Crabtree & Evelyn Christmas Gift Collection

Crabtree & Evelyn's festive gift collection has just arrived in stores in Singapore. One is literally spoiled for choice with the dazzling array of sumptuous gift sets in vibrant, regal colours. The gift selection runs the gamut from mini traveller kits, delightful vanity cases, festive home fragrances inspired by the Persian and Ottoman empires to yummy food hampers.

Here are some of my picks:

Pomegranate Hand Therapy Sampler (S$30): 3 x 25g

Floral Fragrance Sampler (S$35): Four shower gels in 50ml sizes.

Lavender & Rosewater Sampler (S$35): Includes two Bath & Shower Gels and two Body Lotions in 50ml sizes.

This year also marks the 25th anniversary of Noel, Crabtree & Evelyn's signature festive fragrance. There are also two new exotic, spicy home fragrances in Smoky Amber (crystallized ginger, golden amber, cardamom, mandarin and sandalwood) and Golden Topaz (clementine, cinnamon and clove).

Of the numerous fragrances offered by Crabtree & Evelyn, my personal favourites are Rosewater and the new Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed range.

I recently received the Skin Quenching Body Lotion and Skin Cleansing Bath & Shower Gel to try out. Both are enriched with antioxidant-rich pomegranate, grapeseed and fair trade argan oil from Morocco. The shower gel lathers up easily and cleanses my skin thoroughly without drying it.

The luxurious body lotion, which contains a nourishing blend of pomegrante, argan, sesame, grapeseed and almond oils, absorbs readily and leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated without any greasiness. I love the deliciously fresh fragrance which combines the tart sweetness of pomegranate with a zesty citrus burst of clementine blossom and fresh fig leaf. If you had to choose just one, I would recommend the Skin Quenching Body Lotion for its superior hydrating effect and longer-lasting scent.

Below is the list of ingredients for the body lotion.

And for the shower gel.
