After years spent trying countless skincare formulas and fancy ingredients, I can say my skin never looks better than when I slather it in bee-made propolis. It gives an undeniable glow, even when my internal stress levels are at an all-time high. Ample internet denizens aged 60 and up agree: Creams like BeeFriendly's Simply Radiant Face and Eye Cream are spectacular. As one 72-year-old shopper said, six months of using the independent brand's moisturizer softened their under-eye wrinkles and evened out their skin tone "tremendously" — and another person seconded that their fine lines diminished so much after one application, they won't use anything else. Those results are typical: A 40-year-old said a week of use made their fine lines and wrinkles "nearly vanish," with the effects reeling in compliments from both friends and strangers. The $27 cream was their last stop before trying La Mer or SK-II, they continued, but the small company's formula makes their skin look so healthy, they no longer needed to splurge. Looking at the ingredients, it makes sense why people are head-over-heels for the moisturizer; it uses a combination of organic beeswax with pollen and propolis, raw honey, and vitamin E — all of which are top-notch for skin.

Fox uses and the CosRx serum that "sheds years off" shoppers' skin. As Byrdie reported, propolis encourages quicker skin turnover, decreases inflammation, and reverses UV skin damage, in part thanks to a bioactive compound called balsam, which offers antioxidants and polyphenols. The mix is so luxurious, even self-proclaimed estheticians who say they've tried everything are impressed, and others wrote that the cream does "miraculous things" — namely, leaving their neck and chest "smoother and firmer." Over two dozen reviewers highlighted just how quickly it works: A 64-year-old commented that it left their dry skin "immediately" softer, smoother, and more hydrated, so much that they keep touching it in disbelief. "It even improves the lines around my upper lip," a last user wrote. "Now, let's stop using/ban chemicals that kill off our bee populations, or it's curtains for all of us." They're not wrong. If you'd like to try the organic BeeFriendly Simply Radiant Face and Eye Cream, get it for $27 at Amazon.
