Bee Good Honey & Wild Water Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing Water

If there's one thing that's come out of my relationship with Katy (besides hopefully spending my life with my soulmate, of course) it's an obsession with bees. Katy's obsession has become my second hand obsession and so I find myself squealing at anything that looks like a bee, depicts a bee, helps the bees etc. With that in mind, when Bee Good asked me if I'd like to try their Honey & Wild Water Mint 3-in-1 Cleansing Water*, I couldn't resist. Not only do Bee Good provide skincare that is made with the help of British Bees, but a share of their profits also go back to protecting the bees in Britain - which is impressive, if you ask me (and you're on my blog, so you sort of did).

I've tried the Bee Good Honey and Propolis 2-in-1 Cream Cleanser before at Katy's house (and in fact Bee Good provided us with a travel sized one in each #NWmeet gift bag) and got along really nicely with it but never quite made the jump from my beloved Body Shop cleansing butter. This product, however, is on a totally different plane - I'd expected a micellar water I think, but this isn't even close; it's almost like a thin gel and you can use it on your eyes and without water (I guess in that way it sort of is like a micellar water). I put this to the test on my make-up for the first time after the meet up - think full face of make-up including very, very smudged and runny eyeliner - and to be honest, I have to admit I was impressed.

This isn't a straight up cleanser for me if I've been wearing make-up all day, more a pre-cleanse before a thicker cleanser like the aforementioned Body Shop offering; however, this does manage to take off a considerable amount of eye make-up and eyebrows; no mean feat. I have to admit that the smell was a little bit of a letdown for me - it's a little nothingy and generic cleansery where I expected super fresh and clean, however it's not unpleasant and so more than bearable. I like (and you should have come to expect this if you've been around here for a while) that this is a no water cleanser, as in the morning or on days I've felt too rubbish to actually wear make-up I can do this from bed with just a cotton pad; bonus!

All in all, the smell of this could be better - but I like Bee Good a lot. I like the company, and the ethics, how affordable that their products are (you can get a duo pack of the waters for £16.50), that they put money back into helping British bees. This definitely does leave clean, fresh skin without too much residue and it does remove a good portion of my make-up as a pre-cleanse. Probably not one to use alone, or if you go for sweet smelling skincare, but definitely a nice addition to my skincare routine nonetheless.

Have you tried anything from Bee Good?
