If you’ve tried some of the other products in Crabtree & Evelyn’s Hand Therapy range, you’ll understand why I’m excited about their newest addition – Lily. The Hand Therapy products are some of the nicest hand creams available on the market. In fact, the Avocado, Olive & Basic one recently won the Allure US Best of Beauty Award for Best Hand Cream (yes, it smells even better than it sounds).
One of the reasons I’m so pro-C&E is that the products are not just formulated well, but they use some of the best ingredients. Walking around the C&E shop (and tearoom) at the Design Quarter in Fourways is such a treat. Everything smells amazing!
A friend of mine once commented that they found C&E a bit “old fashioned” but with the branding relaunch and the new look and feel of C&E, I truly think this brand is for all ages. It has this timely, classic, vintage kind of feel and the latest additions to the range have made me think that they are really on track as a brand with its roots in naturals and a long history.
Lily Hand Therapy contains shea butter, lily of the valley extract and macadamia nut oil which leaves the skin feeling soft and moisturised. It also contains ceramides to keep moisture close to the skin’s surface and myrrh extract to help condition nails and cuticles. If you’re a bit of a greenie, the collection is formulated without parabens, lauryl sulphates, mineral oil or propylene glycol. It launches at the end of October so pop into your nearest store then.
The Hand Therapy costs R140 for 50g, R280 for 100g, and R300 for the 250g. Also, keep an eye on the brand’s Facebook page and Twitter account, @Crabtree_SA. They often have last minute specials and you’ll be bleak if you miss out.
