There’s just something so lovely about Crabtree & Evelyn products. They come in beautiful packaging, smell glorious, and of course, pamper skin and spirits equally well.
This September, Crabtree & Evelyn is launching an impressive new collection: the Pomegranate, Argan and Grapeseed Collection. The collection was inspired by the succulent fruits and nourishing oils of Morocco, with hand a body products that feature luxe, replenishing botanical ingredients and natural antioxidants. Each product has been formulated with ingredients that are specially selected for their skin-conditioning properties including Nourishing pomegranate (long associated with hope, fertility and prosperity), fair trade argan oil (sourced in Morocco) and grapeseed and pistachio oils, and antioxidant rich ginger extract, plus conditioning and hydrating aprictor extract and shea butter. The scent is tart and fruity at the top, but there are some light, floral notes as well. It’s energizing, and uplifting. You can really smell the tart and sweet essemce of Pomegranate, plus some citrus and clementine blossom and fresh fig leaf. It is the perfect Fall fragrance blend. Naturally effective, enriching yet refreshing, the Pomegranate Body and Hand Care products are ideal for all skin types and are formulated without sodium lauryl sulphate, parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol and mineral oil.
Here is the rundown on the entire collection, with some additional notes on the items I experienced:
