If you are a regular reader of my blog then you will have seen my recent review of the Bee Good Cream Cleanser. I was impressed! Firstly the packaging of the product was beautiful but, beyond that, the company is so feel good with it's natural ingredients and commitment to work with British bees. I have been using the cleanser daily since and love everything from the scent to the softness of my skin after use. With all that in mind, I jumped at the chance to sample a few more products from the range.
All of these products came in the brown corrugated cardboard packets as before - different sizes depending on the size of the bottle. They all had the bee ribbon and the label as shown above. The label is one of the nicest touches of the packaging and something I instantly fell in love with. The message is printed on special paper which can be ripped up and planted to grow wild flowers which attract bees!
Now on to the products themselves:
Honey & Wild Water Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing Water £10*
I love cleansing waters and use them every night in my skincare routine. I usually use them to remove my makeup before I properly cleanse my face and not instead of a cleanser. The product claims to remove makeup, cleanse and tone the skin with no need for water. I wear a lot of makeup and I like to complete these steps individually so I don't use this product as a 3-in-1 but it is capable of this and I would perhaps use only this if I was in a rush or had worn little or no makeup that day. I soak 2 cotton pads in this product and sweep it over my face, including my eyes, to remove the bulk of the products from my skin. This cleanser is incredibly sensitive to the eye area and it's honestly like wiping water over my eyes. It's not heavily scented but does have a slight minty smell. This does a lovely job of makeup removal and leaves skin very smooth. I would be tempted to still use eyemakeup remover as it can take a few pads of this to remove stubborn waterproof mascara.
Honey, Borage & Echium Intensive Hand Repair £12*
As I have mentioned before, I am a sucker for a handcream! I don't actually have dry patches on my hands, I just like to keep them soft and hope it will aid me when my skin starts to show signs of aging. I love the packaging of this. It's really compact meaning it would be great for having in a bag, very sturdy and unlikely to leak and has a pump for easy application. Bee Good make a daily hand cream also however the one I have is the intensive hand repair. I keep a hand cream in my bag and one next to my bed and this has become my bedside product. This cream is amazing. On application you can instantly feel this cream working. It's thick but absorbs well and leaves a residue which is waxy but not sticky at all. It has a lovely, light scent which is sweet and floral. I almost wish that I didn't love this so much because it would be a great cream to pass on to my sister. She is a chef and her hands are always suffering from burns and cuts and are looking pretty battered! She is always looking for a decent hand cream and this would definitely be a good one for her!
Vanilla & Honey Lip Balm £4.75*
I love the packaging of this lipbalm and always love a balm that applies in one of these squeezy tubes. It took me a good few days of using this to get it to work for me. The formulae is lovely and this has a nice vanilla scent however I found it absorbed quickly into the lips leaving me feeling like I needed to apply it often. I like my lips to have product on them so that they almost slide together. This product is conditioning and absorbs rather than leaving a residue. To make this work for me I have been applying it as a moisturising base for lipstick or at night time. It works well for both purposes. During the day I use this sparingly, patting it into my lips before applying colour. At night time I apply a thick layer, almost like a mask, and wake up with super soft lips. This is also a great priced product and would make a nice gift.
Having tried a large selection of the range I am completely impressed! These products are high end quality but without the price tags.
