L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Scrub

The hot weather and long hours outside in the sun has started to dry out my skin. It was perfect timing to try L’Occitane’s Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Scrub.

The product  in a word is decadent. The formula is thick and rich like whipped butter and with the little nutshells  it exfoliates and softens my skin at the same time!  I use it once to twice a week and have noticed my face is much softer and done are any rough or dry patches. Closest you can get to a spa treatment in the comfort of your own home.

The Ultra Rich Face Scrub has been specially formulated to gently exfoliate dry or very dry skin. Its finely ground nutshells help to efficiently eliminate dead skin cells and impurities. Its creamy base, enriched in shea butter (10%) and chestnut extract, helps the skin to maintain its natural moisture level. Skin is left perfectly clear, smooth and soft. Skin texture is refined and the complexion is more luminous.

Complement your routine with the repairing Shea Fabulous Serum and the 25% Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Cream; the ultimate nourishing and protecting winter hydrating treatment.
