Sheer Luxury !

I hauled the L'Occitane Almond range set a while back containing the shower scrub, shower oil, milk concentrate and hand cream. In today's post I am reviewing Almond Milk Concentrate. If I had to describe this product in one word, it would be luxury, it is sheer and pure luxury !


What the company says

Enriched with powerful almond extracts, the Almond Milk Concentrate melts into the skin to help the skin look firmer and smoother while bringing 48 hours of hydration.
Skin feels nourished and comfortable thanks to the association of almond milk and oil, which helps to moisturise and soften the skin. A new complex, associating walnut seed and almond extract, helps to protect skin elasticity while stimulating cellular renewal, making skin seem smoothed and tightened. Skin looks firmer and re-densified thanks to the action of almond proteins and a silicium derivative.





L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate comes in a heavy glass jar. The glass packaging, has it's  usual cons, like not being travel friendly and easy to break. But, that being said, the packaging is stunning to look at. The cream is not thick like usual body butters, but has perfect consistency and feels very light on the skin and hydrates beautifully

The cream feels very luxurious and sinks right away into the skin, which I love. This product absolutely has no greasy feeling to it. It leaves my skin feeling soft, smooth and moisturised for long and is perfect for winters.

It has a very subtle sweet almond fragrance, same as that of the shower oil and hand cream from this range. I love, love the scent !

I am not sure if my skin feels firmer after using this, but in terms of hydration and feel, it is awesome and I absolutely adore this as a body cream.  

Highly recommended if you are a fan of L'Occitane or just love to indulge in luxury body care products ! Definitely sniff and feel at your local counter and decide for yourself. 


Have you tried this ? Do you love it as much as I do ?

    1. Its so so good Emma, make this the next one you try from your stash. I know body lotions take such a long time to get through, glad me and hubby shade the same. I have 4 body lotions to go through after I am done with this.
