Hello everybody, today I will talk about the much raved about product from The Body Shop- the Hemp Foot Protector. When I first came across this, I was curious to know about hemp. This is what Wiki has to say : Hemp is variety of the Cannabis sativa plant species that is grown specifically for the industrial uses of its derived products. A little more research showed that hemp seed oil is loaded with omega-3 to 6 fatty acids.
This is what TBS has to say about its Hemp Foot Protector on its website :
This heavy-duty foot cream works wonders on very dry skin. It soothes and rehydrates skin and conditions nails
• Hydrates and softens rough, dry feet
• Helps to restore skin’s moisture barrier
• Conditions nails
• Dermatologically tested
It retails for INR 795 for 100ml in all TBS stores, and can also be bought online at http://www.thebodyshop.in/ or even at any of our e-commerce giants.
The Body Shop Hemp Foot Protector comes in a tub packaging with a green and brown combination. I guess it is to relate to the forests and foliage since hemp is a plant. 😛
My Overview of the Body Shop Hemp Foot Protector –
As a foot cream, The Body Shop hemp foot protector works wonders. It can soothe and moisturize the driest of the feet. My mom loves using it. I have used a few times and I am very satisfied with the results. The extreme moisturizing property of this foot cream gets me guessing that it must primarily contain hemp seed oil. I believe it must also work for those suffering from cracked heels with a consistent use. It is also great for those who have to spend long hours outdoors as too much exposure to sun, dust and pollution can get the better of our feet.
It is not as great when it comes to the fragrance like other TBS products. But that hardly matters for a foot cream. It is kinda medicinal or a little herbaceous, and may not suit the liking of many. I have no issues as such, as I’m quite happy with its efficacy.The fragrance doesn’t stay long, which is a good thing. Texture wise it is on the heavier side which is because of its high moisturizing properties. It applies easily and gets absorbed fairly quick, but for the initial few minutes you may not wish to make your feet work.
Overall The Body Shop Hemp Foot Protector is an amazing foot product and a winter must-have. If you’re on the lookout for a foot cream that actually works, and do not mind a bit of an uncanny smell, this is definitely worth a try!
My Rating : 5/5
