For Those With A Green Thumb♥️*

Ever since Crabtree & Evelyn got in touch with me in February about reviewing their hand creams (you can read the review here), I've been hooked. I was contacted again by them but this time asking if I was interested in trying out their Gardeners Collection. It was a range that I was intrigued by - as it was a gardeners collection, I was curious to the scent of the products. I knew that no matter what they sent me, I'd love the products.

Exfoliating Soap* - Any exfoliator that I've tried have came in a tube or tub, but I was really captivated by the idea of this - it was incorporated into a bar of soap. Never have I ever seen anything quite like it. Recently I had used some of the Dove Gradual Tan Lotion (review coming soon) to sort out my tan lines (I was going wearing a dress so had to even it up) and due to a combination of using some tan and having dry skin, my skin began to flake, so I opted to use this. It helps to exfoliate your skin, removing any dead skin cells (and patchy tan!) effectively. My only issue with this bar is that it's quite harsh, so I only use it once a week or every so often, and for people with sensitive skin, this bar may not be for them, or alternatively, they could use it very rarely. I quite like the concept of this bar because it's not as messy as typical exfoliators and it's certainly quicker to use!

Hand Therapy*  - If you read my review about the hand creams back in February, you will know I adored them. When I saw that it was a hand cream from the Gardeners collection, I was pretty smitten. I knew that my skin would quickly absorb the hand cream due to previous use. The scent is unique, it's one that's quite light and not too overpowering, yet is extremely difficult to pin point exactly - I feel it's one that would smell different to everyone. Much like their other hand creams, only a small blob is required. It's not too heavy or greasy, meaning you could apply it any time of the day and continue with your day as it wouldn't restrict you. Personally, I like to apply it at night before going to bed because it means that it gives it plenty of time overnight to sink into my skin.

All-Purpose Balm* - I'm yet to find an actual use for this balm even though it is an all-purpose one. I find it quite difficult to use unfortunately because it feels quite thick and waxy, but I guess that it's formula is designed like this as it's meant to combat dry skin. Ideally, I use it on my elbows and knees due to them often being neglected as they're the joints, but apart from that, I don't think I'd go out my way to use it elsewhere. With that being said though, if you happen to suffer from small, random patches of dry skin, it may be more ideal. Sorry Crabtree, but this product isn't one for me - if you suffer from dry skin, I think this would be the product for you!

All of the products have the same scent as they're from the same collection. When I was first contacted and realised it was a gardeners collection, I wasn't too sure on whether I'd like the scent or not, but nonetheless, gave the products a bash. At first it seems a little odd, but after a while, you actually grow to like it - it's on the fresh side, something that's quite revitalising and peculiar.

Have you tried anything from their new Gardeners collection?
