Rachel's Plan Bee: Body & Facial Oils

I spotted Rachel's Plan Bee Body Oil over on Julie's blog and knew I had to have it! By the way do pop over to Julie's blog it's a great read and I always see products I want!

Rachel first created a lotion bar for her son before launching Rachel's Plan Bee. All products are made with natural oils, butters, beeswax, with gentle scents and absorb easily, nourish and soothe the skin.  Handcrafted in small batches with love.  Her son is "still the centrepiece of this endeavour: my very best product tester and certainly my biggest fan".

The products contain no parabens, petrochemicals, artificial colours and fragrances, phthalates or gluten. Packaging is recyclable (and pretty!).



The Body Oil ($24 - 112ml) is one of the nicest I have ever used! It smells gorgeous and super nourishes the skin.  This is a product I want forever in my stash!  It contains Apricot Kernal Oil, Meadowfoam Seed Oil and Cranberry Seed Oil and is scented with a delicious blend of Vanilla and Orange Peel Oils.

Customers loved the scent of the face oil and asked Rachel to create a body version.

And this is so true! "will have you reaching for your bottle between bath times to remind you of life's simple pleasures".

To use: shake the bottle and massage 1-2 pumps onto damp skin to seal in moisture. It can also be added to your bath, as a massage oil and before shaving.  Love!


The Facial Oil ($20 - 30ml) is a botanical blend of skin loving oils including Apricot Kernal, Squalane, Grapeseed, Vitamin E, Safflower, Cranberry Seed along with Vanilla Planifolia and Orange Peel Oils.

It absorbs quickly and is more suited to Normal to Dry skin types (I'm normally combination but in winter time my skin is more dry).  I find my skin only needs a drop.  The oil feels really lovely on the skin. A fuller review to follow.

To use: shake the bottle before using and apply 2-3 drops to cleansed skin both morning and evening.  There are approximately 200 applications per bottle. 

Rachel very kindly popped in a sample of her Bee Cream which is a rich and nourishing moisturiser perfect for dry skin areas, cuticles and hands. 


Next time along with the body oil I'll be adding Lotion BarBody Butter and Body Polish if fact I want the whole shop!
