L'Occitane's Verbena Shower Gel

I'm a bath person; I always have been, and I presume I always will be. There's nothing more relaxing for me than having a long soak surrounded by amazingly scented bubbles.

However being at University, a bath is now a luxury, which I induldge in when I visit home.
When showering, I like to use a luxurious product as it makes the whole procedure a lot more pleasant. L'Occitane is a brand I've been aware of for years, thanks to my lovely Mum being a huge fan. She first introduced me to the brand's Shea Butter Hand Cream (which is now a staple in my own handbag) and since then I've shared her love for their products.

This particular product (L'Occitane's Verbena Shower Gel to be specific) came with me on my Summer holiday this Year, and it really is something... not this bottle however; as lucky me, you can see this is yet to be opened! :D

What I love the most about this shower gel is the zesty scent. If you step into the shower half asleep, take a whiff of this and it wakes you up in an instant.

There are several reasons that set this apart from similar (and cheaper) products on the market. The major reason for me is the after result on your skin.
I've tried shower gels enriched with similar fragrances, however after use my skin has been left feeling dry, itchy and tight. This certainly doesn't occur with L'Occitane's version. After use my skin feels both soft and refreshed.
The consistancy is also brilliant. You barely have to use any of this product, and it lasts ages.
At £13 it is a fair bit pricier than your average shower gel, however I think it's worth every penny and have already gone through a few bottles.

There is also a foaming bath soak version of this product which I think I may have to try out soon!
