Worth the Splurge? L’Occitane hand cream in Shea butter review

 I am no different from anyone else, when I see a much talked about product that would work for me. I need to try it for myself. Click down below to see what I think of this much love hand cream brand.

What it promises: 

One of our best-selling Shea Butter Hand Creams is sold every three seconds around the world!
Enriched with 20% Shea Butter, this super-creamy balm penetrates quickly to protect, nourish and moisturize hands. Honey, almond extracts and coconut oil are blended with Shea Butter to create this extremely effective formula. The rich texture leaves hands soft and smooth with no oily traces, and can be applied as often as needed.
Considered a “beauty must-have” by many, this “life-changing” hand cream is essential for home, work and on-the-go.

What I Found:

I bought this hand cream back in December at Sephora used it a few times before it was proptly forgotten about. With fall coming and my every other week love affair with aceatone soaks(Gel manicures), my hands were becoming dry. That’s also has to do with I havent used a hand cream in weeks.

I taken up a habbit of applying this lotion in the morning when I’m done applying my makeup. On class days during every other class. Then once at night before bed. I’ve done this for a little over three weeks. My skin around my hands are moisturized enough. They’re not silky smooth but have less cracks. Or hangnails. There is still some roughness around my nail beds.


  • Moisturzes my hands
  • Keeps cracks away. 
  • Has a nice thick consistency 


  • The smell, it’s horendous. Its a powdery floral scent. It’s odd and I never smelt something like that before. 
  • The smell aside I honestly didn’t notice anything special about it. Works as well as neutrogena’s hand cream
  • Price it’s $12 a tube, It does last a long time though!!

VERDICT: I do like this hand cream, it does work. I just can’t get past the smell! It’s terrible!! I do want to try it in another scent. I do have to say I don’t find this hand cream anything more than a run of the mill hand cream. Maybe Sells for $12 at Sephora and online.
