Wave goodbye to weather-beaten skin, cracked cuticles and neglected nails with L’Occitane’s most potent hand cream yet

Idon’t need a Met Office report to tell me we’re in the grips of winter’s toughest month – it’s written all over my achy, breaky, flaky hands (and my knackered, peeling nails). Luckily, it’s L’Occitane to the rescue with its new Intensive Hand Balm – a pumped-up version of the brand’s bestselling Shea Butter Hand Cream with even more moisturising oomph than the original. Expertly formulated, it’s creamy enough to make weather-beaten skin feel like new again, without leaving sticky fingerprints on everything you touch. You only need a tiny dollop to give hands a mini facial – and be sure to give cuticles a once over while you’re rubbing it in (nails need all the help they can get at this time of year, too) Win win.
