Most Helpful Positive Review Smell Takes Some Getting Used to...
I got this free with a recent online order, and was super excited as it's a product I've been curious about for a while now. What does hemp lotion even smell like? Turns out, the answer is dirt. It smells like dirt. I suppose it would be nice for someone who gardens a lot, has rough hands, and is used to that earthy, natural smell, but for me, it came as kind of a shock. I used the lotion once and shelved it. Here's the rub: it has such a wonderful thick consistency, it heals skin, and it moisturizes without feeling super greasy. The actual lotion is so good, I eventually started using it again. I wouldn't use it around other people, because seriously, the smell is just too weird. I keep it on my nightstand and use it on my hands right before bed. It also works well on my feet. Bottom line: it's a great product, as long as you can get past the dirt smell. I'd still recommend it, but go do a sniff test first.

I work in the dental hygiene field, so I wash my hands what feels like hundreds of times a day.
My knuckles get very dried out (especially this time of year), and I needed something that would be very moisturizing to keep my skin from cracking.
I had used body butters from the body shop before and decided I'd give this a try.
I ordered it online since there are no stores that carry this brand in my area, and I wish that I had been able to smell it before I purchased it.
I am very prone to headaches due to certain smells, and this lotion instantly induces a headache for me every time I've used it.
I really want to like this product, but the smell is just not for me.
It also doesn't absorb into my skin very well, and it's greasy.
I will be giving this away unfortunately.

Hate hate hate the smell. It moisturizes fine but makes my hands smell like weed head.
Great product for dry hands
Flower from Florida
This hand treatment is not greasy. It is very hydrating and stays on through several hand washings.
My all time favourite hand cream
Pixie from Texas
I've been using body shop products since I was a teenager overseas. When I came to the US I was so happy to see that Ulta carried some of their products! Including my all time favourite hand cream the Hemp Hand Protector.
For someone who's always had dry, eczema proned skin I need a decent hand cream (especially when I'm hairdressing!) this stuff is awesome and my mom also always used it after gardening.
Manda from TN
I normally hate hand cream with a passion even though it's a necessity for me. My hands get so so so dry and this is the only thing I've found that doesn't BURN when I put it on my dry cracked hands
Wow, is this stuff good!
Mrs H from Knoxville
Every time I wash and dry my hands I use this hand cream to minimize the cracked skin I usually get in the winter.
Just what I needed
JK in TX from Texas (USA)
I was looking for some kind of hand repair cream to combat the dry skin I get from a combo of constant dishwashing, and dry winter weather. This cream is perfect. Just a little squeeze goes a long way and it really does make my hands feel better.
Wonderful silky texture
Silky hands from Mi
I love the silky texture and it smells heavenly. All my friends are using it now. I carry it in my purse. The shower bar is great too.
This lotion is the best!
Angelica from Anaheim, CA
This product really works! My hands have gone from dry and irritated to moisturized and feeling wonderful. I've tried many different products for dry hands but this one is the best!
This really works on dry, cracked, winter hands!
Nana from Blue Hill, Maine
My hands & fingers would cling to fabrics & I could hear a "plucky" sound as they stuck to clothes. Dry, cracked winter hands are no more! My hands are actually smooth! GREAT product, thank you!!!
AZbookseller from Arizona
This is the best hand care around. It's very rich so I generally use it at night before I go to bed. It's great for very dry skin and also for everyday protection. Worth every penny!
Smells like a incense
Chitown from Chicago
I got this as a sample and was pretty excited but it smells like a head shop in a bad way. I wouldn't mind a Nag Champa or patchouli. It smells smokey and a little off brand air freshener.
Love this product!!
Indiana Girl from Valparaiso, IN
I have been using this hand lotion for years, and is my favorite by far! It is thick, but absorbs in the skin silky smooth, and definitely works to soften & protect hands.
Jax from Lansing, MI
This is THE BEST hand moisturizer. I have used it fir several years and have recommended it to several people. I put some on every night before going to bed and my hands don't crack. I only use it in the winter months as that is when my hands tend to try out. Using this prevents that from happening.
Best hand cream I have ever used!
Carolyn Louise from Lake Elsinore
Hydrates hands and nails.
Wonderful hand cream!

LOVE this product!
Dry Hands Gal from Valparaiso, IN
I have been using this product for years, and I haven't found anything else that compares to it! Leaves your hands feeling soft & not too greasy. I always keep the travel size one in my purse too. Love it!
The BEST remedy to dry hands!
Nice hand cream from Handland
Between all the hand washing and sanitizing I do throughout the day, my hands have become super dry and cracked. I bought this not expecting it to help much and it has helped a bunch! I put it on overnight and let it soak, and I wake up to soft hands!
Dry hands from Louisiana
Great on my husband's rough dry hardworking hands. He states it is the only thing that smooths out his dry hands.
Tish from Texas
I love the smell of this lotion. It soaks right into my hands.
Best for dry hands
Coffee addict from Seattle
This is the best hand cream for dry hands. Clears up
redness and cracking. My favorite in winter. Cruelty-Free!
Great for nurses' hands
RoxiesMom from Farmington, NM
I love The Body Shop! This hand cream soothes overly washed hands. As a nurse I feel I am an expert on hand cream. The earthy smell is not overpowering and it's not greasy. Worth the investment of a tube of Hemp Hand Protector.
Better than others
Angel from USA
I was born w/very dry skin so I'm always searching for a product that actually works.
I purchased this knowing the reviews mentioned it having a bad smell (it does) & w/high hopes.
It does help my hands better than others,but it does feel a little oily/greasy too. I'm not sure if I'd purchase this again. I'll continue to use it & see how my hands feel overtime.
i love the way the Hemp hand protector feels.
Suzy Q from Nashville, TN.
It is very soothing and healing. It never leaves a greasy feeling and penetrates the skin.

I use this on my hands and feet. I have ezcema and it soothes and heals.
Lily from Maine
I bought this for aftercare on some of my recent tattoos, and It healed them so fast and so evenly! Better than other lotions made specifically for tattoos that I have used in the past. I also LOVE the smell of it, so natural and clean smelling.
