L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil

One of my favourite bloggers Anna Newton of The Anna Edit has recommended the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil time & again. It sounded like an absolute delight everytime she mentioned it & I finally gave in to temptation a few months back as a treat (I don't remember what the occasion was...most likey there wasn't any :D and I got it as retail therapy!

The first time I sniffed it my brain could only say - Oh Boy! Where have I been all these years! 
FYI - I am not a huge fan of almond smelling products at all. But this is an absolute joy in a bottle!

This is a luxury shower time treat for me (considering the price!). I do not use it everyday, but on my days off or when I am in the mood for a nice long shower and a bit of a pampering session, I pull this baby out.

The highlight of course for me is the fragrance - an ever so light nutty smell. Not sweet, not floral, not fruity, not woody - it is extremely well balanced and has a luxurious elegant smell. You need to sniff it once to know. I really cannot explain it. 

The fact that it is SLS free is an added advantage. 
It lathers well & leaves the skin feeling clean and supple. There is no dry stretchy feeling. Just well nourished skin. I can usually skip putting lotion post the shower oil (unless it is peak winter and extremely dry weather).
If you have normal-oily skin, you really wouldn't feel the need for putting a lotion.

The L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil is truly indulgent, luxuriously scented & hydrating and has definitely become a shower must have for me. I won't use it everyday yes, but it will always be in bathroom cupboard!
