The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream Review
Hope you ladies are as awesome as always. You know what; I always feel that the most ignored part of our body is our hands which do most of the work. So, I make sure that I give them proper nourishment so that they keep looking young and beautiful. That is why I have picked up The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream for my today’s review. This is the first ever hand cream that I’m using. Before this I used to apply same moisturizer or a lotion which I used to apply on my face. Let’s see how it performs.
And yes do check out the review on The Body Shop Rainforest Nutrition Conditioner. Amazing product for dry and dull hair.
The hand cream looks attractive in its strawberry colored packing. It claims to have cold pressed strawberry seed oil and thus would soften the hands. It gives proper hydration to the skin on the hands. For some reason I feel that the skin on my hands is extra dry and thus it needs a cream which is highly hydrating and I think this cream is doing a fair job in that regard.
Direction for Use
You just need to take a pea size quantity of the cream in your hands and then rub both the hands against each other. Keeping rubbing your hands, till it completely absorbs in the skin. It would take about a minute of rubbing to completely blend into the skin.
Price & Quantity
Rs. 350 for 30 ml. The quantity is considerable. I use it at least 3 to 4 times a day and it has been more than a month since I have been using it. So I think the quantity is good.
It is meant for dry skin. I don’t think it would work well for oily skin because it is quite hydrating.
The product comes packed in a beautiful pink colored squeezy tube with a black color cap. The tube is compact and thus you can easily carry it in your handbag.
The hand cream has got strawberry seed oil in it. It has a smooth texture which is pale pink in color. It gives a very greasy feeling on application. You can feel the seeds of strawberry while applying it on your hands.

My Experience with The Body Shop Strawberry Hand cream
I had not tried any other hand cream before trying The Body Shop Strawberry hand Cream. But, I am very much sure that even if I would have tried, this would have topped my list. The best thing about the cream is its smell. When I decided to pick it up, I was attracted the most by its fruity smell. It is really refreshing. Talking about the performance of the cream, I think it does a pretty good job. It hydrates the skin as much as it should be. The price is also not so much being a Body Shop product. So, overall the cream is really good.
Whether I would recommend this product again:
Yes, for sure I would recommend it to others. A must keep in your hand bag.
