While all of our skincare products are very gentle and made from natural ingredients, some of our products have been formulated with highly sensitive skin in mind. At Beauty & the Bees here in Tasmania, we TRULY understand dry, sensitive, eczema prone skin. Using her grandmother’s old remedies, Jill Saunders began this business in an effort to cure herself of disfiguring and chronic eczema and dry skin and succeeded by using only trusted, pure food ingredients.
A large proportion of our staff would fit into the “mature woman” category so we have many years of combined personal experience and therefore know that the marketing of “antiaging” products has always been just hype with most doing just the opposite!
Just like you, we have tried commercial skincare products time after time to find one that really moisturises and doesn’t burn or irritate our skin or make it itchy and dry. But our search for a product that actually kept the skin moisturised and comfortable for more than 12 hours was in vain. So we set about creating a skincare product range that would work for just about everyone!
The recommendations below in our Choosing Your Skincare filter are based on the ingredients used; and on actual customer feedback and staff experience. However, every person using our products is a unique individual whose requirements may vary regularly for any number of reasons (e.g. fluctuating hormones, dehydration, stress, change in climate etc.). We cannot factor everything into our simple Help Me Choose tool but find that most of our products can be adapted to change individual requirements.
If you are just starting out we would suggest that you trial our Taste of Honey Pack which contains a sample size of the following: Leatherwood honey and olive oil moisture cream soap bar, Leatherwood Honey & Coconut Cream Cleanser for sensitive skin, Rosewater Flowerpetal Toning Mist for all skin types, Tasmanian Seaweed, Honey & Herb Polishing Scrub for all skin types, and Leatherwood Honey and Coconut LIGHT moisture cream for sensitive skin.
Please select from each relevant category, based on your individual circumstances, to obtain the best recommendations. For more information about how to use our skincare products please see our Skincare FAQ section
NOTE: Acne/Oily skin type is for acne caused by oily/teenage skin, not from stress, hormonal changes or infection
