My experience with L’Occitane Divine Extract Ultimate Youth Serum:-

L'Occitane-Divine-Extract-Youth Serum

This divine serum has water-based creamy consistency towards runny. It has an overpowering smell which takes time to fade to a tolerable level. The smell reminds me of Vicks fumes which I totally dislike.

The texture is smooth which goes invisible in a single touch but it takes its own time to get absorbed completely into the skin. Also, it leaves slight sticky feel on the face which was least expected from a serum which is meant to melt into the skin quickly. The sticky feel is gone in few more minutes the as the serum gets soaked deep into the skin cells and get those lazy bums back to work. It gives a firm feel to skin instantly which will take weeks by regular creams to give this effect. The serum makes the skin feel velvety smooth by filling in the wrinkles and uneven texture. Skin appear noticeably brighter and better with the first use.  It may not be the best thing for oily skin due to initial sticky feel but works amazingly well for my dry skin.

Pros of L’Occitane Divine Extract Ultimate Youth Serum:-

  1. Slips nicely over face
  2. I need only tiny amount for single application
  3. Moisturizing to my dry skin
  4. Starts working from day one on improving the skin texture
  5. Makes skin velvety smooth
  6. Skin appears firmer
  7. Free from Parabens and other chemicals

Cons of L’Occitane Divine Extract Ultimate Youth Serum:-

  1. Damn Expensive
  2. Takes time to get absorbed
  3. Strong medicinal scent can give headaches to sensitive noses
  4. Feels sticky initially

Recommendation:- L’Occitane Divine Extract Ultimate Youth Serum has been the most effective skin care product I have used as it shows improvement in skin’s texture from first application, giving an instant firm feeling to face. It slips nicely over the face but the serum takes time even more than the night cream to get absorbed which can be a drawback as serum should have penetrated faster into the skin. Also, I dislike it’s strong Vicks kinds smell. Though its herbal but I like other products from this range which have mild and pleasant smell.

The serum is effective in giving an immediate plumping effect to the skin but couldn’t really comment on its long term benefits on wrinkles, pigmentation and dark spots reduction as the sample gave only 5-6 applications


Rating:- 3.8/5
