Come summer and I have a new favourite body lotion and it is none other than Somerset Meadow Scented Body Lotion from Crabtree and Evelyn. I know my blog has many Crabtree and Evelyn product posts; what can I say I love their products.

Somerset Meadow captures the uplifting green scent of wildflowers delicately balanced with water lily and ivy. This lotion is formulated with shea butter, coconut oil and sweet almond oil to soften and rehydrates the skin.

This body lotion is perfect for spring/summer time; and the fragrance is so heavenly that it literally transports you to the meadows. This lotion has a creamy consistency; gets absorbed very quickly in your skin, leaves your skin feeling soft and supple all day long and hydrates it too. It does not leave a greasy or sticky feeling on your skin at all. This product comes in a plastic bottle with a pump dispenser which is very easy to use and handle.

The only drawback I felt with this is, as the product is about to finish with around two week’s usage left it is very difficult to pump out the product. I have to wrestle with the bottle to get the product out. Also packaging-wise I feel the bottle is too plain the outer box is exquisite but too plain a bottle for the price you pay.

Keeping the drawbacks aside, it is a great product perfect for summer. Priced at INR 1,850/- for a 200ml bottle may seem a bit steep but it’s worth a try in my opinion.

Have you tried Crabtree and Evelyn products? Do you have any favourites?  


This week I have coated my nails with Rimmel’s Hot & Spicy; an orange(y) tomato red shade which for me is the perfect shade for summer. This is my first polish from Rimmel and to be honest I am pleasantly surprised with the colour, formula and staying power.

Application is smooth and easy; two coats give the perfect opaque look and the consistency is also good. Does not disappoint on the staying power either; lasts a good 4 days before needing a fresh coat.

It is a Sunday night ritual for me unwinding by painting my nails with my favourite colour gearing up for the week ahead; and last two Sundays I have been applying this shade shamelessly.
Have you tried Rimmel lasting finish polish? Which is your favourite Rimmel shade?
