I tried BeeSilk Junior for the first time and was rather surprised to find that it is just like the regular BeeSilk bar, only in a tin. I was expecting it to be softer. I specifically wanted to try it on my face, because my skin seems to really like the beeswax, but this isn't any easier to apply to my face than the regular BeeSilk. I'm sure I will use it--I love BeeSilk for my hands--but I am a little disappointed.
We love our Bee Silk Jr. I have to hide it from my kids or they will use a whole 4oz container in a week! My husband even likes it because it isn’t greasy! I enjoy it because I have very sensitive skin and this lotion does not aggravate it like lotion from the store!
this is my first time with beesilk jr, and it was a little surprising - it doesn't absorb like a lotion, it remains as a sort of light coating. I can't use it during the day on my hands, but put some on before bed and my hands haven't felt this good in a very long time.
I'm not a lavender fan, if you are then you will love the lavender junior. Gonna trash it noone in my family likes the smell.
The other ingredients are amazing
Bee Silk Junior is the balm!! Literally! It is so easy to apply. It not only moisturizes but it also seems to create a sort of waterproof barrier of protection especially for delicate and tender skin. It is perfect for wee ones, especially after bath, before heading into cold weather, and of course when changing a diaper. My daughter uses cloth diapers and this and the rash cream do not leave troubling /hard to wash out residue! Whatever the skin trouble may be (wee ones to grownups), this "lotion" is the product to reach for and use first. Healing, soothing, and protecting!
My whole family has been using Beesilk Jr. for many years. It’s our go-to healing balm for dry skin of all kinds, rashes, cuts, scrapes, chafing, and more. If we have a skin ailment, we try Beesilk Jr. first. It has saved my hands through this pandemic. I’m loving the lavender scented balm as a before bed treatment for my hands.
Beesilk Junior is an incredible product when one wants an easy to apply lotion like product. It is great if one is a reactive person with dry, sensitive skin. This is not just for children but also super for dry vintage skin. Try it and you will order it for frequent applications.
I bought the Beesilk junior family size and the hard lotion in stick form. Previously I had the hard lotion bar. Out of the three, the junior is my least favorite. It is difficult to get out of the tin because it is really firm, which I wasn't expecting. Also, it doesn't seem to work as well for my son's eczema as the other two.
I absolutely love the texture and feel of the Bee Silk Junior! Kind of a hard, waxy-like butter, but melts easily when rubbed onto skin. I use the back of my fingernail to push up however much I need. Makes my hands and feet so super soft, and it provides a nice beeswax layer that keeps my hands soft even after a couple washings. I also love the smell! It must be the beeswax with a very subtle honey-like scent. Mmm! I'm always looking for a good, healthy balm or body butter to use, and this one, with only 3 ingredients, is just right for what I need. I'm looking forward to buying some of Renee's recipes and trying to make this one at home! Thank you, Renee, for making such great products!
