May Beauty Favourites

almond milk concentrate review

I look as though I’m drinking body lotion from the pot in the above photograph: I can promise you I’m not. Just sniffing. It’s hard not to sniff the Almond Milk Concentrate from l’Occitane. It’s one of my all-time favourite beauty products ever, ever, ever. I must be on…what? Pot number six? Seven? There’s quite an extensive almond range at l’Occitane now, but the thick, unctuous, easily-absorbed Milk Concentrate is definitely my pick of the bunch.

So, May beauty favourites. A mixed bag, this video. I wanted to do something on pigmentation and on my current skincare routine, but then my Mum text me and said that she was on the M25 and did I want chicken breasts from Tesco, then she text again to ask whether she should bring ham. I got a bit distracted. Items in this mixed bag “Monthly Favourites” video include an old bodycare staple (the l’Occitane Milk Concentrate), a new skincare discovery (the Miracle Worker) and a couple of recent product launches that I thought you might like – the latest Roger & Gallet fragrance will be a winner with all the Fig Fans out there! There’s also a short ramble about my armpits, a monologue on the degree to which I perspire on a day-to-day basis and a short summary of my current most-used foundations. Enjoy!
