If there was talk to replicate the effects of Botox without a needle, our interest would be permanently piqued. Bee Venom claims to do just that. Dubbed the nickname Beetox, word on the street is that Bee Venom is used by the Duchess of Cambridge herself. So we asked ourselves, in our Carrie Bradshaw-esque narrative: If it’s good enough for a Princess, was it good enough for us?
Bee Venom, when mixed into a cream, mask, or serum, actually tricks your skin into thinking it’s been stung, causing it to tighten as a defense mechanism. And as we know, the words tighten and skin together are the magic combination.
So how does it work? Bee Venom is a shadeless liquid deposited by a bee when it stings. But rest assured, cruelty-free Beauty lovers; Beetox is harvested in humane ways with no reason to kill a bee to yield its venom. In addition to tightening, it’s also a helpful anti-inflammatory aid, and also helps with inflamed (read: cystic) acne.
Is there anything it doesn’t do?
