Hotel Chocolat Cocoa Juvenate Revive Hand Cream Review

Everyone knows that Hotel Chocolat makes chocolate, but did you know they have a whole range of creams and toiletries too?

Hotel Chocolat Cocoa Juvenate Revive Hand Cream* available here 

Cocoa is not just good enough to eat, but it's also 'rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and feel-good happinness' too. 

According to Hotel Chocolat, the cream will 'help protect, renew, enliven and uplift, all with an invigorating scent inspired by freshly cut cocoa pods with notes of bergamot, green tea, lime, exotic florals and warm sandalwood.' It is also made with 'Organic West Indian cocoa butter, shea butter and mango seed oil to help soft, smooth and rejuvenate skin'.


Apply a small amount whenever required. Massage gently into skin and cuticles to nourish and protect. Instantly absorbed it will leave hands soft, silky, nourished and protected.


I love the minimalist white and black packaging of this cream, whilst the convenient flip top means it's easy to close using just-moisturised hands.

The scent is completely different to what I first expected. Since it's made with cocoa, I was expecting a rich, chocolate scent, but instead I got something seriously zingy! The bergamot, green tea and lime are all sharp, lively scents that create an uplifting aroma. A thick cream, this rubbed in quickly and easily, didn't leave any residue and left hands soft and well moisturised. 

It definitely lives up to the claims and is definitely a no-calorie pick me up!
