Lightweight moisturizers for summer

loccitane aqua reotier products

Loccitane recently came out with a new skincare line Aqua Reotier, which is all about moisture. I got some products as pr-samples as a surprise – and boy, was that a nice surprise! As soon as I opened the package and saw the products, I was sold. They come in beautiful packaging and everything just screams freshness and hydration.

It just so happens, that my skin has been a bit on the dry side lately, thanks to that burning sun and summer, so I’m all for moisturizing products. These products have been perfect for summer – lightweight, very moisturizing and fresh.

L’OCCITANE Aqua Réotier

The products are packed with mineral water from the Reotier spring from Provence. That spring water is full of minerals and calcium, which are good for your skin. Besides the spring-water, all of the products also contain hyaluronic acid and glycerin.

I would recommend these products for all skintypes, with the exception of a very dry skin. In that case, you might need something heavier, as these are quite lightweight.

L’occitane Aqua Reotier Moisture Prep Essence

Having a combination skin and still suffering from dryness from time to time, it’s important to moisturize your skin the right way. I’ve found, that the best way to nourish your skin is to actually use light products. Instead of applying a thick cream on my face (that would just sit there), I apply light mists, serums and boosters – before actually applying my cream, which is quite light as well. Light consistencies tend to absorb better to my skin and they still work wonders.

This moisture prep essence has been one of my favorites lately. I use it like a serum before my cream. I first apply my toner, then possibly a mist, a serum, this product and lastly the cream. This absorbs quickly into the skin and feels just lovely. It leaves my face fresh. I would imagine this alone would be perfect for oily skin during summer – as I know from previous experience, that during Summer the skin doesn’t necessarily can’t take heavy products, but still needs some moisture.

L’occitane Aqua Reotier Ultra-Thirst Quenching Gel

This gel is very eye-catching, but besides looking lovely, it is. As it’s a gel, it’s very refreshing and moisturizing. It absorbs nicely into my skin and makes it plump. I like to use this during the day, as it’s perfect for under sunscreen or makeup as well.

L’occitane Aqua Reotier Ultra-Thirst Quenching Cream

But I somehow still prefer this cream version. I was sure I would love the gel, but I surprised myself. It says that it’s a cream, but I would put this in gel-cream category. There is just something about gel-creams, that hit the spot for me. I love the consistency in this – it’s so soft, but still fresh as a gel.

Both the gel and the gel-cream are equally moisturizing, so if you are thinking of buying either one of these, pick the consistency you like better.

SOS! New faves from Madara

madara sos

Madara is a finnish brand that offers eco certified organic products for hair, body and face. You can read more about Madara here.

I’m always scared of using products that are “for every skin type”. I have oily skin so I’m used to products that are meant just for that. This time I decided to try these products out anyway since I have heard that they really do suit many skin types. And you know what? I’m glad I did!

Madara SOS Hydra Repair Serum

This is perfect for my skin as a day cream even though it’s meant to be used under a cream. But as you may know oily skin doesn’t need much moisture. This thin serum absorbs quickly and is enough for my skin. It also works great under makeup.  I’ve fell in love with this and now it’s all I want to use.

Madara SOS Hydra Recharge Cream

The cream is very moisturising and nourishing so it works for me as night cream. I would think that this actually works for many skin types since it’s not crazy thick but not a very light cream either.

Madara SCRUB Exfoliating Oil-To-Milk-Scrub

An exfoliant with small microbeads. First you apply it to your face dry and gently exfoliate your skin. Then you apply water and let it foam. Then you rinse. This is a very gentle even though it has micro beads in it.

I love all of these products’ packaging. They are beautiful and have a luxury feeling to them with their light pastel colouring. Good work from Madara! These cost a bit more than what I’ve used to spend but then again these are awesome products and they are eco certified.
