Fabulous

5

I have used this moisturiser for some years, occasionally trying something new, always comes g back to it. It is fabulous, it is absorbed quickly but keeps skin moisturised for hours. I credit this and the Wild Rose Balm for keeping my skin in good fettle for my age. Cannot recommend highly enough. It is relatively expensive but is cruelty free and mostly organic with recyclable packaging.

Lovely hydrating moisturiser

5

Not sure why people have given this product poor reviews as I find it so soothing on my dry skin. No breakouts and doesn’t leave my skin feeling greasy,  just silky smooth and comfortable. I was given this as a present and will definitely be ordering more in the future.

Again like others, left my skin red, stinging and hot

1

I have used this in the past and have been really shocked to find that on first use of a sealed tub bought directly from the NY store, this has immediately turned my skin angry, red and stinging - so much so I had to wash it off straight away.  I have never reacted to a face cream before.  Really gutted as I used to love this range but won’t be using any of it again.

Reaction

1

I had high hopes for this. I'm a big fan of Frankincense as an oil and use it as an addition to my other face creams. This cream caused a reaction (I've never reacted to any other product before) My face is on fire, bright red and itchy

Not for purpose

1

Bought this cream from amazon and it is horrendous, sits on top of skin and does not sink in, no smell of frankincense like the one I bought years ago, am returning, what a waste of money, product should be recalled

Strange side effect

3

Whilst this is lovely and moisturising, I have had to stop using it on my face...it turns me orange! I note a couple of other people have said the same in their reviews. I know use it as a hand/foot cream instead, as I don’t mind the slight orange tone too much on my hands/feet...but seems like a very overpriced cream to use on hands and feet!

Used to love this product but won't be buying again

1

I've used this moisturiser for years now, and recently bought a couple of new pots from eBay. The smell of the product started to deteriorate really quickly, and I thought I might have been sold a fake product. I've scrutinised the labelling and can see it is in fact genuine. After a couple of months, the product starts to smell of wet dog. Very unpleasant. I've even thrown some away, hoping it was a one-off, but no, the second jar is just as bad. Not up to scratch. I'll be looking for an alternative unless Neal's Yard go back to their original formulation

Disappointing

1

I’ve bought Neal’s Yard creams many times over the years, confident in the knowledge that they are organic and have pure ingredients. So I didn’t even check the ingredients when I ducked into the store to buy the Frankincense Hydrating Cream. When I went to use it I was disappointed firstly, to find it didn’t smell at all of frankincense (they used to) and secondly to read the ingredients and find the second ingredient, after water, was sunflower seed oil and it wasn’t asterisked as organic. I feel, seeing as sunflower seed oil makes up a large part of the cream – and that sunflowers are farmed on such a big scale often using enormous amounts of herbicide – this is (or should be) out of step with NYR’s ethos. Especially as I paid AUD$60 for it. I feel let down by this company and no one responded to me when I emailed my dissatisfaction

Change of Ingredients - Poorer Quality

1

This used to my favourite skincare product, I even bought it for the rest of my family. When I noticed a difference in quality c.one year ago, I checked and compared the list of ingredients (old vs. new pot) and saw a change in the formula. I am quite into my organic skincare and know almost all ingredients and could see a change from higher quality, more expensive ingredients to lower quality and cheaper ingredients. At the same time, the previous price of GBP25 has gone up to GBP30. What a disappointment!

Same side effects as Disappointed reviewer!

1

I noticed in the last week or so that I have yellowy-orange patches on my face and neck. Only when reading 'Disappointed' review today did I realise it was from using this product! I'm going to use a different moisturiser until this goes, then I have the Frankincense nourishing cream to try. I've had this product before, and never had this problem in the past
