L’Occitane’s Angelica line is, well, angelic in my book. Lately, I’ve been testing L’Occitane Angelica Hydra Vita Gel ($38/1.7 oz.). This particular product fills a serious need in the beauty world–a beautiful, fresh, gel moisturizer that is perfectly appropriate for all skin types, but particularly useful for combination and oily skin. This moisturizer is so refreshing and cooling, it’s perfect for summer mornings and evenings. It feels delicious.
I just spent two weeks in the dry, hot mountain air of Colorado. I used to believe that my “glow in the afternoon” skin didn’t need any moisturizer, until enough people told me that my skin looked dehydrated. After using some serums and moisturizers for a few weeks, I realized how much better my skin looks with some light refreshing moisture. Although I love my creams, in the warm summer months a light gel give the perfect amount of moisture.
L’Occitane Angelica Hydra Gel felt amazing to start off my day, and after a long day in that very dry climate (made even worse by the hotel air conditioning). This gel feels naturally cool, and has a very soft light scent that evokes light cucumber and lovely herbs. This gel is from L’Occitane’s Angelica line, which has natural hydrating and revitalizing properties. Unlike some cool gels, Angelica Hydra Gel has no sting of alcohol or harshness of any kind. Rather, it plumps the texture of my skin and felt very soothing, even on irritated skin (don’t ask, but I’ve never gotten off a flight without some problem or other!). It feels lovely on neck, shoulders and arms as well.
L’Occitane Angelica Hydra Gel comes in a generously-sized pot, sealed for freshness, and is a real treat. I wouldn’t want to go through the summer months without it. Bottom line, highly recommended.
