Skin Elixir Organic Frankincense & May Chang Moisturiser

Skin Elixir is an organic moisturiser which is made here in the UK

Since making the decision to live a greener life, I’ve been meaning to switch to my skincare over to something more green and natural. But with life being busy with a new baby during the time that I started changing my lifestyle, I just hadn’t got around to actually looking at green skin care. Meaning I’ve carried on buying stuff off the shelf from Boots and continued to whinge about the lack of results or causing irritation. That was until last year when I finally dove into the world of green skin care.

More recently, a lovely lady called Shona from Skin Elixir got in touch with me via Twitter when I tweeted out asking for recommendations. Shona asked if I’d like to try out her moisturiser if she sent me a jar, and of course, I said yes! I was only expecting a little trial/sample jar, but a whopping 60ml jar arrived. I was and still am SO thankful.

About The Organic Frankincense & May Chang Moisturiser

The organic frankincense and may chang moisturiser by Skin Elixir is a 100% organic facial cream, and is hand-blended with luxurious, nutrient rich ingredients which are listed below:

  • Shea Butter
  • Sweet Almond Oil
  • Black Seed Oil
  • Frankincense Essential Oil
  • May Chang Essential Oil

Frankincense is well known to increase circulation which in turn helps promote a healthy and glowing complexion. Frankincense can also aid with cell regeneration and help with the appearance of eczema, acne, spots and scars.

May Chang is known to possess anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and antimicrobial properties, along with increasing blood circulation to enhance skin tone. It can also help control the secretion of sebum, which is ideal for skin that tends to be quite oily.

Skin Elixir is a fantastic brand of organic, green skincare which I absolutely love

Skin Elixir Organic Frankincense & May Chang Moisturiser Review

When my parcel first arrived, I was really impressed with the packaging. The box that the cream comes in is absolutely beautiful. You can tell a lot of thought has gone into the branding.

The moisturiser is water-free, so it’s quite a rich, thick balm. When you first unscrew the lid, you’re hit with a peppery smell of the black seed oil, which then subsides and gives rise to the sweet and warm smell of the Frankincense essential oil, with a slight citrus twist of the May Chang. It’s a gorgeous smelling moisturiser.

A little goes a long way, literally. I have heard some brands say this before, and have then struggled to cover my face But truly, you only need a small amount of the Skin Elixir moisturiser. I like to use a spatula to remove a little from the jar, and then warm it between my fingers before applying to my neck and face. As I gently rub the moisturiser in, the aroma almost starts to smell chocolatey. I can’t explain and, perhaps it’s just me. But it seems to morph from spicy and sweet, to a rich, dark, chocolate type scent.

I like to apply this immediately after using a facial mist/spritz toner, whilst my skin is still damp. I feel that it helps the moisturiser really soak deep into my skin. I’ve used this both day and night and can say that I like it equally for both. Never once have I ended up my skin going oily, despite this moisturiser being very rich.

It’s also never caused any breakouts. In fact, I find it has been fantastic at calming down any hormonal breakouts that appear. And if my skin is ever sore and irritated, this soothes it. I’ve even used it on my hands for my eczema, and on my arms after removing a Fentanyl patch to soothe inflammation.

Final Thoughts

Is it possible to be in love with a moisturiser? Because I am truly loving my Skin Elixir moisturiser. My skin feels and looks fantastic. Not only is the product lovely, but the customer service that I received was great. Shona kept me up to date with posting and checked in to make sure it had arrived okay.

Whilst I would absolutely recommend this moisturiser, please remember that skincare is a very personal thing. No two people are the same, and not everyone will get on with the same products. But with that said, I am very happy with my Skin Elixir, and I will be repurchasing once the jar is empty.

    Sounds gorgeous! As someone with acne-prone skin it can be difficult to find a richer moisturiser that doesn’t trigger a breakout.

    This sounds absolutely lovely – and the customer service sounds fab! x

      I wish you could smell it through my screen lol. It smells SO good! x

    I’ve not heard of this moisturizer before however from your description and your experience with the effects of it, it sounds like one I would truly enjoy. I like that it is organic and the essential oils that it is formulated with are fab ones that have so many benefits for the skin.

      It’s truly wonderful. I’ve always been skeptical of claims made by some skincare products, but I can honestly say this does exactly what it said that it would. My skin has never looked so good!

  6. 4th May 2017 / 6:19 pm

    I’ve never heard of this brand before! But they sound amazing, and kudos for going green! I find that greener and more natural products work wonders, and after reading this review I’ll definitely be looking into them 🙂

    • 4th May 2017 / 11:41 pm

      I wish more people had your view point. Green skincare does work, and really well, too. Nature has created some pretty awesome things that can help our skin, and I would much rather apply something natural than something synthetic that’s for sure!

    It’s great isn’t it when you get both great customer service and a great product from a company. I do love using natural products and it is amazing at how great they make the skin look and feel.

  8. 5th May 2017 / 2:22 pm

    I’d love to try this moisturiser, sounds amazing! Plus great customer service is always a bonus 🙂

    This sounds really nice, and it looks like a heavenly moisturizer! I’ve heard a lot about frankincense but never tried it, but this cream looks really nice! And also I love that you have the disclaimer that no two people have the same skin, makes me smile!

    • 5th May 2017 / 9:29 pm

      I am glad it made you smile. I find many people don’t seem to mention that just because something they reviewed worked for them, doesn’t mean it’s suitable for someone elses skin. We’re all so different, and what may work for one person may not work for other. I am a HUGE frankincense lover. I have a bottle of EO that I use for my body butter and deo. I think I am a tad obsessed hehe xox

    Sounds like this has really worked for you. I love products with shea butter in.

  17. 7th May 2017 / 2:59 pm

    This sounds lovely! I find that shea butter is really good for my skin, especially when it’s playing up and is really dry.

  18. 7th May 2017 / 9:28 pm

    Oh wow this sounds so rich and indulgent yet I love that it doesnt cause break outs. Definitely a win win xxx
