And here’s the review of Sierra Bees Calendula Soothing Skin Cream with Manuka Honey:
Product / Quality:
Sierra Bees Calendula Soothing Skin Cream with Manuka Honey has white color, it has a really light texture and absorbs into the skin beautifully without leaving the skin oily or greasy and feeling heavy. It really is an all purpose soothing cream, you can use it on your face, body or your hands. It’ll moisturize and soothe your skin especially the dry areas like our elbows or knees.
And because it has a light and not too oily texture, it’s suitable for all skin types. Also because of its light texture it’s really easy to apply on the skin (unlike some thicker creams) and absorbs almost instantly, leaving the skin moisturized and soft.
Even though Sierra Bees Calendula Soothing Skin Cream with Manuka Honey doesn’t contain any fragrances, it does have a scent. The scent itself is a little bit hard to describe, but it isn’t too overpowering or unpleasant. It has a really gentle smell of herbs, probably because of all essential oils that it contains, mixed with a little bit of honey. Actually the honey scent is a little bit dominant and tends to linger on the skin.
It also has a little fresh and slightly citrus scent even though it doesn’t contain any citrus essential oils, but this fresh scent is probably due to the different flower extract and essential oils that the cream has. So all in all, it’s a unique scent that some people will really like because it’s pleasant and not too overpowering.
You can find Sierra Bees Calendula Soothing Skin Cream with Manuka Honey on iHerb and its regular price is $6.95 for 2 oz. pot (60 grams) and the big Sierra Bees Calendula Soothing Skin Cream with Manuka Honey for $10.95 for 4 oz. pot (120 grams). For this price, you’re actually getting a nice size cream pot and the great thing is that a little bit of the product goes a long way. So even if you’re using the soothing cream everyday, you’ll still be using it for at least couple of months before running out of cream.
