L’Occitane has always been one of my go to stores when it comes to gifts! They have gorgeous curated boxes for both men and women with a wide range of products! One of which is the almond collection box. It comes with a shower oil, almond milk concentrate (body moisturizer), mini hand cream, mini exfoliating soap, and mini skin oil. Their almond range is definitely my favorite, because the fragrance is sweet, nutty and elegant. So today I thought I’d tell y’all all about this gift set and why I love it so much!
Incorporating a shower oil into your skin care routine is something I’d highly encourage. I love shower oils because you don’t need to worry about rubbing them in fully, and they don’t leave your skin feeling sticky like normal moisturizers do. This shower oil turns into a light foam when it comes in contact with water, making it even easier to apply! It’s important to make sure you moisturize your skin especially in the winter when it gets dry from the cold air, and a shower oil is the perfect way to do it! If you love body oils but want one you can apply anytime, the supple skin oil is perfect! It’s made with more than 50% of almond oil making it super smooth and delicate, plus your skin will feel incredible!
Moisturizers are a winter staple for me and this box comes with two types, a mini hand cream and a body cream. The formula for their hand creams is incredible! They are super luxurious and similar to a whipped body butter. I pretty much always have a L’Occitane hand cream in my backpack because I love them so much! The body cream melts into your skin and feels wonderful, I like using this along with the shower oil for incredibly soft skin.
Last but not least is this exfoliating body soap, you can never have too many soaps (am I right?) and the best part is that it’s an exfoliator as well. Exfoliating both your body and skin is super important. It wipes away dead skin cells and helps your moisturizer to sink into your skin. This comes in very useful when you just couldn’t be bothered to exfoliate and want to simplify your shower routine as much as possible (lol).
Y’all know how much I love skincare, and I would be ecstatic if anyone gave me this for Christmas, so treat yourself or a friend and get this incredible gift set! Oh, and one of the best things is that it comes with a ten dollar note to spend in January!
What are your favorite L’Occitane products? Do you prefer shower oils, or a good moisturizer? I’d love to hear from y’all in the comments!
