L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream Overview
L’Occitane en Provence is a French skin care company based on the principles of natural, aromatic, essential oils and rich emollients to provide the best care you can buy for healthy, young-looking skin. The Immortelle line gets its name from the “everlasting flower” of the same name. The Immortelle flower retains its color and shape even after being dried. By far, one of the most popular products in this line is the L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream.
L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream is by far one of the most popular products in the line, and it has recently been improved using a second patented ingredient. The original formula was already rich, creamy, nourishing, luxurious, and easily absorbed. Now the new immortelle extract boosts your skin’s ability to smooth out deep wrinkles and increase elasticity.
As we previously mentioned, the L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream formula relies heavily on essential oils to provide nourishment for your skin. There’s:
- Grape Seed Oil
- Sunflower Seed Oil
- Rosemary Leaf Extract
- Evening Primrose Oil
- Immortelle Extract
It then goes on to add a good amount of antioxidants, mainly in the form of Vitamin E. And all of this is in a rich, creamy, emollient base.
You should apply L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream on your face and neck after cleansing and toning either once or twice a day, morning and/or night.
L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream Pros and Cons
As with all things, there is good and bad when it comes to L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream. Comparing the two is a great way to help decide if it’s right for you.
Advantages of L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream
- Most L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream reviews are from happy customers who call the cream rich and luxurious, but highly absorbable, and with a great scent.
- There’s a boutique locator on the website.
- You can try samples at a L’Occitane en Provence boutique.

Where to Buy
The L’Occitane website has a boutique locator to help you determine whether or not you have a local supplier where you can try and buy L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream in person. Additionally, you can buy it online through a number of outlets, including the official website. Generally, the 1.7 oz jar sells for about $58. It runs for less at Amazon, but there is at least one review there commenting that the product may not be authentic. So, let the buyer beware.
In the end, we’d have to say that L’Occitane Immortelle Precious Cream is a nice, hydrating and nourishing cream best for dry to very dry skin. Beyond that, the lack of many specific anti-aging ingredients and the jar packaging make it hard to recommend. So, for the money, we would point you in a different direction.
