I received this jar of Mary Elizabeth Frankincense and Rose Moisturiser in a giveaway I won from Sophias Choice over Christmas and have been using it as my night time moisturiser for about a month.
Mary Elizabeth was created by a mother (Cecilia) and daughter (Claire) team. The company was developed after Cecilia had successful treatment for skin cancer and found that conventional skin care products irritated her sensitive skin. Mary Elizabeth products incorporate vitamin rich plant oils and organic essential oils and harness Cecilia's skill as a trained aromatherapist and member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
When I saw this moisturiser was include in the giveaway I was really pleased. I love products with rose and frankincense, so this was the perfect product for me to try. This is definitely a cream for very dry or mature skin, as it is very rich. I apply it very sparingly to my skin, as a little goes such a long way. It has a lovely silky texture which absorbs well and leaves my skin feeling very hydrated. I feel that it has helped keep the drying effects of Winter at bay. I would say the dominant fragrance is the Frankincense, which I absolutely love. This is a wonderful moisturiser and I am really enjoying using it.
I have taken the ingredients from the website as I couldn't get the to show up clearly enough on my photo.
