First, i love Neals yard products. I have tried lots and don't use any other brand. I gave this a go as i thought i would like to make my own lotion. Before i added anything to it I tried the lotion, it doesn't absorb well and sadly it made my skin itch all over. I am wondering if it is the high quantity of soy in it. I felt it was a bit cheap and wont be buying it again...Response from NYR on 29.11.16 'We’re sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the lotion. Please do contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can help you further with finding an alternative lotion.'
I love this product. I have never used any products of Neal's yard. Friends of mine has been recommended it since I have got such a sensitive and dry skin. I am quite happy with this one. I've been using this one for a week. My skin gets quite smooth. However, I am just wondering If I add essntial oils then I shouldn't be able to use more than a week???? nAnyway I am using it as its own. So far so good.
This is an excellent lotion,so versatile, it can be used with virtually any base and/or essential oil or even just on its own, which is the way my wife uses it,as she has sensitive skin. Personally I mix it with various oils etc. depending on how I feel. I have used a well known fragrance-free moisturiser from a department store counter (you know the brand I mean!) and this is far superior, and much less expensive.P.S.If you have ever used the BASELINE LOTION and liked it,well this is an improvised version of that.
I have sensitive skin which is prone to eczema, so I use this lotion as it is. I find it really moisturising for my hands and legs and a little goes a long way. A very pleasant and effective product!
I think the CREATE YOUR OWN range of products are excellent. They are so versatile. I have been using this lotion since it was launched (I used to use baseline lotion, but this is even better) I use it to clean my face, as an aftershave balm, and as a moisturiser. All of which are excellent. some days I use it as it is (unscented) and sometimes I add delicious essential oils to add to the pleasure. I would love a CREATE YOUR OWN FACE WASH , but for now I use the HAIR and BODY WASH on my face and so far so good.
