This cream is amazing! I have psoriasis and lately nothing seemed to help my skin. After two weeks of using this cream and the Almond Oil, my skin has improved tremendously. I have even used it on my face, in addition to the high end moisturizer that I normally use. It has eliminated the dryness around my lips, eyes and on top of my cheeks which even a prescribed cream did not help.
An almost 'edible' sweet-smelling body moisturizer that hydrates but is slightly on the greasy side. The cream itself is not thick, it's very emulsion-like and it absorbs quickly. However it leaves a slightly oily film on my skin. In terms of hydration it's very middle of the road, neither on the rich end of the spectrum nor the light, just an average moisturizer yet with a greasy after feel. Some of the things I'm not so keen on are: the ingredients - far too many unpronounceable things in here and not enough of the good stuff (20/80 ratio of good vs questionable). It's also perfumed, and not just lightly but quite heavily, and probably the reason why some people mention breaking out from using this. And lastly the exaggerated claims...this one apparently 'visibly firms skin', though how it manages to do that when there isn't a single skin firming ingredient in here, is beyond me! Ingredients and claims aside I do love the almond-perfumey fragrance in here, it's unique! Would be perfect if the Almond note could be taken up a notch and the underlying floral perfume note turned down slightly. If I found this in a significant sale I'd likely repurchase, though at full price though it's just not justifiable to me spending that much on something that's just a basic moisturizer. Feels very overpriced for what it is/does. -> My 'Ulta Beauty Top 7 must-have list' (My 7 favorite beauty products of all time, focusing mainly on my purchases at Ulta) < - < 1.

It feels rich and decadent on your skin. I love it! I think it will make a great gift for those that are hard to buy for. It's so great I want to share it. Wish the scent was a bit more almond scented.

I love how this product goes onto the my skin. It's smooth and creamy and smells great. However, an hour or two later, I find it pilling on my legs. I rub up and down and it comes off in bits. I don't know what is happening but that seems really abnormal. I have to give it two stars because I won't be buying it again. :(

This is just perfect. The smell, the consistency and it moisturizes very well. Wouldn't change a thing.

It works good if you have normal skin, but for me, it dries up after I use it. Dry skin for me is not the best choice for me. I need thick cream. Combine, dry, very dry, and sensitive & reactive…
SaraC from San Diego
Creamy, smooth but not sticky; it's the perfect consistency! I also rub it over my feet at night b/c it's thinner than the sb h-cream but creamier & smells better than the sb peppermint f-cream.

I am obsessed with the smell and how light this cream is. I will definitely purchase it again!!!

i've always heard good things about this brand and finally decided to try it and was not disappointed. super amazing lightweight texture, soaks into skin leaving a nice smell. it's moisturizing and leaves my skin soft. it's really spreadable too, a little goes a long way.

Excellent product , great quality and size bottle
Lauren from Melbourne FL
This product is the absolute best lotion in the world. There is nothing else like it. Use it once and you're instantly soft, use it often and you're a goddess. End of review.
Shelly from Lakeland, FL
This body cream is rich, emollient and smells amazing. It makes my skin so soft and leaves it softly scented. I recommend buying the large jar then buy the refill going forward.
Leah from Florida
Use it after a shower, and it is amazing. The price point is actually decent considering how long one jar will last. I use it nearly every night and a little goes a long way. Love the smell!
Teresa from Hobbs, NM
I tried this cream for the first time when I bought a set at an airport last summer. It contained a trial-size cute jar and I made it last for as long as I could. Finally, I got the regular-size jar and it is as wonderful as I remember it. Delicious fragrance and absorbed immediately . My skin feels so soft and supple now. Definitely worth every penny! And the regular size is quite large too.
Katherine from Northern Kentucky
This product is not good for dry skin. This product is good for children and teenage skin. If you are post menopausal and have dry skin, or if you have hypothyroidism and have very dry skin this product does nothing as it feels too watered down. If this lotion could be thickened up to 2 or 3x as moisturizing as it is now it might be a good product. I did not return this product because I hate to do that but it does not work.
Suzanne from Davie, Florida
I use this as a face cream. I wear it under my primer and makeup so that the makeup doesn't settle into my wrinkles. This makes my face look wrinkle free and flaw less. At night I reapply on a clean face for a night time moisturizer. This leaves my skin silky soft, radiant and hydrated. I love this product!
Sandra from Naperville, Illinois
The Best moisturizer for the entire body!
Dora from Portland
This stuff is so good, my skin is very sensitive and incredibly finicky with literally anything. But this lotion is by far, my holy grail. It'll be a constant repurchase, and the smell is so delicate it makes me feel like I'm living in a French villa. I love it. I recommend it. I'd buy 3 at a time if I had the room!
Frances from California
Exceptional moisturizer and a divine aromatherapy experience!
Rhii from Chester, SC
I save money by buying the refills and yet it still feels a bit pricey - however, it's worth every penny. It's light and clean scent is amazing and the texture is perfect. It's not too thick and not too thin, absorbs quickly and leaves you feeling fresh. *I some how lost my original jar so I just use a mason jar and I'm perfectly happy with saving a few dollars by using a mason jar.
Paula from Wisconsin
This is/was great to refill my jar. This is my favorite for summer. Having the refill gives me the satisfaction of feeling like I am making a wee bit of difference in the environment while using the lotion.
Amanda from Wisconsin
I love how great this cream is and have been using it for about as long as the company has been international and supplying it.
It is great that they are cleaning up their product lines slowly by removing things like polysorbates and BHA/BHT. Thank you for owning up to your rep for being "nature-centric" and providing traditional, rich Mediterranean remedies for skin and health care.
Carolyn from Orlando, FL
Having the possibility to obtain this awesome product in a refill is great. As a retiree, this allows me to continue to enjoy the product longer!! Great!

Love L'occitane. Nice to be able to use my points on the refill. The Almond milk is fantastic...smells amazing with great hydration for my 67 y.o. skin! Especially my forearms and legs, which are exposed when working in my garden.
