In today’s selfie-obsessed age, when it comes to skincare, we are all after the holy grail of flawless looking skin – free from imperfections, smooth and radiant. With or without make-up, there's nothing more confidence-boosting than not having to use a filter.
Thankfully, help has arrived from luxury beauty brand L'Occitane, who have created an innovative skincare range including the luxurious Precious cream, ideal for tackling the first signs of ageing.
This silky cream is formulated with skin firming Immortelle plant extracts to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles for skin that ultimately looks smoother and more supple.

"In my third trimester of pregnancy and having just turned 40, I have noticed my skin has become much dryer in recent months and some wrinkles are starting to appear. The dreaded middle ages are finally on my doorstep!
"Whereas I could get away with a light daily moisturiser in the past, I now need something a little more concentrated with active ingredients to give me youthful results. Being pregnant, I’m also more aware of the chemicals I put onto my skin, so I wanted to find a new regime that would deliver benefits from natural ingredients – with no nasty chemicals.
"Thank goodness for L’Occitane’s Precious Cream, which has become my new secret weapon in tackling both wrinkles and dryness.
"Using a special extraction process, the L’Occitane lab has taken a unique oily extract from the heart of an extraordinary flower, grown on the island of Corsica called Immortelle. The cream is not too heavy to apply meaning it is easily absorbed, giving benefits faster, plus it smells divine."

"Furthermore, instead of depleting Corsica of its precious Immortelle flower, in 2004 L’Occitane launched a plantation programme and now the flowers are farmed organically to protect the environment and encourage biodiversity. So I feel pleased to be supporting such an eco-friendly product – and looking younger in the process. That’s Precious."
