Three different Crabtree & Evelyn hand creams on the dressing table
& Evelyn is a British icon. Ever so popular in London, where the writer was introduced to La Source hand therapy in this city initially. A fairly milky cream, with a tube that tends to break and ooze out extra hand cream when used frequently. Time to explore other Crabtree & Evelyn products. This beauty retailer also sells diffusers and Lavender Mints.
With the launch of some stunning hand cream scents, it was a good idea to try smaller tubes. Like with my La Source and Lavender hand cream experiences, the tubes were a little large for my liking.

Thank goodness for smaller, travel sized hand creams. The tubes do split, however not as much as the larger tubes do. Sure their larger hand creams are more economical in price, quite frankly they can be more trouble than they're worth. Small is best. Size does matter.
Their Pomegranate, Rosewater and Himalayan Blue hand creams are worth it when going travel size. The best out of these three would be the sweet pomegranate. Enjoy the subtle fruity tastes of this berry on your hands. You only need a pea size amount, and at best it is ideal to use this product three times a day for silky, smooth hands. Use more than a pea sized amount and your hands will feel heavy, buttery and overly scented.

The designs are elegant. The rosewater scent is a little strong, and the Himalayan blue hand cream reminds one of the sea.
If these hand cream scents aren't your cup of tea, its all good. Crabtree & Evelyn are bringing out new hand cream scents in travel size. It will be great to see the lavender come out in a travel size tube sometime soon.

If you don't have any preference as to which type of hand cream flavour you would like to use, go for the pomegranate or the lavender. Different packs are available. Price wise, as a guide around $30 buys you 100mls. Highly recommended. Just watch out for the tubes splitting. Apply a small amount of pressure to the bottom of each tube when using this product. That works most of the time, as opposed to applying pressure near the lid.
