Baby, it’s cold outside! While the shimmering snowy landscape reminds me that Spring is far away and the bees are peacefully hibernating in their hives, we can still enjoy their most precious gifts – honey, beeswax, propolis, and royal jelly. There are many beauty uses for these little nature’s miracles, but being natural humectants their moisturizing properties are worth their weight in gold during the winter months.
Here are some of the best beauty products with honey, beeswax, propolis, and royal jelly as the star ingredients I tried and loved that I thought you might enjoy as well!
FarmHouse Fresh Honey Heel Glaze [$25 for 3oz] comes in a picture-perfect glass jar that won’t look out of place among your jars of real honey on the shelf. This golden sticky moisturizing serum was designed to specifically target cracked heels and dry feet, making them appear instantly pedicured. Massage a thin amount for an instant boost of moisture or slather on a generous layer, wrap your feet in cozy dark socks to prevent staining, and leave on overnight to wake up with baby-smooth skin. Honey Heel Glaze comes with a brush that makes the process extra fun and ensures that you don’t waste any product.
Our favorite lip balm is now even more convenient! Burt’s Bees Squeezable Beeswax Lip Balm [$3.99 for 0.35oz] features the same 100% natural formula we all love, but without the hassle of twisting it up every time, and trying to close the lid without accidentally slicing off the tip of the stick. Yeah, I know that lip balms are not exactly rocket science, but if something will make my life even a tiny bit easier I’m all up for it!
When my hands are feeling extra dry and irritated, few products helps as well as Burt’s Bees Ultimate Care Hand Cream [$12.99 for 3.2oz]. Infused with baobab oil, beeswax, watermelon seed oil, and dozens of nourishing natural butters and botanical extracts, this ultra rich lotion sinks into every dry crack and patch. This moisture actually lasts for hours, so I generally never need to reapply between hand washes. This is seriously a must-have!
And finally, Savannah Bee Royal Jelly Body Butter [$25 for 6.7oz] that I discovered just a few weeks ago. It comes in a beautiful giftable box, and even the jar itself looks like a tiny pot of honey. Inside the jar you’ll find one of the most nourishing body butters that graced my snow-kissed skin, and I bet if you try it you’ll love it as much as I do! This ultra-rich cream sinks into the skin and immediately soothes any irritation and painful dry spots that may have appeared as a result of dryness.
