Bonajour Propolis Serum: A Buzzworthy Skincare Essential!

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.


Propolis Serum

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.

        Propolis: A resinous substance produced by bees, has several positive effects when used in skincare. It contains flavonoids and other compounds that can help reduce inflammation in the skin. Propolis is also rich in antioxidants, which can help protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals. Additionally propolis has humectant properties, meaning it can help attract and retain moisture in the skin. This can contribute to improved hydration levels and a smoother, more supple complexion.

        Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract: Derived from the leaves of the tea plant, offers several positive effects in skincare: it has Antioxidant properties, Anti-aging benefits; it’s soothing and calming and it’s also known for its anti-acne effects.

        Salix Alba (Willow) Bark: It is derived from the white willow tree, has positive effects in skincare due to its natural salicylic acid content. It acts as an exfoliant, helping to unclog pores, reduce acne breakouts, and promote smoother, clearer skin.

        Saccharomyces Ferment: A yeast-derived ingredient, offers positive effects in skincare. It enhances the skin’s natural barrier function, helps improve moisture retention, and promotes a smoother and more balanced complexion. Additionally, it may have soothing properties that help calm and reduce skin inflammation.

My impressions:

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!
