Shea butter‘s protective and nourishing properties make for a desirable ingredient. This truly exceptional element leaves the skin comfortable, soft and supple.
Debuting just last week, L’Occitane adds a touch of winter cheer by using shea butter as a main ingredient and combining it with three seductive scents in its limited-edition collection. Shea Flowers of Love features the new scents Rose Tenderness, Passionate Jasmine and Subtle Violet (sampled, pictured).
The Sweetest Kiss Lip Balm 15 ml ($12.00), The Smoothest Caress Hand Cream 30 ml ($12.00; sampled/pictured), The Greatest Love of All Hand Cream 150 ml ($28.00), The Softest Embrace Ultra Rich Body Cream 100 ml ($22.00; sampled/pictured) and * The Strongest Commitment Solidarity Soap 50g ($3.00) are all included in this limited-edition collection.
*L’Occitane is committed to supporting the visually impaired and 100% of profits from the sale of the Rose Tenderness Solidarity Soap will finance eye health projects run by NGOs in developing countries with the support of the L’Occitane Foundation. Now there’s the spirit of giving!
L’Occitane released Immortelle DIVINE New Ultimate Skincare back in September 2013, and I had the pleasure of sampling the Divine Cream Ultimate Youth Care ($106.00 50 ml). There are 4 products that were specifically created to target issues regarding the skin’s anti-aging process.
There are 5 patents pending, as this new formula contains the Corsican Immortelle Flower which when used internally increased activity of the gene that protects cells and codes. Used externally, it boosted activity of the gene coding for key enzymes responsible for the elimination of photoproducts, which cause the acceleration of cell mutation and skin aging.
The actual flower itself never fades once picked. In 2004, with the aim of guaranteeing the traceability of the flower, L’Occitane set up an organic cultivation program for Immortelle in Corsica! Now over 3 billion immortelle flowers are harvested every year for L’Occitane.
The new collection includes Divine Lotion 200 ml ($54.00), Divine Extract 30 ml ($116.00 – New Formula), Divine Cream 50 ml (sampled, $106.00 – New Formula) and Divine Eyes 15 ml ($70.00 – New Formula).
L’Occitane already revealed and patented the anti-aging properties of the flower, but it turns out that the legendary flower still holds many secrets to make known in a new formulated compound, which L’Occitane protects in its 5th patent…
Only time will tell if my skin feels more supple, radiant and nourished. I can tell you that the texture feels delightful when blended into my skin; no greasy residue or tackiness is felt after application. I fell for L’Occitane after trying their BB Cream and continue to be a fan of their products.
