Hello beautiful People,
Being just another bath and body products fanatic, I love to collect bath and body products, and have managed to build a decent collection. Here is a quick review from a product from one of my favourite brands – Crabtree and Evelyn.
Crabtree and Evelyn is a renowned name in natural skin care products. Their products range from handmade soaps, lotions, perfumes, shower gels and spa products. The USP of the brand is its unique smelling products.
About Wisteria bath and shower Gel:
This was the first product I purchased from Crabtree and Evelyn and have been in love with the brand ever since.The Wisteria bath and shower gel is a light, clear white gel with a very rich and fresh floral fragrance. I would describe the fragrance as sensuous but not heady. The gel bursts with fragrance of wisteria with a hint of jasmine. The fragrance is very fresh and invigorating and is even more intensified when used with warm water.
The shower gel lathers well and a small amount is enough for a bath. It contains moisturizing glycerin which leaves the skin feeling very smooth and soft. I love to use it in winter when my skin is extra dry. The shower gel comes in a beautiful plastic bottle with a press cap. The bottle is travel friendly. I always carry the 50 ml in my handbag and there has not yet been any spills or leaks. Like most shower gels the smell lasts only for maybe an hour, but the bath experience is truly wonderful. The deal clincher is that it is formulated without mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol or sodium lauryl sulfate.
Rs.395 for 50ml
About Wisteria Body Lotion:
The body lotion shares its fragrance with the bath and shower gel. It has the same rich and fresh floral smell of wisteria with hints of jasmine. The lotion is very light and non sticky and spreads very easily. A small quantity is enough to moisturize the skin.
It contains shea butter, evening primrose, almond and coconut oils which nourishes the skin.
The body lotion is moderately moisturizing and hence does not work too well for extra dry winter skin. I like to top it up over my regular moisturizer for the fragrance. The fragrance lingers for 2-3 hours and slightly longer when used after a shower with the wisteria bath and body gel. It does not contain parabens, mineral oils, phthaletes, or propylene glycol and that scores a few brownie points. The 50 ml comes in a handy and convenient tube and the 250 ml in a plastic bottle with a pump nozzle and lock. The bottles are extremely travel friendly.
Rs.395 for 50ml
Pros of Crabtree and Evelyn Wisteria Shower Gel and Body Lotion
Cons of Crabtree and Evelyn Wisteria Shower Gel and Body Lotion
• Does not do anything for the skin (lotion)
Overall, Wisteria body lotion and shower gel are fragrance oriented products and do not do any wonders for your skin. I would recommend it to ladies who like lovely smelling products.
The prices are a tad expensive, but the experience is worth it! Psst… they do have some amazing sales and offers in the sale season, so do look out for those. Or ask your USA returning friend or cousin to pick a few bottles for you!
