Skin Chemists | Bee Venom Facial Oil

Hello My Lovelies,

I hope you are all doing well and are having a fabulous Monday so far. The weekend literally just flew by…there is not enough time in day haha! There is nothing i love more than one a Sunday than having a good ol' pamper session to get me ready for the following week to come. I was sent some Skin Chemists skincare goodies and i have really been loving incorporating them within my skincare routine as they are raved about brand from celebrities such as Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss and more. They all look absolutely amazing so i jumped at the chance of giving them a try. 

At first when they mentioned to me Bee Venom i was a little on edge because usually a Bee sting injects the Venom into your skin causing more harm than good right?! You can click here to check out the in-debth sciene behind the range and also watch a testimonials video. 

Skin Chemists Bee Venom Facial Oil is a revolutionary product, it contains real Bee Venom as the active ingredients, to produce a fantastic, noticeable, anti-wrinkle effect. It is the first of it's kind, fusing the efficacy and potency of the proven results of Bee Venom with the luxury and comfort of an oil, it provides skin-tightening, toning and brightening benefits. Something I have always read and have learnt from older generations is that you can never start too early to banish those pesky wrinkles we are all bound to have one day…sobs!

The Bee Venom in the formulation increases blood circulation, and the movement of nutrients between the levels of the skin, firming and plumping the skin to reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles. It contains Manuka Honey, which deeply nourishes and moisturises the skin, leaving it soft and fresh. Combined with Alpine Rose Stem Cells to help prevent the loss of collagen within the skin, and to prevent damage to the tissue, increases the vitality of stem cells in the skin. Almond and Bassabue Oils are vital ingredients, they have a huge range of benefits and are rich in Linoleic Acids, and Vitamins A,D and E. Linoleic Acid, which is also know as Vitamin F, is an essential fatty acid which regenerates and moisturises the skin. The Almond Oil traps moisture in the skin, keeping it moisturised all day long. Something we all need during the cold winter months right?!Vitamin E gives the facial oil emollient properties, which enables the oil to be absorbed into the skin.

Bee Venom has developed itself something of a Royal fan club from when Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall began using it prior to her wedding to Prince Charles, she then subsequently passed on her secret to Kate Middleton before her own wedding. This has resulted in an avid celebrity following of the Bee Venom trend, with the likes of Victoria Beckham, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Moss, Tulisa Contostavlos and Naomi Campbell favouring Bee Venom to maintain a flawless complexion. 

The Facial Oil officially launched last Tuesday 21st January 2014 so you can now purchase it from the website. I have been using it for around a week now and i think it is such a luxurious product. I apply one drop to my hand and then i gently massage it into my face and neck. Skin Chemists recommend wearing it alone or under a moisturiser, so i did wear it under my makeup a few days last week to test it out and it felt weightless and it did keep my skin moisturised. The only negative thing is the price, £98 is quite steep for a 15ml facial oil, however you only need one drop for you entire face so i feel it would last you a very long time. However, the lovely team at Skin Chemists have given me a discount code for you all, if you use the code 'BEEOIL2014' at the checkout the Bee Venom Facial Oil can be yours for £29.99 - which seems like such a better price!

I hope you all enjoyed this review! Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you all and i make sure to read every single comment…they really make my day!
