crabtree + evelyn ultra moisturising hand therapies set

Today I thought I would show you one of the things that Santa got me for Christmas. I mentioned before how I have the driest skin and my hands are never soft, so Santa (my mum) must have listened as I recieved this Crabtree & Evelyn hand cream set.

When I opened it, the first thing that I noticed was the packaging. OMG is it beautiful. It actually came in a matching gift bag too which is just as vintage looking. I am so in love with it and packaging doesn't normally bother me too much. The set consists of 3 X 25g tubes each containing different wintery scents: Snow Blossom, Spiced Vanilla and Frosted Berries.

Snow Blossom
This scent is nice and floral with a slight fruity undertone to it at first, although the fruitiness fades after a few minutes. There is a slight lavender scent to this one, although it is not too strong as I hate lavender but this doesn't offend me.

Spiced Vanilla
This one smells exactly like its name, sorry if that sounds like such a stupid thing to say but it is the best way to describe it. It also has a fruity scent that has a slight after tang of spices. At first it oddly reminds me of skittles too..yum!

Frosted Berries
Out of all of these scents, this is the one that most reminds me of winter. It is the strongest smelling of the 3, with an initial blackcurrant hit and a hint of cranberry after. I think this is my favourite of the three.

These all have a nice, thick formula and are perfect to pop in my handbag. I just have to decide which one to use first. I had never heard of Cranberry & Evelyn before, but after trying these I have been endlessly browsing their website at all of the beautiful bits.
