Review: The Body Shop Absinthe Purifying Hand Butter
My hands have been suffering terribly again this winter. Motherhood puts such a strain on our hands; the constant washing after nappy changes, the relentless circle of bottle washing, and the element exposure when pushing the buggy out in the cold again to get your jolly little bundle off to sleep.
So when the lovely folk at The Body Shop sent me the Absinthe Purifying Hand Butter to try, I could have kissed them.
The first thing I noticed about the Absinthe Purifying Hand Butter is the smell; it’s so fresh! It has a gorgeous, zingy fragrance that reminds me of cucumber. The butter texture is thick and a small amount goes a long way.
The hand butter is intensely moisturising, with your skin feeling instantly hydrated, smoother and softer to touch. It contains natural alcohol extract to leave your hands with that fresh feeling (I really loved the tingle it gave my skin when applying it!), and Community Fair Trade shea butter for that intense moisturising effect.
I’ve been applying the Absinthe Purifying Hand Butter every day (2-3 times a day) for just over a week now and my hands are noticeably softer and more hydrated.
The Absinthe Purifying Hand Butter costs £11 for 100ml and is available to buy on The Body Shop website. I would highly recommend this to any Mama or Papa (or Granny/Grandad/Aunt/Uncle) looking for a hand butter that works wonders with dry skin. It’s also the perfect size to pop in your changing bag!
