My skin on the hands is extremely dry and tends to get worse by washing them frequently which usually happens. I keep a couple of hand creams handy, one in all my bags, and at least one at home. Today I am going to review the product which I had used before but never reviewed. This time I am going to and that is The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector! 🙂
About The Looks!
The original hand cream comes in a different packaging than this one. This was a Limited Edition packaging part of The Body Shop’s #CommitToChange campaign. The limited edition one comes in a silver metal squeezy tube packaging. The front has the word “Change” printed in a very unique and colorful format. The front also has the name of the brand and the product with the quantity printed. The back of the tube has ingredients, price, shelf life and other information. I like this packaging and I can see what the brand was trying to do. They have kept everything as simple as it can be just to highlight the word of their campaign which is “Change“. Pretty smart and good!
The normal or usual or original packaging is also a silver metal squeezy tube, however, the difference being the absence of the word “Change” in place of which is the name of the product printed with a green backdrop having hemp plant’s picture. The bottom part has the black background with the same information as above but in a different language.

My thoughts and views about the hemp hand protector!
It is a light green cream which has a strong scent of some greens or plants, it must be hemp. I have no idea about how hemp smells but this might be like it! The cream is very rich and thick. It has a pretty creamy texture to it. Its not light its really nourishing. Its not heavily greasy but the creaminess stays on the hands for a while. I like to use it at bedtime which will allow it to work overnight and treat the dry skin.
Well, does it really works? Yes! It does. Because of its richness I don’t want to wash my hands after applying this so this is the last thing I use before going to bed and keeping it overnight on a daily basis made my hands skin so soft and smooth that I was really happy about! In the morning the creaminess was gone but the hands looked well fed or well nourished! It also works on the dry finger tips and the skin around your nails which get flaky and start coming off. After a few days of using it, those dry skin flakes were gone! The scent is not the best I would say, I have no issues with it but I would have preferred a pleasant one. I don’t think that would be a deterrent and I would surely repurchase the product. Some of you might even love this scent, who knows! 😀
