Fleur & Bee Skin Care Products: An Honest Review of This Clean Beauty Brand

Clean Products and the Ultimate Luxury Experience at Affordable Prices

Our skin endures a lot over time: the scorching sun, the wrecking wind, the dastardly dirt, and much more. Our skin works its hardest to protect the rest of our bodies, but sometimes it can use some care and protection itself. There is a plethora of skincare products on the market advertised with all kinds of promises of “clearer, fresher, and younger looking skin!” How are we supposed to know who’s telling the truth?

One surefire way is to try the products ourselves. Fortunately for us, I recently got to try some of Fleur & Bee’s skin care items: their Prince Charcoal face mask paste, their Just Dew It serum, and their Crème de la Cream moisturizer. Here’s how it all worked out for me, and here’s what you should know before you buy.

What’s the Deal With Fleur & Bee?

Fleur & Bee prides itself on “taking better care of ourselves, our skin, each other, and our planet.” The brand makes it clear how clean it wants its products to be: It excludes all parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones, GMOs, artificial fragrances, gluten, dyes, and other potentially harmful ingredients from its skincare products. It’s also Leaping Bunny™ certified cruelty-free. All of the formulas are 100% vegan, and the brand goes out of it way to make more environmentally responsible decisions, from packaging to using 100% wind energy in its factories.

While it’s easy to assume all of this results in some very fancy and very pricey skin care, Fleur & Bee has another goal: To “offer the best clean skin care products on the market for under $40.” Can any one skin care brand truly offer all of these perks and affordable pricing? We’re about to find out below.

How Do These Products Work on Our Skin?

First, wash and dry your face before applying any of these products. For the mask paste, scoop some out of the jar and thoroughly cover your face and neck. Keep the mask on your face for at least eight minutes before rinsing it off.

Next, squeeze the top of the dispenser for the serum bottle, then remove it and squeeze out some serum. From there, dab a light layer of serum across your face and neck. Once you’re done with the serum, grab the moisturizing cream, scoop some out, and generously apply it across your face and neck.

What Do I Like About Fleur & Bee Skin Care?

  • It feels great on my skin: I can definitely feel it while I have it on my skin, yet it never feels too abrasive or too much like I’m being stung by something.
  • It apparently provides noticeable results: After using it for a couple of weeks, I went out and received some compliments about how “well rested” I looked — even after a couple of nights when I didn’t get much sleep.
  • It’s easy to use: As long as you follow the instructions on the containers, you shouldn’t have any trouble figuring out how best to use Fleur & Bee’s products on your skin.
  • It all looks, smells, and feels very high-quality: From the look of the jars and bottles to the scent of the items as you rub them onto your skin, Fleur & Bee’s products compare well to the high-end brands you find at luxury beauty shops and department stores — but without the high-end luxury prices.
  • When they say “clean beauty,” they mean it: Over the years, we’ve become accustomed to the horror stories of beauty and grooming products that were cruelly tested on animals, made from petroleum and other fossil fuel byproducts, and made with the kinds of chemicals that we don’t even feel comfortable seeing in our cleaning products. In contrast, all of Fleur & Bee’s products are 100% vegan, Leaping Bunny™ certified cruelty free, manufactured in 100% wind-powered factories, and packaged in 100% recycled post-consumer waste paperboard.

What Do I Not Like About Fleur & Bee Skin Care?

  • The products are small: The jars and bottles tend to be on the smaller side. That may be a good thing if you plan to travel with them, but it might not be so good if you were hoping they’d last for a while.
  • That’s it! I honestly can’t think of any other drawbacks.

When it comes to skincare, moisturizer is one of the most important tools in your arsenal. The right product can promote a healthier skin barrier, protect against premature signs of aging, and help reduce pesky issues like redness and flaking. Although plenty of budget buys work just as well as luxury products, finding the best moisturizer for your skin type can take some trial and error. Over time, this can add up — both from a financial perspective and in the form of countless wasted products in your medicine cabinet.

Though finding product samples used to be relatively straightforward, many retailers have cut back on their formerly generous policies in the post-pandemic world. For many, subscription services are the solution, offering affordable new grooming products on a convenient delivery schedule. You may remember when Dollar Shave Club hit the skincare scene, providing high-quality razors directly to consumers at prices that put drugstore offerings to shame. Fortunately for those facing moisturizer-related woes, a new company has emerged to provide a similar service specifically geared toward simplifying skincare for men: FixUp. Ahead, we’ll fill you in on everything you need to know about the novel startup.

How to remove sunscreen from your skin and clothes, according to experts
You know you need to put sunscreen on. Here's how to take it off.

The importance of sunscreen cannot be overstated, especially during summer when the sun's rays are at their strongest and people are inclined to spend more time outdoors. We have no problem remembering to slather sunscreen on your face and body before a day at the beach, but we shouldn't skimp on sun protection prior to other outside activities like a jog at the park or brunch al fresco. We should also be reapplying sunscreen every two hours — or more frequently if we're working out and sweating a lot.

Unfortunately, layers of sunscreen can make our skin greasy and prone to breakouts. Reapplying SPF can leave stubborn stains on our clothes, too. Yes, these are valid annoyances, but they're not reasons to ditch sunscreen altogether, especially since the alternatives to going sans sun protection are much worse by comparison. These risks include a painful sunburn, irreversible wrinkles, and an increased risk for skin cancer.

Moisturizer is an essential skin care product, whether you prefer a pared-down routine or one with a laundry list of steps. Dermatologists typically recommend applying it twice per day, every day, to keep skin well hydrated and reduce the likelihood you’ll need to contend with pesky issues like dryness, redness, and flaking.

"I tell my patients that using moisturizers twice a day, like brushing their teeth, helps maintain skin health because moisturizers are designed to protect our skin barrier," said Elaine F. Kung, MD, a clinical assistant professor at Weill-Cornell Medical College and dermatologist with Future Bright Dermatology.
