Today, I’m reviewing The Body Shop Wild Rose Hand Cream. I just wanted to buy this hand cream for its fragrance because it smells divine just as real roses do with none of the nauseating fake rose scent, but the SA always discouraged me from buying this hand cream stating its for elderly women with dark spots on hand. Well, you can guess how discouraging that is 🙁 but a hand cream junkie that I am, I came across a gift pack with 3 travel-size hand creams including the one I was lusting after and I grabbed it immediately.
This daily hand cream with rosehip oil provides much needed moisture to mature skin while helping to reduce the appearance of brown spots:
- Helps reduce the appearance of brown spots.
- With SPF 15.
- For mature skin.
- Rose scent.
Rs. 725 for 100 ml.

I personally love this hand cream, its extremely moisturizing without making the the skin greasy. The cream kind of gets absorbed quickly. The texture is similar to the almond hand cream, but I wish it had the consistency of hemp hand protector, which is my favorite.
I can’t comment on their claim of dark spot reduction, but its a good hand cream all in all except for the packing. TBS hand creams tend to ooze out of the tubes by themselves the moment you use it and get accumulated around the opening. I prefer a flip-cap over this.
You can also buy the gift set and stow each of them in every hand bag 😛 The gift set costs Rs. 1099 for a set of three 30 ml hand creams.
Pros of The Body Shop Wild Rose Hand Cream:
- Contains SPF 15.
- Reduction of dark spots.
- Good fragrance.
- Provides good moisturisation.
Cons of The Body Shop Wild Rose Hand Cream:
I would definitely buy this again, but in regular size.
