A Very L’Occitane Christmas #2 Limited Edition Ultra Rich Body Cream

Part two of my L’Occitane Christmas special sees the other products in the range I shared last week, the Ultra Rich Body Cream’s in Limited Edition packaging. There are three Body Cream’s in the new packaging, Mango Flower, Date Bouquet and Rose Petals.

I’ve been trying out the Rose Petals body cream for about a month now, and it really is lovely. The scent is definitely rosy but it’s not too strong or overpowering, it has a bit of sweetness in there to save it from being overly floral. I really like that the cream is thick too, it makes it a lot easier to apply and makes it feel extra nourishing. All of the Ultra Rich Body Creams contain 25% Shea Butter making them super moisturising and amazing skin protectors. I like to apply a thick layer of the cream onto my arms and feet before bed to do some deep moisturising whilst I sleep, my skin always feels so soft when I wake up. I probably wouldn’t use the body creams in the morning though as they do take a little while to sink in and that would annoy me when getting dressed, but for night time pamper sessions they’re a great choice.
I really like the packaging too, the simple tin is lightweight and looks stylish, I love the colours on the label too. The designs on all of the labels are inspired by West African patterns and materials, the L’Occitane Shea Butter is sourced from there too!
If you’re looking for stocking fillers for Christmas I would definitely recommend these body creams, they’re fab quality and only a few pounds more than a Body Shop Body Butter which are much inferior.
Have you checked out L’Occitane’s Christmas ranges yet?
