Bee Inspired Fab Face Cream – Bergamot, Sandalwood and Pine – 50ml (£18.00)

Bee Inspired are a small, natural skincare company, based in Surrey in the UK.  They are also Beekeepers with over 20 years experience. They harvest beeswax and honey from their own hives and use it in their natural skincare products. This is their ‘fab face cream’, which comes in an easy to use airless pump dispenser.

The main and base ingredients in the moisturiser are emulsifying wax NF, which provides a thick, glossy texture and helps to combine the oils. Coco butter, which is extracted from the cocoa bean and is used to make chocolate. It has a velvety texture and is highly moisturising. Then we find three hydrating and soothing oils; sweet almond, rice bran and castor oil.

Two key ingredients in this moisturiser are homemade beeswax and honey, both extracted from their own hives.  In the photograph below, you can see three of their actual bee hives.  The beeswax provides the skin with a natural protective barrier, sealing in moisture. Whilst honey is full of antioxidants and is naturally antibacterial, so great to help keep the skin healthy and in good condition.

Finally in the ingredients list we find vegetable based glycerin and essential oils of bergamot, sandalwood and pine needle. These three essential oils combine to create a subtle woody, warm aroma, making it popular with both men and women looking for a moisturiser without a floral fragrance.

One pump delivers the perfect amount to fully moisturise your entire face, making this 50ml pot last a long time.  The texture is quite waxy, which is different to most other cream moisturisers. The cream quickly breaks down when smoothed into the skin, making it an easy to use product.  Ideal as a day time moisturiser, thanks to the light consistency and non-greasy finish.

Ingredients: Aqua, Cetearyl Alcohol and Polysorbate 60 (emulsifying wax NF), Theobroma Cacao, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis, oryza Sativa, Ricinus Communis, Beeswax, Honey, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Citrus Bergamia Oil, Santalum Album Oil, Pinus Sylvestris Oil contains naturally Linalool + Limonene
