Skincare: L'occitane Red Rice toner and Shea Butter Cleansing waterThursday, April 29, 2010
The weekend is getting closer!! What are you guys planning to do?
Today I come with another first impression thoughts about 2 Loccitane products. As I have mentioned before here and hereI've been little by little adding more products from this brand to my skin care routine.
I've been using their Red Rice Ultra matte moisturizer and cleanser with really good results.
I went this past weekend to pick up another cleanser since I ran out and I decided to finally give the Red Rice toner a try. I haven't been a fan of toners in the past because they would irritate my skin. I have used this one 2 days in a row, morning and night and so far no irritation or tingling!. After washing my face, I use the toner and then the moisturizer. My face feels clean and moisturized. No tightness, just the right amount of moisture that I need since I am combo/oily skin. I will be updating you guys for sure on how the toner is working for me. The toner was $4 at the outlet/travel size/ 1.7 oz
Purifying Rice TonerA super fresh bi-phase toner that provides a perfect matte finish! Recommended for combination and oily skin, the first phase of this toner purifies and the second phase mattifies, leaving skin fresh, perfectly clear and light!
Another product that called my attention was the Shea Butter cleansing water. I was using the Almond Pomme oil and it was working great to remove make up but since it is an oil and I have combo/oily skin I was not feeling comfortable using and I started to break out and I kind of blame the product! lol If you have normal to dry skin this will work best.
When I saw this one, the description of the product caught my eye and bought it. It was only $4 at the outlet/ travel size/ 3.4oz
I've used this product for the past 2 days also and I think it is going to be a keeper. Not greasy feeling at all! When you spray it on the face it feels cool on the skin therefore very resfreshing. What I did: I sprayed like 2-3 times a cotton pad and rub the pad all over my face and it removed all traces of make up: face, eyes, and lips! Now I have to see how long the bottle lasts to see if it is worth it. But I just loved how my face felt. I will also give you guys and update on this product later on.
Final thoughts? I really recommend this brand! It could be a bit pricey but if you have a Loccitane outlet close to you, the products are much less pricey than in their boutiques.
Shea Butter Extra-Gentle Cleansing Water (Travel Size)A unique multi-purpose product, the Extra Gentle Cleansing Water is appropriate for even the most sensitive skin. This non-greasy formula can be used as a gentle make-up remover, facial cleanser, facial toner and midday refresher. It will leave skin clean, nourished and moisturized.
Have a great day!!
