|L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil Review|
I remember perusing the L'Occitane shop in the Lake District a few months ago. I still recall the early beginnings of the flood at Windermere and little did I know it would be such a disaster. But during that particularly rainy day hubby and I did a little shopping instead of a walking trek, and as usual we were lured into L'Occitane. As much as I don't like to admit it, I am one of those who tends to be intimidated by beauty sales personnel. I tend to do my research first before entering a shop so I have review-based facts and have a pre-planned direct approach to a shop.
However, at this L'Occitane branch I was feeling spontaneous, the shop lady was especially nice. So nice in fact I felt comfortable. I asked her what her favourite product was from the shop. She had trouble deciding which one, but one stood out from her descriptions and it was L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil.
L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil is a delicously scented body oil. It applies from a spritzer applicator that diffuses the oil. I take 2 spritzes per leg and 1 spritz an arm. It applies great on the skin and takes around 5 minutes to soak up. It leaves you with that J.Lo glow.
It's a light oil, not quite as thick as my winter favourite Vaseline Intensive Care Cocoa Radiant Body Gel Oil. In terms of application and the spritzer, the feel is quite similar to NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi Usage Dry Oil.
I love applying this after a shower when the skin is just patted dry. It's quite luxurious, relaxing, and perfect for 'me time' days. The scent is quite powerful though and dear hubby has somehow grown a dislike for the scent (and I just can't see why; It really is delicious).
One bottle lasts ages - I've had mine for a good 6 months, though I do pick and choose which dates I want it though. I would suspect if used everyday, it will perhaps last 3-6 months, of course depending on how much product you use in each go.
If you love sweet almond scents and are looking for a moisturiser for the summer, I would recommend L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil. It has kept a constant spot on my dressing table, to apply on a whim. It's that good.
