What makes it different (and better) then any other hand cream that I've tried lately is how my hands feel after applying - I should preface this by saying that one of my very favourite hand creams is The Body Shop Hemp one which is amazingly moisturizing but so greasy that I only use it at night, never during the day because it ends up leaving snail trails everywhere! On the other hand (hands), the Absinthe cream soaks right in and leaves my hands feeling fresh - which I realize is a weird way to describe a hand cream benefit but entirely accurate - as well as moisturized but not in a way like I just put cream on because there is none of the usual filmy feeling that is found with most creams.
And if that all wasn't enough, it also smells great with notes of bergamot, petit grain and neroli!
If you have the kind of job/life (fish monger, massage parlour worker etc.) that leaves you with stinky hands you'll be happy to know that not only does the line moisturize and purify, it also conceals odour!
Also available in the new Absinthe line is a Purifying Hand Butter - 100ml - $20, Purifying Hand Gel - 60ml - $2 and Purifying Hand Wash - 250ml - $10.
