I use this cream before going to bed about twice a week, and it makes such a difference! My hands are soft and look healthy. Once the winter kicks in, I'll be using it more often to prevent cracking, which my hands tend to do from the cold air. I do think this cream is really expensive, but it's the only one that works for me, so I see it as an investment. Plus, it lasts a long time since a dab will do the trick nicely.

Got a small samples-size on flights to Malaysia. Love it. Very handy for handbag. Smell can be overpowering though.

There are a large variety of hand creams on the market. Which one to purchase? What makes them stand out? One of the things I appreciated about the packaging for this product was the fact that it contained all the necessary information on the back [sometimes products can claim to be the "end all of solutions" but lack the necessary facts to back up their claim]. Luckily L'Occitane did an excellent job of informing me, the customer, why this hand cream is one of the better hand creams on the market.

It also didn't help their Sales Associate was on hand to gush about the product, and inform me it's the number one selling product in their store, and for the company world wide.

As a guy [don't ask why I'm on this website, it's a long story] I have to wash my hands a lot. So they get very cracked and so forth. Shea is a good source of healing dry and dehydrated skin. So this product contains the necessary amount of Shea butter and is specifically formulated for dry hands. 25% Shea Butter is very nourishing.

The only reason that stops this great product from getting a perfect score- is the price. Yikes! It's expensive. Whenever I shop in L'Occitane, the price of my overall purchase always adds up pretty fast! Also, it does leave a greasy texture after the application that takes a while to go away. So if your not careful, you'll leave finger prints and paw marks everywhere.

Other then that, it's a great product!

Unfortunately this doesn't work for me. My hands are a normal sort of dry, they aren't cracked or peeling and don't require anything heavy duty - which is fortunate because for me this is completely ineffective at doing anything!
It feels nice and rich to apply, though takes a while to absorb (I would overlook that in a cream that worked).
I was hoping for something that would make my hands feel soft and moisturised - this hasn't changed a thing to be honest. I wish I could experience what it is everyone is raving about but this is truthfully the most useless hand cream I've used.

I love, love, love this hand cream. My hands have a tendency to be dry (I wash them constantly) and this stuff works wonders. I have tried so many other lotions, creams, etc. and this is the only one that I really like. I did subtract one lippie because it leaves a bit of an oily residue after application. It is really expensive for hand cream, therefore I only use it when absolutely necessary.

I actually like this very rich and lush cream for my hands. It is dead expensive for a hand cream but long lasting and it smells nice and keeps your hand moisterized. So probably one of the best hand creams on the market. Now I have to figure out where to buy it as I can't in my country and usually buy it online.

l'occitane always seems to get it right... this is my absolute favorite hand cream on the market. the scent is fresh and not super "perfumy," it absorbs well into your skin, and the packaging is fantastic. i will always re-purchase this hand cream, it's really to die for.

Nice product. Moisturizes and makes hands much softer. I didn't really like the smell, but I can take that. Will probably repurchase.

Best hand cream ever! My 40something hands were beginning to get that dried out old lady look. I got a travel size tube of this on a whim while in France. Unbeleivable difference!! The toughened skin I had from carrying shopping bags just softened and disappeared within a week! My hands look lovely. Moist and eventoned. No greasy sensation, just soaks in within seconds. I am so impressed I even tried it on my face - just soaks right in and makes me glow. I will buy this til I die. HG

I love how moisturizing this stuff is, but I can't handle the old lady perfume smell, yuck! Tho, I don't like most perfumes, so I suggest getting a sample to see if you like the smell or not. Good cream otherwise.
