L’Occitane Hand Cream Review

I know I’ve been slacking in this area for the longest time and I do apologize. So here’s a review on one product that I’ve been using all winter and absolutely loooove it! I’m almost done with the regular hand cream from L’Occitane so I went to the store to check on some more of their hand creams.

I’ve never really cared about my hands until this past winter when I’ve started using hand creams religiously as well as using gloves when I’m washing dishes. Hands are just as delicate as eyes & neck area as they are the most common areas to showing signs of aging, so protect them whenever you can and be sure to always moisturize! =)

Comes in variety of scents

The acai flower smells nice & currently on sephora’s website.

The rose scent which I absolutely love
however they don’t carry it at sephora.
Price $10

Where to Purchase: L’Occitane or Sephora. Also I’ve been using Bing Cashback to link to sephora and purchase since it gives you 10% cashback regularly. That’s better than what Ebates gives you normally 4% & only during promotions where I’ve seen it go as high as 8%. I’ve actually gotten 20% cashback through Bing and you betcha I took advantage of that. =P

What it claims: This hand treatment protects, nourishes and softens your hands.

What it actually does: It says exactly what it states. After I apply the regular cream, it’s pretty thick but after a min or two, my hand absolutely absorbs it all in leaving behind such smooth silky hands. It doesn’t feel greasy at all and my hands are so moisturized throughout the day.

Skin Type: any

Likelihood of Repurchase: 100% YES. I mean for $10, it seems pricey but it’s actually not that bad. I’ve used one for the whole winter and still have 1/4 left. I think I’ll save that for next winter. Also you don’t need so much to cover your whole hands – a dollop of it is more than enough. Absolutely love it! I bought two of the rose hand cream today, which came out recently in the hand cream version. They normally have it in the larger size.

  1. oOoO I love the way their stuff smells. I have a travel friendly sized body cream from them it’s called L’Occitane Lait Corporel Verveine . Smells sooo good. Haven’t tried out their hand creams. Perfect timing on this review Mel, I just ran out of my hand cream!! I usually buy the one from Bath & Body Works True Blue Spa line.. It’s called “Look ma, new hands” It’s softening hand lotion with paraffin. It’s expensive too, $12 for 2.5oz but our bodies are worth it!

  2. haha.. love the title! yeah, $10 can’t be beat! =D

  3. I totally agree! I LOVE L’Occitane hand cream. I think it’s honestly the best for on the go. So light. The Cherry Blossom one is my favorite – it’s a more of a gel texture though. I think I’m going to get lavender next year.

    For nighttime I still prefer their Grape Beauty Body Oil or Crabtree & Evelyn’s Hand Therapy for some heavy duty moisturization though, and then it doesn’t matter if they’re a bit greasier.

  4. L’Occitane hand creams are my HG of hand creams! I always have one in my drawer at work. In my purse I use reg lotion though, gotta use those up!

    But I love how hydrated my hand feel after the L’Occitane. Working with paper all the time my hands seriously get so dry & cracked.

  5. I’m addicted to the Rose 4 Reins scent, you knew that already! Yes this is a purse must for me.

  6. haha.. don’t i know it! a def must have for purse! =D
