Review: L'occitane Fresh Face Water

L'occitane Fresh Face Water 200ml MYR 82

It seems that I have an awful lot L'occitane products, do I? In the beginning, I was a fan but started to fade off when the prices started to get increasingly pricey. That said, however, I would always go back, just to get my replenishment of my all time favourite item, which is their Shea Butter Fresh Face Water ( or known as Shea Butter Extra Gentle Cleansing Water ).

My Experience

I am currently enjoying wearing makeup again after being au natural for a few years. My makeup is pretty simple: just using my tinted sunscreen as my base, topped up with face powders, some eyeshadows, eyeliner and mascara for my eyes and finished off with a healthy blush. Because my makeup is not heavy, this cleansing water is just nice to remove my makeup rather thoroughly. 

What I usually do in my daily routine is squirting a sufficient amount of the cleansing water unto my cotton pads, place it on my eye area and gently massage it. I would then proceed to gently wipe my entire face with a fresh cotton pad, soaked with the cleansing water. I would usually repeat 2-3 times until there is no trace of makeup on the cotton pads. After that, I would double cleanse with my milk cleanser and gel cleanser.

Now, the whole routine above may sound like I am over cleansing. Personally, I find that it is not. My face does not feel dry or 'scratched' at all. I also find that using good quality cotton pads is vital so that your skin is handled as gently as possible.


There may be lots of makeup removers out there but I usually choose those that are non-oily and alcohol free. That is why this cleansing water fits the bill perfectly ( except for the price ). I can't really remember which year that I first started using this but I remember that now, I am already at my 4th bottle! Now, that really speaks of how much that I like this product. What I really love about this is that not only it is great for removing makeup rather thoroughly, it is also moisturizing, which doesn't make my skin feel taut or harsh. 

This item was purchased by me for my personal purposes. This review is based on my honest and personal experience with this product and is not influenced by any parties.


  1. I have not used any of L'occitane productss. I use Kose Sofymo cleansing oil which cleans good and it agrees with my pocket! :)

    1. Oooh...heard loads about Kose Sofymo but sadly, aren't available here in M'sia. Hmm, anyway, I tend to go for oil free ones. Some L'oocitane products are worth trying but it is indeed expensive..eek!

  2. The fact that it contains propylene glycol,parfum,methylparaben means its not 100% natural and may cause allergic reaction to those with very sensitive skin.
