 I'm a sucker for pretty packaging and delish smelling products, and Crabtree & Evelyn never disappoints. Did you know a Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners product is sold every two seconds? For over twenty years Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Collection has built a cult following across the world for their hand treatments and to celebrate this milestone, have introduced two body products into the range: 

In my head I'm that elegant woman strolling through her rose garden laden with blooming lovelies, when in reality I manage a pitiful vegetable and herb garden and loads of lavender bushes as they are super hardy! Whether a gardener or not, Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Collection offers excellent nourishing and moisturising benefits. I got to try out one of the newbies Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Body Wash and then two personal favourites, Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Anti-Ageing Hand Therapy and Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Hand Recovery: 


Key ingredients in Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Collection is cucumber to recharge skin's natural glow, sage for refining and toning skin and rosemary  for its natural disinfectant properties and antioxidants. Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Body Wash lathers up beautifully and is super moisturising, thanks to shea butter, glycerin and Vitamin E with a gentle scent to soothe the senses. Dermatologically tested. 

ZAR450 for 300ml

Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Hand Recovery

A multi tasking product as it exfoliates while moisturising hands, getting rid of dead skin cells to reveal enriched skin thanks to added macadamia nut oil and shea butter. Recommended use 2-3 times a week. I use it specifically when I've finished gardening by popping some on dry hands, massaging together before rinsing off thoroughly. My hands feel soft and moisturised but if I am wanting an added dollop of moisture, I follow with Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Anti-Ageing Hand Therapy.

Besides sage, cucumber and rosemary for nourishing and conditioning properties, white lily has been added for brightening, soya and shea butter for added moisture. Jojoba is rich in antioxidants, Vitamin E and acts like a humectant, meaning it draws water deep into your skin for hydration. This is a rich and lovely TLC treatment for hands.



All Crabtree & Evelyn products are available online here, or from Takealot here and selected Dischem stores.  Durban & Gauteng still offer stand-alone stores but sadly no longer in Cape Town, however I found heaps of Crabtree & Evelyn products in Linen & Glass in Constantia Village.
