Tarocco Orange Body Lotion
I have to admit , this is the first time I have tried this brand and to be honest was actually very interested in giving it a try.
Crabtree & Evelyn were founded over 40 years ago from a small , family-run business specialising in fine soaps from around the world leading into today's society where it is now renowned and respected for its fantastic products which were natural with fruit, flower and plant essences.
Today Crabtree & Evelyn own more than 500 stores nationwide .
As you may already know , I am beginning to enjoy my lotions more and more and although I do keep reaching for my most loved tub , I am still searching for a nice little handy tub for out and about and to be honest something a little lighter in texture due to the weather now changing.
Having memories of biting into those red blood oranges as a child , it was only lately I found the interesting fact that the orange also known as the Blood Orange was also known as Tarocco Orange .
The Tarocco Orange , Eucalyptus and sage collection has a clean, invigorating and energising citrus scent with an uplifting blend of orange, bergamot, and neroli.
What they say about this product -
Drench your skin with our Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage Skin Refreshing Body Lotion. A blend of energising citrus and green herbal fragrance and moisturising glycerine, this lightweight lotion is infused with Tarocco blood orange, bitter orange, eucalyptus and sage extracts to condition and freshen the skin. So it's left soft, scented and ready to face the day.
Cost - £5 for 50ml or £16 for 250ml

My thoughts on this product -
Although I am rarely a fan of Eucalyptus, I enjoy the scent from this product due to the fact it (in my opinion) is over taken with the aroma of a sweet yet zesty citrus note that is revitalising and refreshing .
For me the scent stays a while on my skin but that is due to my own skin care routine, I have found that if you exfoliate regular , your lotions , creams and butters tend to stay on the skin for longer lengths of time , giving me more of the product.
The body lotion in this small 50ml handy tube is easy to handle with a flip lid that secures easily for convenience.
I love the clean yet attractive design that Crabtree & Evelyn have on all of their items , the prints are inspiring and captivating to my inner natural self and makes me want to buy them .
The cream itself is lovely, medium to thick but soaks into the skin very well without leaving an oily feel to the skin afterwards.
It does not take long for my thirsty skin to soak it all up and leave my skin amazingly soft, so soft that it actually feels like it has evened and smoothened out my skin immensely.
I can actually see myself buying the bigger bottles when this is all ran out, especially as I can see this being amazing for the summer with it feeling very light on the skin with a colling and uplifting feeling being left once absorbed .
So what do you think about this brand and product, do you feel the need for a nice uplifting scent for the upcoming warmer weathers?

it looks sound and seems like it smells great. My only fear is due to the Orange smell it would attract Bees and wasps.
