Reader Review -L’Occitane Ultra Rich Shower Cream


Thanks to Elaine M. for the tip! I am a huge shower cream addict and I can’t wait to give this a try.

I have just seen the post by Erin about a body lotion she is using while pregnant. I noticed her comments about dry itchy skin, and I’d like to recommend a product to her that helped me a lot when I was pregnant. I found that most shower creams and gels were too drying, or my skin had become sensitive to them, as my skin was very itchy and uncomfortable, even after using special maternity body creams, body butters and oil gels. I then discovered L’Occitane shea butter shower cream, which made a huge difference to me. They come in a variety of natural fragrances, but are quite subtle, which suited me as smells could really set off my morning sickness. I can never use some Dove products again simply because of the smell for that reason!

L’Occitane Ultra Rich Shower Cream

This delicate and generous shower cream gently cleanses body and hair while preserving their natural balance. Creamy texture and detergent-free formula, with high percentage of 5% of nourishing Shea Butter, natural coconut foaming base and soy proteins, leave skin soft and supple, and hair with high shine. In a squeeze bottle perfect for shower and travel.
