To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Product was a part of a Birthday gift . Arrived & when unpacked the presentation box was damaged & sealed together with sellotape . I didn’t think to take a picture but was so very disappointed. Had to buy an alternative .
This is a counterfeit product. The packaging is not the same color (i.e. The cap is black whereas the real product has a navy blue cap). The lotion does not smell anything like the real L'occitane, it smells very strongly like baby powder. The lotion is also much much greasier than the real L'occitane. Just purchase the lotion from L'occitane's actual website instead of using prime, don't waste your money.
Nachdem ich die Salbe in einem Geschäft gekauft und ausprobiert habe war ich positiv überrascht eine sehr gute Handcreme nach langem Suchen gefunden zu haben. Doch nachdem sie aufgebraucht war und ich eine neue über diesem Weg bestelle wollte ist das Geld abgebucht wurden und das Produkt ist bis heute noch nicht da! Nach kontaktieren des Verkäufers kommt nur in Googleübersetzerdeutsch zurück ist im Moment nicht auf Lager.
Do yourself a favor and save your money- You will get the same results (or lack of!) from any cheap drugstore brand. I really don't understand after using this why there are so many favorable reviews? Granted my hands are dry, but any softness given by this product is immediately washed down the drain after washing my hands. If I have to reapply every time I wash my hands to get any benefit, I can get that same benefit from any hand cream, and for much less money. I tried to give the product a few weeks to see a difference, but the only difference I see is a bigger hole in my pocket, LOL. Sending back today!
I love this hand cream & have been using it for about 5 years. As many others have said, it does a fantastic job of moisturizing my hands with a very small quantity of cream. I have very dry skin which get substantially worse in the winter. My finger pads become cracked.
My daughter has a similar problem and I decided to buy a tube for her. She used it after we left and loved it. Then she read the box. She has a life threatening allergy to tree nuts and immediately contacted me. She texted me the box with the sweet almond fruit extract circled. As I retired RN I was stunned that a company like L’Occitaine would FAIL to put an allergen warning label on this cream. I searched several scientific journals on the matter and yes, a person who has an allergy to Tree nuts SHOULD NOT use a product containing almond extract in any form, particularly when cuts in the skin can lead to a direct route to the blood. Even topical absorption is a bad idea. Our FDA should know better in the absence of corporate responsibility.
I will never trust another beauty product again without checking ALL ingredients first.
I bought and used this product several times. I love the excellent moisturizing and creaminess and fragrance—not too heavy, but.....I broke out with a rash that was very itchy—a “fine” rash that was all over my hands and wrists. I had to research all the ingredients to find what could be causing the rash—I was already tested positive to preservatives found in cosmetics by my Allergy Doctor. On THIS L Occitane label, I didn’t see any of the “common” preservative names, such as diazolidinyl urea, behentrimonium chloride etc—that’s why I kept buying it! But I found out that Phenoxyethanol is a VERY irritating preservative along with Chlorphenesin—rash causing! So sad for such a wonderful product to use these skin “unfriendly” preservatives!!! I switched to “Deep Steep” brand, very nice product WITHOUT those “harmful” preservatives. For those who have sensitive dry skin—beware!!!
