L’Occitane is a line of high quality body care, skincare and fragrance products made from organic essential oil and shea butter. I’ve reviewed a couple of their products – many of which are L’Occitane best sellers – and for the convenience of my readers, I’m summarizing and consolidating them under one single post here.
I have received several emails regarding the right order to apply skin care products especially regarding prescription topicals and here are information from two sources I have gathered.
The first, is from the book “Your Future Face” by Dr Dennis Gross, who is a dermatologist as well as the founder of the M.D. Skincare product line. According to Dr Gross, one of the keys to maximizing the benefits of any product in our daily skincare regimen is to apply products with a thinner consistency before the thicker more creamy ones, no matter what their active ingredients are. This is because products with heavy consistencies can block lighter-weight ones from penetrating the skin and doing their job.
I grew up hating to eat oats and would never take a second look at this foodstuff even though I’m aware that oats are nutritious and are good for our health, with over 40 studies showing that eating oatmeal may help lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. However, I recently developed an interest in them after learning from my husband that eating oats can help to reduce weight.
There is really no shortage of skincare products that promise Asian women brighter and whiter skin with a more even-toned complexion. Just last week, I received two mailers from L’Occitane and Kiehl’s promising that and a check on their websites seems to point to the fact that these are developed more for Asian skin.

Besides the direct mailing here, the new L’Occitane Immortelle Brightening Skincare range which consists of a Brightening Renewing Serum, a Brightening Smoothing Exfoliator and a Brightening Toner was seen to take a more prominent display on the websites in markets like Japan, Korea, Taiwan and Hong Kong.
