Crabtree & Evelyn Review & Give-a-way ends






About: I'm sure a lot of you have heard of Crabtree & Evelyn before now. Although I've always seen the brand and smelled it as I've walked by in the mall I hadn't actually tried any of their products until this review and I can personally say that I've been missing out on some really, really good products!

Founded in 1972 by Cyrus Harvey, Crabtree & Evelyn has evolved from a small, family-run business – specializing in fine soaps from around the world – to an international company, well known and respected for its original fragrances, luxurious toiletries, gourmet foods - and gifts for those who enjoy a sophisticated lifestyle. Long before the natural and wellness movement became popular, Crabtree & Evelyn was wholeheartedly embracing the riches of the natural world, introducing product ranges made with fruit, flower and plant essences. They are dedicated to creating products and gifts that transform the ordinary rituals of daily life into extraordinary pleasurable experiences.


The Products:
I was sent several products from their new Citron Body Care Line. I received the Skin Smoothing Body Scrub, Refreshing Body Bar (set of 3), Skin Cleansing Bath and Shower Gel, Skin Indulging Body Souffle and the Skin Quenching Body Lotion.



I was also sent 3 of their Lip Butters in the flavors - Citron Creme & Honey, Creamy Mint and Vanilla Brulee.


The Review: I was impressed with Crabtree & Evelyn from the moment my package arrived. Everything was neatly packaged in this pretty gift box below. Presentation is huge and they get high points from me in this category! The tissue paper even has their logo on it, love that! Not only is the packaging so wonderful but you could smell the products as soon as the lid came off!



The fragrance of the new Citron Body Care Line is a fresh citron and lemon leaf with a 'bite" of peppery coriander and subtle woody accents. Oh my goodness I can't tell you how great these products smell! They are so yummy! Not only do they smell amazing but the actual products themselves are so luxurious - the scrub makes my skin feel sooooo good and the body wash leaves my skin smelling so fresh! Then top it all off with the super conditioning body souffle, all I can say is I am in LOVE!!!

Thank you Crabtree & Evelyn you definitely have a new customer here!! I can't wait to try some of their other fragrances!
