Today I want to share a short review of the Neal's Yard Wild Rose Moisturiser with SPF30. This product contains Zinc Oxide which is a physical suncream and so it reflects the UVA and UVB rays of the sun.
Here is the full list of ingredients: Pongamia Glabra Seed Oil*, Zinc Oxide, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil*, Sesamum Indicum Oil, Silica, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax*, Polyglyceryl-2 Dipolyhydroxystearate, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Sorbitan Olivate, Cera Alba/Beeswax/Cire d'Abeille*, Rosa Canina Fruit Oil*, Adansonia Digitata Seed Oil*, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter*, Tocopherol, Jojoba Esters, Titanium Dioxide, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil*, Cymbopogon Martini Oil*, Pogostemon Cablin Leaf Oil*, Boswellia Carterii Oil, Boswellia Neglecta Resin Oil*, Commiphora Confusa Resin Oil*, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil*, Citral, Citronellol, Coumarin, Eugenol, Farnesol, Geraniol, Limonene, Linalool. *Organically produced ingredient. Natural constituent of essential oils listed.
50% organic, 33% mineral - the ingredients marked with a star are organic.
The ingredients make this moisturiser a powerful product as it contains natural plant oils, butters and essential oils which have anti ageing properties (Frankincense and Myrrh).
With regards to the consistency, it's a thick, rich off white cream. I apply aboout 2 pea sized drops to my face and neck. It is easy to massage into the skin and after about 2 mins is fully absorbed. I do sometimes notice a little bit of the white from the zinc oxide sat in the creases of the skin underneath my eyes as my skin is quite dry there. So I just have to carefully rub it in a little more. I am mixed race and my skin tone is brown and it doesn't leave any white streaks on the rest of my skin.
Now whilst this is a rich cream, it doesn't feel oily or greasy at all when I am wearing it. I have oily/dry combination skin and I believe the Zinc Oxide balances out the oily ingredients in the formula. Therefore I feel that it would be suitable for people with oily skin and people with dry skin may wish to use their regular moisturiser over the top of it.
I have applied make up on top of the SPF cream, both liquid tinted moisturiser and powder blush/highlighter and they both sit nicely on my skin.
The Wild Rose SPF 30 cream does have a natural fragrance that is similar to the rest of the Wild Rose range but it is not overpowering.
Overall, I highly rate this product and whilst this is not the cheapest SPF moisturiser I have bought but it will definitely be a repeat purchase.
Wild Rose SPF Cream is £25 for 50ml and can be purchased here.
Until next time
