L’Occitane Radiance Moisturizing Cream

Posted on: February 21, 2010

With its smooth, light texture, this face cream is suitable for all skin types, especially dull and tired skins. It illuminates the complexion, stimulates the blood micro-circulation, and protect against daily oxidizing skin aggressions (light, pollution, smoke…). Skin natural radiance and balance are restored. L’Occitane says.


I received few sample packs of this Olive cream many months ago, finally I got the mood to try it out. I’m not sure whether this if this Radiance Moisturizing Cream is going to be slowly faded out as L’Occitane had launched their Organic Olive Oil series quite a while back. Anyhow, I love benefit of olive very much, but it may be potentially comedogenic as it’s heavy/nourishing oil, especially when it’s going to stay on skin for long hours. May be olive oil of cosmetic-grade is totally different with food-grade, because eventually it worked out very fine on my combination skin during the few days sampling.



The light cream smoothed on easily and it has mild pleasant scent. A little bit greasy right after application, but once it’s fully absorbed, skin felt smooth, soft and moisturized instead. I used quite generous amount for each application, it just enough for moisturizing in air-conditioned room, meanwhile it didn’t give me breakout as well.


With only few samples, I couldn’t verdict its promise of radiance skin in just few days since my skin was also well-behaved during the short period, so basically no obvious dullness issue. For skin care, apart well-balanced and moisturized skin can lead to glowing skin from within, I believe if the active antioxidant ingredients of the cream are still fresh and potent, then radiance skin is never a dream.
