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 to Use

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.

Best hand cream ever!

I live in Minnesota, where we have very cold, dry winters, and when I apply this hand cream before bed every night, my hands stay moisturized and fresh! Without it, they get dry and cracked. My profession also requires constant hand washing or sanitizing, and it helps with that as well. The scent is so pleasant and not too strong (good for people with scent allergies) and it feels soooo good on your hands! A little goes a long way. Definitely worth the cost!!

Not sure what the fuss is about...

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.

Overpriced mediocrity!

I know some people consider L'OCCITANE as a luxe brand but if that's the case, this hand cream should be cheaper. It's very thick but not very moisturizing. I assume it's because of the many chemicals. You can slightly smell the shea via a hint of nuttiness but beyond that it smells very generic but not overbearing. Also, please take not that I have eczema. I know many products work better for "everyday" people but if you're like me, look elsewhere.

Very moisturizing

This leaves my hands hydrated and my cuticles looking nice. I had a friend use it & they immediately purchased it. The scent is nice but a little bit strong & long lasting for me- the version at your local grocery store with the Hawaiian shirts has a nicer, lighter scent.
