L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime Face Products

L'Occitane Pivoine SublimePIN IT

There are some wonderful new additions to the L’Occitane range of face products that are all designed to perfect skin, and the way I see them is that they kind of gently enhance to give skin a little bit more radiance, a little more glow and just a general ‘bonne mine’ finish to the skin.  Consequently, the range is suited to everyone and I don’t think there will be any skin types who should exclude themselves, but obviously overly sensitive or heavily spot-prone types will want to tread carefully.  There are five new products in the Pivoine Sublime range, a Skin Perfector, a Perfecting Cream, a Skin Tone Perfecting Cream, a Perfecting Mist and four new lip balms, three of which are tinted.  I have the Skin Tone perfecting Cream, the Perfecting Mist and a couple of the lipbalms.

L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Mist and CC Cream reviewPIN IT

The Perfecting Mist is one of those lovely, easy mists that gives a fine spray of hydrating and gently scented toner which works to either hydrate during your skin tone routine, or refresh make-up throughout the day.  If you like the idea of a hydrating mist without the overpowering smell then this is a really good choice in a light and travel-friendly bottle.  It’s £14 here – link.  The Skin Tone Perfecting Cream is actually a CC cream available in either light or medium.  It’s one of those creams that comes out white and then turns a skin colour and it’s quite a sheeny product with an SPF20.  It’s a lovely and hydrating product that works well either on its own for low coverage days, or under make-up as a perfecting primer, however, the only thing I don’t like about it is the strong scent, as the concept of applying heavily perfume products to my face doesn’t sit well with me.  Having said that, I haven’t had any issues with it and it really does give skin a great glow.  It’s £25 here – link.

L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Lip Balms ReviewPIN IT

Can you beat a L’Occitane lip balm?  I’m not sure you can; balms seem to be one of the many things they do amazingly well, and certainly their Ultra Soft Balm is still one of my everyday staples (great for blocking self-tan on dry bits, but I digress) so it’s safe to say that the Pivoine Sublime lip balms are beautiful – comfortable, comforting, pretty to look at and lovely to use.  The lids twist on and off which I really like as it makes them a lot more secure for travel.  Alongside the clear version there are three shades; Rose Nude (want!), Rose Plum (pictures above with the Transparent shade) and Rose Amber, although for some reason I can only find Rose Amber and Transparent on the site, which are £12 each.  There is, however, a lovely little trio set for £32 here – link.

    Hi Sascha

    The lip balms look great – right up my street. Please can you tell me if the SPF25 is broad spectrum?

      That’s a very good point Alex, I’m not too sure! It doesn’t specify on either the site or the balm itself unfortunately xx
