Neal's Yard Remedies - Wild Rose Beauty Balm

Leave a Comment
So, I have a confession to make. I have never tried ANY products from Neals Yard Remedies *hears the gasps of horror*. I won this Wild Rose Beauty Balm at a blogger event last year and it seemed like the planets aligned and it was meant to be (me....dramatic?). As I recently finished my White Rabbit Cleansing Balm , I decided this would be my next balm cleanser. I mainly use balms in the evening, even if I haven't been wearing makeup. I find them incredibly relaxing to use and give myself a mini facial at the same time with a lovely face massage, it calms be down before bed and I love it. I follow up with another cleanser- at the moment it's Oskia Renaissance Cleansing Gel . I always double cleanse in the evening without fail- I think it's so important to get rid of all the grease and grime from the day. 

The Wild Rose Beauty Balm is made with 99% organic ingredients including wild rose, patchouli, frankincense, rosemary, shea butter, hemp and beeswax. The packaging is NYR standard blue which actually *fact fans* reduces the light to the product inside, to help protect the herbal properties and natural fragrances meaning little or no preservatives have to be used. It's also recyclable! This came with limited edition 10th Anniversary packaging which I think made a nice to change to the more plain labels.

The scent isn't at all over powering and is melts down into a beautiful oil making it really easy to work with. I massage in and them remove with a face cloth (muslin cloths get too cold, too quickly) and there is no residue left. It's suitable for all skin types and leaves your skin really soft and supple and glowing. 

I was lucky enough to receive this as a raffle prize and was astonished to see the price tag was £38.00 for 50g. I personally think that that is a hell of a lot of wonga for a cleanser and wouldn't honestly spend that much myself. It would make a lovely present to someone but I do think there are cheaper alternatives like the White Rabbit Cleanser for £12.00 or the Body Shop Sumptuous Cleansing Butter which is also £12.00. It kinda seems like a no brainer to me. But everyone is different and there are some people that like to spend loads more skincare than makeup. I for one am the opposite- this cleanser costs the same as an Urban Decay Naked Palette- for me it goes down to which would last longer?

What are your thoughts?
