There seems to be a buzz (excuse the pun) in the skincare industry at the moment around honey. Therapi launched late last year (2013) and is becoming increasingly popular. Therapi offers timeless organic skincare which is 100% natural and certified by the Soil Association.
Therapi focuses on the therapeutic benefits of honey, propolis and bioactive plant extracts to nourish the skin. Therapi's products feel like they are of exceptional quality.
Honey has been used for thousands of years and has recently become a trend in the beauty industry with many brands going back to basics by using amazing ingredients like honey. I lovely Therapi and would like to add that they give 5% of their profits to bee conservation projects which I think is amazing.
Therapi currently has three lines to suit different skin types:
Rose Otto - for normal to dry skin types
Orange Blossom - for normal skin types
Lemon Myrtle - for oily to combination skin types

Results and review
This is a wonderful rich cream and has a luxurious texture which sinks in the skin beautifully. It is comparable to the Dr Hauschka Rose Day Cream with the way it is scented and the way it feels on the skin. This is described as a treatment but is a moisturiser suitable for everyday use. If you have dehydrated dry skin this moisturiser will be perfect for you. It provides a lot of barrier protection with the use of bees wax and rich emollients like shea butter and coconut oil.
This moisturiser contains organic rose hip oil, honey, sunflower oil and aloe vera which all deeply hydrate and rejuvenate the skin. It also contains super anti ageing organic propolis extract which is a resinous material that is collected by bees and has anti bacterial and anti inflammatory properties on the skin. Propolis also enhances collagen production resulting in a more youthful complexion.
My skin looks beautifully radiant and glowy after use. Although rich it feels really soothing and helps with sensitive skin. During winter this was a god send for me as it really protects the skin against the cold weather and winds. You only need the smallest amount and it is super concentrated and it lasts ages. Earlier in the year I used this everyday during the cold weather and now the warmer weather is here I have started using it as a hydrating mask. It quenches my skin's thirst and I can feel my skin just drinking in this gorgeous moisturiser.
Whether you use this a daily moisturiser or a treatment it will give you gorgeous glowing skin. I think it is a star product of Therapi's. Even if you do not have dry skin you can still use this a treatment in the way you would use a hydrating mask, just don't wash it off. I prefer to use this during the day time so the hydrating effects last all day long. I find it best to apply to the skin after toning when skin is damp to make this concentrated moisturiser go even further.
This smells similar to the cleanser of the rose otto range, it smells lovely, sweet and floral and has organic rose otto and rose geranium essential oils to give it a delicious sweet rosey-honey scent.
The packaging is just stunning, I absolutely adore Therapis use of elegant packaging. The white glass adds a true sense of style and pureness.
I cannot fault this beautiful moisturiser. I urge anyone with dry skin types to try it. I can see why this is one of Therapi's best sellers. I am going to give it a 5/5 rating because this really works. I would definitely buy this moisturiser again.
