Product Review: Crabtree & Evelyn Somerset Meadow Hand Cream

   A new addition to their set of fragrances, Somerset Meadow was announced by global brand Crabtree & Evelyn about two months ago, but it's scheduled for release in the next few weeks.

   Said to contain notes of bergamot, blackberry, fern and ivy, the fragrance will appear in a parfum gel, shower gel, body lotion and as part of their award winning hand-therapy range.

   Today I'm reviewing their ultra-moisturising hand therapy cream in Somerset Meadow.

   Firstly, I like the appearance of the tube packaging. It reminds me of those original boutique-y cosmetics that really did the job. However, as the tube was quite squashable, the product oozed out straight away when I took the cap off. Not a huge turn off, but it can be a little irritating if it spills on your trousers.

   The product appears quite thick, however, when rubbed into the skin it feels light, if a slight bit oily. It takes a few minutes to sink in - however it's not thick and sticky.

   The scent is gorgeous. It smells like spiced potpourri, with a hint of citrus. I wouldn't say it was refreshing; it's more like a warming, familiar scent. On the other hand, the scent faded quite quickly, so don't rely on this as your only form of fragrance.

   You can buy this product from April 29th 2013, online and in store. I have the 25g version, which, if used everyday, would probably last around a month and a half - but at £5.00 a pop, it's definitely purse-friendly.

£5.00 for 25g
