|L'OCCITANE Angelica Hydration Skincare|
No one loves dry and flaky skin, so am I! Here's the good news for those who have dry skin type like me, L'OCCITANE has launched their new Angelica Hydration Skincare - Hydra Vital Gel and Hydra Vital Cream. The Angelica range delivers the exceptional moisturizing power of this plant from Provence and quenches skin's thirst as well as providing long-lasting hydration.
Discover the secret to angelic beauty...
In 2010, L'OCCITANE discovered and patented the combination of two extracts derived from the roots of organic angelica from the Drôme region. Organic angelica water boosts the circulation of water in skin cells by stimulating the production of aquaporins. Organic angelica essential oil helps protect skin against free radicals and improves the elasticity of skin fibres.
In 2014, the L'OCCITANE Botanical Expertise Laboratory revealed and patented the exceptional moisturizing power of angelica seeds. The extract derived from these seeds stimulates the production of versican - a molecule that promotes the delivery of moisture, and its retention in the skin when hydration level falls. Versican has a regulating function, and this ensures a long-lasting, balanced level of hydration.
Let's see what are the difference of Hydra Vital Gel and Hydra Vital Cream...
Hydra Vital Gel is 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 with freshness and restores radiance and vitality from dawn to dusk (24-hour hydration). With the new formula, Hydra Vital Cream offers long-lasting moisturization (48-hour). It boosts natural skin hydration while revitalizing and helping skin defend itself against environmental stresses. The fresh, creamy texture is a pure delight. It restores comfort and a natural glow, leaving skin plumper, smoother and radiant.
I have a dry and super sensitive skin. I would normally look for the term "non comedogenic" and/or "hypoallergenic"for my skincare products. These new products from L'OCCITANE are non comedogenic which also means it won't clog your pores. I started using both products since I came back from Sydney a week ago and I love how it really moisturize my dry skin especially my dry and flaky jaw areas. I normally apply the Hydra Vital Gel during the day time and Hydra Vital Cream during the night time. They have the same mild pleasant scent which will go away after it fully absorbed into your skin. For the texture wise, Hydra Vital Gel definitely is lighter than Hydra Vital Cream. Don't get me wrong, you won't feel Hydra Vital Cream too heavy as it absorbed into the skin pretty instant, unless you're having an oily combination type of skin. I am loving it so far as it works well on my skin, most importantly, it didn't break my skin out. (⑅˘͈ ᵕ ˘͈ )
