This hand cream smells great. I don't find it moisturizes very well though. In our harsh Canadian winter I need something that protect my hands better. I find this cream can get a big greasy. It is also very expensive. Don't know if I would buy it again. I find that the Cliniderm hand cream is much better in protecting my hands.
Great for winter! Apply it before you sleep. Really moisture the hands and greatly reduce fine lines on it.
uuhhh after watching a show on QVC i was so convinced this is what i needed. I got this one finally and was so dissappointed. I like the smell , but i feel it does not soak into my skin at all. It washes easily off with plain water and hands feel quite dry after that!! my hands feel good when its just applied tho. But feels dry in a little bit. would not re purchase this again !
This stuff is amazing!! After using it my palms feel like velvet. It is readily absorbed & has a pleasant smell. Also at 40 the tops of my hands are starting to show a bit of age & after using this product for only one week I feel that my hands look younger.
Some complain about the price but I disagree, this is a cream not a lotion & you don't use much at all so it will last a long time. Either way the results from this hand cream are worth the price. The toothpaste-like packaging is fine by me. Having it in a tube takes up less space & it is easy to drop in your purse (especially the 1oz tube).
I can't praise this stuff enough. It is by far the best hand product I have ever used.
I would much rather shell out cash for the Aveda for a hand cream for my purse. This stuff feels good going on your hands . . . and then you need more 1/2 hour later.
This cream didn't do anything special for my hands besides sitting there on top of my skin. Actually, most products with a high content of shea butter don't agree with my skin (foot cream from the same line is great but it has less shea).
Anyway, price is quite steep but it lasts a long time so in a long run it doesn't really cost that much.
Cant live without this......fantastic as a intensive night treatment!
I got this free. I am not crazy about the smell.
One day, I went to an African store and I bought tons of Shea butter for $2.
Since then, for me in my mind, L'Occitane is ripe off.
Anyways, the store I went, the clerk was so snobbish and that is why I guess, I don't like L'Occitane.
It is not worth buying, but as a gift, L'Occitane is nice.
I bought the big tube of this in Paris a few months back after trying a sample...I love it! Love the scent, the feel of it. My hands get a bit dry, not too much, in the winter time and this works great.
I just bought a small travel-sized tube of this from Sephora for $8. I thought even if it wasn't the greatest, I could still keep it in my purse and eventually use it up. Well, I do like it! The texture is nice, rich, kind of thick, but still spreads quite easily. It isn't sticky, greasy, or filmy at all. The initial scent is very feminine and soft, but after it has been on for awhile, I can smell the actual *butter*, which is not the greatest scent in the world to me, but is still tolerable enough to continue using. :-) I would give this a higher rating if it moisturized my hands very well, but it's just a decent moisturizer. I have very dry hands, especially since I'm a compulsive hand-washer and use Purell anti-bacterial gel about 100x a day. The only thing that has actually cured my dry hands in less than 24 hours, is Curel original lotion. I thought this would blow Curel out of the water, but it hasn't yet. Granted, I do use a tiny amount, so I'll use more and update again later if the results are better. I will say that it does hold up after 1-2 hand washings by keeping my hands soft. Overall, it's a good hand cream and the packaging is just lovely! It's a huge reason as to why I bought it. :-) I like the old-fashioned look of the tin tube (especially the small travel sized one that I bought).
