L’Occitane Aromachologie is a lovely line of products, all filled with essential oils and other goodies.
This line comes in dark brown glass (or plastic depending on what it’s for) bottles and jars with old-timey style labels, which makes them look like vintage apothecary jars. I love that!
Relaxing Massage Body Oil comes in a glass bottle and is made with the ever-delicious sweet almond oil, lavender, mandarin, orange and other oils. It has a very natural overall scent, which mostly smells like lavender to me. It’s silky and smooth making it really good for massaging into the skin. It’s definitely oily (duh) but after it sinks in, it doesn’t leave your skin slippery and slick feeling, like you’ve just been basted with lard. I don’t use massage oil very often, but maybe that’s because I never really had any at home! And now to make this a weekly ritual with Mr. VV… 😉
Revitalizing Body Scrub contains small sugary crystals, perfect for sloughing off dead skin. It comes in this adorable plastic jar and it’s just so cute! I guess glass jars + slippery showers don’t mix too well. This scrub is made with sunflower oil and lemon zest as well as orange, grapefruit, mint, lemon and rosemary. All those ingredients make it smell super refreshing and citrus-y. The scrubby sugar bits feel pretty fine, so no need to worry about scratching your skin off if you get a little carried away in the shower. I like it because it leaves my skin feeling really soft and somehow moisturized, and also doesn’t leave a weird film on the bottom of my shower.
Relaxing Shower Gel comes in a plastic bottle and is made with all sorts of essential oils, giving it a very natural scent, like the massage oil has. It starts off as a gel, but then starts foaming up a bit. I’ll be honest. For a shower gel I prefer a more fruity or flowery scent, and I like MAJOR bubbles as well. There is a Revitalizing Shower Gel in the line, which probably has more of an uplifting scent that I might prefer. I guess this would be good for a nighttime shower or bath when you actually want to wind down, but normally I take showers in the morning and I need them to help me WAKE UP!
You can find all these goodies as well as many more in this line on the L’Occitane website now.
