L'Occitane Shea Butter Skincare Essentials

Did you know that in the 1908's, L'Occitane was one of the first laboratories to develop a complete skincare range made with Shea Butter? Well it has gone on to be one of the best selling ranges and is suitable for all skin types.

Rich in Omega 6, Karitene and Vitamin E, Shea butter is nourishing, protecting and repairing, it is an ingredient that does it all and my skin loves it and laps it up. I was recently sent two amazing products from L'Occitane which I am absolutely loving - Shea Face Soothing Fluid and Shea Face Comforting Oil.



L'Occitane Shea Butter Skincare Winter Essentials

Shea Face Soothing Fluid has been especially designed for sensitive skin. It soothes and hydrates skin while protecting it from external aggressions which can lead to tightness, redness and prickling or burning sensations. L'Occitane have used carefully selected active ingredients rosehip and calendula and have combined with shea butter (5%) to help:

• nourish dry skin and optimise skin's barrier function
• soothe the skin
• strengthen skin’s natural defences

On the skin this fluid is incredibly soothing and hydrating.  With all of this stormy weather we seem to have right now with the wind and rain literally battering the skin, I find that I need to use products that do that little bit extra.

Shea Face Comforting Oil is a 100% natural face oil enriched with shea oil (5%) to nourish and repair the skin. Combining Shea Oil (5%) for its unique nourishing properties, Marula Oil for its antioxidant properties the formula helps the skin to regenerate by strengthening its barrier function. Skin feels better protected, soft and supple.

I have combination skin with an oily T-zone and used to assume that adding an oil to oily skin would lead to a total oil slick, this has never been the case. I find this oil absorbs really quickly into the skin leaving no trace it was ever there, the texture is a really fine oil and it has a dry finish. When using it, I pump, using the dispenser, a few drops onto the palm of my hand and rubbing them together to slightly warm the oil, massage into my face and neck. The result is one of soft, smooth and really hydrated skin, perfect for this horrible cold and windy weather.


Both of these products work exceptionally well together or on their own and are perfect for skin which needs a little bit of TLC, especially with the rapid change in weather.

  3. I'll be honest.... From time to time in the shower I try out the wife's stuff... One said Shea oil but was with something else I can't remember, I smelt it and my eye brows nearly fell off BUT not before I'd already smothered my body in it and it felt great! Sorry for the unwanted visuals :/

  20. I love Loccitance. Their products are always high quality. The only thing is that they are a little expensive sometimes. I have not tried this products before but I like shea butter so it could be great to try. At the moment I'm using a face oil that is fantastic too which is the Marula Oil, xx
