This gentle cleansing foam comes from the L'occitane Immortelle collection which is infused with the immortelle extract. The whole collection is aimed at taking care of aging skin though I deem it isn’t right to say that a face foam can be really “anti-age” as it just can’t make your skin look dramatically younger, so I call everybody for using this product regardless of the age.
Price - $12.50 for a 50ml bottle and $30 for a 150 ml bottle (the prices are from the official site usa.loccitane.com)
The product is pricey, isn’t it? Taking the ball before the bound I want to say that all the negative reviews of this product aren’t mainly connected with the product’s price tag but with the wrong use of it. I read so many reviews where girls used to complain saying that this cleanser doesn’t wash off their cosmetic products from their skin!
But this isn’t a makeup remover, girls! There is another product from the collection which is actually aimed at makeup removing - Immortelle Milk Make Up Remover.
Here are the product promises:
The Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam, containing Immortelle floral water, gently foams to delicately cleanse the skin, leaving the soft and floral fragrance of Immortelle. For best results, pair with the rest of the anti-aging Immortelle collection.
There isn’t a word that indicates that the product is a makeup remover. So don’t be upset or confused abut it.
It’s a plastic bottle with a pump dispenser.
The foam is liquid in the bottle but the pump makes it lather, making a gentle and soft floral foam.
My impressions of use: the foam cleanses my skin very delicately. It isn’t drying to my skin at all (my skin is combination and sensitive).
The product doesn’t go a long way for me. I’ve used my 50ml bottle within 2 weeks. I used it daily and only in the morning. Though I deem such products never go a long way, you know.
My comparison of the L'occitane Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam with the Caudalie Instant Foaming Cleanser:
The texture of both products is almost the same:
The ingredients are also a little bit resembling. Here’s the Caudalie foam list of ingredients for a comparison:
The Caudalie foam also has some SLS components, as well as the L’occitane product. It’s also infused with the plant origin glycerin. But it lacks the plant extracts which the L’occitane foam is replete with. Both foams are absolutely non-drying for my skin hence they are rather mild and are good only for morning use.
But I can say that it feels like the L'occitane foam cleanses my skin better and it has a lot of plant extracts that seem to be affecting my skin positively, as I’ve noticed my skin color changing for the better.
I presume that the Caudalie product will be cherished by those who have sensitive and dry skin (like mine) and for those who have normal or combination skin type, it’s better to choose the L’occitane Immortelle Precious Cleansing Foam.
If you’d ask me for a cheaper dupe, then I can state that both of these foams really remind me of the Vichy Purete Thermale Purifying Foaming Water which is at least 2 times less expensive.
