[unpaid/sample/affiliate/ad] It’s such a long time since I’ve seen a new neck cream. I think perhaps that mostly we are just extending our face care down rather than buying specific ‘area’ creams but there will have been plenty of market research to assess whether or not there is a customer base for this type of cream.
Looking at this purely as a cream specifically for the neck area rather than whether you actually need a separate product (I’m sceptical), it has surprised me from the get go. One of my bug bears is that creams and SPFs tend to just sit on the neck skin and in hot weather that’s unpleasant. I can’t stand the feel of sweaty neck when it’s too hot and you’ve slathered up. The L’Occitane Immortelle Neck Care Serum-in-Cream is super lightweight and does not ‘sit’ making it a very easy wear product. It’s interesting that the packaging contains the words, ‘Formulated for the neck. Do not use on the face’ and for the life of me I cannot think why when you consider what products (retinols and peels, for example) people will use on their faces.
Hopefully you can tell how light the formula is from the picture. L’Occitane uses shea and immortelle essential oil from sustainable sources (they’re B Corp certified) partnered with hyaluronic acid and peptides in this mix. I like it – I don’t know if anyone needs it but I like the formula, I like the non-sweaty feel of it and gosh, I am tempted to put it on my face to see what will befall me ;-). I like the Immortelle range – one of my favourite products of all time is the Overnight Reset Serum (HERE). The L’Occitane Immortelle Neck Care Serum-in-Cream is £52 HERE.
