Issue one : Borrowed from Before
While out and about last week, I picked up a little sample of something from Neal's Yard Remedies (Ok, ok...I picked up two). Let's face it, we all love a free sample of something! These samples often land up sitting around in one of my many bags or in a random pocket. As it happened, I found this rediscovered one of the samples in my pocket yesterday evening.
It turns out this little packet of magic was Neal's Yard newly launched Frankincense Intense Lift Serum.
I have always been a fan of Neal's Yard Frankincense range, and this new product is no exception. It truly is one of those products that simply by applying it to your face your mood is lifted and you feel better about yourself...and the world. Frankincense has that effect you see, which is why I wrote a little article on its history just the other day.
It has to be said that I am starting to notice a substantial change in my skin. I can actually see it loosing it's plumpness and elasticity and that thing that all those older than me have warned me about... I am starting to become gravely aware of my mortality.
While my skin will obviously need more than a dab out of a sample packet to see any real benefits, what I loved about this product is how it was developed. Stress is one of the biggest skin aggressors out there, and living in London doesn't help those levels. Frankincense Intense Serum has been designed to help us "stress less" through an amazing blend of aromatic scents from the past. Not to mention all the scientific combinations of active ingredients that aid the skin in tightening and toning it's self to provide us some relief to our own vanity.
The fact of the matter is, ageing is unavoidable. Some will go against it kicking and screaming, cutting and tucking and plucking and pulling. Others will simply not care, and the rest, well, we will do what we can to look our best at any age. I only wish I had a whole bottle of this delectable product to help me along the way.
