The brand’s new La Collection de Grasse Eau de Toilette features four winning scents.

L'OCCITANE

Birchbox Breakdown

According to L'OCCITANE, one tube of this shea-infused hand cream is sold every three seconds around the world. As longtime fans, we’ve been contributing to this dizzying record—we whip it out whenever our hands are feeling dry. The nourishing formula has been scoring beauty awards for years. The best part? It has a velvety consistency and doesn’t leave skin greasy.

How it Works

Made with a high concentration of shea butter, the dense balm absorbs quickly to provide instant relief from dryness. Antioxidant-packed vitamin E keeps telltale signs of aging at bay, while honey and sweet almond extract nourish dehydrated, chapped hands. The alluring aroma comes courtesy of sweet-smelling jasmine and ylang-ylang essences.

How to Use

Massage a dime-sized dollop into your hands until the cream sinks into your skin. Reapply as often as needed.

Smells great, leaves hands silky!
Purchased

This smells great, and leaves the hands silky, not greasy! I was a little hesitant to order because of the price, but so worth it! A little definitely goes a long way.

Perfect for chapped hands

Thanks to this brutal winter and my subpar glove-wearing, my hands have been very chapped. But after using this hand cream a few times, my hands are so smooth. The cream is thick, so I probably won't use it all the time, but it's perfect for a little winter TLC.

Simply Amazing

I love this lotion! It has a fabulous scent that is not too overpowering. Great to heal cracked or red skin on my dry hands - and elbows too! - during the dry, winter months.

Forever love affair.

I am completely addicted to the L'Occitane product line. ALl of their creams are absolutely amazing and not over fragranced. The shea is not at all a let down and I readily suggest this to any woman to get through East Coast winters.

Nice Hand Cream
Purchased

Very moisturizing and quick drying and not greasy. Not in love with the scent though. Smells a little too much like baby powder or something.

Best hand cream ever

This is hand-down, my favorite hand cream ever. It revives even middle of winter, gloveless, dried out hands within seconds of applying. It's non-greasy, so I can apply it while driving without losing the ability to hold the steering wheel, definite must since I am constantly on the go. A must have !

The Best Body Cream Ever!

I am absolutely in love with this shea butter hand cream! I have tried others and not one has compared to the long lasting effects of L'OCCITANE! I would recommend this to everyone!

Amazing!

This is the best hand cream ever. My hands were suffering big time from the winter weather and this was the only stuff that finally worked and didn't leave my hands all gross and greasy!

Not sure what the fuss is about...

This lotion was alright, but really, only alright. It moisturized my hands temporarily, but they are still dry and cracked and quite frankly, it is not as good as the product I was using before--which cost far less. Additionally, I found the scent very unpleasant and not at all light like other reviews had stated. Overall, I am incredibly disappointed that I spent so much on a lotion which is nothing more than average.
