In Detail The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream Review, Swatches and My Experience
The hand cream comes in a red tube packaging with a black screw cap. The tube packaging is of good quality, so you can definitely take it with you wherever you travel.
The tube has all the information regarding the hand cream printed on the back as well as on the front of the packaging. The tube is very cute tiny and compact which looks really handy and I love. The one I have is the 30 mL variant. They have bigger size available as I saw in one of the body shop stores.
The strawberry hand cream is a very pale pinkish in color and contains cold-pressed strawberry seed oil. It gives it the most amazing fresh strawberry scent which I love as well as shea butter which helps bring moisture back into your hands.
It is nicely whipped and has a very smooth satiny texture which spreads easily on my hands. The Body Shop also claims that their hand cream is light non-greasy which leaves your hands feeling softer and smoother which is very true.
This hand cream is little bit more moisturising than my Nivea Soft Hand Cream which is meant for winter season or very dry hands. As I wash my hands frequently my hands becomes very dry so I need to apply this every now and then.
I need just a pea size amount of the cream and apply it all over my hands especially on my palms as that area becomes very dry and flaky. It gives me the right amount of moisturisation without making my hands greasy or oily.
It gets absorbed instantly and hands feel soft and fresh. Also the fragrance lingers for about 3 to 4 hours in a AC environment and vanishes very quickly whenever I go out applying this.

Overall, I like Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream, as it gives me protection from dryness for more then 3 hours. I like the texture and also the fragrance of the hand cream, which smells heavenly like fresh strawberries.
Also it is more affordable, considering it’s from The Body Shop whose products are hell expensive sometimes.
