L’Occitane Intensive Hand Balm

Hello beauties

Today I have L’occitane 25% Shea Butter Intensive Hand Balm, this has been out for a little while and I do like the original Shea butter hand cream, so I had to try it!

Intensive Hand Balm is a richer hand cream than the original, an extra 5% Shea in the formula and it has the same beautiful fragrance of Ylang Ylang. It’s warm and comforting and it’s such a pleasure to use at bedtime to help you relax and wind down.

I like this, but I do have a big gripe, it is VERY greasy. I don’t actually use this hand cream without wearing cotton gloves as you will get residue everywhere! It’s a bit too rich, I certainly couldn’t use this during the day. Yet it’s a great intensive treatment to use at night, the gloves help it sink into your skin.

I don’t think I would repurchase this, it is expensive too at £23.00 for 150ml. I know you don’t need to use much and the standard hand cream does last me a long time, Intensive Hand Balm is just too rich for me.

Till next time,

Lucy xxx
