Current Obsession: Almonds

Anyone I went to school with knows I had a serious cherry bakewell addiction, so when it got down to weening myself off my one box a day (!) habit, I needed a big marzipan fix somehow. So here are my favourite almond products that I just can not put down at the moment!

First up are two products which I'm sure need no introduction: the L'Occitane Almond Shower Oil and the L'Occitane Almond Supple Skin Oil. Both products have a much more "grown-up" almond scent, with the shower oil only smelling great whilst you use it but it's the body oil that really stands out fragrance-wise - it lingers on the skin all day and I can't stop smelling my arms when I have this on! My only gripe is that you need a lot of the body oil to cover yourself so I've been desperately rationing it (this stuff ain't cheap!).

Now, the Body Shop's Almond Body Butter is the sickly sweet marzipan smell I was hoping for - this stuff smells amazing! It's aimed at normal/dry skin so probably isn't as nourishing as I'd like but I generally love the thickness of body butters regardless, and the Body Shop's are definitely my fave!

Finally, is a product that has sadly been discontinued (why Lush, why?!): the Creamed Almond and Coconut Shower Smoothie, which is a weird concept to's like a soap but much, much softer, so you can literally scoop this stuff out and slap it on! I'm not a massive fan of coconut but the main scents that come through are definitely vanilla and almond. This is packed full of natural oils so my skin absolutely loved this.

Are you as crazy for almond as I am? What's your favourite scent?


  1. the body shop product are awesome...

  2. I love anything almond scented too! Also sad about that Lush smoothie being discontinued, though I've heard rumours they're bringing out something similar soon x

    1. Oh my god, that is the best news I've had all day! haha :) xx
