New Zealand Bee Venom has become world renowned thanks to celebrities and royals such as Gwenyth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Kate Middleton using Bee Venom cream as their essential beauty treatment. Now we want to take this amazing product to the masses so everybody has the chance to try the Beenigma secret!

"When I first started using Beenigma I noticed a tightening and firming of my skin almost instantly. You can really feel the active ingredients at work. Now that I’ve been using it for over a month I’ve noticed a new clarity in the tone and texture of my skin and a definite reduction in the lines that were starting to appear around my eyes and on my forehead. Not only that, but the philosophy behind the brand and the completely natural ingredients means that I feel like I’m ‘treating’ myself when I use it. Good for the soul AND my skin!"
- Claire Chitham, Actress (Waverley from Shortland Street)

"As soon as I started using Beenigma I noticed a huge difference in the quality of my skin. My skin instantly felt tighter and I felt more vibrant and awake. It has now been 4 weeks since I started using it And am receiving more and more compliments about how great my skin looks. I have even been told that I’m glowing. I 150% recommend using Beenigma for the fastest most effective way to decrease worry lines, pigmentation and sagging of the skin."
- Amy Waller, Actress, Auckland, NZ

"After only a few days my friends were asking what I was using on my skin, I told them it was Beenigma and now they all use it! Beenigma really works."
- Emma Beam, Victoria Secret Model, New York

"You hear about new “miracle" products all the time, I’m so happy that this one actually works. You have to try it because you won’t believe it until you see it yourself. You must!"
- Koreen Morrell, Managing Director, Grandeur Beauty Salon

"It made my skin smoother within the first week; it also significantly reduced my pores and plumped fine lines. Love it!"
- Erin Ashby, Head producer, Fashion week

"When beauty is the cornerstone of our industry, I use and endorse Beenigma as the essential to my daily regimen. My models love it and use it on a daily basis."
- Kimberley Hill, Director, KHM models and Talent
www.khmanagement.co.nz


"I’ve tried them all, anti-aging creams, moisturizers, skin rejuvenators. Beenigma is by far the best skincare product ever. I am on jar 8 and it still makes me smile!"
- Zoe Bell, Hollywood actress and Stunt Coordinator
Death Proof, Kill Bill, 27 Dresses


"All I can say is try it. You literally feel it working and the next day you see results. Incredible and thank you."
- Yasmine Ganley, Editor in Chief, www.anyonegirl.com

"Yes, it arrived. I’ve only used it a couple of times, but one effect of the cream that I really didn’t anticipate is what it did for the scars on my face! They became almost completely flush with the surface of my skin, and nearly invisible. Really surprising result that just makes me very happy."
- Shala

"For beauty products like this, I always take before and after photos. To test the Beenigma, I took photos of the right side of my face, just under the eye. In less than two weeks, I noticed some wrinkles running from the corner of my eye are now gone.

The wrinkles not only disappear, my skin feels more plump and supple. That effect was evident immediately after my first use, since I initially made a large radius around my eye. The mild inflammation was quite a contrast to the skin where it was not applied. I gradually started using the cream closer to the eye and haven't had problems. It always tingles when I put it on, which makes me feel like it's working.

My biggest worry with Beenigma is a reaction to the bee venom. If you are allergic, by all means stay away. I am also not sure about long term effects. It certainly works in the short term, and very quickly at that."

"My wife has been looking for a cream to help reduce her wrinkles on her face and this product seemed to have all of the potential to get the job done. This specialty cream contains bee venom and its effects on the skin are amazing. You have to make sure that you are not allergic to bee venom so start slowly and make sure that you have no skin or allergic reactions. Fortunately she had no adverse reactions and when she started she carefully followed the instructions.

She found the best program was for her to apply the cream in the morning and in the evening and rub it into her skin and it vanishes. She was brave and we took a short video of the wrinkles around her eyes before she started and after one week of using the product twice daily. The results are very positive and she is very happy. The wrinkles are fading away and are less deep. The benefits of this cream are obvious. It reacts with the skin and her skin looks renewed and the lines and wrinkles are going, going and almost gone.

The cream also moisturizes her skin and it is softer and fresher looking and feeling. The application for her is easy. She washes her face and then rubs in the cream to the areas the she wants to treat and the cream vanishes into her skin. She leaves it on all day or night and even applies her makeup over the top of it. The cream has a slight fragrance but the smell is light and not really noticeable. My wife loves this cream and she rates it as a 5 star item."

"When I asked my husband if he could see a difference in my Beenigma-tized skin , he answered, in his dodge-ball way, "It doesn't matter how you look, but how you feel." At first, I scoffed at him. After some thought, however, I realized that he was right in a way: I know my face and skin best. If I felt that it had changed for the better, then it probably had, even if the results were not dramatic. After all, did I really expect to look ten years younger after using this product? No. I had merely hoped for improvement. Still, just to be certain that I wasn't falling for the placebo effect, I took before, during, and two-weeks-in photographs using the same, lip-parted, smile-less, and, yes, unflattering shot after washing my face in the morning. I zoomed in on each to see if there had been changes. And there WERE differences -- not in the deeper wrinkles but in the overall texture of my skin. My face looked slightly (not a lot) smoother and tighter, whether because of the bee toxin or because of the efe ects of the honey cream. Although I don't look younger, I like what this product did to my skin. So, yes, I feel that Beenigma had an effect, albeit a subtle one.

Before beginning, I tested Beenigma on the underside of my forearm. About thirty seconds later, my arm actually felt as though it was being stung, and that sensation lasted for about five minutes. I was shocked. I was naturally nervous about applying it to my face, even though my arm had no redness or other effects beyond the initial stinging. The next day, I took the chance: no stinging sensation! Over the next week, I experienced the occasional tingling -- the kind you'd get from an astringent -- and a few quick stabs near my temple, but nothing unpleasant enough to make me stop. During the second week, I felt no sensations at all after I applied it. I don't know whether my body simply got used to the toxins or if they are unevenly distributed in the cream. I highly recommend doing a patch test first to check for sensitivity.

At first, I washed off the mask after thirty minutes, but I discovered that it had the best effect when I applied it as a night cream and left it on overnight. The honey and emollients were enough to moisturize my skin, and I didn't have to worry about applying sunscreen over it. I switched from short-term, twice a day application to long-term, once a day application, making a single jar last longer with better results on my face.

The label says prominently that Beenigma is produced in New Zealand, although the small print on the back says that it is distributed by a Gauteng, South African company.

Even though bee venom has been described as the "poor man's Botox," you will not get Botox-like paralysis from this product. I consider that a good thing. The biggest question for consumers is cost: Are subtle effects worth the price? Since no cream offers eye-popping results, I'd say yes, if you are inclined to using high-end creams to improve elasticity and general tone. Don't buy this if you expect dramatic results; in that case, your best bet would be a respected plastic surgeon. Beenigma won't work on deep wrinkles, and it won't "lift" your face. All I have to do is run my hands down my face to *feel* my softer skin, even if my husband cannot see it."

