Whilst on my trip to Chester, I spent roughly 2 of my 2.5 free hours before flying in the makeup section at the airport (as you do!). I picked up at the cashier til, the travel size L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. Now, a bit of background on the oul hands….I do suffer from eczema on occasion so when buying creams and lotions, its pretty hit and miss. This, my friend, is a hit!
Their website says it is “A super-smoothing–and best-selling–synergy of 20% Shea Butter, honey and sweet almond extract, blended with the light and alluring aromas of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences.” Now, I have no idea what ylang-ylang is, but whatever it is, its working. It is super absorbent and not greasy and just feels so moisturising.
I love the packaging too. Sleek and silver and can totally stand upright on the lid! Perfect for your desk (where mine lives) or your bedroom dresser
The smell is not overpowering and to be honest, just makes your hands smell creamy. I can’t get a distinctive aroma from it so I think its fairly middle of the road – you won’t hate the smell and you won’t love it!
The 30ml that I got was about €6.00 at the airport but it retails for €10.50 on their Irish website. The 150ml is €23.00 and totally worth it. The smaller one is just handier for the oul mála
