L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Creme ReviewFebruary 19, 2015
Every now and then, I get a new product to review in one of those monthly boxes that makes me go ga-ga. Today, I got to review L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Creme via the Influenster Refresh Vox Box. Until today I had never heard of L'Occitane, so I had to do some research on the product and brand.
L'Occitane is a French based company that has been "committed to a fair-trade partnership since the 1980s with the women of Burkina Faso, West Africa, who make shea butter." Their partnership helps empower over 15,000 women in one of the poorest countries in the world.
The L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Creme is very light, silky and creamy. I really like that, compared to other moisturizers, it leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated and smooth. I use it after my morning routine because I love the way my foundation glides across it and it provides a very nice barrier. It is suggested that you apply it morning and evening, but I prefer my current night cream (not because L'Occitane doesn't work, but because I'm a creature of habit. When it comes to my skin, if it works, I don't change it until it doesn't).
The L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Creme is currently being sold at $28 for 1.7 fl.oz. Personally,
as the cheapskate that I am, I thought the price was a little hefty, until I went to my local Target and found that comparable drugstore brand were asking a similar price. I did find myself a tad offended, because their's didn't even have shea butter (or any other featured) natural ingredient. I also like that L'Occitane offers free shipping when you sign up for auto delivery and you get a choice between 1-6 months! Talk about convenience.
To me, and the cheapskate that lives within, it's worth the money because my skin has never felt so soft and a little goes a long way. All-in-all I give the L'Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Creme 4.5/5 kisses of approval.
