Beauty Spotlight: Neal’s Yard Remedies

Comments : 8 Posted in : Beauty, Health, Product Reviews on by : Reema Tags: , , , ,

My friend, Shikha, told me about a special event at the Neal’s Yard Remedies store in Wimbledon last week. Guests were being offered a choice between a free mini-facial or organic makeover and a 20% discount on everything at the store. Shikha knew this would be right up my alley and sure enough, up the hill I went for some shopping and pampering to the Neal’s Yard Remedies in Wimbledon Village.

Neal’s Yard Remedies is an organic health and beauty brand passionate about finding natural solutions to improve health and well-being. I have used a few of their products over the years and always been impressed by the contents of the signature blue bottles (specifically designed to keep light out and ingredients fresh!).

The Neal’s Yard Remedies range includes skin care, shampoo, massage oils, aromatherapy, organic makeup, homeopathy, beauty oils, foods, seeds and so much more  – health and beauty paradise, if you ask me!

I introduced myself to the friendly staff as a food & beauty blogger so they knew why I was taking so many photos of their shop!

I was offered warm, herbal tea as well as a Neal’s Yard exclusive ‘super energy snack’ – dark chocolate with goji berries, mulberries, chia seeds, and other good stuff. I am sure I polished off half a bowl of the chocolate snack – it was truly, divine!

The skin care consultant asked me detailed questions about my current routine before creating a selection of Neal’s Yard Remedies products that would suit my skin type (mostly normal with occasional breakouts caused by too much cake and cheese !)

A couple of drops of geranium and frankincense oils were then added to the warm water for some aromatherapy.

The consultant then proceeded to professionally cleanse, tone and massage my face using various Neal’s Yard Remedies lotions and potions.

Some of my favourite products were:

Rehydrating Rose Facial Polish – I love the fragrance of roses so it was quite easy to fall in love with this product. The facial polish is a gentle, mild exfoliator and I will definitely be getting this product in the near future.

Frankincense Intense – My facial ended with Neal’s Yard Remedies newest star product made  using plant stem cells  and apparently,  proven to improve the skin’s appearance and texture within 30 days. I obviously couldn’t tell after just one use but the cream smells great and is an excellent moisturizer.

The facial massage towards the end of my mini-treatment was short but relaxing enough to send me into a slight daze. My skin felt soft, smooth and pampered and the experience definitely renewed my interested in Neal’s Yard Remedies products and therapies.

I spent a few minutes after the mini-facial exploring and discovering the store and here is what I decided to buy.

As an added bonus, Neal’s Yard Remedies sent me home with a goodie bag filled with a number of their products including the award-winning Wild Rose Beauty Balm  and the Beauty Sleep Concentrate and more!

Can’t wait to try out all of my Neal’s Yard goodies and tell you all about them soon.

Thank you to the lovely staff at Neal’s Yard Remedies Wimbledon for being so courteous and attentive. And, thank you, Shikha, for letting me know about this event!

    Hi Reema,

    I am glad you liked my choco and mini facial 🙂
    This blog looks fantastic and I m truly happy that you enjoyed yourself !!
    Arnica oil does smell herbaceous however it is a great trooper when your muscles feel overworked and tired.
    A few drops of NYR Organic Essential Oils blend of your choice will give you divine experience when you put them in to your bottle – just pop in store again with the Arnica Macarated Oil 🙂

    Best wishes
    Orsolya

      Thanks Orsolya. I am glad you enjoyed the blog. I truly had a great time. Adding some essential oil to the Arnica sounds like a good idea. I will def pop in store sometime soon with the Arnica oil and have another cheeky piece of choco 😉
      Thanks again and see you soon.

    Hi Reema,

    glad you made it to store again and that you tried some of our essential oils.
    Did it work in your Arnica in the end? Hope you enjoyed your visit again 🙂

      Hi Orsolya,
      Yes, I did pop in to the store last weekend but you were on your lunch break. I got some drops of lavender oil added in and they have made a beautiful difference to the Arnica. Thank you for suggesting. Will def stop by and say hello the next time I am in the Village. Take care!
