L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Eyes

This is now Mother Manface’s absolute favourite product, and when it comes to cosmetics, she’s a hard woman to please and for someone in her mid fifties, keeping her eyes smooth, fresh and bright is hugely important – as it is for me, and I’m assuming, most of you! I will say now, before you read on, that this is one of the most impressive formulations I’ve ever come across, the technology that has gone into this is astounding. If your concern is ageing, then this is 100% for you.

L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Eyes utilises the same Immortelle technology as in the rest of the range. The Royal Pharmaceutical Society’s Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology in an article on Anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of Helichrysum italicum, concludes that Imortelle extract induced a corticoid-like mechanism, acting as an anti-inflamatory as well as free-radical scavenger.

Basically, skin is kept calmed and free-radicals within the skin are encased, preventing them from causing cellular damage on both a surface and sebaceous level.

So, back to the product – it comes out the bottle as an ever so slightly pearlised gel / cream with the same fragrance as the rest of the range, that is really growing on me. Only depress the pump a little, otherwise you’ll end up with half the bottle on your fingers.

You don’t need much at all, and using your ring finger, pat it around the orbital bone, the skin will then pull in the juicy moisture. Your eyes don’t look shiny and full of product, as this sinks in straight away, and nestles in your skin, juicing up those tired cells. Fatty Omega acids sink in and bind moisture to skin cells, maintaining your natural moisture barrier and keeping skin healthy.

Both me, and mother Manface – more so in fact, have incredibly sensitive eyes, I guess I have her to thank for that. L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Eyes causes no tingling (which often leads to a full-blown red eruption) and in fact soothes the lids and eye area. It feels beautifully watery on the skin as it begins to sink in, and two things start to happen. Firstly, skin seems to go ‘ahhh’, heaving a sigh of relief as this beautiful shot of non-greasy moisture penetrates the stratum corneum. Secondly eyes look immediately brightened, seriously!

What I didn’t realise until I sat down to write this, after I looked up on their website, it utilises SIRT-1 technology. Now I’ve been a long-standing fan of SIR-2 (Sirtuin) technology. a protein strain that slows down the ageing process of a cell, helping to prolong life, conserving cell energy, keeping them bouncy and juicy for longer. SIR-1 technology produces similar effects, reducing how much energy a cell needs to consume, further prolonging its life, as well as acting as an anti-inflammatory.

After just under 2 months of use, Mother Manface has seen massive improvement in the appearance of lines, wrinkles and skin brightness. Don’t just take our word for it though, on the L’Occitane site, there were 15 reviews with customers rating on average 4 / 5 stars!

Stunning, innovative, a huge favourite.
