Crabtree & Evelyn Samples : Photos, Brief Review, Swatches

Crabtree and Evelyn makes some amazing body lotions and hand creams. If you are still new to the brand I highly recommend you to visit the store and try a couple of their bath and body products as they offer a generous amount of product for you to try and test. Chennaities were lucky enough to have a store newly opened in Express Avenue. I am really thankful to my friend who made me visit the store and buy a handful of products. I got 4 samples along with my purchase and today I will give you all a brief review of the same.

Crabtree & Evelyn Product Samples

I got the following 4 samples
  • Somerset Meadow Scented Body Lotion
  • Pomegranate Hand Therapy
  • Evelyn Rose Hand Therapy
  • Evelyn Rose Body Lotion

Somerset Meadow Scented Body Lotion

The body lotion is light and just glides on the skin like butter. Being a light lotion it gets absorbed instantly by the skin. This would be an amazing body lotion for summers and the fragrance makes it more summery ! All I could relate with the fragrance of this body lotion is a sweet green amazing fresh aroma. The fragrance stays for an hour maximum and the effect stays for good 5 hours on my dry skin. A great body lotion for summers.

Rating - 4/5

Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Scented Body Lotion

Pomegranate Hand Therapy

The hand therapy comes with the added benefits of argan and grapeseed oil. It is a thick cream which gets absorbed easily by the skin and keeps my hand away from dryness. All hand creams I have tried so far from this brand has never disappointed me and this one is not an exception too. I love my hands when I have applied these hand creams. However, oily skin might feel this a bit greasy and I would say this would best suit dry skin. The only problem I find with this is the fragrance, which is not my kind of fragrance and beyond a point I just go and wash my hands as it becomes unbearable ! So sniff this before buying it.

Rating - 3/5

Crabtree & Evelyn Pomegranate Argan & Grapeseed Oil Hand Therapy

Evelyn Rose Hand Therapy

I expected Evelyn Rose hand therapy to smell very similar to the rose water range but I love the way they made it smell so good and different from the Rose water range. A light floral fragrance is locked in that thick cream that gets absorbed by my skin instantly. However, I find the need to reapply it after a few hours as my skin gets super dry in winters. This would be a good hand therapy for normal-oily skin. Fragrance is mild and good too.

Rating - 3.5/5

Crabtree & Evelyn Evelyn Rose Hand Therapy

Evelyn Rose Body Lotion

Evelyn Rose body lotion smells exactly the same as the Evelyn Rose hand therapy that is absolutely amazing and mild at the same time. The lotion is really flow -y and light that I take a generous amount every time for my dry skin and apply it. It gets absorbed instantly without leaving any greasy feeling behind. Again the lotion is light for my dry skin so I would prefer this for summers over winters.

Rating - 3.5/5

Crabtree & Evelyn Product Sample Swatches

Except the Pomegranate Hand Therapy [just because of the fragrance] I love rest of products. If you haven't tried anything from this brand then start with a good hand cream of your choice and you will fall in love with this brand.
