P.S - I dont insist you buy this! Every now and then Body Shop supports a cause and their latest campaign is Soft Hands Kind Heart! If you buy, it supports a cause being a charity product! As far as my knowledge goes, it might be a limited edition product or available for a shorter period! Correct me if I am wrong!

  3. i never realized how important hand creams are until i used one. till then i would make do with whatever i used on my face/body. hand creams sink in quickly and don't make the skin greasy. such a blessing for me because my steering wheel always ended up with grease marks!
