L'Occitane Shea Vanilla Bouquet Hand Cream Review

A good hand cream is an essential in the colder months, to try and keep our hands soft, supple and looking good. The richer ones will have to include different moisturising butters, and as this promised to contain 20% Shea butter I was curious to try it out. Likewise,vanilla scent is one of my favourites but it can be really hard to come across one that isn't too overpowering in a product. 

While the butter helps to soften the hands, the coconut oil, and various other plant extracts create a barrier to protect the skin from the different elements and make sure long lasting moisture is provided. I spend a lot of time outside so any cream that manages to keep my hands moisturised all day is good! Once applied, the vanilla scent is very slight and disappears quite soon (sadly :( ).

I don't need to use much as the consistency is quite thick but it still manages to absorb quickly not leaving any residue. The tube is only 30ml, but I think it will last a long time as only a bit is needed each time.

I actually got this cream on an offer for only £1, but it is currently sold on their website for a more expensive £8.  Overall I think the ingredients do justify the price, as they are good quality and the hand cream works wonders!



  1. I like this brand.
    honestly, does any scent on ANYTHING ever stay very long? I really don't think so... I always use unscented anyway, because I've got sensitive skin but when I did, I remember the scent always fading after a bit.

    1. yes, you're right! I really liked the scent thought, so I would have loved if it stayed for a bit longer! xx
