L’Occitane Delicious Almond Collection

LOccitane-Almond-Star-Gift-Box-inside

When choosing a luxury beauty gift my main rule of thumb is to go for something I’d personally love but would struggle to treat myself to - either a single luxe make-up item or a pampering set like this L’Occitane Delicious Almond Collection. There are no duds here; no fillers to fob us off with… each and every item in the box is one that I’d treasure.

The Almond Shower Oil is the star of the show - half a litre of it with a pump bottle that makes using it so easy. This goes on like an oil, lathers when wet and rinses off leaving soft, moisturised skin with no residue. I honestly can’t imagine a shower product that feels or smells lovelier. Milk Concentrate body cream is rich and sumptuous and comes in a vintage style glass jar. The Skin Oil is gorgeous on any areas that need extra nourishment and can be used alone or a few drops added to the body cream. The hand cream is up to the usual standard and allows me an extra waft of the scent throughout the day, as does the soap for hand washing (though in all honesty I’d leave this for a guest).

I’m not a fan of overpowering almond scents and happily this one is very gentle - to me it smells like warm skin and using it conjures up that feeling of climbing into a freshly made up bed in clean PJs after a gorgeous bath. Which is where I’m headed right now…
