Review – L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm

3 Jun

Last Christmas, I bought the L’Occitane Advent Calendar and discovered some wonderful products from the line.  I was already a fan of their lotions and body butters, so learning about other items in their collection was fun.

One thing I fell in love with was the L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm.

Loccitane Lip Balm

From L’Occitane:

10% of the total ingredients come from fair trade

My Thoughts

First thing I noticed was that signature L’Occitane scent.  I really love it, so I was thrilled this was scented with it.  I was mildly concerned it would be a weird scent/taste.

So, whew!  The first concern eliminated immediately!

Second thing, this felt so nice on my lips!  It’s not greasy or oily.  It’s just slightly slick. It feels nice and comforting.  I use it before bed because it just sort of sets the mood for relaxation for me.

Will I purchase this?

Yes.  It’s one of my favorite things and I use it almost daily.

Is it moisturizing?

Yes, my lips never got chapped when I was using this.

Have you guys used the L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Rich Lip Balm?  Are you a fan of L’Occitane?

    I usually have to skip this brand because of the fragrance (scented hand creams and don’t get along), but I would be totally up for trying out their lip balm! I love anything with shea butter.

      Oh too bad! I really like it! I’m all out of it now, I’m probably going to repurchase. Sephora reviews are pretty great as are the reviews on L’Occitane’s website. What’s your favorite lip balm?
