Holiday favourites #4 - L'Occitane Bonne Mere gentle cream

I'm a bit of a hand cream addict.  It's a product I really can't live without and I always have various tubes on the go which I keep in my handbag, on my desk at work, by the sinks in my house and next to my bed.  So when L'Occitane sent me some their new Bonne Mere gentle creams to try I threw one straight into my holiday flight bag to take away with me.


These creams are from L’Occitane's new Bonne Mere range. 'Bonne Mere' is an expression often used in Provence to express joy, a stroke of good luck and kindness.  The  range comes with two different bases, honey or milk, that are both super creamy and gentle. 

I got to try out the gentle cream in both the milk and honey fragrances (£14 for 75ml) but you can also get a Gentle Body Wash (£22 for 600ml), a Creamy Hand Wash (£13 for 300ml) and a Soap (£4.50 for 100g).  All available from loccitane.co.uk

Although I tool the milk gentle cream away with me on holiday to use as a hand cream, it's actually suitable for the face and body too.  I got through so much of this on holiday as my hands were feeling really tried out from all of the sun, air conditioning and chlorine from the pool.  It sinks in quickly and is immediately comforting on the skin and it leaves a subtle milky creamy fragrance.  I'm looking forward to starting on the honey version now that I'm back.
