As the first installation of my Summer Skincare Series I am featuring L’Occitane. L’Occitane has quickly climbed the list of my favorite brand for fragrances and I was told by several of my friends that I HAD to try their skincare so I took note and did just that. Today I am bringing you L’Occitane Gel Radieux Hydra Vital Gel and Demaquillant Yeux Eye Makeup Remover. And both of these products are perfect additions to your skincare routine for the Summer months.
I will start with packaging. I love that L’Occitane keeps their aesthetic very simple with modern-vintage apothecary containers. Can be both modern AND vintage? I don’t know but L’Occitane pulls it off quite well. :)
During the Summer we tend to wear more waterproof, smudge-proof, WILL NEVER COME OFF makeup, especially on our eyes. Soap and water just wont cut it to get the really heavy duty stuff off. From the thin skin to our lashes, our eyes are very delicate. If you are like me you cringe at the thought of tugging and damaging the skin around my eye area and GOD FORBID I lose any more eyelashes than necessary. Since I had my daughter they are falling out enough all on their own. The Demaquillant Yeux is a bi-phase formula of natural origin with emollient properties. This make-up remover perfectly and gently removes traces of eye makeup, even waterproof. It is enriched with floral waters of Immortelle, Rose and Cornflower, it helps to soothe and soften the delicate eye contour area to reveal a fresh and rested look.
The picture below is right after being shaken. I love how it looks when it ix mixed together.
I am also in LOVE with moisturizers in a gel formula. I wear them year round because it feels so much lighter and nicer on my oily skin but they are essential for my summer routine. The Angelica Hydra Vital Gel is light and ultra-fresh, it is a true burst of hydration to help revitalize the skin. Its cooling gel texture soothes the skin for a more radiant complexion. This gel provides 24 hours of hydration, leaving the skin immediately hydra-quenched, refreshed and soothed. The skin looks and feels recharged with energy and more resilient to fatigue.
Angelica is an astonishing plant. It can grow to a height of up to two meters in just a few days, thanks to its exceptional capacity of self-hydration. L’OCCITANE has selected organic angelica from the Drôme region of France and has patented its preservation of hydration and revitalizing efficacy for the skin.
As you can plainly see, these L’Occitane goodies need to be added to your skincare routine. They are moderately priced and really have the most fabulous formulas. Tell me in the comments below: what do you change about your beauty and skincare routine for the summer?
