This is a fabulous hand cream. Silky application and absorbs quickly. No greasy film afterwords. Great for dry cuticles. The price just kills me, so I ask for this as a birthday or Christmas gift. No odd odor. Great for winter time.

This is by far my favourite hand cream ever. I'm sad that it costs so much, but I guess it's okay because it really does wonders for dry cracked winter hands because it's so thick. The smell can be a bit overwhelming for some I've noticed, so I try not to use it in public. I usually take some on right before I go to sleep. Very big con is the packaging, it cracks easily and gets several holes in it, so when you squeeze it, cream tends to come out from all over haha!

This is arguably L’Occitanes most famous product. It is a cult favourite and I believe it does live up to its hype. It is a very thick hand cream, with a creamy and balmy texture. A little goes a long way and it melts into the skin beautifully. It absorbs easily and doesn’t leave my hands feeling sticky or greasy. It has a very thick and creamy texture which I love, it feels nice and luxurious. It is quite pricey, $44AUD for 150ml but it does it’s job well, and as so little is needed each use the tube will last a very long time! It has a very nice, natural scent - smelling of Shea Butter and a pinch of honey. If you prefer more heavily scented or perfumed products this product may not be for you. I use this every night before bed and carry a small one in my handbag. I have many friends of all ages who all love this product. I have very sensitive palms and this doesn’t trigger any itchiness, redness, dryness or irritation which is a huge plus. I will definitely be repurchasing this!

I actually like the packaging- it's unique and looks nice. I like that it's opaque and protects the ingredients. But I can't stand the smell! Too bad, because I liked the idea of shea cream in the hand lotion, mixed with other beneficial ingredients. But something about the smell reminds me of changing a baby's diaper.... something I don't really want in a lotion. Reading the reviews just now, I find it really interesting how each of us is so unique- some people love the smell and others don't like it. Wish I could give my tube to someone who had enjoyed it. I personally would not buy again.

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.

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.

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.

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.
