Summer is around the corner and sure its practically made for kicking back and relaxing, but it’s definitely not a time to slack on skin-care routine. I don't know about you, but summer can do some funky things to my skin—like making it feel and look as dry as the desert. But, I recently discovered that it’s possible to have the fresh, dewy skin I’ve always dreamed of with L’Occitane new Aqua Réotier Collection.
This thirst-quenching, water-based line is uniquely formulated with 3 powerful ingredients: hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and calcium-rich Réotier spring water derived from the mountains of Provence. It basically helps our skin look younger, more plump and awake which has been exactly what I need lately. Here, I’ll break down the products in the line I'll be using this summer — plus, how to use them correctly so you can keep your skin hydrated and glowing all season long.
The first step to any skincare routine! Start by cleaning off any dirt with Aqua Réotier Water Gel Cleanser. It is a gentle foaming cleanser gel that removes impurities without stripping off moisture. It really does hydrate and leaves your skin feeling silky - and a healthy glow, too. I loved the way my face felt after using it and can really tell the difference. Plus it smells amazingly FRESH!
The next step is an essential step to the moisturizing process (think of it as like using a primer for your makeup). Less than a dime-sized amount of Moisture Prep Essence was enough to cover my face, and neck with a silky, non-oily, gel-like product that my skin happily soaked up. The gel turns into a water-like texture to instantly refresh skin and make my face instantly more plump and evenly toned! This product gives my skin a big drink of moisture and preps it for the last step...
After that Prep is applied, the last step is a moisturizer! I love that there are two different moisturizers in Aqua Réotier line: gel or cream option. The Ultra Thirst-Quenching Gel is more of a lightweight option and leaves your skin feeling soft and dewy. The Ultra Thirst-Quenching Cream is a very mildly-scented, light cream that seals the prepping serum in, allowing for deep moisturizing. I use the cream at night and the gel in the morning and my skin has been feeling so refreshed and PLUMP!
I love this mist for a little hydration refresh throughout the day, especially in the summertime! It’s a perfect product to keep in your bag for a pick-me-up whenever you need it. The glycerin in it makes the difference as it absorbs hydrates and helps energize the skin quickly. It can also be used for setting our makeup.
As with most L'Occitane products, a little goes a long way and the Aqua Reotier line is so reasonably priced (from $19-$29) that makes it such a great value! It has been amazing for my dry skin and I am looking forward to using it beyond this summer actually. Especially as I am getting older (just turned 31 two weeks ago), I am realizing now more than ever how important it is to really care for and hydrate your skin. It can make all the difference in your skin’s appearance, youthfulness, and vitality!
