L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream Review & Swatch-

Hi lovely ladies!

As you all know my love for everything L’Occitane, even I am surprised I did not try out their very cult shea butter ultra rich body cream before! I received a smaller size in a set I got a few months back & had to get the biggest size to save my parched winter skin 🙂

What L’Occitane Says-

Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream is a comprehensive body care for dry to very dry skin. Containing an exceptional concentration of Shea butter (25%), it helps deliver intense nourishment to the skin, protecting it from dryness and strengthening its hydrolipidic barrier. Enriched with apricot oil and natural extracts (linseed, marshmallow, sweet almond and honey) it provides lasting hydration – for up to 72 hours – and helps to soften and comfort the skin without leaving a greasy film.

My take on the L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream-

The body cream comes in a sturdy blue & white accented tub packaging in various sizes with a screw-on matte silver lid. It is very easy to use, store & carry since I am right now guilty of possessing all 3 sizes *facepalm* 😛

The cream is offwhite in color and very rich & thick in texture– takes some working to massage on to dry skin but it sinks in quite easily & completely. After getting absorbed, skin immediately looks & feels soft & supple without any heavy/greasy feel <3

The Ultra Shea Body Cream is god sent for those of us with very dry skin especially in winters & this one is no exception *_* Soothing, hydrating yet without any sticky feel <3 This is one of the only creams which never needs reapplication through the day & that’s saying something! With any other lotion, I usually need to reapply every 4-5 hours.

The entire shea range from L’Occitane has the same very subtle, soft, warm fragrance which lingers for a bit before fading away.

5> Great list of ingredients.

Cons of the L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream:

My Rating: 5/5!

Do I recommend the L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream?

L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream is one of the very few body creams I buy more for functional purposes rather than shallow interests like new smells or limited edition variants ^_^ I buy it for my parched skin in winters because it is one of the very few things which keeps me from having to reapply every few hours.
