L'Occitane Almond Delicious Hand Cream

Oh L'Occitane, you sure do know how to make a good hand cream! I'm kind of obsessed with hand creams in general, as my hands get quite dry (especially in this harsh Winter weather), but L'Occitane will always have my heart. I've been using L'Occitane's Almond Delicious Hand Cream* ($12 CAD/1 oz.), and I'm in love with both the scent & formula. 


"Enriched with softening almond milk and smoothing almond proteins, this light hand cream instantly helps to moisturize and beautify your hands’ skin. Almond Delicious Hands also leaves behind the delicate, fragrance of almond tree flowers." - L'Occitane 


L'Occitane's Almond Delicious Hand Cream comes in a small green tube, which is perfect to throw in your purse for on the go use. I don't know that I'd be able to describe what an almond smells like, but I do love this scent. This scent is fairly light, but it does linger on my skin for an hour or so. This formula is a bit thinner than other L'Occitane hand creams that I've tried, but it still does a great job hydrating my skin. This formula sinks in quickly, and leaves my hands feeling silky smooth. This hand cream also lasts throughout a few hand washes, so you don't need to constantly reapply (although you'll want to because the scent is amazing!). 



If you're in the market for a lightweight hand cream that still delivers a boost of hydration, you can't go wrong with L'Occitane's Almond Delicious Hand Cream. Have you tried any products from L'Occitane's Almond range? I'm really interested in their Almond Shower Oil, it sounds divine! :)

  4. I love this hand creme! I'm so upset I didn't pick it up while at the L'Occitane store. I instead got the Vanilla one since I figured I could purchase the Almond one at Sephora. I'm almost out of my vanilla one and will be getting the almond one soon.

  6. I've only tried one sample of L'Occitane hand cream, and it was a bit heavier than this...I like how this is moisturizing but lightweight (I need that at work, as I don't have hours to let it soak in).

    1. I've also used their Shea Butter hand cream which is a lot heavier (but incredible). The formula seems to vary with the scents!
