With spring quickly approaching, there's no better time to update and refresh your beauty regime. So when L'Occitane's NEW Immortelle Brightening Mist crossed my desk, I was eager to give it a try. Read on for my review…
What they say: To let the light reveal all of skin's youth, L'Occitane has extended its Immortelle Brightening rage with a new product, formulated with the same rigour and exacting standards as the most advanced anti-aging creams.
The NEW Immortelle Brightening Mist is an alcohol-free mist that refreshes, softens and brightens the complexion. It's also perfect for spraying over make-up to help it stay fixed all day! It combines the unique properties of Immortelle essential oil with Bellis Perennis to keep skin young-looking, radiant and even-toned.
The Immortelle breathes youth visibly into the skin, helping to correct wrinkles while the Bellis Perennis acts to help visibly reduce the appearance of pigmentation marks.
What I think: This mist is refreshing (the first ingredient is water, after all) and the mix of cool liquid and strong fragrance hitting your senses definitely gives you a little pick-me-up. It's neither drying nor particularly hydrating nor particularly "brightening." Ultimately, it comes down to whether or not you love the fragrance - it's got notes of daisy and Witch Hazel but for some reason, it smells like lavender to me. Like all L'Occitane products, the scents are rich and heavy and instantly transport you to the South of France. Whether or not you want to smell like that is up to personal preference. For me, the scent was too strong and lingering, but I'm sure others would love this.
The bottom line: L'Occitane's Brightening Mist would fall into the "little luxury" category - for $20, I can see this being an amazing product to have around in the summer, but it's certainly not a necessity. Also would make a great Mother's Day gift idea for L'Occitane lovers.
