I want to share with you something that has been a staple in my skincare routine over the summer. I am absolutely LOVING L’Occitane’s Angelica Hydra Vital Gel. This is a moisturizer with a cooling gel texture that is meant to leave the skin hydra-quenched, refreshed, and soothed. There is no SPF present in this formula, so I’ve been using it strictly as a nighttime moisturizer.  

l'occitane gel radieux.jpgThe scent is clean and fresh, and ingredients are taken from the Angelica plant. The gel is cooling, provides 24 hours of hydration and has soothing properties as well. Normally in the summer, I need all the hydration I can get. I have very dry skin. If I use something that doesn’t have enough hydration I always wake up with parched skin. This to me is perfection, and reminds me a lot of this moisturizer, if you’ve ever tried it. The biggest difference here is the price and the scent.

It sinks into my skin and absorbs in moments, leaving my skin with a soft and velvety texture and leaving my skin so hydrated. I’ve tried it during the day a few times despite not having an SPF just to see how makeup wore with it, and my foundation looked amazing with it. 

I could definitely see using this as a day and night moisturizer in the winter when I am a little less worried about SPF. This is true love right here, I suggest giving this a shot if you like gel moisturizers and your skin is feeling dry!

    This sounds great! I feel like gel moisturizers work better for me because of my oily skin.

    This looks like a lovely product but wouldn’t have enough oomph for my very dry skin.

    I used this gel when the line first came out, along with cleanser, toner and eye roll gel. It’s really great for dehydrated skin!

    I love gel moisturizers with my oily skin. They seem to absorb quickly and not feel so heavy. This sounds pretty cool! I need to try some L’occitane.

    I am a huge fan of gel moisturizers even though I don’t have oily skin. They seem to be less likely to cause milia and clog pores. This one sounds great!

    I love the sound of the formula but I’m not sure it would be enough for my dry skin.
