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 Divine Cream. With its smooth texture, the Divine Cream melts deliciously into the skin, giving a sensation of supreme comfort. To visibly correct all signs of ageing, for beautiful, younger-looking skin.
The cream's key ingredient Immortelle is known as the everlasting flower: it never fades, even after it has been picked. Its organic essential oil is rich in active molecules with unique anti-ageing properties. The Divine cream is also made up of Marsh Clover, Myrtle, Honey, Bellis Perennis, Hyaluronic Acid, Evening Primrose Oil and Camelina oil – all working together to visibly reduce wrinkles and reveal the skin's radiance.

"In the past, my skincare routine has been a bit haphazard. I will happily try new products but often don’t think enough about whether they are suitable for my skin and if they are actually achieving any visible results.
"L'Occitane's Divine Cream is like a little pot of sunshine – literally. I look forward to applying it morning and night. The cream has a richness that makes it perfect for bed-time use yet it is light enough to apply as a day-time moisturiser. It helps, too, that the scent is so heavenly – you are immediately transported to Provence as you breathe in all the heady floral, woody smells associated with the South of France.
"As I've got older, I've increasingly noticed a lack of elasticity and dryness in my skin, and it is a relief to find a product that combines both science and natural plant extracts to tackle these issues as well as wrinkles and loss of firmness.

"The Divine Cream contains the legendary Corsican immortelle flower (fittingly, the Latin name Helichrysum means golden sun!), which is especially harvested for L'Occitane on the island of Corisca and is the only variety in the world that contains an effective high concentration of neryl acetate. Neryl acetate is the key molecule in immortelle essential oil used in the Divine cream. It boosts microcirculation, collagen production and protects from free radicals. The natural anti-ageing properties of the plant are enhanced by a complex of 7 active ingredients, which target the heart of skin cells and combats metabolic and replicative cellular ageing.
"I've noticed a new radiance and softness to my skin. It also feels plumper and fine lines have faded, producing a more even complexion. The Divine Cream definitely agrees with my combination skin, too, as I am less prone to unsightly break-outs. It’s my new secret weapon!"
