L'Occitane Amande Firming & Smoothing Milk Concentrate

L'Occitane's Amande Firming & Smoothing Milk Concentrate* ($59 CAD/7 oz.) is a rich, luxurious cream that's meant to nourish and firm your skin. I love the idea of a double duty cream, so I was excited to give this product a go!

"Enriched with powerful almond extracts, our Almond Milk Concentrate melts into the skin in a creamy and silky texture, to help the skin look firmer and smoother while bringing 48 hours of hydration. Skin feels nourished and comfortable thanks to the association of almond milk and oil, which helps to moisturize and soften the skin." - L'Occitane

L'Occitane's Amande Firming & Smoothing Milk Concentrate comes packaged in a heavy glass jar that feels very fancy! The silver cap screws off, and you can instantly smell the delicious almond scent. I find this scent to be really yummy, and it does lightly linger on my skin for a few hours. This formula is a medium consistency - not too thin and not too thick. I would describe this formula as being somewhere in between a lotion and a gel. The cream absorbs into my skin almost instantly, offering a great dose of hydration without the heaviness of a body butter. My skin is left feeling silky smooth, hydrated, and lightly scented - what more could you want? Well, L'Occitane also claims that this cream helps to tone and firm your skin. I haven't been using this cream for that purpose, but in a study with 28 women using this cream for 4 weeks, 88% saw firmer and more elastic skin (source).

While this body lotion is quite pricey, I do think that it's a lovely product. If you have some extra cash to pamper yourself, then this is an excellent option! Once again, L'Occitane has impressed me! What's your favourite product from L'Occitane?

  7. I love the scent of the entire Amande line. Did you find this cream a bit "tacky" on your skin? I liked it, but in the summer it made my legs stick to chairs and things...or maybe it's just me...
