Bee products are some of the world's most effective natural repairing and healing substances. Guerlain Research has been working continuously with honey and royal jelly to create Abeille Royale: a skincare program that scientifically proves its exceptional capacity to minimize the visible signs of aging on the skin. As amazing as the cause that Guerlain is supporting and a part of, I would really like to explain a little about the history and cause before I shift my focus to the two new moisturizers I have started included in my skincare routine. Abeille Royale Day & Night Cream are the newest additions to my Abeille Royale skincare routine.
Honey is the key ingredient – for its healing power and revitalizing properties – not just for ingestion but also for application on the skin. There are two kinds of honey that are exclusive to Guerlain:
Ouesssant Honey – The quest for the most powerful bee products led Guerlain to Ouessant, one of the world’s purest ecosystems. Designated a biosphere reserve by UNESCO, this island off the coast of France is home to the Black Bee, a native species of the island. These bees produce a honey of unrivaled purity and truly exceptional properties: a “Grand Cru” honey. Rich in amino acids, trace elements, and high in fructose content, this honey offers the essential ingredients that are vital in the repair process of skin tissue.
Guerlain Exclusive Royal Jelly is the most precious substance that is produced by bees. It is fed to queen bees and thus, offers regal nourishment for the skin as well. Guerlain developed its own Exclusive Royal Jelly in order to guarantee its quality and purity. Guerlain has chosen to host the 200 hives, exclusively dedicated to the ABEILLE ROYALE skincare range, in La Ferté Saint-Aubin in Sologne, a region renowned for its wild fauna. This Royal Jelly is rich in exceptional nutrients and is a natural source of carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and vitamins. They produce it in a protected environment to ensure that the Royal Jelly is of optimal quality and to guarantee complete traceability.
There is a beautiful video (linked here) which I have watched a few times already. It gives a visual treat to the eyes and depicts the story behind the Black Bee of Ouessant, whose royal jelly grants us the most healing benefits.
Guerlain believes that transparency and sustainability are the keys to preserve, develop, and pass our unique beauty heritage onto future generations. Therefore, Guerlain has entirely remade Abeille Royale's jars for a design that's more in step with nature. These jars are lighter and more compact. Moreover, they offer up all the same capacity, just using 90% recycled glass.
Inspired by the latest discoveries in neuroscience, BlackBee Repair technology expands the skin’s self-regeneration capacity. That is for more comprehensive efficacy on the visible signs of aging. Thus, the Abeille Royale range of creams helps for smoother, firmer, and more radiant skin. BlackBee Repair Technology has a derivative of vitamin C . With its revitalizing properties to help enhance the radiance of the complexion.
Guerlain Abeille Royale Day Cream combines BlackBee Repair technology and a vitamin C derivative to firm the skin, smooth wrinkles and fine lines, and visibly enhance the radiance of the complexion. Moreover, the cream's silky, exceptionally fine texture offers optimal comfort without leaving a greasy film.
Guerlain Abeille Royale Night Cream combines BlackBee Repair technology and a vitamin E derivative to help combat slackening. It firms the skin and smoothes wrinkles and fine lines. Also, the cream's balm-like texture melts gently on the skin, without leaving a greasy film.
Both the Abeille Royale Day & Night Cream are suitable for all skin types, even sensitive ones. In addition, I also love my favorite Youth Watery Oil (reviewed here) and Double R Serum (reviewed here). These day and night creams complete my Guerlain Abeille Royale Skincare routine. In conclusion, my skin looks fresh, supple, and youthful.
