Plant-based oils have been used for centuries for medicinal as well as beauty purposes. Pure and nourishing, well-extracted plant oils can have exceptional benefits on the skin.
When it comes to natural beauty care, especially in the distillation of essential oils, L’Occitane is definitely a front-runner. The newly-launched Divine Youth Oil joins the brand’s existing Divine Immortelle ritual, an anti-ageing range.
The Divine Youth Oil has an incredible repertoire of seven plant oils in its formula: Borage, Evening Primrose, Camelina, Echium, Sea Buckthorn, Apricot and Rose Hip. All of them contain Omega 3 and 6, essential fatty acids that are known for their soothing and regenerating properties, on top of their ability to protect the skin’s natural barrier function.
Do We Like It?
While it may sound like a rich, greasy formula, don’t be mistaken. The formula is actually nourishing and lightweight, and absorbs quickly by the skin. The skin feels plump, supple and smooth almost immediately. We also love the sensorial experience thanks to its subtle scent and how it feels like a nice massaging oil on the skin. It is a special treat particularly as part of a nightly regime.
The L’Occitane Divine Youth Oil retails at SGD169 and is available at all L’Occitane stores.
