Sunday's Chit-Chat: L'Occitane Pivoine Sublime Pampering Session (Razvajanje z L'Occitane Popolna potonika kolekcijo)

Sunday, May 24, 2015

Hello ladies, 
on the 13th I (& quite a few other Slovenian bloggers) got a truly amazing opportunity to have a pampering session in my nearest L'Occitane store to try out their new Piovine Sublime (Peony) line. 
Words cannot describe how excited I was, but today I'm going to try & share with you as many thoughts about the whole experience, and the line itself, as I can.

Pozdravljene punce, pred kratkim sem se imela priložnost udeležiti razvajanja z novo L'Occitane kolekcijo, imenovano Popolna potonika. Ker je to bila res ena enkratna priložnost, katere sem se seveda z (skoraj prevelikim) navdušenjem udeležila, bom danes z vami delila par besed o moji izkušnji, ter seveda sami kolekciji.

L'Occitane Piovine Sublime













Honestly, I couldn't wait for my pampering session as soon as I booked it, cause the girl that I talked to on the phone (I stupidly forgot her name) sounded so nice & friendly. And I otherwise hate talking on the phone, especially to strangers.
When I walked into the store, I was instantly ''greeted'' with a gorgeously set table full of Piovine Sublime products and an amazing scent of L'Occitane products. There were a lot of people in the store and the ladies working there were obviously showing them around, so I took a look into different products before I was greeted by one of the ladies there (once again, I forgot her name, sorry). 
She accompanied me to the part of the store were the pampering was going to happen, and even brought me another chair for my handbag. I mean, how nice is that? 
I took a look around and waited for a few minutes before another lady, called Mirela came around to do my ''facial''.

Razvajanja sem se veselila že od samega pogovora z eno izmed L'Occitanovih deklet, saj je že po telefonu delovala zelo veselo in prijazno. Ko je končno napočil ta dan, sem že ob samem vstopu v trgovino obnemela ob krasno urejeni mizi z vsemi izdelki iz kolekcije Popolna potonika.
Ker sta bili prodajalki zaposleni z drugimi gosti, sem se sprehodila skozi trgovino in uživala ob čudovitih vonjavah, na kar je do mene stopila ena izmed deklet in me pospremila do kotička, kjer sem počakala na drugo prodajalko, Mirelo, ki je ''skrbela'' za moje razvajanje.

L'Occitane Pivoce Sublime collection

We started chatting away and I have to say that I felt so relaxed, since both of the girls were so friendly & welcoming. I'm not a huge fan of chatting with strangers one on one, but here, I didn't have any problems.
She started by removing my make-up (I had a bit of concealer on my face & under my eyes, setting powder on top, brows, mascara and lipstick). She used their Shea Cleansing Milk to do that and she was very gentle. She also avoided my brows and eyes, so I still had mascara on.
She also complimented on how good my skin looked, which is always nice to hear, especially since I had this giant pimple on my chin and was quite self concious about it.
Then she sprayed the Piovine Sublime Perfecting Mist which felt really refreshing and smelt heavenly. I honestly didn't think I would like the scent of this line, as I'm usually not a fan of floral scents, but it won me over instantly.
She applied the Perfecting Essence next and the Perfecting Cream on top. I was really surprised at how fast both of them sank into my skin and how little she needed to use for the entire face. My skin looked great at this point and felt even better on the touch. It was ridiculously smooth and soft, and I couldn't stop touching myself.
Under my eyes, she used the Eye Care & Mask Duo Brightening Correction that has a metallic applicator which I'm a huge fan of ever since I started using my current eye cream from L'oreal.
Next she applied the Perfecting CC Cream in Medium and I was shocked to see that it actually comes out white. Although my skin already looked so radiant and smooth, I decided to say yes to the Precious BB Cream as well. We decided to go with the shade Fair since it had a pinky undertone and the shade Light looked too yellow for me. We both agreed that this was definitely the right choice as the shade was a complete match for me.
She topped everything off with a stunning, dusty rose blush that sadly isn't available any more (otherwise I would be all over it), their Tinted Lip Balm  in the shade Rose Plum and another spray of the Perfecting Mist
At the end she also measured the amount of moisture in my skin and it showed that my skin was quite dehydrated which I was kinda expecting as I haven't been drinking enough water and I've been using some harsher masks and pimple stuff, since I've been breaking out. 

