I thought today in honour of the super healthy Almond I would share this post again with you.
I love Almonds not only to eat, but also to apply to my face and body.
Almond is well-know for its ability to nourish the skin and in my opinion L'OCCITANE have best harnessed the exceptional beautifying power of almond from the south of France and integrated it in body treatments and toiletries that are both deliciously tempting and wonderfully effective.
Made with Almonds sourced from Haute Provence, the Almond range, includes delicious shower oil, mouth watering body creams, soaps and hand creams
The review below was written in 2012 and in my opinion nothing has changed and it still remains on my "must have" list, so if you havent yet tried this or any other Almond products from L'Occitane then you really are missing out.
The Almond Shower Oil is L'Occitane's second "Best Selling" product worldwide after their wonderful Shea Hand Cream ,which by the way won a Fair Lady award for 2011!
The Almond Shower Oil is unique and has to be experienced in order to appreciate and understand fully the pleasure and the benefits derived from using this cleansing and soothing oil.
Don't be put off by the fact it's an oil, as I know, it conjures up visions of an oily residue being left on the skin after your daily shower...
Well it doesn't!
Even the application of the product is special in so many ways.
Firstly the aroma of Almonds is great, then once you massage the oil onto a wet skin the oil magically turns into a white creamy texture!
You then cleanse the body and rinse under the shower as normal and your skin is left beautifully cleansed, (whilst respecting the Hydrolipidic film), moisturised and softened, (thanks to all the magical powers of the Almond oils) and yet leaves
no oily residue behind on the skin.
Can it get any better?
Well yes it can & it does, as they also recommend that you shave your legs in the shower using the Shower Oil..
How easy is that...its a great multi- tasking product.
Oh! I nearly forgot the product is unisex, so you can share it with your man.
This is an easy choice as "My Must Haves" and judging by the worldwide sales, I am not the only one that has to "Have" the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil.....
This product comes in a plastic containers, which are safer in the shower and it comes in
a variety of sizes!
