L'Occitane Shea Ultra Soft Cream

Let's not beat about the bush: if there's a day (or a night) in the year when we want 'touch-me' soft skin, it's Valentine's. Which is all the excuse you need to treat yourself to a tin of new skin deliciousness from L'Occitane (who've done incredibly well in our soon-to-be-launched book The Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible). We haven't trialled this with our testers yet, but it's wowed us: a fabulous cream which delivers nourishing shea butter, one of L'Occitane's signature ingredients, but in a really easy-to-use, sinks-in-fast, leaves-you-velvety format.

Three completely different scent options:  Vanilla Bouquet (which is actually quite floral and complex), uplifting Lime Zesty (we love its citrus zing), and Rose Heart, a sublime rose.  And how Valentine-perfect is that one, eh…?