Ker sta bili obe punci tako nasmejani in prijazni, sem se v trgovini počutila kot doma, in kar hitro smo se zaklepetale o njihovih izdelkih in sami negi. 
Razvajanje se je pričelo z odstranitvijo ličil, ki sem jih imela na obrazu (korektor, puder v prahu, maskara, obrvi in šminka), za kar je Mirela uporabila Karitejevo čistilno mleko. Nadaljevala je z Izboljševalno meglico za obraz, ki je prijetno osvežila moj obraz in ga pripravila za nadaljne korake. Sledil je nanos Izboljševalne esence in Izboljševalne kreme, ki ju je moja koža kar posrkala vase. Prijetno sem bila presenečena nad dejstvom, da sta se oba izdelka takoj vpila v kožo, in da je bila potrebna res zelo majhna količina za nanos po celotnem obrazu. Pod mojimi očmi pa je nanesla majhno količino Gel in maske za sijočo kožo okrog oči, ki ima kovinski aplikator. 
Moja koža je na tej točki izgledala krasno, in bila na dotik zelo mehka in gladka.
Nato je nadaljevala z nanosom Izboljševalne CC kreme v srednjem odtenku, ki je ob iztisku iz tube dejansko bele barve. Čeprav je moja koža že izgledala zelo sveže in poenoteno, sem se odločila še za nanos Žlahtne BB kreme Immortelle v svetlem odtenku, ki je koži dodala še malce več barve in prekrivnosti.
Celotni izgled sva zaključili še s prekrasnim rožnatim rdečilom, ki na žalost ni več na voljo, temnorožnato Obarvanim balzamom za ustnice in zaključnim sprejem Izboljševalne meglice za obraz.
Na koncu je izmerila še stopnjo vlažnosti kože, ki je bila pod mejo ''normale'', kar je nakazovalo na to, da je moja koža dehidrirana, vendar pa sem to pravzaprav pričakovala. Prijetno presenečena sem bila tudi nad dejstvom, da čez preostanek dneva, kljub neuporabi pudra v prahu, moja koža ni postala nič kaj mastna.
Punce pa so mi tudi povedale, da se tega razvajanja lahko udeleži prav vsak, kar bi vam jaz definitivno priporočila.

L'Occitane store

When the pampering session was over, I was asked to choose a shade of the CC Cream and with the help of Mirela, I opted for the clair-light one. Although there isn't such a big difference between the two shades, I will definitely get more use out of this one, as I get completely pale in the colder months.
We also talked about the products that I already tried from them (a shower gel, hand cream and a few samples) and then she showed me around the store, telling me more about the products that I was interested in, and also some of her favourites (which I really, really liked). I don't really have to mention that my wish-list got ridiculously long and I can't wait to use up some of the products from my stash, so I can go and splurge on some L'Occitane products.
I also have to add, that I absolutely loved the fact that the ladies there were so informed about everything, and that Mirela talked me through every product that she was using on my face. 
After 45 minutes or so, I left the store with a bunch of samples, a new CC Cream, an Almond set that I bought, and most importantly full of gratitude and excitement that I had this opportunity (by the way, I was told in the store that everyone is welcomed to have this free pampering session). 
I was completely blown away by this range of products and my skin felt super smooth & soft, looked so fresh, healthy, radiant, natural and youthful (so youthful actually, that I asked to show my ID when I was buying some alcohol for a birthday, later that day). What more could I hoped for? 
I did think that I would get oily throughout the day, since we didn't use a setting powder, but I was pleasantly surprised when I didn't. 

