New: L’Occitane Whipped Shea Butter

LOccitane-Whipped-Shea-Butter-Shower-Mousse Hand-Cream 

L’Occitane is a brand I always turn to for extra skin nourishment at this time of year and the Shea Butter products are my favourite in the collection. The brand has released a limited edition whipped version of the line to celebrate 25 years of using Shea Butter from women’s co-operatives in Burkina Faso. Think the same nourishing formula and delicious scent as the original, with a light, mousse-like texture - even easier to work into skin and keep dryness at bay. Each product contains 25% Shea Butter, so it really is nourishing (you’d be surprised at the teeny amounts of such ingredients in many beauty products).

The products are fun to use too, a bonus if you tend to be forgetful about applying hand cream, which comes out of the star-shaped nozzle in a crackling, bubbly swirl, like whipped cream from a can. The body wash looks like water in the bottle, but squirts out in a smooth rich foam, with a fresh, clean unisex scent. I have to be very careful what I apply on my body at this time of year as my skin tends to become dry and sensitive, and this has been a pleasure to use in recent weeks. I use a lot of different hand creams and have tested multiple brands over the years, but if my hands are extra dry, L’Occitane Shea Butter is the one I turn to - and the one I always recommend to friends.

Heads up: you can get a free L’Occitane hand cream with this month’s Marie Claire in Shea Butter (original formula), Vanilla Bouquet, Zesty Lime or Delightful Rose.
