Refreshing Hydration with the L’Occitane Aqua Reotier Collection

June 1, 2018


New L’Occitane Aqua Reotier Collection Skincare

As warmer weather approaches I’ve found myself switching things up in skincare with products that will keep skin clean, fresh but also well hydrated. The new L’Occitane Aqua Reotier Collection does just that with five easy-to-use options with a water-based line. The skincare contains three key ingredients: hyaluronic acid, glycerin, and calcium-rich Réotier spring water. I’ve partnered with L’Occitane to put the collection to the test. I have been such a fan of L’Occitane skincare as a whole so was really excited to try their new launch. I even brought everything with me on my recent trip to NYC.


The Aqua Reotier Water Gel Cleanser is my favorite item in the collection. It’s a foaming gel cleanser that lathers well and cleans the skin without any stripping. I find this perfect after workouts because it leaves the skin feeling calmer and refreshed. There’s no film left but the skin feels well hydrated and clean. It has a gentle aqua fresh scent that is not irritating.

The Aqua Reotier Moisture Prep Essence is something they recommend as Step Two in using this line. You can also incorporate it into your regular skincare routine with other products. It’s a plumping essence that helps prepare the skin to absorb moisturizer better. A little goes a very long way so you only need a tiny bit to apply all over the face. This is a step I often neglect in skincare in general but every time I use an essence I always tell myself I should do it more often. Skin is left noticeably softer and moisturizer adheres and absorbs into the skin better.

Step 3 is a moisturizer and they have two options including the Aqua Reotier Thirst-Quenching Cream or Aqua Reotier Thirst-Quenching Gel. The cream is better for normal to dry skin or if you need extra moisture at night. It’s a softer cream that melts into the skin and leaves a nice veil of moisture all over. My preference is for the gel which contains micro-bubbles that burst once you apply on the skin. It has a nice medium to lightweight feel which has been perfect for humid Florida weather. It also wears well under my foundations.

I’m one of the biggest suckers for face mists, especially ones with good packaging and the Aqua Reotier Fresh Moisturizing Mist does not disappoint. It spritzes a super fine even mist. The spray can be a quick burst or a little more continuous if you want to cover your whole face. It’s nicely hydrating without feeling heavy and doesn’t leave you looking too dewy.

Bottom line perfect for the upcoming warmer months. The products are light enough to be suitable for warm temperatures but still have enough moisture to keep skin well hydrated. I don’t think I’ll be able to live without the cleanser or face mist. You can find all the items at L’Occitane and there is a value set available as well. Stay tuned for more on my NY trip including a look at their Flatiron Flagship Store!
