L’Occitane en Province Almond Body Oil Review

I’ve been searching for a magical body oil for months now. While I’m really interested to try some of the tinted oils, like the classic from NARS, I also wanted something I use for hydration every day.

After much research, I headed to Nordstrom and bought L’Occitane’s Almond Supple Skin Oil. Of course, the reviews sucked me in because they touted how wonderful it smells. Sure enough! It smells like crushed vanilla almonds. Absolutely divine.


It’s said to be potent enough to diminish the appearance of stretch marks and cellulite while smoothing and moisturizing skin. I haven’t been using it long enough to tout any long-term benefits but I love the smell and wish I could bathe in it morning and night. Which you almost can because they also make a shower oil.

Truth be told, it’s winter in Colorado and the air is unbelievably dry. I’m not sure anything short of a straight shea butter could really moisturize and soften  your skin. But this does a pretty darn close job. I’ve been using it each morning and love catching a whiff of the light scent throughout the day. My skin does still feel nice at the end of the day, although I feel I need to reapply lotion at night as well.

It’s $40 for  3.4 oz bottle (yay something you can travel with!) and I’ve used about a third of it in a month. I might need something even thinker for winter, but this absorbs quickly, smells great and will be a summer beauty staple.

Buy it here for $40 from Nordstrom today! Remember, Nordstrom has free shipping and free returns, on the off-chance you don’t LOVE it!
