L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate

Description

Rich in almond oil and almond milk, this body cream nourishes and softens the skin. The blend of silicium and almond proteins, which are similar to collagen, effectively fights skin slackening by restoring skin’s support tissue. The light, creamy texture melts into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. Skin feels satiny-smooth and is enveloped in a fresh and delicate fragrance. This product is ideal for nourishing skin after hair removal or shaving, due to a formula rich in soothing almond oil.

Directions

Helps to firm, tone and smooth & spongy; skin on hips, thighs, stomach and buttocks. Using a bath mitt, sponge or Almond Skin Toning Massager, apply Almond Delicious Paste body scrub to target areas. Gently massage, adding a little water if consistency feels thick. Rinse off in a shower, using delectable Almond Shower Oil to cleanse. Moisturize with Almond Milk Concentrate and then treat immediately with Almond Shaping Gel to tone and redefine.

Summary
L'Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate is a great relief for dry skin, such as mine. Though the title says it is milk, but in reality it feels like more of a cream with rich and dense texture. It indeed greatly moisturizes the skin, making it supple and nourished. The problem, however, lies in the absorption the process of which is upsettingly slow that, in its turn, limits the use of the milk (it can only be used as an evening treatment, because using it during the day would mean smudging everything you touch). I like that the scent is not abusive in any way, rather on the contrary - it is barely felt and therefore the milk can be used also by men due to its non-existent odour. The absence of nasty ingredients is also a plus. To the disadvantages (apart from absorption) I can add the heaviness of the packaging - not a thing to be carried around or taken on trips, and it is relatively high price.
Despite its several downsides, the positive effect that it creates for dry skin is undeniable and I can recommend it to those who have such type of skin.

Summary
I think the texture lets down this product, because the oils separate very fast after opening and I think it should be mixed up all the time before use. Also it not seems like a perfect cream, like a wrongly made jelly with liquids around...

Strongest points
A thicker texture and easy to apply.
Weakest points
Maybe a little overspecialised, pricy and I wasn't keen on the scent.
Summary
This is most definitely a thicker body moisturiser and so maybe not ideal for everyone and certainly not ideal for all situations. I quite liked the thicker consistency which is surprisingly easy to apply and whilst I wouldn't say it absorbs quickly it doesn't linger too long and it doesn't feel uncomfortable. A little over specialised for me but interesting anyway. I wasn't keen on the scent but it is light and doesn't transfer. Although I think it's a little pricy it is fair to say that you can use it sparingly. Not one for me but okay.

Delightfully scented.

User Reviews

Strongest points
Lovely scent, anti-ageing properties, widely available, richly hydrating, not tested on animals.
Weakest points
More expensive than family brands, heavy glass container.
Summary
This mid-textured cream comes in large glass container, which gives it presence int the bathroom and great for a gift. However it is not so useful for travel. The price is a little expensive but the delicious scent and anti-ageing properties make it a great product. Richly hydrating and deliciously scented, this product is quickly absorbed and delightfully luxurious.

I adore this lotion,the texture is great not runny but quite thick.
It absorbs so well into your skin and the subtle almond scent is absolutely devine.
My skin felt silky soft after use and with a gorgeous subtle scnt.
I wish i had a massive pot of this but it is expensive so although i love it,i cant justify the price tag
highly highly recommend :)
