On first impressions, I liked the packaging which has a vintage French feel to it thanks to the use of font and pale sage green colour. The 30ml metallic tube with screw top is travel friendly and functional for use.
The smooth, lightweight lotion texture was easily absorbed, leaving zero greasy residue. Despite having a light texture, the high quality nourishing ingredients such as shea butter and coconut & almond oils mean that a little goes a long way.
The soft, powdery & milky scent with a subtle hint of almond was both nostalgic & comforting. It smelt fresh and wasn't overpowering, lingering delicately on hands following use.
Immediately following application, my hands were left looking and feeling hydrated. They felt soft but didn't have the velvety smoothness which comes with using a hand cream containing dimethicone (which is a good thing!). Whilst my hands felt soft for some time following use, the feeling of hydration and nourishment wasn't particularly long-lasting. Nonetheless, I was happy with the trade off of having to reapply more frequently for the benefit of the cream not leaving a greasy residue.
L'Occitane Amande Delicious Hands costs £8 for 30ml.
