Crabtree & evelyn La source review*


When Crabtree & Evelyn reached out to me about their newest collection for 2017, I was both excited and thrilled!
La Source is a new line of products that are available both online and in stores; With a variety of skincare and hair-care to choose from.
La Source has been inspired by the sea and the properties from it, providing marine goodness for the skin, hair and body and gives you an overall spa like feel in your own home.
Within the range there are four Marine Blends, each containing their new hero ingredient Green Seaweed Extract combined with a specific Marine-Based ingredient to boost skin benefits.

There four new marine blends and properties are -
Refreshing Marine Blend- Green Seaweed + Brown Algae Extract Actions: Cleansing, purifying and moisturising
 Hydra Marine Blend- Green Seaweed + Blue Sea Lavender Extract Actions: Nourishing and purifying
 Restorative Marine Blend- Green Seaweed + Red Sea Algae Extract Actions: Protective
 Rejuvenating Marine Blend- Green Seaweed + Sea Fennel Extract Actions: Rejuvenating

Here are my thoughts after trying out some of the collection-
Crabtree & Evelyn Refreshing Body Wash - 250ml - £15

My first thoughts were how beautiful this packaging actually is! For a body wash, it arrives in a sleek but yet matte like finish box, in their sea blue shade. The printing is flawless and readable and I noticed this on the bottle itself too. I love how they capture the seashell in with the collection, almost like a 'signature' and it gave me fond memories of the seaside with added luxury.
For 250ml, you receive a substantial amount of product that can be poured into travel sized containers, if you were to take it on your break away; Rather than taking the entire bottle!
The product consistency, is an aqua colour, clear like gel formula, which a little goes a long way. I'm more of a shower user so I found this ideal especially when I need that energetic, refreshing pick me up before and after work.
I found the product's scent to be fresh and uplifting, it really awakens the senses; I didn't find the scent to be too long wearing after use, but enough to feel deeply cleansed, which still restored moisture to the skin. Overall I just adore how luxurious this product makes me feel, I find that this range would be great for both male and females because the scent is captivating.

Crabtree & Evelyn Hydrating Body Lotion - 250ml - £17
To follow in the range, the body lotion has to be one of my key favourites! Capturing their unique marine scent this product comes in a sleek pump bottle in a soft blue tone; I only had to use two pumps to dispense the lotion into my palm but this can vary due to the area of application. Currently I've had dry patches especially on my legs, so I targeted these areas.
The lotion feels lightweight, non greasy and absorbed quickly into my skin, adding plenty of moisture. I suffer with sensitivity from a lot of products, but I had no irritation from using this in the slightest. It contains rich green seaweed extract and nourishing blue sea kale, the combination worked miracles on my skin and the fragrance is beautiful; It reminds me of Davidoff Cool Water actually!
I've used the lotion after showering and find that it provides extra nourishment, and my body feels so much more relaxed and pampered.


Crabtree & Evelyn Overnight Hand Therapy - 75g - £19
Lastly the overnight hand therapy; I was very excited to try this when I saw it. The packaging of this item is in a long sleek box, in a deep navy shade, with the seashell icon at the top standing out in white. The tube is also in the same colour and I prefer the fact that it's quite narrow, so that it's easier to hold when applying. Because we're coming out of the winter season, my hands have appeared drier and I will admit I don't rarely use a handcream. So this was very new to me and came simple to use just before sleeping. I used a small amount and massaged it into my hands, ensuring I also got my nails and cuticles and felt it do its magic! The cream is light, and didn't feel at all heavy or sticky, it blended in well and I felt a miraculous difference when I woke up. Deeply conditioned thanks to the rejuvenating marine blend and a concentrated complex composed of amino acids, vitamins and arginine.
This is an item I would recommend to those who have suffered with dryness and needs a richer formulation to show vast results; It's ideal to use it nightly or as a special treatment when needed.
