L’occitane Ultra Rich Body Cream Review

loccitane ultra rich body butter

Claims : The Ultra Rich Body Cream is a complete body care treatment for dry to very dry skin. Exceptionally concentrated in shea butter (25%), it intensely nourishes and protects the skin and helps to restore the hydrolipidic film. Enriched with moisturising extracts (linseed, marshmallow, sweet almond and honey) and softening apricot oil, it durably hydrates for 24 hours and makes skin soft and supple. The rich and smooth texture is easy to apply and is quickly absorbed without leaving any greasy film.

This product is free from: synthetic colorants, animal ingredients, formol or formaldehyde, phtalates, triclosan, BHA, BHT.

Price : Rs 2,650 for 200ml

My Experience: I am always on a look out for products for dry skin. When I read ’25 % shea butter and ultra rich’ on L’occitane’s body cream’s jar, it sounded music to my ears. :P It is a huge jar of super luxurious body cream. I have to say it is EXCELLENT. I basically like everything about it:

  • It is a rich body cream but does not feel heavy or greasy at all.
  • It gets absorbed within seconds and keeps the skin super moisturized for entire day.
  • It has a very mild comforting fragrance that lingers on for a while. I don’t know but it smells a bit like babies to me -warm and sort of sleepy. :P
  • It tackles dryness of knees and elbows.
  • It spreads easily. You dont need a ton of product to use in one go.
  • The 25% shea butter actually works.Plus it includes a lot of goody good oils that help in keeping skin hydrated and moisturized for all day long.
The only cons would be the tub packaging. But oh well! I’d live with it. :P

Rati, it’s always good to see you review products. Having been a reader of yours from early 2010, I miss the frequency of your review posts. Reading you makes me feel like a feeling of being at home. :) btw, Accutane never fails to impress right. Lusting after them but way beyond my budget. Nevertheless treat for the.eyes!

*loccitane. Currently making do with dove intense/indulgent moisturizing lotion in Shea butter. Hydrates all day. Great for winters.

Reply

Rati November 19, 2012 at 10:08 am

I was thinking of picking up dove moisturizer myself. i’d do so now. An extra body lotion for winters never hurts :))

yeah frequency has become less but I am always around.Thanks. :))

paraben product?? :-(

Reply

Rati November 19, 2012 at 11:05 am

most of the products do have parabens. Parabens are used as preservatives in most products. We can mostly look at the good part and move ahead. try FE products if you are super particular.
