The other week I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful package from the lovely team at L’Occitane with a few of their almond scented skincare products nestled inside. Some of you guys will know that I LOVE trying out different bath and shower products and the L’Occitane almond range is a collection that I’ve been using on my skin for quite some time. I thought I’d put together a little post to tell you guys a bit more about some of the products that I reach for during bath time.

First up I just have to take a minute to talk about the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil. What I love about this oil is that it feels sooooo luxurious to use. When the product comes into contact with wet skin it immediately transforms into a super soft foam and you start to smell that deliciously rich, almond fragrance. I’m a sucker for products which have a nutty scent so for me, this shower oil is my idea of heaven. Oils are a really great product to use if you suffer with dryness because they’re great at nourishing your skin and locking in that moisture. I try to use an oil at least once a week or whenever I have an extra few minutes to spend in the shower. Another thing that makes me love this stuff even more is that a little really does go a long way, all you need is a small amount in the palm of your hand because you can work it into that lovely lather. I often use this as a shaving oil!

If you’re as much of a fan of the Almond Shower Oil as I am then you can bet you’re gonna end up falling in love with the L’Occitane Almond Delicious Paste too! As some of you might know, I suffer with dryness and sensitivity, so exfoliators are a product that really help to improve the look and feel of my skin. This paste does a fab job at eliminating any dead cells and improving the overall texture of my skin, but the natural ingredients also mean that it’s wonderfully gentle on my skin too. The paste is a concoction of almond butter and almond oil and it’s also infused with sugar crystals and almond shells. I like to save this exfoliator for my at home ‘spa nights’ and usually spend about 5 minutes gently rubbing the product in circular motions all over my body. I love the scent, so I like to leave the product to soak in for a few minutes before rinsing it away. Sounds over the top, but this stuff makes me feel like a whole new woman…!

Onto moisturisers now and I want to take a second to tell you guys about the L’Occitane Almond Refining Concentrate because I swear this product might be magic. The Refining Concentrate has been designed to improve the appearance of cellulite and smooth the skin as well as working towards firming and toning the body. Sounds amazing, right? If you’re in the market for a nourishing hand cream then definitely give the L’Occitane Almond Delicious Hand Cream a whirl. I’m quite fussy when it comes to hand creams but I’ve ended up falling in love with this formula; it’s non greasy, super duper nourishing and as with all the products from the L’Occitane almond range, it smells absolutely delicious!

If you’re as obsessed with nutty scents as I am then I just know you’re gonna love everything from the L’Occitane almond range. Every single L’Occitane product that I’ve used feels super luxurious so they’re great if you’re looking to treat yourself to something special. Let me know if you’ve tried any of these products out!






  • I’ve tried the hand cream before and loved it! Even if I got my hands wet and the lotion came off, my hands would still feel hydrated. I used to work with aquarium fish, my hand in and out of water, so I’m quite picky with hand creams. Only this, Aveeno, and the Eos hand lotion pass my testing. 🙂 I’m excited to try the shower oil, I have dry, sensitive skin too. 🙁

  • Amande has been my favourite L’Occitane product line for years! Love the shower oil, there is nothing like it out there! They really need to make a body mist or an EDP with this scent too!
