Crabtree & Evelyn Sale Picks!

The start of the new year brings sales and there are some great bargains to be had. One of my favourite companies and one that I’ve heard a lot about from my family over the years is Crabtree & Evelyn. I’ve been   lucky enough collaborate with Crabtree & Evelyn before and I thought that I would choose a few of my favourite products that you should buy in the January sales.

First up is this White Cardamom body scrub. The whole collection which features a body cream, room spray, diffuser, hand cream, candle and more smell heavenly. The scent is a sweet and delicate mix of iced vanilla, mid winter mimosa and mulled spice cardamom. The body scrub has a wintery blend of sugars and rich oils that gently scrub and polish your skin leaving it looking silky smooth and beautifully prepped ready for the Spring/Summer season to come. It’s a fab product that needs to be sampled to be believed.
IMG_1702I love a great scent especially a perfume or a candle but when I was sent this gorgeous room fragrance from the Noel collection I loved it straight away. It’s festive and wintery with a combination of citrus fruits and mulled spices.  The Noel Collection includes a diffuser and candles as well as the room spray. As it’s a seasonal limited edition, you’ll want to snap any of this collection up before it’s gone.

The La Source Collection is one that I’ve featured on the site before. It’s part of Crabtree & Evelyn main line and it’s a firm favourite for me. They have a few festive sets that feature this gorgeous ultra moisturising hand cream which is a winter essentual so go seek it out before it goes out of stock.
IMG_1704Crabtree and Evelyn have some amazing products and I’m really looking forward to trying out more in the future.

Crabtree & Evelyn – La Source Collection

Crabtree and Evelyn are well known for their hand creams and body lotions so when I had the chance to try their new La Source collection recently I jumped at the chance. With ingredients such as underwater algae, seaweed and mineral salts the collection rejuvenates, conditions and invigorates the skin. The scent of the products are subtle but fresh and using them makes me feel like I’ve just stepped into a luxe Spa.
IMG_0090There are now around 30 products in this range and I’ve sampled just a few of my favourites. The first product I tried out was the hydrating body lotion which is light weight and the combination of vitamin A and Shea butter  along with the glycerin really hydrates the skin. The product absorbs quickly but still leaves the skin feeling nourished which is something that I always look for in lotions.
IMG_0091My hands are often dry and sore so I’m always looking for a good hand cream. The La Source hand therapy is ultra – hydrating and smells just like the rest of the collection, fresh and luxurious. The hand cream is thick but very nourishing and a little goes a long way. It’s really not oily either.

The La Source Hydrating Foot Soak is a product that always seems to be out of stock on line in my experience but if you can get you’re hands on it, you’ll be onto a winner . It’s ultra hydrating as my feet felt very soft and moisturised after just 10 minutes.  A foot soak is great for unwinding and this was down to the combination of the aquatic scent and fizzy formula.

The La source collection is a one I’ll be going back to again and again especially the hand creme. I already have my eye on more products that I want to try out.

January Favourites!

IMG_4582 IMG_4598 At the beginning of the month I had an appointment at my local Aveda where they looked at my hair and scalp and gave me some advice on my hair. They suggested that I started using this balancing shampoo. I’ve been using it ever since and it’s really helped with my scalp, the sensitivity of the skin and the look on my hair. It’s looking fab. I was suggested some other products too so I’m looking forward to going back and buying soon. IMG_4594 I’m not someone that usually wears a very heavy base/foundation so I like to stick to light coverage product.  This BB Skin Detox Fluid  from Clarins is one that I’ve been using for the full month. I only use a small amount, just two to three pumps, it lasts all day and looks amazing. It also as an SPF 25 in too. Mega bonus! I’ll be doing more of a review in the coming weeks so keep an eye out on the site. IMG_4593 I bought this lipstick/lipshine is from the Rosie for Autograph  ( Marks and Spencers)line. I bought it just after Christmas and I fell in love with the name of it initially as it’s called  Love of my life which very apt for the time of year.  When I looked at the colour I fell for it even harder and realised that I just had to buy it and I’ve worn it every day since. It’s lovely layered over the Chanel Rouge Allure Ink in Amoureux and it really lasts. My most favourite thing about it is that the lipstick itself is so moisturising even when you have chapped lips which I have this week due to being ill, it helps lock in that moisture and soften them. IMG_4587I was sent some beautiful hand creams from Crabtree and Evelyn. I love the hand creams as they’re thick and so moisturising. My favourite of the month is this Pear and Pink Magnolia ultra moisturising hand therapy as it has such a pretty yet subtle smell. It’s also been great for my hands and nails which have been in some need of a little TLC. IMG_4601 I bought this Armani scent Si in the January sales and I’m so glad that I did. It really is a beautiful fragrance and it’s one that I’ve been wearing a loth throughout the month too.  It’s perfect for the time of year, subtle yet fruity and it has floral notes to it. It’s one that you have to smell if you see it for sure. IMG_4584 I seem to be allergic to every hand wash ever except this brand Bayliss and Harding. They recently brought out this limited edition fragrance in Pink Prosecco and Cassis  to my local Sainsbury’s and I’ve loved using it the whole month. The bottle itself with the rose gold accents is beautiful too. IMG_4445 I’ve also loved the combination of the leopard print snood that I received for Christmas and this beautiful burgundy jumper from Miss Selfridge. It’s a warming combination thats also very soft and it’s made me feel extra snuggly when under the weather this month too.
