Did you know Crabtree & Evelyn have extended their wildly popular Hand Therapy line to include a night-time version? Say hello to Overnight Hand Therapy (R450)!
I’ve been out of touch with this brand for ages aside from a quick pop-in to view their Christmas collection so I don’t actually know when this was launched but I assume it was some time late last year.
An ultra hydrating mix of antioxidant vitamins and amino acids that include arginine (this helps your skin retain more moisture), it’s to be used before bed to give your hands a beauty treatment but there’s nothing stopping you from using it any old time as it doesn’t feel heavy or ‘too rich’. If anything, it’s ever so slightly oily-feeling when its first applied but it absorbs fast and doesn’t ball up on your skin.
I kind of expected this particular variant to be too fruity and sweet but it’s a very sophisticated, grown-up pomegranate with a woody, possibly even slightly smokey dry down that makes me think of a luxe, Jo Malone-esque cologne. If you’ve got any Hand Therapy fans (isn’t every one?!) in your life I reckon this would make for a lovely gift.
