L'Occitane almond shower oil

I ordered a few bottles of this shower oil before L'Occitane lost their bunny and I was just wondering how you actually USE it? Do you use a loofah or a bath lily or just pour it on to your hand?

I just pour it on to my hand as I found it got a bit lost on a loofa and then loofa-ed (sp!) once it was on my skin. Don't know if that's the 'proper' way though!

I always use my hands rather than a bath lily as if I do it runs out before I get down to my legs. It is lovely, but doesn't lather much or seem to go far.

When you say "lost their bunny" do you mean their formulas are no longer cruelty free? I'm trying to be eco/gree/cruelty aware, but love L'Occitane so read the ingredients lists quite closely product-by-product and I hadn't heard about this so I'm concerned.

It's lovely to use like a shaving gel.

Thanks for the advice, ladies. I completely agree that it gets lost in loofahs and bath lilies.

MaybeBentley L'Occitane now trade in China who insist on animal testing, unfortunately. sad'occitane's-position-on-animal-testing,83,1,29599,259188.htm

I have a giant one and put a squirt in my bath water or use it on a shower scrunchie. It lathers gently that way.

I lovd it but won't get any more until they pull out of china.
