I purchased this product after the sales assistant made a demo for me. This product made my hand softer and smoother instantly and so I had to buy this.
My hands become dry in winter. I have a few different hand creams, but I’m not consistent in applying them, especially at night. So, my hands had become a concern for me recently. I was not looking for a hand scrub as such, but I just bought this product after the demo.
The One Minute Hand Scrub has been specially formulated to reveal incredibly soft hands in only one minute. Organic sugars and shea oil work together to gently exfoliate dry hands and cuticles. Its bi-phase formula contains exfoliating organic sugar to gently Scrub and eliminate dead skin cells and shea, sweet almond and grape seed oils to help soften and nourish hands. Pair with Shea butter hand Cream.
This product has a grainy scrub-like consistency.
What is a Bi-Phase formula?
Having two distinct phases.In this case a solid and liquid form put together.
Directions For Use:
Mix the formula with the spatula. Apply to dry hands and massage gently focusing on the cuticles.
AUD 29.95 (Approx INR 1617) for 100 ml.
My Experience with L’Occitane Shea Butter One Minute Hand Scrub:
I have been using this product every day for two weeks now. This product seems to contain sugar grains and thus has a grainy texture. However, the oily part is made of shea butter and it adds nourishment. So, the grainy texture exfoliates, but the oil gives back moisture to hands. When applied to dry hands and massaged for one minute (as directed) and then washed off, you can feel the difference in one single use (that’s how I got hooked on to this product –at the demonstration in store).
Hands are moisturised so well that you don’t need to moisturize them afterwards. However, I use shea butter hand cream after using this scrub. I feel the hand cream really sinks in well if used after this hand scrub. I also use this on my elbows. The fragrance is delicious. This is the first hand scrub I have ever purchased. I personally think, given the price, why not leave it on for five minutes and let the shea butter sink into your skin? When I do that, I feel my hands are even more softer.
The fragrance, the label and maybe the price makes you feel like you have been to the nail spa. I got gel nails done last month and removed them after three weeks. As my nail bed is very thin now (since it was filed prior to applying gel nails), I won’t be going in for manicures for now. Meanwile, I’m using tis scrub as my own little treat. :manicure:
Pros of L’Occitane Shea Butter One Minute Hand Scrub:
- Does what it claims.
- Does not contain harmful chemicals.
- Contains shea butter and has a divine fragrance/
- Moisturises as well as exfoliates, a two-in-one product.
Cons of L’Occitane Shea Butter One Minute Hand Scrub:
- Very pricey for a hand scrub.
- Not a must-have item in everyone’s beauty bag, powdered oats mixed with olive oil and honey works in an almost similar way.
My Verdict on L’Occitane Shea Butter One Minute Hand Scrub:
It is worth the price if you can afford it, especially if you do DIY manicures at home.
Will I Buy L’Occitane Shea Butter One Minute Hand Scrub?
I will buy this again unless I find an effective yet cheaper product. L’Occitane regularly discontinues products. Even though this product is available now, there is a possibility that any L’Occitane product that we fall in love with might get discontinued. I don’t understand why they have to discontinue products on a regular basis.
4.5/5. I have deducted 0.5 for the price.
