Bee Venom Day Cream from Cougar Beauty

Bee Venom is being raved about in the beauty industry recently. It's being hailed as the next best thing in skincare and is apparently the secret to Kate Middleton's wedding day glow. Bee Venom is an active ingredient which works to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. How? Well the Bee Venom actually tricks the skin into thinking it's been stung, which in turn increases blood circulation to the area and stimulates the production of natural collagens and elastin resulting in a plumper, smoother surface.

Sounds slightly scary doesn't it? When the lovely people from Cougar Beauty asked if i'd like to try their Bee Venom Day Cream* I was slightly apprehensive but far too curious and intrigued to turn it down. Also, Cougar Beauty is a brand that's completely new to me and I always love trying new brands, especially ones that aren't as well known as others out there.

This cream is to be used just as you would any other regular day cream, avoiding the eyes and mouth. They do advise to open the pores with warm water before hand, ensuring that the product can really work into the poors for maximum effect. If you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know that I've been struggling with my skin for the past couple of months (damn pregnancy hormones), but I think I can finally say it's starting to go back to normal after giving birth 3 weeks ago. I've been using this cream for the past week in place of my regular moisturiser and I can honestly say I've noticed a difference in the look of my skin. It hasn't corrected my dry skin issues around my chin (but nothing was helping until I started using my beloved Rosehip Oil), but in terms of the plumpness and smoothness of my skin I have definitely noticed a difference, especially around my eyes. I've started to get fine lines around the eyes now (none of us are getting any younger tbh), and I think this has helped in reducing the appearance of these bad boys. I don't find myself feeling quite as depressed when I look in the mirror now, lol. In terms of formulation, it's lightweight, but not too lightweight for my dry skin. My skin feels well hydrated after using it and I find my makeup applies nice and smooth over the top.

I think, for the price (£24), it's definitely worth a try if you're as intrigued as I was to try Bee Venom. It's certainly a cheaper alternative to the £150 a pot Rodial Bee Venom Day Cream that all the celebrities are buzzing over.
