Pamper Your Hands With L'OCCITANE

I think it's important to look after your hands throughout the whole year, not just in the winter when they are slightly more prone to becoming dry or chapped. So, let me introduce you to my pampering routine as of late, with two more gorgeous products from the lovely L'OCCITANE. 

So my 'mini-regime' if you like, features an oil-based hand scrub, followed by an absolutely divine hand cream that together, give me soft and replenished paws in less than two minutes. First up, is the hand scrub which is an absolutely gorgeous in itself. L'OCCITANE claim that this scrub is specially made up to reveal 'incredibly soft hands in 1 minute' with a 'bi-phase' formula...

To begin with, brown sugar exfoliates, getting rid of and eliminating any dead skin cells. I really love this stage as the scrub feels really gentle and cleansing. The second, oily phase endeavours to deeply nourish and hydrate the hands using shea butter, grapeseed and sweet almond. This really, really works and each time I use it, I'm always amazed at how replenished and baby-soft my skin feels! The One Minute Scrub is such a pamper product, but at the same time is so easy to get on with. The little spatula that's included, ensures limited and mess-free application of a concentrated formula, that gives incredible 'fix' results in just 60 seconds.

Now L'OCCITANE are just a little bit famous for their stunning selection of hand creams. My personal favourite is the formula from the 'Lavende' range, which just smells HEAVENLY! If you've been reading my blog for a while now, you'll know that I love me a bit of lavender. There is actually another hand cream that goes with the scrub as part of a duo, but I just couldn't leave the shop without this one as it just leaves the hands lightly scented with the most beautiful of ALL essential oils!! All of the hand creams throughout L'OOCCITANE are so light and formulated to be non-greasy, quick absorbing and SUPER hydrating. This hand cream is the perfect finale to my hand-pampering routine and my skin is left feeling soft, supple and luxurious.
