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.

I really wanted to love this product

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.

greasy

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.

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.

Not sure what the fuss is about...
Purchased

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.

Nice

Love the l'Occitane brand. This hand cream is lovely but my poor dry hands in the winter need a more intense hand cream .

Great product, just not this scent

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.

Great fragrance and non-greasy hydration

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.

Hand cream

This dry skin formula has changed my skin appearance so much! I've always had dry skin and now with ageing going on just thought I was doomed. But after trying this cream has changed my life! Thank you so much!

Great Hand Cream!

This hand cream works wonders to your dry, cracked finders. I feel that it is a little on the greasy side compared to other hand creams that I like, but I use it before I go to bed under my spa gloves and the next morning my hands are so smooth.
