I am a big fan of multipurpose products and I've had my eye on the Neal's Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm for a while, receiving rave reviews from the beauty industry since it's release. An award-winning product from a brand renowned for their natural organic skincare, I've spent the last four weeks putting this cult beauty product to the test - is it really as good as everyone says?

The Neal's Yard Remedies Wild Rose Beauty Balm (£40) has been created to be used in a multitude of ways, each with the aim to help your skin glow with radiance. It's rich in provitamin A, which is a source of Retinol, as well as Vitamin E and anti-oxidant rich organic wild Rosehip Seed Oil, which are both beneficial to protecting, nurturing and nourishing skin. There's also a lovely blend of organic Geranium and Patchouli essential oils, which help give skin a healthy glow.

I wasn't always a fan of multi-purpose products, but over the years I have come to love their brilliance in being able to do more than one thing; it means you can save money where you can, by investing in one handy product rather than several. So how exactly can you use the Wild Rose Beauty Balm?

You can use it as an exfoliating cleanser, teaming with the Neal's Yard Remedies Organic Muslin Face Cloth (£3) to give your skin a gentle exfoliation and radiance boost. The balm itself has a fairly light consistency and a little goes a long way; it massages into skin well, removes makeup with ease and also feels incredibly pampering. The scent of rose is quite prominent, but also very subtle so shouldn't be off-putting for those who prefer unscented products.

I do love using this as a balm cleanser particularly for my evening cleansing routine, but there are a few other uses I'm enjoying this product for more, which is helping to soothe and replenish my dehydrated winter skin.

You can use the Wild Rose Beauty Balm as an intensive nourishing skin treatment, either by popping it on for 30 minutes like a face mask before rinsing off with a warm muslin cloth and applying your skincare as normal, or you can use it as an overnight treatment. I've found doing this once a week really makes a difference to my skin at the moment, which is more dehydrated than usual.

I also like to use this balm as a lip and cuticle treatment, applying before bed. A little goes a long way and I find it helps to keep my cuticles softer in this cold winter weather. Neal's Yard Remedies also recommending using it for all those little finishing touches, such as taming your brows or adding a touch of highlight to your cheekbones.

This really is a do-all beauty product and I can see why it's so popular - it's my go-to multipurpose must-have right now. A 50g glass jar (with a rather beautiful design, might I add) will set you back £40, which for me would be a touch too much if I was using it daily as a facial cleanser, but using it the way I am is making it stretch, I've used around a fifth of the jar over a 4-5 week period, a little goes a long way.