Ko sva končali z nego obraza, ki je bila zelo prijetna, sproščujoča in informativna, saj me je Mirela sproti seznanila z vsemi izdelki, ki jih je uporabljala, sem si lahko izbrala odtenek CC kreme. Čeprav med obema odtenkoma ni ogromne razlike, sem se odločila za nevtralni odtenek, saj bom le-tega lahko nosila dlje časa.
Ob sprehodu skozi trgovino sva se z Mirelo pogovarjali o izdelkih, ki sem ji že preizkusila (bore malo, šampon za tuširanje, kremo za roke in par vzorčkov), o izdelkih, ki si jih še želim preizkusiti in tudi o njenih najljubših izdelkih. Ta predstavitev mi je bila izredno všeč, saj sem na ta način izvedela veliko novih informacij iz prve roke, na žalost moje denarnice, pa spoznala tudi kar nekaj izdelkov, ki si jih želim kupiti.
Čez dobrih 45 minut sem trgovina zapustila s kupom vzročkov, novo CC kremo, Torbico užitkov z mandljemnovim znanjem, navdušenjem ter predvsem hvaležnostjo, da sem imela to enkratno priložnost. 
Nova kolekcija Popolna potonika me je brez dvoma prevzela, kljub temu, da sem bila na začetku zelo skeptična glede njenega vonja, moja koža pa je izgledala sveže, poenoteno, naravno in pomlajeno.

Now I'll tell you some more informations about the products. These photos below & the information were sent by their PR Team. This will only be in Slovene, but I'll post links to their UK site, where you can read more about them in English, if you're interested.
But in short, the main focus of this line is to moisturise your skin, to even out the skin texture, reduce the look of pores and wrinkles, all this for a flawless yet natural-looking skin. It also claims to have immediate & long-term results, fresh, glowing, flawless and velvety soft skin, without using make-up.

Za konec bom o izdelkih dodala še informacije, ki sem jih prejela od voditeljice marketinga, za vse ki bi si želele izvedeti še več o posameznem izdelku iz te linije.
Kot je zapisano je L'OCCITANOV laboratorij ob preučevanju potonik odkril in patentiral* edinstven izvleček, ki vsebuje izjemno visoko koncentracijo naravnih rastlinskih sladkorjev. V kombinaciji s pigmenti na mineralni osnovi za optično korekcijo polti nemudoma pripomore k popolnemu videzu kože. Ta edinstvena kombinacija je srce L'OCCITANOVE nove kolekcije za nego obraza POPOLNA POTONIKA. Inovativni izboljševalni kompleks iz potonik, ki uspevajo v francoskem departmaju Drôme, opazno izboljša stanje kože ter ima takojšnje in dolgotrajne rezultate.
 Njegov učinek? Navlažena koža, poenotena tekstura kože, zmanjšane pore in gubice – brezhibna polt, ki izžareva naravno lepoto. In prav naravna lepota je bistvo L'OCCITANOVE nove kolekcije za obraz Popolna potonika. Z njo ne želi ustvarjati iluzorne lepote, temveč razkriti popolnost – ne glede na to, kakšen je vaš ten kože.

L'Occitane Perfecting Mist

Izboljševalna meglica za obraz Popolna potonika (100 ml; 13,70€)
L'OCCITANOV laboratorij je ob preučevanju potonik odkril edinstven izvleček, ki vsebuje izjemno visoko koncentracijo naravnih rastlinskih sladkorjev. Njegova moč je ujeta v novi Izboljševalni meglici za obraz Popolna potonika. Ultrafina in prefinjeno odišavljena meglica ima takojšen izboljševalni učinek. Pore so manj opazne, koža pa je nemudoma osvežena in se zdi obnovljena – preprosto polepšana. 

I definitely agree with the claim that the mist is really fine, smells nice and instantly refreshes the skin. But I wouldn't really buy the full size of it, currently.
Definitivno se strinjam, da meglica prekrasno diši, se lahkotno razprši po obrazu in mu nudi takojšno osvežitev. Vendar pa trenutno to ni eden izmed izdelkov, ki bi ga nujno potrebovala ali želela imeti.

L'Occitane Perfecting Essence

Izboljševalna esenca za obraz Popolna potonika (30ml; 44,70€)
V L'OCCITANOVEM laboratoriju so ustvarili nov izboljševalni kompleks, ki združuje izvleček iz potonike in pigmente na mineralni osnovi za optično korekcijo polti. Ta inovativna kombinacija je srce nove kolekcije za izboljševanje polti Popolna potonika, ki nemudoma pripomore k popolnemu videzu kože. Nova Izboljševalna esenca za obraz Popolna potonika je serum, ki daje občutek druge kože. Njegova sveža in ultralahka tekstura, primerna za vse tipe kože, pomaga opazno izboljšati stanje povrhnjice. Pore, gubice in nepravilnosti so videti zmanjšane. Koža je gladka in žametno mehka, polt pa je videti poenotena, sveža in sijoča. 


