      Lovely to start with but a disappointing shelf life

      I received this bath and shower gel for Christmas a couple of years ago in a gift box that also contained a lavender soap bar. I felt like I had reached a certain age, as Crabtree & Evelyn is a brand I would generally associate with a more mature woman. In addition, the packaging of the product I received was quite 'traditional' looking. I love lavender, though, so was pleased with the gift.

      ~ Look and Smell ~

      My bottle was clear plastic with a white plastic screw cap. It is a very traditional-looking shaped bottle, which to me suggested it was a classic product. You could see the gel in the bottle, which was a pale purple colour. Before writing this review, I did a bit of internet research and noticed that Crabtree & Evelyn now sell the gel in a taller, more modern-looking bottle, in an opaque white plastic bottle. I actually think the updated bottle makes the product look less exclusive than the traditional bottle.

      ~ Price ~

      I do not know the price of my gift, but you can buy the updated product for £15 for 250ml. The price makes it a 'special occasion' product, one to use in the bath when you want to treat yourself, and I would not use this as an everyday shower gel.

      ~ In Use: Initially ~

      The gel itself poured out of the bottle fairly well, although I would describe the gel as being a little bit on the thick side and therefore slow to pour. Having said that, I did not need to use a lot. I would estimate that around a teaspoon full was sufficient to generate a sufficient amount of bubbles and leave the water slightly lavender-scented. The smell was not strong, although did last on my skin for an hour or so after bathing.

      ~ In Use: After a While ~

      As I mentioned before, to me this is an occasional use product, and that is how I used it. I have a range of these types of product, so I select which one I am going to use depending on my mood. I would say that, on average, I have around one bath a week (for the avoidance of doubt, I shower every day!), so bath gel/bubble bath lasts quite some time for me. Unfortunately, this product did not last. After about 2 months, the pale purple gel turned a sort of pale yellow colour, and the lavender smell became weak to non-existent.

      It was as if it had gone off, and it did occur to me that perhaps I should have kept it in a drawer instead of on a shelf in the bathroom.

      ~ Would I Buy It Again ~

      I do not think I would buy this product for £15, but if I saw it on sale, then I would, as it is a nice bath gel with a much less over-powering lavender smell than other lavender products. I think also that the new opaque bottle would help the product to last longer - maybe that is why Crabtree & Evelyn changed the bottle.
