Believe it or not, it’s been 25 years since L’Occitane launched their original and iconic shea butter body collection. In celebration of that milestone, the French brand are putting a twist on the incredibly popular formula by launching a limited edition trio of ‘whipped’ products – all of which are enriched with shea for an added hit of luxurious hydration. The body cream is so light and fluffy it looks good enough to eat, sitting in the tin pot like marshmallow fluff; it’s got the same delicious scent as the original and (thanks to the 10% shea) melts into the skin to leave it feeling silky soft. The shower foam provides a lightweight handful of bubbles, while the hand cream offers a concoction not dissimilar to squirty cream – it’s genius!
I’ve never seen a hand cream so fun, tasty-looking and lightweight before; not only does it contain 25% shea butter to hydrate hands and
leave them feeling soft, but it makes applying hand cream a complete dream. Who hasn’t always wanted to apply a squirty cream-like formula to their hands and rub it in all over? L’Occitane are certainly a brand to grab attention, create great innovations and know how to celebrate with style. I love how they’ve put a simple, but incredibly effective, twist on a cult classic and pushed the boundaries of their brand; this will no doubt be a favourite with those already hugely passionate about the original formula, as well as making great gifts or treats for those looking for something new. What do you think of this ‘whipped’ collection?
The hand cream is priced £8.00, the body cream £18.00 and the shower foam £14.00. All three products are limited edition and available in store this month.
