For one, I adore the way that the formula manages to be incredibly moisturizing while also sinking right in. (There is nothing worse than when products leave a thick, goopy residue on your hands. Major ick.) Full of shea butter, coconut oil, and aloe, just a pea-size amount of this cream keeps my hands hydrated and soft for hours.
I also happen to be a HUGE sucker for pretty packaging. As a beauty editor, I come across a lot of products; for me personally, it makes a big difference when something is both effective and beautiful to display on my vanity. Everything in the Tocca line—from their soaps, to their perfumes, to even their laundry detergents— appears luxurious and sophisticated, which is exactly the kind of look and feel I want in my home.
But the real reason to invest in Tocca products? The fragrances. They are divine, in every sense of the word. I am particularly fond of the Cleopatra scent of my new hand cream (a product being sampled in this month’s November boxes). A mix of grapefruit and cucumber, the aroma is so light and refreshing, I have been reapplying even when I don’t need to. In fact, since I’ve been keeping the hand cream at my desk, it’s been a great pick-me-up during the work day. Trust me, there is nothing like a clean citrus scent to instantly lift you mood and spirits. It's a scent so regal it'll leave you feeling like the queen from whom it borrows its name.
