Summer is here, which means it’s time to be SUPER obsessive about your skin. Not just put a little moisturizer on and some sunscreen. Nope. Your skin deserves more than that. Much more! Summer means hot temperatures, sun-kissed skin, ocean water baths, and spending as much time outside as possible. It also means it’s time to reset and renew everything that winter took away. And that’s where the new L’OCCITANE Purifying Mask comes in handy!!

This week I’m currently traveling through France and I couldn’t be more excited! This trip is for work, but it also involves A LOT of play time. I’m taking this business trip as a time to reset and soak up some new places and new faces. It’s time to meet new people, experience different cultures, and eat ALL the food. Because sometimes you just need a little time away to experience what the world has to offer and come home refreshed!

But something I don’t want to miss out on while I’m experiencing the world is keeping up with my skincare. Pampering your skin should be part of your travel agenda. I know it is for me! That’s why I packed the new L’OCCITANE Purifying Mask in my suitcase to help with any excess oil I accumulate while flying multiple hours and spending lots of time in the car. After my 15 hour travel day on Saturday, I put this mask on as soon as I got to my room to help de-grease and exfoliate. It leaves your skin feeling purified and soft with a renewed glow that I DESPERATELY needed after not sleeping for 36 hours. Why is it so hard to sleep on airplanes?!


 

Sure, you may look like the witch from Wicked when you put it on, but once you wash it off, your skin will have a beautiful and renewed glow that looks like you actually slept over the past two days…unlike me. Jet lag is real. You know what else is real? The ingredients in the mask! The L’OCCITANE Purifying Mask is made with nature’s vitamins, fruits, veggies and freshly-cut organic Provencal thyme. These ingredients create a mattifying, purée-like texture that absorbs excess oil and exfoliates skin. And all you need is 5 minutes! I may have had it on longer since I think I fell asleep sitting up since I was so relaxed. There’s no way to know. Time is a concept that I no longer understand.

How dramatic am I about time right now? Get it together, Juli.

 

 

L’OCCITANE has so many amazing products like their Aqua Réotier Fresh Moisturizing Mist and Ulta Thirst-Quenching Gel, both of which I packed with me to France to keep my skin hydrated and happy throughout the entire week of my trip, especially while flying. L’OCCITANE uses sustainably sourced ingredients to create their products and works with local farmers in France that share their same core values. It’s so fitting that I’m in France right now and have seen L’OCCITANE stores around every corner, even in the airport! If you haven’t tried their products yet, you’re going to love how your skin looks perfect with a renewed glow when you add them to your skin routine! Their Immortelle Divine Youth Oil is still a part of my weekly routine and I LOVE it! Now excuse me, I’m looking extra dull and tired right now, which also means it’s time to mask up and look alive again!

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. This isn’t really related to this post, but can you make a post or talk more about Retin-A and why you stopped using it? Did you see a lot of changes in your skin (both good and bad) when you stopped using it? I have been using Retin-A for just under a year and am thinking about discontinuing it and was wondering how your skin reacted with discontinuing use. Thank you!

    1. so when you use retin-a, you get cell turnover to promote collagen and thicken the semis, but what is critical is that it shuts down you body’s ability to create its own vitamin a, which is critical to maintain it. that can lead to a 3% reduction in thickness annually, meaning the skin continues to thin. my esthetician has worked with hundreds of people who have used retin-a for years and their skin is crepey and thin. so she recommends a vitamin a propionate and chorally corrected vitamin a which doesn’t cause the same thinning. and yes, i’ve seen positive changes from not using retin-a! i’m happy i stopped using it!

  2. Hi! Also not related to this post but can you tell me your opinion on using led lights during facials or even the at home masks? have you tried this before?

    Thanks!
