The Body Shop: Almond Hand & Nail Cream

Here are my quick thoughts on the Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Cream. My hands get extremely dry throughout the day especially when I'm at work so I always have a hand cream in my bag... its a must! 

I decided I would try the Almond Hand & Nail Cream which retails at £5.00(30ml),however I got it free because I had a voucher from Christmas. The first thing I noticed was the packaging, it very much reminded me of the L'OCCITANE hand creams only this cream is much much cheaper! 

The almond in the cream smells absolutely gorgeous(I love almonds), however the consistency isn't great, its quite runny and I found it to be a little too oily for me. Its one of those creams where you end up wiping half of it off - therefore I wouldn't purchase it again unfortunately!

Burts Bees Almond Milk & Beeswax Hand Cream is next on my list after I've finished 'Waste Not Want Not' - the challenge.

  10. Hand creams are underrated I think, but so essential especially when its cold, so good to see a post on it, but will look for a different option than this when I next go on the hunt! Cheers x
