The tube of L'Occitane Cherry Blossom Petal-Soft Hand Cream lives on the side table next to the sofa in my living room. I put it there because the sofa is where I do most of my blogging an other laptop-work, so the hand cream I use there needs to be fast absorbing and not leave grease marks on my electronics. This L'Occitane tube is already 1/3 empty, which should tell you something as I've had it for less than a month, and I'm not even that crazy about the scent.
I mean, it's a fruity floral cherry blossom kind of thing, completely harmless and cute. I don't mind it and it doesn't last too long (unlike the cream's actual performance), but it wouldn't have been my first choice. But I'm happily ignoring the scent, because this just might be my favorite L'Occitane hand cream formula. It's softening, moisturizing, and it keeps my hands feeling happy for hours; all that without a hint of greasiness.
Bottom Line: Dear L'Occitane, please make this cream in any of your masculine fragrances, especially Baux and Vetyver.
L'Occitane Cherry Blossom Petal-Soft Hand Cream ($22, 2.6 oz) is available from L'Occitane boutiques and online. A press sample of the product was sent to me by the company's PR.
