Best In Beauty 2013
I was extremely lucky to be invited to trial this gorgeous eye cream...which is truly divine by name and nature.
It is packaged in a stunning yellow, sturdy glass jar with a pump dispenser, which dispenses the perfect amount of eye cream, so there's no wastage.
The cream smells lovely. And the texture is quite thick. I always rub the product together in my fingertips to warm it slightly, this allows for easier application, I then pat very gently around my entire eye area. The cream is luscious and although the majority absorbs, there's always some leftover that keeps my eyes hydrated all night. And then in the morning, this little extra product kept my eyes hydrated when I applied my concealer and powder, keeping my eye area looking healthy and plumped.
The bottle lasts forever because you only need the tiniest amount for both eyes, so although the eye cream is really expensive, if you can afford the original outlay...it is worth it.
My eyes improved noticeably to me...my dark circles diminished and my fine lines looked a lot better...my deeper lines didn't change much but overall I was happy with the improvements I could see...

Eye-m in Heaven!!!
L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Eyes is packaged in a very attractive, shiny gold box that is adorned by the L’Occitane logo. Inside the box there is a information booklet that contains hints/tips on how to get the most out of all the ‘Divine’ products; Divine Extract/Serum, Face Moisturiser and Eye Cream. It also has interesting facts on the Immortelle flower that is a main ingredient in the L’Occitane Immortelle products. Also inside the box is the L’Occitane Divine Eyes, which is housed in an opaque yellow glass bottle, very sturdy and will definitely withstand travelling without breaking. The bottle is topped off with a deluxe gold cap, that when removed shows off a matching gold pump dispenser. A great addition to the pump dispenser is that it has the ability to be off/locked, an extra precaution against spillage. So when you use it the pump dispenser just needs to be turned to the on/unlock position. The pump dispenser is also created to avoid any product wastage, I find the amount of pressure that is placed on the pump dictates the amount of cream that will be dispensed, I love this, and it is practically fool-proof for me. I panicked quite a bit when I received this eye serum/cream and realised that it was supposed to last me at least 2 months to cover the trial period, as the bottle is a tiny 15ml (retails for $89). But I needn’t have worried, there is ample for that amount of time plus longer. The eye cream is a consistency that lies between a serum and a cream, thin and light like a serum but some of the denseness of a cream. This exact texture made applying the eye cream so easy. It’s a pearly white colour and has the familiar Immortelle flower and Myrtle Essential Oil scent, although I do find the eye cream is more subtle in its aroma compared to the face serum and face cream. The instructions say to place 1-2 pumps onto your fingertips (middle 3 fingers) and warm the product between the fingers to allow easier application, and then pat the cream around the entire eye area until absorbed. I also pat the leftover cream into my 11’s and the area just above my eyebrows. I find that 1 pump is ample to do all these areas generously. That’s why I say that the 15ml bottle really is more than you think, I’ve been using it twice a day, every day for 2 months and I have approximately just under ½ bottle left. That is so good! The eye cream gives my eyes an immediate revitalising burst, cooling and refreshing them on contact. I find my eye area feels so hydrated after application. Even when I apply it as part of my night routine, my eye area is still moist and smooth to the touch when I wake up the following morning. I love how this cream absorbs but not completely, it still leaves a slight layer of moisture, which I know I need. I find this characteristic actually aids my eye makeup application; it keeps my eyes looking and feeling hydrated and fresh even after I’ve applied my concealer and my eye primer, this is an area I sometimes have trouble with. I’m 42 and have really dry skin and a few deeper wrinkles around my eyes and I find if my eye area isn’t hydrated enough my eye makeup will actually sit in my lines and make me look older. I have had no negative reactions to the eye cream, no watering or stinging eyes, which is a huge plus. I have noticed improvements in my deeper wrinkles and more so the sagginess that I am starting to get on my upper eye lids has changed for the better quite markedly. My finer lines have decreased quite a bit too but one surprise for me is the difference in my dark circles. I have dark circles and have had them for as long as I can remember, I’ve used so many different creams/serums/brands that offer help and results, but that haven’t delivered. This eye cream has made a positive difference, my dark circles are noticeably lighter and for that I’m so grateful. And thankfully, I still have almost ½ a bottle to keep using, so hopefully the results will continue to increase.
Thankyou so much Beautyheaven for the chance to trial the entire L’Occitane Immortelle Divine range, I’ve never felt so pampered and special.

