Hey my sweetpeas 🙂
As you already know, my favourite luxury skincare brand is definitely L’Occitane and when they came out with this extremely well-praised CC cream in India from their pivone or peony range *which has my all time signature peony edt btw* I had to give it a try! Err..no peeking at the price now or am sure you might close the page before you begin :-/*
Read on to know more!
What L’Occitane Says:
Combining skin-perfecting peony extract with unifying CC pigments and illuminating pearly particles, this light velvety hydrating and protecting cream immediately create perfect-looking skin. The complexion is even, fresh and luminous. Use as a smoothing, illuminating make-up base or on its own for a natural make-up-free look. The silky texture transforms on contact with the skin, giving it a natural finish. The complexion looks even and luminous. Skin irregularities appear concealed.
L’OCCITANE has extracted from peonies growing in the Drôme Region of France, a perfecting concentrate. Rich in natural plant sugars, this patented extract acts on skin cells to help visibly correct complexion and texture irregularities.

L’Occitane CC Skin Tone Perfecting Cream in Shade “Light” SPF20 Review :
The peony range stuff always comes packaged in pink/red packaging and this one is no exception 😀 It comes in a cute red plastic tube with a silver cap and nozzle-end dispenser which makes it easy to dispense and of course, convenient to carry around.
L’Occitane CC cream is white in color *my shade is light, another darker shade is available* and a lovely, light and silky texture which can be massaged into skin very easily and gets instantly absorbed. 🙂 It leaves neither any white cast behind on skin nor heavy, greasy feel. Skin feels silky and fresh. 🙂 My complexion looks instantly improved and brighter *not fairer!*
Coverage wise, it offers quite a sheer coverage and I am totally okay with that, but if you do desire heavier coverage for skin imperfections, using a base/concealer is necessary. I just love how it makes my skin look fresh and bright in a very natural no-makeup way. <3
The peony fragrance is very light, floral and totally beautiful and does last a while before melting away!
Since its not sweaty summer yet, I don’t know the accurate lasting power of this cream and right now it lasts on me almost all day! And ohh it comes with a SPF of 20 so yayiee!

Do I recommend?
Hehe being a L’Occitane fan, I wish I had money to get everything they make, am so much in love. 😀 Till now, the only thing I consistently can afford is the EDT from peony range and if this CC cream keeps working this way, this could be my second indulgence. 😉 Do try it out if you covet fresher, brighter skin like I do!
So that’s all for now! More stuff from L’occitane coming up soon! *_* till then, ciao and mwahhss

[alert-note]It kind of sounds like Kaya CC Cream to me Agni. Could be better of course, but if you want to try a cheaper CC Cream with similar effect on skin you can try that one. 😉 [/alert-note]
