L'Occitane's Almond Mist Concentrate is a keeper
I was looking high and low for a good body lotion. There are lovely ones that I love such as my Dove ProAge Body Lotion but it's just too heavy for summer. It's perfect for winter though, absolutely one of my favs. What I'm searching for is a lightweight body lotion, moisturizes my skin like a heavyweight and of course a great scent seals the deal.
I've found just the perfect answer for a great summer lotion in almonds lately. I'm going totally nutty over almonds. They smell great and they are perfect moisturizers. Guess which brand it's from? No prizes if you've already guessed L'Occitane. And, mind you, you can always trust L'Occitane to make great bath and body products and my baby here is no exception. We're talking about L'Occitane's Almond Mist Concentrate. Ooh, I'm so in love with it. It absorbs right into the skin after application. Leaves no greasy residue, which I hate especially during hot and humid summer days. It's literally kissed my dry patches goodbye. I don't even need to reapply as my skin is soft, smooth and supple the whole day. This mist concentrate really gives meaning to a little goes a long way. I only need to use very little of it on my hands and legs. My bottle still looks brand new. And a big bonus, it smells heavenly. It's rich almond scent is intoxicatingly sweet and fresh. I do confess I do apply it more than needed most times because I absolutely adore it's scent. It's like a body lotion and fragrance rolled into one.
A little tip: It's great to be applied after you have shaved or waxed, to combat dryness and the tightening feeling on skin
The only down side to it would be, it claims to firm your skin too. But honestly I don't see much of that. I don't really have problematic jiggy areas. Oops, I hope I didn't just jinx myself there.
You should try it for yourself. It's super lightweight and my skin is super soft like a baby's bottom. I smell like a dream too. If you've noticed me smelling my hands quite often, you would know why *wink*
