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).

  • Super for eczema

    Worked wonders on my husbands hand and elbow eczema, and I used as a winter alternative to the regular Shea hand cream - one application at night has kept dryness at bay

  • Game-changer product for dry, cracked hands

    I have suffered with environmental dermatitis for over a decade. I've used every product - medicated and high street - under the sun. After having no joy with GP prescribed steroidal products, I went in search of something that would ease the annual winter flare ups. After a few years of using the L'Occitane hand scrubs and 20% shea hand creams, I found the 25% Shea Intensive Hand Balm ... GAME CHANGER! My hands have never been so soft or resilient to the changing weather. I've made it from December to March with no soreness, dryness much reduced, and no cracking/splitting of the skin. I posted a before and after picture of my hands and my friends couldn't believe the improvement. From what they posted in reply, you now have quite a few new customers!

  • So silky

    I prefer this over the regular shea butter hand creme. This one by comparison is slightly more silky in texture, and slightly less strong in aroma. Whilst the other smells amazing, it can sometimes be a touch overwhelming—even in just a surface as small as hands.

  • Great Product

    Bought this to combat the dry skin on my hands due to the cold weather and frequent hand washing; ordinary hand cream was just not helping. This has been a marvel; I massage a generous amount into my hands each evening and wear cotton gloves for a few minutes to give it time to absorb and it has made an incredible difference to the texture of my hands. The dry flaky skin and the areas where the skin was actually starting to crack have improved greatly. I will certainly continue to use this product regularly to keep my hands in good condition throughout the winter months.

  • Fantastic for dry winter hands

    I suffered dry and damaged hands after performing some diy on my car when some hydraulic fluid accidentally got onto them. The cold wintery weather did not help much either. My hands were a proper state. Having then used this rich and luxurious hand cream after it was suggested by an in-store L'occitane consultant - my hands returned back to normal and almost instantly lost their soreness. What a relief! The cream is thick and rich when applied, but does not leave any oily residue when worked in. Highly recommended. Pure luxury.
