Crabtree and Evelyn
As a chronic applier, re-applier, and collector of lipglosses, balms, potions, and lotions, I feel it’s essential that I try out the new Crabtree & Evelyn Lip Butters.
Do I need more lip products?
Naaa…sure is damn fun indulging though!
Crabtree & Evelyn filed for bankruptcy on Wednesday making it the latest to succumb to the poor economy.
Read ahead for the details!
The company currently operates 126 stores in 24 states and employs around 950 people. Although they are filing bankruptcy they are not going completely out of business but will be reorganizing the way they do business which will include closing several stores.
Crabtree & Evelyn is a specialty shop and with larger offerings from stores such as Bath and Body Works offering items at a cheap price it must be difficult to keep business up. I’m saddened to hear this news and have hopes with time the company will prosper once again.
The Muse is terribly obsessed with the Crabree & Evenlyn Distillations Collection. I recently reviewed the Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Revitalize Conditioning Body Lotion which was love at first application. Today I’ll be bringing you a review of the Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Soothing Body Lotion and Gentle Cream Body Wash.
Jump ahead for the deets!
The new Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations line up combines the benefits of 100% essential oils and natural ingredients to create a relaxing blend for both your skin and your senses. Each blend contains no parabens, no mineral oil, and absolutely no additives.
Although I’ve already tried out the Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Soothing Body Lotion that version was a revitalizing blend which contained tart lemons to wake this tired Muse up! The blend I’m currently loving is filled with relaxing lavender and rosewood essential oils which makes it the perfect sleepy time body lotion. The lotion absorbs on contact and melts into skin beautifully leaving behind a lovely herbal scent that’s soothing and healing to my dry skin. The scent is relaxing and quite comforting which makes it an ideal lotion to use just before bed. I’ll save my other lotion for early morning wake up calls!
This is my first time trying Crabtree & Evelyn Distillations Gentle Cream Body Wash. This too is scented with lavender and rosewood essential oils which makes it a perfect companion to layer with my body lotion. The formula is a creamy, dreamy moisturizing body wash that cleanses as it moisturizes my dull, dry skin. The lavender does a wonderful job of soothing my skin and locking in moisture and of course, it’s simply relaxing to breath in the scent while I shower!
I’m really enjoying this new collection and think it’s well worth checking out for yourself!

The Muse has a soft spot in her heart for Crabtree & Evelyn goodies so when she got her hands on a new Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations Conditioning Body Lotion she couldn’t help but feel a bit excited!
The new Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations line up combines the benefits of 100% essential oils and natural ingredients to create a relaxing blend for both your skin and your senses. The body lotion I received carries the tart scent of lemons with a heavy twang of coriander for a sensory wake you up scent! I actually wish this was a hand lotion as the scent would be ideal for my hands or even for hair. It’s quite invigorating and fresh smelling. You’ll be happy to know that this contains no parabens, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance and many other additives that most body lotions include in their formulas. The lotion glides on well and absorbs beautifully leaving behind the tart sweetness of lemons with just the right amount of coriander. You might think coriander in a body lotion is a bit strange but it goes very well with the lemons creating a rather nice vibrant blend.
Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations comes in three formulas, Relaxation, Revitalize, and Purify. So far the Revitalize scent is really something I enjoyed trying out…I think I’ll head into the store to try the other blends and see what else is available in the Revitalize range!
Crabtree & Evelyn Aromatherapy Distillations are worth checking out for yourself! So far I’m really enjoying the body lotion! Check out www.crabtree-evelyn.com for further info about this new collection!
