Reader Review -L’Occitane Ultra Rich Shower Cream

screenshot034.jpg

Thanks to Elaine M. for the tip! I am a huge shower cream addict and I can’t wait to give this a try.

I have just seen the post by Erin about a body lotion she is using while pregnant. I noticed her comments about dry itchy skin, and I’d like to recommend a product to her that helped me a lot when I was pregnant. I found that most shower creams and gels were too drying, or my skin had become sensitive to them, as my skin was very itchy and uncomfortable, even after using special maternity body creams, body butters and oil gels. I then discovered L’Occitane shea butter shower cream, which made a huge difference to me. They come in a variety of natural fragrances, but are quite subtle, which suited me as smells could really set off my morning sickness. I can never use some Dove products again simply because of the smell for that reason!

L’Occitane Ultra Rich Shower Cream

This delicate and generous shower cream gently cleanses body and hair while preserving their natural balance. Creamy texture and detergent-free formula, with high percentage of 5% of nourishing Shea Butter, natural coconut foaming base and soy proteins, leave skin soft and supple, and hair with high shine. In a squeeze bottle perfect for shower and travel.

New product review! L’Occitane Rice Foaming Cleanser.

loccitane_rice_foaming_cleanser.jpg

I’ve been broke forever, and haven’t been able to buy any new skincare products.  Usually I am sent more than enough products to keep my skin in tip-top shape, but I haven’t seen any in some time!  So I had to break down and go to Sephora and look for an inexpensive face wash.  I looked through the major brands, and they were all out of my price range.  I headed over to L’Occitane to get a sample of the hand lotion (something I do everytime I go to Sephora) and I noticed they had a foaming cleanser for only $18.00!  I grabbed it up, and headed over to face lotions (will review that one next).

What I love about this cleanser is how little you need for each wash.  It takes only one pump of cleanser to get enough foam to wash your whole face.  It foams up beautifully, and washes away any makeup.  I love it. I’ll probably use this again next time.  Being soap-free, it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin, and it has made my skin very happy.

Rice Foaming Cleanser by L’Occitane is a soap-free cleanser enriched with rice.

L’Occitane Rice Foaming Rice Cleanser
transforms into an ultra-light foam on contact with water and eliminates makeup, impurities, and excess oil. Skin is left perfectly clean, incredibly soft, clear, and pure.

The soap-free cleanser is enriched with rebalancing zinc and red rice extract from France, as well as astringent red rice vinegar.
