It’s been a long time since I’ve shared a Facemask Friday post. The reason for this will be made clear shortly.
Way back in august I attended the #bigbloggersconference, organised by London meet-ups. If you fancy reading about that then I posted about it here. Whilst attending the brand exhibit as part of this event I was very fortunate to be gifted the Silver Bee Venom mask £55 for 30ml alongside some other heaven skincare items by the lovely Deborah Mitchell, founder of Heaven Skincare.
Considering the price tag attached to this Facemask I wanted to ensure I gave this a substantial testing period before I wrote a review about it. I know I’d be rather miffed if I read a review that wasn’t accurate just because the product was ‘gifted’ and the article rushed to publishing.
Two months down the line I have had enough use of the facemask to form an opinion about the product and feel happy to share my honest opinion with my readers.
First up let me tell you a little bit more about the Silver Bee Venom Facemask.
The mask contains ABEETOXIN (bee venom) that works naturally to help control facial muscles providing a lifting, tightening and firming effect whilst actively reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
This claims to provide a natural and safe alternative to Botox Injections (sourced from toxic botulism).
So what did I think about the facemask?
From a packaging point of view it is stunning. The packaging is truely luxurious, it reminds me of a pearl encased in an icecube. It very is reassuringly weighty to hold in your hand.
The mask itself is very rich and creamy and has a light floral scent. When worn on the skin it has a slight tingle though this is not uncomfortable in any way.
You can actually use the mask daily as a moisturiser in the evening should you wish. I however have opted to use the more traditional mask method wearing it for about 15 minutes once a week before rinsing off.
Now down to the nitty gritty. Does it work?
I have definately noticed a marked improvement to the appearance of my forehead. I usually have a visible vertical crease between my brows from squinting (I really should stop being vain and wear my glasses more). This is no longer visible, as long as I continue to use the mask.
When I skipped a week through laziness the effects had worn off and that tell take line started to reappear.
This isn’t a permant fix then, but with prolonged use of the facemask you will continue to see it’s effects.
Is it worth the money?
It pains me to say this, as I don’t like pushing pricey products on people but I do actually think this is worth the £55 price tag. When you consider how much Botox injections are and that you will get a good 5/6 uses out of the mask (used how I have) then yes it’s worth it.
Put it this way I’m going to have to start saving my pocket money to replace this when it runs out as I will miss it.
Have you tried this face mask before, what was your experience?
