Crabtree and Evelyn Collaborate With Cleo Ferin Mercury To Celebrate The 20th Anniversary Of Their Gardener's Range*.

Wednesday, 28 June 2017

Crabtree and Evelyn are synonymous with creating beautiful products using natural and British found ingredients. Founded 40 years ago by Cyrus Harvey, they first started out by selling soaps from around the world and are known by their symbol of the British Crab Apple Tree; the ancestor to all the British apple trees of today. This iconic tree is prized for its use in home apothecary, making it the perfect symbol for a brand which represents beauty and natural goodness. Their Gardeners Range was originally created to appeal to a horticulturist's wealth of knowledge about the healing power of herbs, using natural ingredients all blended together to help create an iconic signature for this most British of brands over the last three decades. 

For this most special of anniversaries, Crabtree and Evelyn wanted to create some special additions to an even more luxury to the daily ritual of washing your hands after working in the garden. Welcome to the family, Gardeners Exfoliating Soap, Gardeners Intensive All Purpose Balm and Gardeners Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy.

Gardeners Exfoliating Soap - " A parcel of garden goodness awaits you upon unwrapping this gentle buffing bar, enriched with conditioning herbal extracts. Formulated with ultra fine pumice, this soap bar cleans and gently exfoliates over-worked hands while the herbal extracts leave hands infused with vibrant horticultural notes of fresh rosemary, sage and thyme. Skin is left soothed and moisturised." 

Fragranced with Fresh Green Clover, Lavender, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme 

This honestly smells so good through the packet and I just know that my Granny who still loves to get out in her garden will love it. 

Gardeners Intensive All-Purpose Balm - " A rich formula of beeswax and Shea butter for chapped and dehydrated skin. Soothe outdoor roughened or weathered skin with this botanical-infused balm. Fresh from the garden, herbaceous and botanical notes of clover leaf , eucalyptus and rosemary lift the senses, while Shea-butter and beeswax moisturise. Apply the balm on rough or dry skin and massage in. FRAGRANCE Fresh Green Clover, Lavender, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme "

I have been using this for a little while and I can honestly tell you it not only smells incredible but also works amazing well at keeping my lips all hydrated and soothed. I am a bit of a lip balm addict and am always on the lookout for the next best thing to help my lips. I exfoliate using the Body Shop's lip exfoliater and afterwards I apply a small amount of this and it stays on my lips for ages and are left feeling so soft and smooth. Upon opening this little tub the wonderful herbaceous and botanical notes of clover leaf, eucalyptus and rosemary instantly hit my nose and help to transport me to another time and place where I don't have to worry about the stresses and strains of everyday life. Love it!

Gardeners Ultra-Intensive Hand Therapy - "After a long day of handling thorny situations, our Gardeners Hand Therapy is just the help you need. Containing a blend of nutrient-rich shea butter, moisturising glyercin, deodorising clover and soothing bisabolol from camomile our hand therapy will help nourish and condition work-roughened hands."

Fragrance: Fresh green clover, lavender, sage, rosemary and thyme.

What I love most about these three products is how they are all linked together by clever use of the same herbs. Your hands/lips will be left smelling beautiful. This hand cream smells incredible and will no doubt leave my Granny's hand soft and nourished after working hard in the garden.

I had never before used any products from Crabtree and Evelyn and I actually didn't know much about them either but after learning more about the brand themselves and how they utilise herbs and botantics from the garden into their products. The fact that it is a purely British company is even better. 

The design of the packaging on the soap is quirky and fun, with drawings of gardening related items such as watering cans, wheelbarrows, trowels and forks. Cleo Ferin Mercury has done really well and I absolutely adore this whole range. I definitely recommened checking out the rest of this range on the website and picking yourself (or someone who loves gardening) something. 

Which product from this range do you like the sound of? Do you have green-fingers? Let me know in the comments below! 

Love, Sarah
