Texturally pleasing balm glides on and absorbs to help heal and protect dry or dehydrated skin. Anti-oxidizing vitamin E helps nourish.
Hands speak your age - but not indelibly. Shea Butter is used traditionally by African woman to soothe and smooth skin exposed to Earth's fiercest ultraviolet conditions, and now can help relieve and restore yours. Massage this silky treatment into hands to counter dryness, retexturize skin and restore circulation.
Best of best! Been using this for years, can't live without this Shea Butter Hand cream. It is super moisturizing yet non-greasy. Love its consistency -- not too thick, not too thin. Leaves my hands silky smooth!

When I first started using this hand cream, it was only $20.00 but now the price has gone up & rightly so! It's the best hand cream EVER!
Megan C - 2010/07/25
This is the best hand cream out there! In the winter, my knuckles crack and bleed from the cold and dry air. This is the only stuff that works. I also develop patches of eczema on the insides of my elbows and the corners of my eyelids, and this works better than the prescription I was previously using. I will never be without it!!
Jennifer C - 2010/07/05
I love this hand cream! This is the best hand cream that I have ever had. I keep this with me at all times. It's so thick and creamy, but not greasy at all.
Cynthia W - 2010/02/11
Just got my hand cream in the mail today...Amazing stuff! Great for the harsh winter dryness in your skin!
Stephanie S - 2009/12/29
This size is a great value. I always give this as one of my gifts to my dog groomer, and she loves it. For anyone with dry hands, or whose hands are in water lots, this is a great gift. It also lasts a long time.
Heidi H - 2009/12/11
This stuff is amazing. Buy it.
Shane B - 2009/12/05
One of the few hand creams I take with me everywhere. It lasts a long time too!
Kelli J - 2009/10/06
I used this last winter because the tops of my hands get very, very dry. I used this and it went away within a couple of days. Great stuff!
Charity S - 2009/05/11
This is the greatest hand cream..ever! I don't have any greasy after effect.
Dale S - 2009/04/30
This amazing cream has finally helped this nurse (whose hands are in gloves and water constantly) to have hands I'm proud to let others see!! Merci' L'Occitane!
Vanessa P - 2009/04/30
I am hooked on this hand cream!! Smells heavenly, works great, yet not sticky!! I wouldn't settle for anything else! I tried Rose (which is usually my favorite) and Lavender too, but nothing works as well as the original :)
Victoria R - 2009/04/29
I have a new favorite! I am so glad I found this hand creme. My search for something to help my rough hands is over.
MICHELE M - 2009/04/28
Words are not enough to describe how amazing this hand cream is. I have given this many times as gift to my mother, and to all of my girlfriends. I won't leave home without it, I have a small tube in my purse, one in my car, in my travel kit, and a large tube next to my bed. It's not greasy, melts into your hands and feels great. If you can only buy 1 product, this should be your purchase. Enjoy!
Yaling C - 2009/04/26
I totally enjoyed this product. The cream is non greasy and soothing. It is so far my top choice for hand cream.
Corlean P - 2009/04/25
My mom gave me this hand cream over 8 years ago for Christmas and I've used it ever since. It is my "go-to" hand cream. The scent is subtle and it absorbs well without leaving a greasy residue. I use it primarily at night and my hands feel great in the morning. I rec. to everyone looking for a great hand cream and I used many from expensive to cheap drugstore ones.
Robert H - 2009/04/23
My wife and I love to leave the cold, dry climate of Wyoming and escape to Colorado for but only a day. Our favorite store, Essentials keeps a variety of lotions, creams, soaps and scents on hand to sample and buy. We invariably gravitate towards the L'Occitane products of which my wife loves and I buy for her. Well, this trip it was my turn and I purchased this hand cream. It's wonderful for my 50 year old hands and since I teach, all the women at work help themselves and now are customers.
Sharon H - 2009/04/22
I have been hooked on L'Occitane's Shea Butter Hand Cream since receiving a sample of it on a flight a few years ago. It has an addicting scent and it's non-greasy formula absorbs quickly and lasts for a very long time. I highly recommend this product as a Mother's Day gift!
Pamela Q - 2009/04/21
This is my most favorite product hands down (no pun intended). I enjoy all the products in this line but I am constantly using the hand creme. I have even turned my co-workers on to it. There is something refreshing and soothing about the fragrance and it's the only hand creme that keeps my hand silky smooth and moist. I handle a lot of paperwork on the job which tends to dry my hands and I always keep a tube along side my computer.
