With the announcement that Punxsutawney Phil had declared six more weeks of winter on February 2, I felt a chill pass through my body… and my hands cringed. Whether you are dealing with the blasts of arctic air that hit North Texas or a frigid winter like many of my friends and family have had to endure in the Northeast, our skin can only take so much COLD air. We soak in our bath salts and we cover our bodies head to toe with creams and lotions, but our hands – they have to go through the rigorous ordeal of constant hand washing to keep those pesky germs at bay as well.
Each winter I am in constant search for a hand cream that goes on smoothly, is thick in consistency and won’t make my hands feel greasy. I think I have found it in L’Occitane en Provence Hand Cream.
Speaking with Jack, a beauty advisor at Sephora about this hand cream, he shared “L’Occitane hand cream contains 20% shea butter and was a winner of Allure magazine’s ‘Best of Beauty’ award for Best Hand Cream in 2013”. Say no more, Jack. I had to try it!
L’Occitane is not only creamy, but moisturizing, luxurious, and fast absorbing. It does everything you would ever want in a hand cream and literally melts into your skin like butter. I am using the blue tube which offers little to no fragrance, but there are others in this line that contain the sweet scent of orange blossoms, ripe cherries, or bouquets of peonies just to name a few. Each formula is fragrant with a delightful scent that you’ll love to wear. I really think it’s the best hand cream ever.
So just take that soft, silky hand and wave hello to Phil. Spring is on its way and your hands are ‘covered’ till it arrives.
