Davines OI Hand Balm

Unless you’re a really fancy lady, you’re probably not wearing opera gloves every day, which means that your hands are vulnerable to the rapid aging effect of UV damage. Luckily, this hydrating, nourishing, and protective hand cream is filled with equally fancy ingredients: antioxidant-rich roucou oil (which stimulates melanin production, decreases UV damage, and reduces the appearance of aging); nourishing olive oil; and hydrating glycerin.

Lovely hands
Purchased

I am obsessed with pretty hands. I absolutely LOVE this hand cream. My cuticles are soft, my hands look and feel amazing, and don't forget about the intoxicating scent.

Only 3 stars because I miss the old one!
Purchased

I bought Davines hand creme several times before, and the kind I ordered before has been discontinued. So I ordered this new one, even thought it's more expensive. Here's what I found:

Doesn't smell as good as the old one, and doesn't moisturize as well. Seems not as thick, BUT it does absorb really quickly, which is a great feature.

I won't order it again, but I will finish this one happily.

Absolutely perfxr

I have never been a fan of hand lotion but I decided to give this a try as an add-on since I liked the shampoo I tried from Davines. Let me just say I have gone from hating hand lotion to being an obsessive moisturizer! Lol...love this stuff!

Great except for scent

WOW...I just used this for the first time and I don't think my hands have ever felt softer. I can't testify to the lasting benefits but so far it seems to be a fantastic mosturizer. HOWEVER, the scent is so strong I'm not sure I'll be able to use it regularly. It is the kind of scent that will give you a headache. Very sad since the cream itself seems amazing so far.

Smells great but not the best moisturizer
Purchased

I love love love this scent and I would definitely recommend this lotion. However, not a super intense moisturizer.

Light and not that moisturizing
Purchased

I bought this without sampling it after I used the Davines Hair Oil. The hair oil smells incredible and this was supposed to be the same scent. Maybe it's more concentrated, but it's a little too smelly for me. The actual lotion is very light and not very moisturizing.

The Only Hand Cream I Use!!
Purchased

I have used so many different hand creams over the years. This one is the one for me!! It smell good, it's not greasy, and you don't need to use a lot of it to moisturizer your hands.

Amazing!
Purchased

I ordered this because I had received various other Davines products in my Birchbox as samples and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the smell of all of their products. This one is no exception.... smells and feels amazing as well! Pricey, but Davines is one of those luxury, special ocaasion type products that is worth it!

Lasting moisture, great scent
Purchased

I've been pleasantly surprised by this hand balm. I purchased it because I love the Davines Oi scent. What I didn't expect was how long my hands feel moisturized without feeling greasy. It absorbs quickly but I don't feel the constant need to reapply it that I get with other moisturizers.

Very Meh
Purchased

So I ordered this because my hands are always very dry in winter and the previous reviewers raved about how much they loved the smell. I however do not agree. The smell reminds me of old grandma perfume, unfortunately. The consistency however is really nice. Doesn't leave your hands goopy or with film over it like other hand lotions or body butters do. For the price, it left me regretting purchasing it.
