What a great aroma! I was captured by its smell immediately.Great moisturer for the body, my boyfriend who has much drier skin than me applies almost every night and loves it. The only problem is that it cannot be applied on the face as well cause the aroma is too intense for that purpose. A pity since you could have it like this as well. My skin is sensitive, normal to dry. Great for the hands especially in very cold winters. Really expensive cream compare to others with the same results like NIVEA (and this can be used on my face and body). Would buy it again if I find it cheaper and if I don't get obsessed with buying a new promising product.

The label is not kidding - it is ultra rich and feels absolutely luxurious! Heavy duty moisturizing. However it is too thick for my liking. I can't use this in the morning after taking a shower because it takes so long to work the stuff in. I feel a sticky residue all over me, which makes my clothes stick on me. But once the stuff has sunk in, my skin is SOFT. I like the smell too. I use this at night now when I go to bed. It works wonderfully overnight on my hands and feet with mitts and socks on. A bit too expensive, so I can't justify buying this again.

I love this cream. The one and only complaint that I have is the price. I usually don't care how much something costs as long as it works like I want it to- but I go through a jar of this in 2-3 weeks, no exaggeration. I don't want to spend over $40 (cost + shipping) every 2 weeks for body cream! But I love the smell, kind of like baby powder and a little like honey, IMO. And I love the consistency and moisturising ability. My skin stays smooth and moist all day.

I don't know, I just have to purchase this cream from time to time, and then I don't know what to do with it...It has a thick cream (but not greasy) consistency that is incredibly attractive to me...The consistency and the scent reminds me of some baby creams that my grandmother and grandfather always had for me when I was a baby and a little child... So, I suppose there are some very strong nostalgic reasons why am I so attracted to this body cream. A huge jar of a childhood memories... However, I hate to admit that this cream doesn't sink properly into the skin. I don't have the feel of an extra-good hydration either. Still makes the skin quite soft but leaves the annoying film on the top of the skin. Not my favorite style at all... The scent, as I said, reminds me of some good oldfashioned creams that my grandparents had for me while I was a child...just a simple, 'neutral', pleasant scent which i like; but I read in L'Occitane catalogue that it is 'the scent of African Rose' and I was quite surprised. It doesn't remind me of roses at all, but what would I know... The cream contains 25% od Shea Butter, extract of a natural honey, extract of almond seed and some other plants, apricot oil and vitamin E for antioxidant properties. I'm sorry to say that because this cream certainly has its charm, but I think that it is overpriced for what it does.

I received some samples of this and initially I was very pleased to use this as an overnight moisturizer - it feel rich and nourishing and smelled pleasant. But I found that the next morning, my skin was dry again, as if the moisturization only had initial effects. (I used this several days and always had this outcome). I get better results from drugstore body creams (Eucerin being my favorite) than I do with this, though drugstore brands may not smell as nice. Not worth my purchasing.

I, too, am surprised by the low rating for this product. I absolutely love and adore this body cream. I have severely dry skin, and this cream makes me forget that I do. It's best to apply it when you have the time to rub it in.. I put it on after I get out of the shower and rub & massage into my legs.. it doesn't leave my legs greasy, only moisturized and glowing.. and while I'm not particularly wild about the scent, I've recieved an innumerable amount of compliments and how lovely I smell after putting this on. Since I do have such dry skin and do have to apply it after every shower, the tub doesn't last me very long and so the price tag is a little steep for how often I have to repurchase... but I love this cream, and it is worth it!

I cannot believe this has such a low rating! This is my HG body cream and after trying many, I can say with certainty that I will never cheat on it again! I love that it is thick because I only need a little bit to cover my whole leg. It is slightly greasy and takes a bit to sink into my skin, but it doesn't bother me. It is so silky feeling on my skin....my skin feels silky for a long time when I use this. I don't have terribly dry skin so I can't speak to what it does for very dry skin. I mostly use it on my legs after shaving and it feels sooooo good. It alleviates some of the irritation I get from shaving. I also use it after a bikini wax and it provides a nice layer so I can get dressed comfortably. :) I will repurchase again and again.

I love the smell of this. I have been using this on my elbows and hands for a couple of years now and at age 37 my hands are soft with no wrinkles or age spots. The L'occitane hand cream is a bit to sticky for my liking. I enjoy this product for elbows knees hands feet. I use the matching sent body lotion foe the rest of my body right out of the shower. I am so finicky and try it all but I am definatly sticking with L'ooctane body products.

I was looking for something rich for my very dry skin and this seems to work so far no need for 'touch-up'in the afternoon after the morning routine.

It's, however, greasy and it doesn't soak into my skin right away. It takes a few good rubbing to soak into my skin when I first apply it. But so far it works for my flaky matter.

It's just OK nothing to wow about

Not sure if I would like it during warmer or Summer weather but this should do for winter time.

I like the smell and it is not that strong to worry about if I wear perfume on top.

Try it out first before you purchase it.

This is an OK creme. It's thick and rich, but the moisture doesn't seem to last very long. My skin feels dry again after a few hours. I also prefer a moisturizer that leaves my skin with a little bit of a glow - this doesn't.
