SPAresource Hand Cream & Body Butter Review

Today I have a review on some products from a "new to me" company, SPAresource. Their products are available at Walmart and on their web site, which is a very easy to navigate site filled with all of the information you need to learn more about this company and their products.

SPAresource is a Canadian family-owned business and their products are cruelty free. If you enjoy Bath & Body Works products, you're sure to love these too. Their prices are very reasonable, and they have a wide range of scents available in their products. They carry full-size and travel sizes which are great for portability, or if you'd just like to try a scent without committing to a full-sized product. They offer free samples to Canadian residents, so if you'd like to sample some of their goodies, check out the details here.

Above: The Vanilla Sugar Hand Cream is available in a 1.7 oz. tube and is priced at $2.00. Some of the hand cream scents are also available in a larger 6.8 oz. tube for $6.00. You can view all of the available scents here. Key Ingredients in the hand creams are: Shea Butter, Glycerin, Cocoa Butter, Mango Seed Butter, and Jojoba Oil. The Vanilla Grapefruit Body Butter comes in both a 6.8 oz. size ($6.00) and a smaller 1.7 oz. size ($2.00). The butter's key ingredients are the same as noted in the hand cream, minus the glycerin. Your can find all of the available body butter scents here.

Below: I was sent a number of sample packets in addition to the larger products, so I can tell you that all of the scents I received, smell divine! My favorites are the Coconut, Vanilla Grapefruit, and the Vanilla Sugar. The touch of vanilla in the Vanilla Grapefruit adds just the right amount of sweetness without being overpowering, and the combination of those two scents is a perfect pairing for an intoxicating fragrance.

Below: I wish you could do a "scratch to sniff" on your screen, because the Vanilla Sugar smells delicious! This photo shows how rich and thick the hand cream is. The body lotion is almost as thick, which I prefer over some of the thinner body lotions I have.

The products I tried were a variety of hand creams and body lotions, as well as the Moisturize Foot Cream. The three main things I noticed and loved about the hand creams and body lotions is that they weren't at all greasy, they were very hydrating, and their scent stays true. There are many times I smell a scent, but after wearing it for an hour or so, it smells completely different than it did when I first applied it. With these, the scent maintains the same notes that is seems to have at the start.

I'm getting my feet summer-ready, so I've been slathering on the Moisturize Foot Cream at night, and my feet are getting much softer and fit for sandal season. This product is packed with great ingredients including Shea Butter, Macadamia Oil, Aloe Vera Extract, Tea Tree Oil, Vitamin E, Honey Extract, Orange Extract, Horsetail Extract, Seaweed Extract, Allantoin and Aloe Extract. This product is available in a 4.2 oz. tube and retails for $5.00.

It's always enjoyable for me to be able to try out new products, but the bad part about that is that I keep adding to my list of things that I want more of! SPAresource has me hooked with their low prices, yummy scents, and products that work well on my skin. I went to my Walmart in search of these, but I wasn't able to locate them in my town. Luckily, they offer free shipping (both US and Canada) on orders over $30.00, so I'll be able to replenish my supply easily.
In addition to the hand and body lotions and creams, they also carry body mists, shower gels, scrubs, gift and starter kits, and another product I'll be reviewing soon, cosmetic brushes.

Have you ever tried SPAresource products or seen them at your Walmart? I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts on their products.

  1. They have some nice ingredients in their products and for a good price! Thanks for the info. Well not my wallet!

  2. OOO I'll have to check for these at my Wal-Mart. I'm in need of a good, thick, non-greasy, non-messy, good smelling...hand cream. I'm not too fond of thin lotions for anything.

  3. I'm looking for hand lotion so I'll be looking out for this line!

  4. I love this stuff, First the company sent me some then I bought more for myself(:

  5. I just got today my order from Fortune Cookie Soaps, but I may have to stretch the budget and go check these since I love everything coconut (the Island girl in me is alive and kicking)

  6. I love these! They are so inexpensive! I just got my sample pack in the mail the other day and have yet to open any (speaking of which I'm going to go grab them right now haha) Great review! XOXO

  7. I love the Vanilla Sugar Hand Cream!!
    My Mom gave me some a year ago for Christmas, & I just keep it around to smell it since it's almost gone. haha

  8. Nice to know about the buttery cream that is an essential to fight the dry winter months.It is always nice to read reviews and try the sachets to make sure that the product is going to be a good experience.
