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.

I don't get it...

I really don't get what the buzz is about with this product. The product itself doesn't smell great and doesn't work much better than other hand creams. Despite the description saying it won't leave skin greasy, I definitely did notice a residue on my hands. Since it has a high end price, I expected it to be really therapeutic and moisturizing but it just didn't work that well. Also, the tube is inconvenient. As the product runs out, it gets bent up, unsightly, and hard to use. Furthermore, the cap is too small.

The best!!

Love this hand lotion! The scent is wonderful and leaves hands smooth and moisturized. I do a lot of gardening, so I always have one of these in my purse, as well as my home. I've been using this hand cream for many years and I can say that it is by far, my favorite!!

Soft and not greasy

This is a go to for me for a hand cream. It is thick enough to give moisture in even the cracked dry areas of the hand, but not to greasy.

The Best Hand Cream EVER
Purchased

I subscribe to a lot of boxes. Hand cream is one of those things I get a lot of. But I pay for L'Occitane. I only wish they had the floral scents (Mango & Rose) in this large size. I keep the small ones everywhere...purse, gym bag, desk, car, and this large one is on my bed size table. I use it every night before bed and my hands look and feel great. My mother always told me to take care of my neck and hands...that is how people determine your age. And of course wear sunscreen!

L'Occintane

I haven't come across a L'Occitane product I haven't loved!!! The body butter, hand, and foot creams are by far my favorites along with the milk bar soap. Buy this and you will be hooked for life.

smooth!
Purchased

I really like this lotion. It isnt greasy, and doesn't leave you hands feeling like you dipped them in oil. It doesn't have a strong scent either, so you aren't going to overpower any sensitive noses. I have a tube at my desk so I dont offend the people sitting around me with heavily scented lotions, plus my keyboard won't get all gunky from the lotion. Now I have smooth hands all day long!

All time favorite
Purchased

This is one of my all time favorite hand creams. I use this a lot in the winter because it is thick and very moisturizing. My only complaint is the packaging. The aluminum tube needs to be flattened carefully or you leave behind a lot of product if it gets bend up and crinkled.

Love love love!

Just like the title says, love this hand cream! I love the smell (slightly perfumey, but still clean) it spreads easily, isn't sticky, isn't greasy, sinks in fast, and really works. And it's one of the largest tubes of hand cream I've seen, if you're balking at the price, think about the size. You only need a dime sized dab, this tube will last a long time, you definitely get your money's worth. Wish I bought this over the harsh winter, I could have used it! I wish Birchbox carried the foot cream also, as I'm now a huge L'Occitane fan and would love to try more of their shea creams!

Love this product!
Purchased

I purchased this for myself and my sister-in-law as a Christmas gift. I work in healthcare and wash my hands all the time! They usually become very dry in the winter and crack. This product prevented cracking this winter!

Five stars, and rightly so.

Can't beat the best. One of the nicest, best smelling, and most trustworthy hand creams out there. Even the packaging is almost indestructible, so it never explodes in your purse.
