The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector

Happy Monday everyone! I hope your week is off to a good start :)

Now that Autumn is officially here, and the cooler weather is on it's way, I'm in need of a good hand cream. The Body Shop's Hemp Hand Protector is one of the several hand creams I've been trying out, trying to find my holy grail product! The Hemp Hand Protector is packaged in a metal tube that is very user friendly since it makes it easy to squeeze every last drop of product out. I do like this packaging, but even after a few uses the tube already looks all creased and old.



This hand cream is very thick and creamy. I used it a bit in the summer, and I found it a little too heavy, but I think it will be great in the Fall and Winter. I get very, very dry, chapped hands, so I need something very moisturizing. This cream is made for very dry skin, as indicated on the packaging. The scent of this hand cream is quite strong, and I can see how people can either love it or hate it. I have gotten used to the scent, so it doesn't seem quite as strong anymore. This is a very green, herbally scent, so definitely test it out in a store before you purchase it. 


I do like this cream for an intensive surge of moisture, but it does take a minute or two to fully sink in. I like to use this when I'm at home, and I keep a lighter hand cream in my purse to use when I'm on the go. I'm also really loving Ahava's Mineral Hand Cream and Caudalie's Hand and Nail Cream, which are both a lot lighter than this one from The Body Shop.

The Body Shop always has great deals going on, I don't think I've ever bought something at full price there! So definitely wait for a sale or promotion before making a purchase :)

Have you used The Body Shop's Hemp Hand Protector? What are your thoughts on it? And what hand creams do you recommend? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments!

  1. I actually really like this hand cream but I do agree that its very greasy and takes a few mins to sink in. Other than that I think its really good! x
