Fabulous Fridays: Hand Me Some Shea Butter Hand Cream

Hi there fabulous friends. I’m so excited to share with you the first edition Fabulous Fridays, where I’ll feature something cool, amazing and truly worthy. It could be a product, restaurant, destination, etc, so tune in every Friday (if you aren’t already) and check out what you’re sure to love.

One of my worst habits is picking my cuticles until they bleed. I know. It’s really disgusting. When I went for my wedding dress fittings I would have to wear band-aides around my fingers. I have tried all types of hand creams and they are allover our apartment. But I finally found the ultimate hand cream. In my opinion, nothing is as superior as the smoothing and creamy texture of L’Occitane’s best-selling Shea Butter Hand Cream. My hands and cuticles just love its simple, yet luxurious feeling. It’s made from a synergy of 20% shea butter, honey and sweet almond extract, blended with the light and alluring aromas of jasmine and ylang-ylang essences, to fight and protect dry and dehydrated skin. It also contains vitamin E for nourishment. This amazing balm glides on and absorbs quickly right into your hard-working hands without leaving a greasy layer. It’s super moisturizing, leaving your hands really soft. While the hefty $26 for a 5.2 ounce tube or $10 for a 1 ounce tube is a tad steep, a little goes a long way and your hands will applaud you. I know mine do. Sometimes I use this in lieu of a manicure and my hands still look amazing. You can purchase this miracle work at, and


  1. This is my favorite hand cream in the world.

  2. This is an amazing hand cream, but I think I've found a new product for you: J.R. Watkins Hand and Cuticle Salve. You can get it at Whole Foods I think. It is AMAZING. I keep it at my desk. It fixes up those cuticles instantly!

  3. sounds like something I should try, always had issues with my cuticles, tend to pick them too. with the gel nails they're a little better since they don't touch the cuticles when I get a manicure, but could use a good strong cream..I'll have to give it a try, thanks!
