Treatments (Face) -L'Occitane -Divine Youth Oil

foto

I didn't think I would like this oil after trying so many I didn't like. I'm early 40's with oily (drier in Winter) acne prone skin. I have been looking for an oil to provide a bit of moisture, suppleness and help with skin tone.

I received a sample in the store and used it nightly for 2 weeks. I used it after cleansing and toning. I just put 3-4 drops in my hand and press it into my skin. My skin was oily at first, but the oil absorbed after a few minutes. I woke up to fresh, hydrated skin without extra oiliness! I also didn't break out from the oil, as many of my blemishes healed up.

I hated the price, but found it at skinstore.com with a 30% off code. It's a 1oz bottle, so should last a while. I've been using this oil for 2 months with great results. My skin is less oily, dewy and soft. My skin tone is clearer and texture smoother.

If you haven't had good luck with other oils, I recommend trying this one. I will say the scent is quite strong (floral / herbal), so if you are sensitive to scents you might not like. I actually love the smell, but I don't have any sensitivities.



Cleansers -L'Occitane -IMMORTELLE DIVINE Foaming Cleansing Cream

on 12/3/2018 9:35:00 PM

This pitches itself as a luxe foaming cleanser for all skin types. It is slightly slimy, very similar to Korean snail cleansers (esp the Missha brand in the gold packaging), decently foaming and easy wash away. It cleanses well for light makeup, however I don't really think its worth the price. It plays in the category of high end cleansers but don't think it quite delivers with the experience that Shiseido and omorovicza cleansers have provided me with. In fact, I prefer the Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam, the one in the blue pump, since it feels like it rinses cleaner and it slightly more reasonably priced. It took me a long time to finish since I didn't reach for it much and feel its better for dry-combo types who prefer a foaming cleanser. I enjoyed using this and can tell it has high quality ingredients however its just too expensive for what it is. If this was around $25 I would give it one more lippie. Pls try before you buy and try the one in the blue pump as well.

Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane -Shea Butter Foot Cream

foto

Metal tube packaging rant aside, this is actually a fairly good product. It doesn't do anything for my rough heels but for the top of my feet and ankles it does quite a good job moisturizing. It's emollient - sinks in quickly without being greasy, if there's anything I hate it's products that leave your feet slippery (not the best of ideas when most your house is tiled flooring).

The fragrance is inoffensive and smells mildly herbal, with a bit of Lavender thrown in, but have to remind myself the mark of a good product is never how good it smells but what it contains...in this instance shea butter - and lots of it! It's 2nd from the top of the ingredients list! Also coconut oil, a decent amount of Vitamin E and Lavender and Rosemary - both good for soothing and toning, useful after a day spent on your feet and you need to alleviate that 'heavy' feeling. As a basic foot cream it does the trick and moisturizes, however for getting rid of rough heels, I guess the hunt continues...

Moisturizers -L'Occitane -Shea Butter Ultra Rich Face Cream

This thick white cream spreads easily. It's rich but works just O.K. for my dry-very dry skin as a nighttime moisturizer. I use it over Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair serum. The first two ingredients are water and Shea butter. (It contains 25% Shea butter.)
It has a relatively short ingredient list. It doesn't seem to be quite moisturizing enough for my skin. In the morning my skin looks a little dry.

Gels/Soaps -L'Occitane -Amande Cleansing and Soothing Shower Oil

I love the scent of this l’Occitane range so much but I’m not completely wowed by this shower oil. I first used it on a sponge but the lather was non existent and I don’t feel my skin was cleansed. Reckon it was just absorbed into the centre of the sponge. Then I tried applying it directly to my skin, which sort of turned to a milky liquid and probably cleansed my skin ok. I’m really a sucker for lots of foam and bubbles. Lastly I used a bath puff and finally some lather and a feeling of decent cleansing with a lovely soft fragranced skin. Think I should have purchased the body oil instead of the shower oil. Not a bad product but not what I was expecting. I suppose shower oils aren’t for me!
