I had to have it! Laura Mercier Almond Coconut Milk Hand Crème

I didn’t need it, but I had to have it! And now it’s mine! All mine!

Almond Coconut Milk Hand Crème
Blurb: Laura Mercier Hand Crème is a deep penetrating creme that leaves the skin velvety soft to ensure the healthiest & smoothest hands. Grape & Olive Oils soften & moisturize. Soy proteins rich in amino acids help in the repair process. Almond Coconut Milk is a warm fragrance rich with powdered sugar, vanilla extract and a hint of cinnamon. Includes notes of vanilla mousse as well as vanilla meringue. Replenishes & locks in moisture into the skin. Formulated for all skin types.

I was in Sephora on critical ifp business (aka: snooping around) when I opened up a tester of this crème and sniffed. Then I nearly fainted dead away right there in the aisle. I could not believe how amazing it smelled! Coconuty-almondy-vanillaey-desertey unbelievable yumminess. If you don’t believe me, go to Sephora (or a nice department store), take a whiff, and just see if you can keep from falling into a swoon.

This fragrance is also available in (brace yourself) Souflé Body Crème, Creme Body Wash and Honey Bath. Other mind-numbingly delicious fragrances include Crème Brulee and French Vanilla. For the love of God, Laura Mercier, show us some mercy!

Oh yeah, it made my skin really soft. It’s Laura Mercier, it’s full of quality ingredients, blah, blah, blah. Who cares? It smells soooooo good! (Actually, I really should point out that both the fragrance and softness really last. I put it on in the evening and the next morning, there was plenty of coconut-almondyness.)

Enough said - go get one now (because you can’t have mine)!


  1. OMG, you're always up on the good stuff!! I was going to buy this during a recent Sephora visit too but wanted the body creme instead of the hand lotion and they didn't have it:( These scents are so divine...maybe I'll ask the bf to get it for me for X-mas.

  2. Yeah, now I am DYING for that body creme. Although, I have to say the hand creme is lasting pretty well, so it's tiding me over. I don't know if I can make it until Christmas, though.

  3. I saw it in Macy's a while back but I was too cheap to buy it:(

  4. Well I don't know if you were cheap or sensible. I just have no willpower!

  5. Both! I'm starting to lose my willpower!

  6. Lol - at least you started out with some!
