L'Occitane Cleansing & Softening Almond Shower Oil

Best Moisturizing Body Wash for Dry Skin

Why people love it
  • Heavenly almond smell 
  • Leaves your skin extremely soft and hydrated
  • Doubles as both a body wash and shaving oil


This shower oil actually works into a light foam to cleanse as well as moisturize. It also works as shaving oil and there’s a refill which is good for the environment.

Besides the price, it doesn’t lather as much as some users might want.


Who's it for? This extremely moisturizing body wash is made for women with dry, flaky skin.

Texture: This shower oil is almost heavenly. It feels like luxury as you smooth it on your skin. The light, not greasy what-so-ever, oil creates gentle suds that turn into a milky foam upon contact with water. 

Fragrance: The fragrance is so good you might want to eat it. It's light, has a beautiful smell of almond, and does an amazing job of moisturizing your skin. As a bonus, the scent doesn't linger too much once you get out of the shower. 

Ingredients: The main ingredient, almond oil, is naturally rich in omega 6 fatty acids. This is what helps to soften your skin.

L'Occitane almonds are sourced from a special region in Haute Provence, where some of the most delicious and nutritious almonds grow. L'Occitane supports the sustainability of almond trees in the region, as these trees, while difficult to grow, are a staple to the beauty of the Provencal landscape.

Other active ingredients include grapevine and rosemary. It’s also paraben and sulfate-free and it’s made from natural ingredients. We wish it were also a cruelty-free brand, but it appears you can’t have everything.

Price: The price for the standard size is $25 for the 8.4-ounce size, but there's also a mini size you can try, too. Although it is on the pricey side, L'Occitane users claim it’s worth every cent.

It really could be as it’s moisturizing enough that many women can skip body lotion when stepping out of the shower. C’mon, who doesn’t love the idea of that?
