L' Occitane Almond Collection


I'v been using the new L' Occitane Almond Collection for just over a week now and I have to say the products couldn't have landed on my desk at a better time. As a new mum trying to get back into shape, products like the Tonic Body Oil and the Supple Skin Oil are exactly what I need. The Supple Skin Oil claims to provide long lasting hydration whilst helping to boost elasticity and improve firmness. Though I am yet to see any noticeable difference in the firmness of my skin I do really like this product. I have been using it along with a tub of Shea Butter as my daily moisturiser and I love it. Rather than spraying it direct to my skin, I spray a little on my hands and massage on to my thighs, buttocks, tummy and arm as suggested on the packaging. My skin feels smooth and nourished. I personally didn't like the L'Occitane Lighter Legs upon first use. The gel-cream left me feeling really sticky and uncomfortable. If you are to use this product I suggest not walking or wearing footwear till at least 15 minutes after application. It is one of those products that you have to save for your pamper days. The presence of peppermint oil and menthol helps to creates a nice sensation when massaged into skin to relieve the feeling of tired legs.

Because I am already using the Supple Skin Oil in the morning, I have chosen to use the Tonic Body Oil in the evening. Although both products suggest you use them morning and evenings, I'm finding it hard to decide which I prefer out of the two. Whilst 70% of the 31 women who tried the Tonic Body Oil said their skin felt firmer, 65% said their skin looked firmer after using the Supple Skin Oil. The oils are not light but they really do sink into the skin without fuss. The Tonic Body Oil targets the same areas as the Supple Skin Oil but it contains other ingredients which help to refine and tone the body.

Now onto my favourite product from the collection. The Smooth Hands is a product that does exactly what it says on the tin. The light cream moisturises and smoothes the skin on hands. As a mum I'm always in a hurry, I don't have time to wait for a product to dry that is why I love this product. A pea sized amount gets rid of "ashy hands" without me having to stop everything I'm doing.

The Almond Lighter Legs is priced at £30, the Supple Skin Oil is £35, the Tonic Body Oil is £35 and Smooth Hands is £14.00.
