I really wanted to love this cream -- I love the smell, the packaging (I think it's really luxe looking), and usually love l'occitane products. Anyway, the product itself does nothing for me... makes my hands tacky -- instead of feeling moisturized, the tackiness makes them feel dry and sticky... yuck. Anyway, I much prefer the Aveda hand relief. So, unfortunately, up for swap for my tubes of this :(
This is probably the most expensive hand cream I've ever bought, but it's worth it. There's no cream on earth that is as rich as this! I only need a tiny bit each time. I love the smell also. My only beef on this product is its metal packaging. As with many other L'Occitane products, a few squeezes make the tube look crumpled and beat-up. Otherwise, the product is amazing and makes my skin look and feel better, instantly! continued >>
The BEST hand cream. A must for everyone. Not greasy. Soaks right in and lasts all day.
A great hand cream. My favorite. The fragrance is clean and fresh. Well worth the price. A little goes a long way. Try it, you'll love it!
on am impulse I got the small size of this in the tempting baskets by checkout at Sephora. I am really glad I did. Probably the best handcream I've ever used. REally moist and creamy without being greasy. Sinks into my hands well, makes them feel soft as the proverbial baby bottom, and the moisture seems to hold in my hands better than most handcreams usually do. I like the scent, though wish they'd do a verbena version of this. LOVE it.
I love the cream. I love the texture and the scent. Some say it smells like an old lady, but I say it smells classic. i love that it soaks right in and is never greasy. Even after I wash my hands with tough dish soap, i can still feel and smell the cream on my hands. I am not fond of the screw top though, and not terribly fond of the price. That would not stop me from buying again though.
My friend gave this as a gift to me and I looovee it!! I love the smell cuz it reminds me of my childhood.. I used to have this body wash that smelled EXACTLY like this!! It really moisturized my hands but it could be a little sticky but it absorbs pretty fast... I would definitely buy again after it runs out cuz I love the smell and it comes in a tube so it's so easy to take everywhere!!
Tried this after using the Neutrogena Norwegian formula hand cream and it just comes no where near it in effectiveness. It is so much more expensive and I was disappointed overall. It is quite greasy and I find myself applying small amounts to aid quick absorbency. The only problem is that I have to repeat the application until I'm satisfied that my hands are feeling soft and smooth. Then at first handwash, it is all over and a reapplication is required. My hands never seem to benefit beyond about one hour from this cream. The fragrance is really nice, a soft, talcy scent but this is the only positive feature of this handcream. I also dislike the fiddly little screw cap on the tube. I would not recommend this product and will not be buying it again.
One of the best hand creams I've ever used. It just makes my hands feel more hydrated than most creams, without being sticky or greasy. I happen to like the scent, although I'll admit it is strong. I get the small tubes (ridiculously overpriced at $8 for 1 ounce) because the full-sized tube just looks unwieldy. Anyway, I have been using this in conjuntion with L'Occitane's Nail and Cuticle Cream (even more ridiculous at $15 for half an ounce), and I have to say my hands are lookin and feelin good.