Michel B - 2009/04/19
My mom is 88 years old and I recently introduced her to a sample gift set of Shea Butter hand creams. After many New York winters and a lifetime of working with her hands, her skin has been rejuvenated and revitalized by the Shea Butter. I delight in honoring her with gifts from L'Occitane.
Malavika S - 2009/04/18
I used a tester, and walked about the mall for a few hours. The softness from this NEVER left, and it felt so smooth and non-greasy. I went back to buy this product. I would recommend this for anyone who loves that silky, natural feeling!
Alyssa D - 2009/04/15
Oh what a wonderful hand cream is this ! I am a nurse and my hands get so dry from a lot of handwashing and scrubbing. Just a little of this cream helps wonderfully. It goes on really smooth and not greasy at all. Love it !
DJOANNA V - 2009/04/14
This hand cream is amazing... very light and yet very powerful! It leaves my skin soft without the residue, it's worth every penny you spend for it!
J E - 2009/03/25
Absolute wonderful, luxurious indulgence. I keep this at work and every time I put it on it is so refreshing. Since I live in a desert climate the extra Shea Butter is so soothing to sun exposed hands. I never realized until I got "older" that your hands seem to age faster than the rest of your body if you don't give them extra care. I find that treating yourself to little things that make you feel pampered is so worth it.
Rosanne C - 2009/03/24
Have tried DOZENS of different hand creams over the years---this is the best one ever-----it really does the job! Vive L'Occitane!
Clariss Ann L - 2009/02/09
I used to use L'Occitane's Lavender hand cream and loved it! So, I bought this to try. I love it even more! It keeps my hands moisturized in the winter. I'm gonna use this from now on! I love the scent!
Ashley K - 2009/01/30
This has been a great find for my super dry winter skin. This cream keeps my hands smooth and healthy. I'll always keep a stock of this handy!
Marie M - 2008/12/28
Just received this cream for Christmas! Leaves skin soft and hydrated for a long time after application. Not quite as quickly absorbed as the Biotherm hand cream which is the only cream I have used that leaves absolutely no greasy residue, but I think this one by L'Occitane does a better job at keeping my hands moisturized. Great value, well worth the price. Recommended!
Jodi B - 2008/12/01
I love this cream! It keeps my hands super soft and it's perfect for this time of year!
Sherry C - 2008/11/29
I put this hand cream on my hands before I go to bed at night, and when I wake up, I'm always surprised at how soft my hands are! This is truly the best hand cream out there, and in my opinion it is a great price for the product! :) I've told all my friends about it, and I've gotten my coworkers this cream as a gift many times~ Thanks L'Occitane!
Elena S - 2008/11/27
My skin became really dry when I started breastfeeding my daughter. I tried a lot of moisturizing hand creams, but none of them helped. Finally, I discovered L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream. It did wonders with my hands. Now they are silky and soft… like baby’s hands!
Ann N - 2008/11/26
My girlfriend talked me into getting this hand cream. I always get cracks on the tips of my fingers near my nails. They are painful and bleed. I have tried every other cream and product on the market and still kept getting them until I tried this! It has been down in the 20's and I still haven't gotten one since using this cream twice a day. I'm hooked!!
Luann G - 2008/11/26
I love this hand cream-- light, non-greasy, and smells great!
Neung K - 2008/11/24
I just bought this today! and it made my day! it feel so soft and rich! i used bunch of other hand creams but this is the BEST! I'm soo happy to know this product!! and thanks to L'occitane!! and my friends who introduced me this product!!!!!!
Patricia U - 2008/11/22
When Ohio weather turns cold, my hands immediately begin to suffer, with painful cracks on my fingertips. L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream starts healing cracks OVERNIGHT! No other product I've tried works so well. It's a "must have"!
Sandra K - 2008/11/20
Great for rough, dry hands!
Jiajie D - 2008/11/17
I never imagined that my heavy-working hands could be recovered! Just in one night! I put a thick layer on my hands and put a pair of gloves on. The next morning, the skin of my hand felt so smooth.
Kirsten K - 2008/11/15
I have this in my purse and carry it with me always. It makes your hands so smooth yet not greasy. I love this.
Allison L - 2008/11/14
This is the best hand moisturizer L'Occitane has to offer. Great buy and lasts a long time.
Michelle C - 2008/11/13
Oh, my gosh. Is there anything that smells better? Great stuff!!
Michelle M - 2008/11/13
Love this product. I got it on QVC. It's so good on my dry skin.
Marilyn W - 2008/11/12
This hand cream left my hands feeling like silk. Wonderful product!
