L'Occitane Velvet Body Balm ~ #Review

It's time to Spring forward! This past weekend we turned our clocks forward so we can jump into Spring faster.  I am getting sick of Winter and I am so glad Spring is coming in a few weeks so I can not worry about shoveling snow, heavy coats, broken furnaces, and crazy dry skin.  I get dry skin all year round but Winter is always the worst.  When Spring comes around, of course I would need to change my moisturizers and this Spring you will love L'Occitane Velvet Body Balm.

L'Occitane Velvet Body Balm


L'Occitane is launching a new exclusive Almond Complex.  Drawing upon the regenerating power of the native cells of the almond tree, L'Occitane's Laboratories have developed an exclusive blend of active ingredients to help renew and revitalize epidermal cells while acting on skin slackening, lack of tonicity, fine lines and skin irregularities.

Youth Ritual for the body includes:

Velvet Body Serum 100 ml  $52
Velvet Body Balm    200ml  $62

Velvet Serum pairs the expertise of the youth complex with the performance of Vitamin C to help even out the skin and reveal its youthfulness.  Apply the serum before the Velvet Balm to boost its effectiveness.  The texture is rapidly absorbed and leaves the skin incredibly silky and velvety.

Velvet Balm feels wonderfully rich on the skin, providing an immediate sensation of comfort.  Concentrated in active ingredients, the youth complex targets five signs of aging: dryness, skin slackening, lack of tonicity, fine lines and skin irregularities.  Its melting texture offers a silky, comfortable finish with a delicately powdery scent.

My skin has fallen in love with the new L'Occitane Velvet Body Balm. The velvet balm comes in a huge thick glass jar.  The balm has a pretty rosey colour.  The texture is very light, fast absorbing, it has a pleasant light scent of a sweet nutty scent.  It leaves my skin hydrated and not greasy.  It is not thick enough for the winter but it will be perfect for this spring.  I love rubbing this on my arms and legs.  I can't wait for Spring!


 Available for Spring 2015 at all L'Occitane boutiques across Canada.
