Advent Calendar – Day One


Crabtree & Evelyn Spiced Ginger Hand Therapy, £5


I adore wintery ginger scents and waft around in them in all seasons. Rather joyfully for me, Christmas provides an abundance of spice-heavy new and limited edition products to hunt down. I am dizzy with anticipation at all the pine, clove, orange and cinnamon fragrances that will be filling the shops, and my mulled wine pan, in coming weeks. Combining this with the need for every woman to have at least 50 tubes of hand cream, at which Crabtree & Evelyn excel, makes it the perfect affordable treat. I’ve ordered myself three just to be on the safe side.


Crabtree & Evelyn have produced two other limited edition scented hand creams for the season; Frosted Fruit, and Iced Rose, which also sound delicious and can be bought in a beautifully packaged gift set. It’s so good I’ll even forgive them for the slight pomposity of calling it ‘Hand Therapy’.
