Hi everyone, today I am going to do the Body Shop Hemp Moisturizing Hand Wash Review. My profession requires me to wash my hand every 10 minutes or may be less. So I often look for a hand wash which is moisturising specially when I am at home. I kid you guys not, have been using this baby since my college days and repurchased it over and over again. I always wanted to review it but because it sits in my bathroom, I just get lazy to bring it out and click pictures. Today I finished this bottle and I am finally writing this review.

In Detail The Body Shop Hemp Moisturizing Hand Wash Review and My Experience
The product comes in a very basic TBS tall bottle with a pump dispenser. Its got all the details about the product on the outer labels. The pump also has a push-rotate-lock mechanism in case you want to travel with it. Because the bottle is transparent, I will always know how much of the product is left inside the bottle.
The consistency of the hand wash is pretty much in between a cream and gel. It lathers up fairly well. Hemp hand wash smells pretty sweet and herbal which I love. The smell in fact is pretty similar to the other products in the “TBS Hemp” range.
This is my most trusted hand wash to keep my hands soft and moisturised. Since I always prefer a moisturising hand wash at home, this has been my goto for years. For the price, its a pretty good quantity and it does last me for about 2 months.
So if you are looking for a hand wash which is not too drying and actually conditions the skin, try this one. Its specially suitable for ladies with dry skin or ladies like myself who wash their hands multiple times in a day.
PROs of The Body Shop Hemp Moisturizing Hand Wash
1. Transparent bottle with a pump dispenser.
2. Smell is herbal, mild and soothing.
3. Cleans the hands properly since it has anti bacterial agents in it.
4. Keeps the hands moisturised, does not dry the skin out.
5. Over a period of time, hands would seem softer.
6. TBS does not test on animals.
CONs of The Body Shop Hemp Moisturizing Hand Wash
1. Not a medical grade cleanser. So I am not sure if this is going to render proper “sterility” to the skin.
1. If you have dry hands, always use a moisturiser or a hand cream at night before sleeping.
2. Try to use moisturising hand washes like this one while you are at home. It does make a difference over a period of time in making the skin softer.
3. If you feel like this costs a little bit more, grab it during TBS sale season which is twice a year.
