Good Things Manuka Honey Daily Moisturiser Review
This daily moisturiser is part of the new Manuka Honey range from Good Things. The range also includes a creamy cleanser (which I really want to try), a radiance face mask and a refining scrub.
Good Things say
This lightweight, youth-protecting formula combines the intense moisturising properties of royal jelly and beeswax to provide deep hydration to skin. With echinacea extract to promote skin longevity, leaving skin feeling nourished and looking renewed. Bee venom helps boost collagen levels, while propolis and manuka honey add an antibacterial element. Added sunscreens provide daily protection leading to firmer, clearer, visibly healthier looking skin.
First thing to note is that it should not be used by people allergic to bee and wasp stings.
This moisturiser for the face smells good enough to eat. It has a delicious sweet honey scent but it isn't overpowering just really, really pleasant. The cream feels thick coming being dispensed from the tube but is light and absorbs instantly. You may think that the inclusion of honey in the ingredients would leave skin with a sticky or tacky residue but it doesn't.
It leaves skin feeling super soft, bright and glowy. A good moisturiser for my normal/combination skin and such excellent value makes it hard to resist.
The only thing I would say is that in the description it mentions added sunscreens providing protection but gives no indication of what level this is. In any case, I use a separate facial sunscreen!
Good Things is free from Parabens, Mineral Oils, and Sodium Laureth Sulfate.
