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! =)
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.
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.
