L’Occitane – Cleansing and Softening Shower Oil

Online Description:

What it is:
A decadent body cleanser that is rich in almond oil and features a foaming oil-to-milk texture that leaves skin satiny-smooth.

What it is formulated to do:
Start moisturizing in the shower with this indulgent cleanser. The shower oil contains almond oil, naturally rich in omega 6 fatty acids to help soften the skin. The unique formula transforms into a milky foam upon contact with water, leaving a mouthwatering scent of fresh almonds for a true moment of delight. This oil also makes a great base for shaving.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens
– Phthalates

What else you need to know:
Almonds are an incredibly delicate fruit to grow: the best almonds require cool air without ever freezing. L’Occitane almonds are sourced from a very special region in Haute Provence, where some of the most delicious and nutritious almonds grow. L’Occitane supports the sustainability of almond trees in the region, as these trees, while difficult to grow, are a staple to the beauty of the Provencal landscape.


My Thoughts:

Holy Grail alert! My skin is pretty dry and this is by far the best product I’ve used that not only washes but also moisturizes at the same time. I can see an immediate difference in the integrity of my skin when I step out of the shower and this works best when teamed up with the body oil from the same line. My skin feels soft, it smells amazing, and I notice the difference from consistent use of this product. Unfortunately, the lather isn’t great. It lathers up nicely when I first soap it up on my loofah but quickly depletes and I have to use more. As for a shaving base, I like using this product way more than shaving cream. This product moisturizes while it sits on your skin and my skin gets irritated when shaving because I have sensitive, dry skin, but I don’t have that reaction when using this product. One thing I liked in this product vs every other moisturizing cleanser or cleansing oil on the market is that it hydrates on a flawless level; my skin doesn’t feel greasy nor does it over-dry my skin once I rinse.
