Almond Supple Skin Oil (REVIEW)

I think that I have found a new holy grail product. Something that might make me ditch all my lotions and body butters for good. As a dry skin sufferer, that is quite the statement.

In all honesty, I don't moisturize nearly as much or as often as I should. Largely due to the fact that I hate when a product just sits on the skin, or takes a long time to dry or absorb, or leaves me feeling tacky. There is nothing worse than taking a nice relaxing shower, getting all clean and then slathering on a lotion that ends up leaving you feeling like you need another shower. So I was quite curious, and to be fair, a bit skeptical, when I came across the Almond Supple Skin Oil from L'Occitane.

I knew that at the very least, I would likely enjoy the scent as I love all things almond (in particular almond crescents and bear claws....). However, I wasn't expecting to love the product just as much as I actually do. The first time I tried this oil out, I was blown away. It didn't leave my skin feeling greasy or oily and wasn't difficult to work with like some oil based products can be. I found that it absorbed into my skin rather quickly as well.

In terms of moisturizing, I was surprised at how well this product worked, as well as how long lasting it was! I didn't feel like my skin got dry at all during the day and I couldn't stop touching my skin because it felt so soft and hydrated...and HAPPY! Oh, and the scent? I love the scent...and paired with my vanilla perfume, I smell like a walking, talking cookie. It's a bit intoxicating to be honest! ;)

If you put off moisturizing because of the feeling it leaves you with, I would highly encourage you to try out this oil! It's really a lovely change from the chore that normal lotions can often be, smells great and really does the job it claims to. Oh, and the packaging is adorable! I love the simplistic and slightly retro feel! Bonus points too because the oil comes in a glass bottle rather than plastic! In my opinion, this oil earns high marks all around, and has made me want to try out the rest of the almond range. If you'd tried any other products from L'Occitane, I'd love to hear your thoughts/suggestions in the comments!
