I really have to remind myself to stop purchasing body creams, especially those that state upfront that they’re ultra rich. But I just never seem to learn. Even with an almost brand new container of Oliver Body Butter from The Body Shop left on my shelf, I ventured to purchase a 200ml jar of L’Occitane Ultra Rich Body Cream at S$69. Why?
Ultra rich body cream are just not for me. Despite being a customer favorite, I just don’t take to this much acclaimed ultimate moisturizing comfort with 25% concentration of Shea Butter too well. There’s nothing wrong with the product really. It’s simply too rich for my liking that’s all. I should have gotten the body lotion but I must have been really weak-minded at that point of purchase.
A pampering, whipped cream enriched with linseed, mallow, sweet almond and honey extracts, apricot oil and vitamin E. Fast-absorbing; non-greasy texture. Enchants with a light fragrance of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences.
If you’ve dry skin badly in need of moisturising, this is the cream for you. It’s really rich and while not greasy, it’ll leave a heavy film of protection on your skin. Which explains why I’m not keen on it. At the moment, I use it on the driest part of my body, such as my elbows. But the good thing is that this can also double up as a hand cream as well so it’s not a total loss for me.
L’Occitane Ultra Rich Body Cream is also available at StrawberryNET.com, and at a cheaper price than what I’ve obtained at the local store.
