If you have acne-prone skin, we recommend doing a patch test to check the suitability of this hydrating Face Cream. See here on details of doing a patch test.

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 contact with eyes. If product enters 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

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.

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.

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

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
