I’ve always heard good things about the True Blue Spa products from Bath & Body Works, but it was only until very recently that I tried my first one.
Since my hands have been pretty dry with extra-frequent washing, I decided to put this cream to the test: True Blue Spa Super Rich Hand Cream Lay It On Thick Fragrance Free! (Wowzers, that was long!)
So, I’m not usually diligent about applying hand cream after every single instance I wash my hands. More often than not, I find myself applying cream when I notice that my hands are dry. (Yeah, not the best strategy.)
It also doesn’t help that sadly, I’m still feeling under the weather. (When I’m sick, I tend to wash my hands and use sanitizer a lot more because I don’t want to spread my misfortune.) I made some improvement and thought I was getting better, but then the really cold weather made it harder to recuperate. This is officially the worst illness I’ve had in a long time, and I’m so ready for it to leave me alone!

True Blue Spa Super Rich Hand Cream Lay It On Thick Fragrance Free Review
As I was slathering on this True Blue Spa hand cream and ‘laying it on thick’ as the name blatantly says, I was skeptical about how well it would moisturize because although the consistency was thick coming out of the tube, when I rubbed it into my skin, it felt very thin. (My skin usually loves thicker lotions like Aveeno.)
You have to really rub this product in, and I noticed that no matter how long I did so, it still left my hands looking a bit shiny.
I’m also glad that I only applied it to the backs of my hands (and not my palms). At work, I have to type a lot on the computer, so having slick fingertips and palms might drive me crazy and dirty up my keyboard.
After letting the product sink into the skin for an hour, then I noticed it wasn’t quite so greasy-looking.
Aside from the ‘slick’ look, the True Blue Spa hand cream did a good job at hydrating my parched hands. I felt immediate relief as I was applying it, and after leaving it on for a while, I could see and feel a big difference.
One of the main reasons why I even decided to try the True Blue Spa Super Rich Hand Cream was because it came in a fragrance-free formula. Sure, I love yummy-smelling lotions and creams, but sometimes you just want something that’s plain and that won’t interfere with your perfume.
I didn’t really notice any fragrance when using this, so I was really happy about it.
The True Blue Spa Super Rich Hand Cream comes in a small 70-gram squeeze tube with a flip-up cap. This is my favourite type of packaging for a hand cream because I can easily throw it into my purse and dispense the product while on-the-go. (Creams that come in pots with screw-on lids always confuse me. Wouldn’t your hands be slick with cream, and wouldn’t that make it hard to screw the lid back on?)
For the price, even though I got this on a Buy-2-Get-1-Free sale, I thought it was quite expensive for such a tiny tube, but I’ve found that using it sparingly (instead of slathering it on like I did initially) still seems to yield good results.
According to the packaging, the True Blue Spa Super Rich Hand Cream was not tested on animals.
Final Verdict: 8/10
Even though the True Blue Spa Super Rich Hand Cream moisturized my hands as promised, I personally still prefer my Aveeno lotions to this. With Aveeno, I feel like it doesn’t make your hands feel so slick, and I’m not a big fan of having my skin look like I dipped it into a bucket of KFC.
Still, I had to give this True Blue Spa hand cream a high score because it managed to bring my dry hands back to looking normal again even with just the initial use. I think this is better used as an overnight hand treatment than one you frequently use throughout the day.
Would I repurchase this? Probably not. I’ll stick with my Aveeno.
