I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas for those that celebrate and for those that don't I hope you had a fabulous Tuesday. I have been obsessed with the L'Occitane Cleansing Shower Oil for a while and when I saw Essie-Button blog about this gift set I immediately emailed my mom and told her that this is what I wanted for Christmas.
The packaging is so bright and whimsical it makes it feel more special. This is a box I will be keeping.
This gift set comes with six products and is currently on sale for $68.00 (originally $74) at L'Occitane's website.
1. Cleansing and Softening Shower Oil with Almond Oil (8.4oz)-this is the bigger size that comes with a pump which I was super excited about. This shower oil foams up when you rub it into the skin making it perfect to shave with. It also doesn't make your skin tight when you get out of the shower.
2. Amande Milk Concentrate (3.5oz)-this is the lightest most moisturizing "lotion" you will ever try. I want to buy the full size so bad but at $44 it's hard to justify.
3. Almond Delicious Paste (1.7oz)-This is an exfoliator that leaves your skin feeling smooth and hydrated which I find rare in an exfoliator. I don't think I would recommend this on your face as the actual exfoliating bit are crushed almonds which would be too rough for the face. The full size is also expensive at $36.
4 and 5. Two Almond Delicious Soaps (1.7oz each)-I have to be honest, I haven't tried these soaps yet. I don't use bars of soaps ever so it's going to be difficult for me to actually use them. They smell nice and I'm sure they are lovely but even if I never use them, the gift set is still worth the money.
6. Almond Smooth Hands (1oz)- I love this hand cream. I believe L'Occitane is known for their hand creams and I can totally see why. I will buy a full size when I run out of this but I think I'm going to go for the unscented Shea Butter instead.
Overall, I completely recommend this set and I think it would make an amazing present for anyone you know who loves bath and body products and who also loves the smell of almonds (I'm guessing this wouldn't be so great for those with almond allergies). My mom even loved the shower oil so much she bought a bottle for herself so I'm pretty sure you will like it.
One final note: Can someone please let me know how you pronounce this brand because I have a feeling I'm butchering the name which would be a shame since they have such lovely products!
