Check out our blog here, to help you identify which skin type you have.

No Added Fragrance

We’ve formulated this product with no added fragrance because we understand how sensitive some skin types can be.

How To Use

Gently massage a small amount of moisturiser onto clean, dry skin. Repeat morning and evening as part of your daily skincare routine.

Avoid getting the product in your eyes  and if the product enters your eyes, rinse well with warm water.

Once opened, use within 12 months.

We recommend doing a small patch test before using this product to check that it suits your skin.

Perfectly matched with our Dazzling Tonic and Reviving Cleansing Cream.

No Palm Oil

Many skincare products list palm oil, or its derivatives, in their ingredients but we choose not to use it in any form in ours, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

There’s hardly a day goes by without reading in the press about deforestation for palm oil production and the fact that the very existence of orangutans is threatened because of this.

Many ingredients used in skincare include a derivative of palm oil, and it’s not always obvious that it’s been used. For example, some emulsifiers are sourced from either palm oil or coconut and the manufacturer of the emulsifier may not differentiate the source. We can confirm that no palm oil or derivatives of palm oil are used in any of our products. 

Formulated Without: 

  • Palm Oil (including derivatives of palm oil)
  • Petroleum
  • Silicones
  • Alcohol
  • Formaldehyde
  • PEGs
  • Sulphates
  • Artificial Dyes
  • Soy
  • Gluten
  • Parabens

Packaging

All packaging for our Radiance-Boosting Face Cream is fully recyclable:
  • Frosted glass jar
  • Aluminium screw top lid with EPE liner
  • FSC cardboard outer carton
  • FSC cardboard inner liner

FAQ

  • Does the Face Cream contain SPF?

This Face Cream does not contain SPF. It is something we are working on behind the scenes, but it is hard to create an SPF that is natural or organic that performs well and feels good on the skin.

For us, we want to create a range that we are happy to wear and at the moment we are still in the trialling stages. We advise you wear SPF sunscreen with the Lucy Bee Face Cream and products.

  •  Is the range suitable for people with sensitive skin?

We’ve had this product tested by an independent testing house and they have confirmed that it is suitable for sensitive skin.

Everyone’s skin is different however, so we recommend doing a small patch test before using this to check that it suits your skin.

  • Does this have a fragrance?

We’ve formulated this with no added fragrance because we understand how sensitive some skin types can be. You will still get a hint of the natural aroma of the ingredients used, which is perfectly normal as we have not deodorised the ingredients.

  • Where are your products manufactured?

Our products are manufactured in the UK.

  •  What sets Lucy Bee apart from other natural skincare brands?

The ingredients we have used are all extremely effective.

Additionally, Lucy Bee is proud to have achieved so many great certifications for our skincare range. We pride ourselves on being clear and transparent with everything we do. By having these certifications, you can be sure that you are buying an organic, vegan, cruelty free, palm oil free product.

Lucy Bee Skincare has also been awarded the number 1 UK ethical best buy by the Ethical Consumer Guide. Their ratings take into account things like animal testing, human rights, climate change, environmental reporting, palm oil, company ethos, product sustainability, amongst many other factors.

  • Can my child/teenager use Lucy Bee skincare products?

Yes, this hydrating range is suitable for all ages.

  • Does your skincare range contain palm oil?

No. The reason our skincare range has taken so long to produce is because we instructed our manufacturers that we do not want palm oil or any of its derivatives in our products.

  • Do your products contain gluten?

No. Every Lucy Bee product is free from gluten as Lucy herself is a coeliac.

  • Is the range certified Vegan?

Yes, the entire range has been approved by the Vegan Society.

  • Is the range certified Cruelty Free?

Yes, the entire range has been approved by Cruelty Free International (Leaping Bunny).

  • Is the range certified Organic?

Yes, the entire range has been approved by the Soil Association as COSMOS Organic.

  • Is the skincare range certified Fair Trade?

We’re passionate about the ethics and value of Fair Trade and where possible, we always buy Fair Trade ingredients. With our skincare range, unfortunately it hasn’t been possible for us to be able to include sufficient Fair Trade ingredients to allow these to be certified Fair Trade.

Where applicable, we use our own Lucy Bee Fair Trade ingredients, eg. Coconut Oil.

  • Is the packaging recyclable?

We have done everything we possibly can to make sure our packaging is recyclable. The majority of the range is made from glass and aluminium so that everything can be recycled.

  • Is everything paraben free?

Yes the entire range is free from parabens.

  • Is everything free from chemicals and artificial ingredients?

Yes the Lucy Bee Skincare Range is free from palm oil, petroleum, silicones, alcohol, formaldehyde, PEGs, sulphates, artificial dyes, soy and gluten.

