Nip + Fab Bee Sting Fix Range


A while ago I was invited over to Nip + Fab HQ to learn more about the brand and to have a play with some of the products from their range. A couple of products that I was kindly given to test out were from their Bee Sting Fix range.
 
Now, let's talk about the name first of all. The active ingredient is bee venom. This might sound a bit scary but I assure you it isn't! It does say on the packaging not to use if you are allergic to bee stings, but as the active ingredient it tricks the skin into believing its been stung, which causes it to plump up and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Smart huh?
 
I've been using these quite a bit recently so thought it was time to share my thoughts with you. First up is the Bee Sting Fix Eye Cream*. I have quite sensitive eyes which means I'm a bit picky and cautious when it comes to any new eye products. There was no need to worry though, this rich hydrating cream has really helped add some moisture to my under eye area and I've been using less concealer and corrector. I've also found that my foundation is setting less in the small creases too, which is something I've always had an issue with. The cream is very hydrating but not all heavy which would be the last thing you'd want under your peepers! What I also like is that this is an affordable eye product at £14.95, as most effective eye products seem to be in the £30+ bracket which isn't do-able for everyone.
 
I love to treat my skin to a mask a couple of times a week, so the Bee Sting Fix Lifting Mask* called straight to me. As well as plumping up wrinkles the mask aims to lift the contour of the face. It also contains propolis extract which is really well known as being an antioxidant, antiseptic and helps heal the skin - perfect for my recent horrid breakout! I've been using this once a week and I find it quite refreshing to use as its a nice and thick gel formula. Afterwards my skin feels nice and smooth and plump. I haven't noticed any lifting or firming to my skin yet unfortunately, but then I don't have any noticeably slack skin just yet.
 
What do you think about this range? Are you tempted to try it?
