I am so weak when it comes to hype with beauty products, and I find myself unable to resist trying products which have been raved about by so many. I have read so many rave reviews for the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil, so I decided I’d finally purchase it as my skin has been so dry lately so I thought it’d be the perfect solution for injecting some much needed moisture into my skin. The Almond Shower Oil is dispensed through the lid which can be a little messy.
I think a pump dispenser would be so much easier for use in the shower as the bottle can get quite slippery, and I’ve found that I sometimes dispense more than I need which isn’t ideal considering this 250ml bottle is £18.
L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil – £18 – Feelunique
The oil is quite thick, and I find that a little doesn’t go a long way like I’d expected it to – you do need to use a fair bit of oil for each shower so I’ve decided to not use it as an all over body wash like it’s intended, and instead I’m just using it on my arms and legs. My favourite way to use the Shower Oil is on my legs before I shave, as it does a great job at lubricating my razor; much better than any shaving foam, and I tend to get less shaving nicks too which is a massive bonus.
I really do like this Shower Oil.. it smells incredible, and the scent lingers on the skin for a couple of hours post-shower. I wish this oil went further than it does, and was perhaps a little thinner in terms of consistency as it doesn’t lather up very well, which is a little disappointing. Even though I’ve enjoyed the oil, I wouldn’t repurchase it as I feel it’s quite expensive for what it is, and I actually prefer the Sanctuary Shower Oil as it’s much better value and I would honestly say it’s just as moisturising as this L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil, except it’s only £7 for 250ml and it lathers a lot better too.