"The new beauty craze from UK is here. No other than the Duchess of Cambridge is using this as part of her regular beauty regimen. It is expensive because most of them are still imported from UK. Also the process of extracting the venom from the bees you can just imagine is not an easy process. No, they don't harm the bees, instead they use a small amount of electrical impulses to excite the bees to produce the venom.

My wife and I are using this. The substance feels and looks like a bit similar to Ponds. It is cold but doesn't smell bad at all. I didn't see considerable changes on my skin yet, but my 50 year old skin is nice to begin with. A bit of tightening and plumping and a bit more supple. I don't experience dryness the whole day. My wife has better results. She mentioned a little tingling which I heard is just normal. Her skin looks healthier and seems to stretch a bit making her wrinkles less visible.

I think it depends also how your skin reacts to the venom. There is a warning on the product for those who are very sensitive or allergic to bees. At the same time it is actually how your body reacts to the venom that produces the results. So, a little bit of sensitivity maybe the key if this will work on you."

"I'd read about bee venom in creams but had never gotten to try it out. Bee venom does all kinds of interesting things including filling in lines and increasing collagen and being an anti-coagulant...not that the anti-coagulant part would have anything to do with lotion. It's being used more in medicine but far more in makeup due to the line filling properties without having to pay for facial fillers.

When reading the ingredient list I was impressed. Because aside from just the bee venom, it had very high quality other ingredients, such as shea butter--that is one most will recognize but some of the others likely others would not be familiar with, but I am having worked in sales in the cosmetic chemical biz years ago. It's well done and rich and thick.

When applying, there was a slight tingle as it worked on the skin. Not unpleasant, just felt like it was working. The effect of moisture was evident instantly yet it soaked in so as not to allow a greasy feeling.

My skin is VERY sensitive so I was a little nervous about trying this. I had only great results, including reduced lines around my eye area which was what I focused on most when using the product.

I have nothing but good things to report about it. The smell is clean and fresh, but not overpowering, I saw far more instant results than I ever expected, and the moisturizing properties are exceptional. It's on my daily plan now."

"Me: Late 40's, with dry, sensitive skin. I've been using this almost 2 weeks as a mask, 3 times a week, leaving it on 20-25 minutes each time, since I prefer using a different cream as my moisturizer/SPF during the daytime. I don't like the feel of this cream on my face under make-up, it makes my skin feel a little rough and sticky until it soaks in, so I choose to use as a mask (it can be used either way). Even though my skin is sensitive, I noticed no stinging at all. There is a light fragrance, maybe it's the honey. I'm lucky I don't have many wrinkles at my age, none on my forehead at all, just a deepening of nose-to-mouth lines. This cream seems to plump those up, but they come back later. Maybe the results will be cumulative over a longer time period. I'll update later on."

"When I asked my 60-year-old wife if she was interested in trying Beenigma, she was skeptical to say the least. Because of hormonal problems when she was much younger, she has a number of facial scars from acne and other skin ailments. She's tried Mederna and countless other facial creams, but they were either too harsh, too drying, or largely ineffective. But after reading about Beenigma on the company's website, she agreed to give it a try.

On the first day, she tried rubbing in a little Beenigma on a part of the left side of her face as a test. After four days of this, she said there was a noticeable improvement in her "smile line" and acne scars. Her skin was more supple, the lines were not as deep, and the old acne scars were less pronounced. She also said that her skin pores appeared to be smaller, but without the excessive drying that other products had produced. On the fifth day, she began applying Beenigma on her entire face and her neck. Now, after about ten days of using Beenigma twice a day, she is very pleased with the results. They're noticeable, too - even I can see and feel the smoothing effects on her skin, and the acne scars that she hated are not as prominent.

My wife said that the first couple of times, she felt a mild tingling, presumably from the bee venom in Beenigma, but after that, she didn't notice it anymore. She added that a little bit goes a long way, but she informed me that we will be purchasing another jar when this one runs out. That's okay with me. During our thirty years of marriage, I've seen thousands of dollars worth of cosmetics come into our bathroom, and most of them got tossed out eventually to make room for a new crop of creams and lotions that promised to be the Fountain of Youth (they weren't). Beenigma isn't the Fountain of Youth either, but the results have been so promising that my wife is very happy about it, and that makes me very happy.

If you're even slightly interested in the product, it's worth a trip to the company's website to learn how the bee venom and Manuka honey are believed to work in the skin. Also, it was fascinating to learn how the venom is extracted from bees without harming them."

"I'm 42, and have noticed that my skin is getting drier. Lines and wrinkles still aren't much of an issue except for a concentration line on my forehead and some necklace lines.

This cream is very thick, with a slightly sweet scent that reminds me of vintage creams. It's a slight fragrance that fades fairly quickly when you apply the cream in a light layer. Using it as a mask, the scent doesn't dissipate until you wash it off, but it's a pleasant scent.

I patch tested on my inner elbow first, and felt a slight tingling that quickly subsided. Then applied it to my face after washing it. Because lines and wrinkles aren't really an issue, I also planned to test it on my husband who agreed tentatively to me testing it on his smile lines. Then a few hours after I applied it, I DID notice a difference. Not in the concentration line on my forehead, or even on the necklace lines which I didn't look at that closely. The difference was my scars. I have 3 scars on my face that are slightly recessed. They are all old enough that I'm very used to how they feel, and running my fingers over my face, they didn't feel as deep. I went running to the bathroom to look in a brightly lit mirror. Sure enough, between some light summer tanning and the plumping action of the venom, those scars were nearly invisible even to me.

After a week of using it once a day, my skin is very soft and not at all dry feeling. The necklace lines and concentration lines are less noticeable and my scars are looking better than they ever have before.

If you're curious where they are located, one is on my upper lip. It took 6 stitches, the one on my cheekbone took 13 stitches and the one down that runs from my ear to throat took nearly 30 stitches. All 3 feel less recessed, they haven't disappeared, but you'd have to really look and know what to look for to see them.

I'm not testing this on my husband after all. I'm going to hoard it, and get more when the jar is empty."

"At first, my wife was very skeptical of Beenigma and thought that it was another in a long line of creams offering false promises. After three weeks of use my wife has not only been won over, but she is recommending Beenigma to her friends. My wife has never had a significant number of wrinkles her face but now her skin is noticeably smoother. She really enjoys the natural fragrance (a bit like honey, but not as strong) and the tingling sensation she experiences when it is on her face. The only concern remains for her is the possible long term effect of placing bee venom on your face.

Beenigma claims that bee Venom is one of nature's most powerful agents for producing collagen and elastin production. This helps to reduce wrinkles and reverse the signs of aging. While I can't claim that this is all true, but so far the results seem to positive.

Notes/Directions
- Can be used as a nightly/morning moisturizer or it can be used a face mask (3 nights a week for 20 minutes per usage). My wife uses a very small amount, primarily around her eyes, each night before she goes to bed.
- Do not use if you have any bee allergies.
- Very nice packaging - my wife made it a point to state that it was as nice as high-end cosmetics.
- My wife has not had any type of skin reaction ...rash or otherwise.
- As a nightly moisturizer she preferred Beenigma to her typical regimen of Origins moisturizer... she also thinks that it compares favorably to Lancome (which is at a similar price point)
- Very high quality ingredients - nothing about the product from fragrance, packaging, consistency, to results have any signs of being a gimmicky.
- You definitely will want to take a look at the Beenigma webpage.

