|L'occitane Honey hand cream with a cute bear on the tube!|
When I first heard about L'Occitane it was through the endless magazine promos. I have to admit I just thought it was 'another' product. But since I have become a beauty writer and blogger I have found out a lot more about products, what they contain, how they are made, fair manufacture and ethical companies. I try to champion them on this blog.

Why do I like this product?
- The tube is handbag friendly, recycleable and has a cute bear on the front.
- Contains 20% shea butter (the stuff that is in a lot of body butters). It nourishes and softens your skin, helping seal moisture in. Very important for hands which are repeatedly subjected to washing and drying, or harsh weather conditions.
- L'Occitane are a company which try to use organic products and protect the earth. They try to ensure a fair wage goes to the original producers. They are also working hard to protect out bee population, who are struggling and in danger of dying out. It is reportedly due to use of harsh farming chemicals confusing the bees and scrabbling their senses. They then loose their way and die from exhaustion while trying to find the hive.
- Specifically this product smells good enough to eat. AMAZING! It smells of yummy sweet honey but without bee-ing (sorry- bad pun!) sickly or overpowering. A little goes a long way. My hands love it and everyone I have given some too has either bought it or loved their gift.

Creme Mains Miel cost £8 for 30ml online link but it is worth checking out UK QVC (link) who have L'Occitane products too!
Do you use L'Occitane? What do you think of their hand creams? How you do keep your hands soft?
