3 essential hand products from L’occitane

Hello lovelies

Last week I visited the L’occitane store in the Waterfront and had the best customer experience. My mom and I popped into the store to see what promotions they were running. The sales assistant was helpful, professional and so friendly (I cannot remember his name but there is a picture of him at the bottom on the blog post). Initially, we only wanted to see what was on sale/promotion but we ended up getting complimentary manicures in the store.

“Caring for your hands is vital as we use them all the time.”

It’s great when companies hire staff who are passionate about the brand. The sales assistant was knowledgeable about all the L’occitane products. When I walked out the store it literally felt like I needed the entire range. I would highly recommend visiting the L’occitane store in the Waterfront.

Here are 3 essential hand products from L’occitane and they were used in the manicure too.

One Minute Hand Scrub


The One Minute Hand Scrub has been specially formulated to reveal incredibly soft hands in 1 minute. After washing my hands, I applied the Hand Scrub and rinsed it off. Immediately I saw the difference in my hands; it was soft and looked more polished. I am a firm believer in exfoliating or scrubbing my skin first (as it removes dead skin cells) and then moisturising it. This ensures that the moisturiser works more effectively.

The hand scrub includes an applicator so you don’t have to use your fingers in your product.

Shea Butter Hand Cream

This super-creamy hand cream is luxurious and fast absorbing. It has to be the 20% Shea Butter that’s enriched in the hand cream. My hands were moisturized and smooth with no oily residue. It also contains two of my favourite essential oils, ylang-ylang and jasmine, which leaves a light aroma on the skin (nothing over-bearing).

It does not surprise me that the Shea Butter Hand Cream has won the following awards:

Voted BEST hand cream – Woman’s Own Look Younger Beauty Awards 2014 & 2013

Voted THE ONE AND ONLY hand cream – Red Magazine Green Beauty Awards 2014

Voted BEST hand cream – 2011 Harper’s Bazaar “Beauty Hot 100 list”

Shea Nail & Cuticle Nourishing Oil


The Nourishing Oil contains 30% Shea oil to soften cuticles and strengthens nails. The brush applicator makes application easy and clean. Massage the oil into the cuticles to soften and strengthen your nails. I used the Shea Nail and Cuticle Nourishing Oil after the hand cream.
