Glowing Skin with the L’Occitane Divine Collection

L'Occitane Divine Collection Skincare Immortelle Oil | The Beauty Look Book

I’ve been a long-time fan of the L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil and Youth Cream for the gentle yet effective anti-aging properties. This fall season they reformulated their Divine Youth Oil to increase the concentration of Immortelle essential oils to improve the anti-aging properties. L’Occitane has also expanded the Divine Skincare Collection with new cleansers and I’m thrilled to have been able to get an early peek at them to put to the test. I have five items featured today. For those new to my blog I’ll give you a little background on my skin type and concerns. I’m in my mid-30’s and have sensitive but otherwise normal skin. I’m extremely sensitive to many kinds of fragrance and any kind of reaction (to scent, ingredients etc.) usually happens immediately. I’ve used L’Occitane since I was a freshman in college starting with their Shea Butter hand creams and cuticle treatments, ventured into their body treatments and then skincare. They’ve consistently been a favorite for natural gentle and effective formulas for my skin type. For most of my life I lived in Southern California where there was mild but warm climate and the Divine Youth Oil was perfect for cooler weather and also for times I felt dry. I currently live in Florida where the heat and humidity are pretty high but I’ve still experienced dryness due to the water. My primary concerns are anti-aging, finding something lightweight but with enough moisture to hydrate the skin, and also finding cleansers that will remove all traces of sweat, makeup and dirt at the end of the day.

L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Youth Oil Review | The Beauty Look Book

The Immortelle Divine Youth Oil has been a long-time go-to and the new formula is just as good as the original. It has a lightweight soothing natural earthy scent to it, absorbs quickly into the skin and makes all tightness (if you are dry) disappear. On me it’s instantly soothing and hydrating with a good dry down but still has that soft emollient feel. Skin feels noticeably more plump and smooth. It’s one of my favorite oils ever.


L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream Review | The Beauty Look Book

The Immortelle Divine Youth Cream is also one of my favorite face moisturizers because it has a very soft consistency. This one also absorbs quickly into the skin and doesn’t leave any heavy or goopy residue. It leaves the skin looking like it has a natural glow and it’s compatible with the different formulas of foundation that I use. In general I’m more of a cream person than an oil person for day so if I had to pick one, I’d probably opt for the cream over the oil.


L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Eyes Review | The Beauty Look Book

The Immortelle Divine Eyes isn’t new, but it’s new to me. My personal favorite eye treatment has actually been the Immortelle Precious Eye Balm, but I love trying all kinds of eye treatments. The Immortelle Divine Eyes comes with a nice pump that dispenses just the right amount of product for me to cover both eyes (I only use a tiny bit). It’s a creamy gel formula that has a lightweight feel. Often times I can’t use the rich formulas for eye cream because they run into my eyes and sting them. This one has a light enough texture that it sets within a few minutes and make the skin feel smoother and softer.


L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Cleansing Balm | The Beauty Look Book

There are two new cleansers this season for a double cleanse routine including the Immortelle Divine Cleansing Balm (in a jar) and Cleansing Foam (comes in a squeeze tube). The Divine Cleansing Balm is a super hydrating balm-in-oil formula that you massage into the skin to remove makeup. Once you work it in a circular motion on the face it transforms into an oil. It removes all face makeup (I still use a regular eye makeup remover to remove mascara and eyeliner first) and almost feels like a mask treatment after you rinse. L’Occitane recommends using the Cleansing Foam after as a double cleanse to further remove impurities from the skin. I’ve tried both together and also separately. In the mornings I find I can just use the Cleansing Foam. In the evenings I like the double cleanse routine to completely clean the skin. It’s something I do anyways as I wear makeup pretty much everyday and with the long-wear formulas I find double cleansing essential to fully cleanse the skin.

L'Occitane Immortelle Divine Cleansing Foam

As a beauty blogger I love putting new things to the test but I still like to have a routine. The nice thing about brands like L’Occitane is that you can easily incorporate one or two new items into your morning or nightly skincare rituals without having to overhaul your entire routine. As cooler weather approaches I always have to switch things up a bit as my skin adjusts to temperature changes. I start using oils more frequently and if you’re looking for a nice gentle one I highly recommend giving the L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil a try for glowing skin.

    I have used several products from L’Occitane through the years. I have been looking for something like this for winter skin so I will definitely give one or all of these a try.

  • lawlaw00

    I am a longtime L’occitane fan. I’m looking forward to trying the reformulated oil. I really love the Shea oils.

  • of course it’s the hand cream, although the almond oil shower is pretty divine too

  • jingorokitty

    I have oily combo skin, and my favorite moisturizer for day is the Dermalogica Active Moist. For night I alternate between the Dr. Jart Ceramidin Gel Cream and Leahlani Aloha Ambrosia or Evening Mahina oils. I have tried samples of the L’Occitane Divine Cream and Divine Oil, and they are both really nice!

  • Federica

    I haven’t try this line by l’Occitane but their hand cream is my all time favourite 💛

  • lawler

    I have very dry skin and my favorite oil at the moment is Sunday Riley Luna. I am not attached to any particular moisturizer but was really surprised by Dear (by Emprani) Bounce Cheese Cream despite its somewhat yucky consistency.

    l’Occitane’s entire Almande line is fabulous.

  • Daisy797

    I really like Dermalogica’s Phyto for the day and Clarins Blue Orchid when dehydrated at night. My favorite moisturizer is Dr. Jart Ceramidin Liquid right now. I have combination skin, cheeks may get dry, T-zone may get oily.

    Sadly, i don’t have a favourite moisturizer and oil yet. I’ve been searching forever. I have had luck with Fresh Lotus moisturizer, but I prefer to find one that packs more anti aging ingredients inton it.

