Perhaps more than any other organic name, L’Occitane captivates us with their countless forms of oils and similarly based products. Though shea butter had its moment as it was the brand's hero ingredient, many have come to appreciate the newer specialized treatments that go beyond this classic buttery skin softener. Unforgettably cheeky florals from Mediterranean farms are found in many of L’Occitane’s treatments, which help amp up skin care results. For example, the Immortelle flower (from plantations in Corsica) has the extraordinary power to never fade, even when picked. The florals are picked in the morning and distilled on site that evening to extract all pure constituents. It’s this type of intricate complexity that gives the Immortelle Very Precious Eye Serum ($52) its cult status.
It's easy to see why fans are so obsessive. Suffused within a vegetable, omega-3 rich oil mix (Gold of Pleasure, Cameline, Borage, Evening Primrose) is the soft floral, Immortelle essential oil. It’s most widely preferred for an innate ability to stimulate the production of new skin cells. This makes it popular in skincare for acne scars, dry and weathered skin. For those who hate gloppy eye creams or struggle with hard-to-remove milia, this is an extremely light serum designed to help reduce your telltale signs of aging. With a feathery form sealed within an air tight package to preserve its essences, the serum sinks right away, which helps with your make-up mornings. As with all eye creams, remember to pat with your ring finger, which produces the least amount of pressure.
As with those atypical flowers we covet and adore, this is a serum is impressably appealing.