Trial Team - divine eyes
Of the three exquisite products I received for the trial, this was the el supremo, the one I loved the most, and the one that continues to work major miracles on my 56 year old eyes. I’ve lost count of the eye creams and serums I’ve tried (and the dollars I’ve spent) in the last 10 years – sure there’s been some hydration and smoothing benefits especially from the more expensive brands, but nothing that really blew my skirt up enough to keep me faithful to one product.
Thanks to beautyheaven and L’Occitane though, Divine Eyes and me are a match made on earth. The classy gold box says “Ultimate youth eye treatment”, and in my experience, this is a true statement. After 8 weeks I don’t quite have the eyes of a 40 year old, but I’m certainly seeing major improvements in the texture of the skin around my eyes, especially on the lids and the puffy hooded section. I should add that there was no mention in the instructions to use it on this delicate area, but after a few days of soothing applications around my eye with no irritation, I went for it. What a bonus – the crinkly crepey texture is visibly smoothing out, and the creases aren’t nearly as obvious either, I think because the skin is more plump and refined. My eyes are definitely more youthful looking, and I have a far more silky surface to work with when applying my eye makeup.
A miniature version of the face serum, the gorgeous, antiquity-inspired amber urn is the same colour as the main anti-ageing ingredient, the immortelle flower (I googled it), especially grown in Corsica, and combined with myrtle from the same region. L’Occitane are definitely onto something special with this recipe, and despite the recommended dose being “one or two pumps”, I’ve been seeing exceptional results with less than one. The pearly gel-cream is light and very easy to spread, and lends itself to a gentle massaging technique, but I stop before it has been completely absorbed. Unlike the face serum there’s barely any fragrance, but what is discernible is soft and pretty.
I saw changes in my skin texture after the first week, and the improvements have been ongoing ever since. I am thrilled with this heavenly product – it’s worthy of far more than 5 stars, and I will be eternally grateful for the opportunity to discover and experience it’s soothing, calming and regenerative powers. Would I buy it again? Definitely, in fact I already have – I don’t plan on *ever* running out of this little gem…

Genie in a Bottle!
First of all, I would just like to give the BH crew a bear worthy hug for letting me trial the very lush L'Occitane Immortelle range. It was such a privilege!
The mango coloured bottle is beautifully packaged with a crisp chrome pump. It screams classiness and freshens up any dull cabinet! The pump is also efficient as I'm able to contr how much product is being distributed. A wonderful surprise that I had discovered was that the pump could be twisted to lock itself! Curious toddlers will not be able to spill the $$$ content which is defiantly a plus! The packaging also comes in with a handy leaflet trust has clear instructions on HOW to apply the cream effectively to achieve the finest results.
The cliche 'a little goes a long way' defiantly applies to this rich cream as a pea size amount has the magnificent power to give my eyes a jaw dropping makeover. I experienced no irritations, especially the stinging/burning sensation that I've encountered many times in other skincare products but with this beauty, I incurred 0% pain. Personally, the scent was not powerful or pungent at all and it didn't linger on my skin. It has a very lightweight texture that is easy on the eye yet carries out on my expectation on what an anti aging cream should do. Literally my skin gulped the product down within seconds leaving a nice cooling effect.
During the first two weeks of religiously using the cream, I could already start to identify harsh lines softening and the eye area plumper and rejuvenated!
Previously, the inner corners of my eyes were so dry and cracked but when the little beauty came along. if immediately converted from flaky to supple! Also, I initially thought this was just to make my lines fade but it also reduced a fair bit of darkness under my eyes! Truly a heaven sent!
I was getting concern that when the content nearly finishes, how was the pump supposes to release the cream anymore? I did some googling and found out the answer was to get a Q tip and bend it inside the bottle to scrape off any remaining cream so no wastage occurs at all!
Over the course of more than a month, I instantly noticed drastic changes! When I grin or laugh my hyena laugh, my crow's feet are much less prominent and even my colleagues and friends has asked me if I've had some procedure done! Of course, I let them on the secret that L'Occitane is the genie in the bottle!

