Tocca Hand Cream in Cleopatra - review


I was given this little hand cream trio for Christmas and I've almost finished the Florence version (reviewed here), so I decided to use the last bits of that tube as a body cream and move the next tube into circulation.

I'm doing this because it's getting to the point where Florence is hard to squeeze out (annoying), so it's time to cut that tube open and use every last drop. Plus I wanted to open something new!

This little set was given to me as a stocking stuffer for Christmas (yes, I asked for it), and I was thrilled to see that Santa had answered the call. It's so beautifully presented that I almost didn't want to open it, but I'm glad I did because the creams are divine.

As you can see, the set includes three creams based on some of Tocca's fragrances: Stella (Italian Blood Orange), Cleopatra (Grapefruit & Cucumber) and Florence (Bergamot & Gardenia).

This review will look at the Cleopatra hand cream, but I'll eventually review each cream in turn and the set as a whole.

Tocca claims/product details:
  • A selection of exquisite hand creams delicately perfumed with TOCCA's best-selling fragrances
  • Enriched with a blend of shea butter, avocado oil and aloe, these luxurious hand creams will soothe and nourish tired, dry hands
  • Delicately scented, the set includes 30ml each of: Cleopatra (a fresh blend of sweet grapefruit and cucumber), Florence (a subtle bergamot and gardenia combination) and Stella (zesty Italian Blood Orange)
  • RRP $22 AUD for the set


I have to say, $22 is a bargain for a set of hand creams like this. It will last me at least a year, and each cream smells divine and they all give me a lift whenever I use them.

Cleopatra is a white cream with a velvety texture that's medium thick and feels lovely on the skin. It smells fresh, complex and light, and while I don't like the Cleopatra fragrance, I do love the scent of this cream.

This little tube is a great purse size, and I wouldn't want anything larger than a 30ml hand cream because I get bored of things all too easily and want to move on to something else.

I've been through a lot of hand cream lately (having a baby will do that), in part because my husband steals mine - I should really start hiding the good ones ; ) This one is beyond divine and I've given it an HG tag because few hand creams give a beautiful scent that lingers for ages, but this one does.

A little goes a long way and it leaves my hands feeling silky but not greasy. The effect lasts a while and I need to use less of this than I do other hand creams - both when it comes to putting it on (you only need a small amount) and also in terms of how many times I need to reapply throughout the day (only twice daily applications of this one).

Awesome. I can't wait to try the Stella version, particularly because I own that fragrance and love it.
