Crabtree & Evelyn 'Everyday Nature Care' Collection*

November 3, 2017
Everyone knows I'm all about self care so when Crabtree and Evelyn sent me their press release about their new collection of products for the mind and body and asked if I wanted to receive some of the collection I couldn't say yes quick enough. They asked me which products I would like to receive but everything sounded so amazing I let them decide. I mean, how could I ever choose between Rosewater and Pink Peppercorn, Goatmilk and Oat or Lavender and Espresso? It all sounded so amazing, and each range offers different benefits to the mind and body to help you be your best self.

In the end, they sent me out the Lavender and Espresso Hand Therapy* for Calming, the Pomegranate and Argan Oil Soap* and the Pomegranate and Argan Oil Body Lotion*, both for nourishing. I've been trying them out for quite some time (mainly because it's taken me so long to get around to posting this) and I have honestly been long them so much.

Lavender and Espresso Hand Therapy*
I'm a huge fan of hand cream but normally I go for Soap & Glory's Hand Food, or I use my Mam's L'Occitane Lavender hand cream, so I was excited to try this hand cream in comparison. The main thing I love about this collection is the scents. Lavender and espresso really intrigued me and it really didn't disappoint. It smells like Lavender but it's just a little more bitter, which is actually a nice change. Any time I apply this hand cream I genuinely cannot stop smelling my hands and the scent lingers for hours. I don't think I've ever smelled anything so nice in my life. The actually product is amazing as well because it is so moisturising and it dries in immediately. Drying time, for me, regarding hand creams, is one of the most important things because I hate waiting around for it to dry in, and you can't use your phone and everything feels greasy but this hand cream dries in in seconds.

Pomegranate and Argan Oil Soap*
Call me old-fashioned but I love nothing more than a bar of soap. Give me a bar of soap over a bottle of body wash any day. Also, I'm obsessed with the packaging of this soap (I literally hate that I wrote that sentence but I actually do love it so much). At first I wasn't too gone on the scent of this soap, because I prefer warm scents and this, to me, was very summery, but the more I used it, the more it grew on me (similar to Orangeasm by Soap & Glory). Unlike a lot of soap bars. this one actually tends to the skin and doesn't feel as though it is drying your skin out. It's really calming and gentle on the skin and can be used all over the body or solely for the hands.

Pomegranate and Argan Oil Body Lotion*
Like the Pomegranate and Argan Oil Soap, I wasn't initially a fan of the scent of this product but, again, it grew on me and now I actually quite like it. The product itself is brilliant, although I still would refer something a little less 'fresh' coming into the winter months, I can't deny that it is super nourishing and my tan goes on so smoothly after using this, and I can still catch the smell hours later even after applying tan, which I've never experienced with other similar products.

All in all, I'd give what I've tried from this collection a massive thumbs ups because it honestly does feel a little more luxurious than other products I've tried. I'm still not 100% convinced on the Pomegranate and Argan Oil scent but maybe I would prefer it coming into spring and  summer, but I'm a massive fan of the hand cream, not only because it's a fab product but, because it smells so amazing. I definitely want to get some more of the Lavender and Espresso range particularly coming into the winter months.

Have you tried anything from Crabtree & Evelyn yet?
