"I have a seven-month-old daughter and the business of being a first-time mum – not to mention all those sleepless nights! – means my skincare regime has slipped dramatically down my list of priorities lately. I have dry, sensitive skin so it’s really important for me to keep it moisturised, but it can be difficult to find a cream that’s nourishing enough to last all day at the best of times – never mind when I’m rushing around after a baby!

"Luckily for me, L’Occitane’s Light Comforting Cream came to the rescue just as my skin was starting to look really worse for wear. It was exactly what I needed to get my skin back in tip-top condition and as it’s formulated with 5 per cent shea butter, it feels super luxurious and indulgent to apply. Busy mums do need a bit of pampering every now and then! It also protects against extreme cold winter weather so it’s going to be perfect for the coming months. It smells gorgeous too, which is an added bonus."


"Shea butter is rich in Omega 6, Karitene and Vitamin E and these active elements have exceptional properties to help moisturise, nourish and protect the skin every day. In fact, shea butter has become a bit of a cult ingredient for L’Occitane and has even helped pave the way for the economic emancipation of women in Burkina Faso. Thirty years ago it was only sold at local markets in the African country but when L’Occitane heard about the sacred tree, harvested only by women, it placed a huge order and began a mutually beneficial partnership. There were only a dozen or so women involved to begin with, and now there’s over 15,000 of them working in the industry. L’Occitane has even been cited by the UN as an Exemplary Company for its actions in Burkina Faso.

"Supporting women in developing countries as well as keeping my skin soft and healthy? What’s not to love!"
