L’Occitane Shampoo, Shower Oil, Hand Cream and Soap Review

Today’s post is all about a L’Occitane set that I have been sent from L’Occitane to review on my blog. I am a huge fan of L’Occitane each and every products. When i was given opportunity to review L’Occitane, i was like over the moon. There are total 4 products in the box, Amande Shower Oil, Verbena Shampoo, Extra-Gentle Soap and Shea Butter Hand Cream for Dry Skin.

L’Occitane Amande Shower Oil

What L’Occitane says: This shower oil transforms, when in contact with water, into a delicate foam that gently cleanses the body. Enriched with almond oil, it respects the hydrolipidic film and leaves a subtle and mouth-watering scent of fresh almond, for a delightful skin!

Ingredients: MIPA Laureth Sulfate, Laureth 3, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil (Grape), Capric/Caprylic Stearic Triglyceride, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil (Sweet Almond), Sorbitan Oleate, Perfume (Fragrance), PEG 7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Cocamide MEA, Propylene Glycol, Tocopherol (Natural Vitamin E), Glycine Soja Oil (Soybean), Limonene, Coumarin, Linalool

This shower oil comes in a small transparent bottle with a cute, silver flip open cap.  The bottle looks cool and classy. It has a mild fragrance typically of almond oil mixed with a little bit of floral scents.

Oil is light brown in color exactly like almond oil, the texture is also the same,This oil is slightly thick. It feels warm when rubbed between the palms and I enjoy it. I have used this product before and I love it. I pour it into my hands and rub all over. The scent is fresh, beautiful and clean with a hint of honey sweetness. It does lather into a milky foam and when rinsed it leaves my skin soft and hydrated. I just love this oil.

L’Occitane Verbena Shampoo

What L’Occitane says: This daily use shampoo gently cleanses your hair without irritating the scalp. Enriched with organic verbena extract, purifying lemon essential oil and softening linden floral water, it restores softness, shine and vitality to hair. The sparkling and zesty scents of citrus fruits leave hair fresh and pleasantly perfumed. Suitable for all hair types.

This shampoo comes in a small transparent bottle with a cute, silver flip open cap. It smells amazingly citrusy and lemony and leaves a gorgeous fragrance behind. It leaves the scalp squeaky clean without having to use a ton of products. Even when I had oiled my hair, I didn’t need a lot of shampoo to wash my hair. It lathers quite well. It leaves my hairs feeling soft, fresh and silky. If you have oily scalp then i would say you should try this shampoo, but not for those with dry hair and scalp.

L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

What L’Occitane says: Enriched with 20% Shea Butter, the super-creamy Shea Butter Hand Cream penetrates quickly to protect, nourish and moisturise hands. Honey, almond extracts and coconut oil are blended with shea butter to create this extremely effective care. The rich texture is rapidly absorbed to leave the hands soft and smooth with no oily traces. Apply day and night as needed.

Hand cream is something I need at least a couple of times a day, just so that my hands can stay soft instead of dry and scaly. L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream comes in aluminum tubes. It’s a bit “nutty” and a bit flowery smell. It contains 20% of shea butter, and the texture is very thick. When I squeeze it out of the tube, the cream actually retains its shape. I guess it works extremely well when it comes to using a hand cream it in rigid air-conditioned environments. It keeps my skin hydrated for hours to come and even after washing hands the moisturization isn’t lost completely.

If you are looking for a nice effective hand cream, L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream is the best pick.

L’Occitane Milk Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap

What L’Occitane says: Formulated with a 100% vegetable base and nourishing shea butter, this milk scented soap gently cleanses the skin, helping to preserves its natural moisture balance.

Their Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap comes in three scents: milk, verbena and lavender. It is great value for money albeit at the higher end of the soap market. It’s a gentle soap that feels super creamy but also lathers welI. I just love smell of this soap so much. I have never realized the touch of harshness of the soap I have used until it was missing

The Shea Butter used in the soap which actually comes from Africa; soothes and protects the skin and is well-known for its moisturising properties. L’Occitane are socially responsible company and their Shea Butter is harvested by hand by women in Shea-processing collectives of Burkina Faso, supporting economic recovery and heritage of natural harvesting traditions. From there L’Occitane take the harvested butter to Provence, France where it is used in their creams, lotions, soaps etc.