Lovely 'Divine Eyes'
I have been using this 'Ultimate youth eye treatment' in conjunction with the youth serum and Divine cream for the last 2 months.
The serum comes in a lovely 15ml glass bottle (which looks like a perfume bottle) and has a lockable pump top which is extremely useful when travelling. The product is a gel consistency and the fragrance is negligible (unlike the Divine cream).
I assumed that the pump would administer a measured dose, however I found that far too much product was dispensed when I first used it. I have since found that by pressing the pump down lightly I can administer about 1/4 of a pump which is ample for my eye area.
The serum is immediately absorbed into the delicate eye area and there was no evidence of greasiness etc when applying concealer etc during the day. In fact, I found that I needed to apply my eyecream aswell as I found that my concealer didn't blend well without it. The area around the eye is so delicate that I felt that the serum absorbed so quickly that I couldn't risk not adding the extra layer of eyecream.
L'Occitane state that the serum makes the area more radiant, the improves the texture, reduces dark circles and puffiness is diminished. Unfortunately I have not noticed a huge difference in my dark circles (oh the curse of genes!) but I have noticed that my eye area appears a little more radiant. Luckily I don't suffer too badly with fine lines around the eyes so I have not noticed too much of a difference there.
I liked this product, but I am unconvinced as to whether I will repurchase it due to the fact that I needed to use my normal eyecream for day. I will continue to use it at night in conjunction with the other 2 products as I believe that it works well on my skin better at that time.
Thanks BH and O'Occitane for the opportunity to trial these gorgeous products.

This eye treatment is part of L'Occitane's Immortelle Divine anti-aging range. The range also includes a serum and a face cream, but this is the only product that is used in the eye area. It is used in the evening and the morning.
I have never encountered a more beautifully packaged eye cream - the rounded yellow glass bottle is just gorgeous. The easy-to-use pump dispenser enables measured application with no mess or wastage.
The enclosed leaflet includes specific instructions for application to optimise results. The steps encompass the application of all 3 products of the range. Even if you only have the eye cream, the application directions for this is very effective for this delicate area, so make sure you read them!
It is suggested to use 1-2 pumps of the product, however I have found that half a pump is plenty. I estimate the bottle will last me 4-5 months in total at this rate of usage.
The cream is light and instantly absorbed - perfect for the eye area. I have found my eye area looks more hydrated, with fine lines definitely softened. The texture looks smoother and younger. My deeper wrinkles are still there, but the overall look of the area has improved. It is definitely the best eye cream I have used and I will be purchasing it in the future.

A lovely eye treatment
I was thrilled to receive this product together with the matching serum and moisturiser as I had not tried L'Occitane's skincare before. Having enjoyed the hand creams and soaps, I was keen to see how this skincare stacks up against other high end brands, given the high price range.
The eye treatment comes in a beautifully packaged gold box with the L'Occitane navy logo and print. The bottle is a smaller version of the serum as it is 15 ml but has the same shape, colour and top. It looks very cute and, again, very much like a perfume bottle. There is a pump to dispense the product which is a fresh gel-cream that penetrates quickly into the skin.
L'Occitane claims that the anti-wrinkle effect is powerful given the results of 53 women over 4 weeks (more radiance, eye area texture is visibly improved with smoother skin and puffiness and dark circles diminished). The company also claims that the ingredients which include organic Immortelle and Myrtle essential oils as well as high levels of omega 3 and 6 fatty acids will help fight th e signs of ageing and enhance the eye contour area.
Having used the treatment twice a day for nearly 2 months I can attest to some of the benefits, but not all. I adore the texture of the treatment and found the delicate eye contour area to be softer and clearer. However, I did not find it as hydrating as I like in an eye treatment but this could be due to trialling it during the cold winter months. Accordingly I gave it only 4 stars. I think it would be ideal for the warmer months as it is very refreshing and light weight. I do not tend to have puffiness or dark circles so I cannot comment how effective this product is with regard to these issues. I did not notice and reduction in the appearance of the fine lines around my eyes.
Overall my opinion is that this is one of the loveliest eye treatments I have used at the high end price range and do recommend it if you can afford it. After 2 months I still have half a bottle left, so it does provide excellent value.

