Benefits for Different Skin Types

You will find that using this product every day will brighten, tone and clear the complexion. It is an important step after cleansing as it helps to balance the pH level making the face cream absorb better, minimise pores and remove dead skin cells, giving the skin a healthy radiant glow. By exfoliating dead skin, it helps reduce blocked pores and blackheads.

Sensitive Skin:

  • Dermatologically approved for sensitive skin
  • Aloe Vera soothes and hydrates
  • Hysilk – supports the epidermis hydration


  • Lactic Acid – known to be an effective but gentle exfoliant and helps moisturise the skin
  • ACB Fruit Mix brightens the skin, improves skin tone and enhances cell renewal which helps in the prevention of signs of ageing
  • Sodium Hyaluronate - prevents signs of ageing by moisturising the skin and preventing water loss which can help with wrinkles and the appearance of dehydration lines

Combination Skin:

  • Hysilk – supports the epidermis hydration and reduces oiliness
  • Lactic Acid – known to be an effective but gentle exfoliant and helps moisturise the skin
  • ACB Fruit Mix brightens the skin, improves skin tone and enhances cell renewal which helps in the prevention of signs of ageing

When using the Tonic, tingling may occur and this is the ACB Fruit Mix and Lactic Acid working their magic and tightening and closing the pores.

No Added Fragrance 

We’ve formulated this product with no added fragrance because we understand how sensitive some skin types can be.

How To Use

After cleansing, apply tonic to cotton wool and wipe gently over dry skin morning and night.

Tingling and redness may occur for up to 30 minutes after use, this is the natural AHAs working their magic on the skin.

With AHAs, your skin may need to adapt to the product, so build-up the usage of it, if you feel that your skin is very sensitive.

If persistent irritation occurs, discontinue use.

When using products like AHAs including our Dazzling Tonic it is important and essential to wear SPF daily to protect the skin against UV rays. This AHA Tonic is a liquid exfoliant which introduces new skin to the surface helping with the overall appearance of the skin. You can read more about the importance of SPF here.

Avoid getting any product into your eyes and if it does enter your eyes, rinse well with warm water.

Once opened, use within 12 months.

This product is perfectly matched with our Radiance-Boosting Face Cream and Reviving Cleansing Cream.

No Palm Oil

Many skincare products list palm oil, or its derivatives, in their ingredients but we choose not to use it in any form in ours, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

There’s hardly a day goes by without reading in the press about deforestation for palm oil production and the fact that the very existence of orangutans is threatened because of this.

Many ingredients used in skincare include a derivative of palm oil, and it’s not always obvious that it’s been used. For example, some emulsifiers are sourced from either palm oil or coconut and the manufacturer of the emulsifier may not differentiate the source. We can confirm that no palm oil or derivatives of palm oil are used in any of our products.

Formulated Without: 
  • Palm Oil (including derivatives of palm oil)
  • Petroleum
  • Silicones
  • Alcohol
  • Formaldehyde
  • PEGs
  • Sulphates
  • Artificial Dyes
  • Soy
  • Gluten
  • Parabens
Recyclable packaging:
  • Frosted glass bottle
  • Aluminium screw top lid with EPE liner (remove this to recycle the lid)
  • FSC cardboard outer carton
  • FSC cardboard inner liner
  •  Is your Tonic 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.

Due to the AHAs in this product, you may feel tingling and redness when you first start using this product. If your skin is sensitive, dampen a cotton pad before applying the product, or use once a day so that your skin can adapt.

Everyone’s skin is different however, so we recommend doing a small patch test before using this to check that it suits your skin.

  • Is the range unisex?

Yes! It has been trialled and tested on men and women.

  • Do I need an SPF?
It is essential to use an SPF with this product during the day, due the AHAs in the product. This is a liquid exfoliant which introduces new skin to the surface helping with the overall appearance of the skin. You can read more on the importance of SPF here.
  • Where are your products manufactured?

Our products are manufactured in the UK.

  • What sets Lucy Bee apart from other natural skincare brands?

The ingredients we have used are all extremely effective.

Additionally, Lucy Bee is proud to have achieved so many great certifications for our skincare range. We pride ourselves on being clear and transparent with everything we do. By having these certifications, you can be sure that you are buying an organic, vegan, cruelty free, palm oil free product.

