L'Occitane International Womens day Soft balm

L'Occitane International Women's day solidarity BALM

Every year on the 8th March people all around the world celebrate International women day, What a great day right? Who knew this day existed? It is a day to inspire woman and celebrate achievements. With L'occitanes foundation working closely with the women of burkino faso, they have released a soft balm which 100% of the profits goes back into to the foundation and back to women. 

A little more about the history..

It all started back in the 1980s, when founder of L'occitane Olivier Baussam went to Burkino Faso.  In this place he discovered the miracle ingredient which is SHEA BUTTER, Which is in a lot of products you see nowadays. 

The soft balm
Yes, a measly four pound!
This is store only, they don't sell them online 

Its a fantastic apricot scent, smells a little like mango too. It is a good size tin a lot bigger than your average Nivea. So with it being a high street brand as well as getting the most for your money. It is going towards a good cause. 

You can use it
- Dry areas, elbows etc, 
- Cuticles 
- Sore chapped lips
-Sore nose
-Under lipstick
-Flyway hair 

For me, this is perfect on the lips! I am not sure about on the hair, putting a silky butter on the hair for me just screams greasy!

Buy one and see what you think! 


  1. Seems like a great product


  2. I've tried their hand cream and it's the best, this balm must be great too!
