Nourish and protect your skin with L'Occitane Shea Butter range, now with some exciting new products!

 Since L'Occitane first introduced the Shea Butter collection back in the 1980's it has been one of best loved L'Occitane range and this is valid also for me. Some of my favourite products come from this range:  the Shea Butter Hand Cream, the Ultra Soft Cream and the Ultra Rich Cream so I am very excited to know that L'Occitane is expanding the range with some exciting new products:  the Shea Butter Cleansing Oil and the Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream.

These wonderful new products will go and join the other existing products in the range: Shea Butter Cleansing Milk, Shea Butter Toner , Shea Butter Ultra Rich Cream and Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip balm.

Shea Butter is an ideal beauty ingredient used by women in Sub-Saharan Africa to help nourish and protect their skin and hair. L'Occitane uses Shea Butter from Burkina Faso harvest in a sustainable and fair-trade partnership with the women who produce it.


The young sister of L'Occitane Shea Butter Rich Comforting Cream the new Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream is truly a star product!
Formulated with 5% of Shea Butter compaired to 25% cointained in the rich version this cream is ideal for normal to combination skin.
I really love its light, non-greasy texture, so easy to apply and it absorbs quickly. It gives you a nice matte finish and you can apply make up straight away. For me this is an ideal summer moisturiser if you have dry skin and all around moisturiser if you have normal to combination skin. If you have dry skin I would suggest swapping to the rich version in the winter months. All types of skin now have their comforting cream to choose and I must say I love both! I just choose mine depending on my skin's needs and weather conditions.
This Shea Butter Light Comforting skin leaves my skin soft, supple, radiant and lastingly moisturized up to 48 hrs. It also protects against  external aggressions.


This cleansing oil feels amazing on the face, it is light and easy to massage. Its silky texture removes effieciently impurites and make up even waterproof one in just one easy step.
Enriched with nourishing shea oil (5%) it transforms into an soft emulsion when applied with water. It is not greasy and does a great job in cleaning skin, I am already a huge fan!
Skin is left clean, comfortable looking fresh and radiant!


This ultra rich cream with a 25% concentration of Shea Butter responds to the needs of dry to very dry skin especially in extreme climatic conditions. Its creamy and melting texture penetrates easy bringing comfort and care to dry skin. 


This ultra rich lip balm made with fair trade shea butter (10%) gives comfort, supleness anf softness to your lips, which will be fully restored.


This gentle toner, is alcohol free completely removes make up and also tones skin. It is enriched with softening shea and floral waters ( orange blossom and cornflower). Skin is left soft, clean and fresh.


This cleansing milk has a creamy texture, gently cleanses and removes make up. Enriched with softening shea and soothing licorice extract, it preserves skin's natural hydration and leaves it clean, supple and comfortable.
