Gifts aside, let’s face it, the holiday season is quite a stressful time. what with all the parties and gatherings you need to look amazing at. Everyone wants to look his or her best but we all know that looking good is harder than it looks, literally. If quick fixes like aesthetic treatments are not your cup of tea, Neal’s Yard Remedies newly launched Frankincense Intense Lift Cream ($168, 50gm) might just be the miracle potion you were looking for, so you look your absolute best while partying the nights away.



This multi-action nourishing cream visibly lifts, restores and plumps, leaving skin looking firmer and tighter. The secret behind all this is the active ingredient Frankincense Active Phyto Complex, which has a collagen protecting and antioxidating effect. It is derived from the Frankincense by-product, which was previously discarded after the steam distillation process to extract the essential oil, making the whole process sustainable. The active phyto-complex is derived after the by-product goes through a patented enzymatic process.

After using it for over a week, here’s my final verdict, the cream feels luxurious on the skin and is very nourishing. I like what the brand stands for and the effect it has on my skin. While it may be a tad too heavy for oily or combination skin, it works really well for normal to dry skin like mine and I even use it on the décolleté area too. But here’s the thing, a little goes a long way so don’t be greedy and overload your face with this rich cream.
