I love skincare in all of it’s forms but I’ve had to change my skincare routine over the past few years as my over 30’s skin needs a bit of extra tlc, I find a richer cream works wonders and that’s where L’Occitane Immortelle Cream* (£46) comes in.
Immortelle is known as the everlasting flower because it never fades, even after it has been picked. Its rich in active molecules with unique anti-ageing properties which is something my skin needs. According to Greek mythology, the immortelle flower was the beauty secret of Princess Nausicca who rubbed Odysseus body with Immortelle as an elixir of youth when he was shipwrecked.
I suffer from dry sensitive skin which needs a lot of nourishment and I find the Immortelle cream to be a very rich and smooth moisturiser which works great without a facial serum or oil beforehand. The cream soaks into my skin very quickly and leaves it feeling incredibly soft, a little goes a long way. I don’t suffer from any deep wrinkles but I do have fine lines and the cream does help to smooth these out and help restore firmness to my skin.
I started using this cream 4 weeks ago, my skin was feeling rather parched as a result of the season changing and having the central heating on in the house. I was suffering from dryness and my skin was looking very dull. The pot contains 50ml of product and based on my current use I estimate that I will get around 3 months use from the pot which works out as £15.30 a month, incredibly good value in my opinion.
There is a scent with this products which is incredibly light, fresh and botanical, it leaves my skin smelling like juicy clementine’s and it instantly refreshes me in the morning. I’ve actually gone back to using a very light cc cream where I would usually have changed to a full coverage foundation but I haven’t needed it as my skin is so bright and radiant that I don’t feel the need to cover it with makeup like I usually would.
I’ve been so impressed with this cream that I’ve bought the night cream too. Have you tried anything from the Immortelle range?
