The Body Shop Almond Hand and Nail Butter Review

The Body Shop Almond Hand and Nail Butter

the body shop almond hand nail butter review

After reading some awesome reviews on the Body Shop Almond hand care range HERE and HERE , I have been pretty keen on trying it.

Hand Butter is a new inclusion in the already existing The Body Shop Hand Care range.

Claims : This intensive hydrating treatment restores moisture to dry skin for up to 24 hours and cares for dry, brittle nails. It contains sweet almond oil and has a silky-smooth, non-greasy finish.

  • Long-lasting hydration
  • Cares for dry, brittle nails
  • Buttery texture
  • Non-greasy
  • Sweet almond scent
Instructions : Apply generously and massage into clean, dry hands and nails. Allow to absorb fully. Use overnight with Moisture Boost Gloves for a more intensive treatment. This is step four of the Almond hand care regime: a complete cleanse, target, moisturize and treat range.

Price : Rs 620 for 100 gm / 3.5 oz  jar

My Experience : This is a heavy hand and nail care treatment mainly meant for dry hands. The texture is like thick cream, which takes quite a long time to get absorbed. It feels quite sticky and greasy. After applying, it gets absorbed in the palms and back of the hands but the stickiness stays especially between the fingers.

After using it regularly, I personally feel that this is more of a massage cream or simply a night treatment. You apply it at night and you’d wake up with soft hands. Or the best way I could figure out using this was to take an ample amount of hand butter, and give your hands and nails a good massage for good 5-10 minutes. After that using a warm damp towel, get rid of the excess product.Your hands would feel quite soft and nourished. It’s like giving yourself a mini manicure whenever you feel like. But using it just as a regular hand cream is not the best thing to do.  It works pretty fine as a foot cream though.

It smells quite nice.. sort of warm almond-y. It also makes hand soft and combats the dryness. But not impressive. I would have loved the non greasy, on-the-go kind of nourishing formula. This slightly disappoints.
