Keeping My Skin Hydrated This Winter With Crabtree & Evelyn

Saturday, 21 December 2019

Feelunique very kindly sent me over some Crabtree & Evelyn products over about a month ago to try out. All of the products are about giving your skin some extra love and hydration during the colder months so I couldn't wait to get stuck into trying out the products. 

When I saw the Evelyn Rose Velvet Body Melt RRP £31.50* in the box I literally went "Oooo" because I just loved the look and sound of it. The Body Melt is infused with Murumuru Butter, Rosehip Seed Oil and Rose Water which makes it super moisturising and I love anything that's floral scented. The Rose scent in the Evelyn Rose range I've tried (so far) is quite a light scent and it's not super overpowering like some rose or floral scents, in general can be. I've been using the Body Melt quite a bit and I really like it. The cream melts into an oil when you massage it into your skin which leaves your skin feeling super soft! Another great thing about this is that it doesn't leave you feeling greasy like a lot of oil-based products do. So, so far I'm a big fan of the Velvet Body Melt and I can definitely see myself picking another one up as a treat to myself when I run out.


I was also sent two more products from the Evelyn Rose range, First up is the Satin Hand Cream 75ml RRP £20.50* which contains coconut oil which is known for being super hydrating, aloe vera and mallow flower extract and it's also enriched with nourishing rosehip oil and rose water too. It's a really nice, luxurious hand cream, a great one to pick up if you're putting together a luxury beauty hamper for someone whether it be for Christmas or a birthday gift or something along those lines. You can also buy it in a 25ml tube for £9 if you want to try it before committing to buying the full size for yourself. 

The other product from the Evelyn Rose range I was sent is the Soft Touch Face Foam RRP £13.50* which I'll admit I was a little wary about using at first because as I've said before, I tend to find foaming cleansers quite drying on my skin. However, I think because it contains ingredients such as crambe abyssinica, rose water and coconut water, I feel like it didn't leave my skin feeling stripped of any "good oils" like a lot of foam cleansers do. I think if I consistently used the Soft Touch Face Foam for multiple days without using something more hydrating in between (I've been using Glossier's Milky Jelly Cleanser as my evening cleanser) then I think my skin would be feeling a bit drier after use. But overall I've found it to be quite a nice, refreshing cleanser to use in the morning.


Lastly is the Crabtree Renew + Nourish Hand Cream RRP £20.50* which has more of a stronger scent, I'll be honest I'm not sure if it's aimed at men or if it's a unisex product but either way I would definitely pick this up again because I really like it! It contains apple fruit water and skin-softening shea butter which is great at moisturising whilst the apple AHA's work away to gently exfoliate your skin. It's super moisturising but doesn't leave any sort of oily residue behind and I like that it contains AHAs because it means it also exfoliates your skin whilst moisturising too. I think it would be a great product for someone who suffers from really dry hands and/or has quite a hands-on kind of job.

Have you tried anything from Crabtree & Evelyn before?
