6 Products We LOVE From the Wanderlust-Inspired Beauty Brand Crabtree & Evelyn

These days, I'm positively swimming in skincare and bath goodies, and with companies reaching out to me daily for potential tests and reviews, I have to be pretty picky about what's actually worth my time (and space on my shelves). When I saw the gorgeous products on offer from Crabtree & Evelyn, I knew they fit the bill.

Their beauty products and lifestyle accessories include great ingredients and have incredible scents and come in incredible packaging. As soon as I saw the brand, I couldn't resist the offer to try a few things out myself. I tested six of their products, and I can say that the quality of their products matches the quality of their packaging.

The Products

Stars in the Night Sky Room Mist: $25

I love how a deliciously scented room mist can instantly transform the feel of a space, and this Stars in the Night Sky mist has become a fast favorite of mine. Its dreamy, powdery scent combines orange, sandalwood and musk, and for me, it always evokes bedtime. I especially love it as a pillow mist, allowing me to take in the subtle, sensuous scents as I drift off. And while you may personally like it for fragrancing your desk space for a feeling of calm and relaxation, I find it a bit too sleepy for that.

Spiced Honey Bath Syrup: $35

This bubble bath is different from anything else I've tried before. When I unscrewed the cap and took my first whiff, it smelled of strong honey, with a hint of vanilla and gingery spice, and I knew that I was in for a treat when it came time for my next soak. I added it to the bath, pouring a bit under the running water and generating loads of luxurious bubbles, filling the air with the spiced honey scent. It made the bath so relaxing and luxurious, and my skin also felt quite moisturized and silky when I was done.

Volcanic Ash Face Mask: $36

Crabtree & Evelyn's Volcanic Ash Face Mask belongs to their Bali line, which has the most gorgeous black packaging featuring a bold gold design incorporating an eye, the mountains, the sun and the moon. It was inspired by ancient Balinese mud bath rituals, using volcanic ash and bamboo charcoal to gently exfoliate and pull away impurities, plus green tea and kaolin clay to soothe and protect skin. Unlike many other clay and ash masks I've tried in the past, I loved that this mask is pre-mixed, making it so much easier to take care of my skin and pamper myself. It has a fresh floral smell, and when I apply it, I always feel a bit of a tingle on my skin, which tells me immediately that it's working, and after rinsing it off, my pores look smaller and my skin looks brighter.

Sweet Sap Hair Mask: $36

While I have a cabinet full of conditioners I love, this one may be my favorite—as well as the one that conditions my hair most deeply. It has a delicious honey scent and is so thick and creamy that I feel how much more moisturizing it is than my other products as soon as I apply it to my hair. Once I'm out of the shower, my hair is light yet silky, with zero frizz or tangles whatsoever. I only have to use it once or twice a week for long-lasting hair health.

Sundown Candle: $40

These days, I pretty much don't get any work done without a candle burning, and this is one I've kept in rotation since I've received it. The scent is part woodsy, part grassy, with ginger and citrus notes, and though it's called the Sundown, I think it's perfect for winding down the day or getting it kicked off. With each burn, it quickly fills the whole room with its bright fragrance, and its double-wick ensures an even burn and helps prevent tunneling, so no wax goes to waste. Plus, it's super long-lasting, and I haven't run through it yet—but when I do, the glass jar and its metal lid are so stylish that they will make a great storage container.

Coconut + Sandalwood Body Balm: $30

Last but definitely not least is my very favorite product I was sent, the Coconut + Sandalwood Body Balm.  It's also part of the Bali collection, and while the balm looks super solid when it's in the jar, the wax immediately begins to melt at the touch of your warm fingertips. The balm is so buttery and nourishing, somehow leaving my skin not greasy despite being coated in rich oil. It made my skin positively glow and locked in the moisture all day. And yes, the balm is scented like coconut and warm sandalwood, but for some reason, there are also fruity notes to it, and when I wore it, people always told me I smelled like Fruit Roll-Ups—and that wasn't a bad thing! The smell was exotic and invigorating, yet relaxing all at once, and I could not get enough of it. In fact, I loved it so much that so far, it's the only Crabtree & Evelyn product I've run out of.

Bottom Line

Crabtree & Evelyn has instantly become one of my favorite brands. Their bath, skin and home products are clearly made with high-quality ingredients, with some of the most delightful and rich scents around. Their global influences show in each and every product, and if they're in your budget, I think they're well worth the price tag.
