L'Occitane Hydra Vital Gel ~ #Review

The summer is now in full swing since school was out.  I am so happy that there have been only a few days where it was really hot and humid.  Luckily it cools down at night so the house is at the perfect temperature.  One would assume my skin wouldn't be dehydrated as much as it is during the winter but alas, my skin has its mind of its own and stays dehydrated regardless of the season.  It is not as severe but I still need something that is not too thick but light enough that relaxes my skin.  Any heavy cream apply during the summer would just melt my makeup right off and would feel gross.  Gel is usually the best option so I tried L'Occitane Hydra Vital Gel during the summer to hydrate my skin.

L'Occitane Hydra Vital Gel

Organic Angelica from the Drome region in France is an astonishing plant selected by L'Occitane for its remarkable vitality and growth.  The hydrating and revitalizing properties of the plant quenches skin's thirst, provides comfort and durable hydration.  L'Occitane Botanical Expertise Laboratory revealed and patented the exceptional moisturizing power of the angelica seeds to ensure a long lasting balanced level of hydration in two new moisturizing products:

Hydra Vital Cream (50ml) $46
Hydra Vital Gel (50ml) $42

For instant, intense hydration. Ideal for normal to combination skin, this aqueous gel melts in smoothly, with an instant thirst-quenching effect.  All year long, it envelops your skin in freshness and restores radiance and vitality from dawn to dusk (24 hours Hydration)

Angelica Seeds - astonishing plant boasts remarkable vitality and growth.  It can reach a height of almost two metre in just a few days, due to its exceptional capacity for self-hydration.

The gel is very light so it is perfect to wear during the day.  I love the gel texture and it is perfect for summer.  The gel does melt into my skin so fast that I could start applying my makeup right away.  I love the mint scent, it was very relaxing, which reminds me of Starbuck's yummy mint  green tea.  Once it is absorbs onto my face the scent disappears.  My face does feel hydrated that lasts me all day.  Immediately after first use my skin feels hydrated and smooth.   I also enjoy putting it on at night, just before I go to sleep.  My face stays hydrated so my skin feel refreshed and healthy to help me start my day.

Available this summer at all L'Occitane boutiques across Canada

  4. sounds like a nice lotion to moisturise and nourish your skin. I like the idea of the mint scent that alone must be refreshing.
