L'Occitane Shea Butter Skincare.

Being a beauty blogger, I naturally try out a lot of different products and brands, however, one that I've been loyal to for many years now, is L'Occitane. I first became familiar with L'Occitane as a young teen when my Mum introduced me to the Shea Butter Hand Cream (£19), which, fast forward quite some time, is still one of my all time favourites.

So, with that said, it'll probably come as no surprise that I'm also rather fond of the rest of the Shea collection. From the One Minute Hand Scrub (£15) to the luxe Foot Cream (£19), the quality is top-notch and regularly receives awards and recognition throughout the media. The brand have just last month launched two new additions to the skincare side of things, so if you want to know my thoughts, keep on readin'...

Shea Face Comforting Oil* (£29)
If you're a regular reader of my blog then you'll already know of my love for facial oils. I must have about five in my collection now, but there's just something so luxurious about applying one on an evening pre-slumber. This particular oil is pretty special for a number of reasons. Boasting a dry finish, it's actually light enough to use after a morning cleanse without any concern over looking excessively shiny. Oils + makeup are a combination normally best avoided, the fine consistency means sliding is avoided and dry skin stays nourished. Enriched with shea (5%) and marula oils, the 100% natural formula is designed to rejuvenate and strengthen the skins barrier, leaving it soft, protected and even.

Dryness and sensitivity are my two main issues with my skin, and since using this twice a day, pretty much every day (when combined with the Shea Face Soothing Fluid* mentioned below) I've noticed a total transformation in both hydration levels and redness. Essentially, it's magic in a bottle.

Shea Face Soothing Fluid* (£32)
You may have seen this mentioned in my 'January Favourites' post on Tuesday, and for a good reason. Though it is indeed a luxury purchase, you're certainly getting your money's worth, as not only is the overall quality of the lotion exceptional, but you need only the smallest amount per use. With its familiar, shea butter fragrance, I find this to be a total pleasure to apply, which is something I feel is an important part of a skincare regime (I can never really seem to fully warm to a product with a scent I'm not keen on). It bares the same qualities as the serum in that it hydrates and soothes thanks to 5% shea, rosehip and calendula, whilst providing the perfect canvas for makeup. The bottle is also worth a mention, too. Obviously, like all L'Occitane products, it's very aesthetically pleasing, but also incredibly practical. Instead of a typical lid, the pump is twist activated meaning you're less likely to have a leak in your travel bag. Awesome. All in all it's a great skincare addition and one I will definitely be purchasing once I run out.

Are you a fan of L'Occitane and the Shea Butter range? Will you be trying out either of the above? I'd also love to know your recommendations from the brand!
