Having just got back from the U.K. where Neal’s Yard Remedies was my first port of call of every kind of natural skin care product, I’m now thrilled to see that it’s coming over Stateside big time. If there is one product that you need to own from the entire line, it would be their bestselling Frankincense Intense Cream. You can use it morning and night as a deeply hydrating anti-aging cream.
It’s a rich cream, so a little goes a long way, and it has a earthy, soothing scent of pure Frankincense. I actually spoke to one of the formulators at Neal’s Yard in England a couple of years ago, and she explained everything about Frankincense, and why they have managed to clinically prove that it can diminish signs of ageing. Moreover, Neal’s Yard is extremely responsibly in the way they source their Frankincense. This is important because like many other precious oils and botanical medicines, many of them are becoming over harvested, which will lead to issues with supply later down the line. Neal’s Yard only work with sustainable producers.
If you really want a double-whammy anti-aging duo, I recommend investing in the Frankincense concentrate too. It’s a serum, so you would apply on clean dry skin, allow it to absorb, and then apply the cream. Warning: you might become totally addicted. Oh, and you can use it on your neck, face and chest too.
