If you're anything like me, then 2021 has left you feeling a bit... disheveled.         

Lockdowns, cancelled holidays and unpredictable plans have made it a bit of a nightmare. (An understatement.)

In these crappy times I find myself – as I'm sure many of you do – turning to skincare in our attempts of providing some luxury in what feels like a groundhog day of sorts. 

There are so many serums and face oils to pick from, it can be overwhelming to know where to start.

Luckily, the L'Occitane Immortelle Overnight Reset Serum is here with a new and powerful formulation, as the all-in-one product to give your skin a little bit of lovin'. 

It is suitable for all ages and skin types, revitalises the skin and smooths fine lines to give you that youthful glow we're craving right now. 

Did I mention the fact that it's both an oil AND a serum? We love a hybrid product that helps simplify our routines. It has soothing, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties, so this little bottle of magic really can do it all it seems. 

It's also the must-have serum for glowing, smoother skin that makes you look rested. A perk many of us wouldn't say no to after the year (or two) that was.

To see what all the hype is about, we wanted this serum put to the test. We asked our Mamamia You Beauty Panel to roadtest L'Occitane's new Immortelle Overnight Reset Serum and report back to us on their honest findings. 

Here's what they found.

Michelle, 29: “It literally changed my skin."

“The bottle/ packaging is spot on for me, love a nice looking serum. I'm in love with the product, it literally changed my skin.

Amelia, 30: “Felt special from the get go.”

“Absolutely love this product. Will definitely be part of my permanent regimen. 

"Felt special from the get-go. Packaging was lovely. Pretty colours.

“This product is seriously luxe! It's a beautiful hybrid between an oil and a serum that is unlike anything I've ever used before. Gorgeous packaging and aesthetic - but what is really phenomenal about this product is the results! I saw a difference in my skin the day after I began using it.

"After cleansing at night, I popped one pump of this on and then followed with my regular moisturiser and woke up looking plump, refreshed and hydrated.

"Over the next few weeks, I began to see a noticeable improvement in under-eye puffiness and general brightness in my skin.”

Cathy, 53: “This is officially the best face oil I’ve tried.”

“I’m a big fan of L’Occitane Almond Oil so couldn’t wait to try this. I was so impressed!

"The bottle is gorgeous and looks great on display in my bathroom.

"The smell is of a citrus, crisp linen fragrance and is so invigorating. My skin looks dewy soft and plump in the morning. I also use it as a ‘pick me up’ in the late afternoon as it’s so hydrating. This is officially the best face oil I’ve tried (and believe me, I’ve tried many).

"Would thoroughly recommend, and have done so already to many of my friends.”

Lyn, 57: “Feels nice on the skin.”

Maree, 53: “This product has made a very noticeable difference to my skin.”

"This serum is so luxurious." Image: Supplied.

“This serum is so luxurious. I loved adding this serum to my nighttime routine, after cleansing and toning. I went to bed every night all relaxed. My rosacea has recently played up and this product has made a very noticeable difference to my skin.”

Jo, 44: "The packaging was beautiful."

"So good!  The packaging was beautiful (and the tissue paper it was wrapped in smelt AMAZING!), a luxe experience right off the bat. The bottle is nicely designed and looks great alongside the other products on my skincare shelf.

"The product itself smells lovely; has a silky, thick but non-sticky texture and layers great with the other products in my nightly routine - no pilling!  

"Overall I'd say this product is a great serum that does what it says it will do."