  • Are your products tested on animals?

Absolutely not. Our products are all certified by the Vegan Society and by Cruelty Free International who both ensure that animal testing is not carried out.

  • How should I store my products?

We recommend storing your skincare products in a cool, dry cupboard. We also recommend washing hands before using the products to avoid contamination, especially the face cream where you are dipping your hands into the product.

  • How long will this product last?

Once opened, this has a shelf life of 12 months.

  • Is this suitable for eczema sufferers?

Everyone is different so we wouldn’t like to say that they are definitely suitable for every eczema sufferer.

The range has been approved as suitable for sensitive skin so the ingredients are very gentle. However, if you are worried about using the products then we recommend trying a small patch test first before using properly.

  • I have acne/prone to breakouts, can I use your products?

Obviously everyone’s skin is very different so people may have different reactions to things. This is an hydrating Face Cream and if you are worried then we recommend doing a small patch test before using the products.

  • How can I share my testimonial with you?

We’d absolutely love to see how the skincare range has worked for you. If you’d like to share it on social media then please tag us @lucybeeskincare, otherwise, please leave a review on our shop.

  • What does dermatologically approved actually mean?

You’ll notice that a lot of products say that they’ve been ‘dermatologically tested’ – this usually means that the products have been tested by a dermatologist. However, that’s all. You don’t know if they’ve passed testing or if they were any good for certain skin types.

By saying this product has been dermatologically approved, we can confidently say that a dermatologist has used and approved this product as suitable for sensitive skin. Obviously, we're all different so we recommend doing a patch test before using if you have any concerns.

  • Is the skincare range certified Fair Trade?

We would love to have the range certified as Fair Trade but unfortunately it takes a lot of hard work to get ingredients that work as Fair Trade. We supply our own Lucy Bee coconut oil when it’s needed.

  • Can I return my packaging to you to be recycled?

Unfortunately, we don’t have the capabilities to do this just yet. As we grow, we hope to be able to offer it. Until we can, you can recycle the majority of the packaging in your household recycling.

  • Where is your skincare available?

Currently, our skincare range is only available at our online store.

  • Are your products safe to use during pregnancy? 

Our Radiance-Boosting Face Cream, Dazzling Tonic and Reviving Cleansing Cream are all safe to use if pregnant.  

  • Does this product contain nuts?

Our Radiance-Boosting Face Cream and Reviving Cleansing Cream DO contain nuts.

  • Is this suitable if I have rosacea?

The range has been dermatologically approved for sensitive skin and has anti-inflammatory properties such as turmeric, which helps with reducing redness. The range also contains aloe vera, coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter and apricot oil which are all very soothing, nourishing, hydrating and skin-boosting due to the antioxidant properties.

Lucy suffers from mild rosacea on her cheeks and one of the other team members suffers more seriously with it and they have found the products have really suited their skin and have helped to calm and soothe it. It has also helped to keep the skin hydrated and it doesn’t trigger them to flare up or cause any irritation.

The range will help with hydration but of course everyone’s skin is different and if you have any concerns, we recommend doing a patch test first.

Lovely cream! Quite rich but suits my oily spot prone skin!

Anne M

I love this cream, it gives me a new sense of confidence around not wearing make up! I’m currently working from home on a lot of video con calls and am trying to not wear make up.. this cream has given me the confidence to do that without feeling dried out looking on screen!

Rhiannon P

I bought the face cream and cleanser and absolutely love them both. It feels like a treatment every night I use them and my skin looks really healthy in the morning. Love that they’re vegan and palm oil free

Katie L

Amazing! I have already ordered my second pot. I love how it feels on the skin, it’s not heavy, it’s just enough to feel moisturised and make up goes great after. My skin has felt smoother with a more even skin tone. Very happy

Kripa

I’m absolutely in love with this cream. I’m a sucker for turmeric and the slight fragrance of it is present making my skin feel amazing. My 9 year old has her own cream as well because she was starting to erupt in tiny swear spots from hormonal changes in her body. Those spots have now gone after a good cleansing routine and moisturising with this cream

Ozzie

Love this product so much I had to stop using my partners and bought my own. Was very impressed with the packaging and design quality of this product. Love the smoothness of the cream and how many skin feels after - very hydrated !!! You don't need to use much so a little goes a very long way. I've used other products in the past and this is the first one I'm going to stick with and keep using. Amazing value for money!

Hi Ozzie, thank you so much for your review. It's great to hear that you like the face cream. Our face cream is hydrating and nourishing, and also contains vitamin E and apricot to help rejuvenate tired looking skin, as well as turmeric to help give you a natural glow. As you said, a little goes a long way when using the products. Thank you for leaving such a great review, Daisy

Sam

I love the packaging and the cream itself feels silky, smells divine and makes my skin feel nice. But since I've started using it I've developed dry patches of skin on my cheeks which I've never had before. Still given 4 stars as it's probably just my skin as a lot of others don't have this problem.

