I picked up a few samples of Crabtree & Evelyn's Tarocco Orange body lotion at the garden centre recently. This is a new range by C&E and this lotion is a blend of energising citrus, green herbal fragrance and moisturising glycerine, this lotion is infused with Tarocco blood orange, bitter orange, eucalyptus and sage extracts. This lotion retails at £16 for 250ml.
The lotion is light in consistency and glides easily over the skin. The lotion refreshes and lightly moisturises the skin. The fragrance of the lotion is instantly noticeable, it is a warm musky scent. The orange and sage is detectable after application - it is not overpowering or artificial and I think it is suitable for female and males to use.
After application my skin does feel and look moisturised, the lotion is rapidly absorbed without any greasy or sticky residue. I can dress almost instantly after using this. The scent does remain on the skin for a few hours, and my skin does feel soft. This is simply a daily moisturiser, it is not an intensive cream or designed for very dry skins. So I would not recommend this if you need extra moisture.
Overall, this is a pleasant smelling lotion which adds light hydration to the skin. I am not sure that I would purchase this as I feel it is a little expensive and is not as moisturising to my skin as I anticipated.
