REVIEW | CRABTREE & EVELYN GLYSTENING FACE SERUM AND MOISTURISING CREAM



Glowing skin is what we all are after day and day out. We will do and try anything that doesn’t cost a fortune to achieve that glow. My skin was looking very pale dull recently and it was frustrating me immensely, so I was looking for a few products that didn’t cost a fortune to get back my glow. It was by accident that I stumbled upon the English Honey and Peach Blossom face serum and moisturiser by Crabtree & Evelyn. This combination is magical and has worked so well for my skin. This combination hasn’t irritated my sensitive skin an didn’t make my Oily-Combination skin even more oilier which I love. You can buy these products at Bonjour and Crabtree & Evelyn in Hong Kong. They each cost HK$98 as they were on offer at Bonjour but the regular price is HK$115 







The serum is supposed to give hydration and radiance to your complexion. The nourishing yeast extract from the glue agave leaves the skin moisturised and the wild flower honey and peach blossom boosts the skin and restores the skin. It is recommended for normal to oily skin to use the serum instead of your regular moisturiser and for dry skin to use it under your regular moisturiser.

This is a little magic portion, by far one of the best serums I have used so far. The packaging is very nice and is a transparent plastic bottle with a pump. Even though its plastic it doesn’t look cheap at all. It is easy to use and you need one pump which is more than enough for the entire face and neck area. The serum is quickly soaked up into the skin. There is a light honey fragrance but it isn't too over powering. The serum is light in texture and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin, you feel like you aren't wearing anything on your face which I quite like because my skin is oily and I  prefer light textures. 


I have been wearing the serum consecutively for a month and from day one my skin looked much alive and awake. My skin feels so much softer and smoother. I have gotten so many compliments since I started using this serum. My skin is glowing and less dull looking. It looks alive and I can see such a big difference in my skin texture. All I need to do is wear a light base for a foundation. After I applied the foundation I noticed my skin looking amazing I have never felt like this or seen my skin so good in ages. 

The claims this product  states is more than true and my skin looked hydrated but not so that it was oily looking and there as a definite improvement in my complexions radiance.






The cream consists of peach blossom, Shea butter, glycerine and wild flower honey. The moisturiser is supposed to deliver deep facial hydration. The glycerine and hydrates the skin and the Shea butter and peach blossom moisture and condition the skin. There isn't any mineral oil in the moisturiser.

The moisturiser is mainly for dry skin and even though I have oily to combination skin I liked using this in combination with the serum. As its getting colder my skin tends to get drier so I thought it was the perfect time to try this out. The packaging is a nice little tub with a screw type lid that is easy to open and close. The moisturiser is a slightly thick cream with a smooth texture to it. Its neither too heavy or light in consistency. It isn't too heavy on the skin once applied. The moisturiser is quickly absorbed into the skin. There is a  slight honey fragrance just like the serum. After I applied the moisturiser my skin did get a bit oily after a couple of hours but these two products work so well together that I was willing to overlook that fact because my skin was looking radiant and glowing.




These two products work really well together but I would suggest that if you do have oily skin you may want to skin the moisturiser as it does make the skin a bit oily. I would definitely recommend this product for anyone want to bring some life into their complexion and bring a glow. I would definitely repurchase these two products.

Have you ever tried any skincare products from Crabtree & Evelyn and if you have let me know what you thought of them?
