I am always on the lookout for a good hand cream .I went to Body shop to buy Radiance Vitamin C Face Wash but unfortunately it was out of stock that time and you see girls are like once they step into any shop they have to purchase something  and i am strong believer of this :) I had to purchase something so i quickly picked up this cream, i anyway wanted to add a good quality cream to my kitty so that was the only reason which made me bought this cream.

My Experience:

Like i told you that i wanted to add a good quality hand cream to my kitty and that was the sole reason to buy this. I actually had heard good reviews about The Body shop Hemp Hand cream which is specially formulated for dry skin but since this one was meant for both hands and nails and SA emphasized on this cream so i took this one.

Coming to claims: It does moisturize and keep your hands soft.I had purchased it during winters .My hands and feet starts cracking during winters and i have to constantly moisturize them throughout winters but i make it a habit to moisturize my hands during summers also.Its very important to keep hands well hydrated and moisturized .If we do not pay much attention to our hands they will age fast so i suggest before sleeping keep your entire body well moisturized.

Application:I use it normally during night time but after washing dishes my hands become so hard that at times i have to use it during day also .I just apply pea sized amount and the best thing is it is not greasy at all.I love its fragrance also.Its not overpowering .It keeps my hands soft but it has not done any good to my nails.Cuticles around my nails are dry and brittle. They tear easily so i expected it to manage my cuticles as well because this is what it is meant for. Anyway I didn't have any high expectations for this cream but it faired well.


  • Travel friendly packaging
  • Easily
  • Nice mild fragrance
  • Keeps skin soft and moisturized
  • It gets absorbed easily.
  • Attractive packaging
  •  I wish it had helped me with repair of my torn cuticles also.

I would not purchase this cream again.If you really want a good hand cream I would suggest Burt's Bee Hand salve.That's the best cream i have ever used .But if you still are "The body shop fan" and want to buy from their range go for Hemp cream .

 Rating: 3/5
