L'Occitane Shea Light Comforting Cream - 50ml - $30 - with a sheer, light formula perfect for my (normal to combination skin) containing 5% shea butter that offers 48hr hydration and protection - and super-score, it's not too rich or heavy for non-dry skin types!
And if you're the kind of person that likes to use a line's full range then there are great companion products to the Light Comforting Cream including the Cleansing Oil - 200ml - $26 - with a silky texture enriched with 5% shea oil that leaves skin perfectly cleansed, getting rid of impurities and even my waterproof mascara with no oily residue; and Gentle Toner - 200ml - $26 - complete the cleansing routine with a shea enriched toner that frees the skin of impurities - I love the fresh smell and the pump bottle which helps me not waste product!
All will be available this month as part of the permanent Shea range at L'Occitane boutiques across Canada and online at www.ca.loccitane.com.
