L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil – Review, Ingredients, Price in India!
L’Occitane Almond range has some of the most iconic products from the brand. I had tried the L’Occitane Almond Milk Concentrate a couple of years ago along with a few hand creams and soaps. I fell in love with all of the products. A few months ago, I got the L’Occitane Almond Shower oil which has been a life saviour for my dry skin. I loved using it in winter and also used it occasionally in summer. Here is the detailed review!

L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil comes in a clear plastic bottle with silver cap. The cap has flip-top that dispenses the shower oil. This L’Occitane Shower oil does exactly what you think it does – moisturizes the body while cleansing. I have mentioned this specifically because the Forest Essential Shower oils are meant to be used in a different way. This one, however, is a product that is used in the shower to clean the body.
This shower oil lathers mildly in comes in contact with water. The foam is very gentle to the skin and it smells like a warm nutty dessert to me, totally winter-appropriate. The smell does linger a bit and is not overpowering.
Here’s a weird thing, it does not feel like it has washed off completely even after rinsing. Once I towel-dry my skin, it feels moisturized. I am stuck somewhere between wanting to get a squeaky clean skin and a moisturized skin after a shower. I am confused but hopefully, you are not and will be able to make up your mind about whether you want a shower gel/oil to wash off completely or not.
It is not exactly affordable but keeps the skin hydrated for hours. Even if you have dry skin, you may not need a body moisturizer after you use this product. However, you might need some kind of moisturizer in winter especially if you have dry skin. People with normal and oily skin will probably enjoy using this in the winter months as compared to the rest of the year.

I would highly recommend the L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil to people looking for a moisturizing and cleansing shower gel, especially for the winters. People with dry skin will probably enjoy using this body cleanser all year round, however, people with other skin types might prefer it in winter. This is a luxury product but totally worth it, in my opinion. The price is comparable to Forest Essentials, the Indian brand that offers amazing skincare products. I am definitely going to repurchase this for the upcoming months.
