BRAND FOCUS. BEE GOOD.



A new little series is launching today on LLP, where I will share with you a new brand, well a brand that is certainly new to me. I will give you a little review of a few of their products, letting you know what I think and if their worth investing in. My first brand is a newbie to the block and certainly has been popping up all over the place, especially as it is a brand that is a firm favourite with beauty bloggers. Well we do have as huge say these days. 

With a husband and wife team flying the flag for British bees into the skincare world, their home grown approach of using honey, wax and propolis, all made in the UK by our bees, they have managed to create some truly beautiful products has been loved by pretty much everyone who has written about them. I am going to be another one! I have always believed in supporting small home grown British companies, as to me being part of a family business is the best career I could ever have. I love a home grown story and I admire Bee Good for delving into the skincare market and I think they have done a blooming good job.

Now to the three products you see above, two cleansers and an intensive hand cream. As a cleanser addict, I am always up for trying something new but they do usually disappoint and I always go back to my old favourites. However, as cleansers go Bee Good' Honey & Wild Water Mint 3 in 1 Cleansing Water (£10.00, 100ml) and Honey & Propolis 2 in 1 Cream Cleanser (£11.50 with muslin cloth, 100ml) c/o are impressive. 

As you may have seen a few weeks ago, my skincare routine is jam packed with products that I love and sometimes its hard to push one out to get one in hehe. As soon as I tried Bee Good's Honey & Propolis 2 in 1 Cream Cleanser, I loved it. Its texture is light, creamy and hydrating, which took away dirt, grime and dissolved my makeup with ease. It's scent isn't too strong, only lightly smelling of citrus. I only use a small amount on dry skin, massage in and then remove with a warm muslin cloth. As a simple cream cleanser this is perfect and it doesn't contain any mineral oil, parabens, colour or silicone's, meaning it is very gentle on the skin. It says it is suitable for all skin types and for my combination/sensitive skin, it was just perfect. With skin loving ingredients such as Crambe seed oil which is a great for hydrating the skin and of course British honey, which is nourishing and helps give you a super soft face, these products are certainly baby butt complexion helpers!

The other rather fabulous cleanser in their collection is their Honey & Wild Water Mint 3 in 1 Cleansing WaterThis cleanser is refreshing and easy to use. Its a water based cleanser, so I would probably use it for a first cleanse, as it dissolves make up and takes away dirt and grime. I do like to do a second cleanse of the evenings and unfortunately this isn't quite enough of a cleanse on its own for me, especially it also being a 3-in-1 so supposedly you don't then have to tone. However if you know me, I am a toning queen and I have to use my Pixi Glow Tonic as well as a hydrating toner. I do think this product is lovely for on the go and to remove makeup quickly but I would always tone after cleansing even if a product says it includes a toner. Thats just me folks.

Finally is my hero product from the collection so far and it is their Bee Good Honey, Borage & Echium Intensive Hand Repair cream (£12.00, 50ml) c/o for very dry hands. As you probably know, I am a florist by day and you work with your hands 247. Its painful, tough and very glamorous hehe. I suffer with such sore hands when work is at it's peek in the Summer months (aka now) and I have to say this cream has been amazing to come home too. As I suffer with OCD, I have to get my hands clean hands when I come home. That means a whole lotta scrubbing to keep them in shape. With nice manicured nails failing within minutes, when I come home, I love to cover my hands in this cream and allow it to soak in. You can of course use this cream on dry elbows, ankles etc so it's multi-purpose too. With one of the richest sources of essential fatty acids - Borage oil, this cream sooths, repairs and softens hands that need some much deserved TLC.

So would I recommend Bee Good? Yes I most certainly would. Brands like Bee Good are so important to have in the UK and I will forever be wishing them well when they branch out and hopefully take our British bees honey overseas. I also love the fact that even being a small home grown brand they donate a proportion of their profits to support the British Beekeeping Association and the UK Bee Farmers Association. Good on ya Bee Good! Check out their lovely website and give their products a try, I'm pretty sure anyone would love their creamy cleanser.

Hugs & Kisses,
Becki xox
