Daily Skincare Routine at Home

If you have been following me on my social medias, you know i love L’Occitane . So when i was asked for this campaign, there was no hesitations. It’s a dream come true !  Now that fall is already here, my skin tends to get dry and when I’m  applying  foundation on my skin it gets more drier and flaky. So a skincare infused with Shea butter is just perfect for my skin. Like what they said, a good skin makes your make up look good. It’s not the other way around. So it’s really important to invest on our skin.

So today, i’m going to take you on how i get ready using L’Occitane Shea butter skincare.

When i wake up in the morning, the first thing i always do is to wash my face. It makes me feel refreshed and the sensation of water on my face kind of wake me up, a little bit.

Then I wash my face with the L’Occitane Shea butter cleansing oil. I put a few pumps of cleansing oil on the palm of my hand. Massage oil onto face. Add water to transform the oil into a milky lotion then rinse off with water. Pat to dry.

After my face is cleansed, i apply some moisturizer. I usually use the L’Occitane Shea Light Comforting Cream for the day. I love that it is light but also help in nourishing the skin. It is infused with five percent shea butter and rich in Vitamin E, omega 6 and karitene. This is advisable to people who have normal to combination skin just like me. It is also suitable for sensitive skin because it is formulated without Paraben and Phthalates.

I love my daytime moisturizer to have that light texture because it sinks in the skin right away . Make up application is easier and it doesn’t feel greasy at all.

For nighttime, I use the L’Occitane Ultra Rich Cream. I like my face to be extra moisturized at night. This is perfect because they put high concentration of Shea butter. Even if it’s highly concentrated, it doesn’t feel greasy at all because the rich texture sinks quickly into the skin to leave it soft and comfortable without any greasy residue. I highly recommend this for dry to very dry skin. It would totally hydrate your skin up to 72 hours.

Especially now that i’m in my thirties, my skin is not what it used to be. So i take care of it more now by choosing the right products and also changing to  a healthy lifestyle by eating right , drinking lots of water and getting enough sleep. The lack of sleep is the one that totally gets me and something that i really need to work on. So it’s really good to invest in yourself whether a skincare routine or a personal goal. What you put in is obviously what it shows in the long run.

Thank you so much for reading and have a great day!

    Thank you for this great post, April! It only recently started getting chilly here in NYC, and I’m noticing my skin is already drying out, so I’ve been on the hunt for the right moisturizer. Which would you recommend for dry skin? For day-time use? Also, I love how you pointed out how much getting enough sleep, water, and eating right can really affect not only how you feel, but also how you look, including your skin. I’m also trying my best to keep up with all of that! Again, thanks for sharing. I enjoyed your post!

      Hi Jocelyn,
      I’m glad you like my post, that means so much to me 🙂 . My skin also gets dry during fall/winter season and I highly recommend the L’Occitane Shea Butter Skincare. I use the Shea Butter Cleansing oil morning and night as my cleanser. For moisturizer i use Shea butter Light Cream for daytime. For night time, i use the Shea Butter Ultra Rich Cream. Product links are on the post. I hope that’s helpful enough for you, let me know if you anymore questions.

      Thank you so much!

    Wow! I have never heard of L’Occitane…maybe I’ve been under a rock because it’s pretty legit! I have oily skin and I am always interested in finding a skincare product that doesn’t contribute to oilness and wears well with makeup. Thanks for the suggestions. Do they have products in their line that caters to oily skinned girls?

      Hi Chelsea,
      I highly recommend their Peony Collection for oily skin. For your cleanser try the Perfecting Purifying Foam product link here . I have tried their Perfecting Mattifying Fluid Mask product link here , it works wonders! You only need to put it on for 5 mins and your skin feel refreshed afterwards. I used this a lot during summer time coz my skin gets oily in the summer . Its just like a having a quick mini spa at home. I do it every other day and it smells so good.

      Thank you so much Chelsea and i’m glad to help you. Let me know if you have any questions.
