I’ve been obsessed with cream/balm cleansers for quite some time now. In my quest to find the perfect cleanser, I’ve been trying out various ones. Today’s cream cleanser is from Bee Good. I’ve mentioned in a previous post (here) how much I adored their philosophy. The brand’s story and philosophy is something I feel I can relate to.
Bee Good’s Honey & Propolis 2 in 1 Cream Cleanser*, £11.50 is a rich, creamy cleanser. It comes with a muslin cloth and is packaged in a handy tube. I don’t tend to use the muslin cloth, I use my Primark flannels.
I usually use a 20p sized blob and massage all over my face then wipe away with a flannel. It dissolves all my makeup including all my eye makeup. The texture of the cleanser is really creamy; I’d say it’s almost balmy so it gives enough of a ‘slip’ to give yourself a proper face massage. The fragrance is really subtle and really nice. It smells better than the Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish in my opinion (review here).
The active ingredients in the cleanser are honey and propolis. Honey is known for its skincare benefits. It’s a natural antioxidant protects the skin from external damage. It also moisturises leaving the skin soft. Propolis is a new ingredient for me, so I did a little research. It’s a resin like substance gathered by bees. It has a long history if medicinal use due to its antibacterial and antifungal properties. Like honey, it’s also an antioxidant and helps to heal wounds. Tiny little warning, I’ve read that Propolis can cause allergic reactions, so you might want to test it out before you fully use it. I haven’t had any issues whatsoever (I suffer from really bad hayfever) but that doesn’t mean to say it’ll be the same for everyone! Just to note, it is marketed as suitable for all skin types. They do not test on animals and their products do not use synthetic colours, mineral oil, silicone, SLS and SLES or parabens.
I’ve been using this cleanser for around four weeks now and I really like it! It completely removes all my makeup at the end of the day. I’ve also used it in the mornings when my skin has felt dry, and it gently took off the dry, flaky skin. It’s such a lovely creamy/balmy texture, sometimes I just want to keep massaging it on my skin because it just feels so nice. I probably still have about half the 100 ml tube left so it lasts a good while too.
If you’re after a nice cream cleanser that cleanses and looks after your skin, you need to give this a go! Seriously, I’m so so impressed by Bee Good – I might just go and live in their bee farm! Although I won’t have to as the full Bee Good range will be available in Waitrose from 29th August! Such exciting news for such a great brand! Make sure you go and have a play with the range in store!
