I purchased a travel size tube of this from Sephora to keep in my purse during the day. For a hand cream, this is expensive! It smells great and keeps my hands very soft and moisturized. It sinks right in and doesn’t make my hands super greasy.

I like to use this during the day and my Neutrogena hand cream at night.

As I said, it’s expensive! I think I purchased this as an add on to get free shipping or a free gwp. It ended up being worth it, because I do enjoy using this!

I'm a huge hand cream person due to my dry hands, literally all four seasons. So I've tried out countless hand creams, but this one's gotta be the best one. Doesn't smell great or anything compared to other L'Occitane products and other hand creams, but it just smells like shea butter. It'd be great if it smells better, but I also notice hand creams that come with a pleasing scent isn't as moisturizing, which is the whole point of a hand cream. This hand cream does the best job at moisturizing and KEEPING it moisturized until the next time you wash your hands. Especially with the cold weather lately, I find this hand cream a NECESSITY. I have several in travel sizes and the original full- sized one!

Let me tell you a little something about this lotion. It’s super gentle on your hands and not greasy at all. Sinks straight into your skin. I have eczema and so it’s super difficult to find lotions that work for me but this one does! Even the scented ones don’t irritate my skin. Provides instant relief. Would highly recommend!

This cream 10000000% saved my hands. I'm constantly washing my hands throughout the day and end up with super dry hands. Before trying this hand cream, the skin on my hands would always crack and bleed.

I use this every night before I go to sleep and now my hands are so so so soft and smooth. A little goes a long way so a small tube will last longer than you would expect.

I can't recommend it enough, it has been so worth it for me!!!

I purchase a lot of hand creams since my skin gets very dry but this has been a mainstay of mine for over 10 years. The classic one is my favorite but the almond and rose are also really nice. Definitely try it if your hands are prone to dryness in the winter. It really helps.

This is by far the best hand cream I've ever tried. Not only does it smell amazing, it moisturizes without leaving any kind of greasy residue. Also it doesn't completely leave your hands dry after you wash your hands! It is seriously worth every penny - a little goes a long way!

Impressed how it's rich and nourishing but not sticky. The formula sinks into my skin to hydrate and soften. I've purchased this for many many years. There are several scents of their hand creams that I've tried but I usually go back to this original one. A little goes a long way so the price is fine. This has a simple timeless tube design and it's compact to throw in a bag or a drawer. The shea butter scent isn't overwhelming and it doesn't last long which I appreciate. I'm fortunate that I have several L'Occitane boutiques in my area.

My favorite and only hand lotion I use! I hate when lotion takes a while to dry, but this product drys super quick and really works wonders for dry skin. I use it everyday. It may seem expensive for a small tube but trust me it's worth it! I definitely recommend it!

My favourite part about this product is that it absorbs quickly and leaves your hands feeling soft, smooth and most importantly non-greasy. If you're someone that is always using your hands you know that greasy creams take a while to absorb and your grip with things isn't so great. This cream lets you get back to what you were doing without leaving a greasy feeling on your hands.

A classic and for good reason! This is a great band cream - it is very hydrating and works well on cuticles as well! The scent is nice and fresh but not too overwhelming. I am going to purchase a whole set so I can keep one on my nightstand, at work, and in my bag!
