Editor’s Pick: the insiders’ must-haves

THE HAND-CREAM HERO

Do your hands a favour and treat them to L’Occitane’s bestselling product – the Shea Butter Hand Cream, writes M&S.com beauty editor, Jess Clark.

For devotees of L’Occitane’s cult classic, the Shea Butter Hand Cream needs no introduction. The French brand’s multi-award-winning product, which turns 20 this year, sells once every three seconds somewhere in the world – and for good reason. The ultra-creamy balm feels rich but not greasy, and smells good enough to eat. It has genuinely ethical credentials: the shea butter is produced in Burkina Faso, West Africa, through a UN-acclaimed charitable project which gives the women who make it a sustainable income. Plus, as someone addicted to hand cream, the formulation – with 20 per cent shea butter, honey, almond extracts and coconut oil – is my personal handbag must-have; I literally don’t leave home without it. Snap up yours now, available for the very first time at M&S.
