A pioneer in botanical formulations for over 40 years, Crabtree & Evelyn blends the very best of nature and science, tradition and
innovation, and luxury and comfort to create benefit-rich bath, body,
and home care. This heritage is reflected in its name: Crabtree, from
the crabapple tree, the original species from which all cultivated
apple trees have derived, and Evelyn, from John Evelyn, the 17th century
renaissance Englishman who wrote one of the first important works on
conservation and whose motto, ‘explore everything, keep the best’,
inspires the brand to this day.
perfected the shaving experience with benefit-driven men’s shaving
collections and hand-crafted grooming essentials
The newest fragrance to join Crabtree & Evelyn’s sophisticated men’s line is West Indian Lime. Developed using artisan formulas created with natural raw materials, each carefully selected ingredient – almond oil, vitamin E, glycerine – helps soothe, calm and protect the skin for the prefect shave. What’s more, as used, the West Indian Lime fragrance unfolds to reveal the zesty scent of fresh limes and vetiver, a native ingredient of the British West Indies. Blended with warm spices and a deep, woody base note, this collection is as sophisticated as it is distinctive.
I will admit that I had never heard of Crabtree & Evelyn before. I was intrigued and quite possibly a little desperate because I never know what to get my husband or my dad for Father’s Day! Both the men in my life shave and many men out there do every single day so I thought these might help out some of you who are stumped on what to get dad for Father’s Day. Enough with the tacky ties!
No stock photos here, these are exactly what they looked like when I opened them up. With each item I loved taking a huge whiff out of them because the smell was basically a hint of man smell….in a good way. It was sexy and I could not wait to get my husband to use his new goodies.
WEST INDIAN LIME
Shave Soap in a Bowl 100g ($25.00)
A traditional shave soap in a bowl, formulated with vitamin E to help condition the skin. Add warm water to create a rich, creamy lather.
Husband used one of his old shave brushes to get a good lather with this. I peaked in and watched him using it and he told me that he really liked it.
Shave Cream 100g ($15.00)
This shave cream in a tube contains moisturising agents to prevent dryness, as well as vitamin E, known to help soothe razor burns and irritations.
Do not laugh but I had no idea what the key in the picture was used for. After asking my husband I felt like a complete idiot, it is used to roll the bottom of the tube so that you can use every single bit of what is inside. Very nice if you ask me!
Aftershave Balm 100ml ($32.00)
This alcohol-free West Indian Lime Aftershave Balm contains sweet almond oil and shea butter to help leave skin moisturised and scented with a distinctive spicy fragrance.
Husband smells absolutely delicious wearing this aftershave. He has never really used aftershave before this but now I don’t want him to go without again! Very manly.
After Husband trying out these three shave items I am truly convinced that Crabtree & Evelyn make great products. Husband told me he really liked them and would definitely purchase some in the future. From him that is the best endorsement you could possibly get! They make products for women and I want some for me now! They have a wide variety of quality products to choose from. So if your man has a lucious beard then perhaps some body cleansers would be a better gift for him.
Stumped on gift ideas for Father’s Day? Look no further than Crabtree & Evelyn and pick up some shave products…basically a gift he can use every day and won’t last forever like an ugly tie that won’t disappear. Get Dad a gift he can actually use.
