L’occitane’s The Secret To Beautiful Hands ($60; usa.loccitane.com) holiday kit which is limited edition, features some of the brand’s beast selling Shea Butter infused hand care.
The kit contains full sizes of the Shea Butter Hand Cream (with 20% Shea Butter), the Shea One Minute Hand Scrub (15% Shea Oil) and the Shea Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Oil. The L’Occitane Website also lists a Magic Key Press Tub as part of the kit, but mine din’t come with one, so I'm not sure if its a typo. Everything comes packaged in a gorgeous, reusable gift box. Except for the Nourishing Nail & Cuticle Oil, I’ve tried everything else before. The hand scrub (full review here), which is a two phase scrub, when combined with the super moisturizing hand cream keeps hands looking extremely well maintained and neat. The Cuticle Oil with 30% Shea Oil, is nice as well, it does take a bit of time to absorb, but once it does, it seals in the moisture. I would have preferred it to be a tad more balmy since it needs to be reapplied in a few hours. Applying hand cream on top sorts that out though. Overall, its an amazing kit and a beautiful gift for anyone who loves hand care and a little bit of pampering at home!
