Winter is long and some days it is harsh. My skin is taking a toll with the flash of cold and dry heat when I am in and out of the house. When I am indoors all day, the dry heat just eliminates my skin moisture. In the evenings before I go to bed, I like to put on a very hydrating facial cream that would keep my skin hydrated all night long. These past few nights my skin can't get enough of L'Occitane Face Soothing Fluid.
The L'Occitane Face Soothing Fluid contains 5% of shea butter and it is the third ingredient on the list. If you have used L'Occitane products with shea butter before, it has a very distinct shea butter scent I have grown to notice over the years. It is a pleasant soothing scent I love.
My first impression was the cream has a light texture and didn't think it was hydrating enough. I was wrong. Even though it feels light, it feels like it has the same the hydrating properties as a thicker denser cream. It comes in a weird looking pump that I don't see very often. What I read is that this cool pump keeps the cream sterilized after every use. The packaging is slim and light weight so I could easily take it with me on my travels. I also love that it is free from preservatives so there is no extra unnecessary ingredient to put on my face. It absorbs fast and leaves a dry touch finish. When I wake up in the mornings, my face is still hydrated not itchy or irritated. It is great for sensitive skin.
If you have normal to very dry skin like my mom, try L'Occitane Face Comforting Oil. It comes in a pump and like the L'Occitane Face Soothing Fluid it contains 5% shea butter. This does not have the shea butter scent because I smell the sunflower seed oil instead. It is a bit too oily for my skin but I know my mom would love this. She always complains how dry her skin is. She complains after menopause, her skin feels permanently dry. This is the perfect for my mom's skin type.
