Review: Crabtree & Evelyn’s Skin Conditioning Body Wash and Body Lotion

Guest post by Morgan Siler:

I have a new morning routine:

I get up before either my son or my man stirs and walk out into the den with Yoga mat, sports bra and ipod in hand.

I do 20 minutes of Sun Salutations and concentrate only on my breath and the feeling that I am truly a goddess or a rock star…or both.

I put off mentally listing the day’s “To-Do’s” until I am in the shower and can think with clarity as I sud up.

I owe this refreshing new sense of mental clarity in part to yoga and in part to Crabtree & Evelyn’s line of Aromatherapy Distillations.

Since aromatheraphy is known to enhance well-being, I knew it would be a great thing to incorporate into my daily routine.

I’ve been using their Skin Conditioning Body Wash and Body Lotion for a couple of weeks now and love knowing I’m nourishing my body with 100% pure essential oils. It also makes me quite happy to know there are no parabens, synthetic fragrance, colorants or sulfates. If you are normally a “fruity” body wash or body lotion gal, this scent may not be what you would normally pick out, but give it a chance…

The scent they have created is revitalizing without being over-bearing. It is an essential oil blend of lemon and coriander with spearmint, ylang ylang, star anise and oakmoss. I love coriander. I’ve never tried it in a beauty product before, but I think I’m going to start looking for it.

I use the lotion twice a day on my legs and they feel super well-moisturized and never greasy, not even when I first put it on. The coconut oil and tiari flower are known to restore suppleness and I can attest to my skin’s texture feeling soft and firm. Both the body wash and lotion are made with high quality ingredients and smell sophisticated and fresh.

I just saw here that Crabree and Evelyn are doing a special introductory offer where you can get both 8.5 oz of body wash and lotion for $25 (normally it would be $37)– a pretty great deal.

Who knows, maybe the revitalizing aromatherapy will inspire you to adopt a whole new wellness routine and you’ll find yourself up before the crows in downward facing dog. If so, know I am somewhere out there with you, doing the same.

    My favorite is Chill Out lotion and body wash by Garden Girl. Same kind of thing – it’s got essential oils instead of a regular “fragrance”. Plus no parabens, sulfates, petroleum or thalates. This scent is mandarin orange and grapefruit. It’s incredibly yummy and relaxing!

    This store has been having lots of sales lately (this summer)- i am wondering if they are going out of business.

    I doubt I’ll be up before the crows in downward facing dog but I’d still like to learn more about aromatherapy. I’ve never tried Crabtree & Evelyn products before- sounds interesting.

    Unfortunately, we have no C&E stores in my neck of the woods!
