Crabtree & Evelyn Botanical Hand Treats Hand Therapy Sampler

Crabtree & Evelyn Botanical Hand Treats Hand Therapy Sampler
I have been so excited to write this post. When I thought up the idea for a monthly 'Instead of a Beauty Box' post I didn't realise just how excited I would be about finding the perfect purchase for the post, writing about it, it's exciting! Picking the first thing to get instead of a beauty box was more difficult than I expected. It had to be within the £11.95 budget, which was how much my monthly She Said Beauty boxes were, and it had to be something I wanted, not just buying something for the hell of buying it. But when I saw this Crabtree & Evelyn hand trio over on FeelUnique for a blooming bargain price of £7 for the set with free delivery, I just knew I had to get it! 


One of Crabtree & Evelyn's many beautiful gift sets, the set I got is a Botanical Hand Treats Hand Therapy Sampler. It contains three 25g hand lotions, or 'therapy' as Crabtree & Evelyn refer to them. There is the Citron, Honey & Coriander Hand Therapy, the Pomegranate, Argan & Grapeseed Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy and the Avocado, Olive & Basil Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy. I am a huge fan of Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy creams because they literally make my hands soft like no other brand I have ever tried. So I'm thrilled to have this set. And the fact they are sampler sizes means they are perfect for my handbag!

Unfortunately, the set doesn't seem to be on Feel Unique any more! But you can find all of Crabtree & Evelyn hand care products on their website, here! What do you think I should get next month for my next 'Instead of a Beauty Box' buy?

  10. I decided to stop beauty boxes for this very reason!
    I could spend £10 on something that I really want!

  13. I bought my boyfriend's mum the Citron duo for Christmas and she loves it! I also have one of their body lotions, and it's really milky and feels like velvet on the skin!

  16. This is such a lovely idea! They look a whole lot nicer than anything you could get in a beauty box. My mum is a huge fan of Crabtree and Evelyn products so I got her a bunch of them for Christmas. They have so many lovely things and the travel sized products are pretty pretty pretty. xx

  17. I bought La Source recenty but I wish I'd chosen pomegranate, it smells amazing! My mum uses the citron as its quite good for anti-ageing!

  19. An instead of a beauty box post showing a huge haul would be really interesting and popular too I would imagine. £12.95 can buy a lot of makeup with the budget brands producing such good quality products at the moment, not to mention poundlands bargains!
    Great idea for a series Sophia, look forward to reading the next one x

    1. I don't think you could actually get a lot for that price, unless it was all from the £1 line of MUA! I don't buy makeup from Poundland. It's been shown to be fake and sometimes, a decade out of date! Quite dangerous for your skin xo

  20. I love this idea for a post. It is so much better to treat yourself with something that you like every month. x
