Bee Good Skincare
Today’s post is dedicated to the Bee Good Skincare range. If you read my blog then you will know that just over two months ago, I entered a competition from Bee Good and Waitrose to design the next ‘Great British Lip Balm’ flavour. After a few weeks of thinking and testing, the final flavour that I entered was Lime Blossom and Honey! Not wanting to cover old ground again, kindly follow my journey to the finals here, and if you haven’t voted yet then please vote for Lime Blossom & Honey here 🙂
Bee Good is a British based skincare company that started on the kitchen table of bee keeper Simon and his wife Caroline in 2008. Whilst Simon attended to his bee hives, Caroline made use of the left over honey and beeswax to start producing what would become some of Bee Good’s award winning products. Bee Good now has a strong established core range with recent additions such as their Honey and Camelina Facial Exfoliator. Below is an overview of their range:
Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser £11.50 – This time of year I’m all for a gentle cleanser exfoliant. Bee Good’s cream cleanser gently cleanses the skin without drying it out. It comes with a pure muslin cloth that softly exfoliates the skin. Used first thing in the morning, it is a great way to cleanse the face, awaken and prep it for the day ahead. If you wear makeup during the day, I advise that you use the Bee good Cleansing Water or a facial wipe to cleanse it away. Then apply the cream cleanser so as not to get your muslin cloth covered in makeup. The main ingredient in the cream cleanser is Propolis which has been used for many years for healthcare purposes. Propolis is known for its anti -oxidant and anti- bacterial properties. It is also rich in good vitamins that are great for balancing and soothing skin that is prone to breakouts. Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser is £11.50 and can be bought here. It is also available in a new 30ml travel size option (30ml) for £4.95 here.
Honey and Wild Water Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing Water £10.00 – Cleansing waters and micellar waters is on the rise this year. If you haven’t already invested then try the Honey and Wild Water Mint 3-in-1 cleansing water. It is a light skin cleanser that dissolves dirt away and can also work as a toner that is gentle enough to be used around the eye area.

Honey, Borage and Echium Intensive Hand Repair £12.00 – Another great multipurpose product from Bee Good! Even though it’s named hand repair, it can be used on all your dry areas: hands, feet, knees, elbows and cuticles. This rich cream soothes and hydrates even the driest of skin! It is the perfect size to drop into your handbag or gym bag. To buy the Honey, Borage and Echium Intensive Hand Repair for £12.00, click here.
Honey and Wild Flax Daily Moisturiser £19.50 – The Honey and Wild Flax Daily Moisturiser does what is says on the packaging. It is so light that I had to remind myself that it’s meant to be used on the face and not the body. Arguably, you can probably find quite a few different facial moisturisers that look and feel the same, but are they all made with natural ingredients? The Honey and Wild Flax Daily Moisturiser contains Bee Good’s key ingredients honey and Propolis, as already mentioned above, to provide the anti-bacterial and anti- oxidant properties. The moisturiser also contains Vitamin E and British Camelina oil which is a great source of omega three fatty oils that protect the skin. To buy the Honey and Wild Flax Daily Moisturiser click here.
Vanilla and Honey Lip Balm £4.75 – This is a natural nourishing balm that conditions and repairs dry or chapped lips. Having won the Green Parent Natural beauty awards, the Vanilla and Honey Lip Balm has achieved a bit of a celebrity status. Made up with some of Bee Good’s key selling ingredients, this product is the perfect size tube to keep at home, in your bag and at work. For £4.75 and a multipack available, this purchase needs no justification. To buy the Vanilla and Honey Lip Balm, click here.
Honey and Crambe Daily Hand Cream £9.00 – If you have tried the intensive hand cream then you are definitely going to love this. A lighter version of the hand cream, this moisturising product can be used as little or as often as required. Either way, it is perfect for softening the hands and cuticles.

So with so many offered products you’re probably wondering which one would be my favourite. I think it’s going to be the Honey, Borage and Echium Intensive Hand Repair. I love a multipurpose product and being that, I already carry way too much in my handbag. A multi-use cream and a hand cream rolled into one is the perfect product for me. Although I haven’t had a chance to test out the new Honey and Camelina Facial Exfoliator yet so who knows, my favourite just might change!
