This is my favorite summer facial cleanser. I have that kind of skin that is "normal" during spring, fall and winter, but needs a soapier cleanser in the summer. We have very hot, humid summers. Packaging is outstanding because L'Occitane sells a refill plastic bag that I can pour into my dispenser. The dispenser is made out of lightweight, but sturdy, plastic with a tight fitting clear cap. The bottle is a beautiful cobalt blue which looks very pretty on my bathroom counter, too. It has the kind of pump nozzle that makes the product come out as a soft, bubbly foam. The smell is delicate immortelle flowers - kind of like a meadow filled with wild daisies. This scent lasts for the duration of the wash, but doesn't linger or interfere with the scent of my fragrance. The cleanser does a good job getting off all my makeup and sunscreen every evening. I use it with a warm, wet warmcloth.
L'occitane makes some excellent products. I've been a fan of their lavender hand cream for some time. This is the first time I've tried their facial care, and I was very impressed with this cleanser. The pump bottle dispenses a light foam- I found two pumps to be adequate for the face. I smoothed this cleanser on and rinsed it off, and my face felt fantastic. This cleanser is absolutely gentle, and yet cleaned my face of oil and grime effectively. This cleanser also smells delicious. I've never smelled an immortelle flower, but this cleanser smells like a field of wildflowers: blooms, stems, grass, and all. It smells fresh, not cloying or overwhelming, while still being floral. I love this cleanser, and will absolutely purchase more when this runs out. I also intend to try the immortelle night cream.
I love the foam and its a gentle cleanser. I used it for a year. Doesn't cause any allergies. However for oily combination skin like mine it doesnt help much to tighten pores etc. I still enjoy the texture etc but decided to get the loccitane ultrafoaming citron cleanser since I recently had a breakout due to using l'occitane divine lotion.
This product is pretty awesome, albeit expensive. I love foaming cleansers that rinse away dirt, grime, and makeup without stripping my face. Many foaming cleansers leave my face feeling dry and tight. This cleanser does not. It smells delicious, foams nicely, rinses away easily, and does not leave a residue or strip the face. This is really the perfect foaming cleanser those who like a good cleaning without the dryness and tightness that accompanies other products. I will continue to purchase this product in the future.
I got this as a sample and nearly finished with it and i use it in conjunction with other cleanser so i don't know its real qualtity BUT this was better than my acne soap. It reduced my acne not to dramatic results but it did clear my face more. Its pretty gentle on the skin and did improve my skin but it isn't a miracle cleanser so i won't buy it again. But its better than most drug store cleansers ive used
Love love love!!! I've very sentive skin...this cleanser is the best!!!
L'Occitane has a 50% off sale on some of there items right now plus a 10% discount coupon was emailed to me in the mail, so I bought this cleanser with the Summer Skin Set.
I have been using this cleanser for about 3 days and let me tell you I have already noticed a HUGE difference! My face has a slight glow and my skin is more soft!
I actually love using this product as it feels refreshing and I love the smell because it DOESN'T smell like CHEMICALS! It smells like a little old French lady made it from ingredients in her garden!
The price is redic but I can get away with using one pump as a little bit goes a long way. I love it.. I think L'Occitane has a new victim!
I bought this foam cleanser after my friend said it leaves your skin very soft and smooth after usage. The foam is very fluffy and gentle on my face. It smells nice and light too. After using it, my face does feel soft and smooth (but I'm sure other cheaper cleansers will do the same too). I bought the cleanser at SGD$45, and it has lasted me 3-4 months as I use it twice a day. It comes in a hygienic pump, but if I take the cleanser overseas, the product might leak out from the base of the pump (which doesn't seem tightly fit). I don't feel that the product has "brightened" my face though it claims to have done so for over 90% of women. Will not repurchase because I believe there are cheaper cleansers out there that will clean my face and leave it feeling soft.
This wash is absolutely lovely on the skin. Recently I have been plagued with some hormonal pimples and spots around my lower cheeks and jaw area, and this wash has definitely had a positive impact on my skin. I have been using this for almost 2 months now and the results are fantastic! My skin, even before moisturiser, feels smooth and hydrated, and there are no signs of flakes and no feeling of dryness, common faults in most acne cleansers. I also have noticed a significant improvement in my skin clearing up. This product really makes my skin feel and look great, while I am not 100% sure about the "brightening" properties of this wash, it is a very nice daily cleanser anyway.
Feels fantastic upon use; while washing my face it feels foamy, light, and has a nice scent.
Doesn't leave your skin dry and irritated.
Washes away makeup, incase you forgot to wipe it away prior to washing, and won't leave nasty makeup residue.
Pump is easy to use.
Foams up really well, doesn't water down on contact with skin.
Hasn't caused any new pimples to form on my face, and the ones I have are almost gone.
Maybe a little pricey for some, $44 in David Jones (L'Occitane was out of stock).
Scent can be powerful at first, but it isn't chemical like other cleansers, more herbal gardeny.
An amazing cleanser!
I have used so many bottles that I lost count. My HG! Doesnt leave my skin tight and dry after cleaning.
