My first brush with L'Occitane.com was just a few weeks back when I saw their Shea Butter ultra rich body cream on a friend's nightstand. I generally love shea butter and since I'd never heard of L'Occitane, the curious cat in me just had to try this very interesting looking bottle. Of course my friends rave reviews did little to suppress my curiosity so try I did. And wow! It smelled absolutely divine and the cream itself was so luxurious and velvety that I felt instantly moisturized and pampered. So of course, the minute I was on my computer, I had to look it up and share it with you ladies...
Created in 1976 by Olivier Baussan, L'Occitane offers a whole range of natural beauty products and fragrances inspired by the local Mediterranean cultures. They believe in phytotherapy or the art of healing through plants and have been using over 200 active ingredients for over 30 years to create natural, effective and amazing products that will enrich your whole being. Essentially, it is a combination of age old knowledge and modern research that helps create products with limited parabens, chemical sun filters and silicones and more natural goodness! Here are some of my favorite products from L'Occitane.com :
1. Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Cream
Price: $39.00 at usa.loccitane.com
Why not start with the product that first sparked my interest in this line? This ultra rich shea butter cream is enriched with linseed, mallow, sweet almond, honey extracts, apricot oil and vitamin E. I love how it's creamy and yet non greasy and the scents of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences will just blow your mind!
