Today I have a review of a new Frankincense Intense Lifting Serum from Neal’s Yard Remedies, launching in May 2017. This is my first time trying anything from the brand, so I really did not know what to expect!
First of all, I want to show you the packaging –
The packaging is super luxe, I especially love the gold embossed logo on the navy ground.
I love that the serum comes in a cobalt glass dropper bottle, again with the gold stamped logo.
Here’s what it says about this serum (info in italics taken from the Neal’s Yard Remedies website):
NEW Frankincense Intense Lift Serum is our breakthrough mindful beauty solution harnessing the ancient power of frankincense and over 15 years of Neal’s Yard Remedies research into its amazing properties. Sustainably harvested frankincense, clinically proven to promote a feeling of wellbeing, is combined with our targeted lifting technology to help you age well and stress less. Plumping hyaluronic acid helps to smooth deep lines while the lifting technology of micro-algae, ribose and linseed oil helps to redefine your facial contours.* 83% agree their skin looks visibly lifted* 85% agree the aroma helps them feel less stressed* 83% agree their deep lines and wrinkles appear reduced, skin looks plumped*
This pale lemon yellow serum smells glorious, and roughly two drops are all you need to cover your entire face. It absorbs quickly into the skin. I’ve been using this serum twice a day for two and a half weeks now and my skin has never looked better! I can’t wait to see the results of longer term usage!
The Frankincense Intense Lifting Serum is probably the most luxurious product that I’ve ever put on my face! It is pricy though, at $149 CAD for 30 ml / 1.01 oz, but because you only need to use such a small amount each time, I can see the bottle lasting a long time.
