At a holiday event back in October (we love celebrating the holidays months in advance, don’t you?), we were introduced to the fabulousness that is L’Occitane Pure Shea Butter. We’d heard of it before, we’d seen it in their stores, but we’d (gasp!) never given it a try. Believe us when we say we’d made a grave error in judgment by not jumping on the shea butter bandwagon a whole lot sooner!
Not only does Pure Shea Butter contain antioxidizing Vitamin E to nourish and moisturize the skin, but it’s formulated with more than 95 percent organic shea butter from Fair Trade women’s cooperatives in Burkina Faso, West Africa. There are three amazing scents that were just introduced for holiday:
Orange Honey (enriched with organic honey)
Apricot Flower (enriched with organic apricot oil)
Vineyard Rose (enriched with organic rosehip oil)
We’ve found that this product glides onto skin smoothly and easily, leaving behind no greasy residue or slick finish. We think it’s perfect for extra-dry areas like elbows and knees — in just days, the rough patches were gone and replaced with smooth, baby-soft skin. L’Occitane has done one better, though — and has created a list of the 50 Ways to Use Pure Shea Butter! From applying to scars to speed up healing time to boosting hair volume by applying to your roots, this guide is packed with intriguing ways to shea.
And the best part yet? Each Pure Shea Butter retails for only $15 at usa.loccitane.com. Talk about a true treat for the skin!
