Today I’d like to share with you my thoughts on the newly launched L’Occitane en Provence Shea Butter Cleansing Oil;

What They Say:
Discover a new way to cleanser your skin with shea oil. This silky texture, enriched with shea oil, leaves skin perfectly cleansed and fresh, with no oily residue. Without disrupting the skin’s moisture balance, it helps to remove all impurities and makeup – even waterproof.

RRP: $35 (200ml) – Available from L’Occitane

What I Say:
With combination skin prone to breakouts I have not always thought that cleansing oils were ideal for my skin. How very wrong I was. And during winter, my skin does tend to become a little drier, so even I need to step up the moisture levels. The new cleansing oil from L’Occitane contains 5% shea oil that helps keep your skin soft and hydrated while removing all makeup. The cleansing oil does naturally feel oily on the skin at first, but once rinsed off it doesn’t leave behind any oily residue at all, nor does it dry out the skin and leave it feeling tight.

To use, I pump a couple of pumps of the oil into my hand and massage it onto my face to loosen up makeup, dirt and grime, before adding a little water to emulsify and make it turn milky, massaging for a further minute or so before finally rinsing my face. And my skin is left incredibly soft and smooth, and every last bit of makeup removed, even my otherwise longwearing waterproof mascara, and that without any rubbing or pulling at the sensitive eye area. And all with just one cleanse – although I always like to double cleanse, following with a ‘treatment’ cleanser.
The cleansing oil has a nice consistency that is neither too thick or too runny, and it has a lovely and powdery shea butter fragrance, that is so soft and delicate that you can only love it.

The L’Occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil comes in a tall see-through pump bottle that is easy to use. As well as the shea butter, it also contains sunflower seed oil, baobab seed oil and vitamin E, to help care for the skin.
Overall this is a really lovely cleansing oil, and I love how quick it is to use and how easily it removes all my makeup, so if you like cleansing oils, I highly recommend that you check out this new Shea Butter one from L’Occitane, even if you’ve got dry skin, you won’t be disappointed.
