Just wanted to do a quick post on one of my favourite hand treatments of the moment - The Body Shop Hemp Intensive Hand Butter (hubby bought me this for Christmas). I love the Hemp Hand Protector so was eager to try this out.
The Hemp Hand Butter contains Community Fair Trade hemp seed oil and is suitable for very dry skin. If your hands aren't drying out at this time of year (especially with the extended cold snap) you're very lucky. Mine are dry, sensitive, prone to itchiness where the skin cracks from time to time and have a tendency to look like proper 'older lady' hands if I don't moisturise them regularly and appropriately.
I like to use my Hemp Hand Protector treatment last thing at night for an extra boost but I know some of my friends find it a tad potent and the smell a little overpowering - this one's for you lot! I'm finding the Hemp Hand Butter much more user friendly throughout the day as it's non greasy and absorbs easily. A lot of standard hand creams just don't cut it for me at this time of year but I've found this to be effective at moisturising, soothing and hydrating. It still has the clean, almost medicinal aroma associated with The Body Shop Hemp range but is far more of a lighter and subtle scent.
Lovely product and I will re-purchase - it retails at £11.00/100ml but I got mine with 40% off so will wait for a similar offer (you know I like my offers!) - also want to try the foot butter at some stage! You can check out the full range of Hemp products from The Body Shop here.
