Crabtree and Evelyn Have Done It Again♥️*

In my experience, I have used many body lotions, some of which are too greasy and thick, whilst others are too thin and watery - it is tricky to ace the right formula to suit everyone's preference. Then I was introduced to Crabtree and Evelyn's Old World Jasmine Body Lotion* and it wasn't before long that I converted to using this as my current body lotion. I must admit - it's possibly an ideal summer body lotion due to it's formula.

If there's one thing I hate about body lotions, it's those that come in tube packaging. I just hate it, I find it awkward and annoying to actually get the product out. That's why I really like the design of this product because it has a pump, meaning you are able to use the required amount of lotion without using too much and wasting it. As the scent is "old world Jasmine", you can definitely notice the distinct floral notes in the scent, and it's not overpowering, in fact, it's quite light and delicate. I do however think that it could be a bit too much for sensitive skin so you must be wary before purchasing if you have sensitive skin. Once your skin has absorbed the lotion though, I don't think that the scent is overly noticeable - I couldn't say I have ever noticed it anyway.

Now, the real question - what's the formula like? I do think Crabtree have smashed this one. It certainly isn't watery nor is it thick, it's just in the middle. A small amount goes a long way for sure, and if that doesn't prove anything, I don't know what will. It doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy either, it just feels smooth and hydrated. Lately, I've had some dry patches on my arms and I've used this lotion and I can truthfully say that it has helped clear them up. My skin also absorbs the lotion quite quickly, and I put this down to the fact that the formula isn't overly thick. It's one of those lotions that you could pop on and go as you don't need to wait around for a while waiting for it to dry.

The body lotion is described as being a luxurious hydrating body lotion, and it most certainly is. For £24, you get a 300ml bottle WITH a pump. For the size of it, and how little you need to use, I know for a fact this bottle will last me a while.

Have you ever tried this body lotion?
