You Could Clean Up with this Fab Freebie from Crabtree & Evelyn


It's nice to have someone who totally gets you. Take my sister Pam. She may be six years younger but she shares my affection for coupons, clothes and anything citrus. Lucky for me, she lives in the sunshine state because nothing brightens my day like the smell of those top-of-the-crop oranges she sends from Florida. Ahhhhh!

Wouldn't it be nice to bathe in that lusciously fresh fragrance? Thanks to Crabtree & Evelyn, the folks who really get botanical beauty, one lucky Boomer Babe will be able to do just that. We've teamed up with them to give away a $141 gift set including six of their new Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus and Sage-scented body and hand care indulgences.

Giveaway - 600.jpg

This lively scent is inspired by the European tradition of citrus colognes that are spritzed on the body from head to toe and even misted throughout the home. Ooh la la!

You'll love breathing in this energizing new fragrance. Talk about a pick me up! Besides leaving your skin with a lovely, subtle scent, this sparkling blend of Tarocco Sicilian Red orange extract with eucalyptus and sage is like a wake-up call to your senses.

Together, this body-pampering trio also helps cleanse, balance and detoxify - perfect for both normal and oil skin. Antioxidant- and vitamin C-rich Tarocco blood orange extract nourishes skin, eucalyptus deeply cleanses and brings a cool, refreshing touch while sage purifies, deodorizes and soothes your whole body.

The only problem is picking a favorite from this orange-licious, new collection which includes:1 79994 Shower Gel 150.jpg

Skin Invigorating Bath & Shower Gel ($20)

Gentle yet effective, this skin-friendly gel is an exhilarating treat that refreshes and conditions your skin. Got time for a bath? Pour it into warm, run2 79999 Body Scrub 175g 100.jpgning water for a spirit-lifting foam soak. Or, if you're like me and always rushed, prepare to enjoy the silkening suds in the shower. Either way, you're ensured an ever so delightful, cleansing experience.

Deep Cleansing Body Scrub ($26)

Reach for this scrub when your body feels dry, scratchy and in need of a little polish.

Like the bath and shower gel, it cleans and conditions skin. But this time, exfoliating sunflower wax granules take charge to gently sweep away impurities. As a bonus, this scrub promises plenty of 3 79993 Body Lotion 150.jpgluscious lather, smoothing your skin without unnecessary roughness.

Skin Refreshing Body Lotion ($22)

Rubbing this lightweight, everyday lotion on after showering is pure pleasure. It glides on effortlessly and absorbs quickly so you don't have to worry about it getting on your clothes. What a heavenly way to moisturize!

Skin Silkening Body Soufflé ($34)

Thicker than the lotion, this rich cream provides a mega-moisture boost that I've really appreciated this winter. It's perfect anytime your skin feels dryer b4 Souffle 150.jpgecause it's packed with natural hydrators and toners like bitter orange extract, juniper berry and angelica extracts, and olive oil.

You know that caught my attention because I've heard olive oil is especially good for your skin. Even better, unlike some other olive oil-infused treatments I've tried, there's no greasy feeling. In fact, it absorbs almost as quickly as the lotion.

Ultra-Moisturising Hand Therapy ($19)5 hand 75.jpg

After trying this intensive conditioning cream, I've renewed my commitment to using hand lotion. I've been known to avoid it because (a) I'm always at the keyboard AND (b) my hands look for any excuse to sweat (sorry if that is too much information!).

But rubbing on just a little of this wonder treatment makes my hands nice and soft without leaving any trace of slickness. In fact, they seem to feel better each time I use this blend of six super-moisturizing skin conditioners. Shea butter, macadamia nut oil, and Tarocco blood orange, eucalyptus and sage 6 mist 75.jpgextracts soothe hands while myrrh extract nourishes cuticles and nails.

Refreshing Body Mist ($20)

This refreshing mist is a great way to perk up your day. Although it works well alone, I simply adore spritzing on this citrusy scent as the finishing touch to a complete Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus and Sage routine. Don't you just love layering?
