For spring, L’Occitane en Provence has introduced a new lighter version of its Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream – the Ultra Soft Cream. Available in three springtime scents, Vanilla Bouquet, Lime Zesty, and Rose Heart, the Ultra Soft Cream contains 10% shea butter (compared to 25% in their Shea Ultra Rich Body Cream).
The texture of the Ultra Soft Cream is like a really densely whipped mousse that’s dense but fluffy at the same time. Once rubbed into the palms, it melts into a a light cream that can be massaged easily into the skin. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t leave any residue. Rose Heart leaves a very light, not-too-floral, and never overpowering soft rose scent.
One highlight of this body cream is the adorable packaging; it reminds me of giant macarons! Just the packaging alone makes me want to collect them all. I imagine that I’ll be using this to store jewelry or other trinkets after I’m done using the cream.
The downside to this spring body cream is that I found it not moisturizing enough for the cold winter months. I will probably leave it to use as the weather gets warmer because it really is a lovely body cream.
Priced at $28 for 100 mL, the L’Occitane en Provence Ultra Soft Cream is available in stores and online now. For a limited time, you can also get all 3 scents in one set for just $60, with a savings of $24.
