Since reading the gorgeous Ruth Crilly’s review of Neal’s Yard’s Wild Rose Beauty Balm on her blog, I’ve been hooked on this wonder-product. I must second her opinion, it’s amazing as an overnight face treatment; a generous slathering of this herby rose-scented balm before bed works wonders. I go to bed at night feeling well and truly pampered with the rich scent and texture, and wake up looking refreshed with a much-improved skin tone, which as a busy mother of a two-year old, is more than I could ever hope for!
The Chalkboard’s post on the many uses of Wild Rose Beauty Balm highlights just how versatile this glorious little jar can be. I use it for a range of things from soothing sunburn, to soothing toddler rashes and it’s not disappointed me yet. It also makes a fantastic foundation primer to boost radiance on those mornings when you feel your dull skin could do with a pick-up.
As a Neal’s Yard independent consultant, I’ve had the task of sampling a vast range of their deliciously scented products and learning of their benefits. (Yes, I know, it’s a hard life, but I’ll manage somehow!) The Wild Rose Beauty Balm intrigued me the most as it’s something of a cult product. My fellow beauty bloggers have found a huge range of uses for this little pot of luxury – ready for the list?

As part of the popular Rehydrating Rose range from Neal’s Yard, the Wild Rose Beauty Balm is one of their most popular products and loved by beauty bloggers, and I can see why.
