I have been on a pretty good streak so far with Crabtree and Evelyn products, and my latest tried and tested love is the Crabtree and Evelyn Lavender Body Lotion.  A light creamy lotion with the goodness of moisturizing ingredients like almond oil, coconut oil, and shea butter, this is a fabulous product for anyone with dry skin.  It isn't too oily or greasy, yet miraculously moisturizes my superdry skin instantly - plus it absorbs quite fast, so no waiting around for any greasy residue to disappear!  This would easily be on my list of "ideal body lotions," and the only fault, if I could call it that, would be the fragrance.  This has a strong, herbal/medicinal smell of lavender, and while Crabtree and Evelyn lists a bunch of other notes in the fragrance, I really don't detect anything over the lavender.  Now, I am not a huge fan of lavender - sampled a lavender-based ice cream at Whole Foods once which just sealed it for me - but I amn't terribly put off by this scent.  At least in skincare, I don't mind the smell, but if you aren't too fond of sharper smells, you might want to give this a whiff before buying.

With my skin being at an all-time dry in the winters, I am absolutely loving this light, easy-to-apply yet superbly moisturizing body lotion (btw, the lavender smell doesn't linger around too long) - so do give this a try the next time you are at a store!

    1. Most people go gaga over lavender and I was beginning to think something is wrong with me..good to know you don't like it either :P :D The lotion itself is quite nice, though. BTW..I am on the Rosewater set now - have kept the soap for last :D
