If you are into natural living then you should definitely check out Beessential Natural Skin Care and Body Care Products. I recently received some products from Beessential.com for review purposes and I have to say I was very impressed.
Beessential products are made with gentle, mild cleansers and essential oils. They are Paraben and Formaldehyde free and that is good news to my ears. They are made with ingredients such as honey, hemp, aloe, beeswax, propolis, coconut and olive oils and extracts. Not only are the products made in small batches, but also they are all made in USA.
I have been trying their products for few days now. My experience has been nothing but positive. Their Honey Lip Balm was one of the first products I tried. These natural lip balms are made with a formula of beeswax, olive oil, shea and cupuacu butters. This lip balm goes on pretty smooth and stays on there. It is not sticky, heavy or glossy like other lip balms. It moisturizers the lip, and stays there for quite some time. I did not feel the need to re-apply for at least a couple of hours after the first application. Although the smell of the lip balm needs some getting use to, after a while you don’t even realize it is there.
The next product, which we all have been using as a family, is the Lavender with Bergamot Foaming Hand Wash. Like the other products, this foaming hand wash is made from lavender and bergamot extracts along with coconut, olive and hemp oils. My little one loves to play with hand soap. She likes trying new ones and that is the only reason I believe her hands are clean all the time. Well, I had to hide this one from her. I absolutely love this packaging. Even though it is not visible in the pictures, this is not your run of the mill bottle. It is big and comfortably fits about 16 fl.oz of liquid. The smell of lavender is the best. It was also not as drying as other hand soaps. I wash my hands a lot and having moisturized and hydrated skin is very important for me.
Talking about washing hands and feeling moisturized, after washing with the foaming hand soap, I used the Beessential Original Honey Hand and Body Cream with fresh cucumber and energizing green tea. This hand and body skin cream is made with honey, propolis, beeswax, shea butter and other silk proteins. The cream is thick but light, and has a mousse like consistency. A little bit of it goes a long way. It is quickly absorbed leaving the skin very moisturized. I also love the mild cucumber fragrance, which surprisingly is refreshing.
Lastly, I tried the Beessential Shampoo and Conditioner. Both of them are Sulfate-free and also do not have any parabens or harsh detergents. They are made from their botanical blends, which include honey, nettle, chamomile, and propolis extracts. I first tried this on my little one’s hair. The liquid shampoo is transparent and thick. On application, it lathered up really well (I don’t know why I was skeptical). It has a mild floral scent, which my little one liked a lot. After the shampoo was rinsed off, I applied the conditioner, which again was creamy and thick. After everything was said and done, her hair was soft, smooth and tangle free. She mentioned that her favorite thing was the sweet floral scent.
It all began with one beehive and today Beessential produces a whole line of natural products for skin and hair bragging proudly of its “Made in USA” sign. If you want to learn more visit Beesential.com. You can also connect with them over at:
