Review: Wild Ferns Bee Venom Face Mask

Bee Venom? Honestly, I've never heard of these words before! Never! I'm a conservative person who seldom goes out and explore more on the other beauty products and normally sticks to a few brands that I'm familiar with. Hence, I'm so glad that Sample Store approached me to try out this new product from New Zealand.  

WILD FERNS BEE VENOM FACE MASK

The Bee Venom used in Wild Ferns Products are obtained through ethical and humane means. Wild Ferns® uses VENZTM (Venom New Zealand) Bee Venom in their products. VENZTM invented a collection device which does not kill the bees. This device conducts a gentle current over a glass sheet, the bees on the glass sheet will stick out their stingers and the muscle pushing the stingers will also pump a small amount of bee venom. The venom is then collected and purified for storage, ensuring the freshness and quality of the Bee Venom.

Bee Venom assists in energizing the skin's natural activity, encouraging increased circulation, collagen and elastin production, helping to firm and plump facial tissue for a smooth youtful looking skin. Combined with other skin improving natural ingredients, known for their deep moisturizing effects this face mask is all about treating yourself to the very best. Experience intense refining and softening with our ultra-luxuriant Bee Venom face mask designed to give more radiant appearance.

PACKAGING

Love the packaging of the face mask. The golden bottle-cap is gently carved in bee shape and bee venom wordings making the whole bottle look elegant and classic. It would be perfect if a spatula applicator was provided.


HOW TO USE

Apply evenly to face avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 20 minutes then gently wash off.
Use daily. Results will be achievable and noticeable after longer usage.
Do not use if you're allergic to the bee venom. Patch test is recommended before use of this product. Discontinue use if skin becomes irritated.



TEXTURE

The texture is a cream-type and it's white in color. It's creamy and rich, the mask will not dry off on the skin leaving skin slightly sticky. Once application, you may feel minty sensation but it will go off after a while.


MY THOUGHTS

The mask gave quite a strong minty sensation on my skin at the early stage after application. I was quite worried that my skin may be sensitive to the bee venom although I did a patch test earlier. Luckily, my skin cooperated well with bee venom. My skin felt superbly soft after first attempt and I absolutely love it. You may not see the visible results on the first try, so do continue to use.. as for me, my skin felt fairer and even softer on the second use. I can see that my complexion is getting fairer and my pores are getting smaller than before.

I love products that leave your skin feeling way softer and smoother. I've never heard of using bee venom before but I've heard of using bee wax!
