NEW! Hand Cream Collection From The Body Shop

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you'll have spotted that I was recently sent lots of lovely new products from The Body Shop to try out. 
First up are two of their new handcreams in Shea and Honeymania

These are designed for those of us who are tired of greasy handcreams (which is all of us, I'd imagine) but still want a full-on moisturiser. Basically, the best of both worlds. We're not asking for much, are we?! 
Loaded with moisture-rich ingredients like Community Fair Trade Shea butter from Ghana and Community Fair Trade Honey from Ethiopia, these smell absolutely gorgeous as well as supporting the communities that produce these wonderful ingredients. As with all Body Shop products, these are obviously also cruelty-free. Hurrah!

But back to that smell; I'm not a huge honey fan so I didn't expect to love that one as much as I do but it's more floral with a hint of honey, if that makes sense and so it's a warm, comforting fragrance.

I've tried some of the brand's Shea range already and this fella is as lovely as they are so again, this is another delightful scent. 
I keep sniffing my hands like a lunatic. Luckily a back injury means I'm at home so no one can see me looking all crazy. The best thing for me though is that these are a light gel formula so as soon as I apply them, it absorbs quickly into my skin, without any trace on the surface; it's non-greasy and leaves my hands soft and smooth. Basically, I'm hooked. Being a nurse my hands are super dry so I'll be keeping one of these handy 30ml sizes in my pocket at all times from now on. 

You can also find these in Strawberry, Satsuma, Coconut, Pink Grapefruit and Moringa. Costing a tiny €5.95 each, I'll be stocking up on more for sure. T'would be rude not to!

What do we think ladies, do these sound like your type of thing?


  1. These sounds lovely, will be picking up the Moringa one for sure!
