Review: L’Occitane Zesty Lime Hand Cream

Due to all the cold weather we’ve been having over the past few weeks, my hands have been particularly dry of late. I’ve always suffered with dry skin, I have Psoriasis on some areas of my skin, but whilst my Psoriasis has never thankfully, spread to my hands, they still can become very flaky, dry and sore at times.

I don’t tend to use perfumed creams when my hands are very bad as I fear it might irritate them but I was in L’Occitane a few weeks ago and came across this Zesty Lime hand cream. Now don’t get me wrong, I’ve used L’Occitane hand creams before but sometimes found them to be a bit sticky so have never been particularly overwhelmed by them. However, I’m a sucker for anything with a citrus scent so I decided to give this one a go.

Made from 20% Shea Butter, Lime Oil, Lemon Peel Oil and Sunflower Seed Oil amongst other ingredients, the cream itself is quite thick on application, but super hydrating and moisturising. It also leaves a lovely soft shimmer on your skin. Most importantly of all however, it’s not sticky like some of its counterparts that I had previously tried.

But the real selling point for me with this is the scent. My god, the scent! The minute I apply it to my hands, I literally sit there smelling my hands like a weirdo for a few minutes because I love it so much. Isn’t that the sign of a great product though?

If you’re not a fan of citrus then this isn’t for you as it is quite strong. If like me you can’t resist it however, and you’re looking for a new hand cream then I’d suggest giving this one a try.

The tube costs €8.00 for the 30ml tube, so it’s not going to last forever. Having said that, you really only need a small amount of cream for each application so it’s a winner in my view.

Don’t you just love when something surprises you?!
