Lavender is on of my favourite smells, especially at this time of year when it is in full bloom. Needless to say that I also love this Lavender gift set from Crabtree & Evelyn which contains three must-have products. First of all, I’ve fallen for the gorgeous illustrations that Crabtree & Evelyn use for all their packaging – so divine.
The Bath & Shower Gel is a real treat. It cleans and refreshes as well as scenting skin with its uplifting Lavender fragrance, which is blended with violet, tonic bean, lemon leaf and soft musk. Extracts of lavender, peony, white magnolia, and elderflower help condition the skin. It gently foams up and feels wonderfully rich and luxurious.
After your shower and bath (in which it gives lots of bubbles), slather on the matching body lotion for finely scented limbs. It leaves the body soft and supple and sinks quickly into the skin. Shea butter, lavender, evening primrose, almond, and coconut oils give deep moisturisation, while extracts of peony, white magnolia, and elderflower help condition the skin.
Crabtree & Evelyn’s Hand Therapy is one of the best hand creams around. This version combines shea butter hand cream with lavender oil and leaves hands feeling incredibly smooth and soft. It absorbs deep into the skin and leaves no greasy residue, Fantastic for keeping hands in tip-top condition. Lavender is a great aid for sleep so I’ve been using these products at the end of the day to get a restful night’s sleep. It’s an ideal gift for a loved one, or why not simply indulge yourself for a change. After all, you’re worth it!