Evelyn D - 2008/11/12
This is the best hand cream that I have ever come across, and I don't think that it could get any better. It's rich and provides you hands with moisture that lasts throughout the day, without leaving it greasy. It's the best.
Virginia M - 2008/11/12
Very emollient, the best hand cream I have ever used.
Vanessa S - 2008/11/12
I love this lotion because it brings moisture to my hands, especially in winter dryness. It just feels good going on and under the skin. Because I love it so, I order the mini (purse) size at Christmas and treat my friends to this special gift. I remember reading about it in "In Style" about six years ago and found it online. I buy up extra tubes (5.2 ounce) to have a supply all year round and never run short of my absolute, number one, favorite, dreamy "Creme Mains" Shea
Sonia Z - 2008/11/11
I love it, i have been using it for so many years and it keeps my hands young and soft.
Sara B - 2008/09/22
I was in Paris on my honeymoon. I neglected to bring any hand lotion and it was November, so I popped into the nearest drugstore and happened to grab a tube of this lotion (only because I could decipher that it was hand lotion!). My tube ran out by the end of the trip, but I longed for that hand cream once back in America. Too bad I can't just head into a drugstore to buy it, but it's worth the effort. The smell reminds me of Paris and my hands are super pampered :)
Sandra W - 2008/08/01
this is the best I've ever used, and it's not greasy at all !!
Judith T - 2008/07/31
The first time I used this I was sold, my girlfriend sent me a gift of this line as a birthday gift. I got to enjoy the hand cream and many of the other fine products. Thank you for an awesome product and saving my hands!
Sandra Christine L - 2008/07/30
Keeps my hands soft and supple throughout the year!
Anne K - 2008/07/30
This continues to be the best hand and body cream on the market. It gets me through every winter without a problem. New friends continue to ask me what it is when I share, and viola, a new L'Occitane customer is born.
Sue S - 2008/07/23
This is the finest hand cream period. I have been using the Creme Mains for 10 years and it is just wonderful. This company has been wonderful to purchase from and always has quality no matter what I have purchased.
Julia B - 2008/07/23
This product is wonderful: non greasy, neutral scented and the results are amazing! I carry it with me wherever I go!
Linda L - 2008/07/22
I use a variety of L'Occitane products, from the Immortelle line for daily use to citrus and green tea shower gels for summer; my very favorite product is this Shea Butter Hand Cream. If I can only buy one thing from L'Occitane, this would be it. I use it year 'round; I give it for birthdays and Christmas to friends and family and even people at the office. When it's winter time, you feel you're that much more ready to go out into the cold when you put this hand cream on your hands and arms! Try it!
Chanice D - 2008/07/21
Okay, I LOVE this hand cream. People think I'm crazy but I seriously SAVE a budget for this. I have three little ones so money is tight but I cannot and will not use any regular hand lotion. I remember running out of this once so I went to the drug store and bought some regular lotion, let me tell you those were the longest two weeks of my life waiting for my paycheck! Your hands will thank you.
Wendy H - 2008/07/21
My skin was damaged from chemotherapy treatment for breast cancer, and this product made it soft & smooth again. I can't thank you enough for this wonderful product.
Kara P - 2008/07/21
My husband and I both get eczema from time to time. No moisturizer has worked nearly as well as this for healing our skin. There are natural anti-inflammatory properties to Shea Butter which may explain why it helps with eczema. In any case, this cream is super thick and lovely, it rubs right into your skin and keeps your hands soft all day.
Julie M - 2008/07/20
I love this hand cream! I keep a tube in my night stand, purse, bathroom and work desk drawer. I gave it to my Mom last Christmas and now she is hooked, too.
Stephanie S - 2008/07/17
This is the last hand cream you will ever buy. Worth every penny. Your hands will thank you!
Fang-Yu C - 2008/07/16
This is the best product that I have found for protecting my skin. You must try it.
Gayle S - 2008/07/15
I purchased a gift set containing this product five years ago. I would never try or use anything else. The product is hydrating without being greasy and has a lovely clean fragrance without being overwhelming. I always carry a small tube with me and have made converts of anyone ever trying this product. I believe it is the best hand cream available anywhere. It may seem expensive compared to drugstore brands, but it last a very long time and is worth every penny!
Tammie M - 2008/07/15
I believe this is the best hand cream ever made. The smell is amazing and you need just a pea size. Leaves your hands silky smooth & your cuticles soft. It not only heals but always protects them as well. I am always amazed how well it works not only in the winter, but spring, summer & fall. I have been using this handcream since the 90's. I have tried others but always come back. I keep a large tube by my bed and minis in my purse, car and at work. You will not be disappointed with this.
