Neal's Yard Remedies

 Neals Yard Remedies    Beauty Sleep Concentrate* - £31.50, Geranuim & Orange Body Balm* - £29.50,   Plum Lip Gloss* - £9.50

I was recently invited down to the Neal's Yard Remedies Camden store for the opening of their Treatment rooms. I had heard of Neal's Yard before, I was just yet to try it and was very excited to hear more about it. 

The evening included a cheeky Indian Head Massage, wine and plenty of browsing their products. The store was small and beautiful and was filled with products with their signature blue packaging. It was beautiful! We were talked through the products and the heritage of the brand, they have been around since 1981! - I absolutely love that they still sell their natural herbal remedies. 

The store owner was lovely, and so was the lovely lady that gave me an Indian head massage. I know that if I want to try anything out I will pop down to this store. Great customer service makes all the difference. 

I was lucky enough to be given a few products to try out to introduce myself to the brand and their products. 

This is a night moisturiser/concentrate that is easily absorbed into the skin, it supports your skin's natural night time regeneration and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. As someone with quite dry and dehydrated skin, I was a little apprehensive about this product. I am forever loving my Clinique Moisture Surge and couldn't imagine using anything that would meet up to it. You cannot compare the products, they are so different but I do like both of them. This is a little less moisturising than I would normally use, but I do still really like it. I love using it on those days that you don't need as much moisture or will use it after a different serum or moisturiser. The scent is lovely, it's great to put on before bed as it is one of those scents that just help you sleep. So if you have trouble sleeping or are looking for a new night product, then you should definitely give this a go. Plus, the packaging is beautiful! Who wouldn't want this on their dressing table?

When seeing this product in store, I knew instantly that I wanted to try it. I hadn't used a body balm before, but after seeing this I was really intrigued and definitely wanted too. Luckily enough, this was in the goody bag and I really couldn't wait to try it. The product is a lot different to a moisturiser as the product is a lot more of a hard and oily consistency. It is meant to restore vibrancy and nourish dull or dry skin. I wasn't too sure on the scent at first but the more I have used the product, the more I have grown to love the scent. It is really moisturising, although it does take a bit more time to use and apply than a usual moisturiser does. 

I'm not really much of a lip gloss wearer, so I can't really say too much about this. It contains antioxidant white tea and a minimum of 92% organic ingredients including their beauty oil and organic sweet orange oil! Unlike a normal lip gloss, these are formulated to nourish, nurture and protect while still having the same glossy properties a normal lip gloss would have. The lip gloss has a lovely shimmer running through it, that looks lovely in the light. Again, this isn't something I would wear but if you like shimmer then this is definitely great for you! 

All I can say is after trying these products, I absolutely love Neal's Yard Remedies and I can't wait to try some more of their products. 

Have you tried Neal's Yard before? What are your favourite products?
