The Most Refreshing Range Ever♥*

You'd never have guessed that I adore Crabtree and Evelyn, would you? Every single product I've tried I have loved, and not once have I been let down by anything. Their quirky packaging, high quality products and delicious scents are sure to win over anyone. Of all of the products I've tried, their scents are vibrant and strong yet not too overpowering nor sickly, and for me, I find it important that if I use a body lotion, I can still smell it hours later without overpowering my perfume, and Crabtree seriously ace this.

Recently, Crabtree launched a new line, their Every Day Nature's Care, which has six available ranges which claim to have benefits for both your mind and well-being. The six ranges include Lavender and Espresso (helps to calm you), Rosewater and Pink Peppercorn (helps to hydrate), Citron and Coriander (helps to energise), Pomegranate and Argan Oil (helps to nourish), Pear and Pink Magnolia (helps to uplift) and Goatmilk and Oat (helps to soothe), so there is a collection for everyone and to suit everyone's needs. Each range also has a different colour scheme, which I believe Crabtree have tried to colour coordinate according to the products in the specific range. When I was contacted and asked what products I wished to review, I did struggle, but instantly I was attracted to their Citron and Coriander range, but also curious to their Rosewater and Pink Peppercorn range too.

As you can see, the colours on the packaging are bright, vivid and bold, and in my opinion are sure to catch anyone's eye. Also, I think that the colour schemes for each range are ever so appropriate - could you imagine the Citron range having a blue label as opposed to yellow? I certainly couldn't as the yellow compliments it. The packaging itself is typical of Crabtree - nothing too obscure and daring, which I like - and they have kept the label to a minimum, looking professional and also smart. The label has a simple font - none of this bizarre and wild fonts you get. All in all, I think they have created a line with such playful and energising packaging.

Citron and Coriander Body Lotion* - if I were to pick one word to describe the scent, it would be tangy. I absolutely adore it, and if there's any body lotion that screams Summer, it has got to be this one. It's refreshing and fruity, and when I first saw it was infused with coriander, I was seriously intrigued as to how it would work with citrus. It turns out that it's a match made in heaven, they blend together perfectly and produce a beautiful scent. The formula has been created to such a fantastic quality; it feels creamy and dreamy, without the dreaded sticky, greasy feeling that some body lotions can, and feels very lightweight. Less is more with regards to this body lotion, I only need two pumps for the bottom half of my legs. My skin absorbs this really quickly, so it's a case of moisturise, get dressed and you're ready to go - no waiting around. I have also noticed that when I'm wearing jeans, I'm actually able to smell the scent through the fabric, but no complaints there whatsoever - it's gorgeous. It included a blend of lemon, honey, coriander and shea butter to ensure that your skin feels as energised as can be.

Rosewater and Peppercorn Hand Recovery* - if you have followed my blog for majority of this year, you will have read posts where I am raving about Crabtree's hand creams (you can read them here and here), so when I saw a hand recovery, I was curious to say the least. I had purposely chosen a different range to the body lotion because I wanted to try out the scent in this range. I must admit, I really like the concept to this product; it's practically a hand scrub. I haven't had much experience in the past with a hand scrub, possibly not even any, so I was eager to try it out and see how it worked. On my first use, I only used a small amount, perhaps the size of a 20p coin, on my damp hands and the scrub seemed to work well by doing this. It didn't irritate nor feel too harsh on my hands, and after I rinse my hands, they instantly felt smoother. The next time I used it, my hands felt just as good as the first use. It's fair to say I'm blown away by it. I try to avoid over-scrubbing, so try to limit usage to only twice a week, followed by a hand balm. I know for a fact that this will be a life saver in the Winter, especially when my hands are dry and cracked. I highly recommend this for someone who suffers from dry hands, but if you have sensitive skin, I would avoid using incase it irritates your hands.

Crabtree have not disappointed me yet again. There's definitely a range suitable for everyone depending on their tastes. Personally, I love their Citron and Coriander range, and if you love anything refreshing, definitely invest into this range!

Have you tried anything from Crabtree?

  2. Hi Jasmine,

    I've never tried any Crabtree products but this post makes me want to pop by my nearest store and buy some skincare! I also heard that Crabtree sells biscuits and think that's pretty unique.

    I love the photography in this post and how you described the product in detail to give us a good idea about the quality of the product. I have just gotten a mango body scrub from the Body Shop recently and I can't wait to try it out too.
