After reading positive reviews, I was looking forward to this moisturizer and I really like some other Neal's Yard products. However, this one did not do any miracles for me. It's a good cream to use overnight or during winter time, despite the slightly thick texture absorbs into skin very well, but there was no major improvement in my skin tone, appearance after using it for a couple of months (while I saw almost immediate beneficial effects with NYO Rose & Mallow moisturizer for example).

Great moisturizer, perfect for my combination skin. I have been using it both as day and night cream. It is rich in texture and nourishes the skin very well, yet it's not greasy and absorbs really well, too. Even after the first use I could feel the difference - the skin was much smoother and velvetier and became more matte yet well moisturized. The smell is very nice, too, and the jar lasts for a while. Will definitely buy again.

I liked this cream, it moisturized the under-eye area very well, has pleasant small and texture. The amount is a bit too small for the price, I somehow used it up very fast.

This cream exceeded my expectations. My combination skin felt very smooth and regenerated after it. I used it as a day cream mostly because after frequent day and night use during the first few days I felt that I needed more moisture. So balancing it with a richer night cream worked perfectly.

Excellent product - the best scrub I have ever used so far in terms of exfoliating, purifying and refreshing my skin. The price is also great. Will buy again.
Love this cleanser, it works really great with my combination skin and balances T-zone with the rest of the face very well. Downsides: stingy if gets in the eyes, and also the packaging makes it difficult to use once there is little left. Other than that, it's a great balancing cleanser, I have already bought this twice and will buy again.
Nice product - pleasant smell and texture but did not do much to my skin. Will not buy again.

Like this cream. For my skin, it moisturized the around-eye area really well and the effect was similar to Clinique All About Eyes except the price is lower on this one. Will buy again.
I love the smell and nice sticky texture of this product. It made my skin a little smoother and nicer in texture, but the effect was not significant. Give the price, I would not prefer this to some cheaper yet more effective scrubs.
I guess my expectations for this mask were a little bit too high. It is nice as the overall refreshing mask, however, did no miracles in terms of improving the skin. The thermal effect lasts for a very short time although feels really great. After the mask is washed off, my skin feels a bit greasy. I love Origins "Clear Improvement" and prefer it to this one much better.
This is a great product! Worked extremely well on my pores and overall makes the skin very soft, purified and refreshed. Also, one tube lasts for really long time even though I apply it generously. The only very minor downsides are that 1) it dries fast so may be challenging to remove from areas like temples or near nostrils and 2) dark black color - may get under your nails when applying or washing it off. However, these two properties are because of the charcoal which is the whole point of this mask so they are not problems at all. I have been using this product for >4 years now and definitely will buy again.
This is a nice product overall but nothing special, way too expensive for its price. I found the texture too thick, it was a bit difficult to apply it on the face. It worked on my skin as a typical scrub, exfoliated well but no miracle effects.
Love it! Pleasant smell, very refreshing - a perfect remedy to calm down before bedtime. This product also helped me to relieve the headache a number of times when I could not take medicine, I simply rubbed some on my temples and back of the neck. It is compact and handy to carry with me all the time, the only drawback of the packaging is that the letters on the label got smudged very soon. The smell is a little bit too minty - I like it but this may be not everyone's favorite.
Nothing very special. I liked it first when I tried the samples, but after using it for a while when I bought a whole jar, there was not much improvement. Overall, the skin felt softer and smoother and the color improved a little. I have a combination skin, and it did improve the balance between zones, but all the major things like pore problem, lines etc did not really change.
