L’occitane Almond Shower Gel & Almond Milk Concentrate

A little about the brand…

L’occitane, a brand famed for taking its inspiration from plants and nature, creates wonderfully fragrant, luxury products that are both a joy and pleasure to use and beneficial to the skin. They ensure sustainable sourcing of ingredients and work with local farmers within the Provence area of France.

As a brand, L’occitane support biodiversity, conservations and sustainability of ingredients. They believe in supporting producers and provide both financial and technical support and hold a proactive and mindful attitude of the environment with recycling of empties available in-store and eco refills available of products (look out for my upcoming post on this!). L’occitane supports gender equality and empowering women. They also provide further accessibility on their products with braille and sell fundraising products to help fight preventable blindness.

L’occitane Almond Shower Oil

The Almond Shower Oil is a multi-award winner and it’s easy to see why. It is simply divine! Slightly thicker than traditional shower gel, this is a luxurious gel-oil, that once smoothed over the skin, transforms into a lightweight, milky texture that rinses away, with no oil or residue to be seen. Left behind is beautifully hydrated skin. Skin that’s had a treat. What’s more is you really don’t need to use a lot, a little goes a long way with this shower oil.

Skin really is treated with respect, lovingly comforted with the almond oil as the natural, sweet aroma of almond and vanilla fills the air.

It’s impressive just how nourished your skin is left just from a brief shower with this L’occitane Almond Shower Gel. I think this is where it truly shines, not only is it lux in feel and beautiful in fragrance but you feel a benefit to you skin. After a first use, skin feels a gentle hug of moisture, within two or three uses there is an apparent increase in skin softness and hydration.

Of course, if you’re more of a bath fan, you can fill a tub and enjoy a soft soak with the Almond Shower oil as well.

L’occitane’s Almond Shower Gel is housed in a clear, recycled bottle with the L’occitane logo and ‘Amanda’ embossed on it.

‘Shower Oil with Almond Oil’ fills the front label in both French and English.

It is simple, elegant and looks dreamy in ones bathroom.

I guess the only thing that L’occitane could do to make this shower oil even better (IMHO) is to offer it in an eco-refill? Well, of course, they do!

The Almond Shower Oil Refill is a whopping 500ml so you really are getting your monies worth.

L’occitane Almond Milk Concentrate

If you’re looking for a moisturiser to compliment your shower gel, look no further than the Almond Milk Concentrate.

This is a body moisturiser that gives a truly sensorial experience with delightful, natural almond oil and lemon, you feel instantly relaxed when applying. The scent is subtle on the skin but it’s there, it’s grown-up, it’s sophisticated.

The cream itself is a little big magic if you ask me. Truly a lightweight form, almost gel like, one that absorbs instantly as you smooth it onto the skin. There’s no waiting around for it to dry before getting dressed, no sticky skin to be found; just silky and smooth.

Yet, it hydrates brilliantly. This is what is so incredible. It is wonderfully lightweight and still provides the hydration and nourishment I desire.

With new complex, associating walnut seed and almond extract, the lotion helps to protect skin elasticity while stimulating cellular renewal, making skin seem smoothed and tightened.


L’occitane Almond Milk Concentrate comes in an outer card box, with all the product details.

The Milk Concentrate itself is in a beautiful, vintage-style glass jar with a metal lid. The packaging is fully recyclable and as mentioned above this can be done in any L’occitane store.

L’occitane Almond Shower Oil And Milk Concentrate

If you haven’t gathered by now, I’m quite taken with both of these. I’ve long been a fan of the Verbena Shower Gel, which is equally stunning to use, so it was a delight to try another from the range and I was not disappointed. My parched winter skin has been thoroughly thankful for the caring, nourishing, benefits of both the shower oil and the milk concentrate.

Both products are an utter treat to use and truly make the cleansing ritual a spa-like experience. Oh and they look stunning in the bathroom, don’t you think?
