Review: Honeybee Gardens pressed mineral powder!


Back when i was 18 i was a liquid foundation girl now hurling towards my 30’s and rather fast might i add I’m a converted powder girl.

I recently ran out of my rather conventional Maybelline fit me pressed powder, what a horrid product, it broke me out it dried up my face and i won’t even mention the rest. Trying to be good with the whole spending i was determined to use it up before i bought anything else.

On my hunt i was looking for a talc free product, i came across the Honeybee Gardens pressed powder, talc free, paraben free, fragrance free & oil free. It seemed like a good choice and just like that within a few days it was on my face, quite literally.

There are 8 shades available. I bought the shade Geisha, which is the lightest for pale peeps like myself. I find this product goes a long way. On application be careful not to stab your kabuki brush into the product with force or you may end up in a powder storm. Apply a little at a time and build it up. I’m amazed by the coverage, i haven’t even been using concealer which for me is always a must. I’ve had breakouts over the last few months with detoxing while transitioning to a vegan lifestyle and this product has covered the redness beautifully. It has great staying power, evens out my skin tone and blends perfectly. At a cost of £5.06 + £1.99 (for shipping) off Amazon i think i bagged myself a great bargain!

If you follow me on Instagram you will see i posted this below picture whilst i was away in York. Nothing but the Honeybee Gardens pressed powder and a splash of Lily Lolo eyeshadow on for a casual evening out (I was trying to let my face breathe excuse the boiled egg eyes).


All in all for the price this is a fantastic product i would definitely recommend. I actually think it has taken over my Inika mineral foundation (for now anyway). Before i forget, the powder can be bought as a refill (this is what i purchased) to go in the eco-friendly compact which I’m yet to purchase 🙂 both versions are available from Amazon.
