L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil Review-
For someone like me who lives to smell things & bask in the fragrance of products, this particular luxurious range from L’Occitane is an absolute nemesis for their wallet :'( I was hooked to the smell ever since I smelled the shower oil at the store & since then, I have always had the shower oil & this supple skin oil (both madly overpriced) with me & yes (hold your breath) have & will repurchase 😐 This is pure love.
What L’Occitane Says-
A quickly absorbed indulgent body oil formulated with more than 50 percent almond oil to help skin feel firmer, smoothed, and hydrated.
What it is formulated to do:
Reveal a satiny-smooth body with one of L’Occitane’s cult favorites. Thanks to more than 50 percent almond oil, naturally rich in omega 6, and camelina oil, rich in omega 3, the Almond Smoothing and Beautifying Supple Skin Oil helps skin feel nourished and more supple. Its luxurious texture melts into the skin and leaves it with a subtle scent of fresh almonds. Hydrated for up to 48 hours, skin is as soft as satin.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
-Almond Oil: Naturally rich in omega 3 fatty acids.
Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Oleyl Alcohol, Fragrance, Camelina Sativa Seed Oil, Helian Thus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Tocopherol, Dioleyl Tocopheryl Methylsilanol, Limonene, Coumarin, Linalool, Citral.
How to Use-
-Apply with a spray, massaging into the skin with upward circular motions.
-Focus on zones concerned by skin slackening (thighs, buttocks, tummy, and arms).
-Perfect to mix with loose bronzing powder.
Price: 3090/- INR for 100ml (sheer madness)
My take on the L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil-
The supple skin oil comes in a luxurious heavy glass bottle packaging with a spray pump dispenser :-/ Eh? Even though the spray pump is nice, the oil does tend to squirt & fly everywhere so, not a fan 😐 Also, the heavy glass bottle is nice to look at but unsuitable for travelling.
The oil is colorless, very lightweight & runny in texture & is a dream to slather on damp/dry skin <3 It immediately gets absorbed into my skin without leaving any greasy/sticky residue or feel 🙂 My skin instantly looks & feels hydrated, soft & supple.
I have been crazy enough to try it on my whole body & face & it has never let me down! I loved how supple & non-greasy my skin looked when I woke up in the morning & I always squirt a couple of pumps on my arms & legs post a bath. I would have loved to slather it all over day & night but owing to the crazy price, I am pretty stingy with it 😛
The hydration of the supple skin oil is great & easily lasts on my skin for the entire day after which I usually reapply before I go to bed if my skin is feeling a bit dry, otherwise doesn’t need reapplication 🙂
The fragrance of the entire almond range is to die for as I have already said so many times in my previous reviews & this oil is the strongest of them all in terms of fragrance <3 The nutty, delectable almond fragrance easily lasts on my skin the whole day & I can sniff it on my clothes/sheets even next day! True love smells like this <3
Pros of the L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil:
1> Luxurious packaging.
2> Very lightweight texture- applies & gets absorbed very easily.
3> Makes skin immediately soft & smooth 🙂
4> Works great even on face along with whole body.
5> Hydration lasts the entire day & needs seldom reapplication 🙂
6> The delicious almond fragrance is to die for & lasts for the whole day & more!
Cons of the L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil:
I cannot get over the price 🙁 It’s so terribly pricey!
The heavy glass bottle is unsuitable to travel with.
Swatch of the L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil-
My Rating: 4.999999/5!
Do I recommend the L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil?
L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil is a cult product which spells ultimate luxury for me! A deliciously fragranced hydrating lightweight skin oil, it makes skin so soft & supple & can even be used on the face <3 My heart bleeds every time I buy it because of its extravagant price, but I CANNOT live without it. Highly recommended!
