Neal's Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense Concentrate

Neal's Yard Remedies

A sample of age defying skin care landed through my letterbox and never was I more pleased to receive a sample from a brand I use, my love of their Wild Rose Cleansing Balm is well known. I rarely accept anything sample wise unless it's a brand I already use or have an interest in and products I would buy for myself - I'm getting fussy in my old age.

My Thoughts; 

I have been using these samples for several months, stopping and starting to really get a feel for the product and a true finding for how it works on my skin. 
I have used this in conjunction with the Frankincense Intense Cream which the company unsurprisingly recommend you use after the concentrate to get the combined results, these products were formulated to work together. I tend to mix and match products. I don't always follow the recommendations and thought these work superbly together.  I wasn't disappointed when I used other skincare alongside them either.
I love the warm spicy smell of this product and don't let spicy make you think irritating, it isn't, it just smells and feels lovely. 
As part of my morning routine this replaced my Estee Lauder ANR. This smooth gel blended easily and left my skin feeling hydrated, I wasn't desperate to put the cream on, my skin felt comfortable.
As part of my evening routine, again it replaced existing my routine and I found it worked equally well, I did notice my skin was brighter the next morning and since whacking the heating on recently my skin had become slightly parched, not so when using this however. 

Working my way through the samples certainly gave me a decent amount of product and as with anything decent in skincare, a little goes a long way. I found the concentrate soothing and hydrating, it left my skin smooth and I didn't particularly miss my Advanced Night Repair! I also use this around my eyes (I am a rule breaker) and it left them hydrated and no dry areas which I do get with eye creams. 
A lovely product for people wanting to up their skin care and give skin that little extra, a beautiful organic product. 
I would definitely pay for this and add it my skincare vault.
