Tucked away on a peaceful cul-de-sac, the Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm is Cavite's well-kept secret.

For those in the know, the farm is one of the best harvesters of honey, beeswax, pollen, royal jelly and bee venom from their own honeybees for the past thirty years. Farm visitors are also treated to a one-of- a- kind specialty store filled with exceptional hand-made products from these five active ingredients.
One of their bestsellers is the Honey, Propolis and Beeswax Lip Balm created to soothe wind-burned, cracked, dry and bleeding lips. It is made from beeswax mainly for its moisturizing effect, Propolis Gold for disinfection, Virgin Honey for its emollient properties and an array of fruit oils.
What I love about it:
* I love the fact that it is made from natural ingredients such as honey, beeswax and propolis.
* I love the minty cool sensation on my lips.
* It's really effective in treating dry and cracked lips in just one application.
What I don't like:
* The container breaks easily which explains the cracks in the photo. Since the balm is really effective, I simply transferred the contents onto another container of better quality.
The 16 gram jar of the Honey, Beeswax and Propolis Lip Balm is available at the Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm Specialty Store in Silang, Cavite for Php 71.50. For more information about this product visit the Ilog Maria Website.