A Divine eye cream
Thank you so much to BH and L’Occitane for giving me the opportunity to try out the L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Eyes.
At the age of 40, I am starting to see an increasing number of lines and wrinkles, as well as an increasing amount of sun spots and pigmentation, and there is no denying that the bags under my eyes are unfortunately also getting bigger.
I used the Eye cream in connection with the L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Extract Youth Serum and the L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream, so how this eye cream has improved my skin around the eyes over the weeks I’ve used it, is of course also be thanks to the serum and the cream.
The Divine Eye Cream claims to rejuvenate the skin, making the skin visibly firmer and more youthful and radiant, with the eyes looking less tired and dark circles and puffiness reduced.
When I received the products, I was instantly impressed. The gold box, and has a very detailed description of the benefits of the product, as well as its ingredients. I also love the fact that it has the brail language on the box, that is a nice touch.
Inside the box there is a solid gold glass jar, which is so beautiful and just screams luxury. The jar is see-through, which is handy so you can see exactly how much product you have left. And I love that it comes with a pump, as I find it so much more hygienic than jars of creams. And the pump is so sturdy that it makes it easy to get just the amount of product you need, so nothing is wasted. However, sometimes products in pump bottles are a little difficult to completely empty, but time is yet to tell if that will be the case.
The instructions suggest applying the cream with a specific energizing massaging technique – this took a little getting used to, but I could definitely see the benefits of the increased blood circulation in my face, and hence improving the absorption of the cream.
The Divine eyes has a lovely scent of lemon and tea, but it a much softer scent than in the Divine cream. And I do like that it is gentler, as I have very sensitive eyes that easily water, especially when products are too perfumed. The scent lingers for a little while after using the cream, as I really like, as I love the refreshing scent of lemon!
It has a gel texture, and is very concentrated, so just a gentle and small pump gives more than sufficient product for both eyes. It absorbs instantly leaving the eye area soft and smooth, with any greasy feeling, so during the day also the perfect canvas for makeup.
After now having used the Divine Eyes for approximately 8 weeks, both morning and night I feel that the look of my fines lines have improved and the bags have minimised. The skin feels soft, smooth and thoroughly moisturised. Using it in the morning, I also find that it works perfectly under makeup.
At $89 for 15ml it is not a cheap eye cream, but as only a small amount is required, it will last you for quite a while. Having now used it twice a day for the past two months, I still have approximately half left, so I can imagine that a bottle will easily see you through four or so months, which does help justify the high cost.
All in all it is a divine eye cream, of very high quality and with such great results, and therefore I would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody over the age of 35 who is starting to be concerned with the signs of ageing. It may be pricey, but I see taking care of my skin is an investment, and if you can afford it, you really wont be disappointed.
Thank you so much to BH for allowing me to experience such a beautiful, gorgeous product.

