Fragrance may be too strong for some
I received a travel sized version of this product which is packaged differently from the full sized version. The light textured cream has an intense fragrance which overwhelms and relaxes the senses instantly. It would be a good part of the evening regimen to help promote sleep. The fragrance is long-lasting and the product is hydrating and soothing to dry, sensitive skin.
I am a long-time Neal's Yard fan and love the glass bottles, which keeps the cream fresh, easy to get to the very last bit. I use this cream mainly at night, it is rich, but only a small amount spread on damp skin will do the trick. My skin is 42 and once combination, now mostly normal to dry, but I go lightly around my nose area. The fragrance of frankincense and myrhh is soothing especially at night and I always wake up looking refreshed and never dry.
The organic ingredients plus the benefit of frankincense for mature/aging skin is what makes this cream superb. Although they have developed one specifically for the neck area, I like to use this cream on my neck as well. Makes a great night cream, and also a day cream in colder, harsher weather.
