L’Occitane Almond Range… Heaven S(c)ent…

A couple weeks ago I found myself with a few hours to kill up in the picturesque mountains village of Leura. It is such a gorgeous little village filled with coffee shops, restaurants and little boutiques and while I couldn’t access all of them #pramproblems I still managed to wrangle the pram into a few and pick up a few little goodies.



I don’t know what kind of sorcery L’Occitane have access to in their factories but my oh my how has no-one ever told me about the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil and Almond Milk Concentrate Body Cream? Actually that’s a complete lie. I’ve seen so many raves about these two products as well as the entire L’Occitane range so I am at a loss to understand how it has taken me this long to try the brand.

L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil and Milk Concentrate Body Cream

The L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil is just the most sumptuous and decadent shower wash I have tried in a long time, or like ever. I don’t know that I have ever actually had a shower oil rather just had body washes. Wow, I take a small amount on a puff and massage all over and leave the shower recess smelling incredible. Skin is soft, hydrated and I feel like I could skip a body moisturiser all together.

But I don’t. Because even more luxe is the L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate body cream. Before I rave about about this I have to admit that as stunning as the glass jar looks on top of my bathroom cabinet it really is a going to become a pain in the butt to have to dip my hand in to scoop out the cream. I’d have much preferred a different style of packaging but I can forgive it because it’s just so damn awesome. Rich and thick in texture this body cream is the ultimate in indulgence. It penetrates the skin quickly leaving not a trace of greasiness or stickiness. Probably not a cream I am going to reach for in the middle of an Aussie summer but for now and the cooler months I can feel this will be my go-to.

Both the shower oil and the body cream, either alone or together, leave the skin delicately scented. A scent that lasts and lasts. I can still smell it on myself the next morning! I am crap at describing scents, but it is a really ‘adult’ kind of scent. Not sweet or floral or too feminine. Very clean and luxe.

I flit between the drugstore or more affordable/mid range shower and body products and now and then like to indulge in something a little more special. L’Occitane is definitely on the ‘something special’ side. Have you tried anything from the range? What’s your favourite body product brand?
