Today's review is about one of my favorite beauty items: hand cream. All too often our hands are neglected and in need of protection and hydration especially in the crisp winters season. I have terribly dry skin (other than my face which is, oh well, combination skin). Due to this I am constantly looking for specific hand care products because, if you have dry hands like mine you would know that normal moisturizing creams and lotions do not give you the best of moisture and nourishment as hand creams do. To be honest, to date if I have tried a hand cream from any beauty brand that has always been The Body Shop.
In the past I have used many of their hand creams from various The Body Shop's ranges. The range is extensive from floral to fresh, nutty and woody. The ones I have tried and loved previously include Wild Rose and Almond. This time I picked Wild Argan Oil Hand Cream. What caught my attention instantly was the travel size tube (30ml) which is smaller than the other regular size hand creams in The Body Shop range. I had not used any product from this range hence was so eager to try it out. The packaging is great! Its a soft tube, unlike the metallic tube of Almond Hand & Nail Cream or Wild Rose Hand Cream and Wild Rose Nourishing Hand Butter which sometimes produce sharp edges. The soft tube makes it so convenient to squeeze the product which the fear of it getting de-shaped.
The fragrance is fresh and alive, almost lifts your mood. The texture of this hand cream is rich and nourishing. It is enriched with Community Fair Trade Argan Oil from Morocco to help soften your hands and cuticles. Once you apply it on your hands, the experience takes you back to the traditional hammam body care ritual of 'golden radiance' in the comfort of your own home. I squeeze out a small amount onto my hands and massage gently until absorbed. My hands are left feeling soft and smooth without being greasy.
My verdict about The Body Shop's Wild Argan Oil Hand Cream: I would say it is not the most moisturize hand cream for me. If I have to pick the one which satisfied my dry hands it would be the Wild Rose Nourishing Hand Butter. Maybe the reason is that my hands need intensive moisture especially in this cold weather. Nevetheless, if you are someone with normal skin and in need of a basic hand cream, this is the one for you. It will not only keep your hand moisturized but also make it smell divine.
