It took me a long time to finally get my hands on L’Occitane’s Pure Shea Butter, considering the many products that I’ve tried coming from different brands. Now I’m a little bit obsessed with it and I’ve been using this in a number of ways.
L’Occitane’s pure shea butter is organically sourced, and this is why I really love it! I also like its paper disk on the product. It is a proof that no one touched the product before me and it reassures me that it is fresh and unspoiled. Yeah, I’m particular with cleanliness
Pure Shea butter is ideal for nourishing and softening dry, dehydrated skin, so it should be a wonder product for me. However, it also needs to be melted between the hands before applying. I find it easier to just scrape out a little at a time and apply directly on to my skin. It also takes some massaging to rub it into the skin, but it disappears almost completely without leaving any visible greasy residue. And guess what, this small tin itself could last up to a month! Yes, it could and it depends on your usage but for me, it really lasts up to a month.
Here are the ways to use L’Occitane’s Pure Shea Butter
I tried to replace my lip balm with it as my go-to night time lip treatment. I rub my finger into the tub trying to get a small amount of the product and then I rub two fingers together to warm it up slightly before applying it to my lips and then each morning I’ve woken up with a smooth soft lips.
You can also use it around the corner of your eyes as an intensive moisturizer especially its shea that is supposed to be a great anti-aging product.
- Scaly Bits
I have this annoying dry, scaly patches on my knee and my normal body lotion wasn’t doing anything to remove it. So I applied pure shea butter to my knee, almost overnight, the dry patch was gone!
- Red Hands and Nose during winter
Especially on winter, red irritated patches on hands are developing and Shea butter can do great to that. I whipped out my tin of shea butter and applied to the affected areas. And I noticed improvements in the appearance over 2 weeks.
L’Occitane Pure Shea Butter has many different usage right? That’s why I love it so much! And here’s the great news, it has also different scents. Above all their scents, I am fond of Shea Butter Jasmine Ultra Rich Body Cream because of its jasmine extract that leaves captivating scent. Even my blanket smells beautiful the next morning!
