Several months ago L'Occitane en Provence celebrated 40 years since the company was founded. Since then over 3000 shops and boutiques have opened around the world, proving that the brand, its products and its beliefs are nothing short of incredible. And I for one is a huge fan - if you've missed any of my many reviews of the L'Occitane products, make sure to check them out, via my product directory!

Over those past 40 years the company has made commitments to help fight avoidable blindness, encouraged the emancipation of women in Burkina Faso, and set up a support fund for lavender in Provence.

One of the most popular L'Occitane products has been the L'Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream which also now celebrates 20 years since launched. This cream contains 20% shea butter and is in fact so popular that today around the world, every 3 seconds a tube of Shea Butter Hand Cream is sold. WOW, a true cult product - but no wonder as it is just incredible!

This special edition rose shea butter hand cream still features the high 20% shea butter along with coconut oil making it thick and creamy. Yet it still absorbs super quick into the skin making them feel nourished and soft without any greasiness or stickiness. The cream is also very concentrated so you only need to use a little, and it keeps your hands soft for hours, so unlike other hand creams, you don't actually have to keep applying over and over throughout the day.

The hand cream has also been fragranced with rose extract making from the freshes of rose petals, giving the hand cream the most beautiful and natural rose scent that keeps lingering on your hands for a long time.

I have always been a huge fan of the original shea butter hand cream, but have to admit that I am in love with this rose version, as it is smells absolutely divine, and it is so girly too, that I know my husband won't be touching it either (like he does with the original one), so I get to keep it for myself, which is a bonus!

Huge congrats L'Occitane on the 40 years, and here's to at least another 40 with
many many new incredible cult products!
