L'Occitane Hand Cream

Hello darlings

A month or so back i picked up my usual copy of Marie Claire magazine and it came with this little gift. I just love it when they do that! The L'Occitane Hand Cream, it was available in a couple of different scents. I picked up the 'Zesty Lime' one as it appealed to me most.

'For me, this is the Rolls Royce of hand-creams- luxuriously rich, it sinks in seamlessly and is my desk-side saviour' -Cassie Steer, Beauty Writer, Marie Claire. 

I should start by saying this hand cream smells sooo good! I got it in the Zesty Lime scent, and i love it. The cream is great, it really softens your hands, great for dry skin. Its not too greasy, it dried and absorbed into the skin quickly. Beautiful packaging it looks really classy, especially the lid. Great design. I find this to be the perfect indulgent product and once this travel size runs out i will definitely by a bigger one. I can't wait to try the other scents, they range from fruity, to floral, so i can imagine there would be one for everyone's taste.
 It now has a new permanent place in my handbag. Plus they'd be a great idea for a Christmas gift!
They usually retail for £8. 

Have you tried any of the L'Occitane Hand Creams?

  1. You cannot beat L'Occitane hand creams. The past couple of years I have stocked up on Marie Claire just to get these hand creams half price. They are just so moisturizing and non-greasy and gorgeous. If only they weren't so expensive full price!

  2. I love anything citrusy, especially lemon and lime, so I need to get my hands on this! It's great that this is non-greasy because that's a complete turn off for me! Thanks for sharing.

  10. I have never heard of L'Occitane Hand Creams so thank you for blogging about it! My hands go really dry in the winter so have to constantly use hand cream to stop them from getting too dry... This cream seems like one I need to try, particularly if it comes in different scents!
