Mum's are great because they always remember those little hang-ups you have even though most of the time they don't mention it. My mum and sister went to Paris for the night a couple of weeks ago and bought me back some really lovely hand cream (the L'Occitane handcream is one of my absolute favourites) and some L'Occitane Almond Lighter Legs gel cream because I've always had incredibly dry, eczema-prone skin on my legs, especially my calves which has been hard to get rid of over the years.
I've been using the Almond Lighter Legs for just over two weeks and I love it. Not only is the almond smell absolutely divine - not too sickly as almond often can be - but my legs look so much better and still feel soft and moisturised well into the next day. The gel-cream contains peppermint which makes you legs feel fresh and soothed even when you've been pounding pavements all day and it absorbs into the legs really well, no greasiness at all. As for making my legs feel lighter I'm not sure about that as they didn't feel particularly heavy to begin with but I'm so impressed with its moisturising qualities I don't doubt it would do everything else it claims to.
I particularly love this because I wouldn't have bought it for myself but I will definitely re-buy and get it for friends as gifts.
