Currently loving - L'OCCITANE Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Mist


Hello! Are you a fan on spray mists? I sure am! I love to use spray mists on my face and my body, especially during spring and summer. I am trying to keep this a thing so I can use up the products, even though the fall/winter weather doesn't call for a freshening up with a mist. I have been a fan of peonies since I was a kid.In fact one of my favourite childhood flowers were peonies and they always smelled so nice. Years later I received the L'Occitane perfume with the scent of peonies and I loved it so much! When they released the skincare line with the peonies extract I knew I will definitely purchase some of the products. One of them was also L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Mist!



L'Occitane has discovered that peonies are not just pretty flowers but also  have amazing properties that can be beneficial to our skin. By using enzymatic hydrolysis, a process that allows molecules  of the peony extracts to be broken down into micro-fragments, making them more effective on the skin, the skincare collectin Pivoine Sublime was born. The skincare products are designed to help you hydrate your skin, correct uneven skin tone, reduce fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores and in general help you enhance your natural complexion. 

L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Mist is an ultra fine and delicately scented face mist that gives your skin instant boost and helps with hydration. Keeping your skin well hydrated will help you not just with looking good but also prevent early aging signs. It has an alcohol-free formula that can be used at any time of the day. I mostly used this in the evening to add a little something extra to my skincare routine or I used this during the day, to refresh. Especially easy to use if you are not wearing any makeup. But if you are, you can use it to set the makeup look or as a base, to help you prolong the wear of your foundation. It helps refine skin texture, while giving it an extra  boost of moisture. 




It has such a lovely scent! I just can't get enough of it and it's gentle enough, which is perfect for a skincare product, No one wants to use products on their face that are too strongly and artifically scented. This feels very calming on the skin and luxurious at the same time. To me this smells like early summer in a bottle! 

The packaging is simple plastic bottle with spray on top. It includes 100 ml of product but still doesn't look too small. The spray is more like a regular spray than a fine mist dispenser, I wish they would change that. For example, their Comforting face mist enriched with shea is a lot more like a fine mist than this one. I still like to use it though, I just make sure I don't apply too much and that I keep about 20cm distance while spraying it on. Also, the packaging is sturdy and strong, perfect for transport and also easy to take with you on a plane, for example. 

The mist really helps me hydrate my skin well. Especially handy in summer months, but I tend to use face mists in colder months as well. I like to use this also as a toner, before applying my cream or primer. Though this is not really meant to be used instead of a toner it worked well in that role as well. It refreshes my skin, hydrates it, my skin feels soft and I also love that it sinks in really fast and I can continue with my care without much waiting. Because it has such a nice floral scent it can be also used to scent your neckline or even your hair. In combination with the perfume I feel like it helps to prolong the scent on my skin. When I want to achieve a more lived in, dewy sort of look, I tend to use this as a makeup setting spray. It doesn't make me look shiny or greasy in the unpleasant way but just adds a little something to my skin, so my setting powder doesn't look too obvious. 

I am very satisfied with the product! I love the scent, the effect it has on my skin! The packaging is cute and contains just the right amount. You don't need much, so the bottle will definitely stay with you for a couple of months until you use it up. I prefer this as a special something to hydrate my skin, but it performs well also as a setting spray, so it's a very versatile product. I do wish they would add a bit more fine dispenser, that the product would come out in an even better mist form. The price is 13,70 euros, so it's not the cheapest, but still very worth it! I have also tried the CC cream from the collection, so you can read full review here
