L’occitane Ultra Gentle Moisturizer Review



L’occitane Ultra Gentle Moisturizer

Hi girls,

How much we love our face creams, dry skin is always a pain and this being the holiday season, traveling is an essential part. I am heading for sunny beaches of Portugal, I need some travel size tubes and lots of sunscreen. I visited my favorite store in the town, L’occitane.

I love how inviting the store looks. The store serves jasmine tea as you enter and they have small dark chocolates to be picked up, it is luxury 😉 to even visit the store. Today, I will today review the L’occitane Ultra Gentle Moisturizer.


Ultra Gentle Moisturizer Loccitane


Price: £12 for set of 2 tubes 15 ml each.

About L’occitane Ultra Gentle Moisturizer:

L’Occitane Shea Butter Ultra Gentle Moisturizer is specially formulated to strengthen and protect sensitive and normal to dry skin.

This ultra-gentle, hypoallergenic, fragrance-free moisturizer provides:

– Unrivalled comfort, from a formula enriched with shea butter (8%). Skin is nourished, supple and comfortable.
– Ultra-gentle care, thanks to the calming and soothing action of liquorice extract and alpha bisabolol extracted from candeia oil. Redness is reduced and skin is soothed and relieved.
– Double protection against dryness and harsh conditions, thanks to protecting shea concentrate and skin fortifying prebiotics (natural sugars derived from wheat and beetroot). This beauty care helps to stimulate skin’s natural defences for visibly better protected skin.

My take on L’occitane Ultra Gentle Moisturizer:

I am getting dry patches on my skin, blame the cold weather and my warm baths, I just find it hard to avoid the warm baths. I really like slathering up some moisturizer and letting it work. L’occitane has some real good products, and I have its fragrances, shampoos and conditioner treatment masks. I love the look of their products. It spells luxury and good quality.

The moisturizer is really non-oily and does not make my face look like a shiny disco ball :p If you are looking for something post shower to generally make your skin healthier, this is definitely a good thing. It has no other benefit, just that if you have sensitive skin, it wont harm you and keep those winter bays away.
