Winter Skin Essentials – L’Occitane Shea Butter Collection

February 6, 2016

The Winter season in Toronto this year really isn’t all that bad, well if you compare it to the previous two years of -40 degree weather, frozen trees, and consecutive blackouts across the city, it is indeed pretty mild. I really hope I did not just jinx it. But winter is winter, and during these cold months, my face is CONSTANTLY dry. I have had many failed attempts for my winter skin essentials until I FINALLY came across the L’Occitane Shea Butter Collection.

My remedy is simple, easy, and trust me, IT WORKS! I have tested out plenty of products but this range really does wonders!

L’Occitane’s Shea Face Comforting Oil is perfect for dry skin. I know what you might be thinking… oil? That’s kinda cray cray, but trust me, it absorbs abnormally fast and leaves your skin supple and hydrated. Come touch my face if you think it leaves my face oily. I dare you.

BUT here’s the thing, this alone really does not do it 100% for me. Which led me to experimenting with L’Occitane’s Ultra Rich Comforting Cream.

I first apply two pumps of the oil on my face and then use the cream on top of it. THAT is my secret to moisturized skin in the winter. This tag team effort does wonders for my skin, and to my surprise, people DO notice and comment on how my skin looks (oh stop it you!).

I do this at night, because this routine might be a bit too much for me in the morning. Besides our skin absorbs and repairs itself best at night anyway.

In the morning I apply L’Occitane’s Shea Soothing Face Fluid, a light moisturizer perfect for dry patches on your skin. Great for people with sensitive skin as it helps with drying, skin stress, and pollution (yeah, pollution does affect your skin!).
