Balea Handlotion Sheabutter Vanille

This handlotion is getting more and more popular. At least here in Slovenia. =) I read about it on several different blogs and forums, so I figured - why not tell you my opinion about it.

Ingredients: Aqua, Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Butyrospermum Parkii Butter, Hydrogenated Olive Oil, Ethylhexyl Stearate, Persea Gratissima Oil, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, Glyceryl Stearate SE, Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Panthenol, Cera Alba, Tocopheryl Acetate, Parfum, Carbomer, Vanilla Planifolia Fruit Extract, Methylparaben, Sodium Hydroxide, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate, Coumarin.

Price: €2.25 for 300 mL

Where to buy? Drogerie Markt stores.


I purchased this lotion a couple of weeks ago. That's also how long I've been using it. I have to admit I bought it because of the pretty package. The ''limited edition'' writing on it helped a bit too. =)
This is what it says it is. It's not a heavy duty hand cream, it's a lotion of light texture and nice, sweet vanilla scent. It moisturizes skin without making it too greasy and it soakes in quite fast.

+ Great packaging. The pump allows you to control the amount of lotion you need.
+ Nice vanilla scent.
+ Soakes in quickly, leaving moisturized and non greasy skin.
+ Price.

- Strong scent might as well be a downside for some users.
- It's a limited edition product. 

Would I recommend it?  Yes, I would most definitely recommend this product. It's cheap and it does what it's supposed to do.

I liked the scent very much at first. But the more I use it, the more annoying it gets. That's why I'm giving it four out of five kisses.

Thanks for looking!


  1. men je mal prevelika embalaž mogoče je res preveč odiš vem vanilija mi ne diši preveč:)...ampak ok, se hitro to je super:)

  2. I love the scent of vanilla...I hope I can find this somewhere!

  3. @Pink_Diamond: Ampak, če bi bila embalaža manjša, bi bilo posledično tudi manj izdelka... Nikoli ne more biti popolno. =D Vonj mi gre pa že res malo na živce. Imam raje nežne vonje krem.

    @Silva: If there's a DM store near you, you should be able to find it. =)

  4. Jaz imam 2 flaški - eno doma eno pa pri fantu, se pa zadnje čase spogledujem še z Aloe Vero, ki je trenutno na voljo v DM. :D Ponavadi sploh ne uporabljam krem ampak s tole se pa večkrat namažem, ker se res hitro vpije. :)

  5. Do you know any other good hand creams that can be bought anywhere? Here we don't have that brand and i'm looking for a new cream.

  6. Meni je tud super, pa še tako lepo diši- i <3 vanilla scent.

  7. Jaz imam obe vanilijo in aloe vero ....vanilija mi ful lepo diši...škoda, da je ni več v dm-u
