Bio-Cellulose Bee Venom and Royal Jelly Mask* – £7.90
When I read about this beauty mask I was completely intrigued as it does actually contain bee venom. Bee Venom!? Apparently Bee Venom used to be used in ancient times to treat a number of conditions and now is even hailed as ‘natures alternative to botox.’ The face mask is said to ‘help smooth, lift and tighten the skin.’
I am all for botox, I’d love to have it done but can’t afford the price tag that comes with it. If I could find a cheaper alternative that would be the dream so I couldn’t wait to try out this face mask.
I’ve never ever tried a whole face sheet face mask before so the application was all new to me. It was really straight forward to apply and I followed the instructions on the packet to the letter. I think I slightly misjudged where my eyes were on the first attempt as the mask went on pretty wonky but it’s easy to peel off and have another go at it.
The mask was really gooey and felt all squishy and squirmy on my face, quite an odd sensation but not bad at all. I did feel like a right plonker with it on though but unlike other masks it didn’t dry hard so I could still talk properly and sip my cider… Win!
Here is the most bizarre selfie of me ever wearing the face mask:
I left the mask on for 20 minutes as 15-20 minutes was advised and I thought to get the full effects I’d go all out. No half measures here! I removed the mask and rubbed in any of the excess serum onto my face.
So did I notice a difference?
My skin definitely looks a lot brighter and more glowing. I really didn’t think it would have had any effect as I didn’t feel it working on my skin. My blemishes look reduced and my skin tone appeared so much more even than it has done in years! Overall I’m really impressed as I didn’t think it would have had much of an effect but it really has.
Priced at £7.90 I think it’s a little expensive for a casual pamper night in but before a big event or occasion to give your face that extra glow it is definitely worth it.
What type of face masks do you prefer.. Sheet masks or ones that dry hard? What effect do you normally try to achieve when using a face mask?
