It’s icy cold outside now and as a result my knuckles and the folds of my fingers are dry and cracked with cuts. I can’t be the only one with this problem SSSSOOOOO I have the lotion that will solve our problems!!!
It’s the L’Occitane Creme Mains Peaux Seches Dry Skin Hand Creme. In my picture it’s a sample size of the lotion which is why it’s so small. The packaging is different from the link because I have the holiday themed one and I had trouble finding that one but I found it in a gift set linked at the end.
Here’s a pic of the product inside
Do you see that? The product inside is thick! It’s not runny at all. I never thought I’d say this but, I love it! It’s like squeezing acrylic paint out from its tube!
Immediately when applying it on my hands, my hands instantly became smooth like a silky material rather than sandpaper. It melted onto my hands as I easily glided it on with my fingers. It’s like Wood after I shaved it down with the sandpaper lol. I’m not exaggerating you guys my hands really are bad 😭 so bad that they’re comparable to sandpaper and wood 😭
There’s one thing I’ve always wanted in a lotion. I don’t want to have to reapply a whole other layer of lotion after washing my hands. I’m guessing because of how thick the product is (and the ingredients lol) it helps in keeping my hands moisturized longer. Usually after washing off some lotions, my hands go back to being cracked and feeling even more dry. This one (at least for me) I washed my hands, took a shower, woke up the next morning, and my hands still felt smooth and hydrated! I haven’t experienced this with any other lotions.
The smells aren’t anything to rave about in the three they offer. I try not to let the smell bother me because of how much I enjoy the product. The one I have is the regular Shea butter smell. Other smells are Wonderful Rose and Delightful Tea. Out of the three, my favorite was Wonderful Rose. The rose smell was refreshing and like a light perfume. They just didn’t have it in the sample size the set came with. The Delightful Tea smells like medicine. It might just be me so you’d have to smell them yourself to see what you like 😄
This lotion truly is a dry hand savior! On top of all of this, they’d be a great stocking stuffer 😏 here’s a link to the little Gift Set
I know that L’Occitane can be expensive for most people (including me) so another great lotion for those dried hands and the rest of your body is the Jergens Nourishing Honey lotion found in drug stores. If you want to read what I have to say about it click the link Dried Out Anyway, I love this lotion just as much. It’s a great price and is a good alternative but there is one tiny tiny flaw and that is it doesn’t stay on as long as the L’Occitane. I think this L’Occitane one has won me over for now.
Even if you wouldn’t want this exact lotion, I highly recommend L’Occitane products to help with the dryness you might be experiencing from your face to feet.
If you have any lotion knowledge I’d love to hear about it 😄 What’s your favorite lotion you’re using right now?
Thanks for reading! I hope to see you again! I’d love to read any comments you have or leave a like if you enjoyed!
