The Body Shop: Almond Hand & Nail Cream: A Review

The Body Shop: Almond Hand & Nail Cream: A Review

As you get older, it's no secret that your hands can show the first tell tail signs of ageing! So it's important to keep them happy and healthy, especially during these cold winter months! The best way to prevent these early signs of ageing is keeping your mitts soft and hydrated. So I carry hand cream with me everywhere and apply copious amounts during the day! So needless to say, I go though hand creams like hot dinners! Which can be a rather expensive habit! 

A Couple of weeks before Christmas, The body shop had a promotion on their hand creams. Offering the larger 100ml tube for £5, rather than the usual £10. Obviously I couldn't resist and nabbed a tube. 

Firstly, I love the packaging of The Body Shop's hand cream. I know it's not to everyone's taste, but I the metal toothpaste-shaped-tube extremely tactile and nice to hold. It also allows you to squeeze out every drop of prodcut! 

Their hand cream comes in a range of scents and ingredients, the one I chose was the Almond hand & nail one which is suitable of all skin types. Simply, I chose it cause it smelt the best; sweet, rich and creamy. Although the hand cream worked just fine to keep my hands hydrated and soft, I wasn't that 'wow-ed' by its performance. The formulation is a little thin and leaves a irritating greasy residue on my hands. 

I am yet to try the other hand creams, as I do on the whole love The Body Shop Products. But I certainly wont be in a hurry to repurchase this one.
