I used to be an avid user of L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream and never went without a tube as it’s simply amazing. My hands get super dry and cracked in the Winter and the L’Occitane Cream kept them in check, nicely moisturized and soft without cracks. I stopped using it a few years ago though as it’s simply too expensive… $12 is a lot for a tiny 1 oz tube. Moving on, I’ve become absolutely hooked on Trader Joe’s and at least 80% of my groceries come from there. As much as I love the food items I’ haven’t ventured into the Health & Beauty section besides trying a toothpaste. On my latest trip I came across the Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream Trio. The tubes reminded me so much of my beloved L’Occitane that I just had to get a closer look and the $7.99 price tag sealed the deal.
The Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream Trio Contains three 1 oz tubes of hand cream, each containing 20% shea butter like L’Occitane. One contains Olive Oil, another Argan Oil and the third KuKui Nut Oil from Hawaii’s state tree (the Kukui, or Candlenut), contains linoleic acid, which has anti-inflammatory and moisturizing properties. The creams are extremely rich and moisturizing. They really sink into the skin leaving my hands feeling silky smooth but never greasy. They have a light scent which is not overwhelming and wears off fast.
I’ve been using them for almost a week and my hands love it. My cracks are already healed and my hands feel super soft. It performs just as well as the L’Occitane Cream for less than a 1/4 of the cost per tube. Now that’s what I call winning. The Ultra Moisturizing Hand Cream Trio is only available for a limited time so find it in a Trader Joe’s near you before it’s gone. I’m going to snatch up a few more sets for myself and Christmas gifts and I’m so impressed that I think I’ll try some more beauty products from Trader Joe’s as well.