Very gentle but no miracles.
A big thank you to Beauty Heaven and L’Occitane for this opportunity to try L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Eyes. I am 56 years old and the skin around my eyes is generously endowed with wrinkles and creases, and seems stained with a permanent grey colour from too many late nights. Panda eyes sans mascara has been my lot. It’s the perfect (if challenging) canvas on which to test this product.
The eye lotion was used in conjunction with the L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream and the L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Extract Youth Serum, so to some extent my comments will relate to all three. However, since neither the serum nor the face cream was applied to the eye area, any changes around the eyes can be solely attributed to the eye lotion. As part of the trial, we were initially warned to do a patch test of all three products. This was a fair suggestion as I had previously tried the L’Occitane Immortelle Precious range and my face reacted to it. But there was no such a problem with Divine Eyes. A couple of times in the first days I experienced some slight itchiness around the eyes, but this reaction quickly dissipated.
As with all products, I first researched the ingredients, the main ones being Immortelle and Myrtle. Immortelle is said to have anti-allergic, anti-inflamatory, anti-microbial properties, to promote new cell growth and to be an effective anti-oxidant. These properties suggest that Immortelle aids in cell regeneration, hence its anti-aging effects. Myrtle is said to have anti-microbial properties. The packaging suggests the eye cream will make the eye look more radiant and less “tired”, reduce puffiness and dark circles and smooth out the skin.
The packaging of Divine Eyes is luxurious. First comes the outer plastic wrap to ensure no one can pinch a sample in the store. The box itself is a regal golden colour. It has some unusual raised dots on it, a bit like Braille, but it may be a way of ensuring that the product is authentic. I never found out what the dots meant. I really loved the way the ingredients were asterisked with either “Natural Origin” or “From Organic Farming”. Openness and honesty will always win my loyalty. The glass pump is solid and again gold in colour. The pump top is lockable, and only a small amount of product comes out with each depression. It was easy to use from the first application. In short, every aspect of the packaging has been considered and incorporated in the end product.
The application technique includes a relaxing massage. First you warm the product between your fingers, then apply it around the eye area working outwards, then massage your temples and, finally, cover your eyes with your hands and relax. It definitely gets the blood circulation going and my skin pulsed gently after each application. However, given my chronic state of exhaustion, I ended up preferring not to warm the product first and I applied it without warming. In this way the eye lotion has a cooling and stimulating effect around the eye area.
Divine Eyes has a scent-free formula. Only a tiny amount of the lotion is required. A gentle depression of the pump supplies enough of the product for both eye areas. I found that using more than this just resulted in excess lotion sitting on my skin. If I used the smaller amount, then the lotion was easily absorbed into my skin.
After using the range for two months, I can’t say I have noticed any difference. The skin around my eyes is always a bit softer than the rest of my face, and the texture has not changed. I also didn’t notice any visible improvement in the signs of aging. The wrinkles survived intact, the dark circles under my eyes are as dark as ever. Of the three products, I found this one had the least positive effect.
Would I repurchase the eye lotion? I probably would not. At $89 for 15 ml I’d need to see more results to entice me. To be fair, a person with a rested lifestyle might have had more positive results, but I can never count on a restful lifestyle, so this product is probably not for me.

Definitely best eye cream I have ever used
How excited was I to trial this product and even more so when it arrived. A gorgeous gold box that held a cute tiny pump bottle inside and never being kept unawares of how much cream is left, as you can easily see the contents by just holding up to light behind.
The fragrance of the cream is not as overpowering as the Divine cream, it’s actually a softer fragrance which I loved. You only need the tiniest amount to apply around both eyes and I found it just easier to push down on the pump till a tiny amount of cream was expelled onto my ring finger. That way I had no wastage. The cream feels soft and silky on application, no stickiness or greasy feeling. I gently patted the cream from under the eye area, around the outside of the eye to just below my brow line. Results were actually showing after just the 1st application. I was certainly looking forward to 7 weeks of use before commenting.
The eye cream has made my eyes look completely fresh, fine wrinkles were totally reduced. Believe me, as you age, your skin above your eye does drop and I found by patting up to my brow, the skin above and around the eyes has actually lifted so I am excited at seeing this happen. By using this cream around my eyes, it has certainly taken 10 years off my age and that certainly brings a smile for me. I don’t suffer from dark circles or puffiness under my eyes but this cream would certainly help if you had this complaint.
L’Occitane suggest an application technique for applying the cream at the back of their pamphlet. I found this easy to follow and very soothing so I used the technique every time. It felt like giving myself a relaxing, calming eye facial twice a day.
This eye cream is such an excellent product and I wish I could afford to buy it on a regular basis but it is so unaffordable for me. If I was to win Lotto, then I'd certainly buy lots. I have no hesitation in saying, if you can afford to use this cream and you are aged say 35 onwards, then do try it out cause you won’t be disappointed. The cream gave me benefits to my eyes now aged 55, so imagine using from age 35 or earlier.
There is a reason that this cream is called Divine and the proof is when you use it and see the results.
Thank you so much to BH for allowing me to experience such a beautiful, gorgeous product.
