We may be in the middle of March, but harsh winter weather shows no sign of letting up. Dry, re-circulated air, blustery winds and those cold cold temperatures wreak havoc on our skin. Our hands are especially vulnerable, they’re our connection to the world, so it’s important to take care of them in these terrible times. Enter The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector, a superhero in the fight against dry, chapped and sad winter hands.
Let’s work from the outside in here. I’m a sucker for cool packaging, and the metallic tube is just sleek, and dare I say masculine enough to make me feel cool about carrying it around with me in my purse. I can’t stand overly girly packaging, so that’s a big win for me right away. Next, the scent. An overly smelly hand cream is intolerable, and that’s not what you get with Hemp Hand protector. A kind of medicinal, clean fragrance is what you smell, but not for long, after a few minutes the smell dissapates, and all your left with is soft, gorgeous hands. The cream is fairly thick – use it sparingly, you really don’t need more than a dime sized dab. It’s a bit greasy at first, but once the lotion sinks into your skin you’re left with visibly andtangibly softer, smoother and even younger looking hands. I swear, I have hand model hands now, and it’s all thanks to Hemp Hand protector! And for the eco-conscious among us, the Body shope uses hemp plants grown in England, and produced by small scale family farmers using traditional methods. It’s Community Fair Trade hemp oil, so you can feel good about your hands feeling good.
No wonder it’s the Body Shop’s number one selling product here in Canada; Canandians know cold weather, and dry skin, and need an ally in the battle against both, and that’s Hemp Hand Protector. Winter may finally be wrapping up, but you should still get yourself some of this today, and enjoy year round beautiful, soft hands.
