L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Creams Soiree
Will You Part With Any One of These?
L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Creams Soiree ($65.00 for 10 oz.) contains 10 one-ounce hand creams in a variety of scents. There are two regular Shea Butters, then one each of: Shea Date Bouquet, Lavender, Cherry Blossom, Rose 4 Reines, Fleur Cherie, Shea Mango Flower, Pivoine Flora, and Shea Rose Petals. The set also includes two gift bags–perfectly for breaking up the set and sharing the love with friends and family.
One of my favorite aspects of L’Occitane’s Hand Creams is how quickly they dry down. It’s one of the more important features of a hand cream that I’m always on the lookout for, because I want to apply it and then be able to resume doing whatever it is shortly after! Though it feels like a cream, so it has a thicker, heavier consistency, it dries down quickly and feels lightweight on and never greasy. The formula is effective and keeps my hands hydrated throughout the day.
I’ve only tried the regular, Date Bouquet, Lavender, and Mango Flower versions so far, but it’ll be fun to work through the rest of the scents. (I have used both the regular and Lavender versions previously.) The versions with 20% seem thicker and richer to me, very cream-like, while ones that aren’t marked with that seem a bit lighter weight and almost like a gel-cream hybrid in consistency.
When I saw this set, I thought it was adorable, and after seeing it in person, it absolutely is. It’s a great kit to receive for sure, but it would also work incredibly well as stocking stuffers. I love the 1 oz. size, because then I can stash these all over the house, in my bag, the car, and travel-friendly. You can purchase 1 oz. tubes of several of these versions separately, and those retail for $10 a pop, so the kit contains $100 worth of tubes (but they do offer larger sizes for some of the scents, too, and it is less-per-ounce with the larger sizes).
