Crabtree & Evelyn Citron, Honey & Coriander Hand Therapy Tin
It used to be the practice in years past to place gifts on the tree, as well as under it. This age old tradition has been brought back Crabtree & Evelyn this year, with their seasonal range of vintage inspired Christmas decorations that each contain a little gift!
The Citron, Honey & Coriander Hand Therapy Tin is beautiful in every way. The tin itself has the most incredible Victorian feel to it, with muted festive colours that scream Christmas and a ribbon from which to suspend it on the tree. This is the kind of tin that becomes a keepsake!
Hiding inside the glorious tin are two tubes of the Citron, Honey & Coriander Hand Therapy cream. Infused with Shea butter and macadamia nut, the cream is extremely moisturising and will leave the hands feeling nourished and scented with a ‘vibrant citrus’.
