DESCRIPTION
Formulated with 25% shea butter to provide intense nourishing care, the Shea Intensive Hand Balm forms a protective film for dry to very dry skin. Enriched with allantoin, a naturally moisturising and regenerative ingredient, this ultra-rich shea hand cream absorbs into the hands when applied and massaged in. Use the hand balm daily, or twice-weekly as an intensive hand mask by applying a thick layer to hands and leaving for 10 minutes before massaging excess into the skin.
ADVICE
For daily use: warm a generous amount of balm between the hands, then gently massage into the palms, back of the hands, nails and cuticles (twice a day).







As an intensive mask: apply a thick layer to the hands and leave on for 10 minutes to intensely nourish the skin, then massage in any excess (twice a week).

  • Amazing!

    I used this for the first time last night, before going to sleep. My hands aren’t really an issue, but my elbows - dear lord are they dry. I woke up to baby soft skin on my hands… AND on my elbows! I can genuinely say they have never felt better. I’m converted 100%! Everything else I’ve tried has absorbed too quickly and just feels like I have to put on half a tube to get anywhere. Not with this stuff! This will now be the last part of my night routine, baby soft, no cracked skin - at last! Thank you L'Occitane!

  • The best hand cream

    This cream is so moisturising and a little goes a long way. It always lasts me quite a long time and it feels very luxurious. During winter it especially helps to keep eczema at bay and as always, smells great! It's definitely a treat but I always end up getting one when they have money off events!

  • Amazing!!!

    Amazing hand balm. I was suffering from very dry hands, but after using this balm - what a difference!!! And not only that, I always carry this balm with me and let my dad and few friends try it, they all ordered one! Thank you L'Occitane!

  • Every night essential

    I have used this for well over a year now. Every night before I turn out the light, I rub in a bit, which glides on and sinks in softly, keeps my hands happy. I have terrible skin for tearing and this is the best for keeping my skin healthy. The light fragrance is relaxing and helps tell my brain it is time to sleep.

  • A definite winner!!!

    I am a devotee of this hand cream. I still use the original hand cream too but 2 or 3 times a day I use the intense. I am a regular swimmer and so my skin tends to be dry, so this cream is invaluable to me. It really helps my nails from suffering due to the chlorine. I have no hesitation in recommending it. The tube is a good size and well worth the price.

  • A Brilliant Find!

    I have been suffering with dry hands for a while and, worst of all, had a persistent area of painful cracked skin on my thumb. I saw this and decided to try it (along with the hand scrub). What a great discovery! At last my sore thumb has healed. I love the feel of the balm, it's non-greasy and absorbs easily. One I definitely wouldn't be without.

  • Softest hands

    I initially tried this from a small sample tube - so glad I did. Simply the softest, creamiest, gorgeous smelling hand cream ever - and I have tried a lot! Had to buy full size, which now sits next to bed for that nightly ritual - yum!
