L’occitane Almond Collection

I have always been a fan of almonds, whether is it almond cookies or almond milk. They not only taste good but smell so good too which makes it the perfect smell for my shower foams and moisturisers. Are you a fan of almonds like me? If you are, you would want to stay tune to this post because I will be introducing the lovely almond collection from L’occitane. Almond is well-known for its ability to nourish the skin and L’occitane has integrated almonds in body care and toiletries that are both deliciously tempting and wonderfully effective. Made with Almonds sourced from Haute Provence, the Almond range, including our delicious shower oil and mouth-watering body cream, supports the sustainability of almond trees in the region, as these trees are a staple to the beauty of the Provencal landscape.

This is my first time coming close to the brand L’occitane. The spelling of the brand may seem complicated to others when pronouncing the brand for the first time but I was once given a lesson from my friend on brands and remembered the pronunciation of this brand ever since. I love the name and as exquisite as the name sounds, the products are even more exquisite.

Was given an opportunity to have first hand experience with the products when attending their launch at Webarre studio the other time and brought home 3 of their popular products from the almond range – Almond Shower Oil (200ml), Milk Concentrate (200ml) and Velvet Hands SPF 15.

L’OCCITANE ALMOND SHOWER OIL (200ml, $39)  – comes in 200ml and 500ml ($39/$62)

Oil-liked texture that transforms into a lavish, softening foam when mixed with water. Unique in texture and leaves a  satin-like softness all over the body. Cleanses gently to impart a delectable perfume. I like this a lot! I have used bathing oils for a long time but never before have I came into contact with something so fragrant and leaves a strong almond fragrance.

Texture: Oil-liked texture that turns into foam after lathering with water.

Ingredients are unavailable.
