Summer fruits: skin saviours for hot days ahead


Crabtree & Evelyn is one of my favourite beauty brands. I love its packaging and its premium quality ingredients. The products feel really luxe but at affordable prices.

I’ve handpicked these two fruit-based products as among my summer essentials to combat dry, flaky skin and keep you looking beach-ready for those balmy days away.


The Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Body Scrub, £17, is a must. This little gem works to smooth and condition – just the thing to prep before a spray tan – or if you simply want smooth, bump-free limbs before going bare.


It contains a nourishing blend of argan, sunflower and grapeseed oils as well as sunflower wax seeds, which gently slough away rough, dry skin, leaving the body soft, supple and hydrated. It’s gentle on the skin and washes off easily.



Follow up with the Avocado, Olive & Basil Skin Nourishing Body Butter, £22. It keeps skin soft and calms any red patches – especially after sun exposure – with its richly emollient avocado and olive.  The ultra-moisturising formula also contains rich shea butter and glycerine, plus conditioning basil extracts.


I’ve been slathering this on  – particularly on the backs of my arms and legs. The velvety texture sinks straight in and leaves a subtle gloss on the skin, which looks healthy and glowing.
