May’s Fave Freebie – Neal’s Yard Remedies Wild Rose Hand Cream (With Review)

When presented with the prospect of scoring myself a rose-scented beauty freebie, there is only one possible outcome – I will end up getting it!

That is precisely what happened a few days back, as I was checking out the June editions (goodness, June already!) of the monthly lifestyle press.

Marie Claire is this month giving away a Neal’s Yard Remedies hand cream (worth £10) with every issue. There are three scents to collect, including ‘Wild Rose’ – a freebie that sent me ‘wild’ with excitement (those who read my blog regularly may know that I have a monstrous obsession for anything containing the merest whiff of rose).

If rose is not your thing, though, the other scents to hunt down are Garden Mint & Bergamot, and Geranium & Orange. More info here.

Equally, if you’ve already got far too many hand creams in your stash (I have but who cares?!), you could always pick up InStyle, which is bundled with a sample of Clinique’s Smart Custom Serum - more info  here.

Neal’s Yard Wild Rose Hand Cream – Quick Review!

This 92% organic hand cream (swatched above) is formulated with wild rose hip oil and a blend of essentials oils designed to balance the senses, including almond, geranium, frankincense and ylang ylang. It is rich and creamy, leaves skin feeling deeply soft and nourished, and has a good amount of rose fragrance too – I’m sniffing my hands now as I write this, mmm…!


  1. I have really really dry skin and this looks like something for me :) Thanks for sharing Xx

  2. I'm the same with Lavender-scented things. I can't get enough!

  3. I have bought the rose and the bergamot & mint x

  4. This sounds so lush! I can't wait for my Marie Claire to arrive (I adore Kerry Washington!)! T.

  5. This freebie is amazing! I love rose scent and Neal's Yard a lot! I have a hand cream from Neal's Yard and it's citrus scented, but rose is so feminine, I would love to have it! I believe you wrote and felt that mmmmm beautiful scent - it is also good for a nice start of the day! And yes, omg, it's nearly the middle of the year.... is earth speeding or what?

  6. I'm trying to source another Wild Rose one without much luck - some shops are completely out of the magazine already! x
