- Why the beauty fluids from Douces Angevines are better than a cream?
Discover why our care and beauty fluids are different from a traditional cream.
1. Because it is infinitely more concentrated
In a cream, even organic, there is water, a lot of water. A cosmeto-fluid is 100% pure vegetal extracts. So it is:
100% active principles, very good for the skin and an extremely high concentration of plants and flowers: 20 plants in every fluid on average and more than 40 for the intense face range. Economic: you only need a few drops to satisfy your skin.
2. Because the fluid texture is ideal
There is no need of « consistency factors », essential in the creams, or occlusive waxes. Sweet and sensual, the fluids melt into the skin without leaving any greasy film and they are perfectly assimilated, thanks to their similarity with human sebum. Your skin breathes, the pores of the skin are unclogged.
3. Because they are free from preservatives, even natural
Thanks to their antiseptic properties, the fluids preserve themselves, there is no need of additives, even natural !

- The basic gestures in day and night cares: fluidity, nothing more simple !
Here are 3 methods of effective and fast application. Choose one according to your mood or style :
The romantic: with the dropper, I squeeze one fluid drop on every cheekbone. With the fingertips, I spread the fluid over my face and my neck, with gentle caress. In a few seconds, my skin is feeling fresh !
The methodical : with the dropper, I squeeze one fluid drop on the pad of the forefinger and spread it over the skin. Once the fluid is absorbed, I repeat the operation with another drop. One minute and 4 drops later, my face is radiating !
The warm: with the dropper, I squeeze several drops of fluid into the palm of the hand. I slowly warm it in my hands. Then I cover my face with my hands and spread the fluid (face and neck) with a warm caress.

- Can we use the cosmeto-fluids in case of pregnancy ?
The use of essential oils into the cosmetics requires a very specific expertise from the part of the manufacturer. In the Douces Angevines range, we advice pregnant women, as a precaution, to avoid the following products, even if they are not exclusively composed of essential oils :
- Gazelle, the firming sculpting product, but we understand that being thin is not the priority during this period.
- Bois d’Amyris, Baume de l’Himalaya, Lotion Timoustic, Lotion d’Achille.
The other products can be used, by following the product recommendations written on the flask, on the catalogue or on the product sheet of the boutique. Some of our fluids are even important allies during this period: Baume de Diane will prevent from the appearance of stretch marks on the chest and the hips, l’Amour aux 3 Oranges or la Fée Noisette will leave the skin soothen and soften.
- Do we use the face cares Douce Angevines as serums, under a cream ?
All our products are ready for use on the skin. The cosmeto-fluids have a complex and harmonious composition, there is no need, and it is even too bad, to add something or to superpose a cream.
The dosage is simple: a few drops (3 to 5 drops) into the palm of the hand, to spread with a light massage movement on your face and your neck (see the recommendations on the flask, the catalogue or on the product sheet of the boutique). According to your habits, you can apply your make-up just a few minutes after the application of the cosmeto-fluid.
- Can we expose ourselves to the sun after we use cosmeto-fluids ?
You can use our face cares without any danger. Concerning the body cares, avoid to expose yourself to the sun just after applying l’Amour aux 3 Oranges, since it contains several essential oils of citrus fruit in quite important proportions, that can react to the sun.
L’Eté will prepare your skin to the sun but it does not protect from the radiations and does not replace a solar protection.
Après le Soleil refreshes and softens the skin. Avoid exposing yourself to the sun just after the application: the macerate of St John’s wort which enriches Après le Soleil, is a famous anti-inflammatory, but it can, on the contrary, increase the effect of the sunshines.
- Why using a night care for the face ?
During the night, the skin regenerates, it needs to breathe, what does not allow a classic cream. The cosmeto-fluids are skin-friendly, they do not substitute to its natural functions and let the skin breathe.
Along the years, the elimination and regeneration functions are less active and the night cares Douces Angevines, as precious allies of the skin, are going to stimulate naturally these self-regulating process of the skin.
- Can we superpose several Cosmeto-fluids ?
Body fluids can be used on a daily basis. Do not hesitate to apply several fluids at the same time! For example, Baume de Diane for the breast, Bois d’Amyris to keep light legs the whole day and l’Idéale to complete and nourish the skin from the head to the feet. The fragrances of the different fluids are totally compatible and the combinations reveal beautiful olfactory synergies. It does not prevent from applying an eau de toilette or a perfume.
In some cases and according to your wish, you can superpose face cares: the purifying care Précise can be used locally on the T zone or on imperfections, and then you can apply your day care (Aube d’été, Flamenca or Maravilia). You can proceed in the same way with Eglantine on areas that would be extremely dried.
- Teenage skin, which solution ?
The Précise care can be used by teenagers on greasy skins and areas with imperfections (face, neckline…). To complete, for a purifying treatment, you can add 3 to 4 drops of Précise in the Opaline mask, to apply once a week.
