Its been a while since I updated any blog post leaving me so incomplete for I could not set my thoughts free… I have been splurging and pampering myself since the start of this month and I have to tell you its awesome! ♥
Crabtree and Evelyn was founded in 1972 and has produced many award winning hand care products ever since. They got the inspiration for introducing Hand- Care from hardworking Gardeners; whose hands endured the fury of blazing sun and worked in the deepest muck in an attempt to keep our surroundings beautiful.
My casual window-shopping visit to Crabtree & Evelyn turned into a bliss as the extremely welcoming manager gave me the free trials and boy! the difference was notable…
Hardly anyone knows but I, deep inside, have always craved for soft and smooth hands! I like going for occasional manicure but it is a big hole in my unusually small pocket stumbling to survive in circumstantial budget rises each day (As my Boyfie puts this: First world problems). Either-ways, I think I am in love some of their products!
Gardeners Hand Recovery: Treat hands to double the indulgence in one hardworking product. Our Gardeners Hand Recovery simultaneously exfoliates and moisturizes to rid hands of aged skin cells and enrich newly revealed skin. Soothing natural emollients complete the treat for a butter-soft finish.
How & What:
- Best to use 2-3 times a week
- Exfoliates and moisturises in one step
- Macadamia nut oil and shea butter help soothe and condition
- Formulated without lauryl sulfates, mineral oil, parabens or propylene glycol
The Texture of the scrub is hard at first but you can feel the softness as you mix the scrub with water. It neither bruises nor feels too rough on the skin during the application. The results are immediate as the skin tone becomes a shade lighter for all the dead skins are shooed away and hands are left with a buttery soft smoothness!
Somerset Meadow: Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy: Lock in lashings of moisture with our Somerset Meadow Hand Therapy. Infused with shea butter, macadamia nut oil and a fresh green fruity-floral scent, this intensive cream nourishes skin so it’s noticeably smoother after each luxurious use.
How & What:
- Contains hydrating ceramides and conditioning water lily and ivy extracts
- Myrrh extract helps condition nails and cuticles
- Formulated without colour, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates or propylene glycol
I absolutely adore this hand creme for its pleasant smell! It is indeed so fresh and such summer scent that I religiously apply the hand cream each day. My hands are hooked to its silky smoothness and this is the reason why I fell in love with Crabtree & Evelyn at the first place. I tend to bite my nails, a habit I wanted to get rid off for nearly a decade now. Since the first time I used the hand scrub and hand creme I have been obsessing over my hands and I stopped chewing my nails off (Weird but true)! I adore with my soft and pretty hands and haven’t bitten my nails for over a month now.
Nail & Cuticle Therapy Cream: The secret ingredient to glossy, healthy-looking nails. Formulated with panthenol and keratin, our Gardeners Nail & Cuticle Therapy Cream helps protect nails and soften dry, flaking cuticles. So you can wave hello to beautiful nails.
Application: Apply to nails and cuticles morning and night for best results
Its a medium runny cream which protects our nails and get rid of those ugly cuticles! Cuticles are very irritating for they tempt you into biting the dead skin off (Urggh.. one second of pleasure from a very unhealthy habit). From cuticles you advance towards your nails which leaves your nails broken, unshaped and brittle. Not to forget those erroneous attempts that pulls out the new skin cells resulting in bleeding edges for your nails.
Crème De Menthe Lip Butter: Keep cool and conditioned with our Crème De Menthe Lip Butter. Packed with four nourishing butters and two botanical oils, this beauty secret weapon serves up a lustrous shine and a fresh minty flavor. For lips that are completely pout-worthy and a little bit sweet.
How & What:
- Beeswax protects lips and seals in moisture
- Slender tube is easy to take along for anytime application
I have tried many Lip Butters over the years though I prefer home healthy remedies for keeping my lips soft and luscious but curiosity always gets better of me! This is a mild, pleasantly sweet & see through lip butter. Caution: Its super addictive for I tend to lick it off my lips within minutes… which means I end up re-applying it countless times a day. Its not exactly the best lip butter but you should definitely hit the nearest shop for some crazy hand care products!