Thank you for your feedback, Sam. We're glad to hear that you're enjoying how it makes your skin feel. Everyone's skin is so different so it's hard to say what might have caused this. Perhaps try using a little less to see if it makes a difference - a little does go a long way. Georgia

Rachel

The texture of this product is lovely, great that its unscented and works well with the tonic. I have found my skin to be a little tacky afterwards, even after trying a smaller amount so tend to only use it at night.

Thanks for your review, Rachel. So pleased that you're enjoying the skincare range. Try letting the Tonic soak in for a bit longer before applying the Face Cream, that might help. Georgia

Lucy

Love love LOVE it - it has a luxurious, glossy texture, but not too thick that it clogs pores or doesn’t absorb. I’ve noticed my skin feels silky smooth after using it. Thank you!!

Hi Lucy, thank you so much for your review, we love to hear that you love the face cream! Our face cream contains vitamin E (which is an antioxidant) and apricot oil to help repair tired-looking skin, turmeric to help even skin tone, aloe vera to soothe and hydrate, shea and cocoa butter to hydrate, bisabolol which helps protect against environmental stress, along with some other effective ingredients. Thank you again for your review, Daisy

Caroline F

Love this product!!! Lovely and smooth! Does smell a bit funky but can get used to that as love how ‘clean’ it is. Feels great on my skin.

Hi Caroline, It's so good to know that you're loving our Face Cream. We haven't added any fragrance to this but you do still get a hint of the natural aroma of the ingredients used because they haven't been deodorised. The range is hydrating and we've specifically chosen the ingredients for their individual properties, including apricot oil which is rich in essential fatty acids and vitamins with antioxidant benefits. Thanks again for your feedback. Petrina

As above

Thank you Becky for this awesome review! Joel

Jenny R

Thank you so much for creating such a lovely natural product. My skin looks so much better. It isn’t greasy anymore and amazingly it seems to have faded some small faint scars that I had from spots! It feels well moisturised

Hi Jenny, this is such an amazing review to read! We absolutely love to hear all the benefits people are feeling from the new Radiance Boosting Face Cream. The moisturiser is enriched with turmeric, which improves skin radiance and evens skin tone, giving you a natural glow. The addition of shea and cocoa butter thoroughly moisturise the skin. It's awesome to hear the effect the cream has had on the faint scars. We are so happy you are enjoying using the product! Thank you again for sharing your review. Joel

Suzanne M

I wanted to give it a good few weeks before reviewing to be sure how i felt about the products..... I LOVED the old face cream, i was worried this one wouldn't feel the same for me, my face is quite sensitive with what i put on it, but i have to say with using this and the dazzling tonic my face feels so smooth, not greasy or dry and less blemishes, so happy :) x

Hi Suzanne, this is such a great review to read! We are so happy that you have enjoyed using, and felt the benefits from, the face cream these past few weeks. Our Radiance-Boosting Face Cream is a hydrating, antioxidant powerhouse that contains vitamin E and apricot oil to help repair and rejuvenate all skin types. The addition of shea and cocoa butter thoroughly moisturise the skin. Thank you again for taking the time to leave such lovely feedback! We are buzzing to hear that you are happy with the new range! Joel

Jessica T

Feels lovely on my skin and doesn’t leave it too oily.

Thank you Jessica. The Face Cream contains hysilk which has been chosen because it supports epidermal hydration and reduces oiliness. It's great to hear that your enjoying its benefits. Petrina

Sam

I have the worlds most confusing skin, its oily but dry and every face cream I have tried promises the world for a very obscene price and it doesn't deliver.....until now. I have been using the cream for a week now and I absolutely love it. My skin feels less oily because the cream soaks into my skin rather than sitting on top and creating a sticky shiny film, another bonus which I wasn't expecting was it's a great base for my makeup and I have noticed my makeup is staying in place a lot longer throughout the day. On top of this I have noticed my skin tone is a lot more even it's less red, smoother and I am getting less spots which also means less foundation. My only regret is I didn't buy the other products at the same time but I will be rectifying that very soon. Oh and you really do get your monies worth, the pot is really full and you only need a little bit at a time. Thank you!!!!!!!!

