Neal's Yard Remedies Rejuvenating Frankincense Refining Cleanser

Frankincense is a Marmite of a beauty ingredient:  you love it or hate it. Personally, we completely love it, wear it occasionally as a perfume (a dab of the neat oil), and are magnetically attracted to anything fragranced with it.

And this is a particularly fabulous way to enjoy the smell of frankincense:  a cream cleanser, smoothed into the face and removed with a particularly fine organic muslin cloth.  (If you ever feel that muslin's a bit on the scratchy side, this should be more acceptable.)  The richness of the cleanser is down to antioxidant baobab and cocoa butter, NB.

It comes in a squeezy tube, and is a new addition to Neal's Yard's bestselling Frankincense range (which we first encountered when it did spectacularly well in a 'miracle cream' trial we were running, 15 years ago!)  Although frankincense itself has age-defying properties - evidenced most graphically by the fact it was effectively used in mummification, keeping pharoahs' complexions intact for 3,000 years! - this can be used by all skintypes, and all ages.

Provided you love frankincense, that is.
