I used to use the revitalising one (could be used as night cream). I swore by it for years but suddenly seem to have become allergic to it. It has a distinctive but not unpleasant scent. I don't know if they've changed ingredients but I might be tempted to try it again - if I can find a smaller size. Usually costs about £25 but lasted me for months. Don't know about the facial oil as I advent tried that.

I think you can buy a sample set of minis for around £15. I got the rose one a couple of years ago. Pretty sure they do a set of the frankincense range too. Might be worth a look.

Do try a sample before you buy. The Frankincense cream brought me out in angry red welts (never had a reaction like this to a moisturiser before). I am in correspondence with Neal's Yard about it !

I think they've changed the ingredients. It worked for me for years but I've developed a sensitivity to it. Good idea to try a starter size to see how it works for you.

Interesting, I used to buy the frankincense night cream, then when I bought a new jar last year, I had an awful reaction it and thought it smelt a bit odd, as well.

I switched to the rose balm, which is amazing, particularly when the weather is cold and windy.

I use the Frankincense nourishing cream and skin oil without problems, my skin loves it. I tried the Rose balm, it was lovely, but after a couple of days brought me out in pus filled spots.

If you really want frankincense, try REN- I prefered it.

I've not tried this one but use the Amphora Aromatics Frankincense and Rose moisturiser and have done for years, it's cheaper than Neals Yard, about £7-8 I think.

no, different to any cheap moisturiser/oil, honestly.
