Am I one of the few that should not take bee products?

HI Angela,
I posted on facebook but want to make sure you get this question. For the last two months I have used your products and loved them. I love how natural everything is and the great benefits of bee products.
I take bee pollen, royal jelly and the GLA skin oil (don't think thats a bee product) every morning and wash my face twice a day with the bee pollen soap. I apply the so ho mish cream as well whenever I wash my face. But here's my problem:

Every single time I use the cream my face stings and stings for about 5-10 minutes after, leaving it feeling tight and soar. My acne has unfortunately become much worse these last few months, leaving me breaking out every week or so. I am getting frantic here. The reason I started with bee products was for my skin, but do you think I am allergic? I cant think of any other reason that my skin is not getting better- actually it's worse.
Please let me know what you think. Does this mean I have to stop using everything? Or maybe just my soap and cream?


Hi Sarah,
Why don't you stop using the soap and cream and see what happens for a week. If your skin clears up and feels better, than we know it is one of the products you are using. Let me know how it goes!

My acne solution
by: Anonymous

Hi, Ive had acne for a long time and only manage to control it last year, its now almost always clear I just have to clean my face once every night. My skin type is 'oily' and the thing i use has different names, somtimes sabun soap or Luarel soap. It should look like a cube and greenish/brown colour. It works really well because the main ingredient is olive oil which creates a natural barrier on the skin. Just an tip that ive found works whening cleaning my face, splash first with hot/warm water, then clean, then splash with Cold water, then dry face with towel. warm water opens pores while cold water closes the pores.
hope this helps
