*do not use if you are allergic to bee stings*
Manuka doctor's apinourish repairing skin cream is a new concept to my skin care routine. What is so different about this is that it contains bee venom. At first I was a little put off by this as I am a vegetarian and wasn't sure how this was done without harming the bees. My mind was put at ease when I looked through their website and saw that they are bee friendly and read about how this process is done humanly.
Bee venom has many benefits for the skin including fast renewal of skin cells, reducing scaring and ageing as well as eliminating and preventing acne. Apinourish, the one I have, focuses on repairing and moisturising the skin, whereas apiclear is created for calming problem skin. They also do other products for health and well-being.
The main reason I purchased this product was to reduce the scaring on my face from previous years of suffering with problem skin. After using this for over a month I can definitely say there has been a huge improvement in my scaring. Some scars have disappeared completely and others have reduced in size and redness. I have quite oily skin and I was a little worried that this may be a little to heavy for my skin, but it's perfect and really moisturising. The product can be described as a thick gel, which takes a minute or two to sink into the skin. The smell isn't all that appealing, it's not a bad smell, it just smells really medical, however, the benefits of this product seriously outweigh this.
This is a pricey product at £25, but it's an investment worth making if you have scaring and skin that is in need of renewal. I will continue to use this and repurchase it until my skin no longer needs it as this has really given me confidence and better looking skin. However, it needs to be remembered that everyone's skin is different and what works for me may not work for you.
