Review: L'Occitane Angelica Instant Hydration Mask.

L'Occitane Angelica Instant Hydration Mask♦ (£19 - 75ml)
My skin is currently going a little haywire for reasons I can't even begin to imagine, sometimes it's super blemish prone and other times it's incredibly dry and tight. I'm a huge skincare junkie and it's super rare that I review skincare products because I think they are so subjective. What works for you may not work for me and vice versa. Every now and then a product comes a long that really impresses me and I often get questions on the best products for dry skin so I thought I would give my two cents on my new favourite mask.

When my skin is feeling dry there is no other product that does as good a job at offering instant hydration as the L'Occitane Angelica Instant Hydration Mask. This is a gel mask that goes on clear so you wouldn't look totally crazy if you were wanting to apply this on a long haul flight, which I think this would be incredible for. Sadly I don't have any tropical holidays planned so I have just been using this whenever my skin needs a little pick me up. You can leave it on for as little as three minutes and it will still work it's magic so if you're in need of a quick fix this is the product for you. I often leave it on for longer just because it feels so lovely on the skin & I love a little pamper session every now and then. I simply gently remove the excess with a dry cotton wool pad & then spritz my face with either the Caudalie Beauty Elixir or the Avene Thermal Water Spray afterwards. If I have time I tend to let my skin sit for about 15 minutes before moisturising to let the beneficial ingredients from the mask work their magic for as long as possible, but when I'm a little short for time I find applying moisturiser directly after removing the mask is perfect too.

I reach for this whenever I feel like my skin needs it but I would say I have been using it around twice a week for the past month and my skin overall seems to be a lot brighter, hydrated and more plump than it was a few months ago. In terms of the scent I'm not the biggest fan but it's certainly not unpleasant. It's quite floral and natural but it's not overpowering and I actually think it's something that has grown on me over the past couple of weeks. At £19 for 75ml it's certainly not the cheapest mask around but you only need a small amount each time and skincare is something I'm always willing to invest in when I see such positive results.

Have you ever tried this from L'Occitane?
What is your all time favourite face mask?

  1. I have tried this mask and it is pretty good, I use it for a bit of a pick me up as and when I need it as my skin isn't really dry or anything like that.

    I have tried the exfoliating gel and protection lotion from this range which is really good - the smell is definitely very fresh and something that takes a bit of getting used to! xx
