L'Occitane Hand Cream Trio

L'Occitane Hand Cream
L-R Shea Butter Dry Skin Hand Cream, Cherry Blossom Hand Cream & Pivoine Flora Hand Cream.

L'Occitane hand creams are fail safe, you really can't go wrong with them. The 'travel size' tubes are 30ml which is the perfect size to slip into my handbag and I usually keep one by my bedside, one in the bathroom and one in my handbag.

The creams are rich and leave my hands incredibly soft without a greasy residue. They all contain different natural extracts and scents which are not at all overpowering. 
The packaging is cute and practical, its very easy to get every last scrap of cream out of the tubes and they tend to last me quite a while as I don't need much for each application. 

L'Occitane Hand Cream Pivoine Flora

Contained in my trio were the original Shea butter dry skin cream, the Pivoine Flora hand cream and the Cherry Blossom scented cream. 

The Original hand cream with Shea butter is full of anti-oxidants and vitamin E to slow signs of ageing and sweet almond oil to smooth the skin. When my hands are feeling particularly dry I stick with the Original as it is very effective at sorting out my winter beaten mitts.

Peonies are my favourite flowers in all existence so naturally I can't help but love the Pivoine Flora cream, it too is enriched with Shea butter, bringing the same rich nourishment as the original hand cream. My favourite scent has to be the Peony too, as it is subtle and fresh.
 I think the Cherry Blossom cream is the most delicate of the 3, it has a light texture and scent but is still packed full of Shea butter to combat dry hands. 

L'Occitane Hand Cream

Not all of the creams have the same texture or are equally moisturising. From top-bottom: Shea Butter, Cherry Blossom & Pivoine Flora. As you can probably tell from the consistency, the Shea butter is the most intensively moisturising with the other two coming in at a close second. The consistency of the Cherry Blossom and Pivoine Flora creams are  quite gel-like which helps the cream settle into the skin.   They all smell fantastic and would beat out my all time favourite Hand Food if L'Occitane were a little more purse-friendly. 

A similar hand cream trio is available from L'Occitane here or individually for £8 each.
