L’Occitane’s Peony line has reintroduced some new skincare that aims at perfecting and hydrating uneven skin tone and comes in gorgeous packaging.
The Peony Perfecting Essence ($48; usa.loccitane.com) is a serum/primer in one that can be worn alone, under moisturizer or as a makeup primer with skin benefits. I absolutely love it as a primer, since it makes skin super soft, velvety smooth and quite matte. The scent is fabulous and I only need a couple of pumps for my face and neck. It sinks in instantly and leaves a soft finish with a little bit of a glow. I do find that my skin looks fresher and my pores look smaller after application and makeup goes on easier!
The Peony Perfecting Mist ($24; usa.loccitane.com) is mid-day skin refresher that feels light and perks up tired skin. It is lightly scented and I’ve been using it quite a lot and not even 1/4th of my way through the bottle yet. I pop it into the fridge for extra zing and it feels amazing! I haven’t tried it as a mist to fix makeup, but it does not rub makeup off when used over it and when used on bare skin, instantly refreshes and hydrates.
