I've been looking for something to combat shine on my T-zone and I read some great reviews on L'Occitane's Riz/Rice line so I decided to check it out.
First of all, I have to comment that at the L'Occitane store, they give you a sample pack of the product you are purchasing so you can test it out without opening up the full size bottle in case you don't like it. How great is that!!
The first thing I noticed about this product is that it is lightweight and has a velvety texture. It spreads well so I only need to use one pump each time. Immediately my skin felt smooth and mattified. Before using this product, I would constantly be using blotting papers or powder throughout the day to combat shine, but I swear I barely need to now. I may need to freshen up by the evening, but this is a drastic change from before.
I definitely recommend this product to anyone with oily or combination skin - it's fantastic! I'm not using the whole Riz/Rice line, but I'm considering testing it out too. The price might seem a bit high at $30 Canadian, but it's absolutely worth it.
OMG! I think I have finally found my dream product! Yesterday I cleaned out all of the junk mail I had sitting in my kitchen and found some L'Occitane sample packets I had received in the mail some time back. I decided to try the Ultra Matte Face fluid under my foundation and was very impressed! It went on so light that I couldn't even tell I had it on. I have very oily skin and for the first time in my life I didn't have to repowder my face! It did not make my face look dry, nor did it make my foundation look cakey and best of all no oily or shiny face! I checked all of my local stores including Sephora but none of them carry this so this morning I made my first purchase online. In addition I also ordered the trial size of the Rice Foaming Cleanser and Rice Toner to try out. They should be here by the end of week and I'll rate those once I try them. If you have very oily skin like I do then this product is definitely for you!
