Manuka honey has long be lauded for its super healing abilities. Aiding in the treatment of colds and sore throats, it has more recently started to find its way into skincare. Beenigma is one such company who has not only harnessed the power of manuka honey, but has combined it with Purified New Zealand Bee Venom to create a skin cream which has quickly developed a cult following.

Beenigma Face Cream is a deeply nourishing face cream with naturally powerful ingredients that promote younger, smoother and firmer looking skin. The bee venom causes the skin to act as if it has been very lightly stung, increasing the production of wrinkle-smoothing collagen and elastin.



I must admit, the thought of putting venom on my skin did leave me a little concerned, but after reading the amazing reviews from satisfied customers on the Beenigma website (1,500 reviews and counting!) I was soon convinced to give it a go.

The formulation is thick so if you like wearing light moisturiser during the day, I recommend only applying it at night. After a few weeks of use, I certainly noticed a change in my skin. It felt plumper and my hydrated. Fine lines were also noticeably diminished.

A bit more research into the brand, showed that the venom they used is purified and extracted in ethically sustainable practices which does not harm the bees. The cream also does not include any parabens which is great for those worried about hidden nasties.

Priced at $124.95 for 50ml, Beenigma isn’t the cheapest anti-ageing cream on the market, but when it comes to skincare, the age-old adage of you get what you pay for tends to ring true. So if you are looking to invest in a product which will help combat the signs of ageing, it is worth giving Beenigma Face Cream a try!
