New Shea Butter Intensive Hand Balm


New Shea Butter Intensive Hand Balm1.jpgL’Occitane first became known stateside for its amazing hand cream which was made up of 20% Shea Butter. It’s greasy but it works.

But still, if that wasn’t moisturizing enough for you, know there’s a Shea Butter Intensive Hand Balm which has 25% Shea Butter and it’s even more luxurious and moisturizing. It has a very rich feel and melts as you rub your hands together, and what’s great about it is that it forms a film over your hands so that they’re protected from dry heat or air conditioning. Cuticles are instantly smoothed down and your skin just feels softer and smoother. I rub it on every night before I go to bed, and its keeping my hands feeling comfortable even after I wash them.


New Shea Butter Intensive Hand BalmTip: Very dry hands? Remove the dry layer first. Treat yourself. Scrub your hands before you apply your handcreme. And see te result…. directly!

L’Occitane Intensive Hand Balm is availble in a handy 150 ml tube.




L’Occitane’s Hand Cream Confections set



With so many amazing gifts around at Christmas-time, it’s sometimes hard to find one that really gives you pause and makes you gasp, but that’s exactly the reaction I had when I saw L’Occitane’s Hand Cream Confections set.

This is a set of L’Occitane’s 5 best-selling hand creams in portable 30ml (1 oz) sizes. All the hand creams have 20% shea butter which makes them super moisturizing. The set includes the original Shea Butter Hand Cream which is so popular that it’s sold every 5 seconds worldwide. Also included are the Pivoine Flora (peony), Lavender, Orange Blossom, and Cherry Blossom scents of the cream.

The set would make a great gift to someone who either borrows hand cream from you all the time (we all have one of those friends), or someone who appreciates good skincare products. Think of gifting it to a friend who enjoys having their nails done and then takes good care of her hands. I know that hand cream is one product that I go through really quickly, so that makes this gift really perfect for me (wink)

The L’Occitane’s Hand Cream Confections set is available at L’Occitane and Sephora stores and online..
