L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil is a product which makes me go all throwback thursday and reminds me of the early days where I started reading blogs, hoping to save up my £10 per week pocket money to invest in luxury beauty products like the By Terry Baume de Rose and the Caudalie Beauty Elixir. Fact is I always ended up spending it on the cinema or a Maybelline mascara and it’s only now, four or five years on that I’ve got my hands on a few of the cult classics from when my passion began. L’Occitane is a store which I always go into, ooh and aah over it’s beauty and leave empty handed. But on a recent trip with my boyfriend and his dad, I was treated to my long lusted product; the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil.
Now, to put it bluntly, YOU NEED THIS. I wish I hadn’t waited, you might think I’ve taken a funny turn feeling so strongly about something which basically goes down the plug hole, but this oil makes shaving a much more bearable experience and leaves your skin feeling super soft and smooth meaning you could skip that awkward standing naked waiting for moisturiser to dry moment and slip straight into your clothes. What makes this stand out from other shower oils for me, is that it thickens slightly when it touches the skin and really gets to work on nourishing the skin, meaning you see and feel results even if you rinse off imminently.
The smell of the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil is stunning and does smell like actual almonds rather than an overly sweet manufactured scent. Rumour has it you can pop a bit of this in the bath for a spa like silky skin experience…I’ll be doing this in the next couple of seconds.
Will you be treating yourself to this come payday? What products do you remember from the early beauty blog days?
