Crabtree and Evelyn Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage Hand Therapy cream

Categories:Hands, Review, Skincare

Crabtree Evelyn Tarocco Orange Hand creamI recently took advantage of the Crabtree and Evelyn promotion that was running in my local Inverness store and exchanged my almost empty Bodyshop hand-cream for the FREE shiny new travel-size Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage Hand Therapy cream  25g worth £5.00. They actually had two options to choose from on this particular promotion with another being Rosewater hand therapy cream in the same travel size. Personally I’m not a big fun of the heavy flowery smells so the Tarocco Orange option was a no-brainer for me.

  • The smell: very fresh, citrussy with slightly overpowering notes of sage which I’m not particularly keen on anyway.
  • Texture: very nice, rich, not too sticky, absorbs very quickly without a sticky residue or silicony feeling afterwards. Super hydrating, my hands now feel lovely and soft.
  • Packaging: very pretty, bright orange in colour, has a nice expensive feel about it, metallic finish,  unusual shape twisty top.

For something that I technically got for free I’m very impressed with all aspects of this hand-cream. However, the retail price of £5 for a travel size 25g is not something I would willingly part with in the future! The full size version (100g) comes at £15, and would make a lovely gift for Mother’s Day or Christmas Stocking filler for sure.
