ultra rich cream

Crème Ultra Rich Corpe Body Cream

What is it?

An exceptionally high concentration of shea butter (25%), it helps to intensely nourish, protect and restore the skin’s hydrolipidic film.

Sarah’s review…

As we go into Autumn I need to give my body a much needed moisture boost and there’s no better skincare saviour than this Ultra Rich Body Cream. The texture is so rich and ultimately indulgent. It leaves skin feeling so hydrated and super-silky smooth to-the-touch. What’s great is that the intense Shea Butter formula and softening apricot oil leaves my skin feeling wonderfully hydrated all day long. The texture absorbs instantly so you don’t have to keep rubbing it in.

eye cream

Precious Immortelle Eye Balm

What is it?

Immortelle cell extracts contain incredibly powerful active ingredients, for patented, dramatically enhanced anti-ageing action.

Sarah’s review…

The eye area is one of the first places to be affected by signs of ageing, so it’s vital for me personally to pay extra special attention to this area. So, when I heard about this exceptional eye balm containing Immortelle cell extract I was instantly sold. Immortelle stimulates collagen production, which in turn helps to fill in deep wrinkles while also firming the eye contour and reducing dark circles and puffiness. The texture glides on effortlessly, I like the silky smooth feel. And, the results over continued use are incredible.

Shea Butter Hand Cream

What is it?

L’Occitane’s worldwide best seller! A super-smoothing synergy of 20% shea butter, honey and sweet almond extract blended with the light and alluring aromas of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences.

Sarah’s review…

This is the best hand cream EVER! I keep this in my handbag, in my bedroom and in my bathroom. Infused with skin loving ingredients including shea butter, honey and sweet almond extract along with calming aromas of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences, this hand cream isn’t just any hand cream, it’s the crème de la crème of all hand creams. The balm-like texture glides on and absorbs instantly helping to heal, hydrate and protect. It’s truly DIVINE – a must-have for autumn/winter.

cream divine

Divine Cream

What is it?

Corrects all signs of ageing. An anti-ageing cream with a rich, smooth texture that gives an immediate feeling of comfort. Acts at the heart of cells to help correct all the signs of ageing.

Sarah’s review…

If there’s one thing you should invest in, it’s a good moisturiser and this one is insanely good. Not only does the bottle look like something sent down from the beauty gods but the incredible formula fights visible signs of ageing to reveal a more youthful and radiant complexion. For me, skincare is key especially as it helps your make up to look better. So this wonder cream that melts into the skin to firm, nourish and protect while imparting a gorgeous natural glow is a firm winner.

Repairing Hair Mask

What is it?

A regenerating mask with a rich, silky texture to help repair, strengthen and protect dry and damaged hair.

Sarah’s review…

As I hit my 40s (week) I have noticed that my hair needs just as much attention as my skin. Hair can break easily and become finer during your 40s and that coupled with dying those pesky greys can cause havoc on my locks so I have been on the hunt for something that will repair and transform damaged hair. This magic green pot holds the secret to strengthening hair from the roots with its concoction of special oils and natural ingredients including shea butter, sweet almond oil and plant-derived amino acids. The best bit… it doesn’t take forever, you can put on the mask for as little as 3 minutes to reap the benefits.

Ultra-Rich Body Scrub

What is it?

A body scrub enriched with shea butter, apricot oil and finely ground nutshells.

Skye’s review…

Scrubs often get forgotten but they’re essential for optimum skin health. This one is full of natural ingredients and removes rough patches without being too harsh. The shea butter leaves skin sumptuously soft and hydrated. Apply the ultra-rich cream for the ultimate skin comforting experience.




Shea Light Comforting Cream

What is it?

A light moisturiser for normal to combination skin.

Skye’s review…

Shea butter is ultra-rich but this 5% version is lightweight and non-greasy. Having applied the moisturiser in the morning it kept my skin hydrated all day and made for perfect make up application.



Shea Gentle Toner

What is it?

A rebalancing facial toner enriched with shea and floral waters.

Skye’s review…

Double cleansing is one of the latest beauty buzzes but I find that it’s too harsh on my skin. Applying this gentle toner after cleansing is the perfect middle ground. It removes all traces of cleanser and make up that you didn’t realise you hadn’t washed off, leaving skin rebalanced and super clean.
