The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Caring Shower Cream And Body Butter

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 products that were gifted to me – The Body Shop‘s Almond Milk & Honey Calming & Protecting Hand Cream, Soothing & Caring Shower Cream and Body Butter. These products are aimed at people with sensitive or dry skin.

I tried the hand cream first – and I liked it a lot! The hand cream feels nourishing, and it makes my skin feel super soft for hours. The almond milk and honey fragrance is sweet and warm – just lovely!

The shower cream is quite unusual because it’s pretty much like a cream! It feels nourishing, but it doesn’t really lather up, and it doesn’t feel very cleansing. But it smells great!

The body butter doesn’t smell as good as the hand cream or the shower cream, but it’s quick and easy to use because it melts into the skin. Having said that, this body butter isn’t as nourishing as I expected. After 12 hours the skin on my legs felt dry (the rest of my body was OK though).

I’m happy that I got the chance to test these products. However, I wouldn’t buy them for myself. Whilst the hand cream is great, I wouldn’t pay ÂŁ5 for such a tiny tube!

The Body Shop Almond Milk & Honey hand cream is available as 30ml, the shower cream is available as 60ml and 250ml, and the body butter is available as 50ml and 200ml.

NSPA Rich Body Butter Honey

Hi there! Today’s post is about NSPA’s Honey Body Butter. NSPA is a UK-based brand that is exclusive to Asda. I’ve reviewed a few different NSPA products before, so have a look if you’re interested.

OK, let’s focus on the actual product review now. 🙂 NSPA’s honey body butter smells sweet and quite honey-like. Sure, it’s obvious it’s not a food. But unlike many other honey-themed products, this body butter doesn’t smell of cheap coconut suntan lotion.

The body butter is very rich, so it’s great for dry skin. However, the butter is also quite sticky which means it’s not the perfect body butter for warm summer days. And if you’re generally not OK with sticky body creams, you won’t like this one.

I prefer my moisturisers to be non-sticky, but this body butter is so incredibly moisturising (it’s wonderful!) that I don’t mind the stickiness every once in a while. I think I’ll be using it once a week as a skin treat.

NSPA Rich Body Butter with Honey is available at Asda. At £3 the 200ml tub is reasonably priced. However, keep your eyes peeled for special offers . 🙂
