You can wear this serum alone or pair it with a moisturizer like L’Occitane’s Sublime Beauty Cream.

Birchbox Breakdown

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.

How to Use

Before moisturizing, smooth a nickel-sized amount all over face and neck. Follow with moisturizer or your usual makeup.

Wonderful
Purchased

I first got this as a sample in my bonus shop 2 piece.
I was pretty happy when I saw how big and fancy the sample was and the smell was very nice and lightly floral.
When i was talking about how great it smelled my mother walked by and she was like "can i have that" and as hesitant as I was, I was like "oh fine" she used it and she fell in love with it. The ingredients are really good too.
I told her when i saved up enough points i'd get her the full size moisturizer so I did and she was so happy. She uses it morning and night and it makes her skin look dewy. I love it. I tried some and I thought it was very nice not too thick not too thin

Amazing
Sampled

I received this as a sample in one of my birchboxes, and WOW! I fell in love!

I am not a big skincare regime kind of girl, but this peaked my curiosity and I am so glad it did! I tried it one day and I've never looked back - it is the best primer I've ever used! It makes my skin look and feel great, and it lasts quite awhile as well. I use Korres mineral foundation/powder and it looks great after I apply this first.

The smell is also very subtle and pretty.

It really does minimise pores.

I wish I had the larger jar of this product. I see a subtle difference in my pores. It is soothing under my eyes also!

Love Love Love

I fell in love with this as a sample and decided to purchase. This has become a must in my daily face regimen which is saying a lot since I previously did not have one. I am very low maintence and usually do not even wear a foundation, powder, CC, BB or whatever for facial cover nor do I do much more for my eyes than mascara and liner due to my sensitive skin. After the shower every morning - this is the first thing on my face. It feels great, it smells great, and is great just to take away some of the shine. I have noticed my pores are looking much better as well, and redness is greatly reduced. An all around win for me!

So very good
Purchased

I received this product as a sample in one of my Birchboxes. It smells like heaven (a very mild, herbal, clean scent). It is applies like silk and leaves your skill feeling soft, supple and perfectly prepared for foundation. I loved the sample so much, that I ordered the full sized product. I am a FRUGAL shopper, so you know if I purchased this product (it is a bit pricy), it must be awesome. The only reason I gave this Sublime Essence 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the price.

What is this supposed to do again?

While this serum had no adverse affect on my skin, it didn't do anything to benefit it either. Nice scent, quickly absorbed, but that was about it.

smooth application

the scent was very subtle. it definitely made my skin look smoother and the applicator was not rough on my delicate skin. i wish the sample was a little larger but the amount that I used was noticable. an excellent product.

Best Product Ever
Purchased

Got this as a sample earlier so I decided to buy it despite the high price tag. Best thing to put on my face before I put anything else on. I have really seen a difference.

Good primer

I am 27 and have some fine lines around my eyes and forehead. I used this as a light primer and it helped immensely with covering fine lines on my forehead, but seemed to make it worse around my eyes. It is light and feels like you're not gooping up your face and clogging your pores. That is nice.
