Our hands are exposed to more external aggressors than anywhere else on the body, so it’s no wonder many of us suffer from dry, chapped skin. Well, not anymore! The L’Occitane Almond Delicious Hand & Nail Care will keep your hands protected as it’s packed with natural ingredients to nourish and protect the skin, while leaving behind a subtle almond scent. Find out why Almond Delicious is the new must-have addition to my handbag…
The Most Important Thing About This Almond Hand Cream Is…
This best-selling formula was created by the #1 premium hand care brand in the world – L’Occitane; you can see why they’ve received such a prestigious title, with this dry-skin solution from their iconic almond skincare collection, reimagined for shiner, hydrated hands and nails. The nourishing texture leaves hands feeling soft and comfortable all day long, without ever feeling greasy or sticky; it absorbs quickly too so it’s great for a top-up of hydration on-the-go. And I have to tell you about the smell! If you’re familiar with L’Occitane’s Almond range then you’ll already know the sweet and mouth-watering scent of delicious almonds that lingers beautifully on the skin long after use. It’s a luxurious hand cream that delights both the skin and the senses!
What Skin Type Is It For?
The hand cream is suitable for all skin types and would make a good addition to any handbag. It’s especially suited to someone suffering from dry and red skin as it brings instant comfort and hydration.
You Will Love This If…
If you’re struggling with dry hands caused by antibacterial gel or chapped, itchy hands in general, this hand cream will help. The combination of responsibly sourced ingredients works together to moisturise as well as soften the hands and cuticles, whilst making the nails shinier.
The best-selling hand cream is made with 94% natural ingredients. At its heart lies high-quality almond milk and oil from Provence in the South of France, which is renowned for its soothing and softening abilities; it also helps to protect the skin against external aggressors that may cause irritation. The spotlighted almond contains high levels of vitamin E, which has natural antioxidant properties to help reduce inflammation and itchiness. Finally, L’Occitane has added omega 9 to keep hands soft and supple. This star-studded lineup is a part of L’Occitane’s long-term mission to bring the Almond back to France with sustainable farming methods.
What Does It Feel Like?
When you first use the cream it feels thick and nourishing, but then the texture melts into the skin for a lightweight and naturally moisturised feeling. I love that it’s not sticky, greasy or heavy!
What Does It Smell Like?
As the name suggests, this cream has a truly delicious almond scent that’s truly a treat for the senses! It’s soothing, comforting and cosy; I love the way my skin smells after using it as it subtly lingers.
How Do You Use The Product?
Massage the cream into hands throughout the day as often as you like, paying special attention to your knuckles and any dry areas.
What’s Special About The Design?
The luxurious sage-green aluminium tube is made from 95% recycled metal, and the 75ml handbag size is great for on-the-go moisture. But what’s really special about this product is L’Occitane’s consideration to include braille on the box, a feature that I think should be adopted by all brands for its inclusivity. This goes hand-in-hand with their mission for more people around the world to have access to free eye care preventing global blindness.
