L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand cream

My hands are something that I sometimes neglect, purely because I don't like having greasy, sticky hands. So, as a result of this I've been searching for a non greasy, moisturising hand cream for a while. And now I'm happy to say that I've found one!

I bought L'Occitane's mini hand cream because I liked the packaging and it was a good size to carry around in my handbag. It's a beautiful smelling mix of shea butter, honey, vitamin E and sweet almond extract, blended with jasmine and ylang-ylang essences.

What I love about this is that it's very moisturising, but sinks in straight away and doesn't leave any greasy residue. It's great for very dry, dehydrated hands, and also for not so dry hands. It quite amazing that a cream can be so moisturising, and also soak in so well, even when my hands aren't dry.

It comes in a cute little silver tube, which costs $14.95.

Would I buy it again? Definitely, it's my favorite hand cream.
