The Top Four Skincare Products You Shouldn’t Be Without

We’ve all got a favourite skincare staple, whether it be a nourishing cream, a radiance boosting serum or a moisture quenching oil….Here we lift the lid on our customer’s top four skincare products from Manuka Doctor….

First off is the Manuka Doctor Night Cream. Thanks to the highly moisturising properties of Mānuka honey and Aloe vera, this restoring night cream leaves skin glowing and naturally plumped, so you wake up to soft, supple, replenished skin.(1) Brimming with potent reparative extracts the Night Cream feeds your skin with peptides and vitamins. One particularly impressive ingredient is Hyaluronic acid, which can hold up to a thousand times its own weight in water, making it brilliant for hydrating the skin.

“Love this product. Visible results within a week. My skin feels amazing in the morning after using this cream.”

Collagen boosting Purified Bee Venom (PBV™) helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles(2,3), whilst cell regenerating Royal jelly and Rosehip oil rejuvenate skin by renewing damaged skin cells and boosting skin’s radiance(4). Hydrating Shea butter (5) and Avocado restore moisture to tired looking skin for a younger looking complexion.

“The best night cream I ever used. I always like to test other products but for more than 4 years I always seem to come back to this. Skin just looks perfect every morning after using it. Visibly reduces the fine lines.”
Anca N
“I absolutely love this cream. I have been trying to find the right cream for my skin for so long now and I can finally say this works great. It’s not too rich and has a great consistency and my skin feels amazing every morning! A little goes a long way too!”

Next up is the Manuka Doctor Eye Cream which has won many awards and has even been approved by the Good Housekeeping Institute!

Over 430 beauty testers trialled anti-ageing eye creams designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, as well as tackle puffiness and dark circles. Moisture levels and firmness was also measured over a four-week period.

The results…

“With clear instructions and easy-to-use packaging, most testers found this product easy to apply. 94% thought that the cream was easy to distribute evenly around the eye area and they were pleasantly surprised with how quickly the cream absorbed into the skin, leaving no greasy or sticky residue. 83% said skin felt much more moisturised after using the product and 69% said skin felt firmer after the trial period.”

This best-selling eye cream hydrates and soothes dry, tired eyes with the inclusion of Mānuka honey. The skin surrounding your eyes is more delicate than other areas of your face, which is why fine lines and wrinkles develop more easily. Collagen boosting Purified Bee Venom (PBV™) helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles (6) and a flavonoid found in citrus fruits helps stimulate surface circulation of skin to improve dark circles under the eyes, helping to lift a dull complexion and refresh tired skin. This thinner skin around the eye area needs some extra TLC so botanical silicon and oak skin tautening tannins are clinically proven to reduce wrinkles and fine lines(7). An advanced Octapeptide is clinically proven to reduce the depth of deep wrinkles around the forehead and eye area(8).

“Excellent eye cream really brightens underneath the eyes.”
Marsha V
“Fantastic eye cream my dark circles are lightening and no more puffy eyes or fine lines no tired looking eye area.”

Our third best rated product is the divine Cashmere Cream. This silky soft age-defying cream is enriched with a precious blend of oils, Purified Bee Venom (PBV™), Mānuka honey and Shea butter for cashmere touch skin. The advanced, luxurious formula melts into the skin and helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles, improve skin’s elasticity and smoothes and moisturises uneven skin tone. But don’t just take our word for it, amazing results were seen in a clinical trial of 30 women aged between 35 and 65 years old after 28 days of continuous use. In the short term, 70 per cent of the women in the trial noticed their skin felt firmer, more radiant and smoother, after just one application. In the long term, 97 per cent of the women reported a positive effect on skin firmness and elasticity after 28 days of use.(9)

“Smooth face cream, like silk on my skin; keeping it moisturised throughout the day with a delicious smell too!”
Evelyn C
“Cashmere Cream is by far the nicest moisturising cream I have ever used. So creamy looking, silky on the skin and has a lovely smell and leaves your skin feeling very soft. The quality is outstanding. Don’t hesitate buying this. You will not be disappointed.”
Nicola C


Last but not least is the Manuka Doctor Peppermint Foot & Heel Cream. One of our longest standing skincare products, this absorbent and refreshing lotion will have your feet feeling soothed and refreshed. Lovely as a treat at the end of a busy day, or as a pre-party pamper for dry or tired feet.

Key ingredients include highly moisturising Mānuka honey, Shea butter and Avocado to nourish and smooth dry, hard skin. Cell regenerating Royal jelly rejuvenates skin by renewing damaged skin cells. Rosemary leaf oil helps improve circulation to the foot area to reduce puffiness (10) and reduce tissue inflammation that can lead to swelling, pain and stiffness (11).

“I like the smell, my feet are very soft now. Dry skin is gone. Cold feet also gone. You can notice the results even after a week. The best cream.”
Ailwei M
“Love this foot cream. Having always suffered from sore cracked feet I was dubious this cream would work but it has, THE best product I've used. My feet are softest they've ever been. The texture is lovely and thick and smells amazing.”
Debie T
“My feet are like babies feet now.. my husband and I absolutely love it!”
Vendulka V

So for baby soft warm feet, buff those heels and toes then liberally apply Manuka Doctor Peppermint Foot & Heel Cream at night before bed. Put on a pair of thin cotton socks and by morning feet will appear nourished and refreshed.
