L’OCCITANE EN PROVENCE Hand Cream – Product Review

We all have those essential items we travel with and one thing that I have recently been introduced to is L’OCCITANE en Provence hand cream. It has always been one of those products I was unsure about buying because I have very sensitive and dry skin. If you have ever experienced this, then I am sure you understand. Most lotions dry my skin out more or I suffer an allergic reaction to them.

Whilst shopping one day, I noticed this new hand cream by L’OCCITANE. I thought I would try the limited edition Mango Flower and I can honestly say that after trying this cream, the smell is amazing, application is very smooth plus an added benefit that it really seems to heal my skin. I am so happy that I found something that works and I can’t wait to try more products from this brand.


Several different stores sell L’OCCITANE products, all about the same price. The hand cream that I bought is a 1oz tube (Perfect for traveling) that cost $12.00 from Sephora.

The Pros

  • Smooth texture
  • Great Smell
  • Wide selection of products

The Cons

  • Expensive
  • Traveling with cream (I end up leaving them if I don’t check-in a bag)


I know its a bit off topic but anytime I find a product that works, its worth doing a review. If you are like me and find it difficult to buy lotion that actually works for you, I suggest that you try this hand cream. Your skin deserves to feel greatness.

I have such dry skin and it's such a huge pet peeve of mine - I hate spending money but considering you'd probably spend the same amount of money using more lotion that doesn't work, I suppose it would even itself out.

I was in the boat, Everything I tried never worked like I wanted it to. This cream is amazing!! The ole Phrase "you get what you pay for" fits perfectly with this product.

12 dollars for 1 oz seems pretty steep to me but if it is good quality I'd consider it, especially since my hands get soo dry!

I love L'Occitane products! I always have a travel size hand cream in my bag. They are so great for keeping my hands hydrated even in the driest climates.

Ah I love L'occitane hand cream! I take it everywhere. The lavender one is my favourite - never seen the mango one over here? Will have to keep an eye out for it.
