L'Occitane know how to do body care right. This is the most luxurious, beautiful body cream and I wouldn't hesitate to give it 5 stars if it weren't for how quickly I run through this for the price. The almond scent is divine and the texture is to die for. If you want to feel super glamorous and treat yourself, definitely pick up a pot!
After reading all the rave reviews and being recommended it by several people in person, too, I bit the bullet and bought a 250ml bottle of this shower oil. I absolutely love the body scrub and firming concentrate, so hoped this would be the same. Unfortunately, not so. I really struggle to get this to lather, and while I loved the scent of it in the bottle, when it hits water and begins to turn milky, I get an almost wet dog smell from it. It does feel hydrating on the skin, but it just feels far too difficult and faffy to use for the price.
This scrub is amazing if you have sensitive skin that just needs some light exfoliation. It leaves a beautiful hydrating layer on the skin after it's washed off so you don't need to use moisturiser once you hop out of the shower or bath. If you try to apply it to wet skin, it will just slide around, so the best way to use it is to wash your body, towel dry lightly and then apply while the skin is still damp. While it's pricey, I find a tub can last me 6-8 months with generous once or twice a week usage.
