L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Protection SPF 20 Review

6 comments
When I was sixteen, I got one serious sunburn. That was all it took for me to become obsessive over wearing sunscreen. In a way, I am grateful for that horrible sunburn because I have kept my skin really protected ever since. Fast forward some years, and it shows! I may be pale, but my skin is relatively damage free.


I get my beauty product obsession honest. My mother is seriously into skincare, so I got some amazing skincare products for Christmas including the L'Occitane Immortelle Precious Protection SPF 20. It takes time to see the benefits of new skincare items, so now that I have used this product for over a month, I believe that I can give a thorough and honest review.

product claims

L'Occitane has a line of products based on the oil of the immortelle flower -- a flower that does not fade after it is picked. This oil is supposed to stimulate collagen production to smooth the skin.


The cream comes in a beautiful blue glass jar with a sticker identifying the product. The silver part of the sticker has rubbed off a bit. While the jar is nice, I am not a fan of jar packaging for face creams. As you use more and more of it, it becomes increasingly difficult to get it out of the jar. Also, I prefer to not have my fingers in my products because it isn't very sanitary. Exposure to the air is another thing that should be taken into consideration.


The cream has a nice botanical smell and, as you can see pictured above, is thick in consistency. It applies smoothly and blends into the skin easily. Because it is a thick and emollient cream, I wait a few minutes before I apply my makeup. I like to give it a chance to absorb. 

Typically, I prefer using an SPF of 30 on my face daily, but I actually don't mind the lower SPF 20 because it is winter. I think that protection from the cold is just as important as sun protection during winter, and this cream does a great job with both. For summer, this would not be a good choice for my skin, but it is perfect for the weather and shorter days right now.

No parabens!

Overall, I really like this product and would more than likely repurchase next winter. The only flaw is the packaging, but I may feel different about it if I got the Beauty Spoon. I just don't think that you should have to make an additional purchase just to be able to dispense the product. If you have a Beauty Spoon, let me know if you think I should get it. I would love to hear your thoughts on it! 

Do you have a favorite product from L'Occitane?

Thank you so much for reading and commenting!
