L'Occitane Almond Smooth Hands

Description

Formulated with softening almond milk and smoothing almond proteins, this light hand cream instantly helps to moisturize and beautify the skin on hands, while leaving delicate notes of almond tree flowers. The almond nut, which grows protected in a beautifully soft and green velvet shell, is renowned for its ability to soften and smooth the skin. L'Occitane is committed to purchasing almonds from producers in the South of France so that the almond tree, which had long been forgotten in the region, once again becomes a familiar element in the Provençal landscape.
- Key Benefits:
• Enveloping hands with the subtle and mouthwatering scent of fresh almonds
• Our non-greasy formula has a creamy texture, perfect for hydrating hands throughout the day
• The almond nut, which grows protected in a beautifully soft and green velvet shell, is renowned for its ability to soften and smooth the skin

Directions

To use, massage a small knob of cream into hands as often as necessary. Apply as many times as needed on the hands during the day.

Almond Cream

User Reviews

Strongest points
+ Long lasting sweet almond scent
+ Soft skin
+ Absorbs quickly
Weakest points
- Light texture
- Not enough moisture
Summary
I got two of these on an offer, just mini size and three of the shea butter hand cream. I prefer the shea one, because that one gives a lot of moisture to the skin compare to this one. Also this cream is lighter in texture. The smell is amazing. reminds me to my childhood.

Marzipan hands

Nice handcream if you can find it on sale but high price at full RRP and I would not pay that much for it as there are others that do just as good a job for less money

User Reviews

Strongest points
Smells fresh and gently of almond - not really marzipan . Quickly absorbed and leaves hands soft and not at all greasy
Weakest points
Expensive and not as natural as they claim
Summary
A nice hand cream with natural ingredients but not all natural. Smells nice and freshly almondy.The squeazy tube works well and the cream comes out freely. Cream is quite liquid not buttery at all but it is a cream and it is very quickly absorbed by the skin.

Pleasant fragrance

User Reviews

Strongest points
Good fragrance, good company ethics, handy sized tube which stands on its cap for storage, widely available.
Weakest points
A little expensive, metal tube.
Summary
This product comes in a handy sized tube that is very portable. It can be stored on its cap which is space saving. The metal tubing is a concern for me, as this may be easily damaged if carried around a lot. The cream is hydrating the fragrance pleasant. The price is slightly expensive for a hand cream.

Summary
I absolutely adore this hand cream, it leaves hands feeling so soft and smooth.
I use this after housework as my hands get dry, cracked and sore.
The scent is really delightful and gentle.
A wonderful thick consistency that massages really well into the hands leaving them feeling soft, supple and deeply moisturised.
