- "I don't know if ever would have tried this product if it were jot for my mom gifting me way more soap than I could use in a year. I took the four delicious but useless to me bars of soap back to a loccitane store and they exchanged without any trouble. I figured, since it was gift money, I would indulge. this milk veil lotion is well worth it's $40 price tag. I have extremely dry sensitive skin and often try things that don't end up working for me. I keep trying though! and I'm glad I did. this makes my skin SO SOFT. the added shimmer is fun fun fun and makes me feel pretty even if no one can see it. it smells divine but not so strong that you can't layer fragrance over it. I use it after my shower every night and the product doesn't run out as fast as i thought it might. two weeks and I haven't made but a little empty space in the bottle. um, I have a lot of ski to hydrate :p I will buy this again and I recommend it highly!

- "L'Occitane's Almond collection is one of my favorites. The milk veil is wonderful. It's light weight, yet very hydrating. It leaves my skin soft with a slight hint of shimmer." in 3 reviews
The bottle and pump are standard fare for pump-bottle lotions, though the pump features a handsome aluminum neck, which is a classy touch. The labeling is attractive and features information in multiple languages (even braille). The transparen't bottle takes the guesswork out of determining how much product remains.
MOISTURIZATION & TEXTURE
For those unfamiliar with the L'Occitane Almond line, this is the most lightweight moisturizer of the bunch. I would describe it best as a 'daily moisturizer' perfect for mild dry skin, or for maintaining suppleness and preventing dryness in normal skin. On freshly showered, towel dried skin, the Almond Milk Veil spreads soothly and covers evenly, with a pleasant texture that is silky, never sticky or greasy. Absorption is very rapid, which makes it ideal for use between showering and dressing (no waiting for your lotion to 'soak in').
For drier areas that need special attention (elbows, ankles, knees, etc) the L'Occitane Almond Concentrate (think body butter) makes a wonderful complement to this product, and features the same irresistible fragrance.
The fragrance is mouthwateringly delicious but not over the top or synthetic sweet. Almond is definitely in the foreground -- this is not a boozy amaretto type scent -- but rather a slightly sweet marzipan, with faint powdery and creamy elements in the background. A few minutes after application the fragrance stays very close to the skin, so it won't overpower people or clash with any other fragrances you decide to wear.
