L'Occitane 1 oz hand cream tubes are not just the perfect size to be snatched by a cat (when will I learn?), but also a handbag staple (and a great stocking stuffer). I love that L'Occitane makes them in several scents other than the original. They recently added Délice des Fleurs (I talked about this sumptuous scent in my review of the shower gel) and Délice des Fruits.
Truthfully, I was a bit wary of the fruity scent, but L'Occitane took it into a delicious holiday-appropriate direction when instead of sharp and so-called fresh citrus, they made their lemon and clementine into candied fruit zests (note to my mother: are you making any this year?). The fragrance used here is decidedly sweet and clearly a gourmand, so take that into consideration. Personally, I enjoy it a lot.
L'Occitane hand cream formula is always a treat. It's rich and nourishing but also fast absorbing and doesn't leave print marks all over my laptop. Now I just need to dig it from wherever Cedric and Olivia managed to stash the tube this time.
L'Occitane Délice des Fruits Hand Cream ($10, 1oz) is available at L'Occitane stores and online. The item for this review was sent to me free of charge.
