Creme de la Paw series featuring The Body Shop's Spiced Vanilla

Welcome to our first post in the series we like to Creme de la Paw where we'll be reviewing our vast collection of hand creams that are meant to moisturise, soothe and basically love your paws so that they're in tip top shape for the winter season.  Nobody wants to be showing off their Christmas manicures like this one and even this one with big old grandmaw hands, so we're here to give you our heads up on what hand creams we love.

First up is the latest addition to our collection and the very season appropriate Spiced Vanilla hand cream from The Body Shop.  I got this when I went along to the Christmas event at The Body Shop a few weeks ago.  I think it's €8.50 but will double check and let you know.  This is a 50 ml tube of loveliness and is a handbag friendly size.

The cream itself is really thick when you squirt some onto your hands but sinks into the skin easily and without frantic rubbing of the hands or having to wait for ages for it to sink in.  There's no greasy residue left either, just a sheen on the hands.  The scent though is my favourite thing about this hand cream.  It's described as Spiced Vanilla and at first I was afraid it would be too cinnamonny or clovey but no, it's completely lush and just the most warm and cozy scented vanilla hand cream that is so comforting and makes me smile every time I use it, without fail.  It's actually a bit weird that it makes me do that but sure there's no harm in smiling a little bit more these days.  It's on my desk at work now and I make my chums try it when they come visit and they love it.  It also comes in a smaller size as part of this here set of hand creams with the other two Christmas scents, Candied Ginger and Cranberry Joy for €17.50.

Now, The Body Shop Ireland are having a one off 30% off everything one day sale tomorrow so get shopping if you see anything you like!  I've reviewed and talked about some of The Body Shop's products so have a look below to read before you buy.

So the Spiced Vanilla hand cream gets my thumbs up and is a mighty start to our Creme de la Paw series.

Do tell, what's your favourite hand cream?


  1. I just took advantage of the 3 for $10 sale to stock up on body butters but the ones from the Holiday collection didn't really catch my attention z=

  2. My fave hand cream is one by Bath and bodyworks that smells like brown sugar and vanilla...It makes me happy just smelling at it!I hope our Body Shop does a 30% because I have some things on my list!Thanks for sharing!

  3. Gaby - love the body butters too, am working my way through my acai one :)

    Ria - I hope your body shop has good deals soon too!
