If you’ve been following me around for quite some time now, you may or may not have picked up that I like my natural products. No fuss, nasties-free skincare: that’s just me. So when word got out that there was a new kid on the block that doesn’t test on animals, is nasties-free, natural, and affordable. Heck, why wouldn’t I try that?
BeeGood prides themselves on using British bee-ingredients with naturally active botanicals and potent British plant oils that are by no means harming the skin, nature or bees. They’ve got a small selection of products ranging from moisturisers to cleansers to lipcare, which all contain active ingredients —making them effective and skin-pleasing.
The Honey & Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser is a nice and thick cream, which to me smells like Tonic (the fizzy drink) —and I love it. Propolis has actually been used for centuries in folk medicine as it was proven to be anti-inflammatory and it protects, soothes and heals the skin. I’ve been using the cleanser twice a day for about a week now and I’ve noticed great improvements in my skin, which was a bit spotty and inflamed before I started using it. The cleanser has left my skin nourished and supple and I think my skin is actually less dehydrated than it was before —I’m pretty sure it’s the Honey, Propolis and Beeswax doing its job. And they’re doing a pretty good ‘un.
As a busy bee myself (excuse the pun), I’m always carrying around a hand cream as I suffer from very dry hands, even when it’s hot and humid out. The Honey & Crambe Daily Hand Cream smells very fresh and floral, yet not too overpowering. Aside from Honey and Beeswax, it also contains Vitamin E, which protects the skin from free radicals. Although it is very nourishing, it is super lightweight and sinks into the skin almost instantly, which is a big yes now it’s summer and sweaty palms are an accessory we all are rocking —whether you dare to admit it or not.
Normally I suck in recycling packaging and material, but BeeGood made something that could be regarded as a hassle into something fun and usefull for mankind. Okay, I may be stretching it a tad now, but hear me out. With each product a little note is included, which you then can tear up and plant in your garden (or in a pot on your balcony) so wild flowers can grow and become a nectar source for the bees. Now this, people, is what I call bloody brilliant.
Note: nasties-free products include products which don’t contain SLS/SLES, silicones, mineral oils, synthethic ingredients and parabens.
