Bee YÜ Firming + Regenerating Face Masque - Bee Venom Beauty for firmer, radiant skin

Well... it's been a hot minute, guys since I posted on my blog!
I just haven't had the motivation at all and it seems like I got bored of blogging in general. 
Yet I can't seem to be able to quit it completely and have just renewed my yearly domain subscription and guess what, the £50 I had to pay to keep my domain and blog alive motivated me to create some content like nothing else, LOL!
I'm not saying that I stopped loving beauty, it's been just the writing process that I don't really enjoy that much, never been a writer really :)
But I've decided to give my blogging journey another 'go', I'm not promising to be posting regularly but I'm definitely not done with this hobby so you'll see some reviews and other beauty-related stuff on here hopefully few times a month.

A few months ago I was sent this bee yü face mask to try and because it's like nothing else I've tried before I thought you'd be interested to find out more about it.

bee yü is a natural skincare brand that celebrates the awesome regenerative powers of UMF20+ Manuka honey, ethically sourced bee venom and precious New Zealand botanicals. Their products utilize the best ingredients nature has to offer, including highly-prized Manuka honey and royal jelly. They use a high concentration of Manuka honey at 20+ UMF® (Unique Manuka Factor) in their skincare, which is only found in New Zealand. As well as honey, they use 100% pure royal jelly from New Zealand, rich in complex B vitamins, amino acids, fatty acids, minerals and enzymes, and ethically sourced bee venom, which stimulates natural collagen and elastin production, helping the skin to stay firm and plump.

bee yü feels indebted to the bees who make their potent ingredients, and as a business aim to support bee populations across the globe. The brand donates £5 from each sale of the Face Masque to the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and £5 from the Day and Night Crème to London’s oldest botanical garden – Chelsea Physic Garden.

Manuka honey can only be sourced from bees pollinating Manuka trees ‘Leptospermum Scoparium’ in New Zealand, which grows in very remote, wild areas predominately in the North Island. A natural antimicrobial that has been well documented and scientifically proven to stimulate the immune system, Manuka honey promotes healing and healthy skin by providing nutrients, vitamins and amino acids that boost cell metabolism. Naturally occurring acids help in the clearing of dead skin cells and drawing out bacteria and impurities from pores preventing breakouts. Anti-inflammatory properties also help to soothe sore and inflamed skin, while the honey’s natural healing powers help to neutralize skin’s PH levels and aid repair. Manuka honey is also known to help lock in moisture, leaving skin feeling hydrated, with a healthy glow.

Unless you have an allergy to bee stings, you are most likely not going to have an allergic reaction to the mask. If you have a known allergy to bees, then it's not recommended using this product.
If you have some other allergies, don’t forget to patch test first at least 24 hours ahead.

Key ingredients:

Bee venom
Ethically and naturally sourced New Zealand bee venom stimulates the skin by fooling it into thinking it's being stung. The skin goes into ‘repair mode’, creating increased blood flow to boost the production of natural collagen and elastin. Skin appears plumper, smoother and glowing.

Manuka honey
A natural antimicrobial, Manuka honey is packed with nutrients, vitamins and amino acids that boost cell metabolism, promote healing and help lock in moisture, for a hydrated complexion with a healthy glow.

Clover flower extract
A natural astringent, it decreases sebum production and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores, for smoother skin. It is particularly beneficial for combination, oily and acne-prone complexions. 

Swertia chirata extract
Swertia chirata extract or SWT/7 (Swertiamarin) is gently extracted from Indian gentian leaves. It stimulates the skin to promote regeneration and resurfacing and also reduces the appearance of fine lines, for smooth and supple skin.

Some tingling and redness after the application are normal since this is your skin’s natural response to the small concentrations of bee venom contained in the mask. Your skin may also feel slightly hot, but within a short time, this will fade leaving you with super plump and healthy-looking skin which feels intensely hydrated. I only experienced the tingling the first couple of times but it was very minimal and my skin never felt irritated.

Because of its powerful ingredients, this face mask is recommended to be used only once or twice a week, applied in a thin layer, (I use one pump of it) on a cleansed face and left for 10-30 minutes or as an intensive treatment, overnight. I prefer the latter as it really makes my skin look much plumper, firmer and more radiant in the morning, just as if I had a facial the night before. Perfect as a weekly pamper session and/or for special occasions to make your skin looks its best. 

Have you tried skincare with bee venom?
