Mary Elizabeth's Frankincense and Rose Moisturiser

British natural skin care brand Mary Elizabeth is the brainchild of a mother and daughter duo. Launched by Cecilia Rathe and Claire Huntley following Cecilia’s battle with skin cancer in 2010, with the aim of producing naturally-based products that would soothe and protect the skin.

The brand prides itself on using only the purest of natural plant oils, organic essential oils and ethically sourced ingredients. All products are made in Britain and are free from Parabens, SLS, artificial colourings and fragrances and DEA.

For this review I trialled the Frankincense and Rose Moisturiser, which comes in a 50g tub. It may not look very big compared to the 200g ones a certain high street shop is known for, but I found that a little of the cream went a long way and so the smaller size lasted me plenty, on top of being more transportable and so I could easily pop it into my handbag for use on-the-go.

As soon as I opened the pot of cream I was hit by the intense soothing floral fragrance, which made me feel like I'd just wandered into a field of wild flowers - a very tranquil experience! The scent lingered a little while after application, but wasn't too strong for it to be a problem when using the product on our face.

It had a thick consistency though this didn't make it difficult to use or spread out; I found it easy to apply and it left my skin feeling velvety smooth and with a matte finish. And while I often struggle from a dry and flaky skin, using the moisturiser in the morning lasted me the entire day. I did use it in the evening as well to get me through the night, but if you don't suffer from quite such a dry skin, then applying it once daily should suffice.

With a beautiful and addictive floral fragrance and great moisturising qualities, this is one product I'll definitely continue using.
