This is my 4th post in my what the heck series, and today I am going to be talking about Bee Venom and the benefits of adding it to your skincare routine!
Now if you are a friend of mine you probably think I would be the last person that would add this to my skincare regimen as I am scared to death of bees!
While I know honey is fantastic to add to your skincare routine as it is loaded with antibacterial properties and packed with nutrients and healing compounds all of which can help your complexion. Bee venom shares some of these same qualities, plus some other added anti-aging benefits.
The Many Benefits Of Adding Bee Venom To Your Skincare Regimen
"The advantage of adding Bee Venom (Apitoxin) to your skincare to routine is its ability to trick the skin into believing that if you have been stung, thereby increasing the production of collagen and blood circulation," says Natalie Zinder, a product developer who works with Venofye. This rush of blood may also help the skin's appearance and lead to a gentle plumping and tightening sensation that will diminish the signs of aging. And if that wasn’t enough Bee Venom is also known to be comprised of 21 naturally occurring components such as enzymes, amino acids, and peptides.
So, if you want to find out what the BUZZ is all about by adding “Nature’s Botox,” AKA Bee Venom to trick your skin into thinking it’s been stung which causes it to plump and tighten continue reading.
For this post, I partnered up with Venofye, one of the brands capitalizing on the power of bee venom. Venofye sent me some products in their Queen Bee Collection, which consists of a moisturizer, Vitamin C serum, facial peel, and eye cream.
Now, I’ve been using these products for about two weeks and while at first I was a bit scared to try them as I am allergic to bees I was interested in the effectiveness of these products, and I must say that I am loving them.
Venofye Queen Bee Facial Peel
First up is my all-time favorite in this skincare line, the Queen Bee Facial Peel. This stuff is the bee’s knees! It literally slothes off your skin which you can visibly see when using it. The first time I used it I was like that can’t be my dead skin cells, as I am such a big proponent of exfoliating, but sure enough, it was. While it is intense, it is gentle on the skin, leaving my skin feeling refreshed, brighter and rejuvenated. I am hooked on this product and will most certainly be adding this to my weekly skincare routine.
Venofye Vitamin C Serum
The changes our skin has over the years requires a great skincare must-have product, and for me, it is the anti-aging superstar, Vitamin C serum! You see, the younger we are the more vitamin C we have in our skin. But as we get older our skin changes, aside from natural aging and stress, we are also exposing ourselves to tons environmental factors!
Some of these factors include dirt, dust, makeup, sweat, parabens and other products and preservatives that can severely disrupt our body’s natural processes, which leads to premature aging. However, by adding a vitamin C serum to your skincare routine, you can help protect our skin against these age provoking dangers.
And the remarkable thing about the Vitamin C serum from the Queen B collection is that it’s formulated with two forms of Vitamin C (Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate and Ascorbyl Palmitate). These ingredients combined with the bee venom further strengthens our skins durability, enabling us to achieve a better, healthy complexion as well as helping to reduce wrinkles and improve skin texture.
Venofye Day Moisturizer
This daytime moisturizer is lightweight and works in combination with the Vitamin C Serum. Due to the rare combination of ingredients in this moisturizer and the cost, I did not want to waste it. Hence, I applied it with my Michael Todd Beauty Sonic Eraser Pro as the last thing I want to do is to waste this fantastic moisturizer on my fingers.
I will tell you that with this moisturizer I could feel a tingly effect of the bee venom, but it left my skin with a luminous glow.
The Royal Jelly Bee Eye Firming Cream
It’s time to be treated like royalty and help get rid those designer bags, as I call them under my eyes with this eye firming cream.
This firming eye cream is formulated with some other excellent ingredients like caffeine, Shea butter, vitamin E and green tea all in which help to energize the skin under your eyes and diminish the look of puffiness and other issues you may have. This too I could feel some tingly and tightening when using, which to me is a plus, as I could feel it in action.
Now if Bee Venom wasn’t crazy enough, this skincare line has a special guest to join the bees… A snake! Now, no worries as there are no bites involved, but just snake venom, that can help in preventing and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. So stay tuned, as I will be sharing with you some details on this Viperlift product on my Instagram page!
So, there you have it another post in my what the heck series. And beauties, for those of you who want to feel like the younger queen bee, then come spoil yourself with the Venofye Queen Bee Collection!
Oh, and no worries there are no bees harmed while extracting the bee venom. Venofye is 100% animal-friendly and is entirely against any cruelty towards animals, and none of their products have been tested on animals.
