Bee Good Honey, Borage & Echium Intensive Hand Repair 50ml




I was recently sent Bee Good Honey, Borage & Echium Intensive Hand Repair* (50ml - £12) to try and review.  Bee Good was founded by husband and wife team in 2008, with Simon being an experienced beekeeper and Caroline keen to make natural skincare.

Finest ingredients are used - bee ingredients (some sourced from fellow British beekeepers), plant oils and natural active botanicals sourced in Britain. There are no synthetic colours, mineral oil, silicones, SLS, SLES and parabens used and no animal testing.  The products are BUAV certified.

Bee Good donate a share of profits to beekeeping causes and apprenticeship and education of young beekeepers.  Each purchase helps to protect British bees.  A nice touch I think is the label which contains wildflower seeds to plant in your garden which will grow and be a source of nectar for the honeybees in your garden.


The hand cream is really rich, intensive and nurturing so it is great for dry hands (feet, elbows, knees too!).  It contains moisturising British Wild flower honey, Echium oil to replenish the skin, Cocoa & Shea Butter to deeply moisturise, antioxidant Vitamin E, strengthening Borage and Antibacterial British Propolis.  It has a light slightly herbal floral scent which I love! To use: massage into the skin as often as needed for beautifully soft and moisturised hands.

I am super excited to be able to try Honey & Wild Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing Water 100ml (worth £10) when my BBB Beauty Box III (£19.95 for 15 items with free P&P) arrives!

  7. Thanks for the great review!
    The Intensive Repair Salve is very rich and thick, hence the need for the pump, its also very practical for use after gardening or other activities as we found it's a lot less fiddly than a tube.

    As active beekeepers, we are well aware of the need to look after our little friends and if you look at our blog over the next couple of weeks, we will explain in more detail exactly how we are supporting British bees and the next generation of beekeepers...

    We're running a few trials with the seeded paper and it does take about 3-4 weeks for the seeds to germinate, so a little patience is required! I've posted some pictures on our Twitter feed and will also blog about the results later.

    Thanks again,

    Simon
