L'Occitane Amande Supple Skin Oilnedelja, september 25, 2011
I absolutely adore L'Occitane's Almond shower oil. For me scent of the product very important and this shower oil smells amazing. So naturally I wanted something with the same scent. I used to own Blossom Dew from the same line, but the scent was so disappointingly weak that I sold it. I received a lot of testers of the body cream from the almond line and it's so lovely. It leaves your skin really soft and silky, but the scent isn't the same as the shower oil, however, it's still super nice. I tried the Supple Skin oil in the shop and the scent wasn't pleasing at all. It smelled a bit like play dough, like a mix of plastic and almond, so I never came round to actually buying it. Don't let those (possibly) old tester bottles fool you! I finally purchased it, I just took a risk and it paid of. Initially the scent is a bit different than the shower oil, it's a bit more fruity, but then it turns into that gorgeous almond scent I love and adore.
It's a dry oil, but it's not as dry as the Nuxe one. It's still quite greasy, but it sinks into the skin in minutes, although I don't put clothes on right away. I use it right after a shower as I find it sinks into the skin faster. It's quite a thick oil, so it doesn't spread that easy on dry skin, but this is not really such a big issue (at least for me). I also use it on my hair (both dry and wet). It leaves the skin really soft and moisturised. It's a fantastic product for people who suffer from dry skin. The scent lasts for a long time, but it's not super strong.
The product comes in a classy glass bottle with a pump. Unfortunately it's a bit of a challenge to hold the bottle with greasy hands, so that's a minus. But it looks so pretty in your bathroom. The pump is great, you can really control the amount you want.
All in all a great product if you feel like pampering yourself a bit. It is super expensive (too expensive if you ask me!), so buy it only if you like the L'Occitane's almond scent.
