Strawberry Hand Cram, Is It Good?


Hello it’s G,

I love moisturizers and body butters A LOT! Especially the ones The Body Shop has but I was disappointed with their Strawberry Hand cream.

They said that the cream is light, non-greasy, leaves a smooth silky feeling, small in size, and nourishes hands.

Here is the product description they have on their website:

“”Keep skin soft and smooth with ultra-creamy Strawberry Hand Cream. This daily hand cream is perfect for on-the-go hydration and is the ultimate hand-bag must-have! Infused with the scent of fruity strawberry, the light, gel-cream formula absorbs quickly, helping to soften and protect the hands.

  • Hand cream

  • Light, non-greasy texture
  • Leaves hands feeling softer and smoother
  • Hands and cuticles will be left feeling silky soft
  • Convenient travel size
  • Cold-pressed strawberry seed oil
  • Community Trade shea from Ghana”

strawberry-hand-cream-1-640x640Personally, I think that the scent is lovely. P.S I like fruity smells. But I should warn you the smell is very rich strawberry scent. So, if you are not into fruity scents you might not like this smell.

What I liked about the cream is that it doesn’t have a greasy texture. I love that it leaves a silky-soft feel on your hand but only right after you apply it. Also, it is small which makes it great for travel.

Unfortunately for me the cream did not nourish my hands. I have a dry skin and my skin absorbed it fast and didn’t get moisturized very good. I like the fact that it is small and I can carry it with me everywhere, but I don’t like having to apply hand cream every hour. I also don’t like that it is very light, like watery-light. I prefer my lotions to be a bit thicker than that.

So, The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream was not the right Clique for me and didn’t leave me feeling Halo.

But, if you like very light fruity smell type of hand lotions, this is probably a good Clique for you, though you should keep in mind that it might not moisturize as you expect it to. But if you have a dry skin like mine or a skin that requires a heavy moisturizer I LOVE LOVE LOVE to share that this cream won’t be enough, it is better to get body butter instead. The body butter I would recommend is their Almond Body butter or their Moringa Body Butter. They are two of my favorite body butters and I’ll be writing a review about them soon.
