“ Brand: Crabtree & Evelyn / Type: Body Lotion / What it does: Smoothes, Restores, destresses, Nourishes / Contents/Size: 5500ml „
I got a few bottles of this Crabtree and evelyn La Source body lotion (each contains 25 ml) as Subscription gifts for subscribing to a magazine. The La Source range is inspired by the British coastline and helps to restore the skin suppleness and vitality.
As said above, the ones I am using are the trial version. It is contained in a clear plastic bottle with the name printed in light blue color. I like this light blue color and I think it fleets the range image quite well. The light blue color will easily lead you to think of the beautiful and calm sea which gives you a relaxing feel.
The lotion itself is not a very creamy type and can be applied on skin easily. It is also absorbed into the skin quickly upon application. While it claims to help to restore the skin suppleness and vitality, I do not find the result to be very obvious. In fact, I found that the moisturizing effect a bit disappointing. In those dry winter days, my skis stills feels a bit dry after using the lotion. I think that this lotion is ore suitable for summer use.
The smell of the lotion is very nice and of a summer feel. It is clean, crisp and of a fresh sea air feel. It kind of resembles the nice summer sea air that you can smell at the sea coast during summer time. I think that it is a Rey fresh scent which will freshen one up in the morning. Besides, while it is not a very strong smell, it does last for a few hours.
If you are looking for a fresh body lotion to be used during summer time, the La source lotion is definitely a good choice.
