Crabtree & Evelyn Will Save You This Valentine♥*

Throughout Winter, my hands get incredibly dry and sore. Being blessed with the beautiful and freezing Scottish weather all year round means that due to the cold, my hands are guaranteed to end up with dry skin. This is when I decide I need to use hand cream, whether I like it or not. Crabtree & Evelyn are a brand which I see over social media with people praising their products, particularly their hand creams, and when I was contacted, I was more than ready for a challenge.

I was sent three of their Valentine's Range hand creams; Rosewater*Evelyn Rose* and Pear and Pink Magnolia*. First thing I noticed was that they are all following a pretty, girly pink theme, and I personally adore that touch, seeing as they are for Valentines Day after all. The packaging is ever so cute, but I like how it still looks quite simple and minimal. 

Rosewater*; This hand cream has a strong, distinct scent of rose, and I know that some people are funny when it comes to rose scented items, but to be honest, it doesn't bother me too much. I do find that after the skin absorbs it, the scent isn't too noticeable. I do really like this hand cream though regardless of the scent!

Evelyn Rose*; I find the scent of this hand cream to be rather soft and delicate. It smells pleasant however I cannot quite pin point the exact smell. Although it's a delicate scent, it's also rather "clean", one which would make a marvellous scent for a candle in my opinion.

Pear and Pink Magnolia*; Out of the three, this scent is definitely the most obscure and unique one. It's got quite a sharp scent, which is more on the fruity side as opposed to a floral scent like the last two. It reminds me of some sort of scent that the Body Shop would adapt to one of their body butters or something. If I had to pick, I would say that this one is my favourite of the three purely because the scent is more likely something I would buy myself.

The best part about these hand creams is that they aren't greasy at all. A tiny blob honestly goes the longest way, and I have found that my skin absorb them in record breaking time (for a hand cream anyway!) I recently had a few dry patches on my hand from the cold, so I instantly decided to give these a bash and thankfully, my hands aren't as bad as they had been. I apply some each night before bed, and when I wake up in the morning, my hands are as smooth as can be!


My favourite thing has to of course be the cheeky tin of biscuits they sent on over too. I received the rose and white chocolate ones, however I cannot seem to find them on their site. These are delicious; they smell exactly like shortbread and taste heavenly. Not to mention how beautiful the tin is that it came in - it has quite a vintage feel to it in my opinion!

So if you want super, soft hands, then Crabtree and Evelyn are the way to go. Their hand creams come in a 25g and a 100g tube so whichever takes your fancy, go for it. I promise they won't let you down!

How do you achieve super soft hands?

  6. Crabtree and Evelyn is old school ladylike. Good to find hand creams that absorbs. Most just sit on the hands making everything slippery. And they're so pretty too!

  8. I'm not a huge fan of rose scented products but I use rose water as part of my skincare and it works wonders, so I'm pretty sure these hand creams are great.

    Thanks for sharing!
