Lovely soap but exfoliating
This is a beautiful soap and I love the combination of this with the almond shower oil and body cream. It has a lovely soft scent and stays on your skin afterwards. It does have exfoliating particles though and so I don’t buy it often - find it a bit scratchy especially as it gets worn in, and it rubs off fake tan!

Another lovey Almond scented product
I sometimes use this in the shower when I want a stronger exfoliation on my arms, legs and hands. Scrubbing isn't necessary and it lathers up well. The scent is stronger when its being used but after you wash & dry, its far lighter, more subtle. I find the scent quite lovely. Its moisturising and very portable. It is small so doesn't last as long as other soaps but I only use it occasionally for the reason I already mentioned.
Use when you need more skin exfoliation or as part of a hand treatment before applying hand cream.
Anyone who enjoys an almond scent.

Good exfoliator for the body
I like the soap bars from L'occitane in general. This one is a bit different because it is an exfoliating soap. It is an almond soap so it has that a stronger almond scent. However, after applying it on the body, it leave a more subtle scent on the skin.
I only use this for my body and I try not to rub it too hard into the skin as the exfoliating beads can be quite abrasive. It gives my skin a good cleanse and exfoliation. I have already used up this soap but when I did use it, I didn't use it everyday due to the exfoliating beads. I probably used it every second or third day.
If using this product on the body, don't rub too hard as the exfoliating beads can be a bit abrasive.

LOVE this soap
I absolutely LOVE this soap. It's so fancy and you can see the lovely ingredients in the product. It has some substance to it... The exfoliating particles are quite abrasive, but there isn't heaps of them in the soap, so I think for everyday use it's still quite gentle (I would only use it on my body though). The whole family loves this one!
All skin types.

A worthy soap bar to use
This soap bar came as part of the $30 Almond Voyage Set in Christmas 2018. Loved the Christmas packaging, and I still have a bit of this soap left.
If you want to take some time out from your normal soaps (especially of the liquid variety); you should be incredibly pleased with this one. Acts like an exfoliator due to the real almond bits. It is a real treat to wash my hands with this soap. Love the shape too. It is currently positioned on my kitchen sink. Nice to use after washing those dishes.
A great soap to use after washing your hands, after either going to the toilet; and also after washing the dishes by hand.
Those beauties who want to give their hands a wash, together with a bit of exfoliation.

Get soaked in hydration
I have a very dry skin and in order to par in moisture, I had always heard that Almonds are a great source. So I tried this Almond enriched soap with the intention to add moisture to my skin. But when I tried it, the first thing you would notice is the sweet smell.
This soap easily lathers and when you apply on the skin, you already feel so pampered. After the wash, feel a fresh smell and instant plump . You yourself would feel the difference and of course feel fresh and dewy like the almonds.
Use it once daily and followup with a hydrating lotion

This is an almond soap that has a lovely fragrance. It reminds me of an almond dessert, it smells so good! The scent lasts as long as you wash it off though, so after my shower I could only get the very very faintest whiff, and only because I knew what it smelt like.
It has a smooth creamy lather, and washes off cleanly with no residue. My skin feels clean but not dried out.
The soap is very pretty, with the logo imprinted into it, and I like that it's quite firm, as it doesn't melt and get gloopy.
There are exfoliating particles, but it's very scratchy for me. The particles are like tiny gritty pieces, and they're very few and far between. Also, I don't usually rub the soap directly on my body, so this didn't work for me as a scrub.
But this is still a very lovely soap. I have really enjoyed all of L'occitanes soaps and this is no exception!

Great exfoliant of equally excellent quality!
This exfoliating soap bar is perfect in the shower or bath, and gets rid of dead skin cells without harming the skin beneath. It is luxurious in its quality, demonstrated through its scent and quality ingredient composition. The product is perfect as an all over body exfoliator for travel, and is small in size and perfect for a small space like a suitcase. the almond oil infused throughout is fragrant and beautiful on the skin!

Scented Shower Scrub
I am a huge fan of the L'Occitane Almond collection and this exfoliating soap is no different.
Because I have super sensitive skin (I can get into trouble very easily if I stray from Cetaphil-type shower products), I would only use this once a week max, more like once a fortnight, but I'm still so happy I can use it at all.
It has the divine scent of all of their almond products, and the rough beads do a great job of a quick exfoliation.
It's price is fantastic (obviously for me it lasts so long, but I imagine it has a good life even with regular usage), and I often get it to add to a gift.
Great to try if you've seen L'Occitane Almond collection and wanted to try but can't part with the $$$ for their more expensive products
