A Little Pampering with L'Occitane

Finding time to actually treat and pamper myself is something I have always struggled with - it was of course easier as a single college student (though even then as a bright-eyed pre-med I had so many things I thought I should be working on instead), but now as a full-time resident physician (with board-certification exams approaching), wife, mom of 3, and blogger, there are literally a dozen things at any one time I can convince myself I should be doing instead of treating myself.

But I've figured out that one of the easiest ways for me to get better about self-care and building in "treat" time is to truly make it a part of what I already do everyday. So in the morning instead of having my first cup of coffee while scrolling through emails and prepping lunches (which I eventually do), I start with my first few sips outside on my balcony just taking in the fresh air and views. And at night, I've transformed my nightly skin routine into a truly pampering experience (really hitting the reset button)!



I've started using L'Occitane's Immortelle Overnight Reset Oil-in-Serum, and it feels like such an indulgent step in my nightly routine. And the true bonus is that in the morning my skin is glowing and refreshed (even without the recommended amount of sleep, though I'm trying to work on that too)! I love that this serum really helps combat all of the stresses from the day - both mentally and environmentally! From their website, here are the top 3 active ingredients:

  • Immortelle Essential Oil, encapsulated in golden bubbles, is known for its anti-aging properties and helps fight visible signs of aging.
  • Acmella Oleracea extract is known for its immediate smoothing properties.
  • Marjoram extract helps reawaken skin for a radiant and refreshed glow.


Another bonus step I've started incorporating is cleansing with their Shea Butter Cleansing oil (it's literally like a face massage every night) prior to washing with my normal gentle cleanser. Both of these have really made my nightly skin care routing something I look forward to after getting the girls to sleep! Stay tuned over on Instagram where I'll be giving away these L'Occitane products and more to one lucky follower!
