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:

Enriched with fair trade Shea Butter (10%), this Moisturizing Certified Organic* Shea Lip Balm helps to moisturize, nourish and protect dry lips. The comfort, suppleness and softness of your lips will be fully restored.

*Natural and Organic Cosmetic certified by Ecocert Greenlife according to Ecocert
standard available at http://cosmetics.ecocert.com. Fair Trade approved by ECOCERT Environnement according to the ESR standards available at http://www.ecocert.com

100% of the total ingredients are from natural origin

55% of the total ingredients are from Organic Farming

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?

The Fave: Baked shadow from BH Cosmetics in Aphrodite.

This is really close to MAC’s Cranberry.

I will post a review of the lipstick because it is frighteningly unflattering color. It is the shade of my flesh….so yeah. Why?

Pixi bronzer is a perfect shade for me. It’s great for contouring.

The lip crayon is ok. It is a red, but I’m not sure of the shade, still testing it out.

Starlooks eye liner in Topaz. It’s fun and sparkly.

Up until this year I have been afraid of pink lipstick.  I thought it was “too girly” or “too young” but in all honesty, it’s the best color for my fair skin tone.  There are so many great pinks out there.  I just stumbled across this amazing list.
