L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream

Posted on: September 30, 2012

One of my friends is fan of L’Occitane, hence I was blessed from her loyal purchase and received generous samples of this “Divine” Cream. Pricing at £67/$98 for 50ml, L’Occitane has labeled Immortelle Divine as their most “Divine” anti-aging miracle.

Immortelle Divine series is enriched with organic Immortelle and Myrtle essential oils.

  • Immortelle essential oil stimulates the production of collagens and improves skin microcirculation, and also helps to reduce damage caused by time and restore substance and vitality
  • Myrtle essential oil stimulates the action of the longevity protein to help increase cellular vitality and preserve the skin’s appearance.

“ Deeply nourishes, deeply moisturizes. Radiant, Luminous, Revitalizes, Smoother, Wrinkle Reduction ”

Does the claim sound “divine”?

.

I was testing the cream after quite some time I received the samples. Due to unknown factors, the cream mixture was separated into two lipids, oil and cream as shown in below picture. As such, I strongly suggest you to get the fresh stock.

.

.

Nevertheless, the cream smelt natural and serene, carried a hint of citrus or simply Immortelle essential scent. I enjoyed the aromatherapy of Divine cream much more than Immortelle Blue’s Immortelle cream. It was perfect for my early-mature and combination skin which tended to be dehydrated easily. It imparted beautiful subtle glow that caused me being narcissistic in front of mirror.

.

However, I do not think this would be good enough for dry skin but should be loveable for drier skin in humid weather. It contains corn starch. Although I am not chemical expert but I can tell any cream with starch in ingredient list would not leave greasy touch. Cream with starch is also moisture-sucker for very dry/ dehydrated skin in low humidity air in my past experience. How I tell? The skin was uncomfortable tight and fine lines accentuated. Just like using a wrong product at wrong time causing a mess.

.

.

Apparently this is pleasant skin care trial and I really love the Immortelle story but I am also struggle to splurge since the selling price in Asia is beyond my budget for a moisturizer. Perhaps L’Occitane can introduce a valuable gift set in this coming Christmas? So I can define the “Divine” better?
