Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend, we had a wedding yesterday so we’re recovering from lots of themed cocktails and copious wine!
Today’s review is of the Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm. Not only is this a fabulous product in itself, but it’s celebrating its 10th Anniversary and so has limited edition print courtesy of British artist Alice Shields, how gorgeous is it??
Having never used this before I was intrigued as a beauty balm that has been around for 10 years is sure to have a huge list of uses and therefore a big following.
The key ingredients are:
Rosehip Seed oil: Antioxidant and vitamin rich oil that helps to improve skin elasticity
Borage (starflower): Anti-inflammatory properties and helps to restore the moisture barrier
Patchouli: Stimulates and strengthens skin to help with dry and damaged skin
Geranium: Balances, strengthens and smoothes making it perfect for any skin type.
The design from Alice Shields incorporates all of these key ingredients into the packaging which is a really nice touch and the colours go so well together.
The balms ability to smooth skin and restore its natural radiance is well loved by NYR’s customers and the multiple uses they have found for it. These include:
4) Lip balm
5) Make up primer/highlighter
6) Cuticle oil
7) Foot cream
8) Flight Repair
9) Eyebrow tamer
10) Sunburn relief
There are many more uses that I’m sure other people will know about, I wonder if it is any good to use on hair? I haven’t got that far in my usage of it yet but it would be interesting to know.
This product has won so many awards and it’s not surprising, after using it for a few short weeks I am blown away by how moisturising it is. I’ve been using it mostly as a moisturiser, mask and lip balm but have used it to help with pesky bits of dry skin on my elbows and for my cuticles too.
It really is a wonder product! My skin has felt so much more hydrated and smooth after using it and as my skin has been so dry recently its great to have finally found something that has helped to combat it. I’ve also not broken out at all which was something I was worried about with my temperamental oily t-zone and penchant for getting spots on my chin.
The balm comes with its own muslin cloth which is a nice touch and helps you to use it in its many ways. I haven’t yet used it as a cleanser as I’ve been trying to use up other cleansing products but i have no doubt that it will be hydrating and exfoliating,
I love that they detail all of the ingredients found in the balm and it has been certified as 99% organic by the Soil Association. I don’t think you can go wrong with buying a product from a company that boasts countless awards for its products and numerous ‘eco-principles’.
Just a few are listed below:
UK’s first certified organic health and beauty company
World’s First health and beauty company to achieve 100% for ethics in an independent audit
World’s first company to produce Soil Association certified cosmetics
World’s First Carbon Neutral high street retailer
I can honestly say that I’ve really enjoyed using this product, its perfect for downsizing as you won’t need multiple products if you have one with multiple uses. The results from using the balm are brilliant and my skin has thanked me for it, the packaging is also gorgeous and would look great in any bathroom or vanity unit. This is my first NYR product and I’m really impressed with it, there’s so much I’d love to try from their range and the Frankincense products were amazing when we tried them at the event.
The beauty balm comes in at £37 for 50g which sounds a lot but just imagine how much use you will get out of it, and how ethical it is. Almost worth buying for the good world brownie points right??
I’m certainly a fan and will be researching into some more NYR products to try in the near future!
Have you tried the Wild Rose Beauty Balm? Do you like multiple use products? What’s your favourite NYR product?
As L said yesterday we were at a wedding so so far today has been spent in bed or on the sofa. I absolutely exhausted today!
When the balm was rose scented I was concered I wouldn’t like it as heavy floral scents aren’t something I go especially rose as it always makes me think it’s quite an old fashioned scent. This is quite refreshing though and not overly floral or powerful.
So far I’ve loved it. I’ve been mainly using it as a overnight mask. My skin just soaks it up. I wake up with the softest skin and it doesn’t feel greasy. Even though I have oily skin it has been loving using this balm.
Like L I’ve also been using it for dry skin on my elbows and it’s really helped so far.
This is my first NYR product but my wishlist is massive already. I can’t wait to try more. They have some amazing scents I especially can’t wait to try the frankinscense range more.
I’m off to smother my face in the balm as I slept in make up last night and my skin now needs a pick me up!