Debra Rhodes S - 2008/07/14
The best hand cream I have ever used. Takes away the crepe look and keeps it away.
Kimberly B - 2008/07/14
Why I like this hand cream: its clean scent doesn't interfere with my perfume, it's not so greasy that I'm wiping my hands after an application, and most importantly, it hydrates so well I only need to apply it once a day.
Diane B - 2008/07/14
Best hand cream I have ever used! I even use a little on the skin under my eyes before makes to "soften" them up.
Marilyn C - 2008/07/10
This is the first product that I ever bought from L'Occtane. I needed to have something to take care of my cracked skin that I usually get through Chicago's harsh winters and this product definitely works! I use nothing else. I reccommended this product to all my friends and relatives and now I have them hooked. When the holidays come around, I go to L'Occitane for their gifts and always select this hand cream with the Shea Butter tin sample in all their gifts from L'Occitane.
LUCY C - 2008/07/10
This is an amazing hand cream. It makes my hands and nails feel smooth and hydrated. I use it everyday and share with my friends and family this product all the time.
Ashley S - 2008/07/09
I have been addicted to this stuff since 2002! I use it every night before bed. It is the Tiffany's of hand cream. The texture and consistency is like butter, and the fragrance is lovely as well. I carry the travel size in my purse and use it for all kinds of emergency fixes. It has saved the day more than once when I had dry skin on my legs, or had to touch up my hairstyle by smoothing down unruly dry fly aways.
Chai Hon N - 2008/07/09
Only this works...it softens my dry itchy hands, and especially during winter. My hand-saver!
Mery J - 2008/07/08
this hand cream is so silky and nice. it also smells good, but if you like a sweet scent, try the cherry blossom one. this moisturizes like no other hand cream. i carry the little travel size one with me all the time.
Stephanie K - 2008/07/08
I work for a company now who sells a hand cream in a smaller size that is twice the price. I have to say, it doesn't even compare to L'Occitane. I am guilty of sending more than one customer to the store nearby to try this one....
Cindy O - 2008/07/08
This is the best hand cream ever! It leaves my hands silky soft, but not greasy, because it absorbs completely. Has a nice soft rose scent.
Jennifer K - 2008/07/07
This is my favorite hand cream ever! I live in a really dry place, and this keeps my hands soft and protected without greasiness or lots and lots of applications. The light scent is perfect - not too overwhelming for co-workers or family that may have difficulty with strong odors.
Debbie C - 2008/07/06
Hands down, L'Occitane has the best hand creams on the market. My hands are in and out of water all day long and this beauty has staying power. Most other hand creams or lotions lose their effectiveness after the first time in water. I do have to admit I prefer the Lavender cream over the Shea Butter. It seemed that I had to use a little less (maybe because of the Lavender AOC oil) and I am partial to the fragrance. I bought it because it was 3.00 cheaper than the Lavender. What was I thinking?
RUI G - 2008/07/06
best hand cream!! love it!!
Lisa S - 2008/07/03
This hand cream is without a doubt the best in the market!! From the rich creamy feel without a greasy film left on the hands...to the intoxicating fabulous scent! I use it throughout the day and especially at night before bed. Crazy for it!!
Kristine B - 2008/07/03
a little bit of heaven in a little silver tube. hands down the best hand cream i have ever used!
Linda A - 2008/07/01
This cream is amazing!!! It is light, not greasy and has a wonderful fragrance. I recommend it to all my friends.
Adrienne B - 2008/07/01
My co-worker recommended this for dry hands at work. My hands literally glide on the computer each time I use it!
Mathilde H - 2008/07/01
My daughter brought this hand cream to me after a summer study class she took in Paris six years ago. I have been addicted ever since. My hands look beautiful after I apply it and the scent is.. well, heavenly.
Angie B - 2008/07/01
This product is the BEST. Once you use this hand cream you won't buy anything else!
Vickie E - 2008/06/30
This is the best hand cream I have ever used. It keeps my hands from drying out in the winter. My kids like it, too.
Anne W - 2008/06/30
I have eczema on my hands and cannot use many products. I find that with the shea hand creme my hands have become softer than they have been in years and I have fewer flare ups.
Vivian M - 2008/06/30
This is the only hand cream I will ever use. As a elementary school teacher and having to constantly wash my hands all the time, my hands get really dry. However, using this hand cream keeps my skin youthful, soft, and moisturized. I LOVE THIS HAND CREAM! It's the best!
