Customer Reviews

Review 1:

This is the best, richest hand cream I've ever used hands down. First of all the scent is positively delicious. You only need a little bit of this cause it goes a long way. My hands were very dry, chapped, and my cuticles were tearing. This takes care of all those problems. You have to wait a minute for the cream to sink in. I usually use this at night before I go to sleep and I wake up with super silky skin. I highly recommend this product for people with very dry hands. I will always use this product and highly recommend this line to everyone. It's addicting.

Review 2:
This product has no scent and is very good. It absorbs quickly and does not leave a greasy layer behind. My hands get super dry in the winter and this is the only thing that works for me. Along with the 100% shea butter product these are the best products around. The 100% shea is stronger and I use it for my cuticles. This cream 24 hour and I re-apply at night. I also use it when my legs get really dry in the winter.

Review 3:
I have to say, you will REGRET if you don't buy this! Before using l'occitaine, I was just miserable with my dry skin.
I used a lot of brands, Lancome, Shiseido, Estee Lauder. None of them worked for me. Until I found l'occitaine in Sephora, everthing changed for my skin. I bought the face cream and tried it. I washed my face and applied some cream. A week later,
everyone was commenting on the good condition my skin was in. L'occitaine is like my savior.
And now I use the hand cream, body lotion, everything works AMAZINGLY!

one thing I would suggest though, go to a local store and try l'occitaine first, I know some people dont like the smell of it (its very soft though)
but this is an amazing product...

Review 4:
I love this hand cream! I have a terrible problem with dry, cracked knuckles in the wintertime. This cream gave my hands a "silky" feel without being greasy. (I'm a secretary, and I don't want to leave oily marks on papers.) I will definitely make sure I always have a tube of L'Occitane available.

Review 5:
I've heard wonderful things about this hand cream for a long time and finally decided to give it a try. I can't believe it. My dry hands are smooth and soft after only one application several hours ago. I'm sold.

Review 6:
It seems as though I've tried every hand cream out there. This one is the best. It isn't greasy - rather, it's softening. It doesn't smell like roses that won't quit - rather is smells like a field of spring blossoms that disappear in a heartbeat.

This handcream softens my psoriatic skin and makes it comfortable once again. Its moisturizing properties last from day to day and provide a degree of elasticity that I haven't known for years. If you have dry, cracked, irritated skin, this handcream and a pair of white cotton gloves will work miracles overnight. 

Review 7:
I wash my hands numerous times per hour -- not per day but each hour -- and use Purel hand sanitizer, and my skin had gotten sandpapery rough and cracked (1/8-inch to 1/4-inch painful fissures). This cream is the one that fixed my skin.
I am a big fan of a bargain and I've tried Neutrogena Norwegian formula, Vaseline Intensive Care, Jergens, Curel, Lubriderm, Eucerin, Aveeno and other common brands, but none of them quite did the trick as well.
Pros of the L'Occitane cream:
1. Moisturizes super effectively.
2. Absorbs well without lots of greasiness.
3. Fragrance pleasant and not too strong.
1. Price, price price!
2. Lack of UV protection.
3. Fragrance -- if you don't like it.

The only other hand cream that worked about as well was Ahava (also a gift and also very expensive).
Ahava may be a good luxury alternative for people who don't care for the fragrance of L'Occitane's shea butter hand cream (although I happen to LOVE it.)
If this is too expensive, then alternatives worth trying: Eucerin Calming Cream (which I think is also fragrance free and comes in a nice, large tube) is pretty rich, and Neutrogena Norwegian Formula (also greasier but available in fragrance free version) or Norwegian Formula FAST ABSORBING Hand Cream also work pretty well. Just use more of them more often.

Review 8:
This hand creme is the best! It works on the most driest skin in the world! I use it on my legs when they are really dry, especially during the summer. It is thick, but goes on smooth and has a real fresh scent. A little bit goes a long way. So, it takes a long time to use it up. This product is well worth the money. I find it to be the best lotion out there hands down, and I have tried everything.

Review 9:
There are certain products that I use, that I wouldn't change for the world. This is one of them. It is super-moisturizing, absorbs into the skin quickly and smells really yummy. Try the foot cream, it's wonderful as well.

Review 10:
I have used numerous hand creams - Avon, Eucerin, Neutrogena, Cetaphil. But, on a recent trip to a big city (I live in a rural area), I walked into a L'Occitane store in a mall and the clerk asked if I wanted to try the hand cream. I agreed and was impressed right away. The smell is light and pleasant, not overpowering and flowery. The cream absorbs into the skin quickly, but still provides lasting protection. I've been using the cream 3 times a day for a week, and my hands are as soft as my 2-year-old daughter's hands. I can't believe the change.

I felt a little guilty at first spending $21 on a tube of hand cream, but I know I'll use every last drop and the tube will last a long time.
