Arrivals: New L’Occitane Shea Butter Comforting Skincare

1/15/2015



No matter how many intros to this post I can come up with, I simply cannot achieve to surprise any of you - my love towards L’Occitane is a well-known and a well-documented fact. You know the deal: my fave range is Almond. I was blown away by the Arlesienne collection (the collection of 2014. in my eyes), I love to venture into the Shea Butter and Immortelle territory and I’m head over heels in love with their Grasse fragrant treasures - Ambre & Santal being the latest love affair. One of the most well-known L’Occitane ranges must be the Shea Butter one as since the eighties this brand has been sending shea butter goodies our way. In fact, in 1980 L’Occitane was one of the very first cosmetic laboratories to develop a complete skincare range made with Shea Butter. Also, each L’Occitane Shea product bought helps women in Burkina Faso achieve economic emancipation through sustainable, fair trade practices. The range has now become one of their best sellers and even I succumbed to its charms (remember the luscious Shea Butter Fabulous Oil? - still desperately in love!). Shea Butter is a multi-talented ingredient able to take care of all skin types to cleanse, protect and moisturize. If some of you with oil/combo skins felt unsure if this shea butter thing would suit you - we have a new, lighter face cream and an entire army of silicone-free cleansers + they all have affordable price tags.

Bez obzira koliko uvoda za ovaj post smisljala, mislim da necu uspjeti nikoga iznenaditi - moja ljubav spram L’Occitane-a kao brenda je poznata i detaljno dokumentovana cinjenica. Vec znate rutinski: Badem je meni najdraza linija, Arlesienne kolekcija me odusevila (i dobila naslov najbolje kolekcije 2014. godine), volim zagaziti na teritoriju Imortelle i Karite puter linija a u potpunosti sam zaljubljena u Grasse mirisna blaga -Ambre & Santal je posljednje koje me naprosto odusevilo. Jedna od najbolje poznatih kolekcija ovog brenda mora biti karite puter (Shea Butter) jer jos od osamdesetih godina L’Occitane salje mazalice sa ovim sastojkom u nasem smjeru. Ustvari, jos od davne 1980. godine L'Occitane u svojim proizvodima upotrebljava karite puter iz Burkine Faso na temelju dugotrajne suradnje s ondasnjim proizvodjacicama, od kojih otkupljuje taj dragocjeni sastojak po principima pravedne trgovine. Ja, na primjer, nisam znala da je upravo L’Occitane bio jedna od pionirskih laboratorija koje su razvile cijelu liniju proizvoda sa karite puterom. Upravo ona je postala jedan od bestsellera brenda te sam cak i ja pala pod njene cari (sjecate li se Carobnog ulja sa karite puterom? - jos uvijek se volimo!). Radi se o multitalentovanom sastojku koji je sposoban da se brine o potrebama svih tipova koze od ciscenja, pruzanja zastite i hidratacije. Ukoliko se neko od vas sa mjesovitom kozom neckao oko toga da li bi ova linija vama odgovarala - sada u ponudi imamo svjeziju i laganiju kremu za lice i armiju cistaca koze i niti jedan od noviteta ne sadrzi silikone + ocekuje se da ove proizvode krase dosta povoljne cijene.



Shea Butter range was always a permanent range and all of these novelties will remain as permanent which, personally, makes me happy as I have a huntch a few at least could be amazing. What makes these new additions special is that they’re siliocone-free and they are lighter thus geared even towards combination complexions. Let’s start withe the cleasning division! Cleansing Oil (200 ml €20) is of a silky texture and enriched with 5% shea oil, leaves skin perfectly cleansed and fresh, with no oily residues. Without disrupting the skin’s moisture balance, it helps remove all impurities and makeup- even waterproof. You only need a small amount of the Cleansing Milk (200 ml €20) to cleanse skin perfectly and gently. Simply apply with the fingertips or a cotton pad. The smooth texture, enriched with shea, feels comfortable on the skin and leaves it soft and serene. If you wish to cleanse and tone - enriched with shea, the Gentle Toner (200ml €18) soon becomes indispensable to complete your cleansing routine. Free of impurities, skin feels clean, soft and fresh.

