Lovely, lovely L’Occitane. I must admit, it reminds me of my mum but only because my first introduction to this brand was when she came back from a trip in Paris with a couple of jars and tubes. It seemed so exotic and exciting! And anyway, my mum is as much of a beauty junkie as me and a very fashionable lady I’ll have you know, so anything that reminds me of her is bound to be a good thing.
For the past couple of weeks I have diligently been testing two of their products. Firstly, the Immortelle Brightening Smoothing Exfoliator. This stuff is just incredible, in fact it is so good I may even go as far to say that it beats my beloved Kirsty McLeod Clay Exfoliator – shocker! This is one of the few exfoliators that immediately makes skin smooth. So smooth that I can even feel the change in my skin texture as i pat my face dry with a towel. Yes, really. I love it and I never want to be without it.
The second L’Occitane product I’ve been cooing over is Immortelle Brightening Renewing Serum. You can use it everyday before moisturiser or, like me, apply it after exfoliating with the Brightening Smoothing Exfoliator. The latter gives a really luxurious treat for the skin – it sinks in immediately and makes skin luminous. It is top notch for an immediate lift to the complexion and I have found that, over time, it is slowly but surely evening out my skin tone.
Thanks L’Occitane – much love to you!
