Tips L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Cream

(Besedilo v slovenščini je na dnu objave.) 

I'm a fan of L'Occitane skin care since my teens, particularly their skin care ranges that are suited for combination/oily skin (currently it's Angelica, but it used to be Red Rice and Lavender) and last year I also found my favourite ever moisturiser in their Angelica line. The latter appears to have been reformulated and I haven't tried the new version yet (a few ingredients are missing, but it very similar from what I call tell), but when I first tried Pivoine Sublime (Peony) Perfecting Cream, the similarities between my favourite and this one didn't escape me. Indeed the texture and finish it leaves is very similar, however, visually Pivoine Sublime moisturiser is outstandingly beautiful and it doesn't end there, the scent is divine as well, quite possibly my favourite ever skin care scent.


The texture is like a classic cream, but closer to one of those gel-cream hybrids one, so it feels very moisturising, yet it sinks into the skin within a minute and it leaves a dry to the touch velvet-satin finish, which to me makes it an excellent base for makeup just like the Angelica one. This is the type of cream that could work for so many skin types, maybe just not for very dry skin, as I'd at least put an additional hydrating serum or oil under it. I should also mention that both the Angelica Hydra Vital and the Pivoine Sublime creams have silicones, but the Angelica one has less of them.


As I said times before the scent  is amazing. It's such a lovely floral scent - it smells of peonies, of course - I just adore it and it makes the morning and night routine such a pleasant experience. There is also a fragrance available with this scent, which I promptly put on my wishlist.

Usually I'm not a fan of creams in pots for hygiene reasons, but this pot so beautiful. I keep it as decoration on my shelves. Unlike the Angelica version, it has a metal foil protector, while the former had a plastic one which turned out to work a bit better I think.

Now for the most pressing question - is it as good for my skin as the (old) Angelica one? I said in my review for the latter that it makes my skin look healthier. I've been using the Peony version for about a month now and so far I don't find that it works quite as well for my skin, despite the similarities, but I did stop using acids, so the conditions aren't the same. It's close enough though, especially if my favourite has gone under a significant reformulation and it's firmly at the second place of my all time favourite moisturisers, and yes, despite the steep price (the scent sells it to me, to be honest). L'Occitane is usually very generous with samples, so if I are considering trying moisturisers from Peony and Angelica lines, I'd get a sample of both. Both are priced about the same and both are excellent moisturisers, so it really depends on the individual preferences which one to choose. 

Pivoine Sublime Perfecting Moisturiser costs 38.10 €. You can find more information about the Pivoine Sublime line as well as my review and swatches of the lip balm from this line here.


L'Occitane sem odkrila v mojih najstniških letih in ena izmed prvih stvari, ki sem si jih privoščila, je bil sivkin matirajoči losion, ki je bil izjemen. Danes tega losiona ni več, saj ga je zamenjal Angelikin, ampak L'Occitanovi izdelki za nego za obraza so ostali eni izmed moji najljubših in tisti, ki jim še najbolj zaupam (čeprav mi cene niso najbolj všeč). Lani sem se popolnoma zaljubila v Angelikino kremo za obraz, ki je daleč najboljša krema kar sem jo uporabljala, ampak izgleda da so zadnje čase nekaj menjavali sestavo, nove pa še nisem preizkusila. Ko sem prvič preizkusila novo kremo iz Potonikine linije, sem opazila izjemno podobnost med staro Angelikino in to. Mi je pa lonček Potonikine kreme precej lepši (prava dekoracija v kopalnici ali mizi) in pa tudi vonj je izjemen, prav verjetno moj najljubši vonj kreme od vseh, ki sem jih imela možnost preizkusiti.

Tekstura kreme je dokaj klasična, ampak je ena izmed teh "modernih" tekstur, ki je skoraj nekako kot hibrid med gelom in kremo, posledično se hitro vpije v kožo in ne pusti mastnega sloja na koži. Mojo mešano kožo dovolj nahrani in pusti na koži satenast finiš, koža je tudi zelo hitro suha na dotik. Meni so take kreme še najbolj všeč za pod puder. Obe Angelikina (nova in stara) in tale vsebujeta silikone, ampak Potonikina jih ima višjo koncentracijo in ti so odgovorni za žametni občutek na koži. Krema se mi zdi primerna za večino tipov kože, saj odlično deluje na moji (z)mešani koži, le za suho kožo bo premalo in bo potrebno uporabiti še kakšen vlažilni serum ali pa olje.

Vonj je izjemen, o tem trobim že cel mesec v več objavah in še parfum iz te linije sem takoj dala na listo želja. Krema seveda diši po potonikah, torej ima prijeten cvetlični vonj. Meni je vonj izdelkov, ki jih uporabljam zelo pomemben in tale krema mi res polepša vsakodnevno rutino.

Običajno nisem ljubiteljica krem v lončkih zaradi higienskih razlogov, ampak lonček te kreme je čista umetnina, pravzaprav je celotna Potonikina linija paša za oči. Krema je poleg kovinskega pokrovčka zaprta še z aluminijasto folijo, ki sem jo jaz kar obdržala, ampak Angelikina krema ima dodatni plastični pokrov, ki se izkazal za malo bolj praktičnega.

Pa mi je Potonikina krema tako všeč kot stara Angelikina? Po pravici povedano sploh ne vem. Obe sta tako podobni, sploh kar se tiče teksture in finiša, mi je pa seveda vizualno Potonikina krema veliko lepša, da o vonju sploh ne govorim. Vseeno se mi zdi, da je bila moja koža ko sem uporabljala Angelikino verzijo malo lepša, je pa res, da sem trenutno prenehala z uporabo izdelkov s kislinami tako da pogoji niso popolnoma enaki. L'Occitane je običajno zelo radodaren s testerji (izjemno pohvalno. So redki v Sloveniji), poleg tega imajo zelo dobre prodajalce, ki radi pomagajo, tako da preizkusite obe kremi in se sami odločite katera vam bolje ustreza.

Izboljševalna krema za obraz Popolna potonika stane 38.10 €. Več informacij o celotni liniji Popolna Potonika in objava od balzamu za ustnice iz te linije najdete tukaj. Kolikor sem gledala po tujih L'Occitanovih straneh sem samo pri nas našla komplet minijev, ki vsebuje tudi 8 ml lonček kreme, samo ga na spletni strani ni več na zalogi, je pa zagotovo še v kakšni trgovini. Meni je padel v oči predvsem zaradi mini parfuma in mini kreme, ker so mi take stvari izjemno prikupne.

Have a great day!
