Conditioning and smoothing
Fragrance: The tart sweetness of pomegranate coupled with a burst of citrus and fresh fig leaf.
A chunky tube with a plastic flip top lid which is well thought-out ergonomically speaking, as well as aesthetically: the white and red colour scheme is unusual, dynamic, and beautifully composed.
A creamy pink lotion in which particles are visible. No visible residue is left on the skin.
Fruity without being heavy; the citrus lifts it.
--Texture and consistency--
Creamy yet effective in its exfoliation; grapeseed is wonderful for sloughing away dry particles without irritating skin.
--Effects on skin--
Skin feels really clean, and thanks to the seed oils, moisturised rather than stripped.
--Value for money--
At £17, it may seem expensive, but the ingredients are of good quality, the tube is of a generous size, the effects on the skin cannot be argued with, and it's on offer at the moment on the Crabtree and Evelyn website (3 for 2 on selected products from the range). So shop around - you can't go wrong.
