Review - BeeYouTiful Facial Bar and Lip Balm

Milk and Honey Facial Bar and B.A.L.M Lip Moisturizer
Cost: $10.00 (Facial Bar)
How often do we pamper ourselves?  If you’re like me, not often.  There just isn’t enough time or money to spend on the Mom part of the family.  That’s not to say I don’t have everything I need, but it is nice every now and then to indulge.
Imagine how happy I was to find out I got to review  BeeYouTiful products!  There were a wide range of options for what we’d receive.  I was just excited to review something for me!  J 

When the package came, it had a 4.25oz Milk and Honey Facial Bar and B.A.L.M All Natural Lip Moisturizer.  The lip moisturizer immediately went into my purse.  We live in the South where it is humid seventy-five percent of the time – we are currently in the other twenty-five percent and my skin is drying out.  It does every winter.  The lip balm is a perfect go-to for keeping my lips from chapping and peeling.
I thought the facial bar was just adorable.  It’s shaped like a bee hive with little bees on it.  They sent it to me in a bubble envelope, so some of it got dented.  If it were a gift, I would not have wanted it to be dented because it is just so cute.

The scent of the bar is hard to describe.  It is made from honey and goats milk.  It’s a very earthy scent.  Not at all unpleasing.  It’s not perfumey or artificially floral/fruity like a lot of body washes are these days.  I found it to be a refreshing change.  The key though is my husband.  He says he has a “Bob Hope nose” meaning he is very sensitive to different smells.  He usually picks out my shampoos, colognes, etc. so that he is comfortable with the odor.  He hasn’t said a word since I started bathing with the Milk and Honey Facial Bar so I can definitely say it is pleasing and very mild.
Note I said “bathing” above.  While it is a facial bar, it is also winter and I’m drying out head to toe.  The web site notes:

Two natural treasures in one bar of soap help repair sores, fight acne, soothe chapping, and balance uneven or oily skin. Bee products—honey, propolis, pollen and wax—meet goat milk to clean up the toughest skin problems you can muster.
Honey cleanses dirt and impurities while smoothing wrinkles by increasing your skin’s elasticity. Propolis—a mixture of the essential oils, pollen, and wax bees harvest from plants—nourishes dry, itchy skin. Pollen, rich in enzymes and vitamins, contains the complete family of amino acids. It promotes new skin cell growth while scrubbing away built-up dead cells without stripping the skin of its natural protection. Milk & Honey’s beeswax base is the all-natural “carrier” for other ingredients that leaves your skin feeling soft and clean.

Raw goat milk is rich in enzymes beneficial to your skin, and five natural, skin-replenishing oils balance and moisturize. This abundance of revitalizing components is topped off with a touch of sweet orange essential oil for an agreeable, bright aroma.”
Why should only my face get these wonderful benefits?  I do believe my skin feels softer and a lot less itchy since I’ve started using the bar every morning.  Yay!

This review turned out to be exactly what I selfishly hoped it would – a little indulgence for me.  It has been fun trying out the Milk and Honey Facial Bar and the B.A.L.M lip moisturizer.  My skin feels better, and I feel just a little bit pampered.
I love the BeeYouTiful web site – it’s so inviting with several products aimed at keeping yourself healthy and happy.  Personally, I’m looking forward to reading the reviews from other crew members who received different products from  BeeYouTiful.  I’m excited to hear what they received and what they thought of their products.

*** I received these products free as a member of the TOS Crew in exchange for my honest review.
