Long before LSBB began in 2011, I loved shopping at L'Occitane with my mom and sister, and what we bought the most were their lovely soaps and their cult-classic Shea Butter Hand Cream. I have extolled the virtues of this cream to everyone I know for as long as I can remember, and now that the weather is becoming crisp I find myself reaching for this superhero product. Never have I washed and sanitized my hands more than I have since Covid-19, and this old friend is really preventing my hands from becoming chapped and beaten up! I imagine that I will go through several tubes of this before the weather warms back up!

L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream is a cult-classic for good reason– it is really is utterly extraordinary! This ultra-rich creamy balm deeply moisturizes skin leaving even the most parched skin silky. soft and smooth. Over the years I have gone through countless tubes of this fantastic cream, and I love that it is rich without leaving behind an oily residue. This is a definite must-have for the colder months of the year.
