There comes a time during the year; when none of the skin moisturisers seem to work well. My skin type is combination to dry; and my worst months of the year are from July to October. I do not know whether it will be hot or warm or humid; or whether there will be rainfall and everything becomes cool again. The past 3 months, I have been using this product which I am completely in love with. It has totally helped me ; and I have its concentrate version too; which I have used for review sake; but will start applying it properly maybe by the end of this month.
About the product:
A 2-in-1 body milk which moisturizes and firms the skin, with a ultra-light and fresh texture.With an ultra-light and express texture, this body milk combines almond oil, milk and proteins with silicium to nourish, soften and firm the skin.
How to use:
Massage in the morning and/or evening over the entire body using circular movements, always from bottom to top.
Rs. 2690/- for 250ml product
My Experience with L’Occitane Almond Milk Veil:
I just love L’Occitane products. Their products are mild, pleasant smell, against animal testing, made of only plant derivates;and another thing which has totally filled me with awe. Their descriptions on the container are written in languages; as well as in Braille. I mean, who thinks about such small things. L’occitane has taken everything into account…and I am totally touched by their thoughtfulness.
The product comes in a plastic bottle; containing 250ml of white color product. It has a twist cap on the top; which moves to “open” and “stop” positions. I am glad that they have given this a pump system, so it remains hygienic and dispenses just the required amount of product. But…yes, there is a but……This bottle cannot be taken on travels; as I have myself experienced the disaster. The cap was in stop position; and I had packed the bottle inside another box; but the box was totally messy when I reached my destination.
The product is white in color, and runny in consistency. The fragrance is like that of almonds; it is totally delicious and heavenly. However, if you do not like the fragrance, don’t worry; the fragrance disappears within half an hours’ time. One pump of the product is enough for one arm. I like the fact that it spreads very easily on the body; and it absorbs extremely quickly. It does not leave any greasy feel at all. It does not stain my clothes. In fact, it is extremely light weight.
On blending, it gets absorbed very quickly, leaving behind some micro sparkle particles on the skin. These sparkle particles are responsible for a beautiful glow it imparts on the skin. The sparkle particles are not at all gritty, and fade away within an hour or two. The lotion leaves the skin so smooth, supple and hydrated. I have used in in the worst of cold and warm, humid months; and it has worked very well in both the conditions.You may apply it during day or night time; and the effect is the same.The skin hydration stays for atleast 12 hours in extreme cold; before you need to reapply it.
I have also got the L’occitane Almond milk concentrate for myself, which I have used; loved it; and have kept it for the extreme colder months yet to come. I will review it on IMBB, within a few days; and I plan to replace it for my body butter this winter. All in all, I am in love with this product.

Will I recommend L’Occitane Almond Milk Veil?
Yes, I will….you have to buy this; or something else from L’Occitane’s almond range of skin products. I will be reviewing the L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate; so you may make up your mind as to what you would like to buy. For me; with combination to dry skin; this product is sufficient for all year around; and the Almond milk concentrate for the winters. This one is an excellent product; and a must-have for all beauties in the world.
