Crabtree & Evelyn Verbena and Lavender de Provence Bath and Shower Gel

Crabtree & Evelyn have recently released their new Verbena and Lavender de Provence Bath and Shower Gel* ($20 CAD/250mL). I believe that this was the first time trying out Crabtree & Evelyn, and I'm already hooked on the line!

This Verbena and Lavender scent is beautiful! I'm not traditionally a huge fan of lavender, but I have to say that mixed with the verbena notes it's a really nice fragrance. This shower gel has a heavy citrus base to it, which I really like. The lemon verbena notes are quite prominent, and it mixes very nicely with the lavender notes. This would be a great shower gel to use in the mornings to really waken you up, since the scent is so invigorating. In addition to using this product as a shower gel, it can also be used as a bubble bath.

As a shower gel, this formula is on the thinner side, but it still does create a ton of bubbles. I like to pour a bit of this onto a loofah, for even more of a lather. This lovely scent fills up my whole shower & bathroom, and the scent does linger lightly on my skin for a few hours. This formula is fairly hydrating, but I still do like to use a body lotion after each shower, no matter what shower gel or soap that I'm using. This product comes packaged in a plastic container with a stopper so that you don't pour out too much. The packaging actually looks quite nice and fancy, I love the design on the label!

I think that this shower gel would make an excellent gift for the upcoming holidays, or as a part of a care package any time of year! Crabtree & Evelyn also have a body lotion, soap, hand lotion, and a fragrance in this Verbena and Lavender de Provence scent. Have you tried this new scent yet? What is your favourite scent from Crabtree & Evelyn? :)

  1. Verbena is amazing and so citrusy - I can imagine it would work really well with lavender for a refreshing scent. Will have to go and have a sniff of this one :o). Xx
