Deeply rooted in Provence, where the company was founded in 1976, L’Occitane creates products that bring together time-tested beauty techniques, exceptional natural ingredients, and—of course—impressive results. Their latest triumph is this recently launched daily serum, which does the job of both a primer and antiaging treatment. Formulated with potent botanicals, it targets skin woes such as dullness, dryness, and redness and leaves behind a silky matte finish.
Didn't think this primer did anything My face texture looked and felt the same. Definitely no comparison to the laface age defying primer Laface is sooo much better.1
This product smells great. I do end up using more of this product than I do similar serum type products I have.4
Not enough in my sample to notice a change. Feels and smells great. If the price was right, I would purchase this product!5
I love this product! It instantly made my complexion brighter and super glowy/dewy looking. It feels great going on and has a nice herbal scent. It really helps make your makeup look great all day.4
I really like the way my skin looks after I used this. It just looked brighter and more radiant to me. I also love how I can use the sample size multiple times! It is a little pricey5
I received the sample of L'Occitane's Sublime Essence but didn't try it right away. I have acne prone skin and am leery of serum products, but the smell won me over. This product smells amazing. I would use it for that reason alone. It is not perfumey, but has a very light, subtle floral/herb scent (and I mean very light - even for those that are sensitive to scents). I have been using the serum at night (by itself) and in the morning under moisturizer. No noticeable breakouts and my makeup goes on so smoothly and seems to look better on my skin. I do not notice much in the way of radiance or antiaging (but I have only been using it for a matter of days), but I do see a noticeable difference when I use it under makeup. Even though it's a bit pricey, I plan to purchase the full sized product.5
I love the smell, love the feel! Can't get enough of this stuff5
My initial response is positive. I love serums and this is silky smooth,with a nice application and very pleasant smell.
The sample is ample enough to test drive it. Will possibly purchase this one!
My main issue with this product is it's spreadability - it has none. I am sure my skin enjoys receiving a very concentrated amount of this product since I can't spread it, but I do wonder if I am wasting it. I have a lot of trust for this brand so maybe that is the best form for the product to be in. I thought my sample size was generous at first but quickly realized otherwise.
The sample packaging of this product makes it so that I will probably be lucky to get even 2/3 of what is in the jar out and onto my face. Boo.
It claims to deliver moisture, and while I didn't feel like I received any immediate moisture, it feels nourishing and serums are usually much deeper/longer term acting products, so I will have to judge after a few days of use.
Refined the texture of my skin like a primer, so if you don't like using moisturizer before your foundation, this might be a nice product for you in that way.
Overall, a very concentrated serum - it feels very high quality but they could work on the packaging.
The results of this are not instant, so I have no idea if it actually works. Maybe after time, I will be able to tell. I put it on and had no idea what it did. I had to look it up. This is why I gave it a neutral rating across the board.3
