I hope you had a lovely Easter and bank holiday? Back to the grindstone now hey! I’ve got the most gorgeous collection from L’Occitane to share with you today. I’m not overly familiar with L’Occitane products to be honest, so when these little beauties arrived in the post I couldn’t wait to get stuck in and try them out! This is the Pivoine Sublime Collection, meaning ‘Sublime Peony’.
After five years of research, L’OCCITANE have created an innovative line of perfecting skincare products suitable for all complexions. The Paeonia lactiflora – a species of peony historically used for it’s therapeutic properties – has been harnessed for it’s skin-perfecting properties, which L’Occitane have integrated into their patented Perfecting Peony Complex. Its aim is to hydrate the skin, correct uneven skin texture, act on pores and fine lines, and enhance the complexion.
The collection contains these naturally derived skin-perfecting ingredients –
- Peony extract – Helps to correct skin-texture.
- Hyaluronic acid – To intensely hydrate.
- Horse chestnut extract – Gives skin a fresh glow and reduces the appearance of complexion irregularities.
- Mineral-based pigments & interferential pearlisers – Reflects the light and adapts to all skin tones.
- Natural powders – Have an instant smoothing effect; skin both looks and feels smoother.
And let’s take a look at the products…
First up we have the Skin Perfector (£38). This is an ultra light feeling serum that helps to visibly improve skin quality, giving your complexion a smooth and velvety soft feel, and leaving your skin even toned and luminous.
The Perfecting Cream (£32) has a patented formulation that contains an ‘intelligent’ texture agent with proven hydration-adjusting properties, meaning it can adapt it’s action the the climate and humidity levels – pretty clever hey? The cream feels luxurious yet supple, with a velvety finish. It also smells divine!
I’m in love the Skin Tone Perfecting CC Cream (£25). It’s formulated with the Perfecting Peony Complex, colour correcting pigments and pearly particles, which work together to perfect the skin and give a brighter and more even complexion. This is also a multi-use product, so whether you’re looking for an illuminating makeup base to use underneath your foundation, or for a more natural no-makeup look this can also be used on it’s own to add radiance to your complexion. The product itself is a silky white cream, which transforms on contact with the skin, giving a natural yet illuminated finish. If you suffer with a dull or lacklustre complexion I’d highly recommend you give this cream a go.
The Perfecting Mist (£14) is an ultra fine and delicate scented beauty mist that gives your skin an instant boost of refreshment. It’s alcohol free and aims to moisturise your complexion whilst leaving skin looking fresh and radiant. This can also be used to help your makeup last longer.
And lastly L’Occitane have included four Tinted Lip Balms (£12 each) into this collection. Enriched with Perfecting Peony Extract, the creamy balms glide onto lips with ease, to nourish, smooth, protect (SPF25) and give a subtle tint of colour. The fresh and natural shades are perfect to heighten the glow of a nude complexion.
I’m beyond impressed with all of these products, but my favourites are definitely the CC Cream for it’s brightening properties and the tinted lip balms which I’ve been using constantly over the last few days. I’d love to hear if you use L’Occitane products and if there’s anything you recommend I should try?
I hope you enjoyed my post xxx
