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.
The 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.
You can see the gel texture on my hand above. It’s so soft and soothing! 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!
