Manuka Doctor - If it's good enough for celebs!

I quite like the name of the brand as I have always been a fan of Manuka Honey and it's benefits. This entire range is of course based on the primary product harvested by Bees i.e. the Bee Venom and all that good, naturally effective stuff.

Besides it's natural goodness, Bee Venom in Skincare has quite a celeb fanbase including Millie Mackintosh, Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham and so on.

Manuka Doctor have quite a few ranges under the brand, suitable for different skin types such as troubled skin, dry skin, one for well being and one for restoration.

I myself suffer from combination-oily skin, mixed with a bit of dryness here and there hence I tried a good mix of products suitable for both needs.

The Cleanser is brilliant. It's very creamy and foams brilliantly, which makes it quite a luxurious treat. The results achieved from this are not parched and taut skin. It in fact leaves skin quite comfortable yet squeaky clean, delivering a nice, bright effect. 

You know how you usually have to rush to moisturise skin after washing it with a face wash? That doesn't happen with this product so I can lounge around for a good few hours without the need to moisturise. 

Aah the toner. Not many people are a fan of 'toners' in general. I am personally obsessed with the added 'essential' in my skincare regime. This toner in particular is less harsh than Clinique's but has still managed to keep my blemishes and spots under control quite significantly and has been a staple since then.

Again, feels like a dream to apply. Doesn't have any scent to it in particular and is suitable to use on the eyes and on sensitive skin. 

The Nourishing and Repair Cream is for dry and dehydrated skin and besides containing the bee venom and Manuka Honey, this has the added Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E for help restore the skin from damage and aid in cell generation. 

Yet another brilliant product from the range. The texture of this is quite like a gel and glides over the skin so smoothly leaving it velvety soft. It leaves skin significantly smoother and brighter compared to when I use other products. I would say it's suitable for all skin types as it's just perfect consistency and texture, hydrate and protect skin without breaking it out. 

Overall, quite a unique brand in my opinion. Why unique? Because it does more than what it says. It's like a milder version of Clinique. Lives up to the claims and is quite luxurious for a modest price. 

Available at Holland and Barrett, definitely check it out!
