Hi my beautiful buddies, hows life? We have heard it over time that our skin needs a three way care system daily i.e Cleansing, Toning and Moisturizing (CTM).But we often forget that our skin demands to get rid of that pollution and dead cells too. So instead of the former one, the daily skin care now has four steps- Cleansing, Scrubbing, Toning and Moisturising (CSTM). And to address this new addition in skincare, the market is flooded with facial scrubs.So today we are also going to talk about one such scrub which I’ve used repeatedly and which doesn’t feel like a scrub. Its L’Occitane’s Exfoliating Gel with Organic Angelica water and Essential oil.

Angelica is an exceptional plant that grows incredibly fast due to its hydration capabilities. L’OCCITANE has placed this amazing plant at the heart of a complete face care range to intensely rehydrate and revitalize the skin. Both angelica essential oil and angelica water have been used in the collection of face care products which help to restore the skin’s natural beauty.

About the brand:

Product Description:

A beautiful translucent green tube carries this scrub. The silver colored cap is broad and easy to use. The front side of the tube carries the name of the scrub in both English and French with little emphasis on the brand name.

It has a fascinating texture – it’s soft, but still exfoliating.It is somewhat similar to a gommage style product, which uses the rubbing motion of the fingers combined with a softer texture for exfoliation.

The beads are round and vary in size.

The exfoliating beads are so soft that it’s not abrasive on the skin. It smells lovely and fresh.
