I love this stuff - love how it makes my hands feel and I really love the scent. I "discovered" this via a mini that came in a L'Occitane GWP and I was looking through all my travel and mini sizes for a hand cream to pack for a vacation. I grabbed this and immediately was smitten by how soft it make my hands (which take quite a beating) and with the appealing fragrance. I've since purchased the large sized tube of this. I'm not wild about the metal tube packaging (like "old school" toothpaste tubes) as I feel a lot of product gets left behind when the tube is almost empty but that's my only complaint.

I really wasn't a fan of this at all. It had a cheap old lady powdery smell to it that was strong and lingered. It also left my hands greasy because it would never fully absorb. I ended up having to wipe off the layer it left on my skin and in the end, it didn't even moisturize that well at all. Lovely packaging, though.

Pros:
- it works;
- it absorbs fast;
- Non-greasy, non-sticky, basically you do not feel it at all on your hands;
- love that it also comes in travel size;
- the packaging is perfect.

Cons:
- each time I accidentally touch my eyes with my hands (even hours later) my eyes burn badly. I have to wash everything off my face and this cream off my hands.

Won't repurchase. Do not recommend it to sensitive people.

I like a lot of this company's products but not this one. I do like the scent but for me, it's too greasy. The greasiness coupled with a non-pump packaging is a no-go.

It is rich and some might characterize as greasy, but if your hands are dry, that's all good. However, many handcreams do the same for less money. I like the packaging, but other MUAers are correct that a flip top on a travel moisturizer is more convenient.

Nice smell and packaging but this was too heavy for my skin. It left a greasy film. I think this might just be because of my skin type though as I see how popular it is with other people.
Much prefer the Almond range.

Much much better than the cherry blossom one. While the Cherry Blossom one smells amazing, this one does smell nice (like Shea butter/ vanilla), and it actually moisturizes my dry, cracked, winter hands really well. Definitely a repurchase. I just wish the top didn't fall to the floor when I attempt to put it back on. I wish it had a snap top or a top that was attached. This one is a thick cream, but the cherry blossom one is a thinner consistency that absorbs quickly and is best suited for use during summer/ warmer temperatures. This one is best for winter/ cold weather exposed skin.

Gorgeous packaging, leaves hand super soft and smells nice. Doesn't absorb that quickly but I guess that and being so nourishing is hard to accomplish at the same time. My favorite hand cream of all time.

This is the best hand cream ever. Thick and moisturizing, sinks into skin quickly, and has a nice non-overpowering smell which it fades quickly. By far this hand cream keeps my very dry hands moisturized longer than any other hand cream I've ever used.

Must have item to bring everyday in all my handbags.
