scented and smooth to the touch. I have also used it in the bath for an extra treat and even dry skin on my shins, knees and elbows seems to have been almost eradicated using this. Priced at just £19 for 250ml I have bought a backup.

The Rich Lotion with its brand new look is as the name suggests - a rich lotion. Described as being:
Rich in shea butter (15%) and calendula, this body lotion nourishes and instantly brings comfort to dry skin. It leaves the skin moisturised for up to 48 hours after application. Its fluid formula helps to soothe feelings of skin tightness, offering day after day protection against skin dryness.
For me, this is a treat in a bottle and something to be used when your skin needs some TLC, for a pamper session or just because.

Luxurious and thick textured you literally need just one or two pumps to cover your arms or legs and when it comes into contact with the skin, it melts and disappears much quicker than I had expected. After using there is no trace it was ever on the skin, but the soft Shea Butter scent does remain. Priced at £23 for 250ml.


The final item in this incredible foursome is the Shea Fabulous Oil and as the name suggests it is both fabulous and an oil. Described as being:
Enriched with lipid-replenishing shea oil (5%), Shea Fabulous Oil is the ideal formula to nourish, soften and protect the skin from dryness. It helps to restore the skin’s hydrolipidic film. With its rich, silky texture and satin-soft finish, it is quickly absorbed and leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth, with no greasy after feel. The skin is delicately scented with the iconic Shea fragrance.
What I love about this oil is that it comes in a glass bottle with a spritz, so you don't have to pour it into your hands and then transfer it to your skin, only to find half of it is on the carpet and the other half dribbling everywhere.

Just spritz onto the skin where you want it the most and then massage into the skin.  As it is an oil, I was surprised to find there is no greasiness left on the skin, it absorbs pretty quickly and leaves no trace behind.  I have used this oil on my body, legs, hands, arms and even on my feet and it is just delightful.  Priced at £26 for 100ml it is stunning.



It is worth noting that L'Occitane use organic Shea Butter within their products and since the 1980's they have worked with women in Burkina Faso to ensure they have the highest quality product (read more about this here). Shea Butter works to replenish, nourish and heal the skin by locking in nutrition and if like me you have dry patches of skin, the use of Shea Butter works incredibly well.



For me, this is another amazing range from L'Occitane and I would love to know if you are as big a fan as I am of the brand?

  5. I'm not a fan of the brand because of their animal testing (despite the website saying otherwise, they make products in China where animal testing is mandatory) however, I do enjoy other products with shea butter for the moisturising and luxurious feel.

  14. One of the reasons why neither of us use oils like this is the greasiness. If these aren't greasy, then they're probably worth a try!