L'Occitane Perfecting Cream

Izboljševalna krema za obraz Popolna potonika (50ml; 38,10€)
V L'OCCITANOVEM laboratoriju so ustvarili nov izboljševalni kompleks, ki združuje izvleček iz potonike in pigmente na mineralni osnovi za optično korekcijo polti. Ta inovativna kombinacija je srce nove kolekcije za izboljševanje polti Popolna potonika, ki nemudoma pripomore k popolnemu videzu kože.

Polt je nemudoma videti sveža, sijoča in spočita. Pore, gubice in nepravilnosti so videti zmanjšane. Koža je žametno mehka in gladka. Vaš obraz bo zasijal v popolnosti naravne lepote ...

L'Occitane Perfecting CC Cream
Izboljševalna CC krema Popolna potonika SPF 20 (30ml; 28,50€; dva odtenka)
V L'OCCITANOVEM laboratoriju so združili izboljševalen izvleček iz potonike, CC-pigmente, ki poenotijo kožo, in biserno sijoče delce. Rezultat je Izboljševalna CC krema Popolna potonika, ki nemudoma pripomore k popolnemu videzu kože. Fina vlažilna tekstura CC kreme pusti koži dihati, med nanosom pa se spremeni in prilagodi polti ter ustvari ultranaraven videz. Polt je videti poenotena in sijoča, nepravilnosti so zabrisane. Uporabite jo lahko kot podlago za ličila ali pa samostojno za make-up naravnega videza.
L'Occitanov nasvet: Za svež ten izberite nevtralni odtenek, za nemudoma sijoč ten pa srednjega. CC kremo nanesite zjutraj po uporabi vlažilne kreme. Za naraven videz je dovolj CC krema, za bolj prefinjen učinek pa nego zaključite s tekočim pudrom ali BB kremo. Ličila bodo obstojnejša, če boste nanje razpršili Izboljševalno meglico za obraz Popolna potonika. 


L'Occitane Tinted Lip Balms


Obarvani balzam za ustnice Popolna potonika SPF 25 (4g; 16,30€)
(odtenki; brezbarven, naravno rožnati, jantarni, temnorožnati)
L'OCCITANOV laboratorij je ob preučevanju potonik odkril edinstven izvleček, ki vsebuje izjemno visoko koncentracijo naravnih rastlinskih sladkorjev. Njegova moč je ujeta v novem Balzamu za ustnice Popolna potonika SPF 25. Negovalni balzam nahrani, zgladi in zaščiti ustnice ter jim podari naraven sijaj. Ustnice so sproščene in čudovite – preprosto lepe. 

As I said, I chose the shade Rose Plum (the far right one) and I was really surprised at how pigmented it was. It felt really moisturising on the lips and the colour was still visible after drinking. I currently own too many tinted lip balms, to be able to justify buying this one.
Sama sem izbrala temnorožnati odtenek, ki je dejansko bil lepo pigmentiran. Ustnice so bile prijetno navlažene, barva pa se je na ustnicah obdržala tudi po pitju. Žal imam trenutno preveč obarvanih balzamov za ustnice, da bi lahko upravičila nakup še enega.

You may have noticed that I only said my impressions about two products. That's because I'll be doing another post with my first impressions of the samples that I got and the set that I bought tomorrow, so stay tuned for that.

Hopefully you enjoyed reading this and let me know what's your favourite L'Occitane product.

Mogoče ste opazile, da sem svoje mnenje dodala samo pri dveh izdelkih. Razlog za to se skriva v tem, da bom jutri pripravila še eno objavo, s prvimi vtisi o setu, ki sem ga kupila ter o vzorčkih, ki sem jih dobila od prijaznih punc v L'Occitanu.
Upam, da ste uživale ob prebiranju te objave, podjetju L'Occitane pa iskrena hvala za tako enkratno izkušnjo!
