L’Occitane for Me? Sure, why not!

L'Occitane Shower Gel

L-R: L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil & Fleur De Vanille Shower Gel

My super amaze-balls husband picked up some L’Occitane products for me for Valentine’s Day and just because.  As you can see, I damn near KILLED each bottle.  I’ve wanted these for the longest.  I placed them on my pinterest wishlist board, and he got them for me out of the blue. How thoughtful, right?

Both the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil ($24) and the Fleur De Vanille Shower gel leave my skin, exceptionally soft, and lightly scented.  You can definitely tell when I use either product because once I leave the bathroom door open, the scent escapes and lingers throughout the house, even to the next floor!

I honestly prefer the Almond Shower Oil over the regular shower gel.  I think the scent is better, and it lathers more.  I love when my shower gels lather well.

L’Occitane describes the Almond Shower Oil as follows:

The Almond Shower Oil transforms into a lavish, softening foam that gently cleanses, leaving a satiny softness all over the body. Rich in Almond oil and nourishing lipids, this shower oil can also be used for shaving, allowing the razor to glide smoothly over the skin.

The husband also picked up for me, the Limited Edition L’Occitane Shea Butter Date Bouquet Ultra Rich Body Cream ($22).  It’s thick, creamy, and lightweight.  It has a light, fresh scent, too! I love it.  I’ve only been using it for a little over two weeks, and I’m halfway done with the product.  I’m way too heavy-handed when it comes to applying body products.  That’s what’s going to kill my pockets! LOL But, who likes to go out with dry, ashy skin? NO ONE! Anyway, I like how my skin feels after using this.  It’s soft, and moisturized.  It lasts throughout the day, too!

This cream is described as:

Indulge with this exquisitely rich body cream, made with 25% shea butter to envelop dry skin in supreme comfort and softness. Like a mouth-watering treat, its fragrance of exotic dates delights with a surprising oriental twist.

The striking design of this Limited Edition collection recalls the baskets made by women of Burkina Faso, West Africa, where L’OCCITANE Shea Butter is sourced. The colors and patterns of each product are inspired by these hand-made baskets and the blazing African sun.


So far, I’m in-love with L’Occitane products. I also have their handcream. Too bad, I used it all before I was able to post about it :(

What are your favorite L’Occitane Products?
