REVIEW: Dr. Organic Manuka Honey Cream

Hello everyone! I recently decided that I wanted to explore more organic and natural options in terms of skincare - as I have such sensitive skin, I really have had no luck with more mainstream brands of skincare and I know that I cannot always be sure that my skin won't react badly to them due to their ingredients. 

So, my first purchase on my natural skincare journey was a facial cream from the brand Dr. Organic and in this post, I thought I would review it for you.
Where to Buy: HollandAndBarrett.com
Price: £8.99 for 50ml

About the Product: 
Dr. Organic's Manuka Honey Cream is a combination of Manuka honey and organic botanicals that are formulated for dry, sensitive and even irritated skin. Key ingredients within this cream include Manuka honey (of course) - that is well known for its healing, antibacterial properties - beeswax, cocoa butter, Aloe Vera and Shea butter.
My Thoughts:
As the product is organic, it does have a fairly strong scent of honey to which I however find fairly pleasant. Even if honey is not your favourite smell, I find that after a few uses, it becomes much less noticeable so it isn't too much of a problem.

Having very sensitive skin, most facial products always cause some form of discomfort or irritation for me but I was very happy to find that upon application of this cream, I didn't experience that at all. This was the case even when applying the cream to my eyes (which has been a problem area for me lately) - so this definitely gave me a good initial impression of the cream.

In terms of formula, this cream is fairly thick but for my dryer skin type, this is fine and I can happily use this product for both day and night use. However, if you have oiler skin, I would perhaps suggest sticking to using this cream only of a night. Though it may be thick, this cream is not greasy and it absorbs into the skin very quickly. Unlike a lot of creams, this product keeps the skin moisturised for hours without re-application and this is something you can definitely feel. 

Overall, I have really found this cream to have genuinely helped improve the condition and feel of my skin. Particularly around my eyes, it has really helped to lessen the dryness and inflammation leaving them feeling and looking much better. This cream also leaves the skin looking beautifully glowy and I think it'd make a really effective base for makeup application. 
At £8.99, it is a little pricier than a drugstore moisturise, but I don't consider this to be majorly expensive for a good facial moisturiser either. What is important to remember, is that a little bit of this goes a long way, it is an all natural product and as well as that, it actually works and is effective! In my book, all of these reasons make this cream an investment that is completely worth it and it is one that I will definitely be making again.
