Few weeks ago L’Occitane added 3 new products to their shea butter line – a comforting fluid, mist and an oil. I was sent to test an oil and today I’m bringing you my thoughts on it. As per usual, let’s see what L’Occitane says about it.
” With its fine, silky texture and dry finish, Comforting Oil helps to nourish and comfort even very dry skin, including sensitive skin types. Enriched with shea (5%) and marula oils, with nourishing and antioxidant properties, its 100% natural formula helps the skin to regenerate by strengthening its barrier function. Skin feels better protected, soft and supple. It glows with beauty. Use alone or combined with your usual moisturiser day and night. Warm a few drops of oil in the palm of your hands and apply onto the face, neck & décolleté. Evening application is particularly beneficial, as skin repair is most active during the night.”
L’Occitane 5% Shea Face Comforting Oil is packed in a see-through 30 ml glass (or at least very sturdy plastic) bottle with a pump and it all-together comes in a cardboard packaging. It costs 32,50 eur. The pump works well. I usually use one pump for face, one for neck and one for decolletage.
The texture of oil is somewhere between the real oil and dry oil, which in my books is a plus, because it sinks in faster than real oil and I prefer those over dry oils :). The scent is very nice – mildly floral and powdery. Like babies. Or baby cosmetics.
Oils are regular part of my evening routine, but I rarely use them during the day, because I feel like they really do the work over the night – recharge and feed your skin. My skin is normal to dry and prone to blemishes, which means I use oil every other day (in between I use a product that keeps my blemishes at bay). I’m really happy to say that this oil didn’t cause me any extra blemishes, which was my main concern when I start using new oils. It actually really helped with renewing the skin after drying them up. I woke up with nourished and plumped skin.
I really have no complaints about this product – I like everything, from scent, texture to effect and I think it’s worth trying out! Also, I’m really happy that I have a proper night time routine now and if you would like to hear more about it, I’d be happy to write a post. Let me know!