Final verdict - After three weeks Beenigma turned a couple of skeptics into believers. In the three weeks she has been using the product her opinion has completely reversed and now she is recommending it to her friends and family. Highly Recommended. 5 Stars."

"I don't splurge on makeup or perfume or anything like that, but one thing I WILL splurge on is skin care. I live in Southwest Florida and spend multiple hours a day outside in the sun (I'm a distance swimmer and I love to garden and just be outside) and i don't want my skin to look like an old leather bag by the time I'm 40. So I invest in serious sunblock and any kind of cream/lotion that might improve the look of my skin.

I was a little apprehensive about the whole idea of "bee venom" at first- bee stings are definitely unpleasant and I wasn't sure I wanted any of that near my face. But I read some reviews on different products from different manufacturers, and the reviews were positive.

When I received the cream (lovely packaging, and a GENEROUS bottle- not one of those quarter-sized bottles that some of the other high end creams come in), I was really surprised at the quality of the product. The cream is luscious- it smells divine, is super thick and rich (thicker than a cream, lighter than a mask), and it disappeared into my skin as soon as I smoothed it on. There wasn't any sort of oiliness to it- it was just velvety and rich. I really hate skin creams that are like oil slicks or that leave my face feeling greasy, but the Beenigma cream was instantly absorbed and definitely hydrated my skin. And I left it on all day and no oiliness or "slick" by the end of the day, which is a bonus.

There was a tiny bit of a "cooling" feeling the first few times I used the cream, but nothing remotely irritating. It felt refreshing, to be honest.

I have noticed an improvement in the softness of my skin and the overall tone in the few weeks I have been using the product. My skin is highly sensitive so I'm still waiting to see what happens to my pores- some creams do upset my skin (breakouts) but it takes a while for that to show up.

Basically, I am using this as a day and/or night cream. On days when it's super humid, I mix a little of the Beenigma with a more lightweight sensitive skin lotion - a little goes a VERY long way.

I recommend this product- if you are serious about skin care and want to try something that will not only provide instant hydration/plumpness t your skin, but also something that continues to improve your skin over time, I think the Beenigma has great potential."

"My son was visiting and he left a jar of Beenigma sitting in the bathroom. I picked it up to smell it and I was enchanted with the fragrance. It smells wonderful. Like a field of clover. So I asked him about what it was and where to get some. I honestly didn't expect anything different or better than my Oil of Olay. Boy was I in for the surprise of my life. At 63, you get used to wrinkles above the lip and little lines everywhere but you try to keep the sagging at a minimum. Not always an easy thing to do. I noticed a difference right away. I couldn't put my finger on exactly what it was, but I looked good. My husband asked if I had slept really well. Long story short, it's 3 weeks and ALL my friends want to know if I got a Lifestyle Lift. Seriously. My sagging jowls are nearly gone, I glow, my skin feels so soft and looks so good and really healthy. You see the difference it makes on your skin but more importantly, you just feel pretty."

"My wife, in her mid-30s, has been using this facial cream. We see results and saw them in about 3 days. We don't know how long-lasting this will be. The result is a slight puffing or fullness of the facial skin along with her reported feelings of rejuvenation.

This has been a fun experience! Bee venom causes a sensation that's pretty interesting. I couldn't help but research why this makes sense.

Bee venom is used in various medicinal products including some that deliver therapy for joint disease. The venom is obtained by delivering a mild electric shock though glass, causing bees to sting the glass and the venom to run off into collection.

On contact with the skin, the venom causes local inflammation and also prevents clotting of the blood since it is an anticoagulant. This then stimulates the skin to produce collagen. Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies. The other ingredients include Manuka honey, shea butter and vitamin e. Manuka honey is an expensive, dark monofloral honey produced from the nectar of the manuka tree and has a long history of use as a topical healing agent for wounds and burns. Manuka honey is antibacterial. Shea butter is a complex fat from the nuts of the West African Shea and is widely used in skin care products.

Based on our experience, this product works... the experience using it is stimulating."

"I had been reading about Kate Middleton and Camilla Paker-Bowles using Bee Venom masks, and thinking Camilla was looking pretty fresh and dewy. Then I got a chance to try Beenigma and really excited. I put the mask on just the right side of my face for over a week. I could see an improvement in just a few days.

There was a slight tingle, nothing unpleasant. The scent is very light and the cream lush and silky. My skin is so fresh looking, I look like I have had something done in the way of a chemical peel, but instead of a harsh treatment in a Drs office I have a pleasant experience with beenigma.

I highly recommend this product for great skin tone. Honestly, this stuff worked. I was amazed at the difference, especially in some of the "dull" areas like around my eyes, cheeks, and jawline. Use carefully at first, make sure you aren't allergic to bees.

This product is the bees knees!"
- Becky

"My wife and I have both had a chance to try out this bee venom cream... it does seem to have softened up some of the more fixed wrinkles around our eyes and on our foreheads.

The idea with the cream is that it's supposed to "trick" the skin into thinking it's been lightly stung, causing the body to direct blood towards the area and stimulate the production of naturally occurring chemicals that strengthen and revitalize the skin. (As I understand it, they collect the bee venom in a way that doesn't kill the bees - but it is an expensive process which is why even with small amounts of the actual venom this cream is fairly expensive.)

On the first application, we both noticed a slight tingle. It smells nice, though, and smooths in easily.

After a few applications - we've used it morning and night for a couple of weeks - the tingle seemed less noticeable. My wife thought the cream was a bit heavy compared to some other facial creams she's used. I didn't mind putting it on, and, thought the smell was pleasant. I have noticed that my skin feels a bit softer and smoother in the places I've applied it. At least it feels smoother to the touch..."
- Nathan A.

"I'd never heard of using bee venom in a cosmetic prior to finding out about this product. Although I was skeptical, after using it for a couple of weeks, there have been positive results.

Granted, it has not rolled back a couple of decades on my 50+ year old face. But it has visibly improved wrinkles around my eyes and on my neck. They haven't been eradicated, but this has made more of an impact than any other cream I've used.

It can be used as a mask or as a daily cream. I've been using it as a daily cream since that's a more practical use for me. It has an interesting, and not unpleasant tingly feel when applied..."
- Tom J.

"I use this cream mainly for a noticeable crease/line in my neck. Somewhere along the way, I discovered this neck line and have using various creams and such to blend in back into my skin ever since. I've used the Bee Venom Mask for a few weeks now, applying it at night before I go to sleep, then again in the morning after my shower. It has strong fragrance that I can't quite describe. It's not exactly what I'd call a floral scent, but more of a clean soap smell.

When applying it to my neck, it does seem to have a tingling/warming feeling that starts up a few minutes after application. My neck feels ever so slightly warm, almost as though it's about to feel irritated, but then doesn't. This reminds me of some lip treatments/glosses I've used that were meant to be plumping. After applying them, they start to single a bit, causing circulation to increase and the lips to get a little fuller appearance. This feeling of this Bee Venom Mask reminds me of these and seems to have similar effects. Over time it seems the mask causes fullness of the skin, and starts to fill in the lines.

