Bee Good was created in 2008 by husband and wife team, Simon and Caroline. As an expert beekeeper, Simon keeps a number of beehives in old orchards surrounding his Hampshire home. It was Caroline’s interest in harnessing the excess honey and beeswax to create natural skincare products which led to the first award-winning products; a lip balm and a hand cream; made in Caroline’s kitchen using centuries-old recipes and sold at local Hampshire farmer’s markets.
Word spread, sales grew and the awards continued, so in 2013 Simon recruited a small team of skincare experts with similar beliefs and passion for natural skincare to build Bee Good into the award-winning, premium skincare brand that it is today.
Whilst our ambition is to grow Bee Good, we are proud of our roots and will always stay true to what makes us what we are – our British bees! As a champion of British bee-keeping, Simon focuses solely on actively promoting the security of our British bees. He teaches beekeeping and works closely with the British Beekeeper’s Association and the Bee Farmers Association.
Bee Good actively supports our British bees, not just with charitable donations, but by a programme of tangible support including the education of young beekeepers and the planting of wildflower meadows across the UK.
Katie got me the Bee Pampered Gift Set, which you can purchase here for £25.00
Tbhis set contains two lovely lip balms, Vanilla & Honey and Raspberry & White Chocolate, two hand creams – Honey & Crambe and Honey, Borage and Echium, some fabulous little honey chocolate buttons and a packet of Bee friendly seeds.
The first of the hand creams is an intensive hand repair, it comes in a handy pump dispenser container and is perfect for after I’ve removed my nail varnish as the polish remover tends to dry my fingers around my nails out a lot.
It smells requally nice and doesn’t leave my skin feeling too greasy which some hand creams can do.
The second hand cream is a daily hand cream – an ideal size for throwing in your hand bag and using whenever you feel you need to sooth and soften your hands.
Like the intensive cream, this daily one isn’t too greasy and leaves your hands feeling lovely and soft.
The lip balms are both wonderful! I think the Raspberry and White Chocolate is my favourite and I totally haven’t been applying it just to lick it off again…
Both lip balms are non sticky and perfect for soothing chapped winter lips. They are ideal for popping in a pocket or your purse and the squeezy tubes make for easy application. My feels feel softer and smoother after the first coat.
The packet of seeds and little bag of chocolate buttons are lovely little touches
The seeds are vital in helping to protect our bees and the little seed balls will attract the bees to your very own mini meadow once planted. The honey flavoured chocolate buttons are a delight and I’m not ashamed to say I scoffed them all very quickly.
I will definitely be treating myself to Bee Good’s other products in the very near future. I was really over the moon with this little gift box and I’d like to thank Katie again for the very special treat.
