L’Occitane Immoretelle Brightening Moisture Cream is a lightweight gel-cream that claims to lighten dark spots, moisturize, and firm skin with organic immortelle essential oil, daisy flower, and fig. I know this is a bit sad, but the only reason I like this cream is because I love the way it smells.
The formula is super lightweight for my normal to dry skin. This would make a good night cream for me in the summer or a day cream with sunscreen layered over it. It doesn’t provide enough moisture for me in the winter. This could be a good moisturizer for normal to oily skin types. It dries quickly and leaves my skin feeling very silky, powdery. This appears to give temporary tightening/firming. There’s a small amount of “light deflectors”. It isn’t too shimmery and I like the effect and feel.
The fragrance is beautiful. It’s green, summery, and like figs. It’s awesome. Can I get this in a body cream, please?
I didn’t see any results using this brightening cream. Freckles are still there. I’ve yet to purchase any cream that actually lightens dark spots. I do like this cream but it doesn’t do anything that it claims to do. You know, I’d put up with this if it was $20 instead of pushing $60. I really do like the feel and fragrance, but that is all.
Who may like this? Those that want a fig scented cream. I do think the texture is nice for normal to oily skins. But, these normal to oily skins better not have problem skin such as dark spots. For me, this is a pretty scented, light-weight basic moisturizer with a high end price tag. I enjoy using it but I know it isn’t providing any results. It smells and feels nice; that’s it. Will I purchase a full-size? No, not at its current price.
Who may not like this? Those that dislike scented skincare. Those with dry skin types. Those that really want a cream to lighten and tighten and provide results. Also, those with ragweed allergies or sensitive skin (there’s daisy flower in this). This cream does not contain a sunscreen. This cream is expensive for what little it does.
