Hand Cream Reviews ♥

The first product I’m looking at is called Immortelle Brightening Hand Care by L’Occitane, (it has SP15 and is 75ml) and the packaging is very posh. You can say I’m easily pleased, but I really like the dark purple screw cap on the bottle! It’s quite hard to describe the smell when you first open it, but I would say it’s very floral and fresh. It’s quite subtle and that is perfect for me, because overpowering hand creams really aren’t my cup of tea. The lotion is non greasy and a pea sized amount is more than enough to cover one hand. After rubbing it in, I have to say, my hand looks lovely! It’s hard to describe, but the lotion creates a shimmer effect but without there being any glitter. It has a matte glow finish that really makes your hands smoother and even looking, without leaving it feeling sticky. I’m definitely carrying this in my bag from now on! Online it costs $30 and you can find the link here. 8.5/10

The second product I’m going to review is another hand care product, called Wild Rose Nourishing Hand Butter by The Body Shop. It’s 100ml, so it’s perfect to put in your bag when you’re rushing out the house. It’s only £10 so it’s great if you need to buy any presents this month! It’s in a circular container, which perfectly sized but I personally prefer tubes for my body and hand cream – I’m just too messy haha. The smell and the texture of the butter is what stands out for me, it smells absolutely gorgeous, I love the smell of roses. The texture of the butter is incredibly thin but instantly leaves your skin feeling moisturised. I wouldn’t recommend this if you are as clumsy as me but other than not being keen on the container, I think its perfect for as hand butter! 7/10

I'll have a week in photos post tomorrow, I'm just about to hop in a hot bath now then watch Made of Honour - ahhh heaven! I hope you're all having a good weekend. Let me know if there are any specific products you want me to look at! ♥


  1. I have the almond hand cream which I love! That is my only pet peeve about the body shop, although it looks pretty, a round tub is such a pain!

  2. I love L’Occitane, it's expensive but you can't go far wrong xx
