Today I’ll introduce you to the hand cream which currently resides on my nightstand; The Body Shop Japanese Cherry Blossom Hand & Nail Cream. I’ve had this one for a while now and I still haven’t finished it. I even believe the packaging is different now, but don’t quote me on that. As you can probably tell it looks quite bulky in comparison to the ones from L’Occitane and & Other Stories, so this is not the type of hand cream I’d take with me in my bag. It’s the one I would religiously use right before bed, on my hands, cuticles and – a spot often forgotten – elbows.
This hand cream sinks into the skin fast, just not as fast as the ones I reviewed earlier on in this Sakura series. It’s not particularly oily and moisturizes well, although people with very dry hands, and especially during the winter season, might find it insufficient. The effect only lasts for a brief moment too. You’ll have to really love the fragrance of this, because it comes off as quite strong.
