    fun spa experience at home, can get messy though

    I must admit, I was pretty excited to try out the Aromatherapy Distillations Revitalizing Skin Polishing Ritual by Crabtree & Evelyn. I immediately thought about the mini spa treatments I’d give myself with it on a regular basis. Ahh… good thoughts, indeed! This set comes with the Ultra Moisturizing Body Butter, Exfoliating Spice Medley, a cute little Clay Mixing Bowl and a handy...read more little wooden mixer thingie. So, the idea here is to mix some of the Body Butter with the Spice Medley and end up with your own custom blended exfoliating treatment. But, I did end up a bit let down after using it. The Ultra Moisturizing Body Butter was great. It's a rich and thick butter (reminiscent of the texture of cocoa butter) that's solid in the tub. Once you warm it in your hands, it softens and rubs in to the skin very well. On a side note, I will definitely use this product on my pitifully dry winter feet for an extra burst of moisture. Now, the Exfoliating Spice Medley was where I started to run into problems. It smells fine, kind of like nutmeg and cinnamon, but very faint. But, this part of the routine can get quite messy! I’m a bit clumsy at times, so I ended up with more of this stuff on my bathroom floor than in the clay mixing bowl. The Exfoliating Spice Medley is a deep brown in color and has, for lack of a better description, the texture of soft dried moss. The particles are difficult to mix well with the Ultra Moisturizing Butter and ended up sticking mostly to the outside of the clump of Butter I had in my bowl. After getting past all that, the exfoliation provided was nice and gentle. My skin was also left very moisturized afterwards. So, if you’ve got a little more elbow grease and coordination than I do, then check this product out! — 5 years, 6 months ago

    Luxury in a snap!

    You can set aside some 'me' time and mix this delicious blend for at home skin polish treat or for the woman on the go, it's a quick pick me up prior to a mani. The invigorating scent of lemon and coriander rejuvinates you and gets you ready for the day planned ahead. No time for even a quick 5 min hand exfoliation? Use the yummy body butter alone for moisturizer. I love this, but points taken off because it isn't recessionista friendly. — 5 years, 6 months ago

    A less expensive Mani-Pedi Alternative

    Packed with essential oils of lemon, mandarin, ylang ylang and star anise this fragrant moisturizer is actually more body oil than butter. Much like coconut oil, Crabtree and Evelyn's Ultra Moisturizing Body Butter, is a solid at room temperature but liquefies upon contact with the skin creating a thick sweetly scented substance better suited to a DIY mani pedi or as an alternative to massage oil ...read morefor those who are averse to the real thing. If however you are more in need of skin polishing rather than skin nourishing simply add the exfoliating spice medley made of ginger root powder, clove powder, cinnamon bark powder, nutmeg fruit powder, powdered luffa fruit fibers, and kuki seed oil. The enclosed ceramic bowl hints at the traditional spice bowls of the far off lands these ingredients call home and earth muffins rest assured, there are no parabens, sodium laurel sulfates, propylene glycol or artificial colorants. — 5 years, 9 months ago

    Unique Gift, Serious Scrub

    For a gift that's as effective as it is fun to use, you have to try Crabtree & Evelyn's Skin Polishing Ritual. Simply mix the Ultra Moisturizing Body Butter with the intoxicatingly scented spice medley in the ceramic bowl provided to make a body polishing experience that's tough to beat. The spice medley has bits of clove, apricot seed powder, nutmeg, and ginger, forming a consistency simi...read morelar to coffee grounds that really stays on the body once mixed with the butter allowing for it to be massaged in fully, without it disappearing quickly down the drain. What a great gift for a White Elephant or for the gal who has it all. She'll love custom mixing a one of a kind at home spa-like experience well after the holidays. — 5 years, 9 months ago

    Sweet Smelling Goodness

    A totally different body scrub experience but a great one! My skin is still soft and I used it 3 days ago. Words of caution, it can be kind of messy and you’ll be really slippery so be careful in the shower. — 5 years, 10 months ago

    Aromatherapy Distillations - Revitalizing - Skin Polishing Ritual-Really Nice for Spa Night

    Are you feeling tired? Do you long for a spa night-just-for-one, at home? Aromatherapy Distillations Revitalizing Skin Polishing Ritual $49.50 by Crabtree & Evelyn gives you a reason to order in, and tune out for a change. The set has two parts: a blend of aromatic, exfoliating spices that you blend with rich tropical body butter to suit your personal specifications. Mix a bit of oil and exf...read moreoliating spices together in equal parts of more of one, less of the other, to get rid of dry, dead skin cells, and smooth and pamper your body, hands and feet. This cello-boxed set has the following for smooth skin and a revitalized attitude: Jar of Exotic Spice Medley (5.25 oz): loose grains include ginger root powder (exfoliating, polishing), apricot seed powder (smoothing), clove powder (exfoliating), cinnamon bark powder (exfoliating), nutmeg fruit powder (exfoliating), powdered luffa fruit fibers (exfoliating), and kuki seed oil (skin conditioning). The scent is really spicy, reminiscent of the spice market in Morocco. Jar of Ultra Moisturizing Body Butter (8.8 OZ). This solid and super-emollient product has the uplifting scent of an essential oil blend of lemon, spearmint, mandarin, ylang ylang and star anise. It's good-for-your-skin ingredients include: essential oil blend: lemon essential oil, spearmint essential oil, mandarin essential oil, ylang ylang essential oil and star anise essential oil (Revitalizing), Mango seed butter (moisturizing), avocado oil (skin nourishing), coconut oil (skin conditioning), sweet almond oil (moisturizing); You also get an ivory, ceramic mixing bowl, and an applicator/mixing implement (I immediately misplaced mine, and just used a small spoon). I liked the "ritual" of blending the rough and aromatic spices with the emollient solid cream body butter, and the result was definitely smoother, softer skin. The only downside (if there is one) is that you'll have an additional bowl to clean, and the paste does need to be washed off and out of your tub. However, the process of blending the two ingredients together means that you get just the amount of product you want to use, in just the right blend to suit your personal skin preferences. No jar or tube of exfoliating scrub gives you this option. The ritual of blending also makes you slow down a bit and it feels pampering...and good. It makes a great gift idea, and a nice little pick-me-up that you can perform — 5 years, 10 months ago