The cream is thick and in the ingredients it's mentioned that it contains Shea Butter (which I love). It comes packaged in a weighty frosted glass jar, with a shiny gold screw-top lid. It's a nice looking jar, that can sit on your bathroom counter top without screaming "wrinkle cream" to any guests who may use the restroom. It's packaged like a high end facial cream..."
- Angela S.

"After using this for just about a month now, I can honestly say that my skin looks amazing. I'll start with the knowledge that my skin is usually pretty good. I don't smoke, I don't spend a ton of time at the beach or in the sun (although I did in my younger years), I don't use foundation or other heavy makeup either. But as I entered into my 49th year, I was gifted with my first brown age spot, right in the middle of my cheek. Every time I looked in the mirror, it stared back and me and said, "Face reality, you are getting older."

But I was not going to give in. I am not a vain person but this age spot was driving me nuts as well as some of the face creases and thin lines... So I followed the instructions. I was wary at first, expecting a red face, some kind of reaction, tingling or something that would bring the reality home that this cream contains bee venom. But all I got was a very short lived slight redness and the amazing results of the product. My dark spot is now very faded -- almost gone. I watched it disappear mostly over the first two weeks of use. It hasn't completely gone away but it is still getting lighter. Any fine lines I had around my eyes are gone and some of my cheek creases are gone or greatly diminished. I also have some deep 'between the eyebrow' creases from squinting (or frowning...) for many, many years. Since these go much deeper than the skin layers they have not gone away but I didn't expect them to.

The product has a lovely scent, a creamy honey smell that lingers for a bit but never bothered me. The cream disappears quickly and really seems to hydrate without leaving any greasy feel. What little make-up I wear did not smear or smudge any more because of this cream. After using this for a month, I still have a little more than half the jar left... I would be happy to purchase new jars to continue the benefits."
- Karen G.

"So I'm never one to fall for these "beauty in a bottle" gimmicks. Given that fact, I was very, very skeptical by this product. But after having tried it, I have to say that I actually like it!

Now, has it noticeably reduced my wrinkles? Probably not. Maybe softened a line here or there? It's so hard to judge these things.

What I can say is that it has made my skin look and feel better. I have oily skin so after I wash it, I usually use some sort of cream to give moisture back to the parts that aren't oily. This process, however, always leaves part of my skin looking really dried out. Since using this product, my skin no longer has that dried out look in some parts. It has made my skin more supple. It doesn't feel dry anymore. I don't know if it's the bee venom or the honey they use in the product. Whatever it is, it's making my skin look and feel better.

Another thing I was wary of is because I have oily skin that is very sensitive, I was worried I'll start breaking out if I use this product. Well, three and a half weeks later and not a single break out! So obviously, this can be used on all skin types.

I had also read the other reviews and was aware that some people thought it had a strong scent. I buy everything unscented because I just can't stand these funky scents in everything. I have to say that the scent of this product, which is very slight, doesn't bother me at all. It smells very slightly like honey. You can smell it as you're putting it on but the scent vanishes within minutes, so no problems there.

Overall, a very good product. It certainly agrees with my skin and makes it feel and look better which is ultimately all I care about."
- N. Finer

"I bought this for my wife based on a recommendation from one of her friends. She has been using it a couple weeks now and has said it really works. It has a great smell and although my wife doesn't have a lot of wrinkles it has smoothed out the ones that she had. I can hardly see any at all now. She said she is recommending Beenigma to her friends."
- Brett H.

"I have been using this cream for about a week. I decided to jump in and write my review because I am already seeing results. So many other reviewers mentioned a slight tingle or sting that I was a little taken aback when I did t get any tingle at all. However, I've been using a different cream prior to testing this that has peppermint oil in it...so I may be immune to a tingle that is less intense. The scent is nice, but not awesome. It reminds me of my grandmother. It fades almost immediately, fortunately. I don't need my face to smell like anything frankly.

The skin on my face feels really soft in the morning after this cream. I'm old, but every now and then I still break out like a teenager. I was a bit nervous about the consistency of this cream because I envisioned a whole face full of bumps. Oddly enough, I was in the middle of a minor breakout the first night. I don't know if it was this cream or not, but that went away the following morning. It was a minor miracle.

As I said, my skin feels really soft. But I've got pretty good facial skin for a new grandma. Where I am REALLY noticing this cream, and the reason I decided to write the review, is on my neck. Lately I've been noticing that crepe skin showing up on my throat and I hate it! I glare at it and send it negative go-away vibes. It hasn't abided. However, I just noticed this morning that it is waaaay less crepey. Less creepy crepe. Yay! If it works for that super thin skin, I imagine it is probably doing good things for the rest of my face..."
- Mandy P.

"I have only been using the Beenigma Bee Venom Cream for a little while and can already notice a difference in my skin. My skin feels refreshed and some of my fine lines already seem smoother and faint. I'm so excited to see how this will transform my complexion in the coming weeks and months!"
- Laura

"I have been using this twice a day for about a week now... What I did find wonderful, is that it DID tighten my skin in one very big problem area. I have a "turkey wattle"...you know, that loose, crepey skin that makes us (men AND women) look like we have a turkey neck. I have been massaging this into my crepey skin for the same amount of time I have been using it on my smile lines and I'll be damned if my skin isn't getting tighter and less apt to jiggle. I am so thrilled about that. It makes the price of this product well worth it, since nothing else I've tried (short of a face lift) has worked on that part of my face. Totally Amazing!

I can live with my fine lines but the wattle just creeps me out and the solution come in a little jar... I have to tell you, if I keep seeing the results I'm seeing on my neck -I WILL be buying this as soon as I run out. It is a very generous jar for the price and a little goes a long way. I think I'm going to be able to get 2 months out of the one jar. WAY cheaper than a neck-lift!"

"Bee venom therapy seems to be all the rage in anti-aging products. It seems everyone wants in on the action, and there are many more products to choose from now than there were even a year ago. In comes Beenigma, focusing on the highest quality venom, from a great bee, and doing it in a way that guarantees the bee won't die after stinging (or at least lessens the mortality rate). That marketing speak is all well and good, but the real question becomes... is it worth the price? Does it do what it says.

In a word, yes to both questions.

My fiance has been using this around her eyes, twice a day, for the last week. The fine lines have diminished quite a lot. The fine lines of aging are making her look 5-10 years younger, which is awesome. She's always beautiful anyway, just with less noticeable wrinkles!

The question really comes down to the price. The price for the jar is really expensive. The thing is, what are you looking for? Are you looking for something that's cheap, doesn't work and you spend more on multiple products with lesser results? Or do you bite the bullet, grab a Beenigma cream and know it'll lessen the appearances of wrinkles? For me, I'd rather spend the money and know I'm going to get results.

The cream goes on easy, comes off easy and has a pleasant smell. The way it works is that your skin responds to the venom with collagen and elastin, just as if you had been lightly stung. The finer wrinkles are gone in a week. Larger ones, well, they are lessening in appearance, but I don't know if they will completely disappear. I will try to keep my review updated as time goes by... Highly recommended if you can afford it."

