Review: L'Occitane Marvellous Flowers Hand Cream.

L'Occitane Marvellous Flowers Hand Cream♦ (£8)
Christmas is fast approaching and I'm constantly on the lookout for things that will make perfect gifts. There are two main collections from L'Occitane this Christmas; Magical leaves which is a blend of verbena, hazel, citrus & vanilla and Marvellous Flowers which is a lovely & feminine mixture of rose, peony and berries. There are also a whole range of different gift sets, so if someone in your life loves L'Occitane, I would have a little look around the website!

The L'Occitane hand creams are one of those classic, almost cult products and when I think of L'Occitane as a whole brand, it's always the hand creams that come to mind first! Part of one of the main Christmas collections, this Marvellous Flowers Hand Cream smells just as divine as it sounds. L'Occitane are wonderful at blending beautiful notes resulting in scents that are pretty but not too overpowering or too much. This scent is soft, delicate and floral with a touch of sharp fruitness from the berry notes. It's really beautiful and perfect for the cooler months.

As you would expect, this hand cream is wonderfully moisturising, enriched with shea butter and a lovely treat for the hands. I've forgotten my gloves one too many times this winter already and my hands hadn't been looking their best after one too many encounters with the biting wind, but even after one use, my hands felt soothed, nourished and much softer.

I'm putting together a little pamper basket for my Mama and I'll definitely be purchasing a tube of this to go in it! The packaging of these hand creams is my favourite of any hand cream I've tried before, the metal tube is easy to roll up once you start nearing the end, so you can be sure that you're getting every last bit out & you'll want to with a product that is this luxurious! At £8 for 30ml these make lovely little individual gifts & would be perfect as a stocking filler or as part of a larger present!

Are you a L'Occitane fan?
Have you ever tried their hand creams before?

  4. I'm a massive fan, haha. I've just bought the Almond Gift set and have totally fallen in love with the whole range. I've tried quite a few of their hand creams (my favourite being a violet scented one which was absolutely gorgeous) but I do really rate their shea butter hand cream xx

  7. Sounds lovely, I loved the L'Occitaine hand cream I got in Marie Claire but didn't like the rose scent! I would definitely consider buying a full size one since I have perpetually dry hands.
