ThisThatBeauty Reviews: L’Occitane Divine Collection

I always have mixed feelings about skincare or beauty products that have “big” names — names that promise the world in results, but may not deliver on their word.  However, when a product lives up to the extravagant title, I feel such a sense of accomplishment, as if I am somehow responsible for the stellar results.  I know, I know – a little dose of humble pie wouldn’t hurt, right? My personal self esteem matters aside, I recently had an aforementioned experience after trying the L’Occitane Divine Collection Skincare line.  The name alone drove up the hype for me, but thankfully the experience and results truly made me feel it was worth it.

L'occitane divine collection

The L’Occitane Divine collection is comprised of 4 products – a toning lotion, an eye cream, an extract and a luxe cream, and is formulated with 7 plant-derived active ingredients that are designed to give skin a youthful and radiant glow.  The primary ingredient is the immortelle flower, which has unique anti-aging properties and gives this collection its swoon-worthy results.  Though the line is quite decadent and luxe, the products themselves are surprisingly lightweight and work well with my oily skin.

My two favorite products from the L’Occitane Divine Collection are the Divine Lotion and the Divine Cream.  I initially was thrown off by the “lotion” name (yes, even beauty gals mix it up once in a while), and thought this may be a lighter version of the cream.  But instead, I was pleasantly surprised to see this was a toner – and we all know how I feel about toners (pssst…if you don’t know, I LIVE for toners), so naturally I was excited to try. L'occitane divine extract

The Toner has milky texture which I appreciate since most toners are often clear,  It made my skin feel hydrated and smooth immediately after cleansing, when my skin can occasionally feel a bit tight.  I finished my nightly routine with the Divine Cream, and ‘Divine’ it was – in richness, scent and feel.  With a texture that felt decadent, nourishing as well as lightweight, my skin absorbed it immediately, and felt unbelievably soft the next morning.  Wait, correct that.  Unbelievably DIVINE.

All products are now available on usa.loccitane.com and range from $54-$116.

Recently transitioning from a decade long career as an executive in the cosmetics industry to her current role as sales manager for a baby goods company, Maree has turned her insider information into a spectator sport. Choosing products appropriate for the office, understanding how to transition from day to night, and constantly seeking the elusive weekend “makeup, no makeup” look are the issues that keep Maree up at night. When she is not testing out products and blabbing about them on This That Beauty, you can find her blabbings on A Little Bit etc, her personal fashion/beauty blog – it’s a little bit fashion, a little bit beauty and a whole lot of sass. Maree currently resides in Bergdorf Goodman (or her apt in Midtown Manhattan), spends her summers vacationing at Sephora (or the dog park near her apt), and dreams of one day amassing so much makeup, that she will need a bigger home.

    I love products that are milky. If you say that these deserve a testing then I’ll try just to see how it feels on my skin

    Thank you!
