Is this a sanitizer?I can't figure this product out. Unlike the other gels, they are calling this one a "purifying" gel. If it's a sanitizer that kills microorganisms, why isn't that in the description anywhere? The other hand sanitizers say "Kills 99.9% of germs." If it's not, then... it's a useless product and don't buy it, because you're just rubbing some random amount of alcohol into your skin. Body Shop, please publish this info! I love The Body Shop's hand sanitizers; they're the only ones I buy.As far as this product othewise... I like the scent, mostly. It's clean and herby, only a little too perfumed. My hands are very dry and I always put body butter (olive) on after the sanitizing gel, and the fragrance of the gel isn't too strong at all.

DisappointedI have always loved TBS' hand washes, but this stuff just smells bad. I can't for the life of me figure out why they discontinued all of the hand washes with pleasant odors. Please bring back strawberry, mango and lemon so my hands don't have to wreak of Absinthe.

Good Hand WashThis smells nice and fresh, not flowerly just fresh and green. it's good to keep in the kitchen to wash away odors from food such as onions when cooking. It doesn't leave your hands dry either. It's great stuff. I intend to purchase another bottle.

pleasant smellI bought this as something to carry around in my backpack at school, just to keep my hands fresh. I really like the smell, but I can understand the people that think it's too overpowering, because it's definitely strong. I would recommend making sure you like the smell, but it's a great product. I plan on buying more from the absinthe line.

Wonderful Unique ScentI really love this scent! It's very clean and fresh but unique. Even my husband liked and he usually hates anything with a scent. I was expecting to be a little licoric-y like absinthe, but it's not. It does have herbal notes like absinthe though. It's definitely something that could be used by men, as it's decidedly not feminine, but I also wouldn't call it masculine either. I plan to stock up on this line just in case it disappears, but I really hope it sticks around. Definitely give it a try!
