Today is a little pot of gold; literally. It is the hydrating beauty balm from [M]botanicals.
These are not the sort of products I would find in a supermarket or every day beauty store. The packaging whilst fairly simplistic speaks for the product inside. It looks expensive, it also looks very old fashioned and the type of thing found in a botanical factory. No gimmicks on the label and no big promises. The product inside is all natural.
And yes it’s gold!
This does look like a product made with honey or from bees but it’s actually made with olive wax and coconut butter with an infusion of various essential oils. These oils include rose hip, evening primrose and borage.
It’s a solid oil type product when scooped in my fingers it feels oily, and slightly grainy. The fine grain particles obviously do a lot for exfoliating whilst the overall product doubles up as both a beauty and skin healing product.
Although it does feel a little greasy/oily when first applied, the product dries and absorbs remarkably fast leaving hardly any oily residue. It really helps with dry and itchy skin as my 9 year old daughter is finding out. It’s multiple natural properties can also help with facial lines and signs of aging and it can be used all over the body.
Now I did say before that this is not a cheap product. It does not look like one and certainly does not work like a cheap product. It costs £28.00 for a 60g pot.

I have been testing out another beauty mask. I love products that are made with all natural ingredients just like this one from Bee Good. Yes that’s spelt correctly too and as you can probably imagine – Bee good products contain honey.
British wildflower honey in beauty products attracts and locks in water, protecting against skin dehydration and creating a silky smooth film to plump and visibly improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The honey is just one of five natural ingredients in this beauty balm. The other four being – Supercharged plant oils (wheatgerm & camelina), natural waxes, Bisabolol and Propolis (from beehives).
This is a top to toe beauty balm meaning it is of benefit to many areas of the body and can even be used on the scalp and part of a hair treatment.
This beauty product arrived very well presented in its own gift box with a very upmarket style pot.
The balm itself is as you would expect yelllow/gold in appearance just like honey.
The texture is thick and appears a little waxy. When applied to my face it did feel ever so slightly greasy for a second or two but it did dry really fast. My hands did feel a little more greasy than my face and for some reason the product took a little longer to dry on my hands. It has a sweet honey sort of scent. It can be used as an overnight beauty balm and left on or as a quick exfoliater and washed off after five minutes.
As well as a beauty product it can also be used as relief for dry skin problems due to its natural ingredients.
It costs £39.95 but it is a fairly big pot and contains lots of product inside. It is really soothing to irritated skin and can even help with sunburn.
