I have personally shopped on VitaCost a lot in the past. (I used to use their referral program to build up credits and then purchase a bunch of house cleaning items, and other things that are typically expensive.) I've always been very happy with the products I've received. VitaCost always shipped relatively quickly and my items never arrived damaged, even if I thought the packaging was a little iffy. But really, what more could you want? The prices are fair and are typically less than the cost of the same item elsewhere and they have a HUGE variety of products always in stock ranging from beauty, to baby, to food, to vitamins and supplements, to your household cleaning goods.
I've been on a huge honey kick lately with everything so when the opportunity arose to test out some products that VitaCost carries, I jumped on the Worker B bandwagon. I requested the Worker B cream and the Worker B balm.
"Bee Collected. Be Nourished. Worker B."
Unfortunately these weren't my favorite products. It's not the fault of the product, but a personal preference. And hey, that's what happens when you try something new. Even as a blogger who is usually pretty satisfied with most things, I can't be expected to like everything all of the time. There are things I do really like about the Worker B products though starting with their ingredients.
The Worker B cream is made with ingredients straight from the hive that are handcrafted and don't contain any fillers. That's always a bonus. So many products these days have things in them that are more harmful than helpful. The Worker B balm is made with beeswax, organic olive oil, organic almond oil, organic avocado oil, raw honey, and propolis tincture. I've used other products containing all of these oils before and loved them, but they were in a product that wasn't quite so thick. However, they do work. At least in my personal experience. I also didn't read anything on the ingredient lists that said these were scented products. I could be wrong, but just by smelling them they seemed pretty natural and straightforward in that regard.
The balm and cream is definitely meant for extremely dry skin. They're both very thick, which is great for those who need that super strong moisturizing quality, and the cream can be applied all over your body - not just your hands or feet. However, I don't need that extra moisture and felt that it just kind of sat on my skin instead of absorbing. The cream can also be used on the pads of your furry friends. They get dry too esp. if walking a long time on hard pavement.
I do like the Worker B balm a little better than the cream. I've gotten more use out of it by using it on my lips, and Worker B says the balm is great for heat damaged skin. The balm is not anywhere near as thick as the cream, and while it's a little greasy, I'd definitely use it on my hands over the cream. It absorbs faster, feels less heavy, and doesn't leave a weird texture on my skin like the cream does.
The cream is a product that is great for those with sensitive skin, and I have a feeling the balm is as well. I'm personally a little bummed that these weren't my favorite products ever, but that won't stop me from being a fan of VitaCost. And there are plenty of people out there I'm sure would love the Worker B products. They're just not my thing.