This is amazing to hear Sam, thank you so much for your review. We really love hearing such amazing feedback! Our face cream contains coconut oil, aloe vera, cocoa butter, and turmeric which all help soothe, hydrate and brighten skin! Daisy

Ordered the face cream and absolutely love it. The cream is a great texture and it soaks into the skin lovely, leaves it so soft. I love that its non sented and the packaging is awesome...£35 is a bargain as u only need a small amount so will last a long time. 5 stars Lucy can’t wait to purchase a body scrub? if and when it is released as missed it last time round. Would recommend this face cream to everyone. To be honest all of your products are delicious xx

Hi Suzanne, what a lovely review to read! It makes us so happy to hear that you are loving the face cream! The Radiance-Boosting Face Cream is an antioxidant powerhouse that contains vitamin E and apricot oil to help repair and rejuvenate your skin. It is great to hear that you like the packaging - we take great care in the packaging of all our products and its lovely to hear such positive feedback on what we have produced. In regards to a body scrub, keep your eyes peeled as one will be on the way later in the year! Thank you again for this great review! Joel

Sarah M

Love it! My skin feel so hydrated, and so soft. My breakouts are clearing and I've no longer got dry patches on my cheeks! Will definitely be purchasing more products. Think I'll go for the cleanser next :)

Hi Sarah, this is so amazing to read! We love to receive such lovely feedback from our customers. The face cream contains vitamin E and apricot oil to help repair and rejuvenate skin, and it's great to hear your skin is feeling hydrated! Our Reviving Cleansing Cream uses coconut oil to remove makeup and daily impurities leaving skin refreshed and radiant. Like the face cream, it is also incredibly hydrating so I think it would be a good choice for your next purchase! Joel

Rosie M

I’ve been using the face cream for about a week now after running out of my usual cream the day that your new skincare range was released. The timing meant I felt it was a sign that I had to try it! The cream is thick and works into the skin well without feeling greasy despite feeling a bit sticky at first. It absorbs well and I think my skin has benefitted from using it over the last week. My only complaint is the smell and whilst I understand the reason for it having no added fragrance, it seems to have an odd cardboardy sort of smell that’s a bit off-putting. I’m fortunate not to have sensitive skin and for me a big part of my skincare routine is the smell of a product and the smell that your skin is left with afterwards. I’m not yet sure if I will but it again but if there was a fragranced option, I think I definitely would.

Hi Rosie, thank you so much for sharing this review, we really appreciate hearing what people think. It is great to hear that your skin has benefitted from using the face cream over the past week. We see the product as an antioxidant powerhouse, with Vitamin E and apricot oil helping to repair and rejuvenate skin. With regard to the smell, we are sorry you feel it has a bit of an odd fragrance. As you understand, we’ve formulated this with no added fragrance because we understand how sensitive some skin types can be. However, you will still get a hint of the natural aroma of the ingredients used. This is perfectly normal as we have not deodorised the ingredients. We hope the benefit your skin has felt due to the cream over the past week will encourage you to buy again. Do keep an eye out because we are, in fact, looking into fragranced options going forward. Thank you so much again for taking the time to give us your feedback. Joel

Louise M

I love the face cream, my face feels less thirsty. My only regret is I didn’t buy the other products but I will do soon!

Hi Louise, thank you so much for sharing such an amazing review. We are so happy you are enjoying the face cream, it's great to hear your skin is feeling hydrated! The face cream includes Vitamin E and apricot oil to help repair and rejuvenate skin. Thank you again for taking the time to share your feedback with us. Joel

Jenny

AMAZING! So worth the wait..day 2 of using the moisturiser and I can honestly say I can already see a difference in how much more hydrated my (44yr old) skin feels and looks...and it has last all day and night, woke this morning with softer, plumper hydrated skin than I’ve had in a long time. It glides on like a dream and feels very luxurious with no stickiness or heaviness, a really impressive moisturiser for day and night I would say! Definitely highly recommend this...well done Lucy

Thank you Jenny, this is great to hear. Our Face Cream is hydrating from the inclusion of aloe vera, coconut oil and coconut oil, with the addition of turmeric extract for its anti-aging properties. We're so pleased that you've seen the results already and are grateful to you for sharing this. Petrina

Keeley

Absolutely loving the new and improved face cream! When I first ordered it I was a bit worried about the price for what seemed like a small pot. I generally have quite dry skin and need to use a lot of moisturiser for my face to get it feeling hydrated so I didn't think the pot would last me very long. As soon as it arrived and I opened and applied it (after the cleanser and toner) I knew that I shouldn't of worried. A tiny bit definitely goes a long way and due to the thick consistency my face felt fully moisturised after only using a very small amount. I loved the previous face cream but this one is even better. Definitely worth the money and I am so glad I can ditch my other face creams again and only use this moving forward.

Brilliant! We're so pleased to hear this Keely and thank you for sharing it. We've carefully chosen ingredients for their hydrating properties for our Face Cream , such as coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter and aloe vera and, as you say, you don't need to use too much of it. We appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with us. Petrina
