Honeybee Gardens - Cosmetics & Beauty Supply

Review by Lisa VanWilliams
Since 1995, Honeybee Gardens has been operating to, "Create pure, all-natural bath and body care products made from only the finest organic ingredients, offer them at a reasonable price, and treat every customer like a friend." Author and herbalist Melissa Buckley started mixing batches of aftershaves back in the 90's for her husband because he was sensitive to store bought brands. She eventually stumbled upon a winning combo and developed her first product, the Herbal Aftershave.

Now, they offer a full line of organic cosmetics and beauty supplies. They do not test on animals, and they are PETA certified. They are also vegan and made with non-GMO ingredients. They company is based out of West Reading, Pennsylvania.

Items they make:

  • Eye Shadows
  • Mascara
  • Eye Liner
  • Lipsticks
  • Lip Liner
  • Lip Gloss
  • Pressed Mineral Foundation
  • Watercolors Nail Enamel
  • Handmade Soaps
  • Herbal Aftershave
You can view the full product line, learn more about the company, and order here:

They sent me the Ninja Kitty Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow to check out. It's really nice pale pink with a slight shimmer to it. A natural looking glow. I also tried the Truly Natural Lipstick in the color Paradise. It has a slight shimmer to it and it's a light neutral pink. I really like them both. Try layering the shadow to get more longevity out of it. These are really nice products, and I would recommend to try out when if get the chance. 

You can find the Honeybee Gardens at most Whole Foods in Connecticut. Check the store locator to find the closest location to you, and call to make sure they carry what you are looking for specifically:
