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.
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.2
And it really works, makes your hands smooth, your cuticles nice. BUT it has a really heavy scent, and i can't stand more than a little fragrance in any of my make-up, hair products, soap, and yes handcreme. If you don't mind a heavy fragrance, this is really a good deal for a product that lasts a long time and goes a long way. plus, the packaging is adorable.2
My husband got this as a gift. We both used it all of the time during the winter to help our dry hands. I have what would be considered extremely dry hands in the winter and this hand cream quenched my skin!3
I received a sample size in my Birchbox and I haven't used it much. The reason for that being that it is very greasy and I feel like I need to wipe my hands off after I apply it. I would use it once in a while when my hands are extremely dry, but not everyday.3
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.3
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.3
Love the l'Occitane brand. This hand cream is lovely but my poor dry hands in the winter need a more intense hand cream .3
L'Occitane's hand creams are the best! They absorb quickly and don't leave behind any greasy residue. Why only three stars, then? Because this is my least favorite scent of any of their hand creams. I've had the Verbena (very fresh and clean) and Cherry Princess (fruity and slightly floral) and enjoyed both of those, plus I've sampled other varieties before, but I just don't like how the 'basic' one smells. It reminds me of baby products, in kind of a bad, cloying way.3
I can see why they say that one of these hand creams is sold every three seconds around the world. It smells great, goes on light, and feels luxurious. My only complaint is that I felt like I had to apply often, so my tube ran out quickly. Other than that I love the feel of this hand cream.3
This hand cream is truly great. Perfect to keep in your purse and it feels amazing on your skin. I have bought many a tube of this stuff, and will continue to do so, I just wish that they offered it other scents. I love being able to match my scents with the seasons and would love if this came in a warm vanilla smell for Fall and Winter, something more flowery and light for Spring and Summer, etc. But otherwise, it's perfect!4
