There’s something wonderful I’ve been keeping from you; something I’ve been in love with for quite some time now. What with valentine’s day coming up, I thought it would be a great time to reveal my secret, as it would make a perfect gift for a girlfriend, mother, best friend, a beloved colleague, and why not a boyfriend; empirical studies have shown that men, too, will get hooked on this stuff.
Together with the Frankincense Intense line, the Wild Rose products are my favorite things from Neal’s Yard Remedies, and this product has only increased my passion – I am talking about the Wild Rose Body Elixir*.
The Elixir is a light, translucent, pink jelly. Somewhere between an oil and a balm, it greatly resembles a rose compote. The jelly gives a nice glow to the skin, and makes it incredibly smooth. Its skin-softening fats include wild rose-hip oil with brightening vitamin C, Brazil nut oil, and cacao butter. Acai berry oil is high in antioxidants, as well as skin-smoothing omega 6 and omega 9 fatty-acids; turmeric and grape skin extract provide radiance to the skin.
Like most of Neal’s Yard’s products, the Body Elixir is also an aromatherapeutic feast, whose essential geranium, frankincense, patchouli, yalng-ylang, and grape fruit oils provide balance and relaxation, and improve the mood. The product is now also in the updated version of my go-to Beauty Guide.
Wild rose compote will warm the cockles of even the coldest heart!
