I was recently selected to be a tester on Jolse.com for the Hope Girl Honey Bee Venom Multi solution Cream. I usually not a big fan of honey products as I don’t like the smell of honey. So when I was selected to be a tester for this cream I was a bit skeptical as to how it was going to be. I have oily/combination skin and I wondered if this cream will actually suit my skin or not.

Availability: You can buy it from Jolse.com . A Korean skincare and beauty products site which I really love shopping from as they don’t charge shipping have amazing deals and always give nice samples but more on Korean skincare shopping later.
Packaging: It comes in a hexagonal shaped box which resembles a honey comb something which I found really attractive. I liked the bright yellow packaging as well. It’s just so pretty to look at. The cream comes in a plastic tub which has an extra lid for protection. It’s a sturdy travel friendly packaging.
Smell: Now this was something I was really worried about since I don’t like how honey smells. But to my surprise it doesn’t smell like honey. It has a very sweet smell but it’s nothing like honey it’s a bit more fruity smell. It smells amazing in short. It doesn’t last and isn’t strong but it’s noticable when you apply it and I find it really nice. To be honest I was really delighted that it didn’t smell like honey. That was the first thing that made me like this cream.
My experience: I’m from India and if you have been here or you live here you will know how hot, sweaty and sticky the summers here get especially in Rajasthan which is the desert state of India. Another reason to be skeptical of honey products right because honey is so sticky. Imagine my surprise when this cream turned to be nothing like I imagined. I was worried that it will make my skin sticky, will smell bad and generally just won’t work for me but none of those things happened and I’m glad that I was proven wrong. This cream is more jelly like in Texture. It’s very soft and smooth and absorbs like a dream and the best thing it’s not sticky especially on my oily face in Indian summers. Just that proves how amazing this cream is. It’s lightweight and doesn’t feel heavy on the skin at all.
I applied it twice a day in my morning and evening skincare routine for two weeks and it didn’t break me out, it didn’t make my face oily or sticky, it absorbed easily and I didn’t have to pat it in, it mositurised my skin without making it greasy and gave an overall fresh look. I wasn’t expecting anything from this cream so I was really surprised that I ended up liking it so much. I have gifted it to my mom now because she needed a mosituriser and I knew she will love this as much as I did and I wasn’t wrong.
- Only a small quantity is required as it spreads easily so this tub will easily last for months even if used twice daily.
- It’s non sticky
- It is really light weight in texture
- It smells amazing
- It absorbs easily
- It didn’t break me out
- My mother loves it ( it’s a pro because she is usually very critical of creams so to get her seal of approval on this means something)
- Works well in Indian Summers
Cons: Frankly I can’t think of any. I’m really satisfied with this cream as it went beyond my expectations and worked so well for my skin.
Overall : 4/5
Will I repurchase: I will as my mother loves it.
Do I recommend: Yes, it’s a good cream and worth a try if you like trying new products like I do or are a fan of products with honey in it.