Lucy Bee Skincare has also been awarded the number 1 UK ethical best buy by the Ethical Consumer Guide. Their ratings take into account things like animal testing, human rights, climate change, environmental reporting, palm oil, company ethos, product sustainability, amongst many other factors.

  • Can my child/teenager use Lucy Bee skincare products?

Our Reviving Cleansing Cream and Radiance-Boosting Face Cream are suitable for children over 9 and teens. We do not advise our Dazzling Tonic for children. For teens with problematic skin, you can use this product on the area of concern, dampen the cotton pad with water, apply the tonic, then use on the area once a day in the evening.When using any new product we recommend doing a patch test first. See here for how to patch test..

  • Does your skincare range contain palm oil?

No. The reason our skincare range has taken so long to produce is because we instructed our manufacturers that we do not want palm oil or any of its derivatives in our products.

  • Do your products contain gluten?

No. Every Lucy Bee product is free from gluten as Lucy herself is a coeliac.

  • Is the range certified Vegan?

Yes, the entire range has been approved by the Vegan Society.

  • Is the range certified Cruelty Free?

Yes, the entire range has been approved by Cruelty Free International (Leaping Bunny).

  • Is the range certified Organic?

Yes, the entire range has been approved by the Soil Association as COSMOS Organic.

  • Is the skincare range certified Fair Trade?

We’re passionate about the ethics and value of Fair Trade and where possible, we always buy Fair Trade ingredients. With our skincare range, unfortunately it hasn’t been possible for us to be able to include sufficient Fair Trade ingredients to allow these to be certified Fair Trade.

Where applicable we use our own Lucy Bee Fair Trade ingredients, eg Coconut Oil.

  • Is the packaging recyclable?

We have done everything we possibly can to make sure our packaging is recyclable. The majority of the range is made from glass and aluminium so that everything can be recycled.

  • Is everything paraben free?

Yes the entire range is free from parabens.

  • 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 Radiance-Boosting Face Cream, Reviving Cleansing Cream and Dazzling Tonic are 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.

  • Are your products tested on animals?

Absolutely not. Our products are all certified by the Vegan Society and by Cruelty Free International who both ensure that animal testing is not carried out.

  • How should I store my products?

We recommend storing your skincare products in a cool, dry cupboard. We also recommend washing hands before using the products to avoid contamination.

  • How long will this product last?

Once opened, this has a shelf life of 12 months.

  • Are your products suitable for eczema sufferers?

Everyone is different so we wouldn’t like to say that they are definitely suitable for every eczema sufferer.

The range 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.

  • I have acne/am prone to breakouts, should I use your products?

Obviously everyone’s skin is very different so people may have different reactions to things. This product is part of our hydrating range and if you are worried then we recommend doing a small patch test before using the products properly.

  • How can I share my testimonial with you?

We’d absolutely love to see how the skincare range has worked for you. If you’d like to share it on social media then please tag us @lucybeeskincare, otherwise, please leave a review on our shop.

  • What does dermatologically approved actually mean?

You’ll notice that a lot of products say that they’ve been ‘dermatologically tested’ – this usually means that the products have been tested by a dermatologist. However, that’s all. You don’t know if they’ve passed testing or if they were any good for certain skin types.

By saying we have been dermatologically approved, we can confidently say that a dermatologist has used and approved that our products are suitable for sensitive skin. Obviously, we're all different so we recommend doing a patch test before using if you have any concerns.

  • When should I do a patch test?

When using any new product we recommend doing a patch test first. See here for how to patch test.

  • Can I return my packaging to you to be recycled?

Unfortunately, we don’t have the capabilities to do this just yet. As we grow, we hope to be able to offer it. Until we can, you can recycle the majority of the packaging in your household recycling.

  • Where is your skincare available?

Currently, our skincare range is only available at our online store.

  • Are your products safe to use during pregnancy? 

Our Radiance-Boosting Face Cream, Dazzling Tonic and Reviving Cleansing Cream are all safe to use if pregnant.  

  • Does this product contain nuts?

Our Dazzling Tonic does not contain nuts.

  • Is this suitable if I have rosacea?

The range has been dermatologically approved for sensitive skin and has anti-inflammatory properties such as turmeric, which helps with reducing redness. The range also contains aloe vera, coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter and apricot oil which are all very 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 the products have 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.
