crabtree & evelyn hand therapy: review

A few weeks back I showed you guys the hand creams I bought from Crabtree & Evelyn. In today's post I shall be reviewing them. I figured I would review them all together as the formulation and ingredients list seems quite similar, the only difference I noticed is the scent.

The Claims
Our award winning natural hand cream will protect and moisturise hands from the elements to leave them silky soft and lightly scented with your favourite fragrance.

The Reality
The Crabtree & Evelyn hand creams are a lovely consistency, not to thick and not to runny. They absorb into the skin well without leaving your hands greasy. They feel rich and luxurious to use. 

The hand cream keep my hands moisturised and feeling soft, although I do have to apply it a few times during the day. 

I like that the creams are free of parabens, lauryl sulfates, mineral oil, and propylene glycol.

My favourite scent is the Nantucket Briar its a mixture of a floral and powdery scent. The La Source Hand Therapy smells of ocean salts but not in a good way, this was my least favourite scent. The Lavendar Hand Therapy smells of lavendar. The Citron, Honey & Coriander Hand Therapy smells of lemon and coriander. 

The Packaging
The hand creams come packaged in lovely boxes, which is nice if you want to give one as a gift. The actual cream comes in a slim and sleek squeezy tube although the tube gets very disfigured once you start using the product. The cap may look nice but I can be a bit of a clutz and I know I am going to end up losing it, so I would rather it was attached to the tube. Also it can be a little difficult to screw back on. 
The Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?

The Overall Score: 4/5

Have you tried any of the hand creams from the Crabtree & Evelyn Range? What are your thoughts?
