Crabtree & Evelyn Distillations Body Lotion

Have you tried Crabtree & Evelyn lately?? First I loved the new India Hicks Island Night candle, and now just tried their new Distillations line of body lotion.

I used to be a huge fan of C&E, (Their body powders are a staple here)but the nearest store is quite far so only occasionally get to try new stuff.

I am very happy to be rediscovering them and maybe you will be too.

Distillations is the name for a new aromatherapy line within the brand. There are several scents. I have Refreshing -which is with Eucaplytus and Lime essential oils. It also has Cucumber and Lemongrass, Grapefruit and Rosemary.

Citrus & mint are at the front here with the Rosemary second. But it's also not just citrus. It's a very cool, but zingy scent that uplifts and relaxes at the same time. It's really nice. The herbs temper the citrus and the Eucalytus vapors open up your sinuses a bit.

The lotion itself is very moisturizing , but not enough for the super cold north winds of winter. Right now it's great. It's also good as a day lotion when you want some scent. The scent does linger for about a half hour. It's creamy but absorbs very fast and comes in a nice pump bottle.

Other "scents" are Revitalize(lemon, coriander, spearmint, ylang ylang and star anise) and Relax( lavender, rosewood, argan oil)

8.5 oz Body Lotion $ 19.50
The line also has body wash, body butter , candle, scrub and sets.
Oh, and no parabens , laureth sulfates, mineral oil.
