my Neal's Yard must have

Neal's Yard Remedies is one of my favourite organic product stores. Most of their stuff is 99% organic, which means no petrochemicals, parabens, synthetic ingredients (fragrance or colour) and sulfates (amongst many other long named chemicals which I do not recall).

My staple item from Neal's is their Wild Rose Beauty Balm. I have been using it continuously from 2007 - for everything really. It is essentially a 3 in 1 : cleanser, exfoliant and nourishing balm. You can do the the whole shebang or just one.  I also use it as a face mask, it is a lovely pick me up after an all nighter or a very long flight. I leave it on my face for as much as I please, and it calms down any irritations and helps moisturize the skin.

My only "can't leave home without item". Quite lovely.

I don't know if Neal's website ships internationally (I usually stack up when in Covent Garden), but Amazon sells it via third party sellers.

Neal's Yard Remedies Wild Rose BEAUTY BALM, 50G


  1. I checked it out, sounds really good, but would it work for extra sensitive skin? And also what does it smell like...cause I have a feeling it smells divine!

  2. yes my skin is extra extra sensitive.. and it really helps calm it down. As for the smell, its not fragrant like usual products because its organic and has a lot of different essential oils, but it has a light rosey scent.. I love how it smells it grew on me

  3. I'll check it out, yea if it had a strong scent wouldn't agree with my skin anyway lol but I love rose scents in just about anything!
