Honey, are you in for a treat! Have you ever considered your beauty routine might be lacking a vital natural ingredient? Honey. Did you know that Cleopatra was a huge enthusiast of Royal Jelly. HONEY. It all circles back to honey, natures most perfect sweetener. (Next to maple syrup). I would like to take a minute of silence to honour all of the bees that are working hard every day to make this essential ingredient in my life.
In all seriousness though, honey is incredible. Not only is it loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals it also has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities too. Basically everything you could possible want when it comes to taking care of your largest organ – your skin! That’s why I’m so excited about this latest collaboration launch: Guerlain Paris’ Abeille Royale Collection in partnership with Nude Bee Honey Co. I tried two of the releases, the Abeille Royal Repairing Honey Gel Mask and the Royal Abeille Youth Watery Oil in addition to the actual raw Nude Wildflower Honey. Spoiler alert: I loved all three. Here’s why:
ABEILLE ROYALE REPAIRING HONEY GEL MASK
This luxurious gel mask is for hydrating and plumping. It’s a low maintenance treatment as you let it sit on your face for ten minutes and then massage the rest in – no post cleansing required! And it only takes using it once or twice a week to see the nourishing results. It’s made in partnership with Nude Honey as well!
ABEILLE ROYALE YOUTH WATERY OIL
I think I have made my feelings known about all things “oil” in beauty products. I am a HUGE fan. The Youth Watery Oil absorbs quickly so you never feel “oily” and it leaves the skin feeling smooth and soft. Bonus: a little product goes a long way! There are two major ingredients at work in this serum: Ouessant Black Bee Honey and Royal Jelly – exclusive to Guerlain.
NUDE BEE HONEY CO. WILDFLOWER HONEY
Have you ever tasted 100% pure raw honey? There’s nothing like it. The taste is so sweet, I’m happy to consume it on its own. However, I would NEVER say NO to a baked chunk of brie to accompany it. I’m only human! Nude Bee Honey Co. was started in 2010. They are Canadian (yassss!) and dedicated to creating a raw product without articifial flavors or stabalizers. It’s not pasteurized and they never dilute the product with water either. A jar of their honey is JUST HONEY. How sweet?
