Honey goodness for your face: Bee Good Youth Enhancing Hydrate, Smooth & Prime Serum

bee_god_serum_review - 1Aside of coconut, honey is my other obsession in life. I love the taste, the smell and even the texture of honey so was delighted to try the lovely .

A honey serum, is for me, a marriage made in heaven as serums are another obsession of mine.

This one has a thicker consistency than your average serum, but is quite light in texture. Once applied is quickly absorbed by the skin.

bee_god_serum_review - 3It has a very fresh smell and feels great on the skin – not sticky or heavy.

Applied at night, skin feels nourished and happy in the morning, although alone I don’t think is enough; I combine with an oil or lighter cream in my arsenal.

For day, it is pretty good; because it is quite light it behaves well under makeup, living up to its “primer” name, although I don’t feel it enhances durability.

It contains peptides, which stimulate collagen production, hydrating British honey, antioxidant-rich propolis and firming blackcurrant seed oil and larch extract, which all combine aim to smooth the skin and help with ageing signs.

It is suitable for vegetarians.

bee_god_serum_review - 2Bee Good is one of those companies you can’t help but fall in love with; they use British honey and botanicals, have an eco conscience, are free from synthetic colours, mineral oil, silicone, SLS and SLES or parabens, don’t test on animals and look after their bees, support the countryside and bee keeping initiatives. They are good ones; overall a lovely company brimming with amazing products.

The Bee Good Serum costs £25 and is available from Waitrose, which has a great beauty range including Bee Good.

Discovering beauty at Waitrose

IMG_5609Waitrose is one of my favourite supermarkets. What I didn’t know was how extensive their beauty range is – from the sheer amount and quality of the brands. Some I knew well, others I discovered on the night.

As well as the likes of Balance Me, Bee Good, Richard Ward, Neal’s Yard and Crabtree & Evelyn, Waitrose has its own range, with the quality you’d expect from the brand.

IMG_5603-0The fantastic Waitrose Heritage Collection has just launched with new fragrances and has hand washes, hand and body lotions, hand creams, body washes, bath washes and body butters.

My favourite blend is the Orchid & Honeysuckle version, which has the warm smell I look for in perfumes, body, bath and shower products.

Not only they feel great on the skin, have great fragrances and all the properties we expect from them, the packaging is also rather lovely.

They also have great gift packages, perfect for small gifts and stocking fillers.

IMG_5593-0Among the brands I discovered, Gisela Graham – my Christmas tree is laden with her decorations, but I had no idea she did beauty. Pretty as expected.

IMG_5612-0BRYT skincare has cleanser, serums and moisturisers. Plus, their lovely colourful packaging so caught my eye straight away.

IMG_5615-1Humble also impressed me with their honey based range with strong frankincense notes.

 

The event was held at the beautiful Waitrose Cookery School in London King’s Cross, which I had no idea existed, let alone that it was that fabulous.

Apart from sampling some of the amazing food devised by their chefs, I found out their classes are very affordable and cover a range of cuisines. And they do gift vouchers (hello, Christmas!).

So next time you are doing your food shopping, you might want to add one or two quality beauty products in there!

And that is just a small samples of what’s available. Waitrose beauty products are available in stores and online.
