Fluffy little pick of the week: L'Occitane Pure Shea Butter

This unassuming little pot of 100% pure shea butter from French cosmetics house L’Occitane fell into my lap like manna from heaven, during a particularly bad skin spell the other week. Thanks to an allergic reaction, my poor face had dried out and puffed up to epic proportions and become extremely sensitised, reacting badly to anything I tried to soothe it with. The brand had just sent me some samples from their new Shea Butter range – which launched nationwide last week - and this natural beauty balm was the only thing that worked to nourish and repair my skin without irritating it further. After two days of liberal use, including around the eye area, things had more or less returned to normal -- and my little pot was close to empty. This is a new essential for my toiletries bag and at just €8.95 for an 8ml tin I might pick up a couple, just so I don't run out...

L’Occitane’s new Shea Butter range also includes an Ultra Rich Face Cream (€36.95), Protective Cream with SPF 20 (€36.95) and Ultra Gentle Moisturiser (€31.95). It’s available from L’Occitane stores nationwide or from Arnotts, Dublin.
