A beauty collection inspired by Peonies…

This Summer, L’Occitane has released a collection that is based of the most popular and feminine flower; Peony. I’ve always loved L’Occitane products, especially their fragrances so this collection is definitely worth trying.

Pivoine Flora Eau de Toilette
The scent opens with fresh accords of grapefruit and bergamot. The heart of this scent gives it a feminine twist with the Peonies and Roses. The musky notes add character to the scent. It’s a beautiful, light yet feminine fragrance! The longevity on me is about 5 hours however, this may vary on each person.

Top Note      |  Grapefruit, Bergamot
Heart Note  |  Peony, Rose
Base Note    |  Sandalwood, White Musk

*Price: 259 AED (75 ml)

 

Pivoine Sublime  //  Skin Perfector Serum
After testing out this product for a few weeks now, I can safely say that it does evens out my skin complexion. This may vary on each person and bare in mind that it has to be used regularly before getting results. It also does tighten up the skin and pores a bit however, it doesn’t closes them. The serum can be used on all skin types and it’s recommended to be used in combination with the Pivoine Sublime facial cream
*Price: 259 AED (30 ml)

Pivoine Sublime  //  Perfecting Cream
I love the fact that it has a gel texture because it works better for oily skin types. It feels very cooling, fresh and hydrating to the skin. According to the brand, this face cream offers a 24 hours hydration and it can be used on all skin types.
*Price: 239 AED (50 ml)

CC cream
My favourite product from this collection is definitely the CC cream! It feels extremely light weighted, colour corrects the skin and it has SPF 20 in it. I prefer to wear the CC cream with a powder foundation on top and it’s life changing! The powder that I’m using has a sheer to medium coverage however, when wearing it on top of the CC cream is offers a full coverage yet feels light weighted. The CC cream can be worn on it’s own or underneath a liquid or powder foundation. I don’t recommend wearing the CC cream on it’s own unless you have a fair complexion, because it can look white in certain lightenings.
*Price: 169 AED (30 ml tube)

Overall, I think this is a beautiful collection, each product works great and they all compliment each other. The collection is available at all L’Occitane stores across the Middle East.
