The Body Shop Hand Cream (Shea and Mango)

If there's one product I can't live without during winter, it's The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector. It's my favorite hand cream for those harsh Canadian winters! But like I already said in the past, I'm not a huge fan of the scent. I was so excited when I saw that The Body Shop came out with more hand creams in a few differents scents!

(Vous parlez français? Cliquez ici!)

This hand cream is like a gel-cream, the texture is very different than their Hemp Hand Protector which is like a thick paste. It also sink into the skin much faster so it's the perfect hand cream to use during the day. However, it's less moisturizing than the Hemp cream so if your hands are super dry it might not be enough for you. At this time of the year though, this cream is perfect for me!

I own 2 scents, Shea and Mango. Shea has quite a strong scent (to me it smells like men's cologne) so if you don't like strong scents you might want to try a fruity scent instead like Mango which is fruity but not too sweet.

  1. Uggh. I can't believe how perfect your photos always are! <3

    I'm also pretty shocked that these have no silicones in them -- I'm used to all hand creams just being loaded with dimethicone, so this ingredients list is a pretty big shock! I will have to check these out when I run out of Weleda Skin Food.... but in their satsuma scent, of course ;) I'm still convinced that it's the most mouthwatering orange scent that anyone will ever come up with!

    1. Awww thank you! :)

      I haven't even noticed that they doesn't contain silicones, but I usually don't mind some silicones in my beauty products! Are you allergic to silicones?
