Crabtree & Evelyn launches the English Honey and Peach Blossom collection.
When you get a press release that reads as such:
For thousands of years honey, or ‘nectar of the gods’, has been traded like gold, offered to deities and revered the world over for its curative and beautifying properties.
With merits passed down through so many generations, the efficacy of honey is beyond dispute. For a collection designed to intensively restore, condition and transform the look of skin, centuries of knowledge and ancient recommendations count. The Crabtree & Evelyn estheticians chose a natural extract of wild flower honey renowned for its ability to hydrate extremely dry, parched skin. As well as intensely moisturising, honey’s warm, rich scent combined with peach blossom’s velvet tones, brings a luxurious, heavenly touch to soft and supple skin.
You run down to your nearest C&E store to try it out. Or maybe that’s just me, but I did anyway.
The scent is just beyond beautiful – delicate and calming. It reminds me of trips to the woods in Essex with my granddad.
There are 6 gorgeous products for us to slather ourselves in. Hand Therapy, R125 for 25g and R330 for 100g; Body Butter, R650; Body Wash, R420; Body Lotion, R450; Lip Salve, R160; and the best of the bunch, All Purpose Balm, R280 – think of it as a honey and peach scented Eight Hour Cream!
You’ll find the collection at C&E stores and counters now.
