L’Occitane Divine Extract Review

The Latin name of the immortelle flower is ‘Helichrysum’ which translates to ‘golden sun’. The words refer to the golden yellow petals of the beautiful flower. The Divine Extract by L’Occitane is branded as a serum that targets the weariness of the skin to plump it up and deliver complexion that looks visibly younger. Containing a high concentration of the oil from the immortelle flower coupled with myrtle essential oils, this serum is touted to be one of the most effective skincare products. Let’s have a look at a few of the features of this product to gauge if it really is everything it is made out to be.

L’Occitane Divine Extract Review on Packaging

L’Occitane has gone the ‘less is more’ way with the packaging of the Divine Extract. It is available in a 1 fl. oz. bottle that is well designed and pleasing to the eye. The bottle itself looks like an understated piece of jewelry. The cover is a golden metal affair that is branded with L’Occitane’s name. The bottle containing the serum is opaque but has a glassy sheen. The color of the bottle too lends itself to the immortelle flower beautifully. It is golden sunny yellow in color, resembling the petals of the flower.

L’Occitane Divine Extract Review on Texture

Serums need to be deep-reaching without rendering the skin oily and difficult to deal with. The L’Occitane Divine Extract does well on this parameter. The texture of the serum is velvety soft. Upon application, it leaves the skin feeling and looking fresh and non-oily. The extract manages to be deep-reaching while being very light on the skin.

L’Occitane Divine Extract Review on Smell

The lovely helichrysum flower is informally called the immortelle flower because of its magical ability to retain its color and smell even after it has been picked and dried. Found on the beautiful island of Corsica, these flowers are harvested from L’Occitane’s organic cultivation land. Just like the flower, the smell of the Divine Extract is concentrated and long lasting. This sweet smelling serum has a wafting fragrance that is heady yet magical. The floral fragrance of the product stays on for a long time.

L’Occitane Divine Extract Review on Effectiveness

The strain of the immortelle flower that L’Occitane favors has the highest concentration of neryl acetate (approximately 30 percent). Neryl acetate has a variety of properties that bolster the anti-aging benefits of the flower. It is anti-spasmodic, anti-inflammatory in nature and boasts of wound-healing and scar-healing properties. This anti-aging serum is highly effective in retightening the facial skin and most users will be able to see its re-contouring work within a week of using it. It also visibly reduces the sagging of skin and boosts the overall structure of the face.

Ingredients of L’Occitane Divine Extract

L’Occitane’s Divine Extract mixes the extract of immortelle with 7 powerful ingredients – Corsican myrtle, Corsican honey, Bellis Perennis, evening primrose, hyaluronic acid and camelina oil. Each of these ingredients works individually to attract moisture, make the skin plumper, reduce melanin formation and improve skin elasticity.

L’Occitane Divine Extract Review on Price

A 1 fl. oz. bottle of L’Occitane’s Divine Extract might be considered expensive at $116, but that would be like putting a price on bottled sunlight. Check it out on Amazon.

Summary: L’Occitane is the French skincare brand that has been creating some of the best beauty and skincare products available in the market with the use of the sunny immortelle flower.
