L’OCCITANE Shea Butter products have to be among the most iconic scents in the industry. In celebration of the twentieth anniversary of their best selling hand cream, the brand has just launched the new limited edition Whipped Shea Butter body collection. While the soft scent of shea is reminiscent of baby powder with a hint of whipped cream, it is now carried in weightless textures and formulas to cleanse and hydrate. With outdoor temperatures dropping, these bath and body treats make for really delectable additions to my current routine.
The crisp yet comforting scent of Whipped Shea Butter Shower Foam is motivating for those who dread a morning shower. With its liquid to foam delivery system, the soft cleanser takes no effort to apply. Within seconds and only a few pumps in, skin becomes clean, soft and delicately scented. And while you should be wearing nothing while enjoying it, your skin won’t feel stripped since this deeply hydrating foam is actually enriched with pure Shea Butter. ($20 for 5.2 oz.)
Debuting another new texture this season, Whipped Shea Butter Body Cream is a hybrid of a mousse and a butter. Fluffed to perfection, this airy marshmallow-like body moisturizer applies and absorbs equally smoothly. Infused with 10% pure Shea Butter, this treatment product is an all around solution for dry skin. Ultra hydrating, this body cream sinks into the skin immediately, so whether you’re putting on daytime clothes or slipping into your PJs for the night, no wait time is necessary. The tin is as weightless as the product itself,so it makes a fabulous travel companion. ($24 for 2.46 oz.)
L’OCCITANE Hand Cream needs no introduction. Sold every 3 seconds all over the world, it is hard to believe the luxurious formula is 20 years old! With a new twist, the Whipped Shea Butter Hand Cream comes in a travel size tube only and is formulated with 25% of the nourishing ingredient (5% more than the original). The playful texture is paired with a star-shaped opening of the tube giving it the appearance of a delicious dessert topper as it comes out. Light and soft, it is ideal to use anytime, even during night time reading. Because it is completely non-greasy, you can read on your iPad, Kindle, or old school style. ($12 for 1 oz.)
In other great news, L’OCCITANE is also offering a limited edition bar of Apricot Solidarity Soap this month. In observance of World Sight Day (October 8th), all month long, 100% of the profits from the sale of this delightful soap will benefit NGO working on eye care projects in the developing countries. Did you know there are 285 million visually impaired people in the world? Amazingly, 80% of blindness cases can be avoided with proper care. ($3 for 1.7 oz. bar)
