I tested this hand cream in store and liked the rose scent, so I bought it, mainly on impulse. However what I found is that over time the smell of the spf (which I don't like) in it would come to overpower the rose scent. Also the hand cream itself wasn't moisturising and left my hands feeling stiff and kind of... chalky? There are definitely better hand creams out there

This has a relatively strong rose scent to it.. It almost reminds me rose syrup!! Every time I apply this, I can't help but steal a few sniffs every now and then.
Apart from the smell, unfortunately, there's nothing else that impresses me. While it is absorbed quickly, I find that it doesn't spread as easily. The packaging is pretty bad when you have depleted a lot of the product. It also isn't moisturizing enough for my very dry hands.
My hands are really dry and they tend to crack, and while my hands don't crack after applying this, it didn't go out of it's way and made my hand so super soft (like it's relative the almond did).
Thankfully, I got this as a gift, or I would really regret the purchase. I'm definitely not recommending this if your hands are really dry. Not going to repurchase this after I'm done with this tube.

I loved the scent of this, it is so floral and mild. If you love the rose scent then this is definitely for you, I would say this sinks into skin fairly quickly and it has a cooling feeling which I like. Also the tube size is good and will last for quite a while. I initially loved the scent but now I realize that after a few hours, it smells really odd, close to how sun screen smells like and it is not very nice.

I'm really disappointed in this purchase. The metal tube has sharp edges. The threading of the cap is really fine and difficult to screw back on. The cream smells of roses yes.. but it's actually too strong.. and a bit fake smelling. The cream is light and non greasy but my skin seems to be reacting badly to it. My skin isn't usually sensitive to anything, but this seems to be drying it out and making it itchy. I don't think it's an allergic reaction because I don't have any hives (or any allergies at all that I know of. I would not recommend this product at all.

I think the ratings on here are fair for this product, it goes on light, non-greasy, smells lovely but its just not that moisturizing... which i guess is the payoff for the non-greasy nice texture. The spf 15, although not as high as I would want is a nice additional feature

Not super moisturizing, but also completely non-greasy. It will be great for the summertime when my skin isn't quite so dry. And I love the smell!

I love The Body Shop's Moroccan Rose Body Butter, so I thought this would be similar, but It's not. The scent is really faint. Personally I think The Body Shop's Hemp Hand Protector moisturizes better. Overall, this is a very ordinary hand cream for the price.

Hindu-Bengali wedding tradition is that groom's family gives bride gifts of clothing and cosmetics. Luckily, my mother-in-law is pretty damn cool, so she was all, "Look, buy what you want, buy stuff you will use, hopefully not drugstore stuff, and I'll pay you back." Combined with a Groupon, and my value-seeking self was set!
I wrote elsewhere (in a review of The Body Shop's Almond Body Butter) that I've been washing a lot more dishes lately (see: recent marriage, messy husband, who happens to be a phenomenal cook). Since I'm lazy about wearing gloves, I decided to try out a variety of hand creams and lotions.
This hand cream has a lovely smell. Really nice. A little product goes a long way, but the tube design (complete with tiny cap) means that there is usually a little spillage before I can close the thing off again. Nooo!
I don't know if I would re-purchase this; probably not. $20 for hand cream (3.3 oz) is kind of more than I want to pay. Also, I had assumed- I gave The Body Shop the benefit of the doubt- that their ingredient list would be pretty straightforward and easy to decipher. It's not (see above).
Maybe I should just moisturize with Vaseline or straight-up almond oil or something. Jeez. Maybe that would make my Luddite-self happy.

This hand cream smells divine, which is why I bought it. Really amazing wild rose scent, just like a bush rose in full bloom. Really lovely! Also love the SPF, since hands are known to show sun exposure with time. Unfortunately, this does just not hydrate at all. It says it contains rosehip oil, but it's really far down the ingredients list (as are all natural ingredients) and I cannot feel it. It doesnt leave a film, but since it doesnt hydrate either, I will not repurchase. The hemp version hydrates much, much better - unfortunately it also stinks. Guess you cant have it all with TBS hand creams.
