“A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything,” – Irish Proverbs
If there is such thing as miracle, I have to say that this small jar of formula is it. Last year, L’Occitane en Provence, brought out a product that seems to be too good to be true. A relief for stressed and tired skin, claim to refresh and restart your skin while you sleep. So how can I not give it a whirl?
Here are the low down of how this beauty works. L’Occitane only uses natural ingredients and when possible, organic. In the case for this L’Occitane Overnight Reset Serum, the ingredients happened to be 97% natural, which is excellent. The three main ingredients are, Immortelle essential oils, electric daisy (acmella oleracea), and marjoram extract.
- Immortelle Essential oils are in many of L’Occitane skincare line. Immortelle essential oil is an active ingredients that helps to heal and nourish your skin, in some products the concentration is high enough that it can actually help to stimulate collagen which helps to eradicate fine lines. However, in the case for Overnight Reset Serum, the level of Immortelle is not as high therefore this is not an anti-ageing serum. The oil functions more as an antioxidant which helps to protect skin from external aggressors,
- Electric Daisy or Acmella Oleracea, has been used for ages as a numbing plants in traditional/natural medicine. It has been called a natural “botox”, which means that temporarily, this plant helps to rejuvenate and refresh the skin
- Marjoram Extract in this serum is used to awaken our skin’s cells/DNA which helps to let our skin and skincare to communicate better. This leads to better absorption of our skincare products which leads to an increase in the efficiency of each ingredients
The synergy of the three main ingredients helps to create one of L’Occitane most successful skincare launch in Australia to date.
My first impression of the product was nothing special. I suppose my skin is so used to a more active products and I don’t see much difference on my skin. I was a little disappointed especially because the product claimed so many amazing things. Anyway, few months down the track, my skin was a little angry with pimples which leads to few scarring. With my hyper-pigmentation, this meant brown spots. Remembering that the marjoram extract in this serum can help increase efficiency of any skincare products you put on after, I thought, what the heck let’s mix one pump of Reset with my Vitamin-C serum.
The result was so good! My pigmentation usually last for 3-4 weeks, or sometime longer. But when I pop the Overnight Reset Serum on before my Vitamin C serum, within the space of two weeks, my pigmentations are much much lighter. I was so impressed with the results and I have been sharing with my friends ever since. The serum has definitely developed its own cult following of ladies who can’t live without it. It took me a while to review it, but I am glad that I get to share this with you.
Will you give this serum a go? Or have you? Let me know below…
