In my sample basket - Crabtree & Evelyn

In my sample basket this week is a Crabtree and Evelyn Sample pot containing their new Lily Hand Therapy.
"Hand Therapy’s ultra-moisturising formula contains shea butter, lily of the valley extract, and macadamia nut oil to leave skin hydrated and delicately soft to the touch. Ceramides help keep moisture close to the skin surface, while myrrh extract helps condition nails and cuticles. The Hand Therapy Collection is formulated without parabens, lauryl sulfates, mineral oil or propylene glycol." - CT&E

What I loved

The scent of this hand therapy is heavenly! The scent gives you a very elegant feeling, as if you were a beautiful young lady in a 50's movie. The lotion has quite a thick consistency which is what I look for in a hand cream. It helps keep your nails and cuticles moisturised and that is a deal maker for me! There is also zero stickiness after applying this hand lotion. *We have a winner!*

What I disliked

If I really had to be anal and try to find something to dislike, I guess some ladies could find the scent to be a bit too "perfume-like" but that all depends on personal preference.(I don't mind)
RSP: 250g is R300, 100g is R280, 50g is R140
Whether you're a stay at home mom, a beauty therapist or in a corporate environment, this is a great hand lotion to keep in your purse.

As with all Crabtree & Evelyn products, they tend to be pricier than other brands but the quality that you receive in each product is fantastic. Being on a tight budget, this would definitely be a splurge, but one I would happily make.

You can find the Lily Hand Therapy in Crabtree & Evelyn stores from November 2012. A great gift for that special lady in your life. Wonder over to their website/online store to check out other products that might catch your eye.
