We will do pretty much anything for our skin, right? Rub mud all over it, shave it, exfoliate with diamonds, and I even heard there is a slug facial lurking around somewhere.
But what if I told you that bee venom was the next revolutionary ingredient in skincare? The science behind it makes sense. And you can find that special golden ingredient in Venofye skincare.
Bee venom fools your skin into thinking it has been stung (it doesn’t hurt or feel like anything at all, I promise!) Your skin starts to produce more collagen, and your face looks tighter and more youthful as a result.
I’ve been dedicated to using the products Venofye sent me to review a little over a week now. I must say I’m pretty hooked. I love the way my skin looks without makeup, which is kind of a new thing! I listed the five products I used and ranked my favorites down below.
Besides the gorgeous packaging (that I doused in honey to shoot) these products really do work. I specifically tried the Queen Bee line, although Venofye has a lot of different product lines for differing skin types.
QUEEN BEE FACIAL PEELING. This cleanser is somewhat revolutionary. You apply it to dry skin (I take my makeup off first with a cleansing oil) and massage it into your face in a circular motion. The dead skin just starts to come off! You can actually feel and see it with your eyes. It is pretty amazing. When you rinse, your skin becomes baby soft and looks so rejuvenated!
I use it twice a week in the evening to get a deep exfoliation. And since I’m taking off all the dead skin, all the night creams that I use afterwards have the chance to penetrate and work even better. If I had to choose just one Venofye product, this is definitely my favorite.
QUEEN BEE VITAMIN C SERUM. This serum is SO soft. I apply a tiny amount after I wash my face, both morning and evening. It soaks into my skin immediately like an oil, but it smells and feels a little bit like honey. I kind of wish I could rub this serum all over my body. After the peeling wash, this is my second favorite.
QUEEN BEE DAY MOISTURIZER. This moisturizer is really light, which is something I like in a daytime moisturizer. I also noticed it brightens my skin. I like that it comes in a pump bottle, because who can be bothered to slow down in the mornings. Plus, a pump avoids the spread of bacteria since you’re not sticking your fingers or a spatula into a jar.
QUEEN BEE OVERNIGHT THERAPY. I’ve never used a separate cream for the night time and day time, so this was a first. But now I see how a more heavy duty evening cream can transform how you look when you wake up. I rub this on my face and neck in the evening, and my skin just soaks it up while I sleep. The last few mornings when I have looked in the mirror (I used to avoid the mirror in the mornings at all costs, haha) I noticed more even-ness and a general radiance.
ROYAL JELLY BEE EYE FIRMING CREAM. Although the eye cream isn’t part of the Queen Bee collection, I really wanted to try it. There is A LOT of product in this 1 oz jar. I only use a teeny bit, and it hardly looks like I’ve made a dent. The eye cream is packed with good stuff like caffeine, shea butter, vitamin E, and green tea, which makes you look more awake and diminishes any puffiness.
I don’t typically have issues with puffiness, but long hours make me look tired. My under eyes definitely feel smoother and there are less lines after a week of use! I also like to apply a little on my lips at night, and they have been happy and moisturized since doing that. I freaking love this stuff.
If I had to choose just three of the Venofye bunch, it would be the facial peeling wash, the serum, and the eye cream, in that order. Although all of the products are really pretty amazing. And be sure to check out Venofye on twitter for fun bee facts 🙂
