What is the difference between the Reviving Cleansing Cream, Hydrating Foam Face Wash and Brilliant Balm

Here is a handy guide to show you an overall difference between the three products, for a more in-depth look please carry on reading 

Our Reviving Cleansing Cream is a rinse-off cleanser that cannot be left on the skin. It can be used both morning and night. It is a cream and oil-based cleanser which is lighter in weight than the balm.  

It contains anti-inflammatory properties to help reduce redness, blemishes and problematic skin. It is anti-ageing and repairs and hydrates skin.  

You need to apply this to damp hands and skin and then use with a wet Lucy Bee muslin cloth or cotton pads to wipe away the cleansing cream and impurities it has lifted.  


Our Brilliant Balm is multipurpose. It can be used as a leave-on product to moisturise dry skin (overnight mask/balm and on dry areas), as well as a deeply nourishing and rich cleansing balm that can be used morning and night (morning – great way of boosting your skin’s hydration and getting the oxygen and blood pumping. Evening – makeup remover and more of a luxury, relaxing evening balm).  

You need to apply it to dry hands, warm the product up and then apply to dry skin. Massage into the skin and then wipe off with a wet Lucy Bee muslin cloth/cotton pad.  

It helps improve firmness, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and is intensely nourishing, soothing and skin-protecting. It is great for sensitive skin, dry skin and as an anti-ageing product as it really locks in the moisture.   


Our Hydrating Foam Face Wash, is a foam face wash which is rinsed off the skin and doesn’t require a muslin cloth. It has the consistency of silky mousse, and although a foam this product doesn’t strip the skin or leave you feeling dry. Shake well before use. Apply 1-2 pumps onto damp hands, massage into the face, then rinse away. 

Use daily either as your only cleanse, or as a second cleanse after Brilliant Balm or Reviving Cleansing Cream. 

Both the Reviving Cleansing Cream and Brilliant Balm contain ingredients to help remove stubborn makeup, whereas our Hydrating Foam Face wash cleanses the skin from daily impurities. All three help strengthen the skin barrier.
