Crabtree & Evelyn Tarocco Orange Launch

Last week I went along to the launch of CrabTree & Evelyn's new range Tarocco Orange in the Closer2Fabulous Make Studio. Not being a brand that I was too familiar with before, I was really looking forward to the event. After checking out all their products on the evening I have to say I'm in love.

 From the packaging to the scents of the products I'll definitely be picking up some bits from their range. The Tarocco Orange Hand Therapy is certainly as new favourite of mine, it reminds me of Molton Brown's Naran Ji Hand Wash which I loved when I worked there last year. This stuff is amazing, it's a nice thick cream that sinks into the skin instantly without leaving your hands feeling greasy. I know I hate that feeling and it can turn me off certain hand creams right away, unless I use them at night. The handcream comes in a huge tube which I know will last me an age. Have to say for €16 you're getting bang for your buck with this one. Crabtree & Evelyn products would make amazing gifts as they come packaged so beautifully in gorgeous boxes. If your travelling fret not, as I was told that the majority of products from the range are available in travel sizes. This makes me happy as I love bringing nice minis away with me. The vintage style packaging is so nice that I almost don't want to put it in my bag for fear that I will ruin it. There's also a shower gel, body lotion, body souffle, body mist and body scrub available in the range so they definitely cover all areas. Price wise I don't think the brand is overly expensive, the priciest products e.g EDTs and body mists are €30 so I believe there is a product to suit anyones budget.Whilst I was there, Leanne mentioned how gorgeous the Pomegranate Hand Therapy was and after giving it a sniff I definitely agree, I've already added it to my wish list. Hilary from Make-Up Anonymous and I have already decided to take a trip down to Kildare Village to visit their store, I can see my card being used alot so I have got to start saving. In the mean time I'm going to check out their range over on the website.
 I couldn't have chosen a better venue for this event. I've been to the Closer2Fabulous studio on a few occasions and I'm a big fan of the place. It's so homely, the perfect place for an intimate event. I've gotten my makeup done by the lovely Debs before and I was so impressed with the finished look which you can check out here. I'll definitely be popping back in soon when I have a couple of events coming up. I'll be reviewing some products from the Tarocco Orange range in the coming weeks so keep an eye out for that.