"This is a luxurious creamy thick face lotion with the most prominent ingredient being New Zealand bee venom and Manuka Honey. Be warned: Do not use if you have bee allergies! Proponents of bee venom say it is like a natural botox. Naysayers say bee venom is just the latest fad. At $130 for 65 grams, you just want to know, Does it work? The great thing is that the company offers 100% money back no questions asked within 60 days. That's fair, you can give it a try and see for yourself.

I have been using Bee Nigma for 2 weeks now. Applying this lotion there is a slight tingle... I leave it on overnight and reapply in the morning. It has a wonderful honey rose sort of smell, not over powering.

The results? I have premature deep lines around my mouth that I have wished would magically disappear. I think Bee Nigma has helped some but they are not gone by a long shot. Overall it has helped my skin to remain smooth and supple but hasn't erased wrinkles. I do love the feel and the tingle makes me feel hopeful for longer term change. I'm giving this face cream five stars because I respect a company that is willing to stand behind their product 100% and allow the customer to try it out."
- Terri R.

"After so many years of over-priced department store creams that promise it all but deliver little results, I wasn't expecting much from Beenigma. It does include Manuka honey, and I am aware that that is a great product, but bee venom? Who knew?

So I am delighted to say this is a product that delivers. I have had an ugly bag under my eye from tearing up repeatedly over the death of a beloved cat. Nothing worked to reduce it until Beenigma. Now it is disappearing, and not slowly at all.

I've used it less than two weeks and am thrilled with my results. Flabby neck is going away. Baggy eye is almost gone. I couldn't ask for more. So, I'm delighted to recommend this face cream and plan to buy more when this is gone.

How long will my results last? That has yet to be determined, but, for now, I'll keep on using it twice a day. I've barely dented the contents of my jar, so I expect the jar to last for a couple of months.

Give it a try. This one works"

"I'm a middle aged mom whose beauty routine consists of washing my face with a bar of soap when I shower and maybe remembering to put some drug store cream on my face before bed. I am careful about sun exposure and always wear my sunscreen, but age and gravity are starting to show in the wrinkles and eye bags on my face.

Did I mention that I don't spend money on myself? I can't see spending money on beauty products when we have so many other expenses and obligations... I would have never bought this for myself, especially when almost every anti-aging product out there is snake oil. The bee venom in Beenigma is supposed to stimulate the skin into producing collagen and elastin - two proteins our young faces produce but our older faces lack. I was skeptical, but willing to give it a try.

I started using Beenigma several weeks ago, and as I saw the improvements day by day I started researching, reading reviews and having to admit that this bee venom thing really does work. I am a convert!

This cream gives my face a very slight tingle (but no redness) when I apply it, and soaks in quickly without leaving my face feeling greasy at all. It smells like the manuka honey it contains, which is a nice, natural scent and not overpowering at all. I use it twice a day, massaging it sparingly on cheeks, forehead, neck and around my mouth. I use a little more of it around my eyes, where I have the most signs of aging.

In two weeks, I've seen my skin texture improve more than with any drug store moisturizer I've used. My neck is less crepey, my face is more plumped and youthful looking, and definitely my eye bags and crows feet are less noticeable. Even my husband says he can tell that my face looks smoother and younger.

They say the improvement is cumulative, so I'll continue using this cream... I am very impressed with Beenigma and all those bees who contributed to it."
- Lisa K.

"Back in 2011 Dr. Oz did some segments about bee venom being used in a variety of beauty products, facial creams and masks being the big sellers. Bee stings causes puffiness and swelling which in turn increases the collagen and reduces the fine lines and wrinkles on your skin. Besides helping fill in lines, bee venom also help maintain skin tone and color. When a bee stings you it is the active component "Melittin" that causes the localized pain and inflammation at the injected part of your body. Melittin can absorb toxins, but it also soaks in oxygen, amino acids and hormones that can give your skin a natural rejuvenation. That is what Beenigma does without the actual bee sting.

Upon the first application I did feel a slight tingle, but after continuous use that seems to fade away. The cream is thick and quickly absorbs into your skin. Since it is so dense, it does not glide on smoothly but it disappears quickly. Beenigma can be used as either a cream or a mask. Use as a cream: Wash face and apply morning and night. The nourishing formulation will absorb into the skin. Avoid contact with the eyes. I made the mistake of touching my eyes after applying the cream and I will never do it again! Use as a mask: Up to 3 times a week. Wash face and gently massage, a generous layer to your neck and face. Leave on for at least 20 minutes. Wipe off the extra layer with a towel or facial tissue. Soap is a neutralizer to the bee venom and the two products should not be used together.

After 4 weeks of continuous use I have seen a tremendous improvement in my skins overall tone and color. My face glows, it is extremely soft and a majority of the lines lines are faint. It has not realy help with my forehead lines which are the biggest wrinkled areas, but my smile, nose and crows feet have improved significantly."
- Zulma

"Beenigma is a face cream made in New Zealand. It does an excellent job of moisturizing the skin and actually does reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with regular use. I have been applying it morning and night for a couple of weeks with noticeable results even after just a few days. In addition to plumping the skin, it also eliminates that powdery look of skin that is too dry. It has a pleasant feel when applied and only a very faint and slightly sweet odor.

Ivory soap and hot water were all my skin needed when I was younger, but with the passage of time, I have come to appreciate the value of protecting it and preventing it from drying out. Beenigma contains bee venom as well as Manuka honey, which has proven antibacterial properties, in addition to shea butter and a touch of almond oil, plus a host of hygroscopic and lipophilic moisturizers and emulsifiers.

The jar contains 65 g or 2.29 oz of Beenigma, a generous amount for use on delicate facial skin. The gold-capped jar and its gold-embossed packaging are also quite attractive and add to the experience of using a carriage-trade cosmetic. It would also make a nice gift!"
- Margaret P.

"I tend to be more than a little skeptical about "amazing" product claims especially those concerning beauty products. So, when I received a sample of this Bee Venom Cream, I rubbed a little on my face expecting nothing. I glanced in the mirror as I turned to leave the bathroom and did a double take... this cream actually tightened the fine lines around my eyes! Instantly. Noticeably. I was pretty astounded so I decided to experiment a little with it...

* This cream works particularly well on "crepe-y" areas - you know, skin that is starting to loosen and is beginning to look a little like crepe paper. Eyelids are particularly vulnerable to this type of crepe-y skin. This cream is a miracle on skin like this.
* It works well on smaller crow's feet and other fine lines, but it's less effective on deeper wrinkles...
* I have really sensitive skin and I had no problems or reactions from using this product.
* The results last most of the day.
* It doesn't make your skin feel odd or tight - it feels completely normal, but the skin looks tighter.
* It has virtually no scent.
* The company's website says that the bees are used in an ethical and responsible way.

I was so impressed that I shared this cream with my friend to see if she experienced the same or similar results. She walked into the bathroom and then, about five minutes later, she howled, "This stuff is [bleeped] amazing!"

