Crabtree and Evelyn: Rosewater and Pink Peppercorn Collection

It’s no secret that I love a nice scented product. If a bath and body product is unscented, I’m not naturally excited about it. So when this collection from Crabtree & Evelyn landed on my doorstep recently I couldn’t wait to get a sniff.

I haven’t tried anything from Crabtree and Evelyn before, even though there is a great store at Victoria Square in Belfast who are always advertising lovely treatments and treats for customers. I just never thought about popping in! And I call myself a product-obsessed beauty blogger? Shame on me!

The collection is designed primarily to add hydration and inject some serious moisture into the skin, perfect for the weather we’ve been subjected to recently!

Scented with fragrant rose petals, spicy pink peppercorn, bergamot, tonka bean and fresh peony, this collection smells absolutely divine. Initially sweet and feminine but with a spicy, masculine twist coming from the peppercorn and bergamot, it’s not quite like anything else that I own and I can’t get enough.

I have been fortunate enough to try out three products from the line.

The first product that I tried was the body wash. This pink gel wash is a natural cleanser that claims to deeply cleanse the skin without stripping it. The gel lathers with ease, it surprised me in relation to how little product I actually needed to use to produce a good lather – a little goes a long way. A small amount on my loofah each morning produces a wonderful frothy, foamy lather. The scent is delicate and not at all overpowering but lingers on the skin which makes the wash feel very luxurious. After use my skin doesn’t feel at all tight like it can if I used cheaper washes. The gel is priced at £16.00 for 250ml so it is on the pricey side for a body wash, however it’s a beautiful treat and if you like Molton and Brown body washes, this is certainly comparable.

After cleansing my skin with the hydrating wash, I drenched my skin further with moisture by slathering myself in the amazing Body Gel from the collection. The gel is super lightweight and sinks in like a dream, perfect for mornings when I want to get dressed quickly and don’t want to wait on products sinking in or drying. The texture is not like anything I’ve used before in relation to body moisturisers and feels almost like a serum to touch. After use, my skin has been super soft and hydrated and the scent is even more noticeable. There have been many mornings when I have been able to forgo perfume! The pot has a whopping 250ml of product and costs £30.00. A pot will last for a very long time as similarly to the body wash, you only need a little. I have enjoyed this product so much that I will definitely repurchase it when it runs out!

The final product that I’ve tried from the collection was the 60 Second Fix For Hands. Honestly, I’m not great at remembering to put hand cream on. I have a tonne of creams in my drawers at home and I just simply forget to use them. This cute little set contains a Hand Therapy and a Hand Recovery to be used in conjunction to produce silky smooth skin.  Use the Hand Recovery first to exfoliate and soften rough skin and prime the hands for the Hand Therapy which is designed to hydrate and deeply moisturise the skin, leaving your hands ‘petal soft’. I’ve used the kit a few times and I did notice a big difference to my hands. They were much softer and felt less tight as they had received some much needed moisture. I would definitely try to add this kit into my pamper night routine to do once a week!

Do you like Crabtree and Evelyn? What should I try next?

Thanks for reading!
