may (or may not) know that I have been having a few problems with my skin
lately, it is not in a good way at the moment and doesn’t resemble
that of a woman knocking on 30, but more of a hormonal teenager. Due to
what caused these breakouts (Yes, that would be you Liz Earle and your Hot
Cloth Cleanser) I was a little anxious to try out the Bee Good Honey and Propolis
2-in-1 Cream Cleanser (11.50)*.
But I was brave and I am so glad I was… A little background info for you all,
as I know you love my little rambling stories… I tried the Liz Earle Cleanse
& Polish a few months back and after 3 weeks use my skin was a terrible
mess, big cystic style spots under my skin mess (sexy, I know), so I backed off
using it and a few other products to get my skin under control, a few months
later I reintroduced it to my routine, and guess what? Yes, you guessed it, I
broke out something rotten again. Now I know everyone goes on about a ‘purging’
stage, but I am loath to believe that – if my skin doesn’t like
something it is going to let me know, and I assume it’s way
of chatting to me is by lovely big mole hills on my face. And as the Bee Good Honey and Propolis
2-in-1 Cream Cleanser is of the same vein as the C&P I was scared
to say the least, but I am pleasantly surprised by this product….
up Bee Good are an amazing UK brand that pride itself on producing organic Skin
Care products that are free from parabens, SLS, synthetic colours, mineral oil
and silicones, not to mention they support British Bees (who we should all know
need all the support they can get). The amazing people behind the brand were
actually Bee Keepers once upon a time and used the honey to incorporate into
Skin Care products that they could sell locally in Hampshire. A few years later
and they are producing some amazing products whilst still keeping their brand
morals and also educating and funding young British Bee Keepers.
I received my parcel I was over the moon, I mean look at the gorgeous packaging
and the little Bee Good branded biscuits it came with. LOVE. The product
packaging is also gorgeous; it looks clean, simple and chic. The product box
contains a 100ml tube of 3 in 1 cleanser and also a muslin cloth to help
exfoliate and remove the cleanser.
cleanser is aimed at, and suitable for, all skin types and contains British
Wild Flower Honey, British Propolis Extract and Rapeseed Oil, all of which
combine to make a gorgeous creamy cleanser with a lovely natural subtle scent.
After a week of using this once a day, gently massaging it into my skin then
removing with the Muslin cloth, I noticed my skin seemed to feel more nourished
and didn’t feel at all ‘tight’ or ‘stripped’ after using it. At first I did
notice a few extra break out areas joining in the already messy party my face
was, but they were nowhere near the likes of the ones from when I used the
Cleanse & Polish, so I persevered for a another week and my skin is finally
mending; I am having no more break outs and the ones that were there previously
are FINALLY clearing up. Hallelujah. At present I am still only using this once
a day and using an alternative cleanser on an evening that contains Salicylic Acid
to try to further get my skin under control, but once it has calmed down I am
going to be using the Bee
Good Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser twice a day every
day. I have my eye on their cleansing water next.
have your experiences been with cleansers like this? Or have you tired this
one? I am interested to know your reactions to them.
