I got this product in my last British Beauty Blogger beauty box here, I didn’t overly take a huge notice of it and just added it to my skincare stash. I have never used anything from L’Occitane apart from their hand cream. But I recently was stuck for a mini face cleanser to bring with me to the gym and grabbed this from my stash and threw it in the gym bag.
The first thing that hits you when you use this is the smell. I just used it in the shower and poured it into my hand and the smell is quite overwhelming. It’s a hard to describe smell it kinda smells like grass or a herby kind of smell. It’s not offensive, it’s just unusual but it does smell fresh. The cleanser contains Angelica essential oil, Angelica is a herb apparently so that explains the herby smell!
I wasn’t really expecting too much from this, mainly because I have dry skin and I usually expect this kind of liquid cleansers to be drying. But I think this stuff is great! It managed to take all the traces of makeup from my face but it doesn’t dry it out one little bit. In fact I think it adds moisture to my skin. It’s perfect for getting that real clean face feeling without the dryness.
My size was a mini but you can pick the full size of this up from L’Occitane for €20. I highly recommend if you have dry slightly sensitive skin like moi.
