A Surprisingly Delightful Review of L'Occitane Amande Shaping Delight

L'Occitane Almond Shaping Delight Delightful Contours Review
Although I am a big fan of L'Occitane bath and body products, I have somehow managed to miss out on their Amande range.  That's a situation that is now rectified and will remain that way - as this is a gorgeous line!

Today's review is of the Amande Firming and Resculpting Shaping Delight (newly renamed by L'Occitane to Almond Delightful Contours), which claims to visibly reshape your silhouette and tone body contours and to reduce the appearance of cellulite, leaving the skin firmer and smoother.  

I must declare upfront that I was extremely sceptical about a product targeting cellulite but I did a proper test, applying this morning and night to my right thigh for 4 weeks, whilst leaving my left thigh, which became the "control" thigh to compare to.  

L'Occitane Almond Delightful Contours gel-cream texture
The formulation is a gel-cream consistence with a fresh, pleasant scent (don't worry, you do not end up smelling like a marzipan fruit after applying).  It was quick to work into the skin and didn't leave it sticky or tacky afterwards.  The jar looks lovely but I would have preferred if it had come with a spatula, as I don't think it's very hygenic to have to scoop out the amount you need with your hands.

My skin was immediately softer after application.  More surprisingly (as I really didn't think these sorts of products worked) there was a marked and noticeable difference to my dimples and bumps in my right side from my left after 4 weeks.  Although I was not completely cellite free, you could definitely see a difference to both skin texture and cellulite in the one side it was applied too.

So this was a refreshing change for me.  I usually start using a product fully believing (and wanting) it to deliver on the promises made for it, but am too often disappointed.  With this gel-cream, I started full of sceptism and became converted with the results achieved.  So I would have to rate this 4.5/5.
