L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

This super-creamy balm penetrates the skin quickly to protect, moisturize, and replenish dehydrated hands.  The formula is enriched with 20 percent shea butter and other naturally nourishing ingredients like honey, almond, grape seed, and coconut oil for soft, beautiful skin.

Despite all the ooh-aaah's and rave reviews I see on L'Occitane products, I have never really gotten around to trying much from this brand.  I am just not sure why!  I have tried a few of their body/skincare products, though, and I was impressed enough with the L'Occitane Pure Shea Butter to go ahead and pick up the L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream.

I bought the L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream a long time back - am guessing it was a basket filler I added in to round up the Sephora bill to $50 - and forgot all about it until I discovered it during one of my cleaning sprees.  This is a mildly scented cream, and because of the shea butter mixed in to it, this is also quite moisturizing.  I was expecting something more greasy, but this is suprisingly fast-absorbing.  It's light enough to be used as a day cream yet does a good job of keeping my hands moisturized through the day.  Plus, it's available in smaller travel sizes that are perfect for carrying around in the bag.  Overall, a nice product to try out if you are new to the L'Occitane skincare range.

  2. How does this compare to the Crabtree and Evelyn Rosewater hand cream? My old hand cream ran out and I am trying to decide which one to buy...

    1. I think the L'Occitane cream is better - more moisturizing than the Rosewater cream from Crabtree. L'Occitane does have a bit of a cold cream smell, so check if the smell is okay for you before buying though..it's not unpleasant or bad..I actually don't mind it at all, but some people find those kind of scents old-fashioned, I think.
