Gilchrist & Soames BeeKind

December 28-30, 2012, the boy and I went to Portland, Oregon for a short (and tax-free) trip.  In the corresponding haul post, I mentioned that our hotel gave these as their complimentary toiletries:
  • Gilchrist & Soames BeeKind Shampoo
  • Gilchrist & Soames BeeKind Conditioner
  • Gilchrist & Soames BeeKind Shower Gel
  • Gilchrist & Soames BeeKind Body Lotion
  • Gilchrist & Soames BeeKind Skincare Bar

The samples are generous, at 30 mL each.

They all have sort of the same scent.  It smells like Canada Dry ginger ale with a wedge of fresh lime; fresh citrus scent with a bit of gingery spice.  The BeeKind line is supposed to contain honey and certified organic extracts of red clover, calendula, lemongrass, and chamomile.


  • clarifying
  • leaves the hair a tiny bit dry
  • doesn't lather up much

    Would not purchase, nothing special


  • light formula
  • doesn't leave hair feeling greasy

    Would not purchase, nothing special

Shower Gel:

  • very nice and refreshing
  • not very moistuizing
  • not drying

    Would not purchase, nothing special

Body Lotion:

  • super light formula
  • very fast drying (I don't need to wait around before dressing)
  • no grease or residue on skin
  • keeps body moisturized until next shower

    Loved it, all time best body lotion. I'm looking into buying it. It's decently priced at $15 USD for 8 oz.

Skincare Bar:

  • typical of hotel soaps
  • a bit drying

    Would not purchase

Apparently, all of these are part of their BeeKind Jet Set Travel Pack.  It's $12 CAD if you wanted to try out any of the products in this post.

I noticed that they have a Zero% line, where there's zero sulfates, zero parabens, zero phthalates, zero artificial colours, and zero animal testing.  I'm interested.
