The Almond Supple Skin Oil from L’Occitane is a “firming and moisturizing body oil that protects skin and restores elasticity and suppleness.” The Supple Skin Oil contains high concentrations of Almond Oil along with the essential oils peppermint, palmarosa and immortelle.
L’Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil is an indulgence I allow myself because it’s fragrance is a delight that I can’t quite deny myself. I’m sensitive to fragrances with such a finicky nose, so when I find one that brings me such pleasure, no matter what form it might take, I allow myself that indulgence. The Almond in the Almond Supple Skin Oil isn’t the one you will find in a kitchen. The fragrance is supple, clean, warm and incredibly inviting. It just so happens to be that the oil itself is an exceptional body moisturizer as well.
The Supple Skin Oil is a product geared toward woman during pregnancy for prevention of slack skin and stretch marks. I find it best to apply this oil to damp skin, it will cover with more ease while allowing you to use less product. You can very quickly run through this oil which is another reason I suggest applying it to damp skin. The oil is a heavier one and will certainly provide optimal moisture even when diluted. The Supple Skin Oil absorbs very quickly and wont leave you slick or greasy in any sense. What you can expect is intensely deeply nourished skin, a slight sheen, and a gorgeous fragrance.
The Almond Supple Skin Oil is top-notch as a moisturizer and gets a big recommendation from me. However with a $40 price tag I would hope this little bottle would stick around a bit longer than it does. Ultimitaley it is the scent that keeps me coming back. The ‘Amande’ line from L’Occitane also includes a ‘Smoothing Milk’ and a lovely moisturizing ‘Shower Oil’.
