Crabtree & Evelyn's NEW Everyday Nature's Care Collection: A Fragrance For Every Need

There are always three beauty products I have in my handbag at all times; a lip balm, an eyebrow pencil (thanks trich) and a tube of hand cream. I like to think of this trio as my 'everyday beauty essentials' when I'm out and about. Having dermatillomania (a compulsive skin-picking disorder that's like trichotillomania's twin...I attack my cuticles), my hands are often left in a pretty sorry state. I've always been too embarrassed to really go into depth about it and show photos (despite my complete openness about trich!), but think bloody, sore and scabby cuticles and flaky skin and you get the idea. Apologies for putting you off whichever meal you are about to have. With this condition, I always make sure I have a hand cream to...hand in order to try and soothe my skin and nourish the dryness.

Although I've got a plethora of tubes to choose from, my ultimate favourites are Crabtree & Evelyn's Hand Therapy creams. After I managed to pick them up for 50p each in the clearance section of Superdrug a while back, I've been obsessed with them ever since. A dinky hand-bag appropriate size, beautiful texture and a variety of gorgeous scents- what's not to love?! They've just expanded this range of scents with their new Everyday Nature's Care collection- the idea is that each of the six new additions serve a purpose in your day-to-day experiences. It's an interesting idea, and although you're not going to use six different hand creams in a day to pair with each emotion during the day, you can buy a fragrance which you connect with most and roll with it. There is calming Lavender & Espresso, hydrating Rosewater & Pink Peppercorn, energising Citron & Coriander, nourishing Pomegranate & Argan oil, uplifting Pear & Pink Magnolia and soothing Goatmilk & Oat.

I personally love the sound of the Lavender collection (mainly because it's my favourite scent ever, I find it helps so much with relaxation and always associate it with pampering). The Rosewater scent is surprisingly not too overpowering (rose scents can often be 'too much'), and the pink peppercorn gives it a really interesting kick to modernise what can often be an 'old' fragrance. I thought I would love the fruity Pomegranate scent but, although it is quite uplifting, found it a tad too sweet for my liking. The Citron scent, however, is a gorgeously tangy pick-me-up that reminds me of another favourite Crabtree & Evelyn scent (Tarraco Orange). Goatmilk & Oat isn't quite as plain as you may imagine it to be, with a faint soapy scent that is actually really pleasant; the formula with this seems slightly thinner too.

Overall, these fragrances are a wonderful addition to some already-cracking scents that exist within Crabtree & Evelyn's repertoire. I know they have traditionally been associated as an 'older brand', but their scent combo's have livened things up, in my opinion. I'm personally a huge fan just because not only do I love the exciting pairings of ingredients they use, but I find their formulas work really well with my skin; they're not too thick and greasy, but not too thin that they don't do anything to nourish your hands. Hand creams don't necessarily sound like the most exciting things in beauty, but the fact that I really enjoy applying these creams and the scents they bring with them speaks volumes! Although as a treatment, I need something far stronger to heal the dermatillomania damage (if anyone has any recommendations please let me know!), as a day to day top-up of hydration, these tick all the boxes. I think these new fragrances are also available as body lotions, hand washes and shower gels too, but I'm all about the Hand Therapy!

Which of these new scents tickle your fancy? Are you a fan of Crabtree & Evelyn products?
