Today I got a glorious parcel in the mail. It contained the final missing piece of my Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr. Honey collection: the Banila Co. Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Cream.
The jar is absolutely spectacular.
But of course it’s what’s on the inside that counts. What’s on the inside is a thick but soft and easily spreadable cream that, like the Miss Flower & Mr. Honey Essence Oil and Essence Stick, exudes the full-flavored sweetness of rich golden honey dripping straight off the comb. A little bit dabbed onto the back of my chronically dry hand made the skin instantly soft and comfortable.
As with the rest of the line, there are a bevy of lovely moisturizing, barrier-supporting, brightening, and anti-aging actives and extracts in there. And honey goodness, of course.
Honey extract, aureobasidium pullulans ferment, dipropylene glycol, dimethicone, cyclopentasilloxane, butylene glycol, glycerin, cetearyl alcohol, PCA dimethicone, niacinamide, glycereth-26, petrolatum, trisiloxane, glyceryl stearate SE, butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, chrysanthellum indicum extract, plukenetia volubilis seed oil, argania spinosa kernel oil, olea europaea (olive) fruit oil, royal jelly extract, calendula officinalis flower extract, chamomilla recutita seed oil, pentylene glycol, dimethiconol, glyceryl stearate, PEG-100 stearate, ammonium acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP copolymer, PEG-150 distearate, water, raffinose, caprylyl glycol, dipotassium glycyrrhizate, adenosine, arginine, caprylic/capric triglyceride, octyldodecanol, hydrogenated coco-glycerides, sodium starch octenylsuccinate, maltodextrin, calcium pantothenate, hydrogenated lecithin, sodium ascorbyl phosphate, tocopheryl acetate, pyridoxine HCI, silica, xanthan gum, disodium EDTA, phenoxyethanol, fragrance, CI 19140
I’m a bit nervous about the petrolatum. Most moisturizers with petrolatum don’t sit well on my skin, leaving me oily and shiny, but here it isn’t the first ingredient, and I’m hoping it’ll be okay. It certainly is fine on my hand, but hands and faces are different things.
I’ve been wanting to complete this set ever since I found out there were other Miss Flower & Mr. Honey products besides the masks.
Just for fun, let’s take a look at my entire honey collection! Well, except for the sheet masks: one of each variety is represented, but you know me. I’ve got multiples of a few of those. Especially the Tosowoong Pure Propolis.
I’ve been a bit busy and haven’t had time to post extensive reviews or features for a while, but things are calming down now. Expect lots of posts coming very soon!
