The only one

5

This is the only product of NYR that represents any interest to me, since it has intriguing ingredients list, especially Prinsepia Utilis and Bassia Butyracea oils (yes, I'm a user who thinks that better leave the cooking oils in the kitchen and not for expensive cosmetics, so when I spend money I'd like lavish, exotic concoctions, not something I can buy cheaper in litres from the supermarket!). I ADORE the smell, I'd like it to be much more prominent, I'd buy this cream even for that smell only! I have to specify that I use this cream after 2 other products (serum and my unique oil blend) so as part of this set it works perfectly fine. The only contra is its unstable structure meaning that the oil phase separates from the water phase too easily - from the slightest stirring. This should be fixed by adding an extra emulgator. I add a tiny bit of sugar powder (the quickest way with materials at hand). And there I have my favorite NYR product! Oh, and I'm 46 if it makes any difference.

Really keen to try this cream as well promoted on the shop. Smells lovely but has given me spots and made no difference whatsoever to my skin. I even started using a 'normal' moisurizer afterwards

Different texture from 2017

3

I bought a pot of this moisturiser ( gold lid) in 2017 and 2018. The aroma has been equally beautiful in both pots but the texture is different. It's not as soft, silky and easily absorbed as the 2017 pot. I thought I'd found my favourite moisturiser when I bought it in 2017. I understand that natural ingredients can perform differently for many reasons, time of the year, etc,. but the texture of the second pot doesn't suit me as much as the first. I'm using it but not enjoying it as much as the 2017 pot for which I left a review at the beginning of 2018

Has the formulation changed?

3

I really enjoyed using this last year. It felt lighter & more absorbed by the skin. This year it feels heavy and 'sits' on the skin causing an uncomfortable 'damp' feeling when in a warm environment. I stopped using the serum, etc., because of the texture so I felt happy when I found a formulation that I'm sure was lighter. I love the fragrance as I find it comforting & relaxing

Love the product but!

Just received my first pot after trying other products. My first impression was the fact that a good proportion of the £65 was spent on the packaging! I know presentation is important but it gave me the impression that was priority! I'm sure the product will be fantastic though too xx

I have used products with frankincense in before with positive results so when I saw your new product ‘Frankincense Intense’ I was excited to use it after reading plenty of positive reviews. I have now been using the cream for just over 6 weeks and have not seen a change in my skin at all. I am really disappointed as the product was not cheap and with no visible change at all in my skin, I now have half a jar left which I will probably not now use

Does not suit me

2

I have used the rose moisturiser before and like that. I have now tried several of the Frankincense products as I was given a set for a special birthday gift and I do not like them. They are expensive and I would not have bought them myself. The smell is too strong and I do not like the smell. I can see that many people like it, but I do not. A colleague said I smelled as if I had just come from the souk. More importantly, the cream irritated my skin and caused a fine rash. So, I cannot give it or any of the others in the set more than two stars. I have given the product away

Suprised

I haven't bought this, as Bergamot essential oil is contraindicated on skin for exposure to the sun.... and, because I would never use a product with so many ingredients in it.... it's totally unnecessary. I am disappointed that nowadays Neil's Yard products are simply not what they used to be....... and I think their ethics are somewhat wanting these days as well......Although their marketing has certainly improved....

Not right for my face

1

Pity you do not sell small pots to try first. I’ve found this formulation to be over-stimulating for my face and have gone back to the ordinary Frankincense Intense Cream which I have happily used for several years. I think I’m going to have to try your new product as a very expensive hand cream!
