Review: Crabtree and Evelyn Aromatherapy Gentle Cream Body wash with Lavender and Rosewood Essential Oil

After a hard day at work, the thing that i look forward to the most, apart from mom's delicious and comforting homecook dinner, it would have to be a nice warm bath to uplift my spirits after the satisfying meal.

At times like this, i would reach out for Crabtree and Evelyn's Gentle Cream Body Wash from the Relaxing line to pamper myself.

The Gentle Cream Body Wash belong to C&E's Aromatherapy range (which consist of 3 lines namely Relaxing, Revitalizing and Purifying, each containing different essential oils for different purposes). It contains Lavender and Rosewood essential oil as well as Tonka and Vanilla.

The Body wash is creamy and it lathers quite easily with the help of a moist bath lily, the foam created is delicate and with the soothing aroma of Lavender and Rosewood (which i detect the Lavender scent more than that of the Rosewood) filling up the bathroom, it sort of make up for the hard day at work.

After the bath, my skin felt soft and conditioned (not the slightly stretchy feel that i experienced from some other body wash i have previously used), it felt as if there is no need for moisturiser application afterwards (which i do cheat when i am that tired).

This Gentle Cream Body wash had my heart, so much that i recommended it to my BBF, Klutz when we stumbled upon it at the last C&E's VIP member sale. I don't know why, but it was on 50% off the original price of S$38.00, both of us grab a tube each (i hope the generous offer is not because they are planning to discontinue the range).

Another thing that i like most about this other than the soothing and relaxing aroma of Lavender and Rosewood essential oil would be the fact that, the Aromatherapy Distillation range is free from parabens, colourants, mineral oil, synthetic fragrances, Sodium Lauryl and Laureth Sulfate (SLS) and Propylene Glycol. Its filled with just natural goodness, indulgence without any potential harm to the human body or environment.

I would love to repurchase the body wash again and again whenever i am done with a tube, but due to the price, it is naturally more of an indulgence for me. You can bet, i will stock up more of it if i managed to catch it on a good offer again.

Love it?

You Bet!

I just hope that they make deluxe size of the body wash which C&E US website does show some of their bestselling items available in deluxe size at a really good price. Pity they don't ship here and shipping fees will be a killer for sure even if they do ship internationally.

Priced at S$38.00 for 200ml or 6.8fl oz, available at all Crabtree and Evelyn Stores in Singapore.

A little tip: I use it as a scrub too, especially for my heels, just add some rough salt to the creamy body wash that will do the trick.
