L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime

There hasn't been a L'Occitane face cream that received so much love in my household since the Angelica Hydra Vital Gel. This new face cream has spoiled me rotten, I think I may have a new fave! L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Cream (50ml | £32) is as lovely on the inside, as it is on the outside! The reddish blush glass jar looks and feels luxurious. Running pale from the bottom and more fiery to the top, it looks like it's glowing under the light – it's definitely the most beautiful item of my skincare collection. Formulated with skin-perfecting peony extract and mineral-based optical correctors, it has an hydration-adjusting properties meaning that it can adapt to the climate and humidity levels. 

It feels like a thick (but non-oily) serum or a cream/gel hybrid of peach coloring. It actually feels more substantial than usual gel creams, richer and a bit thicker. I can definitely feel the hydration being elevated when I use it but the curious thing about it is that it always feels non-greasy, non-oily. Regardless of how much I apply, it never gets cakey or heavy. Sometimes, when my face is extra dehydrated, my skin drinks the first layer in and I apply the second layer – it still remains airy and light. If my skin feels oilier, I apply a single thin coat and it doesn't feel suffocating nor has it clogged my pores. It actually acts as a makeup primer as well – it minimizes pores and softens the appearance of the complexion. But it does so in such a lovely natural way that I wouldn't dare to compare it to silicone-based creams. It's better.

L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Skin Tone Perfecting CC Cream (30ml | £25) is an amazing multitasker, highly recommend if you're a fan of layering makeup – or if you're a natural type of girl. Let me explain what it's all about. It's formulated with color correcting pigments and pearly particles, which work together to perfect the skin and give a brighter and more even complexion. It has a white base, very creamy and silky in texture, which is filled with those correcting beads. It applies white and as soon as you start rubbing it into the skin – tint gets released, giving a natural yet illuminated finish. Now, this is a light coverage product – a CC cream it's not, it's more of a perfecting base. I have the shade Medium which ‘lifts’ up and warms up the complexion. There's also a Light shade, perfect for paler skin tones with a cooler, pinkier undertone.

This is also a multi-use product, so whether you're looking for an illuminating makeup base to use underneath your foundation, or for a more natural no makeup look this can also be used on it's own to add radiance to your complexion. It's the perfect product for a lackluster, dull skin. Have in mind that both products are scented – they both smell of freshly cut peonies, with the juicy buds, ruffled petals and everything. The L'Occitane Pivoine Flora Petal Soap (75g | £5) feels like a vintage gem – so pretty and fragrant, I cannot bring myself to use it so I store it in my special drawer. Sublime indeed!

  • Jos od Angelica Hydra Vital hidratantnog gela jedna L'Occitane krema nije izazvala toliko odusevljenje u mom domu. Ovaj novitet me je toliko razmazio i ugodio svim prohtjevima, da mogu samo reci kako imam novog favorita! L'Occitane Raskosni Bozur krema za savrsenu put (50ml | 74KM) u sebi krije jednako raskosnu i luksuznu ljepotu koju spolja pokazuje. Staklenka je narocito lijepa, sa ombre effektom svjetlijim od dna ka vrhu, gdje postaje vatrena – na svjetlu djeluje kao da sija iznutra. Definitivno je najljepsi preparativni komad u mojoj kolekciji. Formulisana sa ekstraktom bozura koji proljepsava kozu, kao i optickim korektorima na mineralnoj bazi, posjeduje sposobnost da prilagodi hidrataciju konkretnim potrebama koze ali i okolnoj klimi te nivoima vlage u zraku.
  • Teksturom je poput gustog, nemasnog seruma ili gel-kreme boje breskve. Meni djeluje dosta konkretnije, raskosnije od gel krema koje sam do sada isprobala jer je ipak bogatija i gusca. Pri svakom koristenju osjetno popravlja stanje koze, intenzivno je hidrira. Ono po cemu je specificna je da uvijek ostaje lagana na kozi – unatoc epitetima ‘gusca’, ‘raskosnija’ tekstura koje sam joj pripisala. Prozracnost zadrzava cak i kada nanesem vise slojeva na lice. Nekada, kada mi je koza posebno isusena, nanesem dva sloja – prvi mi koza potpuno upije a drugi ‘dopuni rezerve’. Ako mi je koza pak masnija, nanosim jedan tanji sloj koji dopusta kozi da dise i nece zacepiti pore. Ponasa se i kao izvrstan prajmer za sminku – smanji pore i omeksa izgled koze. Ali to radi na tako prirodan nacin da se necu usuditi porediti je sa kremana na bazi silikona. Bolja je.
  • L'Occitane Raskosni Bozur CC krema za savrsenu put SPF20 (30ml | 57KM) je bas poseban proizvod i preporucujem ga ako inace volite ritual sminkanja i volite slojevito nanositi sminku – ili cak ako ste ljubiteljica potpuno prirodnog makeupa. Formulisana je sa korektivnim pigmentima i bisernim cesticama, koje zajedno ujednacavaju kozu i cine je blistavijom. Bazni dio je bijele boje, kremaste i barsunaste teksture i u njoj su sicusne perlice sa pigmentom. Kada je tek nanesete na kozu, djeluje bijelo ali se utrljavanjem oslobadja veo boje koji se stapa sa kozom. Prekrivanje je slabo – ovo nije CC krema, radije bih je nazvala bazom/prajmerom za usavrsavanje koze. Imam nijansu Medium koja ‘utopli’ ten i dok postoji nijansa Light, pogodnija za svjetliji ten hladnijeg, ruzicastog podtona.
  • Kao jedan multipraktican proizvod, ova ‘CC krema’ je super za koristiti ispod tecnog pudera, u svrhu baze koja osvjetljava ten i daje mu zivost. A mozete je koristiti i samostalno za prirodan makeup. Toplo preporucujem ako vam je koza sivkasta. Imajte na umu da su svi proizvodi iz ove linije parfimirani – mirisu na buket svjeze podrezanih bozura. Savrseno docara naborane latice i socne pupoljke. L'Occitane Bozur toaletni sapun (75g | 9KM) je poput vintage komada nakita – isuvise je lijep da ga koristim pa sam ga ostavila u ladici za posebni ves. Raskosni bozur je stvarno raskosan!
