Frankincense Intense Hydrating Essence

I have just turned 40 and this is my absolute favourite NY product! I just adore everything about it - a little goes a long way, it smells divine, it sinks into my skin effortlessly. I use it as a base, after toning and pre moisturiser in the mornings, but also post toning at night as as serum. It works wonders - really invigorates my skin, without making it oily or shiny. I have sensitive skin and have used NY products for years - this has become something I cannot live without. I also take the travel version when I am away. Buy it - you won't be disappointed!

Frankincense hydrating essence 100ml

As cabin crew this is a lovely portable addition to my frankincense skin care routine. Just a little needed as it covers my face and neck in a couple of pumps. At 54 with aging skin which drys out it absorbs easily and the scent is gorgeous. Skin feels smooth and revitalised in the morning

This leaves my skin looking brighter and softer. It smells lovely and a little goes a long way. It's very light and quickly absorbs into the skin.
