The buzz about honey bee based products keeps getting stronger! A little while ago, I wrote about honey in skincare >>> and it proved to be a very popular read, so I just wanted to give a quick mention to British made Bee Good’s Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser. I’ve been using on and off for a few months and even though I feel a drier or mature skin type would benefit most from it, I have too have enjoyed it.
For my oily combination skin I use it on days I’ve gone sans make up and I want to give my face a quick wash before bed, concentrating more on moisture/hydration than exfoliation. The texture is very thick and creamy so its doesn’t dry or strip the skin leaving a tight feeling. It’s super moisturising and skin feels nourished and supple. I put this down not only to honey and bees wax but English Crambe Oil. Not one of the most popular oils I might add, but it’s an excellent addition for skincare items as it’s very light and doesn’t leave behind a greasy feeling or residue. Experts say that a layer on the skin, prevents water loss (TEWL – more on this later but for now here’s how Wiki explain it) as it forms a natural protective barrier.
To use, massage it into dry skin and then wet your hands for extra slip and give your face a good massage. I spend at about three to five minutes getting into all the nooks, crannies and pores. It comes with its own muslin cloth to remove, which is very helpful! I then use a hydrating spritz toner and a night cream or oil to lock in all that moisture into my skin. Like I say, great for dry or mature skin types.
