As someone who reads product reviews for eight hours a day, there's an overarching trend of commenters who only leave reviews if something is super great or utterly terrible. I think that's understandable: It's an extra step, and unless you have something to get off your chest, there's often not much to gain. So it's all the more compelling when a skincare product collects compliments hand over fist, and that's exactly the scenario with Neal's Yard Remedies Frankincense Intense Age-Defying Cream.

If you're not familiar with Neal's Yard Remedies, the family-owned English line was founded in the '80s, back when Kate Middleton's current wardrobe was popular the first time. It was the UK's first certified organic health and beauty brand, per the company, with thoughtful products that have netted it customer accolades.

According to shoppers, the brand's blue jar of Age-Defying Cream is staggeringly effective for plumping up lines and wrinkles (as it should be, for $85). "I guarantee you'll look at least five years younger," wrote one Credo reviewer, who dubbed it the best cream they've ever tried. Others said it "definitely improved" their dryness, crow's feet, red patches, and large pores, and gave them "smooth, vibrant" skin.

Those results stem from the cream's encyclopedia of anti-aging agents and moisturizers. Glycerin, hyaluronic acid, cocoa butter, and macadamia, argan, baobab, and frankincense oil hydrate, three peptides reduce sagging skin, and turmeric extract and multiple bark resin oils lend antioxidants. Used together, fans said the fast-absorbing ingredients improve their skin's elasticity and tone.

"Youth in a jar," began a 61-year-old customer. "The first time I used it, I couldn't believe the results. Suddenly, I had coveted 'glass skin'...[and] to top it off, it was bouncy and the fine lines around my eyes looked like they had been blurred in Photoshop." The cherry on top? Those effects don't dissipate; they last for days — or as long as you keep the cream on hand.

As a last international shopper on Amazon wrote, they can't believe it isn't advertised everywhere considering the "amazing" results. Maybe the brand knows that word of mouth is enough to spread the good tidings? It's tough to say, but you can grab the Frankincense Intense Age-Defying Cream for $85 at Credo Beauty or Amazon.
