Nothing ruins a cute manicure like dry hands and with frequent washing, sanitizers and harsh weather, it can be difficult to keep skin soft and youthful. Thankfully L’Occitane has luxurious creams and balms infused with rich oils, moisturizing butters and natural plant extracts that heal, nourish and revitalize.
Valentine’s Day may be over but there is still time to get the stylish Hand Cream Gift Set with pampering ingredients sourced from the South of France. These creams are some of my favorites for travel and I keep one in my purse to replenish my hands throughout the day. The set comes with 5 fashionable tubes (Verbena, Cherry Blossom, Pivoine Flora, Rose and Almond) all designed with bright, feminine artwork. The ingredient list includes skin softening components like Coconut, Shea, Sweet Almond Oil, Cherry Extract, Rosemary and Sunflower to treat cracked, damaged skin, repair cuticles, smooth roughness and hydrate with a lightweight silky finish. The set is valued at $60.00 but retails for $50.00 while supplies last.
If winter has taken a toll on your hands, the Intensive Balm is a fabulous treatment for eradicating flakiness and extremely parched skin. The formula contains a high concentration of Shea Butter that penetrates deeply and forms a protective layer over hands, nails and cuticles for instant dryness relief and softness. Although the balm is ultra-rich and a bit difficult to squeeze out of the tube, there is no greasy residue. You can also use it as a recuperative hand mask by applying a generous amount and allowing it to seep in for 10 minutes before blotting off the excess. The balm is great for men who suffer from peeling, damaged skin, those who work outdoors, and professionals who hand wash frequently including nurses, teachers and doctors. The tube is 125 ml and retails for $40.00.
The Shea Collection consists of many lush, hydrating products but one of my favorites is the Foaming Cleanser ($28.00). This smooth, creamy emulsion removes impurities, makeup residue, excess oil and traces of pollution without leaving my face stiff and dry. It can be used morning or night for a soft, fresh complexion.
