Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange Hand Therapy : Photos, Review, Swatch

If you say hand creams, the first few words that comes to my mind are Crabtree & Evelyn. I have already said a lot about how much I love their hand creams HERE. Though I am a huge fan of their Rose Water range I couldn't just stop myself from trying their other variants. When I visited their store at the Express Avenue Mall they had a wide range of options to choose from and I decided not to confuse myself too much. I just tried [sniffed] two different variants and decided to go with the Tarocco range. Glad they had a travel kit for me to try and this hand therapy is a part of their travel kit shown HERE.

Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange Hand Therapy


As I mentioned earlier this hand cream/hand therapy is a part of the travel kit and in spite of not being a full sized product I loved the way they packed it inside a box. It made the product look and feel like a luxury product. The hand therapy comes in a orange colored tube that makes it very hygenic and travel-friendly too. As I squeeze the tube a little a thick white colored cream pops out and once I spread it on my skin it just melts like butter and gets absorbed easily. The cream however falls under the 'thick' category thus making it more suitable for dry skin and it would help other skin types during winter. Talking about the fragrance it predominantly smells citrus (or) orange-y with an equal amount of creaminess that is with all the C&E Hand Therapy. The fragrance wouldn't last for more than an hour but still I love how it leaves my skin moisturized for the next 6-8 hours !

  • The cream is thick yet gets quickly absorbed by the skin. So I find it easy while rushing out or even while in the car.
  • I quite like the packaging - it looks very royal.
  • I quite like the packaging - it is very hygenic as it comes in a tube.
  • I quite like the packaging - it is very travel-friendly.
  • It smells good [fragrance is a personal opinion so do try this one before getting it].
  • Available in trial (or) travel size.
  • Leaves my hand moisturized and smooth for 6-8 hours easily.

  • I just wish all their hand creams did not have that creaminess in the fragrance without which it would have made this one a very fresh smelling hand cream !

I have already tried the hand therapy from Crabtree & Evelyn and I was super impressed to try one more variant. I chose the Tarocco Orange Hand Therapy after trying it once at the store and I liked the fragrance too. Girls with oily skin can skip this easily as they might find this a bit greasy or just reserve this for winters however for dry skin this hand therapy is truly a blessing. Once I started using their hand creams my hands look and feel much better and I am more confident while doing the NOTD posts.

  1. I've started liking their hand creams Aarthi.. Totally agree with ur review.. me getting more variants soon :)

    1. Wowwwwww :) C'mon lets go shopping together then ;)

  2. oo..It is so bright..and sounds awesome..

    1. It is amazing Bhumi :)

  3. Too bad....its not for oily skin...xoxoxo.....:)

  4. I have never tried any hand cream,but this tempts me.I am a great lover of orange fruit.but the price tag?????? how much does it cost if purchased alone?.different creams are needed for arms and hand,plz clarify,bcoz u tempted me enough to drool over this.

    1. Lakshmi, I am sure the bigger and individual version of the hand cream should be somewhere around 1K ! It is wise to purchase their sets - either like the one I got or 3 hand creams as a kit and you get this satisfaction of trying 3 different products for the price you paid :P

      I use the hand creams only for my hands and fingers :)

  5. Very tempting....i want to try out this variant coz almost all my hand creams have a floral fragrance. Not a single one is citrusy.

    1. Then this would be good change for you Dollie :)
