Bella Review: A Moisturiser That's Thrice as Nice

It's only natural to give an eyebrow raise to any moisturiser that claims to be suitable for your hands, body, and face. But L'Occitane's Bonne Mère Gentle Cream ($26) actually does its job. The silky cream smooths onto skin and dries in no time at all, leaving behind zero greasy residue. And the scents aren't overwhelming, either. Bonne Mère comes in both milk and honey varieties, fragrances which are sweet without being cloying. And while the packaging says it's suitable for all skin types, those with oily skin may want to scale back on their application; the cream is quite hydrating, which can give shiny faces a bit too much moisture. And if you can't find the land of milk and honey, L'Occitane's latest may be the next best thing.
