Crabtree & Evelyn Fruits & Botanicals Hand Therapy Collection

When this prettily packaged hand cream set dropped onto my doorstep, I admired it, thought that the metal tubes were vaguely reminiscent of L'Occitane's iconic hand creams, and then put it to one side.  When I actually cracked it open with my dry, scaly hands (thanks to some particularly stain-y pink hair dye, and some high alcohol content stain remover), I was very, very pleasantly surprised.

There are three little hand creams in the set, in Orange, Avocado and Pomegranate scents - all of which are faintly fruity but not overpoweringly so.  The real win, though, is the texture - the cream is thick, unctuous, and yet very light - almost a lotion rather than a cream - and it delivers an impressive moisturising punch.  It manages to hydrate quickly whilst sinking into the skin within seconds - I can apply this and be typing on my keyboard again within a minute, with no greasy sticky residue at all.

This set is also now discounted in the Crabtree and Evelyn sale.  It's not exactly spendy normally, costing £12 for three handbag friendly creams, but at £8.40 it's a bargain.  There's also a set with a floral theme.
