Ooh, this is really delicious! If you love sensual textures, this satiny, creme-balm formula is an absolute dream on the skin leaving it immediately supple and silky feeling. It’s rather a functional looking tin which doesn’t really reflect the luxurious nature of the formula although I think the colour is supposed to reflect the almond fruit, a key ingredient.
It’s also interesting to note that the brand sources their almonds from producers in the South of France where the almond tree had been all but forgotten. So, L’Occitane demand has put almond trees back in the landscape of the region – it’s one of the unseen, behind the scenes production level things that’s a great example of how beauty brands can tip the economy of an area.
The scent of L’Occitane Almond Delightful Body Balm is a blend of almond, amber and freesia and I’d say that the almond dominates but is very much improved by the light touch of freesia. I just don’t have any complaints about this product at all – it’s pricey at £26 but feels so luxurious and sumptuous that as a treat to self, worth every last penny! It’s HERE.
