L’occitane Shea butter hand cream.

Face and Body October 23, 2013 Naomi

I have been buying L’occitane products for many years now and along with Elemis it is one of my favourite Beauty brands. The shea butter hand cream is one of their iconic products and is usually featured in a Beauty editors Top ten.

If you are a dry skin sufferer like me then you have probably tried every hand cream under the sun. In winter especially my hands get very flaky and dry and sometimes sore. I always have hand cream laying about the house and at least two in my bag so I can put it on whenever I need to.

The L’occitane hand cream so they tell us contains shea butter, honey, coconut  oil and almond extracts, all formulated to provide protection and nourishment to dry hands. It’s texture is readily absorbed to leave hands soft and smooth.

It comes in a metal or plastic tube that I think is supposed to resemble the tubes of oil paint you can buy in art shops. I love this as it is very quirky and different to the run of the mill tubes. It has a really thick consistency that is great for layering up at night when you want a good hand treatment. It does not leave a greasy residue so it is ok to use in the day when you don’t want a slippy hand.

The smell reminds me of baby powder  and is very subtle so if highly perfumed creams are not your thing then this will be perfect for you.

Without a doubt this is the best Hand cream I have ever tried and even though it is very expensive {£19 for 150ml} it will last you a very long time. I have been using mine since  Feb and it is still going strong. A little really does go a long way.

What do you think about the L’occitane hand cream??? Is there one out there to rival it??.