We are in our late 40's and early 50's, and we both have skin that is relatively youthful and just starting to loosen. And we both experienced very similar results - the skin around our eyes, including the little crow's feet seemed to tighten instantly and stayed that way for the rest of the day. I usually skip around to various products, but I will definitely be buying more of this and recommending it to my friends."
- Claire J.

"I have been using this product for only a couple weeks and can already see a noticeable difference in my skin! It's more even and the lines on my face are minimizing right before my eyes! They jar is a generous amount that will last you a long time! I would highly recommend this to anyone- whether it's for prevention or to help minimize lines and wrinkles that have already surfaced."
- Marisa T.

"I've been lucky enough to inherit my Dad's skin and my Mom's hair, so even though I am well into my 60's I am just starting to get wrinkles and my hair is still the color it was when I was 16. Still, there are those few tiny crow's feet, a couple of lines across my forehead, and most annoyingly, those inherited lines at the corners of my mouth that give me a "hang dog" look, make me always seem sad. I don't like those, so I've been paying special attention to them with this Beenigma Bee Venom Cream Mask from New Zealand.

The first time I used this I noticed just the tiniest of tingles but I've never experienced that again. Rather than use this as a heavy mask, I've been applying it after cleaning my face every morning and night, paying special attention to those wrinkles at the corners of my mouth. After allowing it to soak in for 20 minutes or so I apply my regular moisturizer over the top. (When you're my age you need all the moisturizing you can get!) The smell is gentle and not unpleasant and the cream leaves no greasy feel. After about 3 weeks, I don't really notice any "permanent" improvement of the sort you might expect from Botox, but there is a very obvious difference in those lines I hate so much, particularly for several hours after applying the cream.

Grandma's $0.02 - While not quite Botox, Beenigma Bee Venom Cream Mask seems to work quite well."
- RM Bassett

"I've been using this BeeNigma facial cream for about two weeks now. I know that it's called a mask, but to me a mask is meant to be washed off. This cream feels so good on my face, I certainly would not wash it off.

Packaging: It comes beautifully packaged in a lovely jar and attractive box.

Consistency: The cream is thick and creamy, so just a little goes a long way.

Fragrance: I was surprised to read in a few reviews that some people didn't like the fragrance, because I really love it. I think it has a soft, almost baby powder like smell. It's very mild though and dissipates quickly, so if you don't care for it for some reason, the smell doesn't last long.

On the skin: The cream feels light and smooth as it goes on and is easy to spread on the face and neck. I haven't experienced any tingling at all. It remains on the skin surface feeling moist for a few minutes, then it absorbs quickly into the skin. It never feels oily or sticky. I've thrown out perfectly good jars of face cream that left an oily or sticky feeling on my face, but this product does neither. Hours later my skin still has a soft, velvety feel to it.

Noticeable changes: I've noticed that my facial skin has a smoother texture, and the fine lines around my mouth have plumped up a bit. The pores around my nose seem to have reduced in size, and that makes my skin tone even out. The biggest improvement that I've noticed is that my recent onset of "adult" acne (I'm almost 60) has cleared up. I've been battling acne in the nose area and around my nostrils for almost a year, and it has completely cleared up in the past couple of weeks. I don't know if it's a coincidence or not, but I plan to keep using BeeNigma and see if it stays away."
- Patty K.

"...I have been using it for about 3 weeks now in the following manner - I exfoliate my face, neck and decolletage with a Buff Puff and then apply a thin coat of Beenigma. I've been doing this twice daily. My skin tingles very slightly and feels wonderful. It doesn't cause any redness and it makes a wonderful base for makeup to be applied over.

I've also been applying it on the back of only one hand twice daily so that I could better judge the effectiveness. It's very hard to be objective when looking for signs of improvement twice daily during application, but I feel the thin skin under my eyes and on my neck feels and looks firmer and younger. It also seems to be having a brightening effect on my skin tone - blotches seem to be fading.

My daughter, who lives in another city and didn't know I've been using this, commented to me yesterday that I was looking wonderful! When I told her that I have been using this cream, she looked closely and said she definitely thinks there has been an improvement. When I showed her the backs of my hands and asked her to choose which hand looked better, she unhesitatingly chose the hand I've been using the cream on as looking much younger.

There is some interesting science behind this cream. Manuka honey has been used for years in the treatment of skin wounds and to enhance the immune system when taken internally. Scientists are now studying it more closely because it seems to be working to treat antibiotic-resistant infections like MRSA because it inhibits the growth of bacteria! It's remarkable stuff. Google it and you'll find a lot of information. The Manuka honey in this cream is 20+.

Bee venom is also very interesting. It's also being studied because scientists discovered this year that bee venom actually kills the HIV virus! (Google this, too.) In other words, it's powerful stuff. Since both of these main ingredients fight infection and inflammation - things that accelerate aging when chronically present in the body - it's not surprising to me that it can have a visible impact on aging skin. Beenigma is not a miracle or a fountain of youth, but my skin is noticeably improved since using it and it makes my face feel lovely."
- Terry C.

"My husband noticed my hands were softer and smoother. He is oblivious... I am grateful for the smooth hands. I do notice some tightening in my face, and friends have said I look rested. I always wonder what they mean, did I look work worn before? But I take the compliment. I can see it best on my neck and hands, and those are big concerns for me. And well, my husband noticed!"
- Amelia G.

"...I've used BeeNigma twice a day for about a month, applying it after washing my face. The cream feels good on my skin and is readily absorbed; its very subtle scent is pleasant. My forehead and the areas around my eyes are where I focused my attention and applied the BeeNigma... Occasionally I felt a little tingling on the skin after applying the BeeNigma. It was actually a pleasant tingling and made me think something was happening. I couldn't be sure anything was happening because to me I looked the same every day, and nobody had commented on how much younger I was looking.

Then I printed the before and after pictures, the ones I took in late September and the ones taken appropriately on Halloween. The photos lie on the table beside me at this moment. And guess what. The BeeNigma really made a difference. My forehead wrinkles that took me years to develop are quite pronounced on the before pictures. On the after photos they're more of a mumble. The most significant improvement is around the eyes, on the wrinkles that weren't as noticeable.

The BeeNigma regimen may not have made me look like a movie star, but it has done the impossible and resulted in some improvement. I would guess that women with softer skin and more subtle wrinkles can expect more improvement with the BeeNigma."
- Rick N.

"...I did not experience any tingling or any other questionable reaction while the product was on my skin. The fragrance is fresh and to my extremely sensitive nose acceptable, although I would appreciate it even more if it had no scent at all. (Most products, in my opinion, are overly scented. If a product smells disagreeable from the jar, I will never use it on my skin; the resulting headache would completely ruin my day or night and completely eliminate any other benefits.)

Once the treatment is removed, I do not feel the need to use moisturizer. My skin feels soft and fresh--ready to face the elements. I do have some forehead lines above my nose and some over my right eye. Using the Beenigma every day helps to make those lines less glaring--softer--as if looking through a diffusion lens. I can't wait to see what they look like after I finish the jar.

Beenigma is definitely a higher-end bee venom product, but it is comparable with highly ranked products like Rodial and Skin Chemists -- the product Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall uses with good results--- which are around the same price range.

