Throughout the winter I've suffered with really bad, dry cuticles. Part of it is my fault as I only really apply hand cream to the back of my hands and not around the nail area because I find it dulls my nail varnish (I could just be imagining that!). I also don't like cuticle oils as I don't like the greasy feeling they leave behind. So, basically my cuticles have been neglected and are in serious need of attention. On a recent trip to L'Occitane I noticed they had a couple of new products with a honey scent. I absolutely love their honey scent! They used to make an amazing shower gel but unfortunately they dis-continued it! I was so happy to see they had brought the scent back in the way of a hand cream and their famous solid shea butter. I've tried the original shea butter before and remembered it being really nourishing for my skin. So, I purchased the honey shea butter in the little tin with the sweetest illustration on the front! This has totally transformed my cuticles! I put it on at night before I go to bed and it doesn't leave my hands greasy or sticky but just really nourished. My cuticles look healthier and are no longer dry. The scent is also lovely and even though it smells like honey, it is not too sweet and sickly.
I would definitely recommend this product for those of you who suffer with any dry patches. you can apply this anywhere and it leaves skin feeling extremely moisturised and nourished!
