Zoella Wonder Hand Review

I’ve been tempted by Zoella’s beauty line a few times over the past year, I’m not a massive fan of her per se – but I do occassionally watch her videos. But walking past her range in Superdrug, I can’t help but stop and sniff! It smells lovely and reminds me very much of that lush type scent – but the range has always felt a bit limited. With a small selection containing your basics such as body lotion (which I always have plenty in stock thanks to beauty boxes) and bath products (I’m not a big bath lover either). So when Zoella Wonder Hand  was added to the line, I had it on my shopping list straight away to get my hands on one at the earliest opportunity..


Firstly, lets talk packaging – the fact that this arrived in it’s own little box was a nice touch considering the product is so affordable – it was sealed on both ends – and my guess is that they’ve done that to stop swarms of teens opening them in stores. But never the less for £5 on a very generous sized tube is nice, and the quality speaks of much more expensive brands. Inside a muted rose gold tube again makes this feel much more luxe than you’d guess for the price.


I like 2 types of hand creams, ones for my handbag and ones for my bedside table. This definately is the latter as it’s way too big to carry around in my handbag – which is actually good as I really needed something larger as I’ve been steaming through my smaller ones and haven’t had any left for my handbag!


You only need a tiny pea sized amount of this which is enough to do both hands. When first applied this thick cream does have a slight stickiness, but it fades after a minute or two, something which doesn’t bother me at all – especially as I’m using it as a bedside product. I’ve been really putting my hands to the test the past 2 weeks, with DIY, gardening, the big autumn house clean and lots of other things which are generally unfriendly on my hands – and thanks to a little dab of this at night they’ve shown no sides of being battered or dry. The scent in this is more muted than expected – it has the scent of her original core collection – but it’s not completely in your face, but is still noticeable.


If they were to introduce a smaller sized bottle I’d get one straight away to put into my handbag too.

What are your favourite hand creams?

    I have been wanting to try a few of Zoellas products out of extreme curiosity (I’m not a huge fan but I do like her) but I haven’t done it yet. I could see myself trying this as my first one though – and the packaging is adorable.

      I’m the same, at 25 I find the majority of her videos geared at a younger audience a bit tedious to watch – but do like her vlogs when she does them! I like that she’s packaged this in a way that suits everybody rather than making it look too teen geared!

        You just hit the nail on the head, girly! I’m 24 so I know exactly what you’re talking about. She does buy some awesome products though!

    Great review! I love the packaging. My favourite hand cream would have to be The body shop hemp hand protector

      I’ve tried lots from the body shop but never the hemp one! Once I’m out of my current stash of about 6 hand creams I’ll be sure to give that one a go next! X

    This sounds lovely, I’d pick this up given the chance myself. Great review x

    Thank you for your review! I’ve been waiting a while for someone to review this as I’ve been wanting to try it out. I knew that because it’s a Zoella Beauty Line product that it wouldn’t let me down at all. But I would’ve liked to know the contents and how it felt on this skin and this described it perfectly. Thanks!

    What adorable packaging! I love this!

    I might have to try this! I personally love the Body Shop ones! Plus they’re tiny.

    Yeah I’m not a massive fan of Zoella – I can only tolerate her in small doses. I liked her slightly better when she was filming out of her bedroom at her parents’ house.
    That’s quite a cute packaging on this hand cream! She should come out with a smaller purse size version.

    I didn’t even know Zoella had a line! I like her when she does videos alone, but her vlogs are a bit much for me. Also she’s geared to the younger crowd and I’ll be 32 soon lol but I do enjoy her hair/makeup. 🙂

      I feel the same – although I like her the other way around, prefer her vlogs unless she’s talking about something specific I’m interested in !
