I am sure you have heard of the wonders of snail mucus and snake serum for your skin. Now, there is a whole new craze over “bee venom” which is apparently the beauty secret of Kate Middleton, Victoria Beckham and Kylie Minogue. How much more exciting can this sound?
Thanks to Sample Store, I had the chance to try the Wild Ferns Bee Venom Face Mask. Wild Ferns is a household brand in New Zealand and Australia. This bee venom range has already gained popularity in these countries. On my recent trip to Fiji, I transited at the Sydney International Airport and saw a whole range of bee venom products!
I really love the packaging!
There are so many bees on the inner packaging. 🙂
What is in the bee venom?
Bee venom is a combination of chemical substances produced by the worker and queen honey bee which helps to defend the honey bee colony. The venom contains 18 active compounds which have pharmacological properties to human skin. Bee venom contains a number of unique low-molecule peptides and “miracle” enzymes such as Phospholipase A2 and Hyaluronidase. These enzymes dissolve the skin membrane to improve skin penetrability of different active ingredients, thus helping in anti-aging.
Bee venom also contains a peptide called Melatin. When bee venom skincare product is applied, your body reacts like it has been stung, stimulating the skin to produce collagen and elastin. Combined with the skin boosting benefits of Manuka Honey, these key ingredients achieve the perfect balance to assist in the natural enhancement of the skin.
Benefits for skin
To sum it up, bee venom assists in boosting the skin’s natural activity, encouraging increased circulation, collagen and elastin production, helping to firm and plump facial tissue for a smoother, youthful looking skin.
This product also contains Premium Certified Manuka Honey 80+, Royal Jelly, Green Tea, Lavender Oil, Avocado Oil, Vitamin E, Canola Oil, Shea Butter and Menthol to bring about extra benefits to your skin.
Please remember to do a skin patch test before use. You can apply some on your hand first and followed by the neck area just below the ears (I usually do patch tests on two areas just to play safe). If there aren’t any rashes or swollen patches thereafter, congratulations! You can continue to use it on your face. [Note: This product is HSA approved.]
Apply evenly on your face, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 20 minutes then gently wash off. You can use it on a daily basis for more noticeable results.
Let’s see the results on my hand~
Though the mask looks thick and rich, it is easily absorbed into the skin and it smells really good! Contemplating buying the hand cream so that I can apply it all day long. ❤
Here’s the results after 20 mins.
I love washing my hands and as such, they often get pretty dry and scaly. After applying this Wild Ferns Bee Venom Face Mask on my left hand, it looks much brighter and it feels smoother and moisturised when I compared both my right and left hands. It is less wrinkly than before too. Thanks Wild Ferns and Sample Store for such a great product. Will be using it daily for smooth, young and moisturised skin! ❤
For all my readers, free samples for this bee venom product is available on Sample Store here. You can make use of this opportunity to do a patch test before you purchase the product! 🙂
