L'OCCITANE Peony CC Skin Tone Perfecting Cream | Review

Press Sample (Affiliate Links)

Have you yet become acquainted with L'OCCITANE'S new Peony Collection? If not, you will be elated by this gorgeous collection of lovely products. One of my favorite pieces from this collection is the Peony CC Skin Tone Perfecting Cream.

L'OCCITANE Peony CC Skin Tone Perfecting Cream is a feather-weight and beautifully hydrating CC Cream the leaves skin luminous, even-toned and visibly perfected. The finish is natural, and while it offers light to medium coverage it conceals blemishes and imperfections without ever looking caked on.  If you prefer full-coverage foundations, then this serves well as a remarkably effective tinted primer.

One of its really novel features is the fact that it dispenses from the tube as an emollient white cream, but it quickly color adjusts to your skin tone. It has a light clean floral scent that is utterly delectable, but it does fade soon upon application.

According to L'OCCITANE,

This light hydrating cream contains CC pigments and transforms during application to immediately and visibly create perfect-looking skin. The complexion looks even, fresh and luminous. The skin feels comfortable and protected (SPF 20). Skin is fresh, luminous and unified until the night. 

The L'OCCITANE Laboratory has combined the skin-perfecting peony extract with unifying CC pigments and illuminating pearly particles. This ultimate combination of ingredients helps to immediately and visibly create perfect-looking skin.
About the Peony Collection,

The Peony collection offers a floral and generous perfume and eau de toilette, both marked with green freshness and containing a peony extract from DrĂ´me in the south of France. 

There is a Mediterranean legend of a beautiful nymph named Paeonia who was so courted by the gods that a jealous goddess transformed her into a flower with a thousand petals: a peony. Since then, this symbol of beauty brightens every spring with its dazzling show of colors and scents.
 Available in Light and Medium. Medium is featured in this review.
The swatches above demonstrate Peony CC Skin Tone Perfecting Cream's metamorphosis from a white cream to its final color. Below you see all three swatches blended out.
Active Ingredients: Titanium Dioxide 15.14% (Sunscreen)
Overall Assessment: This is a phenomenal CC Cream, plain and simple. I do use an additional SPF since L'OCCITANE Peony CC Skin Tone Perfecting Cream has an SPF 20, and I don't go outside with anything lower than an SPF 30-40 on my face. If you are in the market for a CC cream, then this is certainly one to consider.

$34.00 for 1 oz. from L'OCCITANE (Affiliate Links).

  1. That's a perfect color match! I have Dr. Jart Premium BB Cream that is also self-adjusting and I like that feature a lot. The entire Peony collection from L'Occitane looks lovely

    1. It really is, Allison! I was doubtful that it would be when I initially saw the white cream, but was shocked when it ended up seamlessly blending in with my skin. I don't have much experience with CC Creams, but L'Occitane definitely made an amazing product with this one! I have never tried the Dr. Jart Premium BB Cream, but it is very interesting that it, too, is self-adjusting! Such a novel idea! Yes, I am exceedingly impressed by the entire Peony Collection! It's well worth checking out, that's for sure!

  4. Wow, perfect match! I don't know why when I saw the packaging, I was expecting a red cream inside. I guess these days, a lot of companies put the color on the packaging, so my mind went straight to that. :P

    1. Crazy, isn't it?! I certainly didn't expect it to color adjust so perfectly! I thought that it would be a mid-tone beige instead of white, but was shocked when it color adjusted to my skin tone so perfectly! Can you imagine if it had come out of the tube red?! That would have been quite a surprise! :D
