Blogmas Day 2: Ode to L'Occitane Hand Cream

2 December 2013

Okay, so this isn't actually going to be a poem (although my ode writing skills are pretty hot - I wrote one for David Tennant in A Level English*), but I'll be spending the next few paragraphs professing my love for one of my all time favourite products, L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream.

The more observant amongst you might have noticed that this isn't the first time this hand cream has featured on my blog. Back in January I declared that it was one of my snow heroes, and after repurchasing it more times than I'd like to remember over the last twelve months, it's still a beauty staple for me. I've given other hand creams a go along the way (notably Soap & Glory and Taaj), but nothing matches up to this L'Occitane offering.

Although I've tried a few of the scented versions, I always go back to the original. It's quite a unique scent, which my bestie Emily described as being "like a baby's head", but is actually a combination of the main ingredients - shea butter, honey, almonds and coconut oil. Now, individually these are all pretty moisturising components, so together they manage to leave my hands feeling incredibly soft. Plus, there's no tackiness after applying - it sinks straight in to my hands. This L'Occitane offering will get you through the Winter months (although I use it all year round), and dare I say it - it's a HG product for me. Feel free to bring me back ups, Santa.

  3. This is seriously the best hand moisturizer ever, its great cause it doesn't have an overpowering scent so I can apply it during class. Great post Josie :)

  4. This sounds like a great cream - I love a good tube package as well.


Thank you for all of your comments - I read and appreciate every one :)
