Crabtree & Evelyn Avocado, Olive & Basil Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy Review



Crabtree & Evelyn Avocado, Olive & Basil Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy

Hi girls,

After so long, I am writing. Life has been such a roller coaster during the past few months. I definitely missed writing but daily I checked the posts in office from my mobile. My office doesn’t allow net connectivity for us sadly, only for higher ups. Juggling work and not having a proper roof over your head is such a bummer! Now as things are settling slowly, I am back to writing 🙂

This review is pending so long by me, just because I could not write down the entire list of ingredients, anyhow, I got the entire list of ingredients from Google 🙂

My experience with Crabtree & Evelyn Avocado, Olive & Basil Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy:

Well, this is the ONLY hand cream, I have ever tried and this cream is very moisturizing in a non greasy way. My hands literally drink this in 🙂

Earlier I just used to slather body lotion and the concept of hand creams seemed a bit over rated to me like some fancy smancy thing ladies keep in their purse 😀 but soon I realized the importance of a hand cream and how I need one tube in my life!


Crabtree & Evelyn  Hand Therapy Avocado-Olive-Basil


Centralized air conditioning in my office is harsh to my skin. I felt how much I apply the regular body lotion; my hands still feel dry and not at all smooth. During early morning flights also, I forget to apply lotion and I suffer from stretchy dry skin. Well, in situations like these, this hand cream has always been at my rescue. I carry it everywhere with me. It is such a life saver and the bonus is it is full of natural goodies.

I picked this variant in a hurry and smelled it at home. The fragrance is faint and subtle. It does smell like olives but nothing over the top, just fresh and faint fragrance.

Later I came to know, this variant of Crabtree and Evelyn hand creams is the best selling one!

The cream is white in color and the texture is fluffy, thick and buttery and melts into the skin right away. My hands are thoroughly moisturized and there is no sticky feeling afterwards. I noticed, a very little amount is needed for both my hands till the elbows. It gets absorbed very fast leaving your hand soft and smooth.

Even though my hands are normal type, the skin around my nails is very dry and they always look ugly inspite of not growing nails. This cream soothes the dry areas and keeps it soft for long. The skin around my nails definitely looks healthy and radiant.
