Rated 2 out of 5 by Moistureseeker Not sure why this rated so highly
I really don't understand the hype with this product. A kind friend bought me the sweet almond oil, and I rushed to the shower in anticipation of ultra moisturised skin. Sadly I found it a less than pleasurable experience. It smells nice, but it felt like I was spreading used chip fat on my skin, or at least how I imagine that would feel. Unpleasant, but I could have lived with that if the mythical moisturisation occured. Sadly it didn't. In fact it dried my skin, which I can only assume is related to the chemicals contained within. I usually use paraben and SLS free shower gels, and I will be promptly returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bettylishious totally addictive
I bought this recently and was instantly hooked. leaves my skin lovely and soft but not oily and i have very sensitive skin so that works great. also not slippery next time i got in the shower, which is something i worry about.
i had a friend stay over this weekend and i used this in the shower on saturday morning. i told her about it and said give it a go. she's very fussy about bath stuff as shes allergic to some soaps. she absolutely loved it, which is great as she is getting the other half of my duo as a xmas pressie! sneaky arent i!! also i noticed this morning, 2 days later, my bathroom still smells divinely of that creamy almond/vanilla fragrance....delish!

I already love L'Occitane, and this is just another firm favourite of mine. The first time I used the almond shower oil was earlier in the year when L'Occitane did a TSV that they also had on auto delivery throughout the year, with a different collection every time.
Anyway, this shower oil is wonderful. It smells great and does exactly what it says on the bottle. It cleanses and moisturises my skin all in one go. It's a great time saver, and I know that I can also get away with not applying a moisturiser afterwards if I forget.
My Fiance also likes it, he has started using it to shave as it foams enough on the skin for him to shave, but the oil helps him to get a clean, close shave with no nicks or razor burn. His skin is also left lovely and soft and smelling delicious afterwards. He simply splashes his face with water after shaving, and gently pats it dry, rubbing in any excess oil.
I'd recommend to anyone, especially if you are a busy Mum or Dad and don't have time to always moisturise. I'm sure children would enjoy the scent of this luxurious product too.
Thanks for another fantastic product QVC and L'Occitane. Maybe a Lavender shower oil would be great to add to the collection? Just an idea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shewolf One of my desert island products!
This is the most amazing shower oil! Works either as a bath additive, a shower cream or shaving oil. Leaves skin beautifully soft and moisturised but the real highlight of using this product is the aroma. Absolutely gorgeous!!! It lasts on the skin for ages and wafts through the house when you are using it. I stocked up on this when it was on easy pay on beauty day...supposed to be for Xmas presents...and it is...mine!!!! xx

Rated 3 out of 5 by burgundy not the saviour I'd hoped for
I have very dry slightly sensitive skin and hoped this would moisturise my skin more by using this each day,
It's fine and fairly pleasant to use but has not lived up to it's reputation. I am returning to my rich moisture shower cream.
I tried the almond and was disappointed in the honey edge to the fragrance.

I use this as a bath foam and it leaves my skin beautifully soft and has a lovely subtle fragrance. Mixes perfectly with bath water and doesn't leave the bath dangerously slippery. Highly recommended.

This is the best ever - the perfect mix of a shower gel and an oil. Words to describe this shower oil: soothing, luxurious, clean. Great for dry skin and when shaving my legs. A must for my shower!
Thanks L'occitane. Thanks, QVC.
