Summer Skincare Routine

Venice, CA

Ahhh sweet summertime!  My favorite season is almost here :)  I try to be outside as much as possible and schedule in as many trips – even just a roadtrip – at least every other weekend in the summer months!  With all of the heat, change in scenery and dehydrating airplane air. I need a solid skincare routine that is ultra moisturizing.

My absolute favorite French beauty brand; L’Occitane, who I have been a devout fan and customer of for years – just sent me their entire Aqua Reotier line and let me tell you – it’s life changing!!!!  First of all, let’s talk scent – I can’t stand anything that’s heavily perfumed. This has such a nice, subtle cotton/fresh air type of scent. Not only does it smell refreshing – every product from the line feels instantly refreshing.  The products are all infused with fresh water from the Reotier springs which run through Provence, and hyaluronic acid.

I’ve been keeping their moisturizing mist in my bag at all times and spritz a little morning, noon and night for an extra boost.  It’s perfect to travel with – you can just spritz the second you step off the plane.  Their gel cleanser is gentle enough to use morning and night – my favorite time to use it is right after I take off my makeup to remove excess makeup/impurities.  I used to not use a cleanser after my makeup wipes. Until I learned that wipes don’t actually take off all of your makeup!  So a cleanser is 100% necessary.

Before applying my moisturizer, I’ve been using a pea-sized amount of the moisture prep essence which acts as a preliminary layer of moisture.  It allows the moisturizer and/or gel cream to really sink in. Also, it adds to that overall refreshed feeling we all want and crave!  The ultra thirst-quenching gel has thousands of micro-bubbles energize tired skin and make it feel more plump.  It’s non-oily and cooling – ideal for tired, dry skin – yes please!  And now, I saved perhaps, my favorite item for last; the ultra thirst-quenching cream which is so silky smooth, and leaves your skin feeling glowy and fresh.  I really fell in love with the texture – and the fact that a little goes a long way so this product will last you a while.  Plus its under $30 (so you really can’t go wrong!) and extremely travel friendly.

If you’re curious about any or all of these products – I suggest getting L’Occitane’s gorgeous collection box which includes the cleanser, cream, gel, and prep essence all for under $70.  Don’t forget you can shop all of my favorite L’Occitane products (like their lavender bubble bath or their divine oil) below!
