Assalamualaikum and hello.
I got to know 2 new products from L'OCCITANE a few weeks back at an event in Delectable by Su in Glasshouse and I am stoked to share with you the review of these 2 newbies. They are the new addition of the Reine Blanche range which is focused on preserving skin radiance and brightening up skin complexion for a youthful look. The main ingredients of this range is Organic Reine Des Pres flowers (Meadowsweet), where the flower's petals will turn whiter over time. It starts of with creamy shade then it will turn to pure white that in the end will contribute to a more illuminated skin. Through L'OCCITANE experiments and lab work, they created Reine Blanche complex which includes natural salicylic acid (mild exfoliator), mulberry root extract and Vitamin C. Reine Blanche range has a total of 7 products, including the 2 new products. So now, let's get to know the new 2 products which are the L'OCCITANE Reine Blanche Whitening Sleeping Mask and Illuminating Eye Care & Mask.

L'OCCITANE Reine Blanche Whitening Sleeping Mask
Size / Weight : 100ml
Price : RM 333
L'OCCITANE Reine Blanche Whitening Sleeping Mask is a gel-cream that is created to be used during sleep time because that is how the product activates and gives the best result. It contains a new ingredient call Scuttelaria Baicalensis which helps to fight damages caused by daily aggressions such as pollution. Polluted air and water is no joke because they are dangerous and harmful to not just our health but also to our skin. That is why prevention method is vital to ensure that our skin protected through out our lives.
I used one scoop (using the given spatula in the box) to massage all over my face. You need to apply the sleeping mask quite thick because you need to really massage it into your skin. I usually take about 5 minutes to massage the product into my skin. It's important to take your time while doing this routine because it will determine the best result for your skin. The gel-cream texture of this sleeping mask is cooling and it feels fresh when applied on the skin. Since it is a sleeping mask, it does feel a bit greasy but it doesn't feel to heavy on the skin. The key is to massage deeply into skin and not just lather all over your face. I use the sleeping mask twice or 3 times a week and I can feel such a difference on my skin. When I woke up the next day, my skin feels bouncy, supple and smooth. I love the idea of touching my face in the morning because I feel like I always have good skin in the morning. When I wash my face in the morning, there is a residue of the sleeping mask, sort of a protective film that helps to keep my skin from harmful aggressions. I just wash off my face and feel like the sleeping mask is successfully absorbed into my skin. As far for whitening of the skin, I need to use this product longer to see result, but I surely believe that my skin has become brighter and more even out skin tone. I also love the subtle floral scent because it is calming and relaxing. It does feel like I'm in a spa whenever I use it!
L'OCCITANE Reine Blanche
Illuminating Eye Care & Mask
Size / Weight : 15ml
Price : RM 193
Together with Reine Des Pres flowers, L'OCCITANE Reine Blanche Illuminating Eye Care & Mask also has caffein as one of it's ingredients to combat puffiness. I am always in the hunt of a good eye cream because being a mom, my dark circles and eyebags are becoming my best friend. It is no fun to have dark eye circles because then you will need to cover it up using make up. This eye product is designed for daily use and also for a mask routine.
I love the expert massaging applicator because it helps to stimulate the micro-circulation of the eye area. You want to get a better sensation while using this? Pop this eye gel in the fridge and experience the cooling sensation that will help you to combat puffiness especially if you went to bed late the night before. It's so refreshing, I really love this method! The product has a light gel texture to it and it absorbs quite fast. I prefer to use it as daily use but for extra effectiveness, you can use this as a mask where you need to apply a thick layer under your eye (focusing on your dark circle) and leave it on for 10 minutes. Wipe off the excess product but do not rinse it with water. Let the eye gel soaks into your skin. I feel a light tingling sensation whenever I use this eye gel. It sorts of tighten up the skin under my eyes and I can feel it is doing it's job. Most eye care product is something that takes longer time to see result. As for this eye care & mask, I really love the cooling applicator and the tingling sensation. I can feel that my under eye has become a bit more hydrated and I really hope that the wrinkle under my eyes will reduce with prolonged use.
