My latest purchase from rubybox: India Hicks shower gel from Crabtree & Evelyn

Wednesday, 30 October 2013

My latest purchase from the rubybox online store was the beautiful India Hicks Island Living Spider Lily Shower Gel from Crabtree and Evelyn (R349.95). I first spotted this when browsing their store in Joburg a few weeks ago and loved the whole range so had to give this a go and luckily found it on the rubybox online store - it was delivered the following day.


I am such a sucker for a good body wash. I know it sounds like a bit of a strange way to spend your money but, in my mind, it is totally justifiable. I shower minimum twice a day, sometimes more, so why not make this as pleasant as possible by using a luxurious shower gel?!

I was initially drawn to this range as I loved the sound of the name (in need of a holiday much?!) On giving it a smell I was surprised at how it smelt. I was expecting something over-powering but got a really subtle, almost masculine scent. I think this is probably the aloe and hibiscus in it. A little goes a long way here and it foams beautifully. The best part for me was that, even though the scent is subtle, it sits beautifully on your skin post-shower.

If, like me, you have no clue who India Hicks is, let me inform you. She is the God Daughter of HRH Prince of Wales and she was inspired by her tropical surroundings to create her Island Living and Island Night fragrance collections for women. Below are a few images from her breath-taking holiday home. Quite the place for inspiration!

There are loads of other products in the India Hicks range, you can have a look here and see prices. They make beautiful gifts, I think. Especially the soap sets and the body lotion.
