Peaceful afternoons at the summer house, lazy mornings enjoying a hearty breakfast on the decking, it’s what summer is all about! Of course, the summer season is also an excuse to treat yourself to a few dresses, handbags and beauty essentials. Here in the YCB office we’ve been fawning over the beautiful summer range of Lavender skincare from one of our classic go-to brands, Crabtree and Evelyn.
Lavender is the ultimate scent of the summer, and takes us back to our childhood days of running in and out of the local lavender fields. A nostalgic and elegant scent, we can’t get enough of this collection. Here are our top picks!
Hand cream is a handbag essential and we wouldn’t leave the house without it! For silky smooth paws, look no further than Crabtree and Evelyn’s cult hand therapy. This product is a longstanding favourite with many and comes in a range of different scents, although it has to be said that Lavender is our favourite. The moisturising shea butter and lavender oils leave your hands feeling nourished and hydrated without leaving any greasy residue.
The only downside to summer is having to keep on top of your leg shaving routine, it can be hard work right? Crabtree & Evelyn’s body lotion ensures your pins are free from pesky dry skin and looking fabulous. The combination of shea butter, lavender, evening primrose, almond and coconut oils offer the perfect recipe for smooth summer-ready legs.
As well as having our favourite hand lotion handy in our handbags, we also can’t live without one or two of the hand lotion bottles dotted around the house. A kitchen and bathroom essential, this will keep your hands in perfect condition after you’ve washed up the dishes. Ideal for guests too who can also enjoy the gorgeous lavender scent!
Whilst this isn’t part of the Lavender range, we couldn’t help but mention one of the YCB team favourites! The La Source ultra moisturising body cream is perfect for that pre-holiday pampering. Enrich your skin with vital vitamins and a nourishing formula to give you the soft, flake-free skin of dreams, a real must-have for your summertime travels.
