What it is:
A smooth and soft body milk to nourish and protect dry skin.
What it is formulated to do: Enriched with 15 percent shea butter, natural honey, and apricot oil, this moisturizing lotion absorbs quickly into the skin to leave it soft and radiant all day. Its unique texture is the perfect balance between intense nutrition and light texture.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
This would probably be one of those ultra boring reviews to read. In fact do people actually read a body lotion review? I hope there are a few like me. I love this product! L'Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion is on the pricey side for a lotion but the way it moisturizes is just amazing!!
This is a small bottle from a set that I had purchased and I realized its worth this winter.
Color: Pale Vanilla Cream
Texture and Consistency: Dense, heavy, rich, soft, thick milky lotion. Not overly thick though.
Scent: Very mild scent like Baby Powder. Absolutely delicate and pleasant.
Application: After shower on the skin. Not on face.
Feel on Skin: It feels lovely and rich. This smooth, soft milky lotion spreads easily and get absorbed pretty quickly. I would still say within 40 seconds to a minute, the lotion is completely sinks in the body. This is slightly greasy, but not oily and not at all sticky. The lotion moisturizes the skin wonderfully. The skin feels hydrated and remains soft for a very long time. The skin does not feels slippery after application.
The scent is mild, subtle and pleasant and does not interferes with any fragrance or perfume.
Verdict: This lotion is not only a boon for dry skin but is delicate enough for young kids. I don't know if this would be safe for babies though. Never tried. This is at par with my Neutrogena Body lotion (review) in terms of moisturizing, though the texture and scents are absolutely different. I am short of adjective now to describe this. In a nutshell, a moisturizing and hydrating, safe body lotion.
Packaging: Mine is a small bottle, so it has a flip top cap. The one that is available at Sephora has a pump, which is very convenient and hygienic.
A quality product, though a bit on pricey side.
