The Nicest Cleansing Oil I’ve Used In A While!

4/10/2015



The title says it all really - I'm beyond impressed by this cleansing oil and will keep it in my skincare routine as a staple. But let's go back a a little just to elaborate on why I feel this way. L'Occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil (200ml for $22) was a part of the new comforting Shea Butter range I wrote about in January. The classic range has been revamped with some great new additions (light oil-free moisturizers and silicone-free clesansers) and even though you're all well introduced to my love of L'Occitane I truly had no idea I'd love this product so much! My cleanser of choice for more than seven months os the well loved Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel - the bottle still hasn't run out but I have no idea when it will as it's completely white. I've been contemplating a repurchase when this nifty cleansing oil stepped it. Now, I'm sure I'll make that Oskia repurchase in the future as that's the best cleansing balm/gel I've ever tried but it got this best buddy right at the top of my skincare favorites. This shea cleansing oil is by far the best and most easiest one to use out of all (and I've tried tons!).  L'Occitane Shea Butter Cleansing Oil comes packaged in a tall and sturdy plastic bottle which tricked me for glass from a far. Design is minimal and clean which I like and prefer regarding my cleansing products. I was worried about the pump - will it squirt the oil all over the place? Luckily it's rather reliable. This oil is of a pale golden color, is enriched with shea oil (%5) but if you look at the ingredients list you'll see that the sunflower oil is the first ingredient. I like that the ingredients list is short and sweet, that it's free from silicones and that fragrance is at the bottom of the ingredients list. 

Naslov govori sve zaista - vise sam nego impresionirana ovim uljem za ciscenje lica i zadrzati cu ga u okviru njege lica kao jedan od HG proizvoda. No, vratimo se malo unazad cisto kako bih obrazlozila zbog cega se ovako osjecam. L'Occitane Ulje za ciscenje lica sa karite buterom (200ml kosta 37KM) je najavljeno kao dio nove linije sa karite butterom ciji sam dolazak na nase trziste najavila u januaru ove godine. Ova klasicna linija proizvoda meni dragog L'Occitane brenda je tada obogacena novitetima u koje spadaju nemasne hidratantne kreme i cistaci koji ne sadrze silikone. Iako sam vec odavno upoznata kako sa brendom, tako i sa karite linijom jednostavno nisam mogla pretpostaviti do koje mjere ce mi se upravo ovo ulje dopasti. Najdrazi cistac lica koji dominira mojom preparativnom rutinom vec vise od sedam mjeseci(!) je proslavljeni Oskia Renaissance gel/balzam za ciscenje - cija jedna bocica mi traje svo ovo vrijeme uz svakodnevnu upotrebu! Jos uvijek ga nisam potrosila iako mislim da je pri kraju no ne mogu tacno procijeniti posto je neprozirna. Upravo zbog toga sam razmisljala o ponovnoj kupovini Oskia cistaca sto cu sigurno uskoro i uciniti no u medjuvremenu je uskocilo ovo ulje, odusevilo me i zasluzilo da stoji rame uz rame sa Oskia cistacem. Oba proizvoda kod mene uzivaju HG status a konkretno, L'Occitane ulje za ciscenje je najljepse ulje u ovu svrhu koje sam dosada isprobala (a vjerujte da sam isprobala mnogo). L'Occitane Ulje za ciscenje lica sa karite buterom je upakovano u usku, transparentu plasticnu bocicu koja me iz daljine zavarala da pomislim kako se radi o staklu (zaista je cvrsta). Dizajn je minimalisticni i 'cist' sto volim i preferiram kada su u pitanju proizvodi za ciscenje lica. Jedino sam se brinula da li ce pumpica biti pogodna no srecom dozira kontrolirani 'mlaz' ulja. Samo ulje je blijedo zlacane boje, obogaceno je sa %5 karite ulja no ukoliko pogledate listu sastojaka vidjeti cete da je prvi i osnovni sastojak suncokretovo ulje. Dopada mi se sto lista sastojaka nije komplikovana vec je pojednostavljena, nema prisustva silikona a parfem se nalazi na samom dnu.



