L'Occitane Soothing and Comforting Ritual (Travel Set)


L'Occitane Travel Sets are a great way to see if you like any of the minis enough to buy a full size. 
Because you know, full sizes are not exactly inexpensive.

I purchased this set back at the end of January, when I was celebrating my birthday.

Vanity pouch includes:
Shea Face Comforting Oil, 4 ml
Shea Light Comforting Cream, 8 ml
Shea Cleansing Oil, 30 ml
Shea Gentle Toner, 30 ml
*Shea Vanilla Bouquet Hand Cream, 10 ml


I don't have the hand cream anymore since I gave it away the same day. I mean, I know that I like it and I have several of them already. So why not give it away to someone who will love it too?

The set comes at a price of 17€, but I had a bunch of cupons and paid about 14€ for it. I mean, it's great having a birthday in January when there's a lot of sales going on ;).


Let's talk about the pouch. How cute it is? A lovely knitted pouch (on both sides) with a pink strip. Super lovely and looks so wintery and comfy and pretty. Way too pretty. It has to be the prettiest pouch out there!

I tried the full regime and here's what I think:

Shea Cleansing Oil, 30 ml
I was the most excited about it, but truth to be told, it does dry out a bit my skin. After use my skin feels a bit tight and unhappy. Too bad, because I love using oils to remove makeup (like pure coconut oil/butter is the best).

Shea Gentle Toner, 30 ml
A nice smelling toner that refreshes my skin. I used it only in combination with all the products from this pouch. I like it a lot, but it's not anything too special. Except the design of the packaging. Lovely. So fresh and classy!

Shea Face Comforting Oil, 4 ml
Oh boy. Where do I start? Look at how small it is? How cute! And the effect it has on my skin... Oh!
My skin feels happy, nourished but not too much (combination skin wich is on the dry/normal side during colder months). It sinks quickly into the skin and it's one of the two products that I considered repurchasing. The fullsize is 32,50€/30 ml. Boooho. But lets say it would probably last a couple of months.. 

Shea Light Comforting Cream, 8 ml
I wasn't exactly sure if I wanted to use this product. Why? Because normally shea butter gives me cystic acne. Yes it does. But it seems that 5% is the right ammount that I get no such side effects. In fact, my skin feels moisturized after use. The cream sinks in quickly (even when doing the full regime) and I don't wake up the next morning with an oily layer over my face. Win! I may repurchase the full size in the future (28,50€/50ml), but for now I still have the mini to use up. And of course the samples included.

I am very happy with the purchase of this "vanity pouch" and I am curious about hearing your thoughts about it.

  1. Oh škoda, ker ti čistilno olje ne ustreza, jst sem ga pa tako vzljubila, res trkam na les, da miustreza. Jokala bi, čemi ne bi, ker dat zanj 21 eur je velik. Se pa strinjam za tonik, ko sem napisala objavo o njem sem tut napisala, da ni nič posebnega in da so tut čist poceni toniki isto dobri. Tk da olje bi kupila ponovno, tonika pa niti ne. Olje, pa ja sej še ena ko jo je zmešal:).jst bi ga tudi imela, ampak zj mogoče ne, na jesen pa:). Kremica za obraz je pa meni odlična in tista s 5% in 25% kariteja. Lep setek je, sploh za tiste, ki se prvič srečajo z karite linijo:).

    1. Oh ja, toner ni res nič posebnega. Sem ga zjutraj uporabila in pozabila, da sem ga.. hihih. Ojoj! :P
      Olje pa.. oh ja!
      Ma meni pa (glede čistilnega olja) mi zadnje čase (mrzli časi you know) večino izdelkov izsuši kožo. Sedaj imam ob Balee izdelek iz Adventnega koledarja in mi odgovarja. Tako da ja.. :) Lušten setek!

    1. Yes, of course. Just clean them well before. I am thinking about reusing the toner packaging. It's the perfect size and the pump works really well.
