How gorgeous is that packaging and the leaflet behind it? The packaging design is inspired by Bogolan cloth, a traditional West African Fabric. The L’Occitane Shea Butter range has had a make over and all the products are decorated in the with Bogolan type designs. These limited edition products are also inspired with scents from all over Africa and the hand cream is the Desert Rose from Morocco. Also in the range is an Ultra Rich Body and Lip Balm, all are available in three scents, Desert Rose, Hibiscus Flower and Cocoa Flower.
Desert Rose is a beautiful scent, it’s definitely rose-y but also a bit zingy and fresh too. It’s beautiful.
L’Occitane Shea Butter is Fair Trade is purchased in a partnership with the women who make the Shea Butter in Burkina Faso.
It’s a worthy product, it’s beautifully scented and it really keeps my hands beautifully soft. Gorgeous stuff. The hand cream comes in two sizes 30ml and 150ml which are £7.50 and £17.50 respectively.
