I think that amongst us there are many lovers of L’Occitane mini fragranced hand creams. Perfumed and nourishing minis, that are regulars in our bags, are always practical, and in addition to their efficiency, the packaging is also an eye-candy.
The decision to buy L’Occitane Neroli & Orchidee cream was firstly the smell of it (in addition to the excellent ingredients of course). At the moment, Neroli & Orchidee is my favorite among L’Occitan’s perfumes. Regarding the level of sweet notes and incredibly lovely fruity-flowery composition, I would place this perfume side by side to Nina by Nina Ricci.
Formulation-wise this is an excellent product with nourishing shea butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract and bitter orange flower oil
Formulation-wise this is an excellent product with nourishing shea butter, coconut oil, vanilla extract and bitter orange flower oil. The texture is light, silky smooth and absorbs very quickly. A smaller amount of silicones are added to the formulation, which for me is a plus.
It is free of “black-list” ingredients such as preservatives parabens, formaldehyde releases (you will not believe it, but they are in a lot of products), alcohol, BHT.
- ingredients pluses: shea butter, coconut oil, sunflower oil, bitter orange flower oil, vanilla extract
- ingredients minuses: none
- texture: light & creamy
- efficiency: without a greasy feeling, absorbs quickly, moisturizing, leaving nicely fragranced skin
I recommend it … if you already are an admirer of this perfume, this hand cream should already live in your bag anyway.
