Over the last few weeks I've really started to shake up my skincare routine in order to find the products which have the best effects on my skin. You may have seen Neal's Yards Wild Rose Beauty Balm mentioned in my New and Old Skincare Saviours post (link) which I received as a prize at the Neal's Yard Blogger Event in Newcastle last year (link). If you are a regular reader of the blog you will know how much I love multi purpose beauty products and since writing this post, I have realised that this product can be used for many other things apart from a cleansing balm.
First up and more importantly is that this is really good to remove stubborn eye make up (i.e 20 layers of mascara - slight exaggeration there). Melt a tiny bit between your fingers and rub over your eye area. As the products are 99.9% organic and are accredited as organic, you know that this will do no damage or be harsh on your skin.
Another good way to use this is as a face mask - put a thin layer of this on before going to sleep and then the next morning your skin will look fuller and more brightened (anything which gives me this effect on a morning is a winner with me). If I'm honest with you when I opened this I was expecting the product to look more like Botanics or Clinique's cleansing balms, but instead it reminds me of vaseline (before you put your fingers in it) or vicks.
If you have been a regular reader of the blog you will know that I'm not a fan of rose scented products, however with this Beauty Balm you do slightly smell the rose, however for me I believe it has more of a herbal scent which isn't a bad thing. The price for me does seem very expensive, however I've been using this regularly and I'm yet to make any dent in this - a little does go a very long way which is excellent value for money. However I think Neal's Yard should do this in a smaller version - hint hint. However if you are on the look out for a multi purpose Beauty Balm and money is no object I'd definitely recommend trying this out next time you're out shopping.
