I’ve known the L’Occitane brand for years. I love their hand and foot creams. But in fact, I still find their prices a little bit too high, so I prefer buying their products on sale and get some of them as thank you presents for purchases.

I bought this product at 50% off and got some good trial size products which the sales rep presented to me.
Actually, I don’t welcome the branded face skin care, except for several products. I don’t even know what exactly had pushed me to purchase this one. But there’s no way back and I own it now.
The cream comes packed in a standard 15ml vial. The smell of the entire collection won’t be welcomed by everyone. But the consistency for an age-fighting cream seems to be too lightweight. It’s just a liquid white cream that looks more like an emulsion. I can’t say that it’s a cream or a balm.
My eye contour skin is dry and reactive when we have heaters on. So, I’m on a permanent lookout for a good and nurturing product for my skin even for a morning routine. Due to my skin dryness and lack of moisture, I can see how creased and aging my skin becomes.
It was because of the consistency that I couldn’t fit this cream into my night skin care game. I can use it only in the morning. I always apply a lot of it because the formula sinks in quickly and my skin was as though thirsty for it. After sinking in, the cream doesn’t leave any hint of being present, no oily film or glowing finish. My skin feels hydrated and soothed but only within the first hour of application.
It’s easy to apply a concealer over it but within an hour all that moisture sensation disappears and I can see how creased my concealer becomes. By the end of the day, my skin looks dry, tugged and it’s even painful to touch it.
The concealer is settled into fine lines, all the wrinkles are more defined and my skin looks dull.
In general, my eyes look sad and tired with it.
The product does nothing about my dark under eye circles and never does anything about occasional puffy eyes. When my skin was reacting and allergic, it was tingling unpleasantly which caused redness afterward. However, that sensation would vanish within 30 minutes. But still, I conclude that this product is never an option for sensitive skin.
I haven’t noticed anything from this product, not even the simplest moisture. I can’t get how they say that it’s anti-aging. Its formula is too runny for that.
Maybe it can be an option for some of you who have no skin problems. But this way, it would be more rational to opt for a cheaper eye cream.
I’ve used it up, applying with a very thick layer, like a mask and even that way it didn’t do anything with my skin. There’s no accumulative effect as well as immediate results from it.
If only the maker described it as a lightweight moisturizer, I’d have never even said anything bad about it. But here, no, it’s just a waste of money.
I won’t ever repurchase and won’t even take its trial sizes.
I can’t recommend it for purchasing.
