|Absinthe Hand Gel and Hand Cream|
To me, the word absinthe smacks of alcohol. Just really, really strong alcohol, (and the Green Fairy in Moulin Rouge...), so I was very pleasantly surprised with the gorgeous minty, mouthwatering-ly fresh essence this range emits. It's packed full of Shea Butter, so it moisturises a treat, but the main purpose is to conceal odour. Think chopping garlic, or gardening, it's perfect for hardworking hands (or like me, just pampering before bed).
It really does work, I have a penchant for making Thai Green curry, which I love to chop onions and garlic and anything else under the sun, before whacking it all in. Normally, as those Nigella's out there know, Garlic is a bitch to remove from your fingers. Cold water, hot water...soap?! Nothing really does the trick, but this cream is like a mouthwash for the digits, a fresh, soothing wave of odour-neautralising bliss.
I bought the Hand Gel and the Hand Cream, the gel more for travelling around, and keeping mitts clean on the go, whilst the cream for a bit of scented luxury, post cooking or not! I love them both, and I am already looking to re-purchase, especially in one of The Body Shop's crazy discount offers!
Let me know if you have tried this, I am in love! I think I might be addicted to minty scented mitts, mmm delicious!
Love Lauren xx
