L'Occitane Immortelle Cleansing Foam


While my mother is a big fan of L'Occitane's Immortelle skin care line, none of the creams has ever worked for me (this range is designated for mature skin, and I'm not quite there yet). This means I didn't have a good reason to buy their cleansing foam, other than the packaging: I picked it up months ago when I needed a travel-friendly cleanser, and the 5.1 oz pump bottle looked just about right.

I used it for the two weeks I was away in June and loved it. Then I put my travel bag away and promptly forgot about it until this week when I had to pack again. That was one happy reunion.

Everything about this foam is fabulous: the delicate scent, a light and airy texture, and most of all: performance. I find that it removes every last trace of makeup, including stubborn mascara (hello, Givenchy!), while giving my face the softest feel. There's no need for a once-over with a toner and my face doesn't scream for mercy afterwards.

I don't know about the promise for brightening: A product that you wash off quickly can't do much in that department. But I can tell you that it does my skin a world of good in the softness and smoothness department, and I love that it's the first and last stop I need for cleansing and makeup removing.

L'Occiatne Immortelle Cleansing Foam ($24) is available online and from every L'Occitane store. I bought mine at my local mall.

  1. Like you, I also haven't had much luck with their creams, but if my store has a travel size, I'll pick it up and give it a try!

  2. OK, I tried the cleansing foam (got a travel size) and I also got a travel size of the mask (which is supposed to exfoliate and whiten, I guess) - I love them both! Wow! Used last night and woke up with skin that looked muck clearer, softer! We'll see how it goes on a regular basis. Thanks for the review!

  3. geesh, again! I need to review my remarks before posting. my skin looks "much clearer" not "muck clearer" (of course, mucky skin would not be clear).
