4 Hand Creams to Help you Cope with the Loss of Crabtree & Evelyn

Categories : Skincare

If you have not heard of the disastrous bankruptcy that is Crabtree & Evelyn then we at Beauty Insider are truly sorry. Let us take a moment of silence for this brand who has kept our fingertips lovingly moisturised for decades.

They have lined our stocking fillers for years. Sat in our purses. And even been a go-to for that last minute gift. We will certainly feel the loss of Crabtree & Evelyn as a beauty community if they choose to close their stores in Singapore.

Nevertheless, here are our top 4 alternatives to moisturise your fingertips and keep your hand cream drawer full of lovely smelling creams.


Their simplistic yet medical approach to skincare allows you to find exactly what you are looking for when it comes to your hand cream needs.

Walking into any store automatically gives you that calm presence that you need from most skincare brands. If stores are not your vibe, they also have an online site that ships to your doorstep with little fuss.

We recommend the Aromatique Hand Balm for a variety of reasons. It keeps your hands moisturised without that greasy feeling and comes in natural scents that blend into your natural musk easily. All these qualities make for a lovely purse addition.

A long time great competitor for Crabtree & Evelyn products is and has always been L’Occitane. This Shea butter infused hand cream allows for moisturising as well as hydration of pores. It definitely penetrates to keep hands moisturised for along time and is a creamier texture than that of most hand creams.
