Let’s be honest, we use body butter as much for the scent as for it’s amazingly luxe texture, and the one we’re obsessed with right now is the Amande Body Balm from L’Occitane.
The Amande scent is an intriguing mixture of bitter and sweet. At once gourmande but not dessert-like. More like something exotic than something that’s run of the mill. It’s kind of an addictive scent. You smell it once and you can’t stop smelling it again and again.
Not only is this body balm enriched with pure almond oil, but it’s also got shea butter in it which adds to the moisturizing properties. There’s also some dimethicone in this, which adds to the soft powdery feel that you get when you’re done rubbing this into your skin. I love body products that have a bit of this in there because your skin feels soft and smooth to the touch after you’re done moisturizing. You’ll get smooth glossy skin that looks and feels amazing.
