L’Occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil Review

L'Occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil

Dry skin girls and guys rejoice! L’Occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil ($22) has arrived and contains a whooping 5% shea oil that keeps your skin moist and pleasantly hydrated while removing all your makeup (even waterproof mascara) easily.

I have dry skin and lately I haven’t been able to use certain oil cleansers as they seem to be drying my skin out terribly so I’ve resorted to removing my makeup with cream based cleansers. Recently, L’Occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil passed across my desk and I was ever so delighted I could start using oil cleanser again without the fear of too tight skin!

Buy One for Friend, Keep One for Yourself Holiday Gift Sets

friend holiday gift ideas

Ok, ok, I admit it I’m a buy one for a friend, buy one for me kinda gift giver! I’m particularly guilty of this when I shop for my sister. Typically I’ll sit down at my computer late Thanksgiving night and I do all my shopping for my sister online in one go. I seem to always get into trouble during this time as there are so many sales and cute items and I end up purchasing gifts not only for her but one for me as well.

So yeah, I have that buy one for her, buy one for me gift mentality.

This can prove a good thing though with so many Holiday Gift Sets on QVC that can be broken down into two gifts or even sometimes three or four! This can save a good deal of money as for $20 to $50 you get three or four gifts out of one item!

So here’s my list of great Buy One for Friend, Keep One for Yourself Holiday Gift Sets!

L’Occitane en Provence Divine Lotion Review

L'Occitane en Provence Divine Lotion

L’Occitane en Provence Divine Lotion is skin softening toner that I’ve been using several months now. I really enjoy the L’Occitane en Provence Divine Skincare Collection but actually use the lotion more than anything else from the collection.

Skin softening lotions (essences) or as we label them here in the US “toners” are getting some recognition lately. I suspect by Spring 2015 you’ll see a little bit of a trend for them. Essence is a common part of Asian skincare and one of the first steps in skincare application. Skin softening lotions like L’Occitane en Provence Divine Lotion is just one product in a long line of others that a typical Asian woman or man would use in their daily regime. Typically skincare regimes in Asia are made up of 5 to 8 daily products. Imagine that? I’ve adapted my own nighty skincare after this regime myself as I spend a lot of time around Japanese and Korean skincare and makeup. It seems overkill yes but actually my drier skin quite loves it.
