I collect Crabtree & Evelyn Anniversary Mugs. I’ve been collecting them since 1986. They come out every year around Thanksgiving, dated for the coming year, in a different design. This one is from 2003, one of my favorites.
I was happy to learn recently that they really appreciate in value over the years! Unfortunately, the C&E store closest to me closed a couple of years ago, so I have to order the mugs online. To get the free shipping, you have to order about $50 or maybe it was even more.
Anyway, C&E was out of stock on a lot of my favorites so I had to try something new. A beauty blogger I follow, Tina at myhighestselfblog.com, recommended Crabtree & Evelyn Citron Honey & Coriander Shower Gel recently. I love any citrus scent so I went for the soap instead (more affordable).
Here’s what C&E says about it:
“For the most revitalising shower imaginable, lather up with our Citron, Honey & Coriander Body Bar. Featuring a blend of eight purifying herb extracts, including rosemary, goldenseal and tea tree, this mild bar also delivers nourishing doses of shea butter, honey and evening primrose oil onto freshly cleansed skin.
- Silky soft skin formula
- Formulated without mineral oil, parabens, phthalates or propylene glycol”
It’s a glycerin soap, and as a result, it has that smooth glycerin feel (some might describe it as “slimy” but in a good way LOL). And it’s very hydrating, a great winter soap for those of us with dry skin. But it washes clean, so it’s a good choice for any type of skin.
I like the scent. It’s not super-lemony scented, but it’s a nice fragrance. It’s big, almost 5 oz./140g. Thankfully, it’s not one of those soaps that melts away to nothing quickly. Instead, it is lasting a long time, and for the money, it should. It cost $10, and is available at Nordstrom.com, Ulta.com, Crabtree-evelyn.com and beauty.com and their retail counterparts as well as gift stores. It’s made in the US.
