Crabtree's Avocado, Olive and Basil Range {Review}

I know I always say this but I cannot tell you enough, if you have ever been into a Crabtree and Evelyn store, you would know that it is difficult not to find something you love! I call my favourites, "Gems". Beautiful products that leave me, and my skin, in awe. 

My newest Gem from Crabtree and Evelyn is their Avocado, Olive and Basil range. I got given small sizes of the Bath and Shower Gel and the Body Lotion, from this range, at the Hyde Park launch last year. After taking the first sniff, I immediately felt a rush of nostalgia. 

When I was younger, my mom used to have a descent sized herb garden with tons of different herbs. Whenever you were near, you would get pleasantly overwhelmed by the scent of fresh herbs. The most noticeable scent, for me, in the Avo range, is the basil, as if it were picked right from my mommy's garden! I find the Avocado, Olive and Basil range suites the mature ladies and ladies that love gardening. 

Bath and Shower Gel - I don’t particularly like my whole body smelling like herbs and I am still young and don’t wear floral 'granny' dresses, so I used this shower gel as a bubble bath. You still get to enjoy the scent but it won’t stay with you the whole day. The natural ingredients left my skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. 

Body Lotion - I love how the consistency of the lotion is thick but one you apply it and it absorbs into the skin, it doesn’t fell heavy at all. There is a thin shiny film left on the surface of your skin but I prefer it as it locks in the moisture making your skin really soft and nourished.

I adore these two products and dread the day that they come tho their end.

You can follow Crabtree and Evelyn on Twitter. Do the same for me here.
