Weekend Ramblings: R.L. Linden & Co. The Bee Charmer

I don't think I say this enough on the blog, but I love honey. I love it in my tea, on my oatmeal and of course, on my face (hopefully I'm not the only one here). So you know that as soon as one of my favorite brands, R.L. Linden & Co., put up an Instagram picture of their latest honey cleanser/ exfoliant/ mask, a.k.a. The Bee Charmer*, I could not wait to get my hands on a sample. Thankfully, I did and I'm happy to report that Robin and Lynn have done it again!
Hello, adorable product description card.

At first when I read its ingredient list above, I was thinking The Bee Charmer* would be a little more abrasive than it actually is. The ingredients are as follows: raw honey, ritual chocolate (organic cacao and organic cane sugar), white clay, organic cacao extract, organic cacao nib and shell, poppy sees, essential oils of bourbon vanilla and Bulgarian rose and the flower essences of arnica, buttercup, corn lily and nasturtium. I think it was the "cacao nib and shell" that had me wondering whether or not this product would be okay for daily use, but I'm telling you that it totally is. The cacao nibs are there and they do exfoliate, but ever-so-gently so you're not going to over do it. 

The Bee Charmer in action.
As for the base of the product, the rich honey/chocolate/essential oil mixture smells good enough to eat,  like a big hunk of fancy chocolate in the best way. It's really kind of luxurious. However, the best part about this product isn't the smell or the exfoliant factor. It's the fact that this morning when I woke up (after using the mask last night), my skin felt incredibly soft. And now, I may be addicted. 

All that's left to do at this point is just anxiously wait until a full size of The Bee Charmer* is available for purchase. If you're feeling particularly impatient, though, The Bee Charmer* is available for purchase with R.L. Linden & Co.'s Travel Set. It includes a waxed canvas cosmetic bag and bunch of other goodies from R.L. Linden & Co.  It would actually make a great gift for someone!

So, what do you think about this new product? Are you a fan of all things honey-based as well?

The * denotes a product which I was sent free of cost.  Reviews will remain objective, regardless of how the product came to me.
