The Body Shop | Almond Hand & Nail Cream

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I'd spend $20 on a hand cream.
I mean c'mon, it's a hand cream for god's sake!  
I DESPISE the greasy residue that plenty of them leave behind but needed something for my extra dry hands.   
 I knew I needed to go back and purchase this hand cream when I left ULTA empty handed.  

This hand and nail cream smells beautiful!  A sweet nutty smell.  
It's a combination of almond oil, shea butter, honey, soya oil and brazil nut oil, all which are supported by the community fair trade.  
No animal testing here.

The Body Shop has done a fabulous job with the packaging.  
(Yes, I'm one of those, a sucker for packaging).
It's easy to travel with and comes with a screw cap.

 The tiniest amount goes a long way.  Trust me!  
The consistency is a bit runnier than the hand creams I've used in the past which I love.
In a matter of minutes it's fully absorbed into the skin and leaves your hands and nail beds feeling soft and nourished.

Before bed, I work this hand cream into my nails.  
I've noticed a significant difference in the condition of my cuticles.
They're easier to push back and don't ever look dry or unmanaged.

A must try!
