This product is every bit as wonderful as the reviews say. Like all luxurious and expertly-crafted products, the beauty is in the simplicity and quality of the ingredients. Think about this product like gourmet five-star Michelin cuisine, whereas most other products are pre-packaged tv dinners.

Like all fine dining, the ingredients are impeccable, the recipe is refined, and obsessively-close attention is paid to every aspect of quality. While the formula seems deceptively simple, the carefully crafted proportions, skillful combination, and overall aspect of presentation and packaging combine to reflect a rare quality to satisfy the most discriminating of tastes. Whereas your tv dinner is packaged with all kinds of nasty preservatives with chemical names you canít pronounce, artificial fragrances and colors to balance out the bizarre chemistry experiment that it is so as not cause immediate adverse reaction, B&B is organic shea butter, organic rosehip oil, and not just any vitamin E, but naturally sourced non-GMO vitamin E. Thatís called a real commitment to being truly au naturale.

Now I have exceptionally dry skin and I apply this product on my face, neck, and decolletage between two to four times a day, usually three. And one jar still lasts me about three months. And because Bubble and Bee is about being accessible to everybody, this makes the price very affordable. I will say that this product has not diminished the darkness of the very dark under eye circles on my pale Irish/Welsh skin, but it has improved the appearance and texture of the skin under my eye. I have been using this product for almost a year and Iíve seen an overall improvement in my skinís appearance and I have not seen an increase in fine lines or wrinkles, and almost all of the redness in my face has completely disappeared. I have not seen an increase in the fine red blood vessels on the sides of my nostrils or the tiny red spider lines on my upper chest. My face appears more plump, skin tone is much more even, and I have that healthy glow. Iím not afraid of a little shine.

One word of warning: This product is sensitive to heat and if you ship it above 80 degrees or so (remember its even hotter in those delivery trucks) , it will melt and lose its texture. Itís still useable, but I like my product to arrive pristine. So stock up for the warm and hot months in advance.

I am 52 yrs old. I was frustrated by not finding a face cream that met my needs. I wanted an organic product. I love that this has very simple ingredients. Shea butter, rose hip seed oil, which is very hot among actors in Hollywood today, and vitamin E. This cream feels so soft and soothing on my face. I have had trouble in the past with light wrinkles along with acne on my t-zone. The wrinkles are less noticible now. I haven't had an acne breakout since using this cream some three months now. I bought the trial size first of bumble and bee face cream for 4.99 on their website. It lasts a long time for a tiny jar. I then eagerly purchased their regular jar. My daughter said she'd like to try a trial size. She is 26. I will update you as to how her results were.

I love it since this is one of the only cream that is organic. I think it does a decent job moisturizing. I have a very forgiving skin type. I never had a pimple in my life. Unfortunately, this cream is so oily that it give me pimples if I use it too many days in a roll. Because its so cheap, I turn to using it on my neck, my hand and what not.

One of my eco-beauty kit staples this is basic and effective moisturizer for the face that is made with simple ingredients that doesn't sensitize my skin. It's made with organic shea butter which makes a great emollient depending on how thickly it's applied (a little does go a looooong way though which makes this a good value too). It melts into the skin but it can make it a little shiny at first so it's important to not overload. I apply it on my lips as well to give them a good moisturized base after I've washed my face or gotten out of the shower (I've tried using it as just a lip gloss but it absorbs too quickly and the shine doesn't seem to last long enough which is why I just use it as lip moisture base). The packaging is cute and hilarious but there's a lot of text on it so be prepared for a bit of a read (also they seem to use a little excess packaging from what I remember, like a box within a box and then the tub of cream...I recycle all that stuff but it's something to note).

This cream is GREAT!!!

I moved to LA a couple of years ago and my skin has become totally sensitive to any allergens, breaks out all the time, is oily yet totally dried out, and a mess in general. As a product freak, I used several different creams - from Malin + Goetz to Jurlique to Dr. Hauschka to Derma E to MyChelle and so on, and on. Nothing seemed to work. I tried this based on the MakeupAlley reviews - to my surprise! I figured $22 was not a big investment to see if this might help.

As soon as I got this out of the jar I was confused - this is like real body butter, oily, and thick. I slathered it on and I didn't quite get it. It felt like it sat on my skin and didn't sink in. I was afraid I would break out. Why was it getting these awesome reviews??

I went back to the reviews and noticed several peeps recommended using (most likely, 1/8 of the amount I used) and adding some water. After making these changes the cream has been spectacular!!! No break outs at all, no irritation, I got the hydration feeling from using it with water, and the most amazing thing is that I wake up with NO under-eye circles! It's the strangest thing - I woke up the first couple of days and did a double-take - no darkness under my eyes!! MAGIC!

