REVIEW | CRABTREE & EVELYN HAND CREAMS



I have mentioned before that I have quite dry skin and during winter it gets even drier, my hands and fingers are even drier these days. After we moved to Hong Kong due to space we are unable to have a dish washer so I have to wash the dishes with my hands the old traditional way. This makes hands even drier as the constant contact with water dries hands out really fast with the mix of dish washer.

Having a good moisturiser with you on hand is very important as getting used ti applying hand cream on a regular basis will slow your hands ageing and wrinkling as well, so its a good habit to adopt. I got this set of Crabtree & Evelyn hand moisturisers from my local Bonjour in Hong Kong for HK$150.  It was on sales from HK$350 which was a bargain during December. You can also buy it from any local Crabtree & Evelyn store in Hong Kong. They are all the travel sizes and can be bought individually and the full sizes as well.

The moisturisers smell amazing and the smell lingers after for quite awhile. It isn't too over powering that it will irritate you but just the right subtle smell. The moisturiser instantly gets absorbed into the skin and there is no oily residue left behind after you have massaged the creams into your hands. I hate when that happens specially because everything you touch after that becomes smudged and greasy. Nothing like that happens with these moisturisers, you can straight away go do something else.  

 
As the name suggest the cream smells of honey and slight hint of peach. My husband also noticed the smell of the hand creams and asked me what that smell was saying it was new and smelled nice. Now that says something. The hand cream is enriched with with honey, peach blossom and macadamia nut oil to moisturise the hands and myrrh to nourish the cuticles.

 Smells of lemons and reminds me of lemonade.  The hand cream is enriched with Shea butter and ceramides 3 and 6 II which helps to reduce dryness and keep hands soft. Myrrh is added to nourish cuticles and hylauronic acid to lock in moisture.

The most prominent smell is lavender. Shea butter, macadamia oil, vitamin C and E help nourish and condition the hands, keeping them from over drying.

A strong smell of orange is very noticeable. With Shea butter, macadamia oil, and extracts of tarocco orange, bitter orange, eucalyptus and sage smoothes and nourishes the hands. 

Obviously smells of pomegranate and is a very subtle smell. Made with a mix  of Shea butter, macadamia nut, pomegranate, grape seed, and argan oils to moisturise and soothe hands. The myrrh helps to condition the cuticles

Smells like a garden of flowers and gives a very summery feeling. Pear and Pink Magnolia leaves hand softer. Shea butter and macadamia oil helps to smooth your hands while the myrrh helps heal the cuticles while nourishing them.

My palms especially felt softer and my usually dry cuticles were softer and less noticeable.I noticed my nails weren't that dry as well. with my contact with this has been really helpful. I love that it helps my nails as well as I do have brittle nails and they tend to peel as well. The hand creams are all travel sizes which makes them easy to carry around and have with you all the time in your handbag. The moisturisers have been very helpful and a good bed side table option during winter.

I highly recommend you give the hand creams from Crabtree & Evelyn a try and they do have the travel size as well as the full sizes so you can try the small one before purchasing a full size moisturiser.

They smell amazing and absorb quickly and are easy to carry on you and help reduce dryness in your hands. What more do you want from a hand cream.

Have you tried any hand moisturisers from Crabtree & Evelyn? What did you think of them?
