Review: The Body Shop - Wild Rose Hand Cream





Having obtained a voucher code for a free 30ml Hand Cream, I headed straight to The Body Shop at the end of last month. I opted for the Wild Rose Hand Cream, mainly because it had the prettiest colour on it! I didn't want to do my usual routine of hanging around in a shop deliberating for half an hour, so this was a good approach!

I wasn't actually expecting much from this product. I've used a lot of hand creams before and they're all pretty much the same. However, I was pleasantly surprised by this. It left my hands feeling silky soft after just one use. Also, unlike a lot of hand creams, I felt like this one actually got absorbed into my skin as opposed to sitting on it. Normally when I wash my hands, I can feel the hand cream slipping off like oil but, with this one, there was nothing. It was already fully absorbed into my skin. The effects are long-lasting as well.

When you first squeeze this out of the tube, it does look like the consistency will be quite thick. It is not at all though. It's extremely light and glides on smoothly.

This hand cream contains rosehip oil and has SPF15The smell is quite strong so you'll love this if you're into floral smells. Otherwise, you'd be better off purchasing one of the other hand creams. I'm not a massive fan of floral smells when it comes to perfume, but I'm all for a bit of floral when it comes to beauty products!

I know that a lot of people love this packaging but I don't particularly like it. I'm sure that The Body Shop were aiming for a unique look when they designed this but it reminds me of a squashed toothpaste bottle.

Luckily, the product itself is fantastic so I would definitely consider purchasing this in the future. 

Have you tried any of the hand creams from The Body Shop?

  2. I have the Hemp Hand Protector from The Body Shop which is pretty good. This one sounds good but the rose scent puts me off! x

  4. I don't love this one unfortunately, as I don't find it hydrating enough and the smell is a little old lady for me, but I love the Hemp one.

  23. I've tried a lot of hand creams myself but the Neutrogena concentrated formula hand cream was the best one for my chapped eczema prone skin. I wouldn't mind trying out the body shop hand creams. I've always liked their body butters :)

    The tube look reminds me of l'occitane brand of creams.

  26. I love this hand cream, I found it really stopped my hands from getting cracked and sore last winter :) I'm using the almond version at the moment and am loving that too - I much prefer them in the little pots though!
