Having just won the Cosmetic Executive Women Awards 2015, honey-powered, independent, British brand ‘Bee Good’ have launched a new scrub, the Honey and Camelina Facial Exfoliator. Based in Hampshire the Bee Good’s new facial exfoliator uses pulverised lavender flowers as a mild exfoliating grain.
I have sensitive and blemish prone skin so exfoliating my face is a big part of my skin care routine. This formula promises to,
‘bring dull or congested skin back to life and lift away dead skin cells to reveal bee-autifully buffed, soft, smooth and radiant looking skin.’
The product is very creamy in texture and instantly refreshes the skin. Suitable for all skin types the key ingredients in the scrub are British Wild Flower Honey, British Propolis (extract), British Beeswax, British Camelina sativa seed oil, British Crambe seed oil, Wheatgerm oil and Milled Lavender flowers. As you can see from the list Bee Good aim to source within the UK where possible, fantastic for British suppliers, farmers and beekeepers.
The Bee Good Honey and Camelina Facial Exfoliator combines wild flower honey with British camelina that moisturises the skin, whilst using milled lavender flowers as a gentle yet effective exfoliant, without causing any skin irritation.Wheatgerm oil soothes the skin, helps dry skin and is naturally high in vitamin E, the Propolis extract contains antibacterial properties to aid problematic skin. It is also free from parabens, synthetic colours, mineral oil and silicone.
To use I have been applying a small amount to dry skin over my face and neck, avoid your eyes or any other delicate areas, then gently massaging in circular motions after wetting my hands in hot water. I then removed with warm water and a muslin cloth.
For me my skin felt instantly refreshed and my skin has been far brighter. My dead skin cells were buffed away leaving my skin smooth and energized. I have been using it three times a week but it is very gentle so could be used daily. My skin feels healthier and nourished and many of my blemishes have cleared up since using it. Whilst an effective exfoliant the Bee Good Honey and Camelina is in no way harsh, just what I need!
Could this be a potential contender for an Award next year? What do you think?
