The Body Shop Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream Gift Set: Review

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Hi guys, hope it has been a good start to you weekend. Today I have another lovely hand cream from The Body Shop to show you guys! The Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream ($15.00) is a moisturizing hand cream made from shea butter and absinthe extract that leaves your hand smelling super fresh.
I have here a little gift set with a 100ml of the hand cream, two nail filers and a nail clipper. To read my review, click......
I believe the set I have here is only available during holiday times, the hand cream is sold on its own in two sizes, $15 for a 100ml tube or $7.50 for a 30ml one.
The Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream, much like previous The Body Shop hand creams I have reviewed, is very light and absorbs very quickly. It doesn't leave a oily residue but still moisturizes very well. I like rubbing it into my cuticles to keep them looking nourished.
This hand cream smells very herbal and fresh. The smell isn't very strong so if prefer hand creams with a subtle scent, definitely consider this one, but you are into sweeter scents, check out some of the other hand creams The Body Shop offers!
The hand cream also promises to conceal any odors your hands may have but I haven't been able to test this claim as my hands usually smell like hand cream of some sort, hehe.
Overall, I love this product but that's really no surprise as I am a huge fan of The Body Shop. They offer so many affordable yet high quality products and they are also cruelty-free, so yay!

What scent of hand cream do you like, do you prefer more herbal? Fruity? Or Sweet? Let me know in the comments below!
