Everyone complains about dry skin in the winter. Irritated, flaky patches will pop up out of nowhere, and it's hard to keep under control. With the mix of staying hydrated through drinking water, wearing warm gloves and using gentle, conditioning products throughout the day, my skin is happy as can be.
Without a doubt, L'Occitane makes one of the most praised hand creams on the planet. Their original Shea Butter Hand Cream ($32 for 150ml) now has an even more nourishing counterpart, the Shea Butter Intensive Hand Balm ($40 for 150ml) to keep your nails and knuckles extra healthy.
The Shea Foaming Cleanser ($28 for 125ml) "perfects make-up removal and gently cleanses skin". I subscribe to the double-cleanse method: First I massage my makeup off using Caudalie oil, then I rinse my face clean with a warm cloth. I follow up with a foaming cleanser, usually paired with my Clinique cleansing brush (review).

|I even pop some of this Shea Balm on my heels and toes to keep my feet in tip-top shape.|
The textures of these new Shea products are divine. Rich, creamy, delicately fragranced and guaranteed to last longer than your average cleanser or hand balm. I'm amazed by how comfortable and clean this cleanser leaves my skin feeling, and I especially love the convenient tube packaging. The hand balm is also held in a chic, matte beige tube. I'll never get tired of how beautiful my L'Occitane products look on a bathroom shelf.
