The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream

The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream


I recently picked up two hand creams from The Body Shop – Strawberry and Moringa. Since it’s summer here and the climate is quite warm and humid, I wanted something with light consistency. Since both of these are gel based and non-greasy formula, they seemed to be apt. Here is the review of the strawberry hand cream.

Price 350 INR for 30 ml

With cold-pressed strawberry seed oil.
This sweet Strawberry daily hand cream helps soften and protect hands with light, juicy moisture. The instantly absorbing formula is ideal for on-the-go hydration. Non-greasy moisture. Wonderfully light gel-cream formula. Absorbs instantly. Enriched with Community Fair Trade Shea Butter from Ghana.

My experience with The Body Shop Strawberry Hand Cream
It comes in a tiny travel size metallic looking tube. The cream is pale pink in color and has a very light gel like texture. it gets immediately absorbed by the skin and leaves no greasiness or stickiness behind. The moisturization is sufficient in the warm humid climate. However, it is not moisturizing enough for dry climate or if you have very dry skin.
It has a quite strong and nice scent of strawberries and lasts for about 30 minutes or so, after that it starts fading.

Summing up..

– Nice fragrance of strawberries
– Easily absorbed
– Non-greasy
– Tiny tube – so travel friendly
– Suitable for warm and humid climate

– Not moisturizing enough for very dry hands and/or cold climate

Should you buy it?

It’s a bit expensive for a hand cream, but then, it’s not at all a concern The Body Shop loyalists. If you’re a fan of fruity fragrances, you’re gonna love this.
