L'Occitane Shea Butter Honey Whipped Body Cream
Forgive us for being somewhat body-obsessed right now. That's because under the vests, the Wolford opaques, the socks and the various cashmere layers, our bodies (and probably yours) have a serious tendency to dryness. It's very, very common as winter drags on - not least because tight clothes themselves 'wick' moisture from the skin.
L'Occitane's shea-butter-enriched body balms and butters are familiar to many of you - but if you're a 'honey monster' (and almost as many of our readers seem to love the smell of honey as they do roses), you'll be attracted to this like - well, a bee to a honeypot. It is really dripping with sweetness, scent-wise.
There's a whole, limited-edition Shea Honey range, actually - including a Shea Honey Foaming Gel, and one of L'Occitane's nifty handbag tubes of Shea Honey Hand Cream - but our thirsty bodies have been enjoying this best. It really lives up to the 'whipped' name: almost soufflé- or mousse-like, and much easier to apply than some shea butter skin treats, which can solidify.
This stays light and easy-to-apply - even in a freezing bathroom. So: no need to stand round shivering while you try to melt your body butter with your hairdryer, on a winter morning. (We've been there.)
It is, however, limited edition.
So be quick, honey...
