L’Occitane x Rifle Paper Co.

January 21, 2018

I think of my mom every time I see L’Occitane. She keeps this hand cream in her purse at all times, because it’s the only thing that works well but doesn’t smell too strong. Also this hand cream has been a lifesaver this winter because I”ve had some dryyy hands!! When I saw L’Occitane’s collaboration with Rifle Paper Co. it felt like it was made for me.…
