L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate: A Body Moisturizer Worth Waiting 10 Years For

Dear L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate, you should just know that I love you. Forever yours, -C


Was it actually 10 years ago? Or perhaps it’s 5…? Hmmm, no, I’m pretty sure it’s 10…

Gawd, I feel like I’m losing the sense of time like a nonagenarian… Wait, is that because I’m turning THIRTY at the end of the month???

Oops, sorry, I forgot you were there!

I was just trying to remember how long ago I received the sample of L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate that made me fall head over heels for it. I wanted to purchase the full size RIGHT AWAY, but stopped in my tracks when I saw the price tag.

€39 ($50) for a 200 ml body moisturizer was just too much for a broke college student, so I reluctantly put it back on the shelf until… a few weeks ago!

It’s definitely the most I’ve ever spent on a body moisturizer, but boy, the Almond Milk Concentrate is really everything I remembered and even more! You know, sometimes, we tend to idealize things from the past, and in our head they become much better than they actually were…

Well, luckily it wasn’t the case with this uh-mazing cream!

First of all, look at that old school glass jar… The Almond Milk Concentrate is without a doubt the best-packaged lotion I’ve ever seen!

I don’t use perfume because it really bothers me on myself, so applying L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate is the perfect way for me to smell nice without it being overwhelming for my sensitive nose.

L’Occitane claims that after using the Almond Milk Concentrate for one month ‘body contours are better defined, skin looks firmer and satiny-smooth’. Now, to me the firming claim is just utter crap, as I don’t think any topical cream can have that effect, but it does leave the skin pretty soft and smooth. And to me, that’s enough! 😉

Have you ever tried the Almond Milk Concentrate from L’Occitane? Has any product ever stayed on your wishlist for TEN years? And do you tend to idealize stuff from the past?

    Haha, I’ve had the same experience as you with a sample that made me fall in love with the Milk years ago, except I haven’t found the courage to buy it yet! I don’t mind spending money on facial skincare but I have a harder time forking out so much for a body product. It smells so good though… I always tell myself I’ll get it during a sale, and then I’m always broke when the sales come.

      I LOVE the scent. Sometimes I’ll open the jar just to give it a sniff, LOL!

    I’m usually not the biggest fan of L’Occitane, yet my mum used to have that and I remember loving it when I borrowed it from her!

    Wow, that’s one expensive moisturiser! It does seem quite lovely, though, but I lol’d at the claims about body sculpting capabilities… Like, cmon L’Occitane! 😛 <3

      How awesome would it be if just putting on moisturizer were enough to have firmer skin, or slim down, or get rid of cellulite?!? LOL

    I tend to idealize things from the past. Or maybe my taste just wasn’t as refined back then, which leads to disappointment when using stuff again.
    And wait, you don’t wear perfume … ever?

      Did you see The Neverending Story as a child? I used to LOVE it and saw it a million times, so I decided to rewatch it as an adult to remember the good ol’ days… Well, I found it awful, LOL!
      I very rarely wear perfume… Sometimes I’ll try to use some again to see if I can stand it, but I usually can’t. And NEVER in the morning. It really makes me sick in the morning. I haven’t always been like that, though.

    Body sculpting!!! Seriously!! Love the old school packaging and I can totally understand how it must have felt to get something one has so coveted!

    Ah I know how bad it was to be a broke college student, I kept wishing for things I can’t afford! I still haven’t found any cream that gives firmer skin without doing any exercise and I don’t think such thing exist ha ha 🙂

    This looks so luxurious, I tend to love products with that sort of whipped consistency because it usually means they really sink in well 🙂

    I bet it smells so sweet and luscious! I wish it would help with firming and getting rid of cellulite, even at my borderline-underweight-weight I still had a ton of it. And no, I haven’t waited for anything for 10 years…I liked my style as a 16 year old, but it would be way too cutesy for me now!

    Oh, that sounds amazing! I am forever looking for the perfect body moisturizer, my skin is a bit picky. But for the same budget reasons that you mentioned, I have never tried anything from L’occitane. Honestly, I keep eyeing things, but never buy. Boo. I wish good stuff wasn’t so expensive 🙁

    I read the title and thought damn it, am I going to be enabled again haha, but the product did sound familiar. Then I realised that my aunty spoke to me about this and how she practically lives by it. It sure does sound divine and luxurious ♥

    OMG, this has been in my wish list since forever but I can’t justify the price! It’s way too expensive for what it is but I know it would be a decadent treat to the skin.

    It sounds lovely and like it’s worth every cent. I’ve never tried anything from L’Occitane, but I’m always so drawn to their products. They always look and sound so nice!
