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 🙂

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 off–white 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.
Pros of the L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream:
1> Sturdy, convenient travel friendly packaging, comes in 3 different sizes.
2> Ultra rich, creamy texture for even the driest of skin.
3> Hydrates skin beautifully without being greasy.
4> God sent for dry skins & dry winters.
5> Great list of ingredients.
6> Warm, soft shea scent which I love.
7> A little bit goes a long way.
Cons of the L’Occitane Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream:
Swatch 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.
