It is packaged in a simple white plastic jar with blue and red text. A good shrink seal or protective clamshell is a good indicator that the product is legitimate. It closes tight but easy to open.
At room temperature it is solid, but when it comes in contact with your skin, it begins to change into an oily consistency (which is what it’s supposed to do). The color is light yellow; it also has a little Vaseline type texture. It doesn’t feel heavy on your skin, and it blends well.
It has this honeycomb smell. It’s not strong and overwhelming. I can’t smell the product when I put a thin layer on my face.
If you read beauty magazines and skincare blogs, there’s a pretty good chance you will see an article or a review dedicated to this product. Some claim its “magic,” and some argue it helped them with their acne problem. Made me a little skeptical.
So what’s with the hype right? Reviewers claimed that it healed their acne, cleared their pigmentation, helps with dehydrated skin also helped treat other skin problems. Really? Magic?
So let’s start by looking at the ingredients; Six ingredients, all natural – Olive Oil, Bees Wax, Honey, Bee Pollen, Royal Jelly, and Bee Propolis. I love that it’s all natural and I am also familiar with how most of the ingredients benefit your skin. If you’re not familiar then let me give you a brief info:
- Olive oil – its packed with anti-oxidants and hydrating squalene.
- Bees Wax – Has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, it also forms a protective wall locking moisture in.
- Honey – has anti-bacterial and anti-aging properties.
- Bee Pollen – a good source of vitamins, so it provides anti-aging benefits for your skin.
- Royal Jelly – it has minerals and enzymes that provides moisture to your skin on top of having anti-bacterial properties.
- Bee Propolis – has antiseptic and restorative capabilities.
All sounds good and very beneficial to your skin.
I have been using this cream for a month now and timed it so I can use and test it after doing an Acid peel.
This cream can be used in different ways, being an all-purpose skin cream. However, I only used them for four different times:
As a Moisturizer
I can say this is the best way to use this cream. A tip for keeping it fresh and uncontaminated is to use a small scooper or spatula. I have used spatulas from my other creams, that I didn’t throw away, I just cleaned them good. Get a small amount, rub it between your fingers or palms and gently apply it on your face. I like how it turns from cream to oil.
It feels light and gets absorbed quickly if you use the right amount of cream. Don’t overdo it; a little goes a long way. I like how after a few minutes, my face doesn’t look oily at all, but it feels hydrated. It kind of locks in the moisture and leaves a protective layer.
As I mentioned earlier, I used this cream as my moisturizer after doing an Acid Peel – and boy it did me wonders! When doing an acid peel, you have to stay away from toners, serums, oil, and moisturizers that contain retinols and exfoliators – so this is by far the perfect moisturizer for this process. It helped moisturize and protects my skin during the whole peeling time frame (took about four days). I bring it with me and use it throughout the day (together with my sunblock of course).
I also use this on my feet, elbows, and knees – areas that need to be moisturized. They don’t look as flaky and dry since I’ve used this cream.
As an Eye Cream
I used it morning and evening as part of my skincare routine. It didn’t reduce the puffiness and swelling around my eyes. However, it did hydrate it. The skin feels soft and smooth. I even applied concealer and foundation in the area to see how well it blends – and it did blend well; didn’t look flaky and cakey at all.
As a Lip Conditioner
I love using this cream on my lips. It helps prevent dryness, painful cracking and it works well with locking in moisture. I have this love-hate relationship with matte lipsticks, I like how they look, but the longer I wear them, the dryer my lips become, and I hate it. So I put this on before the matte lipstick and voila! Matte lipstick’s best friend!
To minimize the appearance of new scars
Ok, I used “minimize” because it will not make your scars disappear “magically”. This will do nothing with old scars, but it does help with new ones. How? Well, what it does, is it will help create a protective “barrier” that promotes better epithelialization – I learned this word from my husband.
Him being a wound care doctor, he knows a lot about wounds and scars. He said, and I quote ” Scars will always be scars. The best way to remove scars is through surgery. If you want to skip that, then you can lighten them, one way to do so, is when the wound is fresh, make sure not to get it infected as infections worsen scars; use barrier creams and moisturize, this will help promote better epithelialization which will minimize scar formation.” He also explained that this is true for small and superficial wounds and that chronic and deep wounds need much more than barrier creams. But I’m not going to go into details with that, as I lost him after the 50th medical terminology.
I cut my hand a week ago, followed my husband’s instructions on how to disinfect it and protect the wound. We do have a medical grade barrier cream at home, but instead of using that, I used this cream. And sure enough, it did work, my wound is healing well, and the scar isn’t even noticeable now.
This is a great moisturizer and a powerful one indeed, and I think people will get more from this product if they use it as such – a moisturizer.
Would I buy another tub? Yes, I would probably buy more. Does it heal acne and clears pigmentation? Maybe it does, but personally, I won’t use this product for that purpose. I believe healing acne and clearing pigmentation need more than just honey and bee pollen. It might help protect you from future breakouts, but chronic acne and hyperpigmentation need more treatment.
How about other skin issues? Maybe it does help with soothing irritations, as far as healing it, I don’t think it has that capability; but, I might be wrong, I haven’t tried it for that purpose though.
Is it worth the price? Yes, it is, for me at least; because I don’t only use them on my face, I use them on my knees, elbow, and feet as well. However, I will not be throwing away my other skincare products as this will not replace them and their uses.
Have you tried using this cream?
