My Experience with L’Occitane Arlésienne Velvet Hand Cream:
As you can see, this hand cream is packaged in a beautiful tube with attractive pictures on it. The pink cap hints at the fragrance of the cream in the tube. Now coming to the fragrance, I can assure that each and every one out there will totally love it.
The cream has a stunningly rose fragrance. It is not your normal rose scent, but an enhanced version of it. I just cannot get enough of this fragrance. It is not at all overpowering. The strength of the fragrance reduces slightly with time, but it lasts for a good time around 6-8 hours, albeit with decreasing strength.
The texture of the cream is very light, smooth and non greasy. It is not very creamy but creamy enough to be easily absorbed by the skin on application. It makes hands soft and velvety.
It keeps the hands hydrated until washed thoroughly with water.
