Crabtree Evelyn JoJoba Oil Body Lotion: Review

Crabtree & Evelyn Jojoba Oil Body Lotion (available here) - This sheer moisturising body lotion, blended with first-pressed golden jojoba oil - Simmondsia chinesis - a desert botanical well known for its skin moisturizing properties, and sweet almond oil and oat extract, leaves skin feeling soft and supple.  The formula absorbs easily, is moisturizing and conditioning, and has a fragrance that is a blend of lavender and green herbs with a hint of citrus.

I am a huge fan of Crabtree & Evelyn, and their hand (and foot) creams and scrubs are some of my favorite skincare products.  Buoyed by my generally positive experience so far, I picked up a few products from the Crabtree & Evelyn Jojoba Oil range hoping they would work great for my dry skin.  The Jojoba Oil Body Lotion is a slightly runny lotion with a sharp herbal-soapy smell to it.  The smell isn't too bad I suppose, but it's not something I am fond of - smells just too much like some generic hotel soap, imo.

The Crabtree & Evelyn Jojoba Oil body lotion is incredibly light and fast absorbing, leaves absolutely no trace of greasy residue, yet is quite moisturizing.  This would make a great moisturizer for the summers for any skin type, and if you have normal skin, this would be quite nice even in the winters.  Even with my dry skin type, I find this jojoba oil infused moisturizer quite moisturizing during these cooler months.  This is a lotion, though, and is meant to be light, and if you are looking for some serious hydration for the drier bits like feet and elbows - get a body butter or a cream.

The Crabtree & Evelyn Jojoba Oil Body Lotion might have been the perfect body lotion - light yet moisturizing - but I amn't a huge fan of the fragrance especially considering it's from Crabtree & Evelyn - I just expect their products to smell so much better than this.

Yes, I know...the typos...I am sorry but I will change them soon as I get the time to :P

  5. This lotion actually sounds really lovely--perfect for me! I like something that's really light and milky but is intensely moisturizing (my body gets SO dry during the fall/winter, it's insane!!). The questionable smell would be so worth it to me!

    1. Try it in store then, Becca :D I did read somewhere that they reformulated the lotion, so the smell may have changed..

  6. Oh, going by the tiny logo of the seashell nymphs, I may love this stuff and it's scent. This reminds me of a very old C&E jojoba oil soap set.

  7. If you liked the soap, you just might like this too :) I have the body wash and it smells very similar.
