REVIEW ON L'OCCITANE EN PROVENCE SHEA FACE COMFORTING OIL

I admit that there was one dark time in my life that I was into oil free this, oil free that and everything must be oil free to avoid the skin from getting oilier.

I am the glad that I started using facial oil because it seriously made a lot of different in my skin. My first love of facial oil venture was actually all-in-one oil for scar which I applied on my face and the next thing I know, it was love at first sight and I love facial oil.  So, if you have oily skin, don't be afraid to look into facial oil that can help your skin.

If you are into organic brands, then do stay and have a read on my opinion on L’OCCITANE Shea Face Comforting Oil.  Their Shea line is one of the favourite line among customer =) .

Here is some details about the origin of the shea butter.

Women’s gold… a symbol of life
The shea (karite) tree is essential to West Africa, and in the local language, the name means “lifegiving”.
The butter produced from the nuts is used by women for cooking and protecting skin. Shea Butter is also known as “women’s gold” because it ensures a precious source of revenue for the women involved in its production. In Burkina Faso, local women are the only ones who know the secret to how the butter is made. They use the income they earn from Shea Butter to pay for household needs and also for the education of their children.



A tale of sustainability

In 1980, L’OCCITANE founder Olivier Baussan discovered the magic of Shea Butter during a trip to
Burkina Faso. Processed by hand, it had surprising effects on the skin of the women who handled it:
instead of damaging, it softened! Intrigued, he decided to develop a range of products based on Shea
Butter. The very first product, Shea Butter Hand Cream, was launched in 1994. Immediately, women
around the world fell in love with it.

Scientists at L’OCCITANE have discovered that Shea Butter is exceptionally rich in Omega-6 and karitene (a powerful moisturiser). Together, these ingredients nourish and protect the skin every day.

The bottle is made from solid heavy glass. The cap and pump is from plastic. It is recommended to use it within 6 months since organic products tend to have shorter life span but I think oil generally have longer life span.

The Shea Face comforting oil smells amazing of sweet floral scent.  The clear yellowish oil has a smooth and silky texture. It is not greasy or waxy on the skin.  The oily leaves a subtle sheen and feels light on the skin. My skin was really dry and patchy from the changes in weather, face allergy and stress somewhere in Jan and this help my skin condition to get through those tough time. L’occitane Shea Face Comforting Oil and other skincare products help to restore my ‘moisture barrier’ back in the normal level. It is especially useful to seal in the moisture after using a sheet mask =). Just pump a few drop of oil into the palm and pat it on the face. Wrap your face with your palm to help with the absorption.

Ingredients are 100% organic.  Still do look into the ingredients if everyone skin is different.

Overall, my skin seems to like this facial oil because of the comforting scent, light texture and the moisturising property that it provides. Not to mention that I like the elegant packaging XP .  It is like a bottle of gold.
