Last month I had the chance to receive and test out some new goodies from L’Occitane’s new Aqua Reotier line, which is targeted to hydrate your skin and absorb the maximum moisture. It’s a perfect line for summer, cause we always need that extra water for our skin. The line itself was formulated from the spring water nestled in Haute-Alpes region, which includes high level of calcium. I’ve been using these products for quite a while now, 2-3 weeks and decided to share my thoughts. The products I tested out are Aqua Reotier Moisture Essence, Aqua Reotier Thirst Quench Gel, Aqua Reotier Thirst Quench Cream.
AQUA REOTIER MOISTURE ESSENCE
I used this product based on the instructions written on the bottle: applied a pea amount in my hand, warmed it up and tapped on my face. However, at the shop, I was told about another way of applying this product, by putting some essence on a cotton pad and swiping on a clean face. So it can be used as a toner as well. I use it after my usual cleanser, scrub, toner and before my serum and cream. Sometimes when I’m in hurry, I skip the serum part. This essence is said to boost the absorption abilities of the skin to get the maximum from your moisturizer. It might be sticky first, but if you wait for 20-30 second, it will fully absorb into your skin. I noticed those dry patched on the sides of my nose aren’t getting dry anymore throughout the day.
AQUA REOTIER THIRST QUENCHING GEL
Those bubbles in this gel are so appealing. I love gel moisturizers since my T-zone tend to get oilier close to summer. It’s perfect for normal, oily and combination skin. Gel moisturizers also usually have a cooling effect, so does this one.
AQUA REOTIER THIRST QUENCHING CREAM
I’ve used this cream more than the gel version and I must say: I love it. Usually, creams are suitable for dry to normal skin, however, with my oilier side T-zone, my skin feels better after applying this cream. It absorbs super quick, doesn’t leave that oily or greasy feeling and creates daily lasting moisturizing effect.
Overall, the products are for both skin types. I loved the essence and moisturizers and it didn’t have side effects on my face and no any bumps or break-outs were detected 😀 It keeps my skin hydrated and fulfills the promises. In case if the cream version is too thick for summer, you can leave it for the colder season. Give these a try by purchasing travel size products which are included in L’Occitane Limited Beauty Boxes and are on sale in all L’Occitane shops located in Baku 🙂 Don’t forget to mention you’ve heard about it in my blog! 🙂
