Need to even skin tone and brighten your skin? Well, L’Occitane has recently added three products to their Immortelle collection.
What is immortelle you ask? The immortelle flower grows abundantly on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea, has an exceptionally long life and retains its form and color when dried. L’Occitane has extracted a precious essential oil from the immortelle, which has anti-free radical and anti-wrinkle properties.
L’Occitane’s Immortelle collection offers a complete anti-aging solution for the face and hands. The three new products added to the Immortelle Brightening collection are enriched with a new extract, Garden Nasturtium, for boosted action to leave skin instantly dewy and youthfully radiant.
The additions include:
Brightening Essence ($56): A concentrated serum that optimizes penetration of active ingredients for dramatically brighter, more radiant skin.
Brightening Moisture Cream ($58): A daily moisturizer with an ultra-fresh gel-cream texture that helps correct wrinkles, even skin tone and brighten the complexion.
Brightening Hand Care SPF 15 ($30): A non-oily, protective hand lotion that smoothes the skin, evens skin tone and reduces the appearance of age spots.
What I think: I have been using this collection day and night for a few weeks and have seen some results. I think my skin is clearer in tone and a bit brighter. I do not have a lot of age spots yet (knock on wood), but my skin can get dull. I find that immediately after each application, my skin does look brighter. I have combination skin, and this does not seem to make me break out, which is great!
As for the products themselves, they are heavily scented with a floral/green fragrance. This is probably natural, but if you are fragrance sensitive, be aware.
The textures are nice. The serum and creams are not greasy at all and seem to quickly absorb.
I would recommend these products to someone who would like to even skin tone and fade dark spots. You can purchase them at usa.loccitane.com.
