Crabtree & Evelyn 60 Second Fix For Hands (Gardeners)

It's pretty much become a running joke in our family that every year I end up buying my mum hand cream as one of her Christmas presents! To add to the fun poking it's also always the same one! But every year without fail it's 1 of the only things my mum asks for so I figured if you're onto a good thing why change it! I should probably mentioned at this point how incredibly difficult my mum is to buy for (think Rachel from Friends). Finally I thought I had see what all the fuss was about & gave the hand care duo a test run. The outcome? I totally get it & the full size set is now on my annual Christmas list too! This combination of hand exfoliant followed by a nourishing cream continually leaves my hands feeling the softest they've ever felt!

The set comes with 2 bottles; a Hand Recovery & a Hand Therapy. The Hand Recovery is a very gritty exfoliant to be rubbed into dry hands for about a minute (this involves some serious scrubbing). You then rinse it off under warm water & pat dry. You're hands will instantly feel indescribably smooth & soft. 

The second product is the Hand Therapy (aka hand cream). As I repeatedly mention on here I hate any moisturisers, face cream or general products that just sit on my skin for ages & don't sink in or those that leave it feeling in any way greasy. The surprising result of this cream is that although it appears really thick it sinks into your hands so quickly making them feel even more nourished & luxurious than the scrub did! 
I can't recommend this hand care set enough especially while we're having to endure the raging elements of the winter months which wreak havoc on our skin. This is the perfect gift for your mum, sister, auntie, friend or just anyone who doesn't have the luxury of having soft supple hands all year round!
The set is available in either this mini size (see above) for £8 or full size for £24. It also comes in a few various scents but my personal favourite is 'Gardeners' (seen in this post) purely because it reminds me of my mum :)


  1. Looks good :) Hope she lieks it :)