Bottom line? Beenigma Bee Venom Cream is a natural alternative to Botox injections without the frozen expressionless results. The scent is pleasant and there are noticeable changes in skin texture about which to buzz and bustle. Recommended."
- Diana F.

"Bee Venom is a traditional remedy that has been rediscovered. The trend got hot when this new "natural Botox" was adopted by Kate Middleton as part of her skin care regimen before her wedding to Prince William. Gwyneth Paltrow is another big fan who is singing its praises. The question is: Does it really work?

The short answer is Yes... It may not be The New Botox, but it's one of the best topical skin care products I've tried and it does appear to minimize fine lines, skin discolorations and even some light scars. It's especially good around the eyes, where it also helps with minor puffiness.

After using Beenigma Bee Venom Cream for a week, my skin is noticably smoother. It may be the honey, which is not only an exceptional moisturizer, but also a natural antibacterial, so it fights inflammations, acne and infections. It also brightens the skin, gives it a nice healthy glow. This is probably from the venon which is said to stimulate circulation.

Anything that boosts circulation is a good thing. More nutrients and more oxygen mean that even older skin has what it needs to produce stronger cells and, most important, stronger and more limber collagen and elastin. These make up the tiny little connector fibers that hold your skin in place. Like any elastic that is constantly stretched, after a while the collagen and elastin fibers get saggy and baggy -- and so does our skin. As we get older, the collagen and elastin fibers are not as resilient as they are in young skin, which accounts for why our complexions lost their tone, why our necks are not firm, and why we our faces start to show their age.

Bee venom is a powerful healer for damaged skin. This is due to a high concentration of Mellitan, a very powerful anti-inflammatory, about 100 times more potent than hydrocortisone. This means that if you have sensitve skin, lots of minor breakouts, or rough and scaly patches, Beenigma may be a big help. It might even help alleviate rosacea and eczema.

What I especially like about Beenigma is that I can see a difference right away. I use it in the morning and it makes my skin look healthy. The little wrinkles around my eyes look smoother. It also plumps up my complexion, so my face looks tigher, more toned. I don't know if the effects are long term, but the cream, while expensive, costs a lot less than Botox which works extremely well on wrinkles caused by contracting muscles, but can't help that quilted look that's a sign of older skin and has no real therapeutic value. Beenigma does. According to Paltrow, it also erases minor scars, even older ones. If it works on scars, it may also work on dark patches and sun damage. Worth trying since even at $150 for a small jar, it's less than the usual dermatological procedures needed to get rid of them.

I had one concern about the bee venom ingredient. It was my understanding that a bee dies after stinging and i wondered if collecting the venom resulted in the death of the bee. I'm not a big bee fan and run when one gets close, but they are becoming scarce and are essential to life on our planet. Killing them off for a face cream seems a little over the top. However, in checking out venom suppliers, it turns out that the method of collection doesn't harm the bee. The bees are trained to eject venom against glass. They release venom when they feel threatened, and the beekeepers use different smells that trigger the response in their bees. The venom is collected from the glass and the bees go back to regular bee life until they are needed for another donation. The process is painstaking: One gram of venom from New Zealand, a major producer, is the equivalent of 10,000 bee stings.

I use it in the morning because I just like the way it makes my skin look after application. If you use a foundation, apply it over the Beenigma. I found it makes a nice base for face make up. I also use it at night after cleansing. If I can see that it's working, I'm happy. Too many products boast about "visible" results that need a magnifying glass to see. Beenigma won't take ten years off your face, but it will make the face you have look a little smoother, a little healthier. It helps with puffy eyes (but not those under-eye bags...they're usually filled with fat, not water and need to be treated surgically), makes your complexion glow.

I use the cream on my lips as well. Bee venom is often found in the better lip plumpers because it makes them lips look fuller and softens the vertical lines that make a face look tired and old, and that make lipstick ‘bleed' to me, that's worth $150, especially since a little of the product goes a very long way.

So, if you want an instant quick fix for your complexion, if you want your skin to look younger and healthier, your wrinkles to look less entrenched, you might want to consider Beenigma. Five rejuvenated stars for a skin care product that's more than hope in a jar."
- Lynne M.

"I received my Beenigma in the mail a week ago and have already noticed a significant difference in my skin. I have very dry skin and I've been using it on my face/neck and I started to notice a very supple youthful appearance right away. I'm awe struck on how effective it is around my crows feet area and above my lips. I'm so impressed by this product so far and i'm enjoying the compliments. I will highly recommended to my friends/family and will also give a few a holiday gifts this year."
- Rosemarie K.

"If I hadn't seen it with my own eyes (and felt it, too...) This product is beyond absolutely amazing! It is a 5 star +++ product! Many products claim fast results, but don’t really deliver as we hope. We are all looking for a skin product that helps with "seasoned" skin (I don't like the word "aging"). And we want to see results fast. Guess what? Here is your product! I have seen noticeable positive results OVERNIGHT! YES! You heard me right. OVERNIGHT!

On the evening of November 11, I began using this product. I used a gentle microdermabrasion cream on my face to clean away any dead skin cells so the cream could penetrate, followed by cleansing with a gentle plant-based cleanser. Without drying my face, I applied a light coating of Bee Nigma, massaging it into my face and neck. (Don’t forget your neck. It holds your face up.) I did not remove the product, but kept it on as a face cream. Within about an hour, I could feel noticeably softer facial skin. On the morning of November 12, approximately 8 hours later, I rinsed my face with cold water/wash cloth and reapplied Bee Nigma. About an hour later, I was driving to work and all of a sudden I could feel my face tightening. My skin was in pretty good shape anyway, but the velvety softness this product added to my skin was incredible. I have now been using the product for 10 days and I am loving it.

Some of the little things I have noticed:
— I keep touching my face because I cannot believe this new-found velvety softness, including the dry spot I always USED TO HAVE on the left side of my forehead. (GONE)
— I noticed how a washcloth GLIDES over my face.
— I noticed how my face retains its moisture now.
— I noticed how much more ALIVE my skin looks now.


I use the product as a cream, before bedtime and upon waking. I leave it on my skin. If I want to apply another face cream over it, I do so, but you don’t need to....

...Oh, BTW – I am not a 25 year old with skin that hasn’t had time to season. My skin has been 42 years old for the last 22 years. I am thrilled with this product and it has far exceeded my expectations! And, when you see an unexplained bright light coming from across a dimly lit room, it is probably just the glow coming from someone’s skin—someone who is using BEE NIGMA!

...If you try it, I believe you will be every bit as impressed as I am."
- Kathy W.

"I was hesitant to write this review sooner because I wasn't yet sure of the effects of this cream on my face. I wanted to be very sure I could be honest and say how well it did work. Both my daughters were the ones that pointed out the differences they saw on my face from using Beenigma Venom Cream. I had decided not to tell anyone I was using it to see if anyone saw the changes. One daughter saw my face up close and personal and the other daughter saw it on Facebook when I spoke with her. They both thought I had had some injections......so that is my testimony of this new product. I intend to keep using it as my daily moisturizer and as a night cream. I really do like it."
- Anne M.

