It’s been just over a month since I attended the Neal’s Yard Remedies bloggers event and received Wild Rose Beauty Balm in my goodie bag (along with other things I will shortly be reviewing), so I’ve had time to see the effects.
It’s a multi use product that cleanses skin, gently exfoliates it if you use the cloth provided and of course moisturises. It has quite a solid consistency but soon melts on contact with the skin. It also has the most heavenly rose scent that lasts for hours. I love how NYR display exactly how organic each of there products are on the label and I was pleased to see that this one is 99%. My face is usually oily to combination and needs an exfoliator which includes grains and a lot less oil. However, it has been incredibly effective for me in two ways:
- When combined with the cloth, I use it to remove my old patchy fake tan from around my jaw line, neck and body. It’s more efficient at this than any other product I’ve tried.
- Like most women my age I have cellulite and some mild stretch marks. Every day after I’ve had a shower, while my skin is still damp, I massage a little bit into my skin. It’s had such an amazing effect at moisturising and evening out the look and feel of my skin, I think it’s amazing! I read on the NYR FB page that one women likes to add some to her bath – brilliant idea!
As I said, I’ve been using this every day for just over a month and it’s so effective, I’ve only made a tiny dent. I love it so much, I’ll definitely be replacing this product when it runs out – in a year or so!
