I am so behind in writing this post up! As much as I love skincare products, I do find it hard to write about them on my blog. Thus I end up sidetracked and show you more pretty makeup and nail polishes! So the day has finally come.........here is the L'Occitane Shea Skincare products I have been using since their launch (February I believe?).
I bought the 5% Cleansing Oil, Gentle Toner and Light 5% Comforting Cream. All have a wonderfully light Shea fragrance to them so it's not too overpowering on the face.
The 5% Shea Cleansing Oil can be used on either dry or wet skin. I use it on dry skin as I feel it removes my makeup for efficiently. It is a lovely silky formula which I work over my face and neck then with wet hands I emulsify the oil into a milky consistency, then rinse.
Next onto the Gentle Toner. Now I will say I've never been one for toners and this is why. To me they just feel wet and I end up flapping my hands around my face to dry off before putting on my moisturiser. I've used less product on a cotton pad and still have the same result. It does, once dry, give me a nice base for the Light 5% Comforting Cream......
The Comforting Cream is exactly what it says on the jar. Considering this contains Shea the cream is very light and airy; almost milky to touch. A small amount of cream goes a long way and I found it soaks in nice and quickly so I'm able to get makeup application done swiftly in the mornings so we can get to school on time.
They are very good value for money too. The Cleansing Oil 200ml is £17, Gentle Toner 200ml is £15 and Light Comforting Cream 50ml £26. I have repurchased both the Oil and Toner and they have run out just as I finished my jar of Comforting Cream. Basically I used two Oils and Toners to one Comforting Cream. Not bad when you think about it like that!
Overall verdict is a good one. Although the toner isn't my kind of product I did use and repurchase it as I like to use the correct system when it comes to skincare. I have oily/combination skin and these didn't aggravate my skin at all or cause breakouts. If you like the L'Occitane Shea products these are certainly ones to try in future. Enjoy xx
