I, like Emmio10 got this as a small sample from a magazine and completely fell in love with the smell, the consistency, the fact that it's all natural... With greater emphasis on the scent, I absolutely fell in LOVE with it. I would buy 100x over.

This product worked for me for a while.
It had a light minty scent combined with some berries (maybe they changed the formulation lately). It went well on the skin, it was mattifying, it made my face soft and supple, my skin wasn't greasy after applying it. My face got oily few hours after applying it but nothing terrible. I was happy with it. But after a while my face got more oily so I stopped using it. I would try it again to see how it works now.

I was really excited to try this moisturiser. Unfortunately it didn't work well as a face cream but I am now using it on the rest of my body and it works great for that. On my face though it left an uncomfortable, waxy feeling and it wasn't particularly moisturizing. The smell is inoffensive, kinda minty. Didn't cause irritation or breakouts.

I first got this free in a magazine way back a few months, and fell in love! I have very difficult skin to describe so I just say combination. My cheeks are normal, my t-zones are dry if i do not moisturise after washing my face and will have that stiff feeling, but after i have moisturised and gone out, they are very oily especially on my forehead and nose. So i need a moisturiser that is thick enough to moisturise my skin, but not thick enough to leave me as an oil slick a few hours later.. in comes the POWER BERRY! I love the smell of it but it may not be to everyone's taste.. it's not a fruity berry smell but more herbal berry. The consistency of the moisturiser is just right for me, a mixture between light and thick which leaves my skin feeling hydrated, soft and smooth. My skin soaks it up and it doesn't just sit on the skin surface, like other moisturisers that i have tried do, which will leave you feeling greasy. You don't need much, just a small squeeze is enough for the whole face. I LOVE the fact that this is all natural! no parabens, no silicones, no phthalates, no mineral oil and so forth! and that it protects me against free radicals for younger, brighter looking skin so this moisturiser is ideal for those aged 16 - late 20's to help PROTECT against ageing. I prefer the squeezy 50ml tube that was free from the magazine so i got a couple of those to stock up lol but when they finish, i will be repurchasing it in the glass bottle form. It's on the tad expensive side, but when I find something that my skin loves I am willing to invest at all costs! Also, it did not break me out or make my skin go red/itchy, but i do not have sensitive or acne prone skin. I only break out at that time of the month. And I prefer to use this moisturiser only in the autumn/winter/spring. In the summer, I will switch to something much lighter as I also wear sunblock on top.

First of all it smells strange, I've never quite worked it out, sort of minty but not like full on mint?
The texture is the wierdest for me cause when you put it one your fingers it's so lovely, and it rubs/absorbs into the skin really nicely, but when it's all absorbed my skin doesn't feel smooth.
It feels a bit like I've got dried in egg-whites on my face.
I do love this though, I use it as a part of my skin care routine morning and evening, and it leaves my skin refreshed and hydrated.
I have mild acne, and I haven't had a bad breakout since using this.
And the packaging is adorable.

Got this free in a magazine.
Effects seem OK but I find the smell unpleasant (spearmint that quickly turns to cooking oil). Because of this, I use it as a handcream (felt like I was walking around smelling like a chippy with it on my face) and bought another copy of the magazine to get some more of the cream for this purpose.
The smell is probably actually a sign of the good quality of the product, most creams you can buy have so many horrible chemicals in, partly to make them smell nice, and Neal's yard thankfully are not like this.
However, I'd rather find something natural to use on my face that doesn't smell like this!

I got this free with a magazine some months ago and was very excited to try it as I love natural remedies and skin care that uses them.
At the time it was winter and was initially disapointed as the moisturiser left my dryish skin feeling matte and flat and so the product was dumped in the "Not as good as I thought it would be" section of my cosmetic storage.
Fast forward to the warmer months and my current moisturiser (Lacura coq10 day cream) was feeling a little bit too nourishing under my make up so I gave this another try.
The results were great, make up applied smoothly over it, didnt feel too greasy but as the day wore on could feel that my skin felt moisturised but not too much. I shall continue to use and probably by the time I have run out will be trying something else (Due to my fickle promiscuous nature when it comes to cosmetics, not neccessarily related to the performance of them ;))
NB. have rated this as dirt cheap as it was free with a magazine and probably wont repurchase due to my reasons above.

Loved this! It smells pleasant, the ingredients are lovely, texture is light but feels beautifully soft, didn't make me break out, excellent moisture and my skin felt kind of tight after applying (which I know some people dislike, I like it because I imagine that a tauter face is a smoother face..). It did feel a little bit greasy where I applied it over my very dry patches but I gave it time to absorb and it did so beautifully. Price is a bit offputting but I would buy again!

I can't believe this product hasnt got more positive reviews. Personally im a big fan. Im pregnant now with bad chin hormonal breakouts and dry/sensitive skin all over. This moisturizer is great and makes my skin smooth and even and gets the red out. Make up goes on perfectly and my skin feels soft and hydrated all day without making it oily and shiny. Also no breakouts! I will definatly repurchase this cream.

As with some other reviewers I got a generous sample of this in an edition of Marie Claire magazine. I didn't have particularly high hopes I reacted very badly to Neal's Yard Frankincense nourishing cream a few years back. However I liked it so much I bought another two copies of the magazine! The texture is slightly runny admittedly but it sinks in well and leaves skin feeling smooth. I don't find the pomegranate smell too off putting. I probably wouldn't fork out £22 for the full size but the samples should last a while (I'm still on the first one and I've been using it daily for about 4 weeks)

It's a strange moisturizer :) It's meant for a normal type skin, I have combo, slightly dry and oily in my forehead, but it's not moisturizing enough, skin feel a little tight after applying. Good thing is that it's organic, but the smell is rather unplesant. The consistency is very runny, no spf. on the whole it's quite good moisturizer, but not for my type of skin, so I will not repurchse.

Just like the reviewer here, I tried this free with a magazine (I'm in Ireland). I too have oily/combination skin. Absolutely excellent product, which, for some reason, is available in a local pharmacy on the west of Ireland for just 7 EUROS!!!!
I figure this is a mistake so I bought two just to be on the safe side! This is a gem of a moisturiser, and for once I don't avoid moisturising (normally I just skip this, courtesy of my oily skin). It feels very good when applied, and my skin has a lovely glowing quality to it. Most importantly, IT DID NOT BREAK ME OUT!!!

The texture seemed heavy at first but was very quickly absorbed. Moisturized nicely, but did not make break out. Overall a winner for me.

Tried a tube of this that came with a magazine. Has a very light texture, smells a bit like bubble gum. I didn't think it would do much but I tried it on my face overnight and my skin was lovely and soft in the morning. I have oily/combination skin. I put some round the eyes on the fine lines and it seemed to help make them look better - plus didn't irritate.
£22 in UK for 100ml glass bottle with pump. A bit pricey but is a great all round cream and better than buying in pots of 30 or 50ml.
Update: had to reduce rating as it caused dry red patches on my face :-(
