Project Focus 10: The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Cream

IMG_8086I’m doing a Project Focus 10 with three beauty bloggers. I am trying to finish up 10 products in the span of 10 weeks. A new PF10 post on any updates along with a product review of one of the products will appear every Monday. It’s a challenge for me because the products must be ones I’d never done a full review on before but are still on the market!

Quick update on PF10 progress:

  1. Lorac Pro – Whoopsy daisy! Haven’t used it once this week.
  2. Urban Decay eye liner – Same answer as above. I was trying out the Marc Jacobs Highliner Gel Crayon instead.
  3. The Body Shop hand cream – Used this every night because I remember to now.
  4. Tarte mascara – Used once. I’m not a mascara person unless it’s the only eye product I’m wearing.
  5. NYX lip gloss – Will be reviewed below but I used this all of last week!
  6. Rimmel concealer – I’ve come to the conclusion that I will be sad when this is gone. This will definitely be a repurchase for me. For more of a rave review, click the link!
  7. Aquaphor – I used this everyday and every night. My lips are as soft as ever.
  8. NYM sea salt spray – I use this when I am putting waves in my hair to hold and texturize the look.
  9. Batiste hint of color – I used this once this week.
  10. Clinique eye cream – I use this daily, night and/or day.

Here’s a review on 8/10 PF10 products:

The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Cream

IMG_8092The Body Shop Almond Hand & Nail Cream is a moisturizing hand cream.

This effective daily hand cream cares for nails as well as hands and contains two manicurist’s essentials: sweet almond oil and panthenol.

  • Moisturizing
  • Conditions nails
  • Sweet almond scent
  • Get every drop of goodness out by using the Hand Cream Winding Key

Price: $20.00 for 3.3 fl. oz.

Packaging: Flexible metal tube with twist off cap. Could use better packaging.

Formula: Lotion-like hand cream

My thoughts

This hand cream is not the best and it’s not the worst either. I think its scent is too strong, but if you like a sweet almond smell, it’s perfect. I don’t think it smells bad, but it’s a bit on the overwhelming side. This is why I don’t use that much when I apply it to my hands. Another reason I don’t use that much is because a little goes a long way. This product moisturizes the hands really well, including the nail beds. I never have greasy hands because the hand cream’s formula sinks into the skin flawlessly.

What’s your favorite hand cream at the moment?
