Gentle enough for daily face cleansing, the Ultra Rich Face Soap is formulated with a soft vegetal cleansing base. The moisturizing soap is rich in shea butter (8%) and gently cleanses the skin without drying, respecting the skin’s hydrolipidic film. It forms a creamy lather that will leave the skin feeling comfortable, soft and fresh.
Rs. 550.00 for 100 gm soap bar.
The soap comes individually packed/laminated sealed in plastic. I wonder if you can make that in the picture below.
My Verdict on L’Occitane Ultra Rich Face Soap:
The last time I used “soap bar” was around some 10 years back when my mother bought the then very expensive amongst other soaps “Dove soap” 😀 . With the introduction of face washes in my life, I never looked back /have never ever used any soap bar since then on my face, but when I saw this particular soap on the L’Occitane website, I felt like trying it; as in winters, I prefer to use creamy cleansing milks instead of face washes. The words like “8 % shea butter,” “Ultra Rich,” and “Extra Gentle” seemed perfect; just what I wanted. Moreover, it was “Loccitane” 😀
The soap comes in a nice, beige-colored cardboard box and further tightly packed in a clean film. It’s a cream-coloured clear soap, i.e., with no scrub or any other particles. Also, it’s a soft soap and dissolves fast, I make sure I dry it up before storing it in the soap box. :balle:
I use it as per the instructions on the box, by taking water, creating lather and massaging on the face for 2 minutes. The soap lathers up well enough. It has very mild fragrance and smells exactly like Johnson’s baby soap.
The soap cleans up my face quite well, I can see/feel/notice that my skin looks clean and it also removes my light daily makeup. The soap is a mild and a gentle one and I don’t get any dry, stretchy feel, post washing this off. Well, it seems decent enough, but hello, its like the costliest soap bar I have purchased till date and I was expecting it to make my face really soft/velvety and add at least some moisture if not loads of it. It does nothing in that respect. I have used this soap for night time cleansing for about 15 plus days, but I wasn’t satisfied enough.
I was expecting it to give me that soft, hydrated feel on face which I get after washing with cleansing milks. I am not saying it is useless or bad, but I guess I was expecting a LOT from this and it failed to live up to “those expectations.” I still use it after every 2-3 days and I am just going to finish this off and I don’t think I will be repurchasing it. I would rather buy the L’Occitane Immortelle Foaming Face Wash next.
I believe this will suit most skin types (except acne prone) in case you are still looking forward to try this.

Cons of L’Occitane Ultra Rich Face Soap:
