Linda Gomez/Timeless Beauty
Most of you know from my previous columns and recommendations, I am pretty much a drugstore type of beauty shopper. I generally don’t find most cosmetics or other beauty products to be worth the extra dough, but once in a while, you discover a product so good it turns out to be worth the money!
Even with our beautiful desert winter, between running the heater at home and the cold air outside, your skin can still quickly dry out. And when it gets dry, it can also become itchy and flaky and suddenly you’re willing to spend a little more.
Several months ago, my daughter gave me a jar of body cream called Ultra Rich Body by L'Occitane.
From the first time I tried it, I knew it was different than most anything I have found. It’s 25% Shea Butter, smells wonderful and is extra thick and creamy.
By my usual standards, this cream is expensive. It’s about $40 for the 7ounce jar, but a little goes a long way. It also absorbs well right after the shower and will last you the day once applied.
I especially like it for the crepe paper looking skin on my arms and hands, legs and feet. Your skin feels soft for hours and even through hand washing there remains a nice base. I also apply it at night before bed and love how my skin feels when I wake up.
This is also an important time to remind everyone about the importance of buying authentic products when it comes to beauty products. In this case for example, purchase at one of the many L’Occitane stores in the mall (including Fashion Square in Vegas), or directly from the company website.
Beauty products that are much cheaper and seem too good to be true when not sold directly by the manufacturing company are very likely knock-offs. And for anything that you may be applying to your body, it’s important to not expose yourself to any outside chemicals that may be floating around a non-regulated knock-off version!
Additionally, when you buy direct from L’Occitane they are very generous with samples of their many fabulous products! I'm just now testing some others to see if they are worth the extra money. Even for a frugal girl like me, this one’s worth every penny!
