HANDS DOWN | SHEA BUTTER HAND CREAM



This hand cream is not what you'd expect it to be, on first application it feels extremely greasy and thick, then it dissolves leaving your hands really moisturised with a slight coating which fades after a while. It has a nice fragrance too nothing overbearing...it smells like shea butter mixed with something else..? As you may know, when trying out a new product I often go by the packaging and that's what I did with this hand cream. It was shiny and silver and had  me at Shea Butter. I'm easily drawn to shiny things. ( surprise surprise Lol ) 

Believe it or not I picked up this little bargain for £1.00 ( 50g ) from Savers. It's my new handbag hand cream...I take it everywhere! Hands down this is one of the best hand creams I've used for the price, it would make a great winter hand cream. A little goes a long way so you don't need many applications. It keeps your hands feeling moisturised for a while. I've never tried the L'occitane hand cream but I think it may be comparable as the packaging looks similar and they seem to have similar ingredients.
