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.
- Amazing rose scent
- Moisturizing without being too heavy
- Pretty packaging
- 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

I bought this hand cream a while ago because my boyfriend’s sis has been using this hand cream and this hand cream only ever since I know her. (Which is a long time!) So what the hell, it must be good right?
So far, I really like this because it makes my hands feel very very smooth and it is moisturizing enough for daily use. I have to handle paper a lot at work so that is pretty good. What I also like about this product is the fact my hands absorbs the cream very quickly. Even if I had to wash my hand 5 minutes after I put this cream on, it wouldn’t my hands feel slippery and gross.
If you like a light-weight hand cream that is pretty moisturizing, this is a hand cream you’re looking for.
Oh, I forgot to mention it smell soooo good! (That is if you like rose smell though…)