Love, Love, Love.....I bought this based on the positive reviews and so glad I did. A very little bit goes a very long way. I usually scoop out a small bit and warm it in my hands before spreading on my face. It's smooth, creamy and with my dry skin, it soaks in immediately and you can see the difference. My skin looks hydrated and wrinkles are slightly diminished. The packaging is great - all recycled. This is definitely a HG for me! I've spent forever trying to find a moisturizer that works, and now I've found it. :) The non scented is also a huge plus. I have sensitive, acne prone dry skin.

BEST FACE CREAM EVER! thank you MUAers, being from the UK i would have never found this product and i am SO glad i did!
I can firmly say i will never be buying another brand of face cream ever again! it has really improved my skin and my first fine lines that were starting to rear their ugly head have vanished, the dark circles under my eyes (genetic might i add) have gone (no other eye cream has EVER gotten rid of em)!...and i've only been using it for 5 days
I honestly can't believe that something with only 3 ingredients can have such a fantastic result!
I urge you all to buy some and try it for your self!
the only negative i have is that i can't buy it in England, i have to order it from the US and the air miles i'm goin to clock up repurchasing it will make me feel guilty about my CO2 footprint :S
------------------------------
3 months in and still using it, i'm about half way down my first tub, and still SO glad i bought it! and i can feel slightly smug that my skin looks healthier, and younger then all my friends ;)
I can't recommend this stuff more! where ever you are in the world definitely give it a go, you'll NEVER regret it!

I LOVE this face cream. It sounds intimidating using a face cream with oil and butter for someone with very reactive & acne prone sensitive skin. I have been using this face cream on and off for about 2 years. I was looking for a face cream with simple and NO unrealistic magical claims!! I tried many expansive dept. store brands like Shiseido, Estee Lauder, Lancome, Sisley etc...the list goes on & on until they all RUINED my skin and caused acne outbreaks. Then I would use this face cream to help my face heal and keep my skin moisturized.

I got my fiance to try this face cream since he did not use any skin care & his face was always dry with flakes from psoriasis medications. He has very sensitive skin & is prone to psoriasis outbreak so I was glad this cream works great for him. He was hooked on this cream & started using this religiously. I followed his footstep & stopped switching between different brands.

Here is my review for the cream:


Texture --> very nice and creamy, but you need to be careful not using too much b/c it can be too oily if you use too much.


Skin Effects --> keeps my skin healthy & moisturized!! No unreal magical claims like other face cream I have purchased. Also, it is fragrance free so it does NOT cause skin rash, redness or irritation on my skin. Fragrance makes me sneeze & give me headaches. Also, I have NOT break out from this face cream yet (NO blackheads, white bumps, and cyst acne). This cream also works GREAT under eyes, so I don't need to buy another cream for my eyes.


Ingredients --> They are the BEST ingredients you can find. It's SIMPLE & USDA ORGANIC! Face creams with too many ingredients often clogs my pores, make me break out, or cause allergic reactions. With only 3 ingredients, I know which ingredient my skin will react badly to!! Luckily, my skin loves these ingredients so far & has not have any bad reactions.


This cream is GREAT underneath Tazorac (Retinol cream)! I'm using the strongest strength of Tazorac & my skin dries and peels during the day. This cream helps keeping my skin moisturized & helps my skin tolerate the Side effects of Retinol!

FYI: My skin type is oily around the T-zone with very large pores and deep acne scars. I suffer from acne for more than 15 years. I have sensitive and dry cheeks. My hairline gets skin rash when I use the wrong skin care due to atopic dermatitis.

Update: It has been more than 1 year since I wrote this review! I'm still using the face cream! I hope Bubble and Bee keeps making this face cream!

I've been trying to go organic with my skincare products, and I'm SO glad I found Bubble & Bee. Everything I've tried I've really liked, and this face cream is no exception. However, because this stuff is pretty darned heavy, I don't actually use it as an all-over face cream, but it has become my HG under-eye moisturizer. I've been plagued with nasty little dry patches under my eyes, and nothing, not even prescription stuff, really helped to get rid of it. I've been using the Bubble & Bee cream for about 6 weeks, and my eye area has never looked smoother. Don't know if it does much for wrinkles, but it also seems to be helping my dark circles quite a bit. LOVE! Also, since a little goes a looooong way, I imagine my sample-sized jar (which cost a whopping $4.99 plus shipping) will last me at least 6 months, probably more, which is pretty much the best bargain ever.

Lies! They said this cream would last 1 to 4 months. I've been using the same jar for almost 8 months and it's still not even halfway gone! Be careful...I bought 2 jars, and I don't even think I'll get around to using the second jar until the world ends in 2012!
It really is a great moisturizer. I used to have small breakouts now and again, but I haven't for a while (and maybe only when I touch my face), so this doesn't make you break out.
Amen to what everyone's said before for smell, texture, etc.
I like rubbing in a single drop of water with a dab of the cream for extra smooth application.
It's perfect for night, but I don't use it in the day because I use Badger Balm's SPF 30 sunscreen, which is also all-natural and really moisturizing. And for extra points, read up on the ingredients--they're the best out there, and super nutritious for your skin. Woohoo for another great Bubble and Bee product!
