Taking side by side L’Occitane and Crabtree&Evelyn brings a constant, timeless, endless “battle”-the French against the Americans.

So, L’Occitane en Provence brings the tradition of French luxurious beauty, whilst Crabtree&Evelyn gives the new, modern vibe of an American product. Even though the American beauty brand bankrupt a few years ago, it has recovered from it and tries to keep up the pace with the other famous beauty lines.

None of these two brands is BBB accredited, but this hasn’t stopped them from getting all kinds of awards for their beauty products.

When you go online, you can see that L’Occitane is more active in social media, and Crabtree&Evelyn is also on Pinterest. On Facebook though, the likes of the French brand are almost three times more.

L’Occitane is even on Youtube.

If you want to go shopping online from the official websites, most of the credit cards are accepted and both sites are secure and haven’t encountered any situations in the last three months.

When it comes to the return policy, L’Occitane takes its purchase back unopened within 14 days (30 days from shops), while Crabtree&Evelyn accepts returns within 60 days  (with a copy of the receipt, unused products, original packaging and paperwork).

As it is an American brand, it seems that more than 60% of the visitors online for the Crabtree&Evelyn are Americans. The situation differs for L’Occitane, whom most visitors are from Japan.

Crabtree & Evelyn – Gardener’s Ultra-Moisturizing Hand Therapy Pump Vs. L’Occitane Shea Butter Hand Cream

 
   

For the dry, cracked hand skin, Crabtree&Evelyn gives you a hand cream that is very thick, soaks into the skin in few minute, but works great.

The hand cream from L’Occitane is also very thick as texture, needing only 30 seconds to get absorbed into the skin.

Both hand creams are not greasy and leave no film feeling when applied.

L’Occitane hand cream has a light scent, while the hand cream of Crabtree& Evelyn is strongly, but amazingly perfumed.

The hand cream of the French brand contains 20% Shea butter, whereas the American hand cream consists of extracts of calendula, clover and yarrow-hence the “garden” name.

L’Occitane hand cream is very moisturizing and may be used even in the dry, humid summer. Its healing powers make it an amazing product, which was also rewarded a few years ago.

The Crabtree&Evelyn hand cream is easier to use than L’Occitane, but the American cream comes in no refillable, no recyclable recipients (just like the French one, though).

Even though both hand creams are highly appreciated by the customers they are both considered to be pricey. They are almost the same price, but L’Occitane comes in a smaller weight.