Jeanie C - 2008/06/30
Ever since I used this cream before I go to bed every night, I have not had a problem with cracked, dry cuticles. It smells subtly good and is completely non-greasy, which is rare to find in a hand cream so rich!
Eileen M - 2008/06/30
I have always suffered from dry and cracked skin and was always searching for relief by trying all supposed "best" hand creams. This is "hands down" the very best. My search is over. My hands stay healed especially through the winter.
Yi Z - 2008/06/30
no doubt this is the best hand cream!!!!!
Gina C - 2008/04/10
Best hand cream without being greasy. Can't live without it!
Fei L - 2008/04/08
II definitely love this product. It heals wonderful.
Sara M - 2008/04/08
I absolutely love their hand cremes! They absorb right in without having any residue.
Jennifer T - 2008/04/08
I love this hand cream. I've tried them all and this one is the best!
Corinne K - 2008/04/08
Whenever I use this cream, I can hear my hands say -Thank you, thank you. Yes, it is that good!
Brenda B - 2008/04/08
I first used Shea Butter hand cream while on vacation in France and found it to be the best I have ever used. It is particularly nourishing to cuticles. I was so happy to see I can purchase it online.
Mark H - 2008/04/08
I was given a box of these hand creams as a gift and have been purchasing them ever since along with the soaps and other Shea Butter products! It works best for my skin and is best applied just after taking a shower!
Tammy B - 2008/04/08
The L'Occitane hand cream with 20% Shea Butter has the perfect combination of scent and moisturizer. It has a light scent that is very pleasant so you can apply as much and as often as you like. I find it to be well absorbed and does not blend away when applied. I always have plenty "on hand" at work, home and in my purse.
Sera K - 2008/04/07
Best hand cream!! Smells great!!
Anna I - 2008/04/07
The absolute best! Have it on my bedside table and use it every night. I even have several travel size tubes to go with me whenever I need extra or when I'm traveling! Thank you!!!
Yuan H - 2008/04/07
Nice hand cream. it has a great smell. When I apply it on my hand, I feel that there is a thin layer there protecting my skin, but I dont feel oily at all. And the smell last quite a bit by the way. I like the tube and the woody-like seal paper, because they make the product look back-to-nature.
Alicia V - 2008/04/07
Great product! Moisturizes without any of the greasiness of most hand creams.
Katy K - 2008/04/07
I have tried every hand cream available. This is the absolute best. In wintertime, my hands get so dry that they crack and bleed if I do not use this every night. I work in health care and have to wash my hands multiple times daily. This is the only product that has been truly helpful in managing my dry skin. It smells wonderful, and absorbs quickly without being sticky or greasy. Thank you for your wonderful product.
Gina B - 2008/04/07
By far the best hand cream on the market. Your skin feels soft and smooth all day. I particularly like to put it on before I go to bed. When I wake in the morning, my hands feel amazingly soft and smooth! I love this product!
Jennifer J - 2008/04/07
This si the best hand cream I have ever used. I have extremely dry hands, especially in the winter. A few years ago, a friend got me a tube of the Shea Butter Hand Cream. Ever since then, my hands have been softer. I also use the hand cream on my son's sensitive dry skin, and just a few uses makes his skin softer and more moist for days. Great product!
Theresa T - 2008/04/07
Shea Butter Hand Cream is the Best!! I work in the airline industry and constantly wash my hands throughout the day. At the end of the day my hands were painfully dry and cracked. I had tried many products, some dermatologist recommended, with no success. The effects were short term at best. This product gives long-lasting relief and healing. It absorbs quickly and has a pleasant fragrance. It is definitely a "must have in the bag" item!
Shari C - 2008/04/07
I absolutely love this product!!! It works so well! My hands become extremely dry in the winter and this is one product that helps to keep them moisturized.
Yuki M - 2008/04/07
This has nice aroma! It is effective when I use it before sleeping. It is smooth without being sticky.
Rita F - 2008/04/07
Perfect cream! Moisturizes, soothes, and protects. Thick but not greasy. My absolute favorite hand cream. A real skin-saver in the winter!
Svetlana K - 2008/04/07
It is the best product for hands.I love it!
Merry M - 2008/04/07
Fabulous hand cream. Not greasy at all, long-lasting, and smells great. I've tried MANY hand creams and this is the only one that I buy over and over and over again.
Michael A - 2008/04/07
Miracle hand lotion; an affordable luxury I can't live without. I put it on at bedtime and wake up with manicure-soft hands. Appealing, light fragrance, non-greasy and a delight to apply.
REGINA S - 2008/04/07
This is absolutly the best hand cream I have every tried! Nothing else compares after trying L'Occitane!
