L’Occitane Pivoine Sublime and Pivoine Flora ~ #Review

I always get excited when I receive something from L’Occitane. They carry one of my favourite hand creams, the 20% shea butter hand cream. I also love their fragrances. The other day I was wearing one called the Cerisier Rouge, Eau Intense and someone actually commented to me how much they like the scent. I bet she would also like the Pivoine Flora scent if I wore it when I see her.


Pivoine Flora, created in 2010 by L'Occitane, perfumer in Provence, captures a frangrace in full bloom in a new pink, rounded bottle, engraved with petals, in the gardens of Monsieur Riviere.

The Collection:
Eau De Toilette (75ml, $50)
Beauty Milk (250ml, $32)
Shower Gel (250ml, $22)
Bi-phase Bath Oil (250ml, $36)
Hand Cream (30ml. $12)
Petal Soap (75g, $8)

I love the perfume bottle it came in. It looks like an apple or a big cherry so it makes it so easy to hold the bottle. I love when fragrance’s bottles are shaped different than your typical bottle. The fragrance is a light floral scent that I could see myself wearing it often. I sprayed it in my arms and I could barely smell the scent so I think it could be an ideal perfume to wear at the office.

L'Occitane has created Pivoine Subline an innovative line of perfecting skincare products for all complexions.  A Peony extract discovered by L'Occitane's Laboratories is the patented active ingredients at the heart of this new skincare line:

The Collection:
Perfecting Cream (50ml, $46)
Skin Perfector (30ml, $54)
CC Cream - Skin Tone Perfecting Cream, avail in 2 shades - light and medium (30ml, $40)
Perfecting Mist (100ml, $25)
Tinted Lip Balm with 25 spf (4g, $20)

The new Pivoine Subline is to help hydrate the skin, correct uneven skin texture, act on pores and fine lines, and enhance the complexion.

In case you didn’t know, I am addicted to lip balms. The Pivoine Sublime tinted lip balms is a must have for this Spring and Summer. It comes in 4 shades: transparent, rose, beige, plum, and red.  The lip balm has a great floral scent and I think there is even a hint of cherries. It hydrates my lips instantly once I applied it. It said it hydrates for 8 hours but it is hard to tell when lip balms do last on my lips for very long when I am eating or drinking. It contains 25 SPF to help us protect our lips from UVA/B. This is perfect since I always forget to apply sunscreen on my lips.  It leaves a pretty rosy colour on my lips.

I can’t wait to try the other Pivoine Sublime and Pivoine Flora products and I bet they will be a great Mother’s Day gift ideas.

  65. I love lipbalms too, especially ones that have a tint. I don't wear lipstick ever! I don't think that I have applied sunblock to my lips so it's a good thing that lipgloss and balms now contain it. I love that this perfume and lipbalm are in pretty packaging. Thanks for the great review. Would love to try these.(Margaret MacKenzie)
