L'Occitane Angelica Instant Hydration Mask

L'Occitane en provence has just added three new products to the already successful Angelica line: 
- instant hydration mask
- exfoliating gel
- hydration face mist

I'm a lover and believer of face masks but having combination skin, I have always moved towards purifying, mud/clay types. Years ago, little I knew that there's an actual difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin and that's why L'Occitane Instant Hydration Mask* is suitable for every skin type.
You can have oily skin and yet being dehydrated - like I have experienced in the last couple of years.
You can do a quick test: pinch your cheek and if the skin doesn't return to its original form fairly quickly, you can also suffer for dehydration.
This mask is great to restore elasticity to the face; it works effectively in 3 minutes and you'll see that your cheeks are instantly plumped and radiance. It's, also, very gentle and doesn't leave any redness afterwards so it's ideal as a last minute boost, before a special event.

The star ingredients are organic angelica water and essential oil and in fact the mask feels like a gel, very light and ultra fresh... such a joy to apply, especially in summer.
Angelica is quite an extraordinary plant, actually: I read, on L'Occitane website, that it can grow to a height of up to two meters in just few days, thanks to its capacity for self-hydration.
I always find it interesting to read the 'boring facts' on how the science and nature behind these products work and take inspiration from... call me geek! ;P

What I noticed is that you need to use it constantly/regularly to fully see the benefits and I have integrated it in my routine, using it 2 times per week. Also, I recommend to apply a generous thick layer to allow the skin to really soak it in.
Oh, and the scent is of delicate flowers (that I imagine is how angelica smells like)!

Have you tried this L'Occitane line before? I already have the Angelica UV Shield SPF40 on my list...
