Product Review: L’OCCITANE

The lovely Rubybox girls made my day by sending over a parcel of delicious goodness for my skin. Upon receiving the box, I could already smell the sweetness of almond and honey. I couldn’t wait to see what was in side



To my delight I had received L’OCCIATNE Almond Shower Oil (75ml) and Shea Butter Hand Cream (30ml)


L’OCCITANE offer high quality beauty products and fragrances, developed following the principles phytotherapy and aromatherapy. Most of their products include: Organic Immortelle, Organic Myrtle, Shea Butter, Almonds, Organic Cade, Rose, Lavendar, just to name a few.


As winter is approaching fast, the Almond Shower Oil couldn’t have come at a better time. I have always battled with very dry skin, especially on my legs, to the point that even after moisturizing with creams it remains cracked and itchy. I couldn’t wait so I immediately tried  out the Almond Shower Oil.

I like to leave shower oils for last so my skin can absorb as much as possible. What’s interesting about the L’OCCITANE Shower oil, is that it almost activates with the water and turns it in to a rich foamy lather. Its super soft on your skin and you can immediately feel the moisture.

The next morning I examined my legs, my cracked skin had nearly zero cracks and the itchiness was non-existent and that was just after one use. Finally a product that really works with fast results- yay!


The hand cream is just as magic. I’m a regular hand washer , so I’m constantly moisturizing my hands.  The Shea Butter hand cream moisturizers my hands quickly and leaves them soft and smooth. I haven’t been apart from it since.


The L’OCCITANE Almond Shower Oil (75ml) Retails at R115

and Shea Butter Hand Cream (30ml) Retails at R150
