Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - L'Occitane Ultra Moisturing Body Cream
sedateme 2/17/2012 8:08:00 AM
If your skin is very dry and easily irritated, this is a great choice for you. I have extremely dry skin with flakes and it gets even worse after shaving. Most creams irritate my skin even more when I use them after shaving but this one is really lovely. I also used it when I had sunburn, I kept the cream in the fridge and it was really comforting. The texture is very rich so I don't recommend this to anyone who hates thick creams (you may like the shea butter lotion from L'Occitane more). The smell is clean and powdery, typical for shea butter products. This is a product that I repurchase over and over because I use it every day.
This is a great product especially when your skin is dry and sensitive but you don't like using rich creams. This serum is light but really moisturizing and perfect under make-up. Sometimes I use it alone and sometimes in combination with L'Occitane Ultra Rich Cream. My boyfriend loved this product too.
Gels/Soaps -L'Occitane - Amande Cleansing and Soothing Shower Oil
sedateme 2/16/2012 4:38:00 PM
This is a perfect choice for anyone with dry skin. The smell is beautiful but it may be too much for some people, so I can't recommend buying this product online without trying it before. Also great to use instead of shaving foam. I used to work at L'Occitane store and this was definitely one of the most popular products (also used by men). This is my personal no 1 shower product.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 100% Pure Shea Butter
sedateme 2/16/2012 4:32:00 PM
This is a must have for anyone struggling with extremely dry lips or any dry areas on your face or body. I repurchased this product so many times because it is so pure and works really well. I also use this to soften my messy eyebrows or dry ends, but there are much more ways how you can use this product. As a former sale assistant at L'Occitane store I can also recommend this product to people with eczema and allergies, of course it won't cure your allergy, but it can help reduce the symptoms.
This is the perfect scrub for you if your skin is dry or sensitive. Most scrubs I tried either irritated my skin or didn't work at all. This product is very rich and moisturizing and works very well without drying your skin or irritating it. The richest and creamiest scrub I have ever tried.
Treatments -L'Occitane - Divine Extract (Extrait Divin)
sedateme 2/16/2012 4:18:00 PM
I didn't expect much from this product to be honest, because my skin is very dry and sensitive and I usually use L'Occitane Ultra Rich Cream because nothing else is enough for my skin. I was really surprised by this product and its effects were visible very quickly. My skin became much brighter and it didn't look so tired anymore. Sometimes I used this product alone and other times I combined it with my ultra rich cream. It works great as a make-up base. Although, as a former sale assistant at L'Occitane store I recommend using a few samples of this product before buying it, as some customers experienced skin irritation after using this extract (or other products that contained imortelle).
Conditioner -L'Occitane - Shea Butter - Ultra Rich Conditioner
sedateme 2/16/2012 4:04:00 PM
This product really surprised me. I didn't want to use it for such a long time because I thought it would be too creamy and make my fine hair look greasy. But it turned out to be one of the best conditioners I've ever used, surprisingly easy to rinse off without leaving your hair greasy like many other ultra rich conditioners. I recommend leaving this product in your hair for a few minutes, you will be surprised by its effect. I also recommend using this product only on your ends or down from the area where your ponytail starts, if your hair isn't especially dry and damaged.
Cleansers -L'Occitane - Immortelle Brightening Cleansing Foam
sedateme 2/16/2012 3:53:00 PM
I love this foam and I have nothing negative to say about it, but I have to say that I also tried Olive Tree Organic Cleansing Foam by L'Occitane and that one was even better. I used to work for L'Occitane and me and my colleagues all agreed that this product is great but the olive foam is even softer and more brightening, definitely better for dry and sensitive skin. But if you're not a fan of olive smell this may be a better choice for you. Some customers with extra sensitive skin said that L'Occitane products containing imortelle irritated their skin.
Moisturizers -L'Occitane - 24 Hours Ultra Rich Face Cream
sedateme 2/16/2012 3:43:00 PM
This is one of my all time favorite products and one of a few products that can really help my extremely dry skin. The texture is very rich and so comforting for dry or irritated skin. The smell is clean and soft, typical for shea butter products. I use it every day but my skin is really dry with flakes and using this product as a day cream may be too much for you if your skin is not so dry. In that case I would recommend using this only as a night cream or using it occasionally when your skin is extra dry or irritated (it's great for sunburn or in freezing weather). I don't think buying this product can be a mistake because even if you won't use it every day, this is one of the products that will be useful at least once in a while.
Skincare - Body -L'Occitane - Almond Supple Skin Oil
sedateme 2/16/2012 3:25:00 PM
This is one of the most luxurious products I have ever tried. I have to say I hate oils, but this one is different than all the other ones I've tried. It absorbs really quickly for oil and it leaves your skin beautifully glowy but not greasy. I would especially recommend this to people with extremely dry skin. My skin is very sensitive and this is only product that I can use after shaving without any irritation and it actually helps reduce the itching after shaving. I used to work for L'Occitane and this product was especially loved by pregnant women who used it as prevention against stretch marks. I love the smell of this product but it is not for everyone so I don't recommend buying this online if you've never tried it before. I also wouldn't recommend this to people who hate any kind of oily products, Almond Milk Concentrate by L'Occitane would be a better choice for you.
Lotions/ Creams -L'Occitane - 20% Shea Butter Hand Cream
sedateme 2/16/2012 11:35:00 AM
This is hands down the best rich hand cream I have ever tried and believe me, I have tried a lot of them! Works very well especially when you use it overnight with cosmetic gloves. The texture is amazing for dried hands and the smell is very soft and clean, typical for shea butter products. If you want to use it during the day and you don't like thick creams, this may not be the best choice for you, although it absorbs quickly. I also use it on my feet because it works better than L'Occitane foot cream. I always have one big tube at home and one in travel size in my cosmetic bag and I will definitely repurchase this product over and over.
This is one of the most beautiful lip colors I have ever seen. It reminds me of coagulated blood (which is probably not the most appealing comparison for everyone but it definitely is for me :) Depending on the way of application you can achieve different looks, if you apply a few coats with a brush you can achieve rich dark purple color as seen in the campaign pictures, but if you only use a bit of the product and apply it with your fingers you will get tinted cherry lips. The only negative is that this lipstick is quite drying which is normal for dark colored long lasting lipsticks and you can avoid it with using a rich lip balm. This color looks especially dramatic on girls with pale skin. It is definitely a must have for all for drama queens and rock chics :)
Lipstick -Estee Lauder - Pure Color Lipstick in 'Pinkberry'
sedateme 2/16/2012 11:07:00 AM
This is one of my most favorite make-up products ever. I am finishing my second Pinkberry lipstick and I am definitely buying another one. It is the perfect pinky nude color that you can wear with anything and apply anytime without a mirror because it is very natural and easy to use. It also works great as a lip conditioner because it is so creamy and rich. I believe this is one of the shades that go well with every skin tone and I can only recommend it to everyone.
