I never really spend much thought on skincare until I started attending University about nearly 2 and a half years ago. I didn’t know much about cleansing and had never even heard of exfoliating. I’d use a moisturizer every once in a while if I could remember and very often would go to bed without removing my makeup because I just couldn’t be bothered.Oh how things have changed since then. I still wouldn’t call myself an expert or skincare fanatic but I’ve put together a morning and night time routine to keep my skin looking healthy and I do get very excited about trying new skincare products.
When I received the Bee Venom Night overnight gel* by Rodial I could not wait to try it. I’ve only ever heard amazing things about Rodial’s skincare, so I was very excited to be able to try one of their products.
First off some information about my skin type. I have pretty normal but sensitive skin that tends to get dry quite easily, especially in the colder months. Hence I’m always on the lookout for products, that keep my skin hydrated and moisturized.
Now on to the packaging. Obviously it’s yellow (I’m guessing that is name related) combined with silver. What I really like about the packaging is that the little round container comes with an integrated pump, so it is easier to get the right amount of product without wasting any, especially since it is a rather expensive product.
Since my skin is relatively sensitive I’m always really hesitant when straying away from my usual products because many moisturizers I’ve tried would feel quite stingy on my skin when I first applied them. However, this one felt incredibly nice and gentle on my skin and I really enjoyed massaging it into my skin.
So Rodial promises that this product “plumps and firms wrinkle appearance, minimises the appearance of pores, evens out skin and improves skin elasticity” The been venom is supposed to plump up your skin and therefore achieve a younger looking complexion.
Now I’m only 20 and thankfully do not have any wrinkles yet but I have still noticed quite the difference in my skin. In the morning my skin now looks a lot more glowing and awake. It feels softer and definitely more hydrated. I’ve also noticed that now my foundation looks a lot better when applied because my skin is not as nearly dry anymore.
To conclude I’m really happy with the hydrating gel because it really does keep my skin hydrated and saves it from getting dry. I’ve noticed that my skin looks a lot more healthy and glowy in the morning and the product itself feels so luxurious and nice on my skin.
Have you tried any Rodial Skincare? What would you recommend?
