Hemp Hand Protector - The Body Shop

The Body Shop
Hemp Hand Cream - £3.50
Since blogging I have discovered more and more incredible products from The Body Shop, I was always a fan but now their products feature heavily in my routines.
I was recently sent the Hemp Hand Protector and couldn't wait to try it out, this is The Body Shops best selling hand cream, I had heard other people really rate this hand cream so I had high hopes. What you initially notice about this product is the packaging, it's in a foil type tube which I quite like, it's a little like the Cath Kidson hand creams you can pick up. It's easy to apply and stays clean which is another thing I really like, nothing worse than when it clogs up around the top!
The actual hand cream itself it extremely creamy and not at all runny, I really enjoy this thick texture as you can really work it into your hands and any particular dry patches. The reason it works so well is because it contains hemp seed oil, my skin absolutely loves this oil, it sinks right in leaving my hands feeling supple and soft.
The smell is a little unusually, it's not unpleasing, but actually quite unscented. I have used this product for the last week now and I have noticed hands are softer and less hard around the nail.
Overall I would absolutely recommend this hand cream, I would go as far to say its probably one of the best hand creams I have ever used. Please check it out on The Body Shops website, its currently on offer for an amazing £3.50.

  3. Thanks for this review! I've been wanting to try this product for a while because my hands feel like they took a trip across the Sahara! The "hemp" part concerned me, but now at least I know my hands won't smell like reefer! lol
