Beauty DIY with L’Occitane Ma Crème Nature Moisturizing CreamL

The last time I remembered doing crafts or whisking things around is when I was a kid. It usually comes in a box with everything you need for your project and a blue print of instruction. Stumbling upon L’Occitane it brings back those memories because the project we’re doing today involves all my crafting skills, measuring, whisking, stirring, shaking and even chilling. It is quite an interesting experience but fun at the same time.

L’Occitane Ma Creme Nature Moisturizing Cream is a do-it-yourself (DIY) project. Everything about the cream is 100% natural and organic. The box contains everything you need ready to go.

The steps of making the creme are listed on the side of the box along with picture illustration. 100% quick and easy preparetion

Opening the box, you see a jar with a label along with a whisk and a spatula type thingy. There is also a graduate bottle with concentrated organic olive tree extract and a sachet containing rich in plant oils for making the creme.

Inside the graduated bottle, organic olive tree extracts are already enclosed. Gooey as it maybe, it kinda looks like amber honey.

On the back of the graduated bottle the label has the steps written out for you with measurement lines. This makes pouring in mineral or spring water easy as it can be.

For step #1, you need to pour in the water until it fills up to the arrow shown on the label.

Step #2 requires you to replace the cap and shake it well. You should see foaming bubbles all throughout the bottle now.

Step #3 requires the use of the sachet now. What you will need to do is pour the enclosed contents into the empty jar. The contents is Rich in Plant Oils.

Step #4, you will need the whisk and the bottle that has the organic olive extracts with natural spring water. What we will be doing is pouring the contents in the graduated bottle slowly into the jar. During the process we need to use the whisk to integrate the Rich in Plant Oils with the Organic Olive Extracts.

Here is a complete look at the integration. This has been just made.

Our last step is to write down the date we made the creme and the date it will expire on the label and attach it to the jar. Since the creme is all natural without additives, it lasts for 6 weeks in the refrigerator.

If you leave the creme in the fridge for a minimal of 12 hours the creme will become thicker and creamier. This is what mine looked like after 24 hours.

The consistency on the cream is quite creamy and lightweight with nice absorption. It brings the skin to a replenished and relaxed state while offering radiance. Speaking of relaxing, it is soothing as well because it has a little chill to it so naturally it cools the skin. After all, the fridge does a great job keeping the cream nice and chill, since that is the cream’s home right?

L’Occitane brings back memories of when I was younger with this amazing DIY kit. It’s really easy to make because all you really need is a bottle of mineral or spring water. You shouldn’t take more than 1o minutes to make the cream. Then you get a big jar of 1.7 oz that lasts for 6 weeks. The creme itself smells wonderful with natural olive scent. It is super moisturizing with cooling effect that soothes even the driest skin. Overall, it’s a great product and I had a ton of fun making it. Now I’m hoping L’Occitane come up with more DIY products in the future.

    I have this DIY kit. I think the mix is too much it’s like not useable all at once. You would still have so much leftovers even at expiration date. Wish they were cheaper even if that meant lesser cream.

      The tools look like mixing batter and such. I kept the whisk as a keepsake.
