L'Occitane One-Minute Manicure Hand and Nail Care Duo

Description
What is it: Treat your hands to a decadent manicure with these two quick steps designed to revive and hydrate.

The One-Minute Hand Scrub has been specially formulated to reveal incredibly soft hands in one minute. Its bi-phase formula consists of brown exfoliating sugar to gently scrub and eliminate dead skin cells, and an oily phase--shea, sweet almond, and grape seed oils--to help soften and nourish hands.

The Cuticle & Nail Cream contains 30% shea butter, plus the softening agents of myrrh essential oil and honey to reinforce the nails and soften the cuticles. With regular use, the dry skin around the nail disappears. Smooth this nourishing cream over your cuticles and nails to improve the appearance of your hands.

Who is it for: Men and women of all skin types.

Why is it different: A simple and relaxing routine to rejuvenate tired hands, the One-Minute Hand Scrub contains sugars and shea oil that work together to gently exfoliate dry hands and cuticles.

The Cuticle & Nail Cream contains shea butter, antioxidizing carrot oil, softening honey, and myrrh essential oil to nourish and protect the nail bed. Perfect for women who want to touch up their manicure and perfect for men as a stand-alone manicure.

How do I use it: For the One-Minute Hand Scrub, mix the formula with the spatula. Apply to dry hands and massage delicately, focusing on cuticles. Rinse thoroughly.

For the Cuticle & Nail Cream, apply with a cuticle stick to the edge of nails. Massage gently in circular motions. Allow the cream to penetrate, and push back cuticles with cuticle stick.

Questions?

What exactly is an organic ingredient?

An organic ingredient is one that is derived from organic agriculture and which, under European legislation that took effect in 1991, must comply with certain basis rules, including:

  • Respecting the ecosystem by using cultivation and breeding methods that strive to maintain natural balances.
  • Using no genetically modified organisms (CMOs).
  • Mandatory inspection by an organic certification body — this applies to both the procedures and processors of organic products.
  • Traceability back to the source area of the plant, whatever the country of production. In parallel, on an international scale, the NOP (National Organic Program) regulation were introduced in the United States in 2002, while the JAS (Japan Agricultural Standard) was introduced in Japan in 2000.

What exactly is an organic beauty product?

An organic beauty product must comply with more stringent standards than the conventional regulations on cosmetic products. These standards guarantee respect for the environment throughout the production chain, respect for the consumer, and a positive emphasis on the natural substances of superior ecological quality. Our organic cosmetic products comply with the specifications of Ecocert, which has produced a list of authorized ingredients and insists on:

  • A minimum of 95% natural ingredients or ingredients of natural origin
  • A minimum of 95% of the total plant ingredients certified organic
  • A minimum of 10% of the total ingredients certified organic
  • Synthetic fragrances or colorants, silicones and mineral oils are not permitted. Only certain essential synthetic ingredients are authorized when no natural alternative is available.

Why doesnt L'Occitane make all of its beauty products organic?

Our approach to organic beauty products is a realistic one. We would like to develop this offering in collaboration with Ecocert, while also taking into account existing constraints; the availability of resources from organic agriculture, the ability to maintain a products cosmetic and sensory qualities, and obtaining the most effective formula. Suffice it to say, our entire product range will always live up to the highest standards in terms of quality and naturalness.

Are L'Occitane products safe for the skin?

Yes. The rules that govern our products on a European and international level are very strict and continually updated to reflect the latest scientific developments. Moreover, for every new product launched, we provide a very complete safety file. We systematically conduct tests to ensure that our products are gentle on the skin: skin irritation tests for our skincare or hygiene products; eye irritation tests for products aimed at the eye area; use tests lasting several weeks under the supervision of dermatologists and/or op ophthalmologists for face care products. All tests are carried out by independent laboratories approved by the Ministry of Health.

Are your products effective on the skin?

Yes. Before active ingredients are used in a product, we test their effectiveness, and the results of our research are patented. Once a formula has been developed, we evaluate is effectiveness through in vitro tests or tests for face care formulas.

Do you use recyclable packaging?

Our concern for the environment has lad to the use of environmentally friendly packaging and a minimum amount of unnecessary packing material. We also encourage our customers to recycle their packaging in order to:

  • Save on natural resources by reusing waste, with the aim of recovering reusable materials or energy.
  • Reduce the amount of landfilled or incinerate waste

SCRUB is great, Cuticle cream is not The one-minute manicure scrub is divine! My hands are still smooth tonight after using it around noon time. The cuticle cream is coming out as water, as some of the other reviews suggested. I tried shaking it and pushing on the tube to mix the contents, but water kept coming out. I attempted to empty all the water and felt like I was wasting product. With about 75% of the tube full, it is finally coming out like cream but I am not sold. I am keeping it for the scrub but next time will find a place to order separately. 04-17-12
Scrub is great, cuticle cream not so much... The scrub is very moisturizing, and quite a treat! The cuticle creme has potential, but the tube disperses water, (quite strange), as previous reviewer indicated, it might be beyond it's freshness. 03-15-12
Best and Worst The hand scrub is amazing, but my cuticle cream was just water. I shook it and shook it, trying to mix it in the tube, but only a clear liquid comes out. Perhaps, it is past its shelf life or separated or something. 03-13-12
Fantastic!! I have been using this cream for years and absolutely love it! The one minute hand scrub is just amazing! I highly recommend these products for everyone. 03-08-12
Great I have used the cuticle cream for years and the one-minute hand scrub for a few months. I can't recommend them highly enough. They are everything you need for soft, smooth hands and cuticles. Pure luxury. 03-06-12
