Neal's Yard Remedies Beauty Balm

I love the concept behind Neal's Yard Remedies as I like the idea of putting good ingredients into my skin and knowing it's natural! Their beauty balm is a quite expensive product (although the brand isn't the cheapest out there), but is my favourite product I have tried so far from the company. 

NYR say "The exceptionally high levels of wild rosehip oil – a potent antioxidant proven to help repair, firm and smooth the skin – are combined with geranium, starflower, hemp and rosemary seed oil, to help decongest and enrich the skin, restoring its natural radiance."

The balm has so many uses, cleanser, face mask, moisturiser, cuticle oil...the list goes on. A little goes an awfully long way so don't let the price put you off. I usually use this as a cleanser/deep treatment for my face. It removes heavy make up beautifully; rub some on your face and leave it for 5 minutes to allow the oils to absorb into the skin. Then take a muslin cloth (you receive a free pure cotton muslin cloth with purchase) and use hot water and the cloth to buff away the product and your make up.

The closest product this can be compared to is the Eve Lom Cleanser which I had a sample of. Now I hated the Eve Lom one for one reason; the smell. I just couldn't get along with it and it made me feel sick. I much prefer the NYR Beauty Balm as the smell is better and the texture is smoother in my opinion.

Let me know if you have any other uses for this product as I would love to find out!
