L’Occitane Immortelle Brightening Moisture Cream Review

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.

One white daisy flower.

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.

Retails for $58 for 1.7 oz. at And it is also available at L’Occitane (UK).

  1. Any product that will lighten skin won’t do freckles. I found out that there’s a difference in the skin cells between a pigmented “sun spot” or “age spot” and a freckle. But that aside, it’s not easy to find a product that works without going into hydroquinone territory. Even then, you have to stick with it. I’ve managed to skirt around it by using peels regularly along with retinaldehydes. The one big spot I had on my left cheek last year is almost completely gone now. I’ve been religious with sunscreen too, more than ever, I am sure that has helped. I don’t think I’ve ever used a skin care product just for the scent, but there are several I can think of that have nice fragrances, and it certainly helps! It makes you more excited to use it.

    1. Oh, that is helpful info. I’m not bothered by freckles. They are what I use to “gauge” products.
      I need to start using peels more and the products you’ve suggested to me. I need to get more “serious” about my skincare.
      I love the scent of this L’Occitane but that is it. Years ago a good smell could sell me any skincare item. Now that isn’t so. I want results. And it wouldn’t hurt if results came with a good smell 😉
