Gardener's Secret

Stumbled upon perfectly fabulous deals at Crabtree & Evelyn at Bangsar Village over the weekend; they had several promotions happening; all out to leverage on the Mother's Day commercialism. Well, the more competition, the better for us consumers right?

Beautifully packed coffret sets for mums ....

Pretty looking goodies up for grabs if you spend loads.

The handcream promotion really caught my eye: Get a small-sized handcream (50ml at RM43) free when you buy a large-sized one (100ml at RM73). This deal is applicable across all variants of handcreams; from Lavender to rose to the popular Gardener's Therapy. I snapped it up immediately seeing that this deal was almost too good to be true! My choice? The award-winning Gardener's Therapy of course!

Lookin' good, smellin' good, feelin' good ....

Details on the back.

An intruder! Who is this mutt who covets my handcream and interrupts my photo shoot ???

Why I love Gardener's Therapy handcream? Well, for a start, they claim that it is created for "gardener's hands"! That's some heavy duty claim! This formula features "intensively healing shea butter to sooth, nourish and protect work-roughened hands". Work-roughened hands! I like that! So serious. Not that I can claim to be a victim of domestic chores, but if this is good enough for gardeners (hard core) then, hey, it's good enough for me (kia-su)! Above all, I love the scent and the texture is rich. It might be rather heavy for those who likes a lighter touch but not as heavy as the L’Occitane Shea Butter (which I keep for pre-bedtime use as it’s heavier and richer).

The Scent? Love it! Fresh green clover, lavender, sage, rosemary and thyme. Damn, sounds good enough to eat!

I plan to get this cute set (pic below) with the 'stand' for the new home .... soooo pwetty .... will look so good in the guest bathroom, or kitchen ....

Well, for the uninitiated, Crabtree & Evelyn is not limited to just personal care such as lotions, soaps and scents. They have a wide range of home-y stuff like drawer liners, candles, cookies, tea bags, honey, preserves (jams) and even bathrobes and towels.

Apparently the cookies are really yummy though I have not tried them.
Oh but Beatrice has tried them, click here to see what she has to say :)
