If you are not bothered about products having natural ingredients then this is an effective hand cream but I feel that as Body Shop made its name of the fact they make natural products and don't test on animals that they should be a bit more open about their ingredients

User Reviews

Strongest points
Smells lovely if you like almonds and very effective at protecting the skin of your hands
Weakest points
Body shop do have some very questionable ingredients in this and indeed their other hand creams. Not exactly natural
Summary
A nice smelling effective hand cream but don't be disillusioned - it is not all natural

Strongest points
The product looks lovely and actually works well - a rarity these days I know. It's in a tube so easy to use and is good value compared to the premium brands.
Weakest points
It feels a bit oily going on so takes some massaging of your hands before it's all absorbed. The smell takes a bit of getting used to but wears off quickly.
Summary
I suffer from temporary dry rough skin on my hands and Body Shop products were recommended to me. I tried this and it hasn't let me down, so all-in-all a good buy.

I love the smell of this cream. Another fab product from the body shop range. Can be slightly greasy, but this isn't a problem as I usually apply it before bed. It relieves my dry skin, especially in the winter. Moisturising and luxurious.

Love the smell of this so much! I love all the body shop hand moisturiser because they're very creamy and moisturising. They can be a bit greasy on the skin, especially the hemp scented one but they're really good for using under cotton moisturising gloves.
Weakest points
Metal tube is hard to get all the product out
