L’Occitane introduces the magic of almonds
October 7, 2015
This new body duo from L’OCCITANE is so entrancing it’s difficult to explain. From the very first time I used it I fell irrevocable in love. The texture, the smell, the feeling on skin – just magic. AMANDE YOUTHFUL BODY contains two products that work together in perfect synergy to create a youth ritual for your body. The formulation has three patents pending in France. Patent 1 for the the combination of proteins and silicium in the fruit that smoothes and firms skin. Patent 2 in which the almond buds are combined with rosebuds because of the refining properties and lastly, Patent 3 in which almond leaf cells are extracted to fight signs of aging, dryness, slackening skin, undesirable tone, fine lines and any other irregularities. I have been concentrating it on my chest and decollete and my skin definitely looks smoother, fine lines appear less and my tone looks more even. The star of this show? The Almond tree. Cosmetically, almond shells exfoliate, cold pressed oil from almonds intensely nourish with fatty acids and vitamin A&E and skin stimulation due to extracts from the buds.
The VELVET SERUM had me at the word go. It comes in a 100ml pump action bottle for easy distribution. Vitamin C helps even out the skin and renews it’s youthfulness. Because of the vitamin C component I use it at night where I don’t risk sun exposure and causing spots. It absorbs nicely and leaves skin super silky. Proven results show that this serum texture is 32% more refined, skin looks 77% more youthful, tone is improved with 74%, skin immediately looks 81% smoother and fine lines look 71% reduced. This serum is applied before the balm below.
Rounding off your youthful body ritual, you will apply the VELVET BALM. It comes in a beautiful 200ml glass pot and has a rich, yet surprisingly absorbing formula. The melting formula feels extremely comforting once applied and targets the five signs of aging: dryness, skin slackening, lack of tone, fine lines and skin irregularities. Skin feels amazingly soft afterwards. According to proven results, this balm makes skin look 72% more plumped immediately, it nourishes with 91% more than normal and after a month of use skin is 72% more smooth and texture is 72% more even.
Another thing you can also look out for when you visit your L’Occitane store is the Velvet Hands cream. I did not get to try it, but apparently it contains sunscreens and also enriched with the same proteins as the other two products. It is said to protect the youthfulness of your hands, so I’m dying to give it a try.
