Hi Lovelies, This is the first product I bought from L’Occitane and its performance has made me a loyal fan of L’Occitane. I bought this around 3 months back and since then have continued to buy many different products from L’Occitane. This product brightens skin and also lightens pigmentation marks. This is beneficial for ladies who want to reduce tanning or lighten blemishes. If used before a special day, the skin will have a special glow on the following day. As I’m in my twenties, I can’t comment on the anti-ageing benefits of this product but immortelle essential oil is also known to reduce ageing and give a youthful glow to skin because this oil boosts collagen synthesis in addition to controlling melanin.
What the product claims
The Immortelle flower offers a brightening extract that contributes to reduced melanin synthesis. This mask contains immortelle essence and provides hydration and a brightening effect on the skin. After use skin is immediately deeply moisturised smoothed and more firm.
Price : Rs 3690 for 125mls .I bought this in Australia for AUD 79.95.
Apply a thick layer to clean, dry skin, 2 to 3 times a week, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 5-10 minutes. For optimal efficiency, massage the mask into skin by using the massage techniques explained on the back of the box. Gently remove any excess product with a tissue if needed. Do not rinse.
This product has a cream like consistency unlike other masks.The fragnance is beautiful and this product is very easy to use .After cleansing my face with L’Occitane Immortelle brightening cleansing foam, I apply a this mask and leave it on, it can be left overnight if desired .The instructions tells you how to apply the mask. When I get up the following morning i feel my skin is plumped up and bright. There is radiance the whole day and I feel there is no need for foundation. This gives me the same results a salon facial -just like how your face wood look after all the massaging from a facial. I have oily skin but this product has hydrated my skin without making it oily. This product comes in a tub but contains a small spatula .Never use your fingers. Best use is from 6 months since opening the tub.
I use this thrice a week at night.I never forget to carry this around on trips, holidays etc .This can be used on airtravel as it deeply hydrates the skin- and doesn’t look like you have a mask on. This is one of the best face masks which i have used so far. This product is more suitable for winter. If using in summer please use a spf 30 PA+++ sunscreen after using the mask. As melanin synthesis is reduced, the skin might be more susceptible to sun damage. I use Clinique city block.
Pros of this product
- Instantly hydrates and brightens the skin-results can be seen with single use.
- The fragrance is lovely
- As only a small amount is needed each time this product will last long
- The mask is easy to use-does not require washing after use.
- This mask leaves you pampered and gives a spa like feeling 🙂
- Bit pricey- this might be an expensive indulgence to many.
- I haven’t seen travel size versions of this product.
- Essential oils such as immortelle might not be suitable for sensitive skin.
Will I purchase this again?
I will Definitely repurchase as it is worth every Dollar/Rupee.
My rating for the product : 4/5.
