Is Reviving Cleansing Cream suitable for people with sensitive skin?
Yes, we’ve had this product tested by an independent testing house and they have confirmed that it is suitable for sensitive skin. However, we are all different so we recommend doing a small patch test before using to check that it suits your skin.
Does this have added fragrance?
We’ve formulated this with no added fragrance because we understand how sensitive some skin types can be. You will still get a hint of the natural aroma of the ingredients used, which is perfectly normal as we have not deodorised the ingredients.
Can my child/teenager use Reviving Cleansing Cream?
Our Reviving Cleansing Cream is suitable for children over 9 and teens. We would advise starting slowly with such young skin and if you have any concerns we would recommend talking to a doctor or dermatologist. When using any new product, we recommend doing a patch test first. See here for how to patch test.
Does this product contain alcohol?
In the cosmetic world, when a product states that it is “alcohol free” it is referring to the formulation being free from Alcohol Denat / Ethanol (ethyl alcohol), which our Reviving Cleansing Cream is free from.
All other types of alcohol such as fatty alcohols (cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, etc.), preservatives such as Benzyl Alcohol should not be taken into consideration in this respect. Lucy Bee uses benzyl alcohol in some products. This is a broad-spectrum preservative system (it means it protects against bacteria, yeast and fungi) for personal care (combined to dehydroacetic acid). It meets COSMOS Organic standard and is effective in a wide pH range.
How should I store this?
We recommend storing your Reviving Cleansing Cream in a cool, dry cupboard. We also recommend washing hands before using the product to avoid contamination.
How long will this product last?
Once opened, this has a shelf life of 12 months.
Is Reviving Cleansing Cream suitable for eczema sufferers?
Everyone is different so we wouldn’t like to say that this is 100% for every eczema sufferer.
Reviving Cleansing Cream has been approved as suitable for sensitive skin so the ingredients are very gentle. However, if you are worried about using the products then we recommend trying a small patch test first before using properly.

Is Reviving Cleansing Cream suitable if I have rosacea?
Reviving Cleansing Cream has been dermatologically approved for sensitive skin and has anti-inflammatory properties such as turmeric, which helps with reducing redness.
This also contains aloe vera and coconut oil which are soothing, nourishing, hydrating and skin-boosting due to the antioxidant properties.
Lucy suffers from mild rosacea on her cheeks and one of the other team members suffers more seriously with it and they have found this product has really suited their skin and have helped to calm and soothe it. It has also helped to keep the skin hydrated and it doesn’t trigger them to flare up or cause any irritation.
The range will help with hydration but of course everyone’s skin is different and if you have any concerns, we recommend doing a patch test first.

Face Wash – use on its own if wearing little to no make-up, or as the second cleanse (after Brilliant Balm or Reviving Cleansing Cream), removes dirt grime, and traces of makeup etc. Great in morning when waking, or after gym, etc.

What’s the packaging?
Reviving Cleansing Cream is recyclable packaging:
Aluminium tube - we've used this because of its environmentally-friendly properties, ie. it can be easily recycled time and time again. Something to note with aluminium is that although it's very flexible, it can soften and break if creased and so we recommend squeezing from the end to get the product out, keeping the tube flat and smooth
PP plastic screw top lid – remove this to recycle the tube
FSC cardboard outer carton
FSC cardboard inner liner
