I’m bored of the London highstreet, especially as any summer products you do buy you can’t wear or use as the weather just doesn’t permit it. So I am looking further afield to my favourite Middle Eastern city to bring you the very best of Beirut’s beauty scene.
Let me introduce you to the beautiful Beesline brand… products with a simple but effective philosophy.
“It all started when a 21 year old chemist, freshly graduated from AUB (American University of Beirut), decided to start his own project in the cosmetic field. He started mixing creams for his mother and her friends with the help of his sister (PhD in Pharmaceutical studies) in a tiny room in the family apartment. Based on research in apitherapy, the medicinal use of honey bee products, the now famous Beesline beeswax LIP CARE was born. The product quickly found great popularity, with its natural/edible ingredients.The overwhelming success of the first few products extended to whole lines of care, literally from head to toe! Made from the best natural ingredients found in this resource-rich Mediterranean region, Beesline products are paraben, silicone and paraffin free and never tested on animals. Since the year 2000 Beesline instituted a state-of-the-art R&D department, with lab scientists developing formulas that bring healthy skin and hair. Beesline aims to offer the highest quality care, to solve the most difficult skin problems, offering different product for every type of skin.”
While blogging in Beirut recently, I met a couple of lovely Lebanese girls, similar in age to me. They commented on my neon pink bikini… I asked about their radiant golden skin. Living in a hot country they told me that they had tried every lotion and potion on offer, and their favourite, without doubt, was Beesline’s Gold Shimmering Suntan Oil. This amazing product helps you to achieve a durable and safe bronze tan as well as adding a soft glistening glow to your skin… so that you look your very best while on the beach!
I’ve now had the opportunity to try a number of the Beesline Sun Care products, and I’m totally in love with them. At last there is a brand that produces creams that not only protect your skin but make it look it’s very best in the sun.The tinted sunscreen with SPF 100+ is brilliant for your face in scorching heat and the cooling aftersun lotion calms skin after a day’s exposure. Then, of course there is the fantastic original Beesline chapped lips balm to heal and soothe and protect with SPF 15.
Where Beesline really excel is with their tan encouraging products. The Gelee Solaire and Suntan Oil are both rich in carrot oil, beeswax, wheatgerm, sunflower and nigella seed oil and help build up a natural long lasting tan. This magic combination of ingredients regenerates and moisturises skin while enhancing skin immunity. I was surprised to find that all the products smell delicious and leave your skin smooth and soft, without any stickiness.
Beg, borrow and steal to get your hands on these brilliant potions. I got sent a stunning golden box from Beesline, when my miracle products run out I don’t know how I am going to survive without them. I am praying every day that Beesline will be brought to London soon!
