Apple & Bears Honey & Hemp Gift Set

I was so excited when I was accepted for the trial of the Apple & Bears Honey & Hemp body duo. This is a brand that I have not tried before, and with my love of natural ingredient body products, I was intrigued.

When my gift set arrived, I was thrilled with the packaging. The Body Silk & Body Wash are housed in a stunning, high quality sturdy box package that instantly spelled quality and the promise of something special inside… I will start with the Honey & Hemp Body Wash as this is the first product you use in your bathing routine.

Apple & Bears Honey & Hemp Gift Set

Apple & Bears is a wonderful family run UK based business and I was thrilled to note that 5% of all profits are donated to the charity Breast Cancer Care. The ethos of this company is clear to see even from the packaging!

The bottles are beautiful! They look classy, quality and make a beautiful visual addition to your bathroom. They are made of recyclable plastic in a block white with beautiful and intriguing logs printed on the front. The Body Wash bottle has a handy and practical flip top lid which makes the gel easy to dispense.

On the rear of the bottles is an extensive list of ingredients. Pure proof of what is in your product with no veiled or hidden ingredients. Honey is a well-known ingredient that has instant and effective firming qualities whilst hemp is a deeply nourishing, moisturising and protective ingredient. There is an impressive and extensive list of natural oils and minerals in this product that in combination have amazing benefits on the skin.

Apple & Bears Honey & Hemp Body Wash

The Body Wash has a surprisingly thick consistency which promises a quality bathing experience. It has a beautiful gold colour and the fragrance is stunning!! You can certainly detect the hemp, which is a fragrance that I adore and there are tons of juniper and citrus which in combination give a mildly heady, exotic scent that infuses the bathroom during bathing! This fragrance is definitely suited to both male and female tastes and my husband was also rather impressed with this unisex fragrance.

I always use a body puff to apply my product and it is always a true test of the concentration of a product. Many shower gels that use synthetic ingredients result in an overwhelming explosion of bubbles which whilst being a pleasant bathing experience, always causes concern for me as to how much detergent ingredients are contained within a product.

The Apple & Bears Body Wash creates thick, creamy bubbles that are completely different to a synthetic product. This is proof for me that the ingredients are quality and I am not applying nasty chemicals and detergents to my skin. My skin feels instantly cleansed and energised and the product wraps you in a soothing and exotic cocoon of fragrance! The foam is easily and quickly rinsed away.

After drying with a towel, you can truly feel and instant toning and tightening sensation on the skin but do not mistake this for dryness, it is by far the opposite. My skin feels toned but moisturised with a subtle fragrance of product remaining on the body. The gel is so concentrated you only need a small amount for a full bathing experience.

On the hair, I did not find this product as favourable as my hair requires deep moisturisation. As a quick fix, on the go product, it has great benefits of being a multitasker but I think this is better suited to my husband as a shampoo as he cares a great deal less about moisturisation of his hair. Saying this, I suffered no irritation from this product as a hair wash so it is a big thumbs up for the capabilities of this bottle.

Apple & Bears Honey & Hemp Body Silk

The Body Silk is housed in a practical and beautiful shatter poof bottle with a handy pump action dispense lid. This is perfect for an easy application and prevents over dispense of your product. At no time, has the pump clogged with product like some other lesser quality products can do.

The Body Silk has an indulgent medium thick consistency and pearly white in colour. Its fragrance is intriguing. I was expecting the same fragrance as the Body Wash; however, there is a combination of the same fragrance of hemp, juniper and citrus but with a nostalgic and simplistic tone of a generic un-fragranced body cream.

This is very difficult to describe in written words but it gives a feeling of the expected fragranced body creams most popular on the market but with a simplicity of a quality, non-fussy body product! I use 4 pumps of silk for my entire body and the cream is absorbed quickly and easily into the skin. A testament to a highly concentrated product! Once again you can feel a toning sensation upon application and your skin is left mildly fragranced and deeply moisturised. The moisturisation lasts throughout day with no dissipation.

In combination with the Body Silk the Honey & Hemp range most certainly does as it says on the bottle. You are not bowled over by overwhelming fragrance but you are treated to a very effective, toning, nourishing and indulgent bathing experience. I would not hesitate to use other options from this brand.

Throughout my trial, these products have proven their worth and I could not fault their performance in any way. All in all, I have developed a very fast love affair with these products. The price tag is high but the quality and quantity of the ingredients justify it. If you are looking for a high performance and high quality bathing product that uses only natural ingredients then I could not recommend this brand enough! As an addition to your own bathroom, or as a gift for a loved one, Apple & Bears have rocketed to the top of my list of quality bathing products.

A luxury body product range with visible benefits and quite clearly ‘made with love’
