The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector /// Beauty Review

the body shop hemp hand protector review
Hi Lovelies
I just love skincare products especially hand care products, my usual go to hand cream is Soap and Glory hand food but since its now empty I needed a change. Seeing as it had  been far too long ago since I last went to the body shop I decided to try a hand cream  from them for a change.  I have never tried any hemp products before but I have heard positive things about hemp infused beauty products.

The Body Shop is a well know house hold name, my nana used to take when I was a child and she used to always get bits and bobs in there every time she went, the trend must of rubbed onto me because some of my favourite products come from there including skincare, haircare and some of the perfumes too.

About Hemp 
Hemp is one of the worlds oldest crops which is originally from Europe and Asia and was used for food and medical purposes. Oil from hemp is very hydrating and comes from a variety called Finola.

First things first I love the design on this  cream, it simple easy to read, I really think the green and the silver compliment each other perfectly. The cream its self surprised me because its a lot thicker then the usual hand creams I have tried before, so with knowing that I only applied a pea sized amount on my hand and thankfully I did because that was enough to cover both of my hands. 

The cream is non greasy and dries very quickly leaving hands feeling every soft and smelling very nice too, its a very unique smell which is the best way I could describe it being is herby with a hint of spice which is little bit like nutmeg. 

My Thoughts 
I am so happy that I bought this cream and I pretty sure I will be buying this again in the future because I just love the way it sinks into the skin and leaves them feeling very soft. Its very good size to carry in your handbag and also comes in a larger size of 100ml.

9/10 I love everything about the cream but I am not so keen on the way it squeeze out the tube as it can be awkward getting it all even but apart from that is perfect and have nothing bad to say about it.

Have you tried  skincare products from the body shop before? if so what are your favourites

  1. I've been using this for years, I love it. I've really dry skin in general & I use the body moisturiser as well. It's one of the few body moisturiser that I don't have to apply after every shower.

    I've been using the hand cream for ages! It was actually my mum who recommended it to me because my hands get dry so quickly. It's really interesting to find out how versatile Hemp is and how it can be used in so many different ways.

    My handcream is nearly finishing off too! I think i am gonna go buy this one! Washing the dishes cracks my hands like anything. This hand cream sounds perfect!

    I love trying out different handcreams, I work for the NHS and am always washing and gelling my hands, so they get so dry.

    Love this product but I don't love the packaging too much from a user perspective.

    1. Understandable, it could be a lot better

    I love The Body Shop products but like you have not tried them in a while now. Loving the look of this hand cream.

    my hands are normally overused so they deserved some soft treatment. I better check this hemp hand protector.
