I love decking up my nails with different nail art designs . No matter how much hard work I put in to create a perfect clean finish it is not going to look great until I have youthful well moisturized hands. Most of us are indulged in household works that often require us to dip our hands in water and other chemical laced products (detergents etc.) In due course of time, all these practices spoil our hands by making them coarse, hard and dry. We need to provide our hands enough moisture that can beat out the harmful attacks of chemicals and maintain the suppleness of hands. In order to restore my hands’ softness I have been looking for an effective hand cream for long. When I got to know about The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector, I bought it without any second thought.
Over to TBS:
“Our Hemp Seed Oil is grown in the rich fens of Norfolk, England, and is produced by our Community Fair Trade expert distiller, Norfolk Essential Oils. It is a hard working moisturizer with community fair trade hemp seed oil.“
My Take on ‘The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector’
As the name says this hand cream encompasses hemp seed oil, which further contains amino acids and proteins in abundant. These are believed to provide hydration and restore moisture. The cream is light green in color, and has a semi thick consistency. Due to the consistency this cream is perfect for hand massage – it is neither too heavy nor too runny.
Just a pea size quantity is required for one time use that makes the expensive tube long lasting . It gets absorbed into the skin quickly but not completely. Usually, whenever I apply this hand protector cream my palms become sweaty for a while but unlike other hand creams this one does not leave a greasy trail behind.
I was recommended (by SA) to use this cream after every hand wash but as the packaging is not travel friendly so I make it a point to apply it at bedtime. After each application my hands feel moisturized and soft, and look youthful. But to see the long term effect it requires patience and continuity . And to maintain that continuity one has to overlook its awful smell. Yes, it has a pungent medicinal kind of smell that is very bothersome. If you have sensitive nose you might like to cover your hands in a pair of gloves.
TBS hemp hand protector comes in a metallic (not that sturdy) tube. Because of the sharp corners at the crimp I feel little uncomfortable to put it in my handbag. Metallic packaging is not much of an issue until the tube has enough quantity to support quick run out. But when you reach that breakpoint where in you have to bend the tube to get every last bit of the cream, just be careful as bending cuts holes, which lead to more wastage.
