WHAT IS IT: The Body Shop Wild Rose Hand Cream SPF15

The Body Shop Wild Rose Hand Cream SPF15: This daily hand cream with rosehip oil provides much needed moisture to mature skin while helping to reduce the appearance of brown spots.

It smells really strong of rose when initially applied, but the scent slowly dissipates until it doesn't make you feel nauseous at all. Every now and then, you get a whiff of roses. But, if you're having a headache, migraine or feeling slightly dizzy, the rose scent might get to you and make you feel a little nauseous though.

It is really creamy, but it doesn't take too much effort and trouble to massage it into my skin. And it doesn't even feel oily at all.

VERDICT: First of all, the hand cream itself looks so rich, thick and creamy but it doesn't require too much effort and trouble to massage into the skin. The downside is that, it doesn't spread too easily at first. So, you definitely need to take a little time to spread it around your hands for overall coverage. And the good part is that it leave this greasy/oily sensation after application.

Despite the rose scent of this product being strong initially, it slowly dissipates after application and it doesn't smell that strong of roses after application. The scent might not be for you if you are someone who dislikes those rose-y scented hand cream. Although I personally have to admit that once applied, it gradually slowly sinks into the skin and you can instantly see your skin feeling and looking much more moisturized immediately after application.

It doesn't leave this chalky white residue after application, which I have to grateful for and if I were to compare this hand cream to other hand cream I've tried and used before, it might pale a little in comparison. Despite the description stating that it helps to reduce the appearance of brown spots, I found that it doesn't fade some old discolored scars on my hands at all. And get this straight, I always apply hand cream on my skins all the way to my elbows before going to bed each night. As for the SPF part, I don't really see much of a difference at all since my hands look pretty much the same skintone before I started using this.


WHAT I THINK: Unfortunately, this doesn't really aid in the reduction of brown spots. I'm presuming that you need to use this for much longer periods to actually see the difference. Plus points for being so rich and creamy but yet effortless to apply.

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: So far, there's no sample sachet for this hand cream. But you can pop by any TBS outlet in Singapore to give this hand cream a try instead.

Why not like my Facebook page at to be informed of latest samples I found, which is duly updated? Also includes updates to health, beauty & lifestyle tips at least once a day. It will definitely save you the trouble of having to hunt them down :)
