Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Hand Scrub with Pumice

Reward hardworking hands with an herbal treat, courtesy of our Gardeners Hand Scrub with Pumice.  Formulated with aloe, honey, and allantoin, this scrub features two types of ultra-fine pumice to buff away soil, dirt, and other impurities.  Skin is instantly softened and refreshed - the way you feel after wandering through a fragrant English garden.

I have quite an obsession with hand care potions and lotions and am always trying out new creams and scrubs to help out my dry hands.  My favorites are the 60 Second Fix for Hands (scrubs and creams) from Crabtree & Evelyn.  A while back, though, I picked up another of their scrubs - Crabtree & Evelyn Gardeners Hand Scrub with Pumice.  This is a scrub meant extra grubby hands :P

To use, wet hands and massage the scrub into the hands.  Wash off to clean, soft hands.

Unlike a lot of the other Crabtree & Evelyn scrubs, this one is gel-based (not creamy) and is quite soapy too.  It really is the perfect scrub for gardeners (or anyone else who gets their hands dirty/greasy) as the combination of fine pumice particles and soap gets rid of every bit of mud and grime, especially around the nails.  Plus, it has a fresh scent to it that adds to the clean-hands feeling.  The scrub isn't very moisturizing, though not drying either, and I would definitely need to follow up with a hand cream/moisturizer after this scrub.

I don't really use this scrub all that very often - in terms of scrubbing power, I find this quite a mild scrub.  I prefer creamier ones that provide a lot more heavy-duty scrubbing and moisturizing effect, but this would make the best gift ever for my gardening-obsessed parents!

  1. I've been using their hand cream which smells divine and keeps my hands soft and adequately moisturized!
    I might skip this though because I'm not really fond of mild scrubs either!
