Fixing my Skin with Bee Venom

In this heat there is nothing more soothing than putting my feet in a bucket cold water and chilling with a face mask. My skin is all over the show at the moment and it seems to be in that icky stage between acne and ageing where i only a few short days a month without some sort of problem area on my face and given the current temperatures the last thing I can tolerate is heavy full coverage make up. I am riding the wave of making an effort with my skincare regime and I have really gotten into masks recently, sheet masks are an absolute staple because I am lazy and they are very easy to apply and don't require any clean up afterwards.

I was going to spare you a picture of me wearing the mask but here's a filtered one  (natch) afterall
This is a review of the Shills Hya-Dermis Bee Venom Mask* which I had the pleasure to try out this weekend. I spent an utterly blissful and serene half an hour with this bad boy on my face. This mask uses Bee Venom to lift and strengthen skin to reduce signs of ageing. Ingredients include Manuka Honey extract, Seaweed extract, Elastin and Hyaluronic acid are combined to improve skin elasticity and basically tighten the skin.

This mask has a couple of protective layers on it within the packet that need to be peeled off when you apply it. The official instructions are as follows:

Step 1 – Take mask out of the pack
Step 2 – Gently peel off the white plastic layer
Step 3 – Apply the mask evenly across your face and gently smooth mask to ensure good and even contact with your skin.
Step 4 – peel of the blue layer
Step 5 – Leave on your face for 15-20 minutes and gently peel it off.

I really enjoyed using this mask, it felt slightly tingly and totally refreshing and my face did look noticeably taught after use. It was the perfect prep for the full glam I plastered on for a night out and I can see it making the perfect addition to a sheet mask shopping list  for a busy girl's skincare routine. A precious few minutes to relax does wonders for my wellbeing so I wholeheartedly intend to make this a regular weekend ritual in my battle against premature ageing.

FYI-Shills state that the bee venom is humanely extracted from the poison sac of the bee and that no bees were harmed in the making of this, so I guess it is not vegan and most definitely not suitable for those with allergies to bee stings.  You can find it for only £1.99 on Just Beauty, they also do multipacks if you want to stock up.

  1. I do love a good sheet mask, especially in this weather! For that incredible price I'm definitely going to pick one up to try for myself.
