Bee Venom. That’s right. The idea is that the venom (extracted with electric current without killing the bees) lightly stings the skin, stimulating it to produce excess collagen and elastin, allowing the skin to plump up, therefore reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Sounds logical right? But does it really work? I too was curious. I mean, I myself am not quite 30 yet either. But when the big THREE OH is knocking on your door, it does so loudly and persistently. So with this in mind and the fact that I must admit until now to being a ‘soap, water and Olay’ kind of gal, I decided it could be time to start ‘taking care of myself’ and Bee venom? Why not? I’m worth it. Oh and it helps that I could snap it up on Grab One for 50% off!
I was so curious. Would it do anything? Or will I break out in some weird rash? - It does warn against people with bee allergies not to use this product, though I am not one of them (that I know of!) After I had purchased it online for $59.00 I started to worry. 'Oh crap, I've gone and bought this stuff and I bet I’m gonna puff up like a fricken blow fish. Damn it! What was I thinking!’
Luckily that didn’t happen. My parcel arrived after a few days and I was pleasantly surprised. My 65ml pottle of Bee Nigma bee venom cream was oh so pretty. There it was in it’s nicely wrapped box, along with a note thanking the buyer for their purchase (how polite). Ooh and it looked so cute in its glass jar. I took off the lid and had a sniff. Phooo! It smelled good. Like floral honey. Now, this kind of takes points off for me though. I have a sensitive nose you see, and I tend to sneeze if things are too pungent (my partner is the same and he constantly complained about my ‘stinky face cream’). And, as a rule I prefer my face creams to be fragrance free.
Anyhow, when I came to applying the cream I was pleasantly surprised. I didn’t turn into a blowfish. I couldn't even feel a tingle. The cream went on so nicely and soaked right into my skin, unlike cheap and cheerful Olay, which tends loiter on the surface of your skin, giving you the illusion of moisture.
As the web site advises, Bee Nigma is an accumulative formula. This is true. The more I used it the more amazing my skin looked. I became addicted. I started to use my Bee Nigma every morning and night. I waited to have some kind of allergic reaction but thankfully it never happened. I have somewhat sensitive skin and have reacted to skincare products in the past, but I didn’t once react to this cream in all the months I used it for. All that happened was this: my skin looked great. My mother even commented on how good I looked, which was amazing considering I had a naughty baby who was not sleeping much at all.
When I finished my 60ml jar of Bee Nigma, I managed to snap up another from Grab One again. Hooray! I thought! This way I can keep using bee venom forever, without having to pay full price! No such luck! A few months into my second jar my four year old son decided to make ‘ice-cream’ with most of my beauty products. Needless to say, I am no longer using Bee Nigma. But everyday I check Grab One to see if it is on sale for 50% off!
So clearly, the Bee Venom Buzz is legit. I recommend it. And if I could afford it, I would totally pay full price for the stuff!
