Review: L'Occitane Angelica series1:10:00 AM
So as I told you previously, I'm gonna talk about the L'Occitane Angelica series especially the three products that were given to us on the last L'Occitane event. The three products are:
The Angelica Instant Hydration Mask,
The Angelica Cleansing Gel,
The Angelica Hydration Cream,
Actually we were also given another few samples from the Angelica range but today I would like to specially highlight these three products instead.
The Angelica is a plant with tremendous vitality and amazing water retention structure. L'Occitane has patented the combination of organic angelica essential oil and water from the Drome region for it's effectiveness on skin hydration and vitality.
The patented complex is clinically proven to increase the synthesis of Aquaporin by 39%, giving intensive hydration and vitality to the skin. Aquaporin are skin water channels which can circulate one billion water molecules between skin cells in just one second. The best way to moisturize skin instantly is to enhance the synthesis of Aquaporins.
L'Occitane introduces Angelica product range that re-hydrate and revitalize skin with instant and long-lasting results. And I was so lucky to be able to try several of them. Here is my first impression on the three products that I received along with other mini samples...
First up is the Cleansing Gel...
The cleansing gel softly removes makeup and impurities, while preserving the hydrolipidic film of the skin.
I love it. It's a clear gel type and you use it as facial wash. It doesn't irritate my skin and didn't dry my skin at all after washing. My skin felt clean afterward and it has a fresh grassy scent to it too, very refreshing. I love the packaging too because the bottle has a tiny hole in the middle so we won't spill too much product in our hand. It doesn't lather much but it surely does it's job really well.
It also says on the bottle that this gel can remove makeup so let's try it! I put some water-resistant makeup too to see if this cleansing gel can actually removes stubborn makeup:
And look how the gel really cleanses everything off! And I only use like a tiny bit of it! I add water, scrub it off slowly and all the make up are gone in an instant, wow!! This is one hell of a make up remover, fast cleansing at it's best.
|and now it's all clean!|
Let's move on to the Instant Hydration Mask..
What it said:
It's an ultra fresh and water-soaked gel that re-hydrates the most thirsty skin in only 3 minutes.
I love it. I've never found a face mask like this one. It's a 3 minutes mask (fast result!) and it's a clear mask too so you can actually do your normal activity while putting on this mask because it doesn't show on your face. Is that genius or what? This mask has sold me out from the first time I tried it! Love the instant 3 minutes result, very practical and won't interfere with your daily activities. AND because it's a clear gel you can use it anytime while doing anything, even while working ;p because no one would probably notice that you're wearing a facial mask ^o^
|it looks a little greasy when first applied but don't worry... after a few seconds the skin will absorb it..|
And after pampering my skin with the mask I wiped it off and cleaned it with a toner and cotton pads, and then I put on the Hydration Cream as moisturizer.
Let's take a loot at the Hydration Cream...
What it said:
Fresh and silky smooth, this cream integrates the patented Angelica Complex to instantly and lastingly moisturize and revitalize the skin.
I received this in a travel size / sample jar, the texture is a rich cream lotion that feels soft to the touch. It feels rich and yet it absorbs rather quickly to the skin and hydrates it instantly. It also feels smooth and smells wonderful. All of the Angelica products smells like a fresh green grass.. relaxing and comforting at the same time...
|the rich and silky texture|
I also love this Hydration Cream because it feels so soft and silky smooth, just like what it said on the packaging. It also instantly hydrates and moisturize my skin. My skin looked more plump and moist after using it.
Overall, I love all of the products L'Occitane gave us and this is my true opinion about it. After a less than 10 minutes at-home treatment with the range above, my face looks more healthy, plumped, and moist all day. Love this range!
