L'occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

My mother always says "you can tell the age of a woman just by looking at her hands", and as a girl who neglects her hands, I certainly gave myself a kick up the backside before the bitter cold approaches and before it's too late.

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream: £8

I handle money a lot of the time so washing my hands is a regular occurrence and there's nothing like harsh soap for making my hands dry. Which is why I look to the L'occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream *cue angels singing 'ahhhhhh'*. With it's multi award winning formula and 20% Shea Butter, this stuff screams hydration - and they're not wrong!

Never in my life have I enjoyed applying hand cream until now! I pop a 10p size blob on the back of my hand, rub it in working it in between my fingers and on my cuticles (which are screaming out for hydration) - leave for a few minutes and it's fully sunk into the skin and my hands are hydrated and super soft, baby soft in fact. The main reason for the thumbs up is how quickly this absorbs into the skin, there's nothing worse than greasy hands for hours on end. This has a lovely smell which is subtle and lingers on the skin even after it's absorbed. Another thumbs up!

I can't believe I've not tried this before now. I picked up my tube with last months Marie Claire but I guarantee when it runs out, I'll be getting another tube. I'm new to L'occitane but I'm really forming a love for their products, they never disappoint. I have incredibly dry skin on my body so I think I'll pick up the Almond Shower Oil and Shea Butter Ultra Rich Body Lotion next - bye bye wages!

Have you tried anything from L'occitane? What's your favourite product from them?

  5. I have to admit, I seriously neglect my hands, too - mainly because I hate that greasy, 'just moisturised' feeling, so I'll definitely be trying out this sample from my Marie Claire issue - it was being ignored at the bottom of my sample box, haha xx

  7. L'Occitane's handcreams are my absolute favorite! They're not one bit greasy and absorb really well. The little tubes last longer than I would expect, which is good.

  9. I wanted this one from Marie Claire but it seemed to be the most popular as there were none left anywhere! So I picked up Mango Flower instead. It's so thick and creamy and super moisturising! Perfect size for your handbag too xx
