There’s one thing I usually shy away featuring on my website and that’s facial skin care. Mostly because I find it so prescriptive to each individual, I don’t feel best placed to tell you what to buy, I can only share my experiences of having hypersensitive dehydrated skin.
With that said, one product has been earnings its keep lately and that is the Manuka Honey + Bee venom facial serum from Beetox. Priced at £45 for 30ml
I have been using the serum on a night time, just before bed. I thoroughly double cleanse my skin, apply a dash of Hydraluron then layer on the serum. I find this to be more than sufficient for my skin to keep it replenished and plumped. I have been using the serum for a few weeks now and I am absolutely loving it. I can particularly tell the difference on my forehead and around by eye sockets. The skin just looks a bit fresher, a bit more ‘alive’ and as someone else worded.. juicy. Not sure if that’s worrying or not !!
The honey provides an anti bacterial, almost medicinal layer to the skin which can help a wide range of skin complaints. The Bee venom penetrates the layers of skin to tackle those age wrinkles (I don’t have any yet!) and fine lines.
My sensitive skin has not flared up at all since using the serum which is fantastic news for all you sensitive skinned ladies out there. I have not had any breakouts since using this either, touch wood, its obviously doing my skin wonders.
I have found the serum to be light and it’s as though you can feel it nourishing the skin as it sinks in which can’t be a bad thing. I personally don’t use this product during the day but there is absolutely no reason why not, it would be perfect for under make up as it doesn’t leave you greasy or tacky. Thanks to the handy pipette, you can also apply directly to your face without using too much product.
The only mild downside I can find for this product, and I am nitpicking here is the smell. I don’t like anything honey related or royale jelly scented. I hate it and this is very very similar and while it did initially put me off, its not an offending smell. And for the results, I am more than happy to put up with it for a couple of minutes every day until it dries down. Husband is a proper honey monster and he likes the smell, so just use this as a word of warning.
As with all honey and bee related products, please please do a very small patch test on your skin to see if you are allergic before you apply to your face as I’d hate for my readers to suffer reactions!
As I love the Beetox Manuka Honey + Bee Venom Serum so much, I have 1 bottle to give away to one of my beautiful followers.
