Yay, this is my first L’Occitane product! I had made up my mind that I would start by picking a toner from L’Occitane and I got this one – Angelica Face Toner, which is suitable for all skin types. At the store, I wanted to pick the shampoos, conditioners, almond paste, well, literally everything 😛 There’s no end to greed you see, but for now, read on more about L’Occitane’s Angelica Face Toner.

My Take on L’Occitane Angelica Face Toner:
Starting off with the packaging – this watery, liquid, light green-tinged toner comes in a lime green, sturdy bottle. The fragrance is so amazing, it smells of some exotic flower, well angelica flower, I am totally in love with the scent. I want a perfume with angelica top notes, any suggestions? Coming back to the review, I was gung-ho about this toner because this one is alcohol free. I hate anything that causes a stinging sensation on my skin. Most of the toners have alcohol content, but this one is thankfully free of alcohol. The other great ingredients are angelica root oil, Amyris balsamifera bark oil, peppermint oil, etc. You would think all those oils might have broken me out, but it hasn’t!
It’s an extremely lightweight liquid that does not feel heavy, but! but, there’s glycerin in it which although hydrates my skin, leaves a slightly oily layer that I have to get rid of by spritzing rose water and then wiping it off with a cotton. People with very oily skin will not like such a layer, but those who have dry skin, normal skin, etc., will find it moisturizing enough. However, I need to do the rose water routine before I proceed with the moisturizer. I think I would really like in winters when even my oily skin needs a bit of extra moisturization.
This angelica toner feels soothing and refreshing on the skin. It leaves the skin fresh, soft, and supple. It tones the skin well and I see impurities on the cotton pad after using it.
I enjoy using it every morning and evening because it soothes the skin so well. It does not irritate or aggravate acne condition, it’s non-comedogenic you see. I can feel touchably soft and hydrated skin every time I use it and I am quite happy with the toner. It cleanses and gets rid of impurities well and does not dry out the skin in the process, totally loving the effect on my skin.
