Confessions of a Skincare Addict
It’s time to speak my truth - the only reason I started working for Savannah Bee Company was for the Body Care products.
As much as I love honey, my first love was lotion. Savannah Bee Company Beauty Products have often been overshadowed by all the delicious honey, but I think they deserve some time in the spotlight. So please, come along and indulge my testimonial for the holistic and effective, diverse and addictive, Savannah Bee Company Beauty Products.
I started my journey with Savannah Bee because of one thing - Chamomile and Myrrh Royal Jelly Body Butter. I had received it as a gift and became obsessed. As a fan of mild scents and heavy moisture, this took its place as the cherry on top of my nighttime routine. But instead of my body, I used it on my face as an intensive moisturizer. It repaired and brightened my skin for the morning and I still swear by it 5 years later.
However, upon accepting a position in one of our retail stores, I realized that not only did Savannah Bee Co. carry Body Care, BUT ALSO a small selection of skin care. I have always had trouble altering my strict skincare routine, and as other skincare junkies know, it’s a little scary to introduce something new when it comes to your face. But after I started with the company, I felt compelled to try everything, skincare included.
Skin Care that Cares
Savannah Bee’s skincare line consists of only two products, but together they’re a super duo. The Royal Jelly Nighttime Rejuvenation Treatment is made exactly for what I was using the Body Butter for - deep nighttime hydration and repair. This lighter-than-air lotion promises diminished age lines, quick absorption, and hydration, but what I also found was plumper, brighter, healthier skin with a noticeable smoothness I wasn’t expecting.
The magic behind this treatment are the hive ingredients: antibacterial propolis, nourishing honey, and protein rich royal jelly. Paired with apple extract that is high in antioxidants, watermelon extract that protects against UV damage, and olive oil that’s high in vitamin E, this treatment is the queen of nighttime nourishment. Use it before bed, or in the morning for daily moisture or as a primer before makeup, and a small amount goes a long way.
The other half of our super duo may be my all-time favorite product (don’t tell the body butter). The first time I used the Charcoal Facial Cleanser I saw immediate results. Charcoal has been trending as a cure-all for skin exfoliation and health in the last few years, and it’s with good reason. The power of charcoal, plus volcanic ash and kaolin clay, act as an exfoliant and helps smooth skin, while the honey and propolis act as an antibacterial, preventing blemishes. Something I didn’t expect was a reduction in pore size and a calming effect on my skin that evened its tone. It cleanses, exfoliates, hydrates, protects and simply beautifies. Just a heads up for those with dryer skin, you only need to use it a few times a week - it works like a face mask. While you’re washing, massage a dime-sized amount onto your face and leave it on for at least a minute to draw out dirt and oil from pores.
There are so many things to love about Savannah Bee Company Beauty Products, but above all, it’s that they support health and wellness, for us and for our favorite little creatures, the honeybees. Without them, I wouldn’t look and feel as good as I do.
P.S. Find your own ways to use our products for your skin! If you crave an even more natural product and you're feeling sticky, the Saw Palmetto honey moonlights as a luxurious (and delicious) antioxidant face mask.
