Beauty | The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector

The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector 100ml - £10.00
Long time, no see?! I know I haven't blogged in so long, but since starting Uni I would never have believed how busy I've been. It truly has been crazy, but I love it. Uni really has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. I'm constantly motivated and doing so much uni work and when I'm not studying I can't bare to look at a computer screen and I'm off out living my life, which is why I haven't blogged in almost a month, but I haven't left you! I'm just trying to blog when I can and get some quiet me time.

Throughout my travels as I travel to and from University in Oxford my hands are really effected from a combination of cold weather and the central heating on transport and in buildings. My hands were so dry that they would be incredibly sore, itchy and almost raw looking. It was a complete fluke that I stumbled upon The Body Shop's Hemp Hand Protector, and I haven't looked back.

Firstly with this product, if you're not aware of Hemp like I was then you'll find it very odd that there's the Cannabis logo on the front of the packaging. Hemp is sourced from Cannabis, but isn't illegal. It is the oil which is extracted out of the Hemp seeds which makes the hand cream so conditioning.

As you can see the hand protector is very thick compared to more hand creams which is why it is so ideal for those who suffer with dry hands. Most hand creams don't even touch the surface but this product does. If I use it in the morning I won't have to reapply the hand cream again till the next day, or possibly even the day after as that's how deep conditioning it is, and only a small amount is needed.

The only thing I would warn people about is the smell. It doesn't have a pleasant girly smell like most hand creams and some people even find it off putting, but because I know how good it works the smell doesn't put me off, and it soon wears off.

Stumbling across this hand protector has been my life saviour for this winter and I'd even go as far to say it's my holy grail, no other hand cream compares!

The Body Shop also sell a Hemp Lip Balm which I'm going to have to try if it's anything like the Hand Protector! Have you tried any products in the Hemp range by the Body Shop?