"I have frown and forehead lines that are more more substantial than I would like. I have been applying Beenigma twice a day for about a month. Over this time frame, I have noticed an impact on the frown lines but not such a noticeable result on the forehead lines...

...As noted, I have used this product for about a month. At approximately two uses per day, I have used about a third of a jar. I anticipate that this jar will take me through January. I do not use a lot of product. It spreads easily on the face and is absorbed easily as well. It does not leave an overly shiny or greasy appearance...

...All in all, I think that this product has had an impact on my lines. It was a great day when I woke up and truly noticed some results taking place. I want to emphasize that it was not an overnight process. I have been fairly dedicated to applying this cream, and I think it could potentially work for others..."
- Angela E.

"... I've been applying Beenigma for a couple of weeks now and I am thrilled. I thought the last moisturizer I tried was amazing, but this stuff is even more amazing.

First, it is rich and thick. Others said that this is a wipe off treatment. I did not wipe it off, I used a smaller amount and rubbed it in very thoroughly. Because of the intensity of this product, not to mention the expense, I would also suggest using it either in conjunction with another lighter daily moisturizer, or as a twice a week intensive moisturizer... the stuff is that rich and that good.

For those with issues in terms of perfume, there was very light odor to this - nothing that would cause sensitivity or an allergic reaction, assuming of course that you aren't allergic to bees - those that are should most likely stay away from this product and the packaging information supports this thesis.

How does it work? Well, my skin looked and felt younger - both firmer and softer for a start, just like skin that is twenty years younger. There was no "stinging" or reaction when I applied the cream and it felt rich and thick. I think part of the expectation of sting may be the psychological association with bees - but there is nothing but luxury and pleasure in terms of application.

Firmer, softer, lighter are the words I would use to describe my skin after two weeks of use of this product. I don't have a lot of wrinkles, but those I do have, around the eyes and mouth look lessened to me. As I say above, this product is intense and I would suggest using it mixed with a lighter daily moisturizer or as a bi-weekly intensive treatment. I think this would be the best balance between benefit and cost.

All in all, I was thrilled with this product and I am even considering buying another jar when mine is empty... Very high recommendation."
- Anastasia M.

"I am a major skeptic when it comes to skin products. This was a gift and the product is amazing. Has a gentle subtle smell, is smooth as silk, and you do not need to lather it on your face like with some skin products. Isn't greasy feeling like other products. You cannot see or even feel it once it's on your skin. That is something that turned me off of other skin care products, even the expensive ones. Yes, it's a tad pricey, but your skin is worth it. Will be buying this product in the future. It's actually the only face product I use."
- Beth D.

"What a joy to watch wrinkle lines fill in and start to vanish within days of applying twice daily treatments of Beenigma! And if you use your hands to smooth this lotion around your face, you'll likely notice wrinkles on your hands vanish, too! I love how not only are wrinkles reduced, but this treatment also enhances a youthful flexibility and suppleness to one's skin, while also brightening it.

After using this product for two weeks, I saw dramatic improvement in my skin's smoothness, elasticity, and brightness that is truly remarkable… For the first week I smoothed the cream evenly around my face with a couple of fingers on my right hand. After a week of this, I began to notice that the skin on my right hand was looking and feeling surprisingly more youthful! Once I saw what a positive difference this cream makes, I began smoothing the cream with both hands, in order to enjoy the skin rejuvenation effects Beenigma provides.

This Beenigma product has a noticeable fragrance for the first fifteen to twenty minutes following application, that gradually fades away. A tiny amount (approximately half a teaspoon) is sufficient to cover my face (and hands) twice a day, and this cream has no residue, and is not sticky or greasy. I didn't experience any kind of allergic reaction, and have been more pleased with this product even than I would have thought I could be. Highly recommended!"
- Cynthia L.

"...Beenigma, in short, is an excellent beauty cream that definitely excels in making your face feel smoother, sexier, and confident. I followed the instructions on the bottle: after washing my face I used the cream once in the morning and once at night. With the dry heat from running the furnace, my skin dries out and sometimes cracks. With other products that I have used, I would have to reapply them every few hours. Beenigma, on the other hand, lasted a full twelve hours. Within two days, the cracks were gone completely...

If you are in the market for a high-quality beauty cream that does more than make your skin greasy, smell like a florist shop, and does more than layer chemicals onto your face with no noticeable improvement, Beenigma is a godsend. From the delicate fragrance to a cream that stays where you smear it without slowly dripping down your face, Beenigma will be the product that will bring you compliments...

If you have the money to spare and want to see a noticeable change without having to use multiple products, this is for you. A little bit goes a long way and bringing out a youthful glow makes Beenigma worth its weight in gold..."

"...A little goes a long way. I simply freckled my face with the moisturizer and rubbed it in. It feels, at first, that it would be hard to spread because it is thicker than the normal moisturizers I have used. But it melts like butter on your skin and spreads easily.

...I can say, honestly, that I have received two compliments on my skin in the past two weeks and that is something I haven’t heard very often since at the age of 30 my skin decided it wanted to act like it was in middle school!

What I like most besides the scent? The way it instantaneously soaks into your skin without you feeling greasy, heavy or clogged. It’s like you never put it on. The feel of it disappears although you are completely moisturized. I don’t wear makeup because I cannot stand the feel of anything on my face. This moisturizer was perfect in that way. It just became one with my skin… And after using it for almost a month, I still have quite a bit left – the majority of the jar. A little really goes go a long way!"

"I am 42 and I have fair skin. I have been outdoors a great deal in my life and I look like it... The Beenigma cream is beautifully packaged. It looks luxurious. The cream smells fabulous. It is a subtle sweet waxy smell that is very pleasant. The cream spreads beautifully and allows a little to go a long way. It leaves a barely tacky finish and is great under makeup. I had no problem with makeup slip while wearing this.

The results are the fun part. Beenigma claims to plump up your skin. And it really does. My saggy baggy skin has that fat thick look that I lost years ago. Lines are less noticeable. But this plump skin also looks fresher and brighter. Papery lines are gone. I have used other creams that made lines less noticeable. But this is the first cream that has ever plumped up my skin."

"I really like this face cream - it seems to tighten your skin instantly and feels very silky and luxurious! I clean my skin fully first and apply before bed. The cream seems to have no negative effects on my face...With long term use I can see this product really improving your skin moisture and reducing wrinkles. Recommended!"

"I was worried about this product at first, bee venom and my face? Well, I was pleasantly surprised there was no adverse reaction… I noticed a clear difference in my face, I do not have a lot of wrinkles, just a few laugh lines. While they are not completely gone they have faded. It has a really pleasant smell, which is important when it is going on your face. When first put on it has a cooling effect..."

"I read a lot of reviews before I purchased this as it's costly... I saw some awesome reviews... I only use small amounts on the areas that seem sunken in. This seems to smooth out my face in those areas... Like it swells the tissues, but no pain at all... I was worried I may be allergic so I tried a small amount on my hand first. Also I read where it helps in the long run because it stimulates these areas and causes more blood flow in turn more collagen. So it's a win win for me... I am 51 next week and I'm told I look about 40 a lot!!"
