Bzzzz….Bee Venom Mask – a Botox alternative?


The next time you see or hear a bee buzzing nearby, you may want to think twice about smacking them to death with a magazine or shoe.

Thanks to the Duchess of Cornwall (Prince Charles’s wife), a face mask made of bee venom will now be available all over salons in China.

Say NO to Botox, Yes to...Bee Venom?

This bee venom mask (which the Duchess is a huge fan of)  is being promoted as an organic alternative to Botox in smoothing lines and delaying the aging process. According to the UK-based Heaven by Deborah Mitchell brand, the “magic bee venom ingredient works to control the facial muscles for immediate lifting, tightening and firming, whilst getting to work on frown lines and wrinkles.”

Mitchell now has a 10-year distribution to sell bee-venom treatments and products including cleansers, toners, moisturizers, and cellulite creams across Heaven by Deborah Mitchell stores and salons in China.

Heaven stores are already in other Asian countries like Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Macau, and Japan.

 I’m not sure about this one folks.

Not sure if “organic” is the right way to describe this new skincare trend since Mitchell doesn’t elaborate on how she’s getting the bee venom. If my memory serves me right, don’t bees die when they leave their stinger inside their prey/enemy? So how many bees are being sacrificed to make just one teaspoon of bee venom in a bee venom face mask jar?

Really makes you wonder what we’re willing to sacrifice in the name of beauty
