Goat Milk Comforting Bath Milk and Body Cream - Crabtree & Evelyn

Here at The Amazing Blog, there is nothing we love more after a hard day’s work than slipping into and a warm bath and relaxing. So we adore any product that will make this moment even more indulgent, and that will leave our skin feeling as soft and gentle as we feel calm, which is why Crabtree & Evelyn are at the top of our list every time. They have just created a Goat Milk Comforting range that we loved as it helped us unwind and helped us feel more like the pampered queens we are.

We were lucky enough to try the Comforting Bath Milk and the Comforting Body Cream from their Goat Milk range. Both products have been designed to pamper sensitive skin, and have delicate scents of Lavender, Geranium and Cypress leaf to help relax your senses while keeping skin nourished and hydrated. The products made us feel like we had been wrapped in cashmere!

Now, there is a very particular process to using these products, but trust us it is worth it. You begin by massaging the Comforting Bath Milk into your skin so that the product can sink in. Then, appreciate your time relaxing in the tub, before finally, massage the Comforting Body Cream onto towel-dried skin. We felt calm and relaxed and are skin felt soft and smooth and smelt divine.

Hydrate your skin and relax with Crabtree & Evelyn Goat Milk range. You can buy yourself the Comforting Bath Milk here for £28.00 and the Comforting Body Cream here for £20.00 .

Friday Favourites - Perfume Feature

Here at The Amazing Blog, we know how important a signature fragrance can be to your personal beauty routine. After you've fixed up your hair and applied your makeup, applying a bit of fragrance can be the perfect final touch to your ensemble. We all have a favourite fragrance that won't let us down, but sometimes we want to switch it up, and we're sure you do too. To give you a few suggestions for your next fragrance purchase, we've compiled our four newest discoveries that will please and entice your senses.

The new Heritage Collection perfumes from Crabtree & Evelyn are abolutely fabulous. In particular, our favourite scent was Parisian Millefleurs, which is inspired by floral scents of 18th century France. These include narcissus, rose, tuberose and violet. It comes in a simple glass bottle inside of an elegant baby blue box, which is delicately painted with fresh flowers. This fragrance is a must-have since spring is on the way. We found that it was a bit too strong to wear to the office, but loved wearing it out on dates and out with friends. It costs £31.50 and can be bought on the Crabtree and Evelyn website here.

The perfumes from Rouge Bunny Rouge smell simply amazing, plus they are vegan, phthalate-free and paraben-free. We got a chance to test out two of their lovely fragrances from the Fragrant Confections Collection. Lilt by Rouge Bunny Rouge incorporates the scents of nature, including fig leaves, peach, coconut and violet. It is the perfect balance between fruity and musky. The scent is perfect for any occasion and everyday wear. Incantation by Rouge Bunny Rouge has more of a woody scent with a hint of fruit. The smells of black fruits, fig leaves, mint and rose are infused to create a fragrance that is exquisite. You can purchase Lilt and Incantation on the Rouge Bunny Rouge website for £72 per bottle.


The Organic Glam fragrance collection from The Organic Pharmacy has created yet another enticing fragrance we couldn’t wait to get our hands on. The new scent, called Rose Oud, stands out with top notes of lemon, bergamot and lavender. Of course, notes of rose and oud are included in the mix, as well as jasmine and sandalwood. All of the scents combine beautifully to create a warm and sensual floral amber. The simple design of the bottle is classic, sophisticated and timeless, so it will look elegant atop your vanity. Add this scent to your collection and start your own fragrance love story. Pick up your own bottle here for £139, and feel the romance with every inhale of this glorious blend.

Let the As Sawira fragrance from Penhaligion take you on holiday with one simple spritz of fragrance. An exotic and sensual blend of carefully selected ingredients make this aroma a worthy scent for your vanity. The Moroccan-inspired top notes blend of bergamot, davana, saffron and absinthe had us longing for the beach. The bitter herbal notes combined with the radiant and gentle notes make for a perfectly balanced fragrance combination. With heart notes of rose and jasmine and base notes of sandalwood, myrrh and cedarwood, among others, it brings variety and offers a unique fragrance experience. Every detail of the perfume, from the scent to the vintage-style bottle, is well-thought and beautifully designed. You can get your own bottle here for £150.

Crabtree & Evelyn - Verbena & Lavender de Provence Shampoo & Conditioner

Here at The Amazing Blog, we’ve always had a bit of a soft spot for Crabtree & Evelyn.  Having featured many of their wonderful offerings in the past, we were delighted when they sent over their Verbena & Lavender de Provence Shampoo & Conditioner for us to try.  Following the success of their Verbena & Lavender Bath and Body Collection, we knew we were in for a treat, and these freshly scented products had us itching for our next shower.

Being such seasoned shampoo testers, we are aware that it’s often difficult to find a shampoo that doesn’t leave your locks feeling a little parched. Thankfully, both the shampoo and conditioner are formulated with moisturising glycerin, as well as lavender and lemon extract, helping to gently nourish the hair. The shampoo lathers to produce a wonderfully light and easy to wear fragrance, reminiscent of the idyllic French countryside. Those familiar with the popular perfume of their Bath & Body Collection will recognise two of the region's iconic natural scents, with French lemon verbena and lavender essential oils offering a beautifully fresh and uplifting aroma. The conditioner provided the perfect follow up to its cleaning counterpart, helping to detangle those stubborn knots, delivering the perfect dose of moisture without adding any weight to our delicate tresses.

Crabtree & Evelyn are definitely onto a winner with their new Verbena & Lavender de Provence Shampoo & Conditioner, which you can purchase for £12.00 each. You can also browse all of Crabtree & Evelyn’s products here. We’re also pleased to report that for every Verbena & Lavender product sold during September, Crabtree & Evelyn will donate at least £1 to Macmillan Cancer Support!
