Good quality med-range cream

User Reviews

Strongest points
Price, respected name, an efficient moisturiser.
Weakest points
Packaging looks a bit cheap for the price, hard to get the last of it out as its a plastic tube.
Summary
This does the job fine but at £12 you could probably buy 4 similar-sized tubes from a less prestige brand. I know what I'd do...

Excellent As A Hand Cream!

User Reviews

Strongest points
Organic natural ingredients. Not tested on animals. Hypo-allergenic. Lovely uplifting, spicy rose scent. Handy size tube for handbag/hand luggage.
Weakest points
Cheap looking packaging. Fiddly screw cap. Thin consistency. No SPF. A slightly tacky feel before fully absorbed.
Summary
I was a little torn when I first used this product as to whether I liked it or not. I first thought the packaging looked quite cheap as I much prefer their blue glass bottles with pump dispenser, however if you like to carry a moisturiser around in your handbag then this is ideal. When I use a moisturiser for the first time I like to smell it first and then try out the consistency on my hand. I was pleasantly surprised at the fragrance as I usually do not like rose - I find it quite heady - this fragrance has a spicy, uplifting note to it. When I used the product on my hand I was very impressed. My hands at the moment are quite dry and sore due to looking after my horses etc during a very long winter and this product actually made my hand feel soft and velvety. When I compared my two hands the one that I had applied the product to looked smooth and moisturised, there really was a definite difference. The problem was when I applied it to my face. It felt quite slippery at first and then went tacky which wasn't pleasant - it eventually did sink in, however I still felt like I had a residue sitting on top of my face so I had to wait a while before I applied my makeup. If this was a hand cream I would definitely recommend it and I will probably keep the handy tube in my handbag to use just for this purpose, however as a face cream I have my reservations and would probably chose not to use it again.

Crisp and uplifting

This is a quality daily moisture from Neal’s Yard Remedies, full of natural/organic sources ingredients. With all these great oils and extracts you expect the best, which you do get. My skin is dry. sometimes normal in areas. This product is aimed at Normal skin, with a Rehydrating effect. Firstly when I opened the tube, I found it was a very liquidy lotion, not a cream. You have to be careful in using this, as it is so light, almost runny. I recommend holding the tube with the opening at the top, gently squeeze a little at a time, be careful if you lay it down, it will escape. I believe it’s been mentioned that the large version is pump action, which I certainly believe it needs.
The lotion is delicate, not thick, its also cool to the skin touch. It does take time in getting used to how much to apply because it is so thin and light. I found I applied a light amount, which dried very quickly. The I needed to apply a second within a few minutes, as it does give a tightening effect. Once you have put the amount on, your skin really needs, then its loses the tightening effect and settles to a nice smooth, soft feel. This lotion really should be aimed at skin that is maybe more youthful, less demanding, that doesn’t quite require all the richness that other daily moisture products give.
As the hours passed I found I did have to reapply, so it’s doesn’t have an all day moisture. If it was a cream and richer then maybe this would be different. This didn’t bother me, as I did like the texture and coolness a fresh application brought.
If I had any issue with this Daily Moisture, was that it didn’t contain any SPF. As this is an organic/natural product it can sometimes be difficult to obtain natural SPF reflectors in a cream, but it can be done, as other natural brands have shown. Although they aren’t of a high factor nor a guarantee of full sun protection. If this is something you are concerned with, then applying a SPF cream on top will sort this. I know this means double usage of different products, it’s really all down to the individual needs.
In this product we have many oils, from Marigold, Sunflower, Rose Flower as well as Rose flower extract, Lemon peel oil and Ylang ylang flower….all of these together bring a wonderful scent. Although the product does promote the Rose as its main benefit and scent, I found it was more the Lemon and Marigold I sensed. This for me gave the lotion a crisp refreshing note. One I do love and probably why I like using it so much. It’s not a lingering scent, so no need to worry that it will hang about all day.
Due to the quick absorption of this lotion, make up can be applied with no wait time.
I would certainly recommend this Daily Moisture for it’s uplifting scent and for it’s natural, no nasties ingredients.

Wonderfully floral

I adore the floral, rose scent of this face cream. It's absolutely heavenly! Also, I was genuinely surprised by the immediate firming effect - an unexpected bonus.

User Reviews

Strongest points
A gorgeous floral, rose scent - the geranium is incredibly uplifting. Absorbs quickly and a little goes a long way. Has an immediate firming effect. Gentle and soothing. Formulated for normal skin, but still hydrates and moisturizes areas of dry skin.
Weakest points
A lotion rather than a cream consistency so it's easy to use to much.
Summary
A floral scented face cream that soothes and moisturizes normal to dry skin. Suitable for sensitive skin.

A quality product but not for me

User Reviews

Strongest points
Obvious quality
Weakest points
In effective for me
Summary
From the packaging and the feel of the liquid you know that this is a quality product but overall I wasn't taken with it. As Coraire mentions the consistency is thin (I would say very thin) and it's very easy to overuse and waste. After a bit you do get into the habit of being very careful but even so I found that it tended to sit on my skin. I was very particular to use it only on normal areas but even so I didn't find that it worked very well. I found it less effective that other moisturisers and in fact it started to cause issues so I returned to my old moisturiser after a week.

I'm not sure I agree with the hot cross bun scent as I found it more of a sterile rose and faintly unpleasant. Fragrance is so subjective that I certainly wouldn't hold this against any product but it did add to my dislike.

I've said that I wouldn't recommend the product but I can see the positives in terms of quality so I wouldn't count it out as an alternative but at the price and effectiveness it's not for me.