  • Bojana

    I have mixed skin.I use Argan oil ( fleurance, here is the link in case you would like to see it ) but I use this oil as a face mask, before taking a bath. Sometimes I mix it with my foundation or put it over Retinol cream during the night, but I try not to do this so often because I was reading that it can cause acne on some skin types and I am prone to acne so I try to be careful and have benefits from Argan oil but also to stay with clear skin afterwords..I had l’occitane’s famous hand cream with shea butter and shower oil with almond and they were just perfect. Greetings!!!

  • Amanda Jimenez

    My 2 favorite facial oils are NUDE Skincare ProGenius Omega Treatment Oil and Root Science Youth Serum. My skin type is combination (oily t-zone but dry everywhere else)

  • Anne Capitant

    I love L’Occitane though I haven’t tried their Divine line yet as $$$. I love their Advent Calender (hope they do one in the US again this year!) and their Almond line is amazing (though also $$$).

    • lawler

      They have two this year, Anne! One for $69 and a luxury one for $124. They’re available now on the website. Not sure if they are in store yet though.

    My favorite from L’Occitane is this collection. I didn’t know that they reformulated the Divine Oil. I will have to purchase that one again so that I can try the new formula!

  • Eileen

    I’m a huge fan of L’Occitaine’s almond line and can hardly wait to try the immortel one. For natural, calming, soothing beauty, it’s hard to beat L’Occitaine. This giveaway is such a great opportunity for some lucky person to try this special beauty brand.

    Hi. Love your work! Did you receive our email?

  • Kiffie Robbins

    I love all the L’Occitane products I’ve used. our shower is stocked with the Almond body shower oil (true love) and I am never without their shea butter products, especially hand cream. I have dry, sensitive skin, so I use beautycounter face oil currently.

  • Jennifer Jones

    My favorite oil is the Bobbi Brown Extra Oil. It’s amazing and erases my fine lines overnight. I have combo skin and it doesn’t make me breakout. I highly recommend it!

  • Yiing Zhi Teh

    I have combination skin so a lightweight, hydrating moisturizer is essential. Currently using one by Neal’s Yard Remedies. My favourite product from L’Occitane is anything from the Lavender range – smells divine!

  • Anna

    My favourite moisturizer is CosRX’s birch sap lotion, but will probably need something heavier for winter… Going to look into L’Occitane’s options! Thanks for another great review! 🙂

  • Susan Dowman-Nevling

    I’ve been a longtime fan of L’Occitane hand care and lotions. In addition, I’ve received a seven day sample of the boil, eye balm and face cream and love them. I am 68 yrs old with sensitive skin.I have been careful with sun exposure and skin care for years and have very few wrinkles and signs of aging.

  • Erika Stryker

    My favorite moisturizers are Tatcha the water cream and La Mer the moisturizing gel cream. My skin is oily to normal with cystic acne and a redness response to harsher ingredients.

  • I’ve been loving the Sunday Riley Tidal moisturiser, it’s amazing for dehydrated skin! x

  • Deborah Hayes

    Lately I have been using “The Buffet” serum from The Ordinary. This company also makes a terrific Vitamin C serum, and a hyaluronic acid serum as well.

  • Laura Schmaltz

    A long time favorite is the Perricone face finishing moisturizer – I love the smell, the way it absorbs into my skin, and the slight tingle. That makes me think it’s working! 😀

  • Tessa

    I love several of Sunday Riley’s oils for nighttime — too much for during the day. The face moisturizer I’ve sworn by for years is the CeraVe without SPF from the drugstore. Affordable and chock full of niacinamide for brightening.

  • GK

    I’ve been using Sunday Riley’s oils with my moisturizers in the morning and evening. It is rather pricey though so I’d love to find a cheaper dupe!

  • Paula Verdegaal

    Im loving the budget friendly badger seabuckthorn oil (15.99 a bottle and organic) and I have very dry skin.

  • Olivia

    Oh man, I need to try this line again. My current moisturizer is from Algenist, but I’m not wed to it. I remember sampling L’Occitane years ago and absolutely adoring the scent, texture, etc…this makes me think it’s time to check it out one more time!

  • J Lee

    I have very oily skin so I’m always paranoid about clogging my skin with facial oils. In the drier months, I have used Kiehl’s midnight recovery complex and the Biossance squalene oil. I’ve liked both but honestly don’t know if my skin even needs that rich of a moisturizer. Or maybe I just haven’t found the right one still!

  • OonaBean

    I’ve been switching back and forth between Tatcha and L’Occitane. May be time to switch over to L’Occitane again!

  • If I had to pick just one favourite L’Occitane product it should be any of the Almond range. Superb.

  • Laurie M.

    I am a neophyte with oils, but I have been using the Algenist one on the nights I don’t use tretinoin, and I think I am really going to love it in the winter. I really like the Belif Aqua Bomb in the summer, but it’s time to switch that up in the Pacific Northwest!

  • Bubblewrapper

    I am interested in the oil, with the weather getting less humid in NY, it’s time to change my routine. Right now I am using La Roche Posay Toleriane Double Repair with SPF 30 for day. Nice and soothing. Favorite oil? Sunday Riley Luna. Skin is combination and sensitive, hurray!

    I love my Tacha!

  • Sara Junya

    I have really been enjoying the Herbivore Orchid oil – it has replaced all other face oils for me!

  • Julie (julimi)

    Clinique moisturizer!

  • Gail A

    My fav is the Verveine Agrumes Cooling Deodorant. Was looking for an aluminum free one and couldn’t find one that worked in the Florida heat. In love and it lasts forever

    Ceptaphil moisturizer is quite good for everyday.
