Manuka Doctor Purified Bee Venom & Manuka Honey Skincare Review!*

So the lovely people over at Manuka Doctor were kind enough to send me some samples of some of their amazing products! I was super excited as I have had Manuka cream before but never with purified bee venom! (Sounds scary but it’s not!). I know that Manuka honey has a wide range of health benefits for skin and body and I love to try things that will make my skin feel healthier, so I waited patiently for the post to bring these exciting little samples for me to review and when I got them I was over the moon with joy! 🙂

I got two little boxes with three sachets in one and three mini tubes in the other, the first box with sachets contained apiclear Skin Treatment Serum, apinourish Rejuvenating Face Mask and apirefine Targeted Wrinkle Filler. The front of the little box states that the apiclear Skin Treatment serum is clinically proven to significantly improve blemish prone skin in just three weeks whilst the apinourish Rejuvenation Face Mask states purified bee venom is clinically proven to help skin’s elasticity and lastly the apirefine Targeted Wrinkle Filler mentions that it is clinically proven to reduce wrinkles in just 30 minutes! The second little box was slightly different to the first as it contained three mini tubes, one Rejuvenating Face Mask, one Age-Defying Serum and one Restoring night cream all containing Manuka honey and purified bee venom.

Firstly I tried the apiclear Skin Treatment Serum as I have had terrible skin in the past and a week or so ago I had a spot or two (Eeek!) on top of that my skin easily scars after spots vanish so I thought that this would be a good serum to try first. The little sachet lasted me a good few days and the serum is not at all greasy or sticky and dries relatively quickly which is excellent! It smells rather nice as well which is always a bonus when buying beauty products and creams. After a few days using the apiclear Skin Treatment Serum I did notice that my there was something different about my skin, I wasn’t sure what it was to be exact but my skin just looked healthier and a lot better!

I went on to try the Rejuvenating Face Mask both in the tube form and the sachet, I loved this sample especially as the face mask was easily applicable to the face and was refreshing as well. I used the face mask nearly every day or so and eventually I did indeed run out of this one the quickest out of all the samples because I was using it often, but it did leave my skin feeling soft and also really clean – which I love when I buy face washes!

As for the Restoring Night Cream I used this frequently every night as well since the sample arrived in the post and it has been such a nice cream to put on before bed. I usually hate night creams, I hate how they’re mostly all greasy or smell strange but this one is different, it smells beautiful and it’s thin and applies easily and also dries quickly which are all factors I love about any sort of cream especially night cream! 🙂

The Targeted Wrinkle Filler and Age Defying Serum are both products I have never tried before, I am young still (I’m 20) and wrinkles are something I don’t have to worry about for a while however judging by the quality and efficiency of the other samples I bet this would also be a great buy! But I will keep them and at some point in the future when I need them most I shall try them also.

On top of all this I am super happy that all these products do not harm the bee’s in anyway, shape or form as mentioned on their website here: http://www.manukadoctor.co.uk/purified-bee-venom 🙂

I’d love to thank Manuka Doctor for sending me some excellent samples and I am definitely going to be buying some of their skincare range in the future!

4 Ways To Beat Tired Eyes

Okay so we all have those late nights right? You may have to work night shifts, you may be someone who goes out clubbing every night without fail or maybe you’re just nocturnal to say the least! Whatever the reason we all get tired looking eyes and sometimes this can be a real problem – especially if you have an interview or seminar the next day and don’t want to look as if you’ve been out on a all nighter! So when I get tired eyes there are a few ways that I make sure they disappear and fast! I’m going to share them with you 🙂

  1. Cucumber – I never liked using this before because I didn’t think it would work, that and the fact that I hate the smell of it as well and being  a student I’m not going to waste a pound on a smelly vegetable but I did and I am happy about it because it refreshes my eyes. After reading a glowing article on the magic of the cucumber I went and brought one, cut it and placed it over my eyes and napped for a good 5 hours…Now I’m pretty sure that combination of napping and the cucumber worked because my eyes looked normal and a little healthier afterwards! Plus it was very relaxing.
  2. Garnier Caffeine eye roll-on – Something which I used to use ages ago when I was back at home and my mum had some laying around or in a make up bag. It’s like a caffeine shot for your eyes but a little better I guess. The moisture is nice when applied to the bottom and top of your eyelids and once it soaks in it feels lovely.
  3. Cold Water – Generally when I wake up and feel all icky and sleepy still I love to just splash my face with some ice cold water, it’s refreshing but make sure the water is not to cold no one likes brain freeze!
  4. Eye Drops – Now some people are against these and some are for these but it’s down to personal opinion I guess, I’ve used two different types of eye drops and the first one was nice a small bottle that was mostly purified water but it never really changed the redness of my tired eyes however the second one I used is also a small bottle but its got salt in it and stings, however this one clears the redness from my eyes. So when picking one just make sure its legit.

Well I hope that helps if you guys have tired, puffy or red eyes after a late night 🙂
