When I saw BeeCeuticals Organic line of products at Whole Foods, my first thought was that it was a bad, cross-marketing promotion with the Jerry Seinfeld Bee Movie. (Not to be an instigator, but someone should be suing someone, because those bees look an awful lot a like.)
It's creeping me out that all animated bees are suddenly starting to look like Seinfeld.
My second thought was, “using honey, that's Burt’s Bees' idea”. Then I realized how ridiculous that was. Honey is an amazing skincare product and the more products out there touting its benefits the better.
So I kind of feel like plugging this product, because I really liked it and I always like to root for the underdog (and in my spare time instigate lawsuits).
The ingredients are really nice: Japanese Green Tea, Organic Grape Seed Extract, Shea Butter for ultra-moisture, Jojoba to replace the skin’s natural wax esters, Macadamia Seed Oil for the fatty acids, Organic Chamomile to soothe, and Organic Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme, because apparently their fans of Simon and Garfunkel, Evening Primrose Oil to soften, Royal Jelly to nourish, Propolis to heal, Vitamins A, C and E and of course organic honey (a humectant that helps attract and retain moisture).
This moisturizer is rich and light at the same time. It’s not greasy-feeling at all, but keeps skin protected from the cold, dry winter air. I love that their claim: “designed to mimic and strengthen the protective lipid barriers of the skin” is exactly how I would describe it (except I’d use 3rd grader words).
This cream is almost like an ever-so-thin layer of wax. Like how some apples have that waxy coating to keep them from dehydrating and looking old. This kind of does that for your face (although on a much more subtle level).
I feel like wearing BeeCeutical's Queen for a Day Cream, I could climb Everest without losing my nose to frostbite. If that’s not a rave review, I don’t know what is.
They probably think that bee is cute, but it's going to give me nightmares.
Has anyone else ever tried this brand?
