Neal's Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm review

Dear Neal's Yard Remedies,
Thanks for coming to Ireland.
I think we're going to be friends for a very long time.
All my love,

Yes, Neal's Yard Remedies has been around since 1981 and has finally come to Ireland.  Famous for it's blue packaging which gives a ye olde worlde apothecary feel, they pride themselves on being less synthetic and more natural  While there are only a few stockists here in Ireland at the moment, get ready for an influx of new consultants that you can buy from.  For the past couple of weeks I've been playing around with some products I was given at the launch and when I say playing around with, I mean falling in love with.

Let me tell you about the Wild Rose Beauty Balm.

You know I love a multifunctional product and this one can be used as a cleanser, an exfoliant or as a nourishing balm.  The main ingredient is rose hip seed oil which being an antioxidant, helps repair, firm and smooth the skin.  I need all of those things to happen to my face thanks very much. 

The Wild Rose Beauty Balm smells gorgeous.  Very herbal and you know it's packed full of organic ingredients to help make your skin look and feel fabulous.  If I'm using it as a cleanser, I apply a small amount of the balm to my face and watch it soften into an oil.  You know I love my oils!  It breaks down my make up and is gentle enough to use on my eyes.  I rinse off the muslin cloth and get busy removing my makeup and am left with clean, soft skin.  It feels like my skin takes up some of the product because I don't feel it necessary to apply moisturiser afterwards, that's how gorgeous my skin feels after cleansing with it.

Now, if I feel I need a little somethin' somethin' on my skin or want to treat myself, I apply the smallest amount to my face right before bed.  My skin soaks it up immediately and becomes even more soft, plumped and positively nourished.  In the words of Nicole Scherzinger, it is sha-mazing.  I'm obsessed with it.  Over the weekends I don't wear make up unless I'm heading out, so I've taken to applying it over my serum in the morning and honestly, it's one of the best skincare products I've ever tried.

It'll set you back €48.40, but here comes the justification process.  If you're someone who's into organic skincare, you can't get much more organic than this.  If you like multifunctional products, this is fantastic.  A little goes a long way, so it'll last you ages.  And finally, your skin will thank you for using this.  I'll definitely be purchasing this myself when I run out and have a list as long as my arm of things I need to try next.


You can find a list of stockists here or find a consultant here.



  1. I love products that can be used for different things, it defo makes it easier to justify a purchase :)

  2. I love anything rose-scented, so this sounds good.

  4. First cleanse then moisturise with the same product, sounds like crazy talk. I WANT IT!
