Got a Sweet Tooth? You’ll Love L’Occitane Honey Whipped Body Cream & Honey Hand Cream!

L'Occitane Honey Whipped Body Cream, Honey Hand Cream

If you like sweet, powdery scents and are looking for something that will make winter easier on your skin, L’Occitane might have put some good options on the table. Already available in Belgium, the Honey Whipped Body Cream (RRP: 20 euros) and Honey Hand Cream (RRP: 7 euros) have got a lot of love around here (I have about a third left for both)!

The L’Occitane Honey Whipped Body Cream comes in a tin. I normally don’t give cute packaging extra point, but the bear, bees, and honey pot here are pretty adorable!

What’s more, once you are done with the cream, you can remove the plastic insert and keep something else in the tin!

L'Occitane Honey Whipped Body Cream review

L’Occitane Honey Whipped Body Cream has an interesting texture. They didn’t call it whipped for no reason, because it certainly is very airy and moussy! Don’t take this wrong though: this body cream means business! It still contains 10% of shea butter, and even though the texture is more lightweight than other L’Occitane body creams, once you start working it in you will feel the creaminess for sure.

It takes a little time to massage it in. It won’t give your skin the “instantly smoother” illusion that is often the result of silicone or alcohol denat. However, your skin will be nourished and protected. It doesn’t leave a greasy residue behind, but it certainly feels like there is a layer of protection once you are done massaging it in. Don’t worry about it though, as it really is not uncomfortable or sticky!

The weather has been very challenging here, but the winter itch I could get during some winters hasn’t happened yet. Fingers crossed the rest of the L’Occitane Honey Whipped Body Cream will keep it at bay!

L'Occitane Honey Hand Cream

I am a bit of a hand cream hoarder because the skin on my hands is constantly dry. In winter it even cracks, so using hand cream often enough is vital in my book. This tube of L’Occitane Honey Hand Cream has been sitting on my desk. If you are familiar with the original version, you pretty much already know what this one is like because the first 6 ingredients are the same. I have stacked this one up against the original version, and I can’t say they perform differently.

Like the Whipped Body Cream, L’Occitane Honey Hand Cream has a warm, sweet, and powdery scent. Again, this is not something that will give you “instantly smooth” skin that is actually the illusion of silicone or alcohol denat. The texture is on the thicker side, but once massaged in I don’t feel a greasy residue. I can definitely feel a little something still, but that doesn’t bother me. It moisturizes well and is pleasant to use!

What I have realized with hand creams is that not only is finding a nourishing formula important, you need to find something that you would use often. There are hand creams I have tried that aren’t bad, but since I type all the time I don’t reach for anything that feels “slippery” or “greasy” often. L’Occitane hand creams typically leave a tiny bit of residue, but it is something I can tolerate and this formula does work well for me!

Bottom line: You need to like warm, sweet, and powdery scents to dig L’Occitane Honey Whipped Body Cream and Honey Hand Cream. Both formulas are pleasant to use and work well in protecting the skin in the cold. If you are interested don’t wait too long, because they are limited edition products! There is also a shower gel and shea butter in the same line.

Is your skin taking a hit in winter? Am I the only one who is struggling to keep my hands in a decent condition? Does L’Occitane Honey Whipped Body Cream or Honey Hand Cream sound like something you would like to try?

    I’m just running out of my L’occitane Shea Butter hand cream. I tried the olive one, but didn’t like it as much. I might just test this out. What great timing!

    • Sunny

      Not all L’Occitane hand creams are made equal. I personally prefer the kind that has 20% of shea butter in, and this one works as well as the original!

  • Meryl @ Memoiselle

    Hey Sunny,
    I think I’m pretty sure I’ll love this one! I love powdery and sweet scent, moreover I love L’occitane so much! <3

    • Sunny

      Haha yay make sure you look into the line!

  • Angela @ The Unprofessional Beauty Blog

    I’m about to run out of my beloved Jurlique hand cream and I’m going to give this a try.

    • Sunny

      Oh yeah do that! I always have a small tube like this in my purse so I can take care of my hands on the go!

  • beauties

    hooray for honey :)

    • Sunny

      I agree! It’s sweet and yummy!

  • Ruby

    Always love L’occitane products. Their scents are lovely and not too overpowering

    • Sunny

      Hey Ruby, I agree! This one is somehow stronger than usual, but still not nauseatingly sweet!

  • Marla

    You had me until I heard “powdery scent”. That is my least favorite. Oh well, maybe next time.

    • Sunny

      Aww too bad! I can see it’s not everyone’s thing!

  • Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    Like Marla I was all YES to this, until I heard powdery. Not a fan of powdery scents either! Oh well. :)

    • Sunny

      Haha well you can’t like everything! I hope L’Occitane will put out something you like next time 😉

  • Redhotjillypeppers

    I’ve heard so many good things about these products ! I also love the way you can recycle the tin.

    • Sunny

      Yup I’m still trying to figure out what I’ll use it for after I’m done with the cream (which won’t be too long now)!

  • Marijke

    Loooove this products!! The smell, the cute packaging and how it feels on my skin! Lovee it! :-)

    • Sunny

      Yaay glad to hear you’re also a fan! L’Occitane seldom disappoints!

  • BeautyLoves

    I ADORE the hand cream and I really should go buy the body cream, because I know I’ll love that one as well.

    • Sunny

      Oh yeah you will! The fluffy texture is SO interesting!

  • Libby

    I love L’Occitane’s products so much, especially their hand creams. I haven’t tried out the honey scent yet but anything honey is my automatic favorite 😉 I’ve been searching for a new body cream as the one I currently use isn’t quite hydrating enough even if it does smell divine.

    Thanks for the review! I’m definitely going to check this out soon.

    • Sunny

      Haha you’re welcome, Libby! Make sure you check these out. I’ve been using them nonstop! That tube of hand cream is on my desk so I will remember to use hand cream more than once a day 😉

  • Icaria

    This I definitely have to sample! With the cold we’ve been having this sound warming and comforting.

    • Sunny

      Oh yeah I don’t think I’ll like the scent too much in summer, but for the moment it’s so comforting!
