Description

This Brightening Instant Exfoliator exfoliates the skin, for an immediately even-toned and luminous complexion.
Its fresh gel texture transforms into a soft milk while rinsing. It combines:


•pure organic immortelle essential oil to protect against free radicals and for anti-wrinkle and firming effectiveness,
•Bellis perennis brightening extract to make the complexion uniform and more luminous,
•vegetal origin exfoliating powders to purify and smooth for a flawless complexion, while glycerine preserves the skin’s moisture.
Skin texture is more even and firm for perfectly soft and smooth skin. Complexion is brighter with a flawless finish and a youthful glow.

Immortelle grows abundantly on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea and has an exceptionally long life. Its flowers produce an essential oil that boosts collagen synthesis, and helps stimulate microcirculation to enhance cell renewal.
Bellis perennis, the daisy flower, opens its petals each day with the sunrise and closes them at dusk. Its flower offers a brightening extract that contributes to reduced melanin synthesis.

Buffs the skin well

Price
Summary
I tried this and was happy with it, but the price did shock me.
I find the price to be far too high for every day use, I just could not justify spending that amount on a little bottle.
The scrub though, is really gentle on buffing the skin, leaving skin clean and refreshed.
I did not notice my skin looking brighter, but my skin looked less dryer as it was buffed nicely.
There are other products out there that you can buy for 1/4 of the price for the same effects.
All in all, I would actually not recommend this due to the price.
If you can afford it, go for it. Other than that, nip into your local Boots and look for well known cheaper brands that do stuff that are just as good.

This was another sample of the brightening range that I received with a full size purchase! The Immortelle range is designed to lighten, brighten and even out the skin tone. These results happen over time of course but you do see some immediate results when using each product.
This gel based scrub contains pure organic immortelle essential oil for free radicals protection and anti-ageing firming. Bellis Perennis extract has a natural brightening effect on the skin. This product also contains fine grade vegetal exfoliating powders that do not irritate or scratch even the most sensitive skins.
The scrub comes in a beautiful pearlescent white, yellow and blue soft squeeze tube and has a gorgeous floral fresh fragrance. You only need a small amount of product which you apply to damp skin. As you massage the gel turns to a silky white lotion consistency that cushions and nourishes the skin as you exfoliate. I will say that the fine powders in this product are a little too fine for my skin as I prefer a harsher grade exfoliator. The best result for me was using this product on dry skin for better exfoliation. After rinsing your skin feels beautifully smooth, soft and moisturised with no feeling of dryness or tightness and irritation. You can see an instant luminosity and radiance to the skin which gives your complexion an overall healthy and youthful look.
The tube is long lasting and if you have extremely sensitive skin that will not tolerate standard grade scrubs and polishes I would highly recommend this one by L’Occitane
