BeeYoutiful - a review

We have recently made some pretty big changes in our home regarding our health. We are now making our own laundry detergent as well as dishwasher detergent. I only use natural cleaners such as baking soda and vinegar in the day to day cleaning of the house We are eating healthier, including Zach and I both eating gluten free. I have done a ton of research on our health and the toxins that we put in our bodies as well as the ones we use to "clean" our bodies. It is really quite scary all the toxins a typical person uses or eats in a day. It is truly no wonder that there seems to be more cancer and more rare diseases today than ever before. So, for our family, we are trying to reduce toxins as much as we can. It is not feasible for us to totally eat organic foods and buy all natural everything because we definitely have a budget. We are taking the philosophy of doing as much as we can and praying that God keeps us healthy and keeps the toxins in the products we can't change from harming us.

One company that I have found, and been very blessed to review a couple of products from is BeeYoutiful.

At, we believe that each individual is responsible for their own health. It is not a doctor's responsibility to keep you in good health. Instead they are a tremendous resource, especially for those times when urgent care is required. But, they are only one of many resources. And the tools they use, while powerful, are not the only tools available. But a tool is worthless unless one knows how to use it.

I received BeeYoutiful's milk and honey facial bar. It is a reasonably priced $10 for a 4.25oz bar. I love that it looks like a little beehive!

The ingredients in the facial bar are :Raw Goat Milk, Distilled Water, Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Vegetable Oil, Sodium Hydroxide (lye), Raw Honey, Bee Pollen, Bee Propolis, Beeswax, Sweet Orange Essential Oil

Wow! I can actually pronounce all the ingredients unlike the old facial soap I was using!

The company states that this product will fight acne, help repair sores, sooth chapping, reduce wrinkles by improving the skin's elasticity, as well as balance uneven or oily skin. I have been using this bar for about a month and I am very happy with the way my face feels and looks. I have not had any major breakouts (which I am still prone to in my mid-thirties!) and my face feels soft and firm. I can't say I have noticed less wrinkles, but I don't have too many wrinkles anyway. It definitely makes me feel better knowing I am cleaning my face with a product with more natural ingredients. I am also very impressed with how long the bar is lasting. As I mentioned, I have been using it for about a month and I probably still have more than a months worth left before I need to purchase another one (which I will definitely be doing!!!)

Another product I was sent for review is the lip B.A.L.M.

The lip balm contains only 4 ingredients, all of which are designed to help soothe your sore and chapped lips in a natural way:

GrapeSeed Oil- high in antioxidants (procyanidolic oligomers and polyphenols) and linoleic acid which nourish, moisturize, naturally provide anti-inflammatory support, and help smooth fine lines and wrinkles! So instead of merely relieving your chapped lips, it is nourishing them and helping them look their best as well!

Shea Butter- also high in antioxidants, Shea Butter helps bring elasticity back to the skin, moisturizes, has natural sun protection, and helps bring healing to scars and wounds.

Beeswax- recommended by Mayo Clinic as an excellent choice for a lip balm, beeswax is high in germicidal antioxidants, possesses natural anti-inflammatory abilities, and has been shown to have antibacterial qualities. It gives body to the lip balm while providing moisture and cell restoration for your lips!

Essential Oils- (Either Orange or Peppermint Essential Oil)- Both provide refreshing flavors while providing their naturally inherent benefits to your lips! Orange is a refreshing, citrusy blast that helps to brighten your lips. Peppermint’s cool, tingly flavor will bring soothing refreshment to your lips on the driest of days!

I am not one who uses a lot of lip balm, but when I do, I want it to work quickly. I also want it to taste good. And, now, as we are trying to be more conscious of the toxins we use, I want it to have natural ingredients. This lip balm does all of those things!

You can purchase it at their website for only $3. It is slightly less if you buy a greater quantity.
