YOU Beauty Advent Calendar 2015 Review. Day 8.

I’m going to have to get back to you about today’s product in a week or so.

It’s an eye cream – Heaven’s Bee Venom Eyes (by Deborah Mitchell). This is a range apparently loved by famous types. Kate Middleton reportedly used Heaven Bee Venom products in the run up to THE big wedding.

This 15ml pot is worth a whopping £21.90 based on the RRP of the full sized version. Crikey O’Trousers!

Here’s the eye cream blurb:

Bee Venom Eyes is the latest product to combat signs of ageing with particular focus on the eyes.

Bee Venom Eyes also contains softening and calming Shea Butter, Rose and Lavender essential oils and River Silt* to feed the tissue, firming and tightening the skin, for an instant anti-ageing and rejuvenating effect.

This unique product has been specially created using natural and organic ingredients, combined to work in synergy for an instant anti-ageing effect around the eyes.

River Silt works with the enzymes of fish. The river bed collects marine collagen over hundreds of years, from fish enzymes, which gather in the river silt and help the skin by boosting collagen. River silt is full of amino acids and bentonite which remove impurities and toxins from the skin.

There are some crazily priced products in this range, such as the Black Bee Venom mask at £163 for 60ml, the (admittedly VERY exciting) 2015 Christmas gift set at £190 and the Gold Bee Venom Mask at £352 for 60ml. Yes – three hundred and fifty two pounds for a 60ml face mask!

As you can imagine, I have high hopes for this. It’s not something I can properly review based on first impressions though, so I’ll give it a go and get back to you next week.

My initial thoughts are that the packaging feels expensive, the cream smells divine (it contains rose and lavender so I was bound to love the fragrance) and sinks into the skin easily. Also, a little goes a long way which is important bearing in mind how much each drop costs!

I’m also impressed by the value of some of the goodies in this calendar. I’m not loving it quite as much as the LookFantastic calendar yet, but it’s early days.
