I've never tried out any L'Occitane products, so I was looking forward to trying out the L'Occitane Brightening Hand Care Cream and thought I would let you all know what I thought about it!
The packaging is no different to any other hand cream. A small, squeezy tube with a screw on lid, so nothing really to report there! It is handbag handy though, so that's always a plus!
It smells absolutely gorgeous. It's quite a clean smell. If you smell it straight from the tube, it seems quite strong, but once you apply the cream, it the smell softens and leaves quite a nice aroma around your hands.
The cream itself is very light and feels smooth and soft when you are blending it in. There is no stickiness or clamminess and it dries super quick so you don't end up with the residue over everything.
After using it, my hands felt soft and smooth all over, and combined with it's lovely smell, it was difficult to keep my hands away from my face all day.
One thing I do like about this hand cream is that it contains SPF20. As I have said before, it is important to wear SPF, even in the winter. If you wear and SPF foundation then your face is protected, even when you are wearing jumpers and coats, but if you aren't a glove wearer, then your hands will suffer, so it's great to find a hand cream that I like with a decent level of SPF!
Overall, I was impressed with the L'Occitane's cream and would recommend you try it out for yourself!
