Tocca Giulietta Hand Cream

Marigold is my new model

My hand cream consumption has always been high. I have dry skin, I'm rough on my hands and nails and I live in a climate that can go from cold to humid and hot withing 6 hours (this week is a good example). The tube of Tocca hand cream that was sent to me recently has definitely been put into good use, and I'm glad to report that it's not just a pretty tube with a lovely smelling product, but a very (VERY) effective one as well.

The scent is a light and airy green floral. The texture is very rich yet spreads easily and absorbs quickly. I was certain that it was a silicone-based cream, but no, this is all butters and oils that give real results and feel wonderful for quite a while after application.

Giulietta may not be my favorite Tocca perfume, but it's perfect in this cream format that I don't expect to linger for long. It's on the fresh side of things, light and will not annoy or offend anyone if you use it in the office or on a plane.

Bottom Line: I want another one in Tocca Stella.

    Who's that your new kitten?It's gorgeous!!You just make me want(a little bit more)a new baby in the house,but one of my 4 "children" doesn't addapt so easily to newcomers...

  3. hi, marigold! my favorite name of your new awesome threesome!

    does everyone know that citrus and woody scents are bad for the kitties' livers? have been playing with essential oils lately, and want to be sure folks know that. i used to use a fir scent and a woodsy/fire scent as air fresheners, but won't any longer, because they're not good for the cats' livers - they can't metabolize the molecules the way we can. tea tree oil and camphor (made from a fir tree) are also toxic to kitties.
