Organic Wednesday – Neal’s Yard

By Get Lippie

Just a very, very, very quick post today, I’m rushed for time, and I need to gather my thoughts for my Selfridges/Wholefoods saga post tomorrow!

Winter’s really set in this week, and it’s now officially running up to Christmas, so I thought I’d feature something at least a little bit topical this week: Neal’s Yard Frankincense Cream.  I love this stuff, with the change in the weather I find you sometimes need something very soothing and cushion-y to protect your skin, and this moisturiser works a treat.  It’s rich enough to protect even my dry and sensitive skin from the weather, but it applies matte, so if your skin is more on the oily side, then you won’t find it turning you into a greasy mess after a couple of hours either.

And it smells divine!  Kind of deep, and incense-ish. The scent doesn’t linger, but it’s a nice smell whilst it’s around.  I noticed earlier today that Neal’s Yard are doing limited edition tubes of this for £10.50 at the moment, which is an ideal way to try the cream, it normally retails for £20 per 50g jar (pshaw!  I hate moisturisers in jars, so unhygenic!) so if you’re needing something a little richer, and not too on the pricey side, this is great.  I got a tube this size free with a magazine a while ago, and it lasted for a couple of months of daily use – a little goes a long way.  That said, I bought stocked up and bought two more tubes at lunchtime! I’ve been using it for a while alongside Nude Facial Cleansing Oil and Elemental Herbology Cell Food serum, and I can honestly say I love the way my skin looks at the moment – not something I say very often at all. More about the other two products in my daily routine later …
