First off, let me say I use and like many L'Occitane products: the excellent Hand Cream, Foot Cream, Shea Mask, among others. So I had high hopes for the 25% Shea Butter Ulta Rich Body Cream to help with my dry skin. Unfortunately, I wasn't impressed at all. After finishing a whole tub for which I spent hefty $35 I can now say that I would definitely not purchase again. Not only did this cream not really moisturize, but it also took forever to sink into my skin. After trying to spread it on my skin after the morning shower I realized that there was no way getting dressed within an hour of using it! And even worse, the Shea Butter would ball up like I never experienced before with any shea product. So I thought I'd use it in the evening and let it sink in overnight. But even the next morning it would still sit on my skin, giving me that dreaded sticky feeling. So I tried to vary the amount I was using, or warming it up in my hands before applying, but it didn't make a difference whether I used much or little. As this product is so costly, I tried everything to make it work for me. But now that I used it up, I'm glad to move on to a rich product that actually works. I'm now a happy user of Kiehl's Creme de Corps.

I got a free sample package from the L'Occitane store and it makes me smell like baby powder. Everytime I move I get a waft of baby powder smell and it's gross! It moisterized my skin ok, I have bad exema all over my body (I live in one of the dryes climats in North America) and it seemed to help my skin feel less painful but the smell really turns me off.

This cream does not seem to be doing anything to my skin at all. It is hard to spread too so i have to use a hefty amount for a small area, and it goes so quickly as a result. L'occitane has a lot of nice products but I do not think I will buy this cream again.

I have really dry skin on my legs, and it can get itchy and flaky if I don't exfoliate and moisturize, so I put body creams to the test, and I really love this one. I don't think it's too heavy or greasy at all. In fact, it's nice to be able to touch my skin after a few hours and find it still soft, since most lotions seem to disappear on me rather quickly. The fragrance is really nice and light and won't clash with perfume.

I'm actually on the fence on this one. I think it was too thick for my taste, it moisturized my cuticles well... It was hard to put on, wasn't smooth at all. The scent fades, which is good in this case.

I guess it's too expensive to use as a cuticle cream so I won't be buying this product.

Got the tiny travel size just to try it out, which has a very cute little jar I'll use for something else. Consistancy is rich and smooth, but it does go on pretty greasy. It does absorb well and completely, but there is still this slight greasy feeling left behind, but my skin still feels dry! Very weird. Doesn't make my skin look glowy, soft, healthy and moisturized like my Origins PW body cream does. The smell is lovely, but the cream qualities just don't do it for me.

This cream is costly but you get heaps! Moisturises and absorbs well without being greasy but still prefer the Body Shop butters for intense moisture. My problem was that I used L'occitanes Honey Harvest Body balm which gave me severe a scabies/hives-like outbreak, it was the most disgusting thing I've seen in my life. All my pores on my arms and legs were raised, red and angry and itching so much that I could not sleep at night. I used it for 3-4 weeks before I realised that the cream was the culprit as I seriously thought I had scabies and even got treatment for my so-called "scabies" lol. Took 8 doses of cortisone tablets daily to finally get rid of it. A month later I tried one application of L'Occitanes Ultra rich 25% shea body cream and my skin was flaring up again so I know I'm severely allergic to something in their body creams and it wasn't just a coincidence. Funny thing though is that I use the Honey face mask and it works like a treat. My advice is that if you started getting irritated after using this- STOP using it.

For the hefty $30 price tag, I expected a lot more. A LOT MORE. It was moisturizing, but for this price, no way.

I actually got this as a sample, but I have fallen in love with it. I don't know, I might have to take out a loan to buy a jar when I run out because it is so good. I like the scent. It's kind of a rich, almondy, buttery scent. The thing that I like is that I can put this on the back of my upper arms and it eliminates the bumpiness.
