The Body Shop Absinthe Manicure Gift Set

The Body Shop always comes out with great holiday gift sets, and this year has been no exception! The Body Shop's Absinthe Manicure Gift Set* ($22 CDN) contains a full size 100ml Absinthe Purifying Hand Cream (reviewed here), which is normally $20 on its' own (although The Body Shop does constantly run great deals). You also receive 3 great manicure tools, making this set a great gift - either for yourself or for someone special in your life. 

"All the essentials to leave your hands and nails feeling soft and super-fresh, presented in an aluminium tin. With Community Fair Trade shea butter from Ghana
Absinthe Hand Cream 100ml
Mini Four-way Nail Buffer
Nail File
Nail Clippers" - The Body Shop

I do really love The Body Shop's Hand Creams, and the Absinthe formula is one of the lighter options. I really like this hand cream in the Spring and Summer, but my hands get so dry in the Winter that I need a heavier option. This gift set also comes in the Almond formula, which I find is a bit more moisturizing. The nail file included in this set is actually really great and is great for daily use. The nail clippers are a bit small, but that makes them great for travelling. 

Overall, I think that this set would make a good gift, and it's already packaged up nicely in a festive green tin - no need for additional wrapping! The Body Shop does seem to run deals on their hand creams quite regularly (they are currently half price, so $10 for 100ml), so that would make this set seem like a poor value. The Body Shop seems to always have some sort of deal going on, so definitely try to keep an eye out for any sales if you're planning to do some holiday shopping there! 

Have you tried the Absinthe range from The Body Shop? Have you already started your holiday shopping, or even started thinking about it? :)
