This is an excellent hand cream. I hate using hand cream and usually have an urge to wash it off immediately (too greasy or sticky), but this sinks in quickly....its the only cream I can stand having on. The smell is pleasant but reminicent of cheap products....it doesn't smell expensive. The packaging sucks, as HeyJudes said, the metal tube is wasteful and its hard to get it all out of the tube. Its a little expensive, but its worth the price. It makes your hands very soft though and leaves no residue. I would definitly repurchase.

One of my favorite gifts. I use the hand cream also for my feet as I can't see the merits of buy a cream for each body part. (-: It works very well on cracked heels. Dab some on at night and then put on a sock to keep it from rubbing off. Seems to work like magic for me.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this hand cream. It really moisturizes the hands. At first it goes on kind of heavy and seems like it's going to be greasy, but it really absorbs nicely and has a really nice finish. I also adore the scent. My absolute favorite hand cream ever and I work at a C.O. Bigelow which sells a large assortment of hand creams so that's saying a lot.

I'm NOT in love with the price but I think this hand cream is worth it. And I'm NOT in love with the packaging. The metal tubing seems wasteful since I can't get every little bit of the cream out...it's pretty though and I guess it's L'Occitane's signature packaging.

This stuff is the bees knees of hand cream! It makes my hands soo soft! And the smell!...Good enough to eat!Mmm! I gave this product a 4 for price because I got a really good deal on EBAY! The tube lasts forever, so I gave it the highest packaging rating because you can roll it up as you use it without wasting a drop! I highly recommend this to anyone! c",)
UPDATE>This is undoubtabley my HG hand cream!I have not been able to find a nicer hand cream out there!Believe me Ive searched!

I have gone through many tubes of this product. My fave part of this is the scent. I wish they sold it in a bottle. It is so fresh and clean. The texture is a bit greasy, but it does moisturize.

I love this stuff! Leaves my hand very moisturised and silky smooth but the texture is a bit too thick and may be greasy on initial application. It gets absorbed easily but not as fast as I'd like (C&E does a better job), but it is great to use as an intensive hand treatment at night.

Love the smell, love the after-feel, but sorry, one lippie off for the packaging. The squeeze tube is inconvenient and irritating. I always end up squeezing out too much of product even though Im already as gentle as possible.

I am very satisfied with this. I got 3 in the Hands Best Friend kit from Sephora. I don't have seriously dry hands but I still like it. I put it on every night before bed. I do find it a bit greasy when it goes on, but that goes away in about 20 seconds or so so it's not really bothersome. I think it goes on nice though, not hard to spread all over your hands and it's defintely a nice product. I would recommend this to friends-- especially as this kit was inexpensive.

I wanted to buy the open-up-to-shea set from sephora for my friend. I went to try it on today at sephora, during the 25 minute there, I put on shea butter hand cream, 100% pure shea, those two are sticky as hell, doesn't aborb at all, and since I'm holding shopping back (plastic), the paint of plastic bag gets on my hand and melted to my sleeves. Yak!!!. also, I only felt greasy and not moisturizing and the worst part is the smell. I don't know what parfum is in there, but I'm ALLERGIC to it, I didn't even put it on my face, just by putting on the back of my hands and smelling it, I developed a rash, my face is itchy and start having tiny bumps, I felt like constantly scrabbing my face and I felt really burning up. just from the smell!
glad I tried this first, I'm walking away from l'occitane from now on and I would get as far away from the scent as possible.
one note here, I'm sensitive to smells, some perfumes make me sneeze and some make me flare up and rash is common. so this is heavy perfumed product, and sensitive people, it's not for you.

This is the best hand cream I have yet to try. I love the smaller tubes so I can tuck it into my bag. This stuff is not greasy, absorbs readily and delivers results. While the price is not totally outrageous, my friends who swear by drugstore stuff think I am nuts spending double digits on hand cream!
