Lush Handy Gurugu Review


Hi All,

I love Lush and the fact that there were discount everywhere since last month just made me go bonkers…Winters are when I typically slather myself in lotion multiple times a day. To this end, I buy a lot of TBS but this year I thought of going for Lush and along with some other goodies, picked up the Lush Handy Gurugu Cream 🙂

About Lush Handy Gurugu

Helpful, heavenly, herbal hand cream. Our creative buying team travelled for 15 hours on a rickety bus, along pot-holed roads to find the villages where our shea butter is handmade by the local women. Our shea butter is the freshest, loveliest and most fragrant that you can get your hands on. To make Handy Gurugu, we blended shea butter into rose water with another six natural oils and butters, plus soothing essential oils. It’s a truly fabulous, easily absorbed hand cream that the team have all been using daily and nightly since we first got our hands on it. It makes a big difference to your skin and an even bigger difference to the people who make the shea butter.

My experience with Lush Handy Gurugu:-


  • Packaging – This comes in a tub which some would say isn’t too hygienic but I don’t mind since I’m used to scooping out lotion and body creams from tubs anyways 🙂

  • Color & Texture – This cream is a creamy off white color and thick in texture..It’s not as thick as TBS body butter though and gets absorbed very easily.
  • Fragrance – This smells like shea butter with a tinge of rose water and a faint fragrance of almond oil. After application though it smells like talcum… read right..talcum. And the fragrance lasts eons!

My Verdict:Lush Handy Gurugu :-

I’ve been using TBS for years and years and was frankly bored of the same scents over and over. Not to mention I find body butters too thick to apply on my hands at work since they take a while to get absorbed…So when I told the SA this, she was most happy to let me try out Handy Gurugu…And Girls, I was sold at first trial!

One needs a very tiny amount and I use this all over my arms and hands. And I’m set for about 3hrs atleast! For my skin in winters, this is an achievement and I imagine the effects would last longer during summers..It’s not the least bit greasy (unless you scoop out a ton of product) and absorbs fast, leaving my skin baby soft..I’m not going to use adjectives like silky, etc coz it doesn’t make my skin silky at all..just moisturized and nourished which is exactly what I want.

And the Talcum fragrance is soooooo lovely…It’s not the sharp kinds which irritates my nose but softer and lingers on for long..At times, I just sniff my hands in the middle of work and find it comforting in some weird way.. 🙂

A minute after sinking in…

What I like about Lush Handy Gurugu:


  • Super moisturizing
  • 1 tub will last a long time considering how little is required for each application
  • I love the talcum fragrance
  • Makes my skin super soft and nourished.
  • Effects last a long time…
  • Lush doesn’t test on animals.


What I don’t like about Lush Handy Gurugu

I don’t hate anything about it except that some may find it pricey…Which is why all hail sale time! 🙂
