Simply Bee Men’s Moisturising Lotion – 200ml (£12.80)
Attention my ingredient purist friends among you. Firstly, ignore the word “Men’s” and concentrate your eyes on ‘moisturising lotion’.
The ingredients in this product from Simply Bee are as minimalist as they come. 100% natural, no preservatives, no colourings, perfumes or synthetics. Instead we find a mix of water, shea butter, beeswax, propolis, honey and lavender essential oil. The only additional ingredient in the bottle is Polysorbate 60, which is a vegetable emulsifying wax that helps combine all the ingredients together.
The result is a white coloured, light fluffy textured cream (or lotion) which quickly absorbs into the skin. Don’t expect to smell lavender, but the strong pleasant honey mix fragrance quickly dispersed when applied onto the skin.
The product is advertised simplybee’s website as a mens moisturisng lotion, but I preferred to use it as an aftersun, hand cream and body lotion. I took this away with me on holiday and used it all over my body, shoulders and even my head, as a light, non-clogging, pleasant smelling body cream.
