I was excited to receive this as I had heard great testimonies to the Body Shop Hemp range. It is solid when cool but melts in heat. It certainly didn't make my eczema worse, which is a huge bonus but it didn't really hydrate the truly dry areas on my wrists. It was great to absorb on my good parts of my skin and is wonderful to use directly after a shower, on wet skin. Although the fragrance is not the nicest, when you compare it to other Body Shop products, it didn't smell awful after application. I have continued to use this as a top up to body lotions on dryer areas such as elbows and knees, after bathing, especially before I use fake tan! I feel that the packaging and the fragrance of this balm is more geared to male beauty, whether that is intentional or not and would therefore be tempted to gift this to my partner rather than buy it for myself.
Sounds good but does not live up to the hype...needs to be more absorbent whatever the weather.
