L’Occitane Terre de Lumiere Perfume Review

L'Occitane Terre de Lumiere

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

L’Occitane Terre de Lumière is a perfume inspired by the Golden Hour. It’s meant to represent warmth, radiance and a diffused glow. I’m going to say that L’Occitane achieved this with Terre de Lumiere. It’s a warm fragrance that reminds me of lazy summer “Golden Hours”.

Terre de Lumiere is like a “luminous gourmand”. It opens with bright bergamot that ventures slightly into Earl Grey tea territory. I also pick up something that is like dried apricots. There’s… Continue reading

It’s Rose Week on EauMG! This is the annual celebration of rose-centric perfumes! This week I’m reviewing 5 fragrances that display a different aspect of rose perfumes.

The Lipstick League – week of 12.1.14

Question of the Week: So let’s hear it. Did you make any Black Friday/Cyber Monday beauty purchases? Spill the beans!

EauMG’s Answer: Well, it sure was tempting but I didn’t buy anything. Hard to believe, I know. There were plenty of great deals but I didn’t *need* anything so I didn’t buy anything. I’m trying to save up for a trip in the next few months. I’m amazed by my willpower at this time. What about you?

The Pivoine Flora scent is described as an “intense, green floral structure” with peony and magnolia with a musky, woody finish.

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… Continue reading | 5 Comments