That being said, this oil does have that soft powdery scent all products from the L'Occitane Shea range are known for. I really love this scent but it doesn't linger as after use and rinsing the product, it goes away. The way I use this oil is simples - I can and do sometimes use it in the morning but I prefer to use it at the end of the day as I really feel it's made for removing make-up. One pump is more than enough for removing make-up and grime from my entire face and I'm convinced that this bottle will last me for ages as one pump per use gives it an amazing value for money ratio. Used either on dry or wet full face of make-up, that one pump massaged between my palms and then massaged on my face is often the best part of every day ever since I've started using this oil! It's thick, luxurious and emollient (very substantial) and not wishy-washy (not dripping all over). I love the fact that it isn't runny and it dissolves every last speck of make-up, including waterproof mascara, within a minute of massaging it all in. Then I like to wet my hands with some water (cold or warm, works both ways) and the oil emulsifies while again I massage it with some water and finally - rinse it all off with just my hands or a little face cloth. It really acts as a neutral face cleansing oil as it doesn't dry it out (there's no tight feeling afterwards) nor does it coat the skin with a remaining film. It just leaves it clean, fresh, supple and comfortable. My T-zone doesn't get oily or shiny after use (it's quite balanced actually) and my dry cheeks and scaly patches never got disturbed (it helped the process of healing and balancing them too!). There really isn't a single bad word I can say about this cleansing oil and it isn't even pricy - it's actually very affordable compared to many, many other cleansing oils on the market and it's of a stellar performance. Regardless of your skin type I can honestly not recommend this cleansing oil enough!

Ono sto je karakteristicno kod ovog ulja je i njegov meki, puderasti miris koji krasi sve proizvode iz L'Occitane linije sa karite puderom. Meni se ovaj miris jako dopada no primjetan je a ako ste osjetljive na mirise i ovo vas brine - imajte na umu da nakon sto se ulje pomijesa sa vodom i ispere, miris nestaje sa koze. Upotreba ovog ulja zaista ne bi mogla biti jednostavnija - mogu ga i nekada ga zaista koristim ujutro no ipak vise volim ga da koristim na kraju dana jer mislim da je istinska svrha ovog ulja da uklanja make-up. Jedna pumpica je vise nego dovoljna da svu sminku i necistoce uklonim sa cijelog lica. Upravo zbog toga sto je jedna pumpica dovoljna po koristenju, uvjerena sam da ce mi bocica od 200ml trajati mjesecima sto cini ovaj uljani cistac dosta ekonomicnom kupovinom. Bez obzira da li ovo ulje koristila na suhom ili mokrom licu (znaci kada jos nosimo sminku), dovoljno je samo da jednu dozu rasporedim po cistim dlanovima i umasiram preko koze i sve te sminke. Vrlo cesto je upravo taj ritual ciscenja navecer najljepsi dio dana u kojem uzivam jer tekstura ulja je fantasticna. Dosta je gusto, luksuzno, mazivo i omeksavajuce (ostavlja dojam kvalitetnog ulja) i nije vodenasto sto znaci da nece kapati posvuda sa lica. Odlicno razgradjuje sminku - ukljucujuci i vodootpornu maskaru - nakon manje od minute masiranja ulja u trepavice i ostatak lica. Potom cu preci jednom rukom pod mlazom (tople ili hladne) vode, preci preko rastvorene sminke i ulja sto stvara mlijecnu emulziju i na kraju sve isprati vodom (samo rukama ili uz pomoc zasebnog peskirica za lice). Prednost ovog ulja za ciscenje je sto se doista ponasa kao univerzalno, nenapadno i neutralno sredstvo za ciscenje koze - nije isusujuce (nema osjecaja zatezanja) ali nece je ni obloziti nekim zastitnim slojem poslije upotrebe. Rezultat koristenja je cista, svjeza i podatna koza. Moja T-zona se ne zasjaji vec je balansirana a i suhi obrazi te perutavi dijelovi lica nisu iziritirani. Cak mislim  da je ovo ulje pomoglo u njihovom saniranju. Ne postoji nista lose sto bih mogla reci o ovom ulju a cak nije ni skupo - posebno ako usporedite cijenu sa ostalim uljima za ciscenje lica na trzistu. Pristupacne je cijene a radi se o proizvodu vrhunskog kvaliteta! Ima moju toplu preporuku.
