Sometimes less is more, there are days I wish I can use minimum makeup on daily basis. Maybe leave home with bare face wearing only skincare and sun protection. Recently, I have a chance to try out L’Occitane Iris Angelica Sublime Essence and Sublime Beauty Cream. These two products combinations is good for those who wish to have a nude and natural looking skin. Plus I love the sweet and fresh flower scent of these products.
Here is a little briefing about the two genius flowers, Iris Angelica products contains a patented combination of two slender flowers from France, each with an exceptional property: Angelica from the Drôme region which is an expert in hydration, and Iris Florentina from the Hérault region a precious ingredient known in pharmacology for its radiance-enhancing action.
How does Iris and Agelica gives the benefits to our skin? The organic extracts of White Iris (Iris Florentina from the Hérault region) and Blue Iris (Iris Pallida from Italy) promote the epidermis’s cell renewal process, to visible reduce redness and help prevent the appearance of blemishes. While the organic Angelica Water boosts the circulation of water in the skin’s cells by stimulating the production of aquaporins (the skin’s own water network). Organic Angelica Essential Oil, on the other hand, helps protect skin against free radicals and improves skin’s elasticity.
