Honeybee Gardens Review*

What they say: Honeybee Gardens was created in 1995 by author and herbalist Melissa J. Buckley. Years of herbal study prompted Ms. Buckley to create natural personal care products for her and her family. What began as kitchen cosmetics soon turned into a profitable enterprise. You will find our products in health food stores, pharmacies, on-line stores, herb shops, specialty and gift stores worldwide. Honeybee Gardens products are created entirely of natural ingredients that you can actually pronounce! We reuse and recycle as much as possible and perhaps most importantly, we DO NOT test ANY of our products on animals, and are PETA certified. All of our products have also been reviewed by the Environmental Working Group, and all have a score of 2 or lower. We are also Feingold certified.

I got one of Honeybee Garden’s Truly Natural Lipsticks to try out, the shade is San Francisco and lets start my review of it! I have to start off by saying THIS SHADE IS BEAUTIFUL! It is the perfect balance between a frosted and shimmer lipstick and really works! I would consider the color to be a perfectly rose shimmery lipstick. And when I say shimmery don’t get scared because its actually beautiful and not overwhelming like some shimmery lipsticks are. It lasts a pretty good amount of time on my lips even while eating and drinking it lasted well and even after washing it off I still had a hint of color and shimmer left on my lips. Did I mention it contains organic ingredients, is gluten free and vegan? Well it is and that’s a major plus in my book since I want to try more organic and natural makeup!
If you are in the market for a new lipstick, which I always am I would highly recommend checking out the Honeybee Gardens Truly Natural Lipstick and of course while you are their check out the rest of the line as well!

And of course follow them on

Elizabeth's Daughter Review*

What they say: Elizabeth's Daughter was created to provide beautiful, simple and effective skincare for young girls. It was born out of the frustration of trying to find products that were not harmful or astringent and fitted into busy young lives.
Having suffered with skin problems for many years and struggled to find products that suited my own skin, I was particularly concerned about my daughter's skin. I wanted her to learn from my own experience and understand the importance of looking after her skin, not only from the outside but from the inside too.
The range was developed in conjunction with a leading authority in botanical extracts and natural products. Every Elizabeth's Daughter product has its own story to tell, with each natural ingredient selected for its unique health and well-being properties.

Firstly the story really sells me on these two products, they sent me The Purifying Mask and The Daily Moisturizer. The story behind it all is very sincere and makes me love these products even more.

So let me tell you about The Purifying Mask! This is a deep cleansing mask to purify skin and eliminate toxins and I have to say I don’t have the best skin and I tend to have a new pimple or three every week and this was the best mask for troubled skin I’ve ever tried. I also really love that it doesn’t completely dry down to the point where if you even speak some masks will crack on you. That was a winner in my book, it also smells fresh, is a normal color and it works! Some masks that I have previously tried are vibrantly colored and when you wash them off they get your towels all kinds of colored and this one like I said is a normal nude color so I didn’t have to worry about that! When I put it on I really felt like it was working! It’s a short mask so its only 3 minutes so you can always put it on before a shower, let it do its magic and you’re completely done and purified!

Now onto The Daily Moisturizer! Another amazing product! I actually have it on right now! It’s a body and facial moisturizer that has an SPF of 15 in it so you can wear it every single day! It moisturizes and gives you a sun protectant which in my book every moisturizer should have SPF in it! This is another product that REALLY works! It goes on like a lighter moisturizer but works like a thicker moisturizer without feeling thick and keeps wherever you apply it feeling nice and fresh all day. Its not sticky, doesn’t have a strong scent and dries quickly so again, all wins for me! I also love that you can use this on your entire body, like I can use it on my face before bed but I can also help that dry patch I still have on my hand from the winter!

Both of these products have become staples in my skincare routine and I highly recommend you check them out and see what products you may like from them. I only tested out two but I cant imagine any of their products being bad! They are also based out of the UK but they do ship to the US so check them out!
