This came at a timely moment as I was about to go shop for hand wash. Presenting The Bodyshop’s entire purifying hand care collection!
We often neglect our hands while paying more attention to the face. But have you ever given it a thought, that when you meet someone new. You extend your hand forward for a warm handshake and first impression counts. Your hands work hard for you and you should pamper them with The Bodyshop’s Absinthe Purifying Hand Care collection.
What is Absinthe?
That is the main ingredient in this Purifying range. It is an absinthe extract which is also known as wormwood or Artemisia absinthium. Wormwood has a history that dates centuries back where people have been using it for mainly medicinal purposes.
A shrub-like perennial, wormwood is a key ingredient in absinthe, the emerald-coloured alcoholic drink, helping to give the beverage its distinctive bitter taste. known as the green fairy or l’atroce sorcière, absinthe has long captured the public’s imagination with its seductive air of danger.
Very innovative of TBS’s marketing team to send an edible plant. If I’m not wrong, the soil is made of Oreo. I was almost tricked for a moment when I wanted to take my new little plant out for some sunlight.
This range consists of Hand butter, hand gel, hand wash & hand cream. Your total must have for a full hand care kit.
Give hands a blissful treat with this intensely moisturising hand butter with a luxurious texture that simply melts into the skin. Say goodbye to dry hands and hello to wonderfully fresh-feeling hands.
True to its name, it simple melts onto skin like butter. A richer alternative to the hand cream, this is good for nights before you go to bed especially if you sleep in an air-conditioned room.
Absinthe Purifying Hand Gel S$6.90
Hands are perfectly purified without running water with this handy hand gel that conceals odours. Simply apply and allow to dry. Pop in your pocket or bag so hands are prepared for whatever comes their way.
I love how convenient this is and as a mother, this is very useful. It’s going into the diaper bag straight.
Absinthe Purifying Hand Wash S$14.90
Dirt? Banished! Bad odours? No longer! Enjoy clean, moisturised and refreshed hands with the new Purifying Hand Wash. Lather up to enjoy the fabulously fragrant bubbles.
Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream S$21.90
Make this lusciously light and fragrant hand cream your new handbag essential. Apply whenever hands need a shot of fresh moisture; to conceal bad odors; or when you crave a feeling of refreshment.
The one thing that I love most about this range is the refreshing scent. Like how a mojito re-energizes you after a long day of work, the Absinthe Purifying range gives you that same buzz each time you use it. Be it washing your hands or apply some hand cream to moistened your dry skin. It not only combats bad odours but also gives you a little perk-me-up for your hands.
