Skin Care Review: L'Occitane Shea Honey Hand Cream


LoccitaneHoney

I recently saw L'Occitane doing a give away upon their Facebook page. On reaching 75000 likes they promised to send out vouchers so that their customers could redeem one tube of their 30ml hand cream. You were allowed to choose between Shea Honey, Shea Butter, Lavender, Cherry Blossom and Rose des Champs.

Although tempted by the beautiful floral scent of Rose des Champs, I chose the Shea Honey Hand Cream and it is just wonderful! To be brutally honest I never purchased an item from L'Occitane before and my previous experience with the brand comes from sneaking a dash of my mums creams from time to time.

However, the Shea honey hand cream is part of a limited edition range so I just had to pick it!  It has such a delicious and sweet scent of honey, which proves to be very long lasting. It also contains twenty per cent of natural Shea butter, which has worked its wonders in nurturing and revitalising my winter damaged hands. The thick white cream soaks in to the hands, leaving them instantly soft and nourished and without the usual stickiness associated with hand creams.

The creamy formula is also gentle enough for those with sensitive skin and I put this down to all the lovely natural ingredients within. It really does soothe and comfort tired and aching hands. I write all day, every day, so I would know!

To top this wonderful product off, the packaging is just adorable! A little illustrated brown bear sits eating his honey as his bee companions buzz around him tending to their hive.

This cream is only available in 30ml so is brilliantly handy for those constantly on the go. Unfortunately, it is still limited edition, so those who have fallen in love (like me) then you best stock up quick!

Have you tried L'Occitane hand creams before? What was your experience?

  1. I absolutely love L'Occitane hand creams and tbh, I mostly refuse to use anything else! My hands always feel incredible and just like you, I absolutely love the packaging!

  3. This hand cream sounds great! I had a rose scented hand cream by L'Occitane a few months ago, but didn't really care for it, but this sounds like a winner! Oh and the packaging is very cute :)

    Stop by and check out my blog giveaway! :)
