I adore Neal's Yard products especially their hand creams. I have quite a collection but I have to confess I've never paid full price for any of them. My collection comprises a wide range of products that have been acquired as 'gift with purchase' samples on women's magazines. I don't read the magazines, but I'm quite capable of buying several copies just to get the hand cream or other goodies.
Most recently one of the magazines had three different variants of the cream available. I already had two of them so I bought a second bergamot and garden mint (it's awesome) and this tube of Wild Rose.
I love a GOOD rose scent but I'd be the first to admit that not all roses are created equal. I don't want childish rose scents - the cartoonish, unsubtle ones that come in cheap products. I also don't want 'old lady' roses - the sweet, powdery ones that smell like grandma's talc. What Wild Rose delivers is an edgy, grown up, juicy and fruity rose scent. It's rose mixed with rosehips and then blasted with some juicy citrus notes on top. The rose is the star but it has a powerful supporting cast of other fragrance notes.
So much for how great it smells - but is it actually any good on your skin? I'm very much a fan of shea butter hand creams and tend to choose ones with high shea levels. This is not such a hand cream but it feels like it should be. Instead the main moisturising components are Soy bean oil, beeswax and sweet almond oil.
RRP is £10 for a 50 ml tube.
Oh ladies and gentlemen this is lovely.
Not only has it got super organic powers but essential oils that almost made me to chilled to work!
This company, if you have read my previous review don't do things by half when it comes to packing their products with all their knowledge of plants and what is good for you. Within this product is the following:
That sounds ruddy marvellous, right? But what does it do?
This product aims to provide your hands with the following:
BALANCES SKIN TONE
ANTI-OXIDANT- from the days pollutants.
This is a great product with a scent that is in no way overpowering at all.
The cream is rich in texture and sinks in well but just not fast enough I would recommend you use this when you have more than five minutes spare to allow it the time to sink in. It is not greasy in any way at all and it seem to benefit my hands more once I had topped up regularly.
I received this as a gift package of rose products, although I have my favourite brands and wouldn't personally buy this, I would highly recommend it.
