Hello, fellow K-beauty enthusiasts! Today, I wanted to talk to you about the Bonajour Propolis Serum. Now, I know what you might be thinking – another propolis product? But what can I tell you. I’m like a bee to honey when it comes to these products, and I can’t get enough.
I mean, who doesn’t love putting bee spit on their face? Okay, okay, I know that’s not exactly what propolis is, but it still sounds a little weird when you think about it. But hey, if it works, it works! Some people might think I’m crazy for loving propolis so much, but I don’t care. I’ll be over here, slathering it all over my face. Because when it comes to propolis skin care, I’m a true believer.
So when I stumbled upon the Bonajour Propolis Serum, which not only contains over 80% propolis extract, but it also features Salix Alba (Willow) Bark Extract and Saccharomyces Ferment, I needed to get my hands on it.
So Let’s start!

About the serum
The Bonajour propolis serum contains an impressive 81.5% propolis extract. This natural ingredient is known for its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, making it an effective choice for improving the overall health and appearance of the skin.
The serum is advertised as being particularly beneficial for strengthening the skin barrier, moisturizing, and soothing. The high concentration of propolis in this serum makes it an excellent option for those looking for an intensive treatment to address specific skin concerns.
In addition to its propolis content, the serum also contains other nourishing ingredients like glycerin and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients help to hydrate the skin and improve its elasticity, resulting in a smoother and more youthful-looking complexion.
First look, texture and smell
This serum has a gooey, viscous texture that glides smoothly over the skin, leaving it feeling nourished and hydrated. Despite its thick texture, the serum absorbs quickly, without leaving any sticky residue.
One of the unique features of this serum is its transparent color, which is a change from the usual yellowish hue of most propolis products. Another noteworthy aspect of the Bonajour Propolis Serum is that it has a subtle, almost non-existent scent, which is great for those who are sensitive to fragrances.
This serum comes in a generous 100ml version, which means you’ll get plenty of use out of it before having to restock.
Let me begin by saying that this serum boasts an impressive list of ingredients and a unique gel-like texture. While it didn’t disappoint me entirely, I must admit that it fell slightly short in terms of moisturization compared to other propolis products I’ve tried. Nonetheless, it remains a solid addition to any skincare routine.
The Bonajour Propolis Serum’s standout feature is its remarkable formulation. Packed with beneficial ingredients, it aims to nourish and revitalize the skin. The gel-like consistency is lightweight and absorbs swiftly, making it convenient for daily use.
Unfortunately, in terms of moisturizing power, the serum didn’t quite meet my expectations. While it provided some hydration, I found that it didn’t deliver the same level of moisture as my preferred propolis products. However, individual experiences may vary, and if you have combination or oily skin, the lighter texture might be just what you’re looking for.
Despite not becoming my personal favorite, I still recognize the Bonajour Propolis Serum as a reliable product. It does offer notable benefits for the skin, such as soothing properties and potential improvements in texture.
Based on my experiences, I would rate it a:
So, thank you for joining me on this honey-infused journey. Remember to embrace the sweet moments in life, and may your skincare adventures be as exciting as finding a pot of gold (or in this case, a jar of propolis serum) at the end of a rainbow.
Until next time, stay bee-autiful and keep buzzing with joy!
