There’s a new buzz in London town… atop the Hilton London Bankside hotel are bee hives teeming with busy little workers producing honey for British beauty brand Bee Good.
This particular wildflower honey ends up going full circle: it’s added to the all-natural Bee Good range of products, a number of which are used in the new Bee Good Signature Honey Facial way down in the hotel’s new Spa To You treatment rooms.
After cleansing with Honey & Propolis Cream Cleanser, skin is toned with the gentle Honey & Wild Mint Cleansing Water. Exfoliation follows using the Honey & Camelina Facial Exfoliant to controls sebum, after which steam is used to open up pores for extraction on any pesky black and white heads (this is optional).
The gorgeously unctuous NectaPerfecta enzyme mask follows, made from a blend of British honey, beeswax and natural plant waxes to reduce trans-epidermal water loss in the skin and protecting against dehydration.
Finally, a layer of Youth Enhancing Hydrate, Smooth & Prime Serum, packed with propolis, larch extract and blackcurrant oil, is applied, before skin-quenching Honey & Wild Flax Moisturiser is added.
Once you’ve managed to wake up and peel yourself off the treatment bed, you’re served a soothing cup of herbal tea made with honey from the hotel’s rooftop.
A gorgeous facial, but if you’re prone to claustrophobia, I advise not having the steam element as it lasts quite a while and is quite close to your face.
