L'Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil, Light + Ultra Rich Comforting Creams | Review

L'Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil Light Ultra Rich Comfort Cream Review Photos

With the weather starting to shift around here, I've been really proactive about changing up my skincare routine to accommodate for spells of dryness that are less common during those hotter, more humid summer months. I've recently been testing out L'Occitane's Shea range as a dry skin solution, and I've been really happy with the results!

L'Occitane's Shea Cleansing Oil ($24 for 6.7 oz.) is the first product in the lineup. I am a huge lover of cleansing oils (being half Japanese, we have had access to cleansing oils long before they hit the U.S. market :), and L'Occitane's is fantastic. One pump is all you need to massage into the face and remove all traces of impurities and makeup, and it is soluble in water, which means that the cleansing oil, makeup, dirt and impurities will wash away without having to use any extra soap. You can always double cleanse if you want, but I find that the Shea Cleansing Oil does exactly what it's supposed to do all on its own. The best part is that you're adding a little extra boost of hydration to your skin during the cleansing process, and any extra hydration is a plus in my opinion once the weather starts to get dry!

Next up (below), is the Ultra Rich Comforting Cream ($34 for 1.7 oz.), which contains 25% Shea butter. Whoa. This is the ultimate, super rich, deliciously thick treat for dry skin....

This stuff is so so thick, you really only need a pea sized or slightly larger dot to cover your entire face. I love using this as an overnight treatment to really flood my skin with hydration and knock away any dryness that's been pestering me. As many of you know, I have extremely oily skin, and about two weeks of every month I have hormone related acne breakouts. I love that the Ultra Rich Comforting Cream does not break me out at all, even when I'm in my bouts of acne. The same cannot be said for many other much more expensive creams, so this is a really great find in my book.

Finally, the Light Comforting Cream ($29 for 1.7 oz.) with 5% Shea butter is a fantastic daytime, every day hydration solution. It has a light texture that absorbs easily into the skin but that still feels deeply moisturizing, and it works seamlessly with other products in my skincare routine.

Best of all, it leaves skin primed and ready to go for makeup application, which I really appreciate. I never experience any kind of balling up or "catching" on any makeup pigments when I've used the Light Comforting Cream. And again, I have also not experienced any breakouts from using it, which is my first concern with any new product I introduce into my routine.

Overall, I have been incredibly happy with how L'Occitane's Shea Cleansing Oil and Light and Ultra Rich Comforting Creams have performed for my skin. And given their price points, I feel like they are a complete steal! Whether you're just a dry-skinned person, or you're looking for a product or two to integrate into your routine to deal with seasonal dryness that comes with fall and winter, I highly recommend checking out any or all of these products. They are great basics that will be workhorses in your skincare routine, and by the time that cold, blustery weather rolls in, you'll be very glad to have them in your arsenal!
