Neal's Yard Remedies first opened their doors in 1981, in Covent Garden, London. With the strong belief that beauty should be natural and not synthetic, NYR strive to create high-quality, cruelty-free products with natural, organic ingredients. Their products contain no silicones, mineral oils, parabens, GM ingredients, phthalates, propylene glycol, DEA, EDTA, acrylates, nano, or BHT. They use recycled, recyclable packaging, are accredited by the Soil Association and are BUAV-approved. Their eco-factory is based right here in Dorset!
I purchased this product on our recent trip to London - see my full haul here. Firstly, I have to say that I am not keen on the scent of this product; you can smell the almond coming through, but something overpowers it and the combination is not to my liking! The formula itself is a thick cream that is easily applied evenly, without having to use too much product - I think this jar will last ages! One great thing to note is that, despite appearing as a heavy cream, this doesn't leave a greasy feeling on your feet and does sink in pretty quickly.
The packaging, of course, is gorgeous - something Neal's Yard do so well! The blue glass jar with screw-top lid house the product safely and practically. With 90% organic ingredients including comfrey, marshmallow, almond, and wheatgerm, this foot balm promises to revitalise tired and overworked feet. This is a non-GMO product with no synthetic colours, fragrances, or silicones.
Scent aside, this is an enjoyable product to use; massaging into my feet, it feels nourishing and relaxing. This definitely helps take that post-night duty ache away! It also helps soften dry areas. The product itself is really nice, but it doesn't top my favourite foot product, Lulu & Boo's Melissa and Mallow Foot Balm (review here), so I won't be repurchasing when it's finished.
