I received this body cream as early Christmas gift from my mother-in-law. I am a big fan of this brand’s Rosewater hand cream. I’ve repurchased it so many times. Yet I’ve never tried their body cream, so I was pretty happy when I received it. I’ve seen their body cream in store before and I recall it was in a round shaped plastic jar, but I was¬†pleasantly¬†surprised when I opened the box and found this nice glass jar. I mean glass jars are heavy, easy to break, and difficult to carry around. But I usually don’t take the whole jar with me when I travel so it doesn’t matter. I like how it feels high quality and I think glass jars are more sanitary for some reason.

I used it for about 1 week now and I really like this body cream. First of all, I love rose scented products and Crabtree & Evelyn makes most amazing rose scented body care products in my opinion. So if you’re like me, it’s worth a try to check them out in store. (but even if you don’t like rose, they carry a variety of other scents!) The texture of the body cream is rich and thick, but it’s not sticky when massaged onto skin. My skin is nice and moisturized without feeling¬†greasy. However, it is not the most moisturizing body cream so if you have very dry skin, this may not be the best body cream for you. For me, I like how light it feels after it’s absorbed and cloth won’t stick to my skin.

Pros:

  • Amazing rose scent
  • Moisturizing without being too heavy
  • Pretty packaging

Cons:

  • May not be easily avalable
  • Not suitable for extremely dry skin/weather
  • Expensive for body cream (CA$36 for 200g)

My Final Rating: 4/5
