About a month ago, I was in Indianapolis on business, and the hotel I was staying at had some nice amenities. It offered LA Fresh makeup remover towelettes and a full line of Crabtree & Evelyn Avocado Olive & Basic personal care products. Over the 4 days I stayed there, I had plenty of time to take them for a test drive.
The scent is herbal and fresh, a good gender-neutral choice for a hotel. I liked the mild, clean scent especially for the soap, shampoo and conditioner, but not so much for the body lotion since it clashed with my fragrance.
The shampoo and conditioner did a really good job: lots of lather, rinsed clean, left my hair feeling clean and soft. I hate shampoos/conditioners that leave my hair with a heavy, coated feeling and these did NOT do that. :)
The only product that disappointed me was the body lotion. I have super-dry skin, and this lotion didn't do enough to hydrate it. It had a too strong scent, and it left a shininess on my skin but didn't really moisturize enough.
I believe that the C&E Avocado Olive & Basil product line also has hand wash that would be perfect for bathroom or kitchen. It also has a shower gel. I think it would make a nice hostess gift or a great gift for a guy. I liked it, but I'm a bigger fan of the fruity scents or almond scent and even the florals including the old school rose scent.
