Review: L'Occitane Sublime Beauty Cream (Medium)

by - Tuesday, December 03, 2013


This is my second product I've used from L'Occitane en provence: Sublime Beauty Cream. I received this sample along with L'Occitane Iris Angelique Essence Sublime which I've reviewed. And after several uses, I really-really love this BB cream.

The (Sample) Packaging

I got the sample for free from the counter. it's really small, it only lasts for 2-3 use for each. It's made from plastic and easy to cut as well as pressing for the cream to pop.

The Ingredient

On the backs side, it's written clearly about the ingredients:

Aqua/water, Cl 77891/Titanium Dioxide, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Glycerin, Silica, Vegetable oil/olus oil, cyclomethicone, caprylic/capric triflyceride, Cl 77492/Iron oxides, octyldodecanol, methyl methacrylate crosspolymer, potassium cetyl phospate, coco-glucoside, cetearyl alcohol, Angelica Archangelica Root Extract. Angelica Archangela Root Oil, Iris Florentina Root Extract, Iris Pallida Root Extract, Lens Esculenta (lentil) Fruit Extract, simmondsia chinensi (jojoba) seed oil, dicaprylyl carbonate, phenoxyethanol, parfum/fragrance. dimethicone/vinyl dimethicone crosspolymer, lauroyl lysine, polyglyceryl-2 Caprate, coconut alcohol, dimethiconol, chlorphenesin, alumina, ethylhexylglycerin, sclerotium gum, xanthan gum, sucrose stearate, stearic acid, tocopherol, glyceryl caprylate, squalane, biosaccharide gum-1, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, limonene, Cl 77499/Iron Oxides, Cl 77491/Iron Oxides


The bold ingredients are claimed to be from organic farming which also the main feature of this product. It doesn't contain paraben, that's why I love this brand so much and no wonder why it's expensive compared to another brand.

The Cream

It says: Apply in the morning on the face, on a clean and dry skin. Can be used alone or after your usual moisturizer.

So that's why I use this after applying my moisturizer. I choose the medium variant since it matches my tone well. Anyway, this bb cream comes with light and medium shade. The advertisement promises that this cream would help to achieve a perfect, flawless finish. Also offering all the benefits of a moisturizer and foundation, gives the complexion a fresh, natural and even look, visibly reduces the look of pores, redness and blemishes, hydrates and smoothes the skin, and provides SPF 30 sun protection. Awesome , right?

The cream has thick texture at a glance but at the same time it's really soft and easy to blend -moreover if you have applied moisturizer. I definitely love its sweet and subtle scent, I wonder why some people dislike fragrance-contained cream? I personally heart it.


Magically, I don't need to add concealer to cover my blemishes or scars cause this cream has a good coverage! It also hides my large pores and really bring even look. Can't ask for more. It does the job well, clap-clap!

The finishing just good without powder, it would create a dewy look, but I'd rather to add face-powder to make a matte look. And it lasted for more than 6 hours, just like my office hour.

I hope I can purchase the full size in the future, it's pretty expensive though, around IDR 480,000 ($49) for 40 mL. But I think it's worth buying :)

Thank you for reading.
