Comfort. Hot shower. The scent of almonds. A silky oil. Sometimes, the simple pleasures are the best. This shower oil has to be the best skincare item that I have ever bought. Ever! When I first picked this up, a few people were shocked at the price of this product. I have to admit that this was a splurge product, but for me, it has been absolutely worth every single penny. It also made me realize that sometimes products are worth investing in! So here are the reasons why this lovely shower oil is in my good books.
What is it?
Cleansing oils are incredibly popular for the face but I haven’t seen too many cleansing oils for body skincare and I’m so glad I found this shower oil. I always purchased the L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate body lotion, so I figured I would give it a go to the scent of the shower oil.
The L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil is ah-may-zing. The first thing I noticed when I started using it is that it has that same wonderful almond fragrance as the Almond Milk Concentrate body lotion and speaking about the fragrance, it justifies the price tag.
What does it smells like?
The L’Occitane Shower Oil comes in only one scent – Almond. I’m not the biggest fan of almonds whether in the form of scent or the nut, but I must say that it isn’t too bad. It is quite a strong scent and leaves the bathroom perfumed for a while after. There is no way that someone can secretly use your Almond Shower Oil because the minute you step into the bathroom, you will know. The smell lingers… and it’s quite nice.
I hesitate to call it a foam because it does not foam nor lather up as a regular shower gel does. It just turns into a thick milky liquid that has a lovely slip and washes off easily, leaving skin feeling moist and soothed.
Fun fact –
I find a little strange, that when the oil comes into contact with water, it turns a little warm. Not scary hot, but just a little warm, like warming up the massage oil. I attribute this to the reaction between the oil and water but it will be interesting to see if anyone else experiences this.
I would one hundred percent recommend this product to anybody. If you have dry and sensitive skin, this could be an absolute savior in your shower routine and definitely one to try.
