Review of Neal's Yard Wild Rose Moisturising SPF30

Posted on


NYR Wild Rose SPF 30 2

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 moisturising 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 or a facial oil underneath 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