Karite puter linija je oduvijek bila stalna postava ali i noviteti koji sada budu predstavljeni ce takodjer ostati dio stalne ponude. Ova informacija me cini sretnom zato sto imam osjecaj da ce barem par novih proizvoda da me odusevi i imam visoka ocekivanja. Ono sto cini novitete posebnim jeste odsustvo silikona i niza koncentracija karite putera  od 5% zbog cega su formulacije njeznije i laganije te prikladnije cak i za mjesovitu kozu. Zapocnimo od tima cistaca! Ulje za ciscenje lica (200ml) je njezne, svilenkaste teksture, obogaceno sa uljem karitea, ostavlja kozu savrseno cistom i svjezom, bez masnih tragova. Bez narusavanja balansa hidratacije koze pomaze u otklanjanju svih necistoca i sminke – cak i vodotporne (ovu tvrdnju se radujem licno testirati!). Potrebna vam je samo mala kolicina Mlijeka za ciscenje lica (200ml) da bi savrseno i njezno ocistili kozu. Jednostavno nanesite mlijeko na lice vrhovima prstiju ili sa pamucnom blaznicom. Njezna tekstura, obogacena sa kariteom stvara osjecaj ugode na kozi koja je nakon koristenja njezna i mekana. Za ciscenje i toniranje imamo takodjer novitet. Obogacen kariteom, Njezni tonik za lice (200ml) nakon jako kratkog vremena postaje nezamjenljivi dio njege koze lica. Slobodna od necistoca, koza je cista, njezna i svjeza.



The very latest shea butter face cream is the little sister of the Ultra Rich Cream. This lighter version, ideal for normal or combination skin, provides essential hydration and protection. And when the skin longs for sheer textures and comfort, the Light Comforting Cream (50ml €32) can even take its big sister’s place. Now even normal and combination skin can enjoy the benefits of shea butter. (5% shea butter, 48hrs of hydration). Ultra Rich Comforting Cream (50ml €34) - this newly named, ultra-protective nourishing cream provides a response to the problems associated with dry and very dry skin – especially when extra care is needed due to climatic conditions. One of the secrets to the success of this formula is its absolute richness. As irresistibly smooth and famous as ever, it contains an exceptionally high concentration of shea butter (25%), yet sinks into the skin with an almost disconcerting ease. (25% shea butter, 72 hrs hydration). Made with 10% shea butter, this caring Lip Balm (12ml €10) helps to nourish, repair and protect the lips, leaving them soft, supple and comfortable. This new range will be available approximately from 15th January and I’m personally most interested in the cleansing division (oil, milk and toner) and the lighter comforting cream. Which one would you like to try first and what are your previous impressions regarding their shea butter range?

Nova krema za njegu koze lica je mala sestra Ultra bogate kreme za lice. Lagane teksture, idealna je za normalnu do kombinovanu kozu, pruza kozi osnovnu hidrataciju i zastitu. A kada koza cezne za njeznijom teksturom i ugodom, Ultra Njezna krema za lice (50ml)  moze zauzeti mjesto svoje velike sestre. Sada cak i normalna i kombinovana koza moze uzivati u djelotvornostima karite putera (5% karite putera za 48h hidratacije).  Sa novim imenom - Ultra Bogata krema za lice (50ml), ova posebno zastitna hranljiva krema pruza odgovor za sve probleme koji su povezani sa suhom i veoma suhom kozom – pogotovo u slucajevima kada je potrebna posebna njega zbog klimatskih uslova. Tajna velikog uspjeha ove kreme lezi u njenoj raskosi. Neodoljivo njezna i poznata kao nikad prije, sadrzi izuzetno visoku koncentraciju karite putera od 25% a opet se sa nevjerovatnom lakocom upija u kozu (25% karite putera za 72h hidratacije). Formulisan sa 10% karite putera, ovaj njegujuci Balzam  za usne (12ml) hrani, obnavlja i stiti usne, ostavljajuci ih mekanim, njeznim i ugodnim. Ova nova kolekcija bi trebala uskoro biti dostupna kod nas i cim saznam tacne cijene, obavijestiti cu vas. Licno me najvise intrigiraju proizvodi za ciscenje (ulje, mlijeko i tonik) dok me dosta zanima i ova laganija krema za lice jer sam cula da joj je tekstura fantasticna. Koji od noviteta bi zeljele vidjeti isprobane ili cete i same isprobati? Takodjer me zanimaju vasi utisci o karite puter proizvodima?
