Natures intention to give to us never ceases to amaze me. Whether that is through nutrition or medicine, there is nothing more beautiful to me than nature giving to us, helping us take care of our own bodies. The latest buzz in skincare as many of you would know is bee venom. Bee Venom was made popular by celebs like Kate Middleton and Gwyneth Paltrow who credited their glowing skin to bee venom facials and injections.
Essentially bee venom is a defense toxin that contains peptides and aids in the production of elastin and collagen. It has been used in ancient medicine for hundreds of years and has more recently made its way to skincare. The venom helps to increase blood flow, plumps skin and helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
The team at Venofye sent me some of their best selling products to try and I have to say I’m quite impressed. Here’s a list of what I’ve been trying and the benefits:
Queen Bee Neck Lift – Infused with rich and beneficial ingredients to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and smooth the look of loose skin along the neckline. The Queen Bee Neck Lift leaves your neck looking and feeling tighter. I have to say I was certaintly on the hunt for a neck cream (hello, early 30’s) and I’m glad I came across this product to help tighten this area.
Orchard Bee Elevating & Balancing Mask – This mask is formulated with ingredients such as DMAE, Bee Venom, Vitamins A (Retinyl Palmitate) and E. It is designed to target your main anti-aging concerns and give you a more youthful and radiant appearance. I’m absolutely loving how this mask wears on my skin and makes my skin feel! I’ve noticed how much tighter my skin gets and how much more supple it feels right after. Definitely using this once a week!
Queen Bee Vitamin C Serum – A powerful serum formulated with two forms of Vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and Ascorbyl Palmitate) this serum will leave your skin feeling soft and looking radiant. Using a Vitmanin C serum is very important in the anti-aging process and benificial in combating skin damnage and skin discoloration. I ALWAYS use a serum of some sort and this one is a powerful one indeed.
Royal Jelly Bee Luminescent Eye Serum – This eye serum is designed to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles surrounding the eye area. Rich, yet quickly absorbed, this eye serum was formulated with Bee Venom, Palmitoyl Oligopeptide and Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) to help reduce the signs of aging. Going back to how bee venom is increases blood flow and aids in the production of elastic and collagen – this serum is super helpful in doing all sorts of magic for the eyes.
Royal Jelly Eye Beelift – This is Venofye’s most powerful eye treatment! The Royal Jelly BeeLift was inspired by state-of-the-art technologies to immediately help in de-puffing the eye and lifting any under eye bags! I was so skeptical when I first heard about this product, but I was wrong! The transformation from eye bags to dare I say “botox” is truly insane! Because of its intense properties, you can only use it once a week. Make sure to save it for your weekend date nights or those very important meetings when you need bring your A-GAME.
I have to say the biggest difference I’ve noticed in my skin is how much more plump and supple it looks. The entire range of the Venofye Queen Bee collection is meant to plump your skin, leave it feeling nourished, aid in the reduction of fine line and wrinkles and smooth out any unevenness.
The entire range is suitable for any type of skin, but make sure you are not allergic to anything bees/bee venom. Also, a super important note for me was that no bees go harmed in the making of these products – very crucial! Venofye states on their site that “bee venom is collected using a glass sheet which encourages the bees to pump out a small amount of venom into the glass. This sheet is then removed from the beehive and the venom is sent for purification. The bee continues with its normal life because stinging the glass doesn’t force it to lose its stinger. Collecting bee venom is neither stressful for the bees, nor is it harmful.”
