Bee Good are a new brand of British made skincare. The idea is that you can give your skin some serious TLC whilst helping to save our British bees, by using products made using their honey. Their products harness the skincare benefits of British honey, propolis and beeswax.
Bee Good was born in 2008 by husband and wife team, Simon and Caroline. As an experienced beekeeper for over 10 years, Simon keeps a number of hives in old orchards surrounding his home in rural Hampshire. It was Caroline’s interest in harnessing the excess honey and beeswax to create natural skincare products which led to the first Bee Good skincare products: a lip balm and a hand cream. To start with all the products were made in Caroline’s kitchen using centuries-old recipes and were sold at local farmer’s markets.
I got to try out Bee Good’s Honey & Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser. This cleanser provides a great way of gently yet effectively cleansing your skin every single day. I’ve used similar products, where you cleanse with a creamy cleanser and then wipe away with a muslin cloth that’s been dampened with warm water, before. It’s a really great way of getting your skin deep down clean every day. What sets Bee Good’s product apart is the creaminess of the cleanser and the lovely scent. It’s a richer, more gentle, blend that I think would be good for drier or older skins or those that simply need a little extra care and attention.
