I am pretty low maintenance as far as beautifying goes. My makeup shelf is very small portion of our medicine cabinet and contains only three items: mascara for everyday use, a foundation/moisturizer/sunscreen combo for dry, blotchy skin that works yearround and two tinted lip moisturizers that offer a bit of a pick-me-up color. I will admit that right now the basic needs of my children take precedence over primping and preening.
Being of fair skin and blondish-hair, I tend to look half asleep if I don’t add just a bit of color to my face. My blue eyes are nearly lost amongst the wispy, barely-there eyelashes if I don’t do something, anything, to bring attention to them. Eyeliner and eyeshadow require too much time, but mascara is just up my alley. It is the single item that turns my entire face from a bleh-groggy-sleepyhead into a somewhat-awake hovering on lively flower. If I do nothing else, be it get out of my pajamas, eat a full meal, fold the laundry or pay a bill – I make time for a swipe of mascara. I become a woman and not just a mother. And, even if my body is wailing for sleep, my face appears awake, which in turns helps me feel the same.
A few months ago, I stumbled across a company with an apropos name – Honeybee Gardens. The products are not directly related to honeybees, beekeeping or honey, but their entire product line revolves around natural personal care products. The product line was developed by an herbalist and every single one of them is made entirely of natural ingredients including vegetable and plant extracts. I can pronounce the ingredients and I can find most of them growing in my garden.
My favorite Honeybee Garden product is the Truly Natural Mascara. It’s lightweight, but adds distinct color without being clumpy and overbearing. It’s pricepoint is below even the cheapo drugstore brands that are filled with who-knows-what and you can buy it everywhere. My favorite online source for personal care products, Vitacost, has it and I have even spotted it while flying through Target.
The product line of Honeybee Gardens isn’t just cosmetics. There is a full collection of almost every imaginable personal care product. There is an entire line of products for that hunky man in your life and body care including deodorant, hairspray and lip balms. I appreciate that they compliment their cosmetics line with an assortment of cosmetic tools that are made of eco-friendly materials, too.
Honeybee Gardens is a company committed to making cosmetic and personal care products from all-natural ingredients. They are keeping them affordable and easily accessible with a variety of outlets for purchase and pricing that’s right on the mark. The products live up to their guarantee and make me feel safe and responsible with the all-natural ingredients. I’m lovin’ Honeybee Gardens!
