L'Occitane Amande/Almond Velvet Balm & Velvet Serum

Pampering skin is good, and after (and during) this winter it's a must. L'Occitane's newest will get you supple, hydrated skin with two new luxury products. Go ahead , treat yourself.

Both of these fall under the Amande line, Almond Velvet.  Both however have a light floral smell, less almond-y , its soft, light and rather pretty.

I was most intrigued by the body serum. Serums for body are not common, I've seen a couple that looked good but only got a chance to test one quickly years ago. I liked the idea of it though and L'Occitane's doesn't disappoint.  This is light but not too thin and feels /looks like a gel/lotion hybrid . It sinks in very fast but leaves skin feeling immediately softer.  Ingredients include 2% Vitamin C for brightening over time and use , along with Sweet Almond Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil and Rose Centafolia Extract . 

Almond Velvet Youthful Body Balm is the heavy duty body cream . This a thicker balm and it needs a little time to sink in but not much. It has the same light scent as the Serum with loads of shea butter along with Sweet Almond Oil and extracts  and Sunflower Oil. 

L'Occitane Almond Velvet Balm & Serum will be available early this month at usa.loccitane.com

Almond Velvet Youthful Body Balm is $60

Almond Velvet Youthful Body Serum is $52

I received a sample in the mail and really like it. I can't buy it online yet. Hope it's in the local store - I must have it NOW!!
