- You will need to use an additional moisturiser as it isn’t very moisturising
- Unlike some other bee venom masks it’s scent is disappointingly bland
best cream i’ve ever tried, 24 Jun. 2013
It can be used as either cream or mask and I use it as cream, every time after cleasing.
My skin is kind of sensitive but it leaves the skin soft and fresh, and I love it!!

Considering that this bee venom cream contains manuka honey, lavender and jojoba, you’d expect a very nice scent. Unfortunately, Abeeco bee venom mask doesn’t really smell of anything.
It has a non-greasy texture that is absorbed well and quickly into the skin without leaving any residue.
If you’re using the product for the first time it’s recommended that you do a patch test. This is done by applying a small amount of the product to a section of you face, leaving it on for 20 minutes to see if you have any adverse reaction.
Provided you don’t have a reaction you can then use Abeeco bee venom mask as either a cream or a mask.
Using as a mask: Massage into your face a generous amount of the mask onto your face and neck, twice daily, leaving the mask to site for 20 minutes before removing it.
Using as a cream: Apply a thin, even layer of the mask to your face and neck in the morning, massaging it in gently as you go. Once this is done, you can apply your usual moisturiser as normal. In the evening, use the product as described for using it as a mask.
Manuka honey: It’s a natural ingredient with anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory, which help to keep the skin healthy and to protect it from microbes and infection.
