      A seriously luxurious day cream to help soften and plump the skin

      I had read good things about L'occitane's Immortelle Precious range in many a magazine and was very curious to try the day cream for myself. Buying one was a real treat as, at approximately 45GBP per 50ml pot, it was the most expensive moisturiser I'd ever purchased! I'm a Caucasian female in the 20-25 year old bracket with a dry and sensitive skin type.
      The wow factor ingredient in this cream is Immortelle flower extract, which is said to target skin concerns such as lines, wrinkles and a lack of firmness. Because the main active ingredient is plant based, I didn't have any major concerns using this cream, despite the fact that I am not in an age group who generally suffer from deep wrinkles.
      The first thing I noticed when I used the cream was its luxuriously rich texture. Although it is specifically a day cream, to me it felt more like a night cream, which isn't a bad thing as it means a little goes a long way and I can make my pot last longer!
      The smell of the cream is hard to describe. In my opinion it's somewhere between a green floral and slightly herbal scent. Either way, it is a very pleasant, refreshing smell.
      The cream didn't take long to sink into my skin and as soon as it had, I touched my face and could feel the boost of moisture it had provided. My skin felt soft, supple and bouncy. As someone with a sensitive skin type, I was happy enough when there was no stinging or tingling feeling upon application, but this cream actually went one further and left my skin feeling cooled and calmed.
      After a week of use I could see a visible improvement in the texture of my skin. The problem areas around my nose, chin and forehead were a lot less flakey and my skin appeared generally healthier.
      Because of the cream's price, richness, and how effectively it moisturises my skin, I now only apply it around once or twice a week. For me, it's a fantastically reliable go-to product for when I have a sudden flare up of sensitivity or dryness, as I know it will help to re-balance my upset skin.
      It is worth mentioning that there is also a version of this day cream which includes an SPF of 15, but because the primer I use has a high SPF I purchased the regular one.
      Finally, the one complaint I have about this product is that it didn't (when I made my purchase) come with a little spatula to scoop the product out with. There were spatulas in the branch of L'occitane that I visited, though the sales assistant told me that they weren't for sale. For the price, I would have loved to have been provided with one, as it would have allowed me to have applied the product in a more hygienic way and avoid any chances of contaminating the cream with dirty fingers.
