There were days when i never owned a hand cream.. there were days when everyone around me used to talk about dry hands.. brittle nails while i was busy reading study books and wondering what the fuss was all about?! Dry hands? I didnt ever have to deal with that misfortune.. i was blessed with beautiful super soft hands. I was never worried about them.. didnt give it a second thought and yes i was ever ready to shake hands and make a new friend. Well.. that was like maybe 10 years ago? 8? 5? Seems like ages. And now? Here i am looking for good hand creams.. checking for ingredients.. wondering what works best.. wondering if detergents are doing the harm.. too much of typing? sun damage? OR AM I JUST GROWING OLD! OMG! haha.. i dont mean to sound so scary but trust me.. dry hands? It is scary.. super annoying and something you would NOT want to deal with. I know you are happily looking at your beautiful hands and sighing 'THANK GOD' but i have to tell you.. if you are not going to look after your hands.. you will be feeling just like i am now. Ok maybe i am being a little too dramatic? Ok.. well actually the harsh weather.. household chores and YES i am growing old. LOL. These factors really effect hands.. and i had to find the BESTESTEST hand cream on this earth to deal with my situation.. and did i? Maybe not the BESTESTEST but Yes the best hand cream i have ever used is here below:
I did try a couple of hand creams before but just for review purposes.. i see something nice and want to try it. I wanted to use something nice smelling on my hands. Those were the reasons for buying the few hand creams i had owned. Then one day.. i just realised my hands were getting drier by the day.. a few painful spots.. and i am horrified. No handshakes everybody.. especially for Mr. Husband. Who kinda teased me saying my finger prints were all fading away. He was trying to be funny actually but the next day we were at The Body Shop at City Center looking at hand creams. Mr. Husband hates this sort of shopping but the punishment for commenting on my fingerprints were - Find me a good hand cream NOW. HAHA! So we ended up coming home holding 2 lovely hand creams from The Body Shop. This one and the Almond hand and nail cream which i will write about very soon. (THE SCENT IS SO DREAMY AWESOME) I didnt know which to choose. So i bought one for the day and one for night time. The Hemp Hand Protector is for night time obviously.
The texture of this cream is really thick and super creamy. Takes a little time to absorbed but it gets absorbed well and doesnt feel greasy at all. Your hands feel instantly soft and super moisturized!
A VERY medicine like scent.. not something you will love or fall in love with but its ok i guess.. you definitely might not hate it. Its not unbearable or anything. Its just that it is not girly or feminine in any way.
An amazing hand cream perfect for REALLY dry hands.. or if you want something good for your hands at night. Do try this out.. you will love it for sure. And yeah i wish it had a better scent but it doesnt really bother me much. So ladies remember start using your hand creams early so that you dont wake up one fine morning and totally freak out (like i did!).
