L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil


I adore having silky smooth skin but i despise having to use product after product to get my skin to that stage, so when i discovered L'Occitane's shower oil it quickly became one of my favourite products.

It has a very runny consistency which doesn't feel particularly luxurious at first but the results from using it are amazing. When the oil meets water it begins to foam up which makes it ideal for shaving as the foam allows for a close shave and the product is really hydrating.

The product has a gorgeous almond scent which isn't overpowering but lasts on the skin for a solid few hours. You only need a tiny amount for each use so the product lasts a while.

I wouldn't recommend this if you already have oily skin, don't get me wrong it will still be a good product but it won't have any "miracle" affects on your skin. However, if on the other hand you do have dry/normal skin, buy it! It keeps your skin moisturised for hours, gets rid of all those pesky dry bits and smells delicious. Although it's a little on the pricy side the end result this product brings makes the purchase completely justifiable. For people with dry/normal skin i cannot recommend this enough.

    1. Oh that sucks! It would still smell awesome and make your skin soft but you'd definitely have to skip moisturising!

  14. I used a Nivea version of this. It's more a luxury item than something that really cleans your skin, I think. Plus I forgot to rinse out the tub once my flatmate nearly slipped when going insidie. Oops !

    1. I never knew there were high street shower oil alternatives! Wooops, well at least they would've gotten out of the bath moisturised hahaha!
