About a year ago, I saw a couple of skincare products from Whish Body in a blog review. They looked so appealing. I made note.
A few weeks ago, I was given a chance to try out two products from Whish. I chose the Rice Milk Hand Remedy and the Coconut Milk Shave Cream with Hair Inhibitor.
Right off the bat, I loved the Whish Hand Remedy packaging. It comes in a black and white box containing a black and white plastic tube. The tube has such a whimsical look. It reminds me of a penguin! And it also looks like a groovy design from the 1960s.
Plus, it is sealed so I know I won’t get it all over the place even before I open it.
It’s a fabulous “Hand Remedy”. It’s very thick and hydrating, but it sinks into my skin on contact. No greasiness whatsoever. I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it. It has a light, clean scent so men could use it as well as women.
Here’s how it’s described on Ulta.com:
Whish Rice Milk Hand Remedy heavy duty hand cream evens skin tone, refines skin, and reduces wrinkles. Our Formula: brightens with malva sylvestris extract, primula veris extract, and palmaria palmata. Smoothes wrinkles with tribehenin, ceramide 2, and palmitayl oligopeptide. Exfoliates with glycolic acid and lemon & green tea AHA complex
It does a wonderful job plumping my dry skin on my hands. They look so much smoother after I apply it. Great stuff! Now, if only I didn’t have all the sun damage I have, they’d look like the hands of a girl! I’m hoping that by the time I finish the tube, the dark spots will have faded at least a little.

Oh, I love this shave cream! Where to start? It comes in a plastic pump bottle rather than the metal aerosol cans that I’m used to. It’s so much nicer than those cans. And instead of a foaming gel, it is a cream, a hydrating, light peach-colored cream that smells like coconut, yum!
When I use an aerosol gel/foam, I usually end up with a lot of foam. With Whisk, I pump out 3 pumps of cream to cover my lower leg, and it is much less than the gel I would normally use. However, it is thick so I need to rinse out my razor more often than usual. But I don’t mind because I love this stuff!
- moisturizes with squalene, omega 3 and organic shea butter
- soothes with organic green tea, organic jojoba seed oi and organic coconut oil
- inhibits hair growth with chapparel extract.
It definitely leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated, and I do believe that my hair is growing back at a slower rate.
Whish Coconut Shave Cream contains 5 oz. and it priced at $24. It is sold on the Whish Body website, at Ulta and Nordstrom. It comes in 4 other scents, but I don’t believe the other scents contain the hair inhibitor.

Whish Body is a very cool brand. The products seem different in terms of their look, their functions and their healthy ingredients. At this gift-giving time of year, both would be great gifts or stocking stuffers or great gifts for yourself. Right now, Ulta has a buy 1, get 1 for 50% off so it’s easier to buy one as a gift and get a deal on one for yourself! Whish Body has an extensive product line that includes other body care products like sugar scrub, deodorant with hair grown inhibitor, body butter, body CC cream among others.
