I’m getting older, okay so we all are but do we always need to show our age?  I think not!  With modern advancements in beauty products it’s amazing what you will find on the market.  I am quite enjoying a cream at the moment from Skin Doctors; Beelift.  These guys have some lovely beauty products and I discovered them and their wonderful products many years ago when I was in my teens (over 20 yrs ago now – ssshhhhhhh don’t tell anyone).  The beelift is paraben free, bee friendly (no bees are harmed during the extraction of the bee venom) and not tested on animals.  Parabens are preservatives which are used in many beauty products and although there is no concrete evidence as of yet they have been linked to fertility issues and breast cancer.

The Skin Doctors beelift has been created to help fight against premature ageing using a combination of  Bee Venom, Manuka Honey the collagen treatment Trylagen® and Hyadisine® the later two being a complex mix of peptides, amino acids, proteins and key enzymes.  Combined the ingredients mimic the effects of those of a bee sting without the resulting redness and pain.  In their place it stimulates an increase in natural collagen in the skin and the result is to give the skin a plumper and rejuvenated appearance.

Beelift is clinically proven to:

Increase Collagen by up to 300%

Cumulative skin tightening

Plumping and firming of the skin

The packaging is simple and straight to the point.  They don’t try to confuse you with complicated jargon on the box, the information is concise and easy to understand.  The product itself – the super light cream has to most gorgeously addictive fragrance I have smelt in a while.  The aroma comes predominantly from the manuka honey and I found I just couldn’t get enough of that sweet honey scent and I found myself smelling my hands after application.

I had to get pretty close to the bee to get this photo and I am terrified of them – the things we do for work (she says shaking at the knees). 

Imagine my horror when this happened – I will add I didn’t knock it or go any nearer as I was no way getting that close.

Fortunately I didn’t need to change underwear but I came pretty close!

The cream is quickly absorbed by the skin and is non greasy.  It leaves the skin feeling velvety soft and silky smooth.  The Beelift is perfect for normal to greasy skin.  If you have very dry skin you might require an additional application or may want to combine it with a moisturiser.

On the box the product is claimed to “control facial muscles for cumulative tightening, lifting, plumping and firming of the skin.  Skin Doctors beelift is clinically proven to triple the formation of collagen in just 7 days and increase cell renewal by 80% in just 15 days, leaving your skin looking brighter, firmer and visibly younger”

Of course the question on everyone’s lips is does it work?

I have noticed a difference in the brightness of my skin.  There was an improvement in the speed of healing which shows that the skin is being well nourished by getting the nutrients it needs also resulting in an improvement in the rate of healing and the appearance.  I can’t comment on the wrinkle reduction as I haven’t been using the product long enough for this.

The only negative thing I would say is that I would have preferred if this had come in pump form allowing for easier dispensing and also better control of the amount used.

Have you tried any Skin Doctors products yet?  If so which products and what did you think of them?

Disclaimer: A sample of the product was sent for my consideration.

  1. Bee skincare seems to be all the rage at the moment, I’ve known them work really well for some people, but patch testing is always a must just in case.

  3. Bee venom makes the product sound a bit scary but I suppose it is a much better alternative to all the nasty chemicals we usually put on our skin.

  4. Sounds fantastic, I’ll do anything to keep looking younger but I once tried Burt’s bee lip plumper lipstick and it really stung my lips so I don’t think I’d risk trying this xxx

  8. You made me LOL with this post! I am so glad you didn’t need to change your pants! 😉 On a serious note though, it is so frightening to know that there are correlations between parabens and preservatives and issues like fertility! I am always on the look out for natural products, and this is a great find. x
