“I’ve never been very good with skin care but now I’m in my mid 40s and experiencing peri-menopausal symptoms my skin needs a lot of TLC so I purchased this along with the Radiance-Boosting Face Cream and firmly believe this serum has made such a difference to my skin. It’s so light to put on and my skin feels so much better after a few applications that it’s now going to be a staple part of my skin routine.”

They are the best on the market, the SPF is the only one that doesn’t make me break out or sting my eyes, it is fabulous. The face cream is my go-to, I’ve tried other more expensive options but keep coming back to this one. It gives me the confidence and keeps my cheeks calm even when I’m having a hot flush! Brilliant.”

       Reviews

      “The most effective natural deodorant. After trying many natural deodorants over the years, I must admit that I was a little sceptical, but after reading the reviews, I decided to try Lucy Bee deodorant. I can honestly say that for me (menopausal) it is 100% effective and works brilliantly.”
      – Carole 
       
      “Game changer!! I will never use another deodorant again!! I often found being menopausal my odour was more noticeable throughout the day! I did not have the confidence of “that fresh feeling” this product has changed all my insecurities regarding that!! I’m fully confident at last at 47 years old to let my skin breathe! Thank you! I don’t think you realise the full impact these products have on people visually and physiologically too. Amazing!”
      – Bethan  
       
      “Best Natural Deodorant. I’ve been using natural deodorants for a while, some glide on super soft but don’t work, others have ripped my armpits apart, but smell wise, they do work. This amazing product is easy to apply and works. I’m a post menopausal woman having night sweats and I’ve woken up this morning, smelling super fresh. It’s also good for sensitive skin.”
      – Amanda 
       
      “Unexpectedly brilliant. I bought the Natural Deodorant as I'm not a fan of anti-perspirants but because I do a lot of exercise and am above a certain age (menopause) I was suffering with smelly armpits despite bathing and/or showering daily. I wasn't sure what to expect but have to say I'm a total convert. From day one it dispelled the "natural aroma" and is so easy to use and has a gentle, and certainly not obvious, fragrance; as someone who cannot wear perfumes or highly perfumed cosmetics it's perfect. As well as working as described, I also love that it has no nasties in it, plus the ethos behind the brand and the recyclable packaging. Job done!”
      – JA
