L’occitane Hand Cream Mini in Shea Butter
Yes, you love the smell of your vanilla hand cream, but your seatmate? Maybe ... not so much. Shea butter is virtually smell-free but extra hydrating. You also get the deeply moisturizing proprieties of coconut oil, honey, and marshmallow extract while still being conscious of those around you. It’s a win-win.
