The Return of My Favourite Hand Cream Ever!
While L'Occitane has done this amazing thing to work with The Royal Ballet to create this beautiful collection, with the beautiful muted green, and gorgeous canvas drawstring pouch.. all that's running through my head is, OH MY GOD THE ALMOND HAND CREAM IS BACK. (Refer to this post for the last time L'Occitane released this hand cream).
Let's rewind. This set was created with a ballet dancer perfection in mind, and all of the products were used by Royal Ballet dancers (yes, it pleases me I have the same hand cream taste as a delicate ballet dancer..). It contains the Almond Tonic Body Oil, Almond Lighter Legs and of course, the Almond Smooth Hands. The line is created to soften, tone and firm your skin, which is great for the upcoming warm weather!
The thing that I love about the Almond Smooth Hand, is that it's both super light like a gel, but softening and moisturising. The best thing though, is how it absorbs so quickly. I also think the condition of your hands improve over time, and the only other hand cream that I've really seen do that is the Apivita Intensive Moisturising Hand Cream (review here).
If you love the Almond Milk Concentrate, I think the Almond Lighter Legs will come as a welcome surprise. It has a very similar gel-like texture that softens the surface of your legs but absorbs super quickly. Perfect for the summer. I also love how the spout of the tube is absolutely massive! And the Almond Tonic Oil is extremely similar in finish, but I'm not sure it spreads as well as the Lighter Legs. The spray is also of a great quality and sprays an even layer of product.
The three products are encased in a gorgeously sturdy canvas pouch with the same muted green ribbon as drawstrings. One side of the bag has the Royal Ballet logo, while the other has a watercolour image of a ballerina. Very delicate and something I intend on using as a washbag, or maybe even storage!
You can find this nationwide in boutiques or online (link here), and it retails for £49. The products are also available individually (link here), but this Royal Ballet set saves you over £20 compared to if you bought the products individually. You can also get the Smooth Hands in the travel-friendly size!
