Beauty spree with L'Occitane

By Mahima Agarwal

L'Occitane En Provence is one skincare brand that I personally adore- one, for the fresh, natural ingredients and two, for the goodness of exotic french Flowers that its products come with. Luxe Point India was recently invited to its roadshow at the DLF Promenade, Vasant Kunj where I got to try some of its products and services. L'Occitane had set up a fun booth in the main atrium of the mall with interesting activities lined up for the visitors.

One of the fun thing that I got to was throw a coin in a pretty wishing well and make a customary wish with the drop. After making the wish, the visitors could win L'Occitane goodies or a hand massage at the counter. I got lucky enough to win the newly launched L'Occitane Arlestenne Velvet Handcream (perfect for winters, by the way, and my staple currently). Next up was the Photo booth with a cute sunny yellow bicycle loaded with flowers and signboards with beauty resolutions! All one had to do was log in to his/her Facebook Account, LIKE Loccitane India's Facebook Page and voila- another L'Occitane goodie is coming your way. The pictures were uploaded on the Facebook page and you could also take home an instant physical copy as a souvenir. 

I was also handed some of the products to sample, after a skin consultation by the brand's expert at its store in the mall. I have been using them for almost a week and here's my experience in a nutshell. I am cursed with perpetually oily skin and it has always been one of my greatest concerns while choosing my skin products. The Ultra Matte Fluid by L'Occitane helped me get rid of that unwanted oily sheen on my face without making it look completely dry. It left the skin hydrated and soft but oil-free in appearance. The Immortelle Essential Water comes in a convenient spray bottle and is an refreshing skin toner, that keeps dirt and oil away. Like a majority of L'Occitane products, the Immortelle Brightening Essence smells amazing and gets absorbed by the skin immediately, giving a much better complexion instantly.
