I’m a super fan of oil cleansing, it keeps my skin radiant and helps control my oil. I was first introduced to it through Twitter then I saw a dozen blog posts about it. Everybody was talking about oil cleansing so of course I had to try it. I initially purchased an oil cleanser from an indie brand and it was great to use while I was just experimenting with the concept. Of course I was worried that using an oil to cleanse would make my skin so much oilier and it’d be a disaster. I experienced quite the opposite, my skin stop producing as much oil and the few blemishes I had literally disappeared. So whhen I ran out, I was anxious to find another oil cleanser to keep this routine going.
The Shea Cleansing Oil has a silky texture that helps to effectively remove impurities and makeup—even waterproof. Infused with five percent nourishing shea oil, this cleanser transforms into a soft emulsion when it comes into contact with water, helping to preserve the skin’s natural hydration. Great for all skin types, this oil leaves skin clean, comfortable, fresh, and radiant.
I’ve been using this oil cleanser for a little over a week now and can already see a difference in my skin. Oil cleansers really do work best for my combination skin. I start by taking one pump (it’s more than enough) and massaging the oil into my face. After a few minutes of massaging I add a little bit of water then rinse. When finished, my skin feels hydrated, not greasy, and I move on to the next steps in my routine (toner, serum, and moisturizer).
The L’Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil retails for $22 (USD) for 6.7 fl. oz. It is paraben and phathalates free so you don’t have to worry about putting harsh or unnatural chemicals on your face. What I really love about it, is that it also contains sunflower and baobab seed oil. Both of these oils are rich in anti-oxidants and aid in rejuvenating and repairing the skin.
